The Best-Loved Son cycle
February, 23 2006
Anything dealing with this cycle of stories can be discussed here: Andra and Boromir as a couple, the Denethor/Imrahil/Andrahar rivalry, the politics of Gondor in the last days of the Third Age.
Yes, in fact, one of the first things Aragorn does is overhaul Gondor's laws and that is one of the ones that he abolishes.
I wonder how the Gondorians will react to that. And I also wonder how he will do it. Either as just one law among many, more-or-less unobtrusively, or if he will draw particular attention to it. He can also point to the Elves (who are now again so much nearer to Men) as an example of a society where homosexuality is accepted.
As to how Andrahar thinks about it, he thinks it's definitely a good idea, though I don't think the abolition is enough in and of itself to win him over to Aragorn's camp...;-)
I hope he doesn't think Aragorn did it to get back into his good graces *g*. I'm looking forward to seeing it. I would send you my muses to help you with the difficult spot, but I'm afraid I need them myself just yet *g*.
