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.
Although Imrahil is rather set in his ways and has his own destiny at this point, I don’t think he would stifle Hethlin’s development unduly. In many ways, I think he would enhance it. But I’ve voiced that whole opinion before. Also, as Isabeau has pointed out, Imrahil has considerable self-possession and could handle any whispers and rumors about his and Hethlin’s relationship. (And I definitely agree with you about “Dol Amroth Yule” – there are some parts of it that I just love and hope stay in the Heth series, Elrohir’s marmalade addiction being one.) For me, Imrahil’s whole attitude about that is summed up best in “Aftermath,” when Faramir is so shocked – shocked, I say! – that his normally appearance-conscious uncle would make a fool of himself over a young girl and speak blithely about dalliances. And Imrahil responds that he’s had no less than two opportunities to look death full in the face and he’s going to live the rest of his life as he sees best, appearances be darned.
I think Heth does love Elrohir. Whether it’s mostly friendship-love or also something more on her part, I just can’t tell. Elrohir is definitely in over his head, IMHO, thus Elrond’s despair over their relationship – for who could long resist the lure of one of his beautiful children? Surely, in his eyes, Heth will succumb to Elrohir’s charms sooner or later. (Oh, wicked thought about Elrond and Elrohir’s death being best hope for the latter coming to Valinor! Poor Elrond if true...)
In short, Rebecca, I readily concede the merits and validity of your arguments even as I hold stubbornly to my own convictions! *grins*
