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.

Hi Isabeau,

I'm finally back at home and got to read Confirmation! It's always great to read new chapters of your stories, such a treat!

I see this discussion has already touched on Erchirion's rather surprising loyalty to the woman who attempted to kill him and his family, and who'd kind of made a fool of him by being escorted on his arm to do her evil deed. That must be some crush he has, to outweigh the double whammy the pirate wench offered his to life and his pride. Hmm...

I was a little surprised that Brand described Hethlin as "pretty" -- maybe he doesn't have a very broad vocabulary yet, so that was the only word he could find to indicate her attractiveness? Because I always had the impression that Hethlin's beauty isn't the conventional feminine variety that is usually conveyed by "pretty." I could totally see a young boy like Brand being *very impressed* with a woman like Hethlin, but I was kind of surprised that he'd think she was "pretty." But of course, it's a good way to bond with Imrahil!

As ever, thanks for sharing your stories with us!
