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.
Nargil wrote: Little chillie peppers are EVIL, my cousin talked me into trying one once and it nearly blew my brains out.
They truly are. My father gave me a seed once when I was seven and it tore me up. We lived in San Diego at the time, and he would go over the border to Mexico to get the really, really hot ones because he loved them and what we had on our side wasn't hot enough for him. I, on the other hand, am a total wimp about spicy food.
As for the Minas Tirith numbers I always thought it depended on where you live, those who live in the citadle count that as level 1 (so this would be Imrahil as well) but those who live in the first circle count that as one, in the middle people it probably depends on wether they see themselves as uper or lower class.
Oh, I like this, Nargil! A perfect explanation for my inconsistencies!
Yet another question, Why did Elphir not write to Imrahil about Brand, he wouldn't have known about him looking like Boromir but even so by the time Andra is bringing him to Swan knight meetings he must be quite well in?
Elphir might very well have mentioned to his father that Andrahar had picked this stable-boy up on the way home from Pelargir. But Elphir doesn't know about the wave dream or any of the evidence that Andra has, because Andra is keeping that to himself at present. So it's not quite the matter of urgency to Imrahil that reading "Andra found a boy he thinks is Cousin Boromir's illegitimate son!" would be. Andra has taken an interest in the odd waif or stray before.
