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.

1. Why Anorien?
2. Who in the north, if anyone, knew where he was (and possibly why)?
About time I got back to this, don't you think? A bit stalled with the story at present-maybe I'll be able to finish it this weekend.
As far as (1) goes, I'm thinking that it's close to Minas Tirith, but unpopulated enough that Halaran's obvious Northern accent, etc. will be accepted and not commented upon. I would think that if he were to settle in MT itself (unlikely, or in the surrounding area, word might get back to Denethor and he might be in for some questioning. But visiting every once in a while to buy supplies and trade furs wouldn't cause a lot of comment. He could keep a watch upon things. I suspect that his plan was that if the Enemy finally made his move, Halaran would summon an Eagle to let Aragorn know.
And if I've already spoken of this elsewhere, forgive me-I've been so long away that I only know to start replying where I left off.
I see a problem with Aragorn having much if any contact with Halaran after he left; it's the same problem I have with Litharel -- why didn't anyone come looking for Hethlin?
I think they didn't know she existed, plain and simple. If Aragorn heard anything from the Eagles, it was that the whole family had died. I come down hard on him for some of his other choices, but I'll cut him some slack on this one....
