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'm a sucker for androgynous bard types.
Ohhh you don't mean... Maglor do you? My favorite of the First Age elves!
My problem with Elrohir in DAY is that I don't think he can physically get to Rivendell and back in time, or if he can, that he probably wouldn't until his father has passed over the Sea. I do really love the marmalde scene though, so I'll keep it if I can. I might just have to change the time frame, shift his visit to the following summer or something.
I've always wondered about that too -- he would have had to go up to Rivendell, drop off his bags, turn around and come back down again. I wondered if maybe he didn't go to Rivendell after Edoras but hung out some more in Lorien before heading back down to MT and then DA for Yule.
And I agree about it being more likely that Elrohir would not be doing a whole lot of traveling while Elrond was still in Rivendell. He loves Elrond so much (and vice versa) and wouldn't fritter away the bit of time his father will still be in Middle Earth on things like gathering marmalade. Especially if he doesn't want to go to Valinor. They need to reconcile with each other and come to an understanding, that would be more important to Elrohir than marmalade, or even Hethlin at this point, I'd imagine. Seems more likely that the 3 E's would retreat to Rivendell to come to terms to the very changed world and loss of Arwen. That would probably take a season or two, don't you think? But I love the marmalade! I love the opal necklace! I wouldn't want to lose that! Moving it to the following summer would work.
