For the fanfiction readers, I have just posted a new chapter for Hands of the King, Ch. 54 - Union Click on the story title to go to the overview, click on the chapter name to go to the chapter.
Third of three Denethor POVs. Mild warning for description of a room after childbirth. Probably a little "Eeeew!" factor, but work safe.
The chapter covers from late July to late December, 2978. The theme for the chapter is union, and has three main events - the impending nuptial union of Wren and Marlong, a consideration of political unity as Denethor and Thorongil talk strategy, and the birth of Boromir, fruit of the union between Denethor and Finduilas.
A major exchange between Thorongil and Denethor, substantial conversations with Finduilas and Wren, plus minor exchanges with many other characters. Can't say exactly who, as that would be a spoiler.
This chapter is offered today as thanks for the wonderful work of my great betas and in appreciation of HotK's many readers.
