Ch. 25 – Plans

Plans – Denethor POV – 1 of 6

In which Denethor thinks about plans that have all gone to hell, his own and others, recently overturned and things in the past.


And we’re back to Denethor’s perspective. He’s not quite sure what to do when he actually wins. He can’t deal with love, so he takes refuge in politics and family in-fighting. And, oh boy, but does the (extended) Steward’s family know how to mix it up…

A friend of mine once commented that Denethor is like a cat that falls off a ledge and then looks around as if to say “I meant to do that.”

There’s a lot happening Casa Anglachel at the moment, but I am going to do my best to put up a new chapter every couple days.

  1. Oh Denethor! It pains me to see you stoop to the level of Beruthiel. Even if you enjoy it (somewhat). Play in the muck if you must, but not with your love.

    Heh, that’s a great description.

    Sorry no comments for a while, been traveling and hosting… but rest assured I’ve been reading when I can. A recent sleepless night in a tent was made much better when I saw an update. (Thank the Valar for widespread cell reception…)

  2. Hi Wheelrider,

    I’ve come to a pause in the posting, so you have time to catch up. I’ve got Real Life stuff to take care of for a few days, then will return with Finduilas’ POV chapters.

    Denethor will come to regret what he’s doing, be sure of that. It will play out in some very ugly ways. It also reflects the few comments JRRT makes about their relationship, as observed by others, that Denethor “loved her after his fashion” (or something close to that), which I’m presenting as a combination of his original disinformation campaign plus his own reticence about public displays of affection. Those who love them will know that they love.

    Keep an eye on Brandir. He only gets more important as the story goes along. He is the Fool to Denethor’s Lear.
