For the fanfiction readers, I have just posted a new chapter for Hands of the King, Ch. 51 - Hope Click on the story title to go to the overview, click on the chapter name to go to the chapter. No warnings for this chapter. Well, except for an overly happy High Warden...
1 of 3 Denethor POVs. A few days in July as Denethor enjoys the fact that Finduilas finally is pregnant. Many small sub-plots are woven in to set up events further down the road. Mr. Grumpy has very little time in which to be anything except happy, quite an unusual experience for him. Brandir gets to say "I told you so" in his own, dear way. Not many conversations, but a lot of observation. Denethor is about to embark on six of the happiest months of his life.
For people who aren't familiar with HotK, it is a fanfiction novel, published a chapter at a time. It chronicles the courtship and marriage of Denethor and Finduilas. A new chapter usually appears every 2 to 3 weeks.
