Isabeau's Journal

By:Isabeau
 November, 12 2005

OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.

 [91] 3. Oops! Just realized my error - Rhovanion, not Rohan. Where in Rhovanion did she come from? This is the eastern side of the Misty Mtns, yes? (I don't actually consider this asking another question, BTW, but just revising one!)

 [92] Isabeau: Unfortunately, this particular story answers the question of who Heth ends up with.

Rebecca: That knowledge certainly wouldn't stop me from reading with impatient relish any new installment in any of your stories, Isabeau!

Depetrash:I second Rebecca's statement heartily.

Me too, this may be one of those it's best not to mention.......

As for Faramir being related to them, is it a link from the fact Imrahil is Faramir's uncle or is it that one of Faramir's children married one of Aragorns?

Also somthing just clicked in my head, Andra dies in 3036, is that why Imri looked so sad in Heth's vission in the mirror?

Do we get to see any more of the 'bad' esquires from Kinstrife, I know Golasgil was in Trust but do we meet the others again?

Also where does Esteven come from?

Tell's about twenty. And no, not yet. Names are a sore spot for me.

2. All these royal family intermarriages... I gathered from here and elsewhere that Aragorn and Arwen had at least one daughter and Eldarion. Eldarion married the daughter of Heth and The-Man-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named. Elboron had Barahir and a daughter, at least, and the daughter married one of Tell's father's two brothers? So Tell is Heth's great-grandson and Barahir's nephew... How is he also Faramir's great-grandson?

Because his mother is Faramir's granddaughter.

It would be fun to see the Unabeauverse family tree that you and Altariel are working from - maybe you can post it on your personal website one day (with appropriate names blanked out, of course). ;)

Censored geneology chart, huh? Not sure how useful that would really be...;-)

3. Is Heth now living with Lothiriel & Eomer's descendants? She came from Rohan, apparently, and that would be a convenient mid-point between North and South.

As you later realized, she was in Rhovanion, not Rohan. She spends a fair bit of time out in the Wild at this point in her life.

4. I hope, among all yours & Altariel's story ideas that are waiting to be written, that we can see Heth's last meeting with Aragorn and Arwen one day. Her perspective on Aragorn & Arwen's respective attitudes to the King's conscious passing would be very interesting. Does Heth possess the same ability to pass on at will?

I've thought about doing that, but nothing concrete has come up. She's pretty good friends with Arwen, I know that. As far as passing at will goes-I don't think she'll get the opportunity.

5. Where did she get the leg injury? Late in life or early?

Can't say just yet, but it's not all that far off.

 [94] Wow, Isabeau, I just read Stud Fee, which was the only of your stories (that I know of) that I haven't read yet. I hesitated to read it for a while, because while consensual encounters between Andrahar and Boromir (or Imri), or other characters whose homosexuality or bisexuality is plausible doesn't trouble me in the least, a coerced encounter between Eomer and Elladan made me squeamish. Eomer, especially as you've characterized him (and I'm one of those who, having read your stories, finds it impossible to think of Middle Earth now without your characterizations & original characters), is so straight.

But it really worked -- and was definitely hot! Wow! And it finally shed some light on the enigma that is Elladan. Oooo, I like him. He is masterful and cool and very very sexy.

Regardless of where Hethlin ends up, or with whom, I hope you'll someday find a way to give us the story of Elladan returning the Eagle's feather.

No, Imri wasn't wounded the day Andra died. The vision is about something else entirely.

You might see Golasgil from time to time, and I'm thinking of making a relative of his an esquire after the Ring War. And Jerulas is Valyon's daughter-they've both got such an exalted opinion of themselves that it just had to be.

Also where does Esteven come from?

Esteven is the son of a half-Haradric taverner in Dol Amroth. Andrahar patronizes his restaraunt from time to time-though the food isn't really the food from his provice, it's as close as he can get. Esteven was a big, strong boy with a chip on his shoulder because of his bit of Haradric blood (that's why he's a little on the swarthy side), and he was perpetually getting into trouble. The taverner asked Andrahar for some advice and Andrahar took the boy under his wing instead. Since Esteven liked horses, he got him a job at the stables, and told him that if he learned to read and write, Andrahar would make him an esquire. I think Andrahar let him sit classes in the palace. Esteven did learn to read and write and Andrahar sponsored him into the Swan Knights. He's cleaned up right well, don't you think?

Am I allowed to say that is a good thing or does it sound awfull cold of me.

And yes Esteven did do well for himself, has Andra rescued anyone else?

I'm very glad you liked it, Rebecca. It was my very first piece of slash fiction, and I wrote it as a birthday prezzie for Soledad, who had requested an encounter between Eomer and Elladan. Like you said, I think Eomer is totally straight, so I was having trouble envisaging getting him into bed in a way that didn't violate my conception of Elves and their character. I got to thinking of what could possibly tempt Eomer...and came up with a very special horse. After tht, the title and the framework for the story came pouring right out.

It wasn't ever supposed to be published, but she persuaded me to do it eventually. It's also one of the few things of mine that my husband has read. I told him it was smutty, and he didn't believe me...

Can't remember if I put it in the timeline or not, but for a long time I was adamant that it wasn't part of the Hethverse. Now I'm not so sure. It is a piece I'm rather fond of.




Regardless of where Hethlin ends up, or with whom, I hope you'll someday find a way to give us the story of Elladan returning the Eagle's feather.

I'll put it on my list of things to mull over.

Well, you might want to reserve judgment about it being a good thing till you see the circumstances under which it happens...

And yes Esteven did do well for himself, has Andra rescued anyone else?

If he has, he hasn't told me about them yet.

I'm contemplating (actually have outlined)a story about Brand finding out that Boromir was Andrahar's lover. Brand doesn't take the news particularly well because he's totally straight.

 [99] Although I'm very much looking forward to reading Altariel's story with those spoilers, I'm actually hoping she will wait with posting until you have caught up, Isabeau. I'm fairly horrible when it comes to spoilers, I just can never resist any temptation like that.

And then to have it put before my very nose, so to speak ;). I say, better remove the temptation as far away as possible...


Imhiriel

...hoping she can stand the suspense long enough before starting to nag the authors ;)...

Ah, it's hardly fair to ask everyone to else to wait, don't you think? Seems to me that if a story is posted with obvious spoiler warnings, those who wish to wait can do so. We shouldn't all be held hostage to one's unreconciled wish to wait and inability to do so... that rationale would remove chocolate ice-cream from all grocery stores!

The harder part would be to get folks to hold their tongues in discussions like this. That really wouldn't be fair to readers who want to wait, and more importantly unfair to Isabeau, as people might be inclined to ask her questions whose answers would require her to address things she hasn't written about yet.
