Story meme

Future histories


Here is a meme that did the rounds on LJ recently; not only was it fun, it was a source of ideas:

Ask me what happens after the end of one of my stories.

How did Denethor warp so much, I wonder? Was it all the palantir? But even in his youth there was all that conflict with Thorongil... What a cold and complex man.

Definitely. I wonder if a troubled relationship with his father didn't help - and I tend to imagine this as predating Thorongil's arrival. My instincts tell me that Ecthelion was very much like Boromir, and couldn't quite understand his (as you say) cold and complex son.

I wonder if Denethor believes from a very early age that he's fighting a doomed cause, and knows that the crunch will come during his own Stewardship. That wouldn't do much for his state of mind.

Did the Worshipful Order of Scriveners attempt to unionize or anything?

LOL, I was wondering the same thing! Alas for the Worshipful Order of Scriveners, I think their days are numbered. Although I'm sure that those who don't fall foul of market forces are able to sell their products as high-end consumer goods. I'm sure Gondor's growing middle class believe it's much posher to have their dinner invitations hand-written than mass-produced ;-D
