For the "Mother" challenge.
Éowyn would have been surprised to learn how Arwen envied her - not for gallant Faramir, nor her busy, purposeful life in Ithilien, but for how relaxed Éowyn was in motherhood, the delight she took in her children.
Arwen had had few playmates, and none younger; her childhood songs were the furthest thing imaginable from the playful ditties Éowyn sang. Surreptitiously Arwen studied how Éowyn interacted with her children, joyfully, without sacrificing authority or respect. How does she do that? Arwen wondered; if it were a skill to be learned, like archery, or an instinct to be embraced, like breathing.
