Éowyn   9

Hope Prevails, by eyeus
Slash. "You are a warrior," says Aragorn. "Of Gondor." His hand closes tight over Boromir's shoulder, as if lending Boromir his strength, tethering him to life. "Is there one for whom you fight? A lady-love?"

In his agony from the Uruk's wounds, Boromir's answer is entirely too honest. "A brother," he gasps. "I have a brother." In arms, in blood, and in bond.

"Then think of him, and live," Aragorn commands. "He will look for your coming from the White Tower, and you will return home to him."

The Stonework was Admirable, by Culumacilinte
Het. "Whatever I understand, I know that you have won renown and glory on the field, and shown yourself to be mighty in arms, and fearless, and fair. And I know that you are a lady of great heart, and that it is softer than you have made it. And that I would not for my life have you made less than you are. And I would wed you, and live with you in peace, as Éowyn, or Dernhelm, or whoever you wish. And what I do not yet understand, I will learn, and gladly."

Tolkien's Prose Style and its Literary and Rhetorical Effects | Michael D.C. Drout
While J.R.R. Tolkien's prose style in The Lord of the Rings has been both attacked and defended, its details have seldom been analyzed in terms of specific aesthetic effects. 1 This lacuna in Tolkien criticism is certainly understandable, given the perceived necessity of first defending Tolkien's work as a worthy object of serious literary (rather than sociological or pop-cultural) study: critics have spent much effort countering ill-informed and even logically contradictory claims about Tolkien's work, and the discussion of writing style has had to be given short shrift in the effort to make the study of Tolkien academically respectable. 2 But the analytical neglect of Tolkien's prose style has had the unfortunate effect of ceding important ground to Tolkien's detractors, who, with simple, unanalyzed quotations, point to some word or turn of phrase and, in essence, sniff that such is not the stuff of good literature. 3 I would even contend that a reaction against Tolkien's non-Modernist prose style is just as influential in the rejection of Tolkien by traditional literary scholars as is Modernist antipathy to the themes of his work, the ostensible political content of The Lord of the Rings, the popularity of the books, or even Tolkien's position outside the literary mainstream of his day (all of which have been well documented and countered by recent critics). 4
