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 has so much honor and self-sacrifice in him that it just hurts to see it sometimes.
That is a story I will probably write at some point, though what exactly will precipitate his decision is unclear to me at the moment.
While reading the council scene, I kept thinking of your characterization of Duinhir in CMC, and decided that Daerlath must take after his mother's side of the family... Made me wish his father was still around to whack him with a cane or something.
That was the desired reaction. Great men don't always have great sons. And Daerlath may have a chip on his shoulder thanks to dear old dad. He may have been living with Daddy's disappointment that he wasn't his brothers for most of his adolescence and early adulthood.
Elphir will in the long run, suffer a bit from being a pale imitation of a very extraordinary man. Though he's never a whiny jerk like Daerlath, even on his worse day.
