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.

But then I recalled that CMC and SS are being told as retrospectives on Heth's part from around the Fourth Age timeframe, and by then she probably would know Haradric. Wouldn't this apply to her knowing to call an orange "orange-colored" in the retrospective, also?

Oh, that's a very good point! I hadn't thought of it that way. Once you have that color word at your disposal, it's hard to not use it, especially if you know it's known to your audience. Although if Hethlin, retrospectively, were trying to convey to her great-grandson (isn't he the supposed audience of CMC & Silver Swan?) how strange the fruit was the first time she saw it, she might deliberately adopt her original perspective on it. But good point, Denise.
