HotK - Ch. 66 - Speculation

For the fanfiction readers, I just posted a chapter for Hands of the King, Ch. 66 - Speculation. Click on the story title to go to the overview, click on the chapter name to go to the chapter.

2 of 2 Finduilas POVs. Warning for explicit sex scene.

This is an introspective chapter. Finduilas has had a series of shocks, and is now having to ask what is going to become of her, Denethor and those she loves. She will be thinking more explicitly about the fact that she is a ringer for two other women, and how that plays out as being one of the losers in the drama of Arda. It also is a play on "speculum" and the invasion of her mental and physical integrity by various others - Sauron, Denethor, the mariner, Mithrandir, Boromir, and Thorongil, to name the most obvious. There limits to how much control she has over the use of mind and body by others.

Major scenes with Denethor, Luinil, and Laanga.
