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.

Rebecca! That idea never occurred to me. Now you got it stuck in my mind, darn it.
I agree with you - I love Nimrien's character. I love Imrahil's too, even in his rakish youth, but it is marvelous to see her confound him over and over again. “I have read The Garden of Love cover to cover, Imri." LOL! I have to wonder when he's going to catch on and stop being so astonished by her revelations. Been spending the last 15 years around too many courtesans and regular court ladies, Imri has.
It's easy to see how Imrahil and Nimrien grew so close, and why he considered theirs to be a legendary love. After baring the fact that he and Andra had been lovers and still getting her acceptance, they must have kept no secrets from each other. And I can definitely see Andra and Nimrien continuing to gang up on Imrahil like they sort of did tonight. Hah! And how wonderful that she can accept Andra and be friends, even to being considerate of his feelings for Imrahil. She is so classy...
Is Ultimatums going to continue on through Finduilas' stay in Dol Amroth and Imrahil & Nimrien's wedding? I'm very curious as to whether Nimrien, perceptive as she is, ever notices anything worrisome in Finduilas' behavior (per Nimrien's conversation with Imrahil about it when on the road to Pelargir). I mean, Finduilas is dead in less than two years.
