Fan Fic: Lothíriel

Lothíriel is just a name in Appendix A of The Lord of the Rings. The book says that Éomer King of Rohan "wedded Lothíriel, daughter of Imrahil."

Lothíriel by JunoMagic is a story about another Lothíriel. Her mother named her after the book character. This Lothíriel lives in Germany and wants to escape her life. Then she walks through a rainbow and falls into The Lord of the Rings, where she becomes the story's Tenth Walker. This is a rare Tenth Walker story that follows the books, not the movies. It also extends beyond the end of The Lord of the Rings, as it becomes the love story of Éomer and Lothíriel, and totals 474,627 words in 110 chapters.

Lothíriel has an Mature rating, because of sex (not explicit) in a few chapters. The story is a serious Medieval European Fantasy and presents Gondor and Rohan as medieval countries, borrowing customs from real history.

JunoMagic also made a cover image and the "Drabbles about Lothíriel and Drabbles of Rohan".

Lothíriel by JunoMagic provides examples of:

  • Accidental Misnaming: Lothíriel is from Germany. Many other Germans call her "Losíriel" because they can't say the English "th" sound.
  • Bonus Material: "Drabbles about Lothíriel and Drabbles of Rohan"
  • Distant Finale: Chapter 110 "Epilogue" skips ahead some decades.
  • In-Series Nickname: The hobbits shorten Lothíriel to "Lothy", and Lothíriel herself shortens Míriel to "Míri" and Meluir to "Mel".
  • No Periods, Period: Chapter 12 "Preparations for the Journey", puts the idea that the elves never bleed during their periods. "They reabsorbed whatever they had done to get ready once a month to conceive a child." Lothíriel does not have periods because her birth-control implant suppresses them.
  • OC Stand-in: Lothíriel was just a name in Appendix A of LoTR. The story titled Lothíriel is about a different Lothíriel who lives in Germany, but then she falls into The Lord of the Rings, where she stands in for the other Lothíriel.
  • Officially Shortened Title: Lothíriel had a longer title, Lothíriel - The Tenth Walker! Novel, but JunoMagic shortened it.
  • One Steve Limit: Lothíriel from Germany falls into The Lord of the Rings, but that story already has a Lothíriel. Now it might have two characters named Lothíriel, and they might meet.
  • Translator Microbes: When Lothíriel enters Middle-earth, she suddenly knows Westron. The magic does not translate anything; it only causes her to know another language. Lothíriel still can't read the local alphabets, nor speak Sindarin, nor Rohirric, unless she learns them the hard way.
  • Trapped in Another World: Lothíriel from Germany falls into Middle-earth. She likes Middle-earth, despite its medieval culture and lack of technology, and would not return to Germany if she had the chance.
