Isabeau's Journal

 November, 12 2005

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 trying to decide if he will or not. He's not always at ease with Faramir-bit of a guilt thing happening there, because he thinks Faramir might blame him for Boromir's death.

A nuzgul is a LOTR plot-bunny. It's a term you'll see used on HA a lot. They are generally depicted as fanged bunnies in Ringwraith robes. Pernicious and persistent.

That was very helpful, the part about him being a misogynist. I was beginning to wonder if it was mostly intense jealousy. ("She's a warrior type, I'm a warrior type - what gives, Imrahil?")

E.W. is of the opinion that he would not object to Imrahil fixating upon a "proper" womanly woman, because he still has his manly bonding moments with Imrahil upon the field of war. But Hethlin is a woman who even intrudes upon that; ergo, his disapproval.

Also, another thought on Imrahil and Hethlin. Even as I think they could have (and hope they do have) a great and satisfying and even legendary love, any relationship of theirs would be in large part a springboard to "the rest of Heth's life." Imrahil dies in F.A. 34 (about 35 years from this point in the story) when Heth is a mere 57ish - or in her late 30's for us non-Dunadans. In fact, in my more mercenary moments I think: Imrahil dies in FA 34, Eowyn dies in FA 65 (ala Late Fragment) but Faramir hangs around until FA 83, and Elrohir has said he wants to stay in M.E. until Arwen dies (>FA 120). Hmmm....

Nice to see you're so good at math....;-)
