Ioreth! What a thought... Yes, she would be a great one to tell what life in Minas Tirith is really like. Some of the most interesting history is not written in any book!

Haha, I've always been most interested in all the little details of life - the "cabbages and potatoes" so to speak. Like that scene where Frodo says he's writing a book, and the Bree hobbits all start talking all at once, trying to tell him every little piece of trivial information they can think of about what life in Bree is like - I really wish Tolkien could have written pages and pages of material about that, because I would have loved to read it! I'd love to know little things, like where the hobbits got their tea from, and what sort of government Bree had, and who ran the Forsaken Inn, and what the high-society of Gondor was like, etc, etc.
