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.

Hi Radbooks -

Wonderful chapter, Dwim.

Thank you! I usually post just after midnight, CDT, right before I go to bed. I just didn't think of it last week, and then was confused about what day it was on some level.

I was glad to see that Pel, Elya, and Andra finally talked, if not about the beating directly, then at least about why and who might want them out - almost everyone it sounds like! Though I know that is not true, there are always a large silent group of people who don't want to rock the boat either way and so say nothing.

That is certainly the case. It's just that in the face of general antipathy, it isn't possible to rule anyone in particular out.

Not wanting to rock the boat in this case looks much the same as potentially having already rocked it; also, that segment of the population presents problems of another sort, alas. But in any case, at the moment, they're a sort of background noise that makes it impossible to pick out with confidence who might have told Harthil about the confrontation.

I was glad that Elya finally apologized to Andra and that he didn't do it on the beach, but that he did it in front of the officers was quiet courageous on his part. Perhaps he will be able to recover from all of this

Poor Elethil is still reeling, I fear.

I was wondering when Adrahil or someone would discuss their part in what was going on - well, not so much Adrahil's part as Ornedil's and the other officers.

This is definitely the time for that self-reflection to bear some fruit. And I think Adrahil, too, would think of his own involvement or disinvolvement, and consider how he fits into the picture. It's just that that isn't seen directly. Certainly, he, too, has gone through a period of not wanting Andrahar about (Kin-Strife, chapter 3), but he has long since admitted that's a mistake. Nevertheless, he is the prince, and so in a way, the ultimate captain, so I think he would ponder his own responsibility and what actions can be taken to redeem Dol Amroth.

I'm looking forward to the next chapter.

Thanks, Radbooks!

By the way, the formatting is bad again!

Hm. Well, I've re-uploaded. I'm not sure what causes it, so just let me know when/if it happens and I'll try to correct it within a reasonable amount of time.
