A place for comments or questions on my fiction, or else just for general chat!

It's an important moment in his relationship with Imrahil too, I think: where he allows himself to take control, rather than letting Imrahil guide or speak for him. And speaking and silence are important motifs in the story too.

Oh for sure! The whole exchange in Faramir's office between them - where he basically tells Imrahil to mind his own business - through the end of the story, it was facinating watching this alteration of their relationship. I am looking forward to seeing more interactions between them, set after Faramir has come into his own as father and husband. Maybe that first visit to Dol Amroth with the kids? (hint hint)Is that when Eowyn sees the sea for the first time?

I don't know if I've said it before, but I think that GoC really did a good job of capturing the potential pitfalls within marriage: not trusting, not talking, not forgiving, the knowledge of when to speak and when to be silent. Not realizing that you may be talking but are each saying different things, or the meaning is taken completely (or subtly) wrong. Poor Faramir - after growing up with such a poor example of father and husband, no wonder it takes him a while to get on track. Everyone has the adjustment period; theirs was just tougher than usual.
