Isabeau's Journal

 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.

Gosh guys, you don't want much, do you?

As much "Isabeau & Friends"-verse as we can get? Nah, not much... I only check Tolkienfanfiction every single day, hoping for something -- anything! -- more about your Imrahil, Andrahar, Nimrien, Hethlin, Brand, Faramir, etc.... No pressure, or anything like that.....

I can guarantee Imri doesn't die of brain cancer.

Well, that's a relief! I think.... *ponders other horrible ways to die*

Your Imri is A Good Man, and doesn't deserve to suffer any more than necessary! He deserves to die peacefully with his family about him, just as Andrahar, Another Good Man, deserved to die in battle, just as he would have preferred.

I am so tempted to go ahead and write this story and put it up despite the fact that it would finally answer once and for the choices Heth made.

And that's a problem, how??? *lifts eyebrow*

Hey, your readers could use some rain after a long drought, too! *nudge, nudge*

It is totally burning a hole in my brain, but I have to wonder if it would kill my muse or take some of the heat off.

Um, don't know about you -- but when *my* muse demands that I write something, he doesn't stop tormenting me if it doesn't happen to be convenient. And if I don't cooperate fully, he walks off in a snit... sometimes for a year at a time.

Moral of the story: Always Obey Thy Muse!

If you all knew the ending, would you be interested in sticking around for the rest of it, and all that...

*stares in open-mouthed astonishment* You're joking, right???

Does the fact that we know that Nimrien dies make us any less hungry for more "Ultimatums"? Does that fact that we know that Andrahar dies before Imrahil make us enjoy "The Recall" less? Does the fact that we know that Imrahil dies before Hethlin keep us from cheering Heth on in "Fourth Age", and laughing ourselves silly at the ending? Does the fact that we know Boromir dies make us not want to figure out how they weather the trouble brewing at the end of "Blackbow"?

Your characters are real and three-dimensional enough to make us truly care for them. That means that they will die sometime, too, just as we all do.

On the plus side, there's some stuff floating around that could be posted once I settled the issue once and for all.

Your fans are loyal, persistent, and insatiable. Every hint, every chapter, every standalone vignette, every story sends us into raptures of delight, and endless debate about all the delicious details.

Oh, and did I mention determined?

We wantssss sssstoriesss, precioussssss! Oh, yesss we doesssssss! We needsssssss them!
