Demon – Denethor POV – 2 of 2
In which Denethor understands what is left for him to do.
Some promises should never be made.
Get – Finduilas POV – 3 of 4
In which the Warden gets testy, the Monster gets her way, the Quartermaster gets an ultimatum, the Prince gets a new grandchild, and the Steward gets what he wants.
And all of the children running around. I think I need to put together another appendix chapter and list out who all has been born, and to whom, in the Steward’s line. It’s a lot.
Due – Denethor POV – 4 of 4
In which the idyllic sojourn comes to an end and things too long deferred come due.
Money, respect, and obligations are all owed. Giving people their due, due to arrive, and in due time. Boy, oh boy, but does a certain elusive captain owe a whole bunch of people a great deal, especially his uncle.
Recovery – Finduilas POV – 1 of 2
In which Finduilas understands that he wants her back.
There is a lot of recovery going on. Recovering from a season of war, from Thorongil’s departure, and from the threat of civil war. There is also recovering lost ground, usurped territory, and over-extended expectations. Most of all, there is recovering from the damage that this has inflicted on the hearts and psyches of the survivors.
