Characters: Gondorian OFC
Warnings: reference to canonical character death
Disclaimer: I connected two of Tolkien's mentions of Gondorian cheese and filled in a bit of background. (The quotation accompanying the prompt mentioned "good red cheese" in Henneth Annun.)
On Forlong's estate in Lossarnach, she makes cheese. The days are dark, the shadows of war deepen, but people still need food, soldiers rations, so she continues to add rennet to curdle the milk, salting the curds and pressing them into their mould. Her cheeses are eaten by Forlong himself, served by Targon in the Citadel, shared by Faramir with men and guests from afar.
On the day the War ends, she will stand, her fingers dripping with whey, weeping tears of joy mingled with tears of grief for her lord, hewed unhorsed by axes on the Pelennor Fields.
