Princes of Dol Amroth

By:Isabeau
 February, 25 2006

Questions about the life and times of Imrahil and his family can be asked here, including questions about Ultimatums, Kin-Strife and the shorter stories. Discussions about Brand can go either here or in the Best-Loved Son thread, since his stories sort of overlap both cycles.

 [91] Welcome back, short stuff!

*waves frantically!*

I might even get a chance to read the new chapter of Kin-Strife now too!

 [92] Hi Altariel, not your fault, I just have no patience.

I supose teaching commitments are the oposite of my learning commitments, although you are far more dedicated than me, I read the chapter in class when I was meant to be writing an assignment on the co-operation between European public services and the role played by Europol and Interpol.

What is the story about anyway?

Sadly, if I started reading in class, people would notice (since I'm the one directing the discussion!). But I'd read if I could get away with it.

I can't remember how much we've mentioned now... Er, it'll have Faramir in it! ;-D

 [94] Basically as far as I know Isabeau said it has a bit about Andra, Boromir and poetry in it but thats about it.

 [95] In Silver Swan you have Aragorn say that he doesn't consider himself as a good teacher for weapons training. From the 4th chapter of Kin-Strife I got the impression that he indeed trained the guard of MT. Did I misunderstand this - perhaps he didn't train them, they merely improved by his example?

I forgot to mention (been wrestling with a new story) that I thought this was a very interesting idea. It does sort of explain why he's being such a git-he's distracted!

I think what you have here is Aragorn being hard on himself. He's probably a perfectly good teacher. But he compares himself to people like Glorfindel and Andra and sees himself coming up short.

Ah, I see. And added to that: while Glorfindel and Andra are teachers by profession, and have been consistently for a long while, Aragorn was and is not (at least not consistently).

 [99] Regarding Nargil's question about why the Swan Knights didn't stay at the King's House in Pelargir ... isn't it possible that that was one of the things that fell into neglect during the latter years of Denethor's rule? Between not wanting to owe Denethor any favors, and requiring adequate facilities (which perhaps no longer existed at the King's House?), perhaps Imrahil & Andrahar just fell into the habit of staying at the inn?

 [100] My theory was the fact that it was now Aragorn's house, maybe it was being re-dcorated?
