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.
Hmmm, I can't believe I'm trying to offer hope to the Elrohir/Hethlin camp, but I feel compelled to comment on a couple of things...
Rebecca, you noted that: If Hethlin's love has died before Aragorn and Arwen are gone, he can't have been Elrohir.
Why don't you think so? If Elrohir chose mortality to be Heth's partner and have children with her (or even if he didn't), then it's entirely possible that he dies in battle years before Hethlin visits Faramir. A tragedy of its own, but possible. Or, you know, there's nothing that says if Elrohir takes over the story again (like he did in Lorien) that Altariel might not have to revise that particular birthday present...
eressa, I admit I really dislike thinking that the section you quoted would be about Faramir - since Heth can't have him now, then I hopehopehope that she gets over the guy and they manage to remain good friends. It's true that you generally never forget your first love, and I imagine that he will always be special to Heth. I would hate to think that she would pine away for Faramir even through a marriage to someone else, however. I'd actually rather that the quote be about Elrohir's untimely death - at least she would hopefully see him again after her own passing.
Rebecca, your arguments *are* persuasive, but after much mulling and consideration I still believe that Imrahil is the best thing that could possibly happen to Heth. Nonetheless, I tend to think of the Elrohir/Imrahil debate in simple legal terms: The evidence on Imrahil's behalf is very strong, but still circumstantial. So far, anyway!
