LOTR Chapters On Screen: The Two Towers - Book III
'Now Théoden son of Thengel, will you hearken to me?' said Gandalf. 'Do you ask for help?' He lifted his staff and pointed to a high window. There the darkness seemed to clear, and through the opening could be seen, high and far, a patch of shining sky. 'Not all is dark. Take courage, Lord of the Mark; for better help you will not find. No counsel have I to give to those that despair. Yet counsel I could give, and words I could speak to you. Will you hear them? They are not for all ears. I bid you come out before your doors and look abroad. Too long have you sat in shadows and trusted to twisted tales and crooked promptings.'
- Book III, Chapter VI: The King of the Golden Hall

Maglor, at the end of the Third Age...
...stands shoulder to shoulder with Elrond as both distantly gaze out over the sea the night before the Ring-bearer's ship is to leave.
"It is a strange thing," Maglor says after some moments of silence, "to laugh even a little after spending so long in loneliness and despair."
"Bilbo Baggins is a singular hobbit," Elrond replies, tone a mixture of proud and mysteriously wistful. "I am of the opinion of Mithrandír Olórin in that hobbits are good for the soul. Especially the Elven constitution."
Maglor tries to pretend at dignified silence before he erupts once more into snorting laughter.
"He called me lad," he chuckles softly as he shakes his head, overcome with the absurdity that is Bilbo Baggins. "He called me lad and then asked how long I was going to wallow in my griefs like a child pouting over spilt milk."
Elrond turns to look at his once kidnapper turned foster-father, silver eyes shining with the remnants of a Silmaril, his unique Maiaran heritage, and aged like only the old and wise Eldar can account, his lips turned up in a half smile that set his face into a mask of mischief.
"I quite look forward to the havoc he wreaks in Elvenhome. Valar know he has brought enough to my own house these past years."

This is my idea concept for a mother for Celebrimbor from Tolkien’s lore. She is not mentioned at all in the stories, but as Celebrimbor is one of, if not my favourite character from middle earth history I’ve been trying to expand upon his character in my head, and that included trying to consider who his mother might be, lol.
I’ve tentatively named her Mísil. I think that she died when Celebrimbor was quite young, but when she was alive she was a very positive role model in his life, unlike his father Curufin, who in the lore he later ended up disowning, lol. Celebrimbor also made lots of jewellery for her as he was studying to become a blacksmith.
I literally have SO much more story and character ideas planned out for her, but I don’t want to make this post too much longer. I’d love to do other character designs for other characters in the Silmarillion & middle earth history!

So I’ve been thinking about Éowyn’s relationship with Rohan.
She’s strongly aligned with Rohan in the main text of LOTR. For instance, when she faces the Witch-king after identifying herself, we hear:
Still she did not blench: maiden of the Rohirrim, child of kings, slender but as a steel-blade, fair yet terrible.
Despite her substantial Númenórean ancestry, this is how she describes her background to Faramir:
“Then must I leave my own people, man of Gondor?” she said. “And would you have your proud folk say of you: ‘There goes a lord who tamed a wild shieldmaiden of the North! Was there no woman of the race of Númenor to choose?”
As far as I can tell, Éowyn identifies wholly as one of the Rohirrim and definitely thinks of herself as non-Númenórean. Fandom brings up her grandmother’s ancestry pretty often, but it doesn’t seem to factor into Éowyn’s identity or presentation in the body of LOTR; it’s not until the Appendices that she’s associated with Morwen in any way at all.
At the same time, a lot of her attraction to Aragorn is wrapped up in her desire to escape Rohan and what it’s come to represent for her—a place where she feels caged and trapped. As Gandalf says,
“But who knows what she spoke to the darkness, alone, in the bitter watches of the night, when all her life seemed shrinking, and the walls of her bower closing in about her, a hutch to trammel some wild thing in?”
Aragorn himself says:
“I say to you that she loves you [Éomer] more truly than me; for you she loves and knows; but in me she loves only a shadow and a thought: a hope of glory and great deeds, and lands far from the fields of Rohan.”
Éowyn didn’t just desire to be a queen, but to be a queen away from Rohan. Of course, that desire ultimately shifts, or she realizes that it wasn’t what she truly wanted, and it was tied to a specific phase of her life in Rohan. But I do wonder what she thinks and feels about Rohan at the end of the day, when her marriage does take her far from the fields of Rohan and make her, let’s be real, the next thing to a queen.
How does Éowyn feel about Rohan as she prepares for her marriage? How does she feel after it, in Ithilien? How does that feeling factor into the way she chooses to go about her life as a Gondorian princess? I feel like it could actually be very complex for her.
