Hethlin of Anorien
February, 25 2006
I know CMC's a done deal, but since I intend to give it a thorough editing in the future, I'll include it in this thread, as well as make this a place for any other Heth questions not appropriate for the Silver Swan thread.
I don't know how far you have already come in your edit of CMC, but I thought I'd mention some things I still remember from my last reading of the story. Perhaps you have already noted and incorporated them somewhere, but anyway, here goes:
- In "Cage no Bird" her father muses about her eyes: "...in the unlikely event she should ever be blooded, then they too would come to resemble his, with threads of gold running through the grey." - This is never mentioned in CMC, and neither in your other stories.
Actually, it is, in Musings. Imrahil has certainly noticed. And part of the reason it isn't mentioned is that it doesn't happen until they're on the way back from Lorien in CMC. It's something that will probably become apparent to Heth eventually-it doesn't happen until the blooding ceremony and the effect increases over time, the longer you interact with the Eagles.
- The levels of Minas Tirith are numbered from the bottom to the top.
That one I have noticed and intend to remedy.
- …owyn's eyes are grey, not blue.
Hmmmm. I'll change it if Altariel does. If not, then I guess you can say that's another way Heth-verse differs from canon. I will say that I have blue eyes, and if I wear something grey, they look grey.
- The question of how Hethlin came by her father's sword. I admit I don't exactly remember what the problem was and if/how you solved that already.
The problem was that she mentioned not knowing whether her family were properly laid to rest or not, and whether the Rangers had even found the right farmstead, when Mablung had brought her father's sword back to her. It's on the list of things to fix.
