The Silver Swan

 February, 23 2006

The place for discussion about Hethlin's new adventures.

I refer you to this passage in CMC:

Has anyone ever offered to play stallion to your mare, or the other way around? I asked curiously, emboldened by the frank discussion. The Prince raised an eyebrow, and gave me a very bland smile.

I was a comely enough lad, when I was young, was all he said, and with a last pat of his horses neck, started towards his tent.

So I suspect Hethlin spent the odd moment wondering even before esquire speculations reached her ears. I do think Imrahil's kiss at the wedding did quite a bit to reassure her, if such reassurance was necessary. She's still a bit naive about such things, so she would probably assume, given his four children and successful marriage, that he was a man for women and that was that. The possibility that Imrahil could be a bisexual would never occur to her.

It is an interesting question, though. I've not decided yet if Hethlin ever attributes Andra's dislike of her to sexual jealousy. She probably believes it's more due to him simply not believing a woman has any business being a warrior.
