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.
Concerning Fourth Age (and also the recent discussion about Heth and her future children). I find it a bit odd that "Tell" wouldn't know his own grandmother. Granted, it seems as if she is ranging over quite a bit of ground all over M-e, but he doesn't even recognize the device on her tunic, and has no reaction at all when she is adressed by name. Somehow I don't judge her to be a neglectful mother/grandmother, in CMC she seems so happy at the prospect of being healed to have children, she even talks with Elrond (of all people) about it.
Rebecca writes:But for obvious reasons she could not put off having children if she marries Imrahil, and I think she should put off having children for a while.
Good point. I mean, I would think that Imrahil would be "able" to have children even late in life (thinking about Anthony Quinn, for example). And obviously, he wouldn't know that he will die in 30 years (is that right? I can't remember exactly...). But would he want to wait to be a father when he over 70, 80 years old?
Incidentally, I think my favourite shorter story of yours is still "Motherless". IIRC, it was the first I read from you, even before I encountered CMC, and it still moves me deeply. Imrahil as father is simply fantastic, and this his qualities are a further plus in his favour, right *g*?
