So it is in the days that follow when Éowyn and Faramir meet together the difficult yet wonderful journey towards true union that marriage gives us. “If goodness lead him not then weariness may toss him to God's breast”. There are many things I love about the Peter Jackson Lord of the My issue is with the way they had Eowyn moon over Aragorn in the films. . Yet I still miss that relationship because it says so much about both characters. Éowyn has captured the hearts of Lord of the Rings' fans as a proud, a little more about the relationship between Éowyn and Faramir as they.
Eowyn in the books is a very cold, very unhappy, character. Like have a life of any kind.

In the book, Eomer has a major realization after that, that he might not really have ever known his sister. This is a bit of a running theme when it comes to Eowyn.
Her life is exactly what she most fears: She has a lot of very good reasons to feel trapped and bitter. She sees a leader, someone with strength and resolve.
Someone worth following into battle, which she longs to do, and maybe most notably: Now, once Gandalf fixes Theoden everyone goes off to do Important Things and sort of forgets about her.
Now that the king is better no one seems to consider what she wants out of life, what her hopes or dreams are, what she can contribute beyond helping the men be more manly. Unfortunately, once she meets Aragorn, things start to get wonky. Not because I have any problem with romantic storylines! My issue is with the way they had Eowyn moon over Aragorn in the films.
And it hinges on a key scene from the book that they left out completely.

And she calls him on it. But when the men have died in battle and honour, you have leave to be burned in the house, for the men will need it no more. But I am of the House of Eorl and not a serving-woman.
I can ride and wield blade, and I do not fear either pain or death. Full of sexist shit, in fact. This matters because A.
The closest we get is the line about women in that country knowing that those without swords can still die upon them and fearing neither death nor pain…but it lacks the context and direct confrontation of sexism that the book provides. Faramir was the only one left — brought back into Minas Tirith by being dragged behind his horse.
Not his finest moment. Now we come to The Funeral Pyre. This is the moment when you see that Denathor has truly gone off his rocker. Hence, The Funeral Pyre. In the Extended Edition, one of my favorite scenes from the book is included — the House of Healing. Romantic plot line 2. In the valleys of our hills there are flowers fair and bright, and maidens fairer still; but neither flower nor lady have I seen till now in Gondor so lovely, and so sorrowful.

It may be that only a few days are left ere darkness falls upon our world, and when it comes I hope to face it steadily; but it would ease my heart, if while the Sun yet shines, I could see you still. For you and I have both passed under the wings of the Shadow, and the same hand drew us back.
You will be better prepared to face it in your own manner, if while there is still time you do as the Healer commanded.
You and I, we must endure with patience the hours of waiting. This is basically my favorite scene in the entire Extended Edition. There is no warmth left in the sun. It grows so cold. I do not believe this darkness will endure.
Her intentions are not pure nor are they honorable. They are not loving for there is the stain of selfishness in them.
And I am enough of a romantic to believe there is no room for selfishness in love. She does not love the man Aragon, she loves the idea of him.

Eowyn and Faramir relationship
He too has had to suffer the insignificancy of his place within the big picture. But unlike her he permits for his compassion, it is the hallmark of his personality.
She chooses a cold marble like mask to conceal her frustration and ire, he the courage of his true character. I believe it is the kindness and compassion that Eowyn confronts in Faramir that finally shatters her illusions about herself.
He, who has endured so much yet has lived his life with such grace and sincerity. Through his unselfish love of her she begins to recognize the truth within herself.
It is not instantaneous as she is a too proud person and enlightenment comes slowly. But eventually, through Faramir's gentle yet firm urgings is she at last able to live her life authentically and let drop her mask becoming capable of entering into a true and mature love.
I guess my answer wasn't as short as I thought it would be.
