Two ladies of Rohan--generations apart, but both have their losses to deal with.
A drabble sequence originally written for Legendarium Ladies April (on Tumblr) and the prompts of the Old English Writings challenge at Tolkien Weekly (on LiveJournal).
The sequence begins with two riddles--which is why you will find neither of the two ladies in the character list.
Solutions to the riddles were supplied by Zdenka and are linked to from the chapter notes.
Minor change to titles: on AO3 the sequence is called "Two Rohirrim", with "Two Ladies of Rohan" the title of Chapter I
