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.

Fourth Age does raise another issue against Heth and Elrohir building a nest together. If Aragorn and Arwen’s son marries Heth’s daughter, then they would be first cousins if Elrohir was the girl’s father. Not an impossibility, especially among royalty, but probably unusual.

yes, that's true. Until I read that, I'd assumed that it was pretty much a given that Hethlin would end up with Elrohir. I'd assumed that the Imrahil thing was just a little wrinkle in the story to add some suspense, because it seemed so obvious to me that Elrohir and Hethlin were falling for each other. Shocking development!

Late Fragment made me think that perhaps Elrohir does marry Hethlin but ends up getting killed fairly early into their marriage. Which would be tragic, and uncanonical in the sense that if I recall correctly E&E are both still alive and in Middle Earth at the time of Arwen's death.

And then those thoughts got me thinking that it would be ironic if the only way Elrond's wish to have his son in Valinor could be realized would be if Elrohir got killed (without having already surrendered his immortality, of course) and was rehoused in Aman. Totally tangential to this discussion -- but I got a chuckle out of thinking of the look on Elrond's face as the thought flitted through his mind that it might not be such a bad thing if his younger son ended up getting killed. Obviously that thought would be squelched immediately!
