A journal for discussion of the story "Reconciliation."


Just what the hook says. I will try actually to reply to any comments in this journal.

Good heavens, Dwim! Another tight and troubling chapter. What you are putting these poor people through... Elethil seems to be on the verge of a nervous breakdown, you give Peloren one of the most embarrassing injuries available, and I shudder to think of how the new rumors are going to twist things.

The other esquires are, of course, not appeased at all by the moratorium on pranks, and Elethil seems to be taking the brunt of it. Do the others think that Elethil and Peloren took their troubles to the officers? After the officers' obviously punishing first term, it seems to me that this sudden "about-face" could be open to many interpretations by the peons.

What is going through Imrahil's mind? Is he trying to help Pel and Elya due to guilt, after hearing the rumors? How much contact do he and Andra have, with their very different schedules, and what does Andra think of Imrahil's efforts with P&E? And my goodness - Imrahil taking language lessons at the Fairweather. It is so appropriate, and I laughed myself silly.

And WHAT is up with Harthil's questioning??? Grrr...

I'm pretty fuzzy on the pages. Who usually becomes a page, and about how old are they? Do pages generally go on to become esquires? What are their duties? It would seem that it would give a youngster quite a headstart to be a page first, although I only noticed them getting horsemanship training. I don't know that you have so many details worked out, of course, just that Middle Ages and Middle-earth don't always match, and I wasn't sure where the differences might be here.
