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.
I've been a lurker around the really brilliant Unabeauverse stories for quite some time, and I found this megathread trying to find the answer to a question I had.
First thing I found was the timeline of the unabeauverse stories on the first page of this journal - which was really helpful in sorting out every story's relationship to the others. I saw a name that I hadn't seen before though - 'The Last Log of the Foam-flyer'. It's marked as a WIP in 2005.
Question is: Was 'The Last Log of the Foam-flyer' ever completed? Or is it just that I don't know where to look?
And to reopen the 'Who will Heth nest with' debate *mischevious grin* - a while back someone commented about Faramir's vision in front of Heth in CMC, and how they extrapolated who Heth will nest with from that. I always interpreted it as a reference back to Luthien and Beren - the birds as a reference to their shape-changing adventures and unique experience of Death. I thought Faramir just had another of those historical flashbacks, like Numernor's wave - but now thinking back I can see it might be an indication of the future instead. Is there any authorly confirmation of whether the vision is of the future or the past?
And finally, re: Eressa's comment about the twin's 'Numenorian heritage (Star Knight and Man of the west)'. It's a very interesting point (actually a lot of discussion here is very intersting) - but I think it can equally be taken the other way. "Elrohir' and 'Elladan' can be translated as 'Star Knight' and 'Man of the West' but equally 'elf-knight' and 'elf-wise person', 'el' being ambiguous between 'star' and 'elf' while 'adan' can be literally 'man, mortal' or more towards connotations of 'wise person'. I think Elrond was pretty clever in coming up with names that can be interpreted in Dunedain or elven tradition, leaving it up to the twins to really decide. Anyway, that's my two cents.
