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, i guess I should explain a bit more, I don't know how much Brand has seen of hethlin but at this moment her dress would have been very feminine, dress, pretty circlet, certainley the impression would have been of a woman rather than a man and Brand didn't grow up around ladies in glamorous court gowns, I suspect everyone in the room was at least to him pretty in all thier fineary.
Also he knows about Imrahil likeing Hethlin, and at that point he is a bit scared of Imrahil, maybe he's saying what he thinks the Prince wishes too here. Or he's inherited that lack of saying the right thing at the right time his family members seem to exhibit from time to time.
What Brand and other people at the time consider beautiful might be slightly different to what we see as beautiful now, take Imrahils thoughts of Nimrien's ankels for example and he was well used to the more aluring dress of his lady friends. I don't think Brand will even start looking at curves and breasts as attractive just yet.
What would be really interesting would be too see a mans view on all of this.
