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.
Rebecca - I was reading your well turned out post (152) and all the other postings that followed it. I have to say that your arguments have brought a wave of hope to rise in my heart! Yes its true that Fourth Age does bring in questions if Elrohir and Hethlins daughter marries her first cousin Eldarion...but if I remember in CMC people wanted Aragorn to marry Hethlin's mother who was a close kinswoman...and also the North Dunedain were so few that alot of people probably had to marry their cousins...so maybe there is some hope....that Elrohir marries Hethlin...I take back my 'hat' and once again try and support the Elrohir camp. I always thought though in the back of my head that Elrohir and Elladan stay in middle earth...for they seem to be Elvenkind yet closely similar to men..for in the riding of the Grey Company Tolkien never once revers to the twins as 'elves' but as seperate from Legolas and as 'Sons of Elrond'...and they've been riding with the Dunedain for centuries...yes different from Men but they have ridden for the Dunedain for centuries...and feel like they are part of them. Elrohir is an elf yes...but he is more Dunedain I feel, a Ranger at heart very similar to Hethlin, wild and free yet tempered by Arda and all her nature. I feel that Tolkien left is unsaid their fate for us to decide....but he says that Celeborn sails accross the sea...as of Sam *okay thats legend*, Legolas and Gimil. But in regards to Elrohir he is silent...and one were fanfiction can fit in!
But maybe another tolkien legend can give us some hope the fate of "A Silvan Elf who, at least according to legend, accompanied Nimrodel on her journey to the southern havens. Mithrellas, it is said, became lost in the woods of Belfalas, where she was found by Imraz˘r the N˙menˇrean. So Elvish blood entered the line of the Princes of Dol Amroth, it was claimed, since her son Galador was the first of the long line of Princes" (Encylopedia of Arda). According to legend Mithrellas was able to sail to Valinor..afterwards...but ofcourse Elrohir is not a full blooded elf so will have a choice. But maybe Elrohir and Hethlin go on and found their own settlent somewhere in Rhovanion (or Greenwood)..etc etc. My hope is renewed!
