Princes of Dol Amroth

 February, 25 2006

Questions about the life and times of Imrahil and his family can be asked here, including questions about Ultimatums, Kin-Strife and the shorter stories. Discussions about Brand can go either here or in the Best-Loved Son thread, since his stories sort of overlap both cycles.

He is thinking about the legend where those of Numenorean blood can voluntarily give up their lives-will themselves to die. Like Aragorn does eventually.

That's the part I did understand. What I wondered about was: If he had not been Númenórean, would he not have contemplated "death before dishonour"? That is, does he make a moral distinction in this case between suicide and "laying down his life"? I don't know if this goes way beyond what you wanted to say in this scene, but that's what I was asking myself when I read it.

No, and NO! *g*

*an evil chuckle echoes over the pond from the direction of S-W-Germany*

She's pretty much finished her training at this point and is getting ready to test out-ergo Imrahil's comments.

And his not-so-subtle mention of the test also reminds her that she can no longer use her training as an excuse to come to a decision regarding her relationship to him. He has been remarkably patient thus far, but the "close season" is nearing its end.
Poor Hethlin - confronted with pirate-"Almost Nekkid"-Imrahil early in the morning...
Although, I wouldn't mind being in her place *eg*.
