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.

Sorry, Imhiriel, I seem to have skipped this one.

I love Imrahil's absolute faith about his fate after death, and that Arwen doubts a little - foreshadows one of her low points in the Tale of A & A.

Good! That was the exact intention.

I had to grin how neatly you circumvented any further elaboration on "your" family and "our" family. But I did wonder when Imrahil only mentioned one grandson. I assume he was speaking about Alphros, but what about Elfwine?

Wince. Because I forgot about Elfwine. Maybe I'll tweak that a bit. It appears to be my month to forget about grand-dads and grandkids alike...

What's this about the mention of Dale in the context of fighting? Is this one of Heth's future adventures? Perhaps even one of Faramir's or her visions?

You have Altariel to thank for that. It's the war Faramir doesn't go off to in Game of Chess. And Hethlin does.

Do you plan to publish "In All But Blood" as a separate story here on TFF some time?

Thinking about it. I plan to expand that into an actual story at some point in the distant future. But I can't do that without spoilers, so I probably should post the short version since other stories are referring to the incident now.

One mistake I noticed: "we could have stayed home by our hearths with no one thinking the worst of us." It should say "worse", I think.

Fixed. Thanks!
