Awww. This is so sweet, and so true to your Imrahil -- kind and noble and self-aware and self-sacrificing. I would usually add "perceptive" to that description, but apparently he is not so perceptive that he didn't miss Heth's reaction to him after the dance!
This posits a lot of interesting ideas -- his vision of her in a wedding dress, even married to one of his sons! Eep! Though that seems less likely to me now that she knows his feelings. I also really appreciate how he refers to Elrohir without judgment and jealousy. These two characters seemed to have developed a mutual respect despite some rough moments.
All in all, a very nice addition to the Heth-verse; thank you for posting it.

Musing was a terrific story and I for one am glad you finally put it up. This may be an obvious question but as i am unsure, i thought it best to ask you. Is the woman that Imrahil speaks of a fictional character or have i missed her? Either way, your story is fantastic and i just wanted to tell you so.

Nice story, Isabeau! It's been a long time since I read CMC, but your Imrahil sounds like such an honorable, intelligent, and downright sexy man! Great job!

This is lovely, Isabeau. I'm so pleased you posted it! My favourite bit is when Imrahil almost berates Hethlin in his thoughts for not knowing how beautiful (inside and out) she is.
Imrahil's honesty is also very touching, and I can see him very quietly and carefully trying to win Hethlin's heart over time.
The thing that truly amuses me is that Heth had no idea! Imrahil is a perfect gentleman, and you just have to love him heaps.
Frankly, I think it would do both Imrahil and Hethlin the world of good to sleep together. Then again, with Heth under his care in her swan knights training that could cause difficulties with Imrahil feeling he'd failed his duty of care to her.
Really, really enjoyed this little fic.

Thanks Isabeau! I remember your vision of Imrahil as one of my favorite aspects of CMC. What a gorgeous man, an elegant gentleman.
