His Mother's Son

An unusual subject and an interesting take on it! I hadn't spotted the potential for quite so much darkness in that passage before you brought it out.

(Sorry for duplication, this was meant to be a public comment on the story, not a private email, but I pasted it into the wrong place at first.)

Once I finish my tale "The Rains of Castamir", would people be offended if I spread any more of the tales I have heard of the Gondorian Kin-strife?

Hi Aruthir,

The Valacar bio is done, and I posted a preliminary Kings of Gondor entry. You can see a family tree of all the kings on the KoG entry, which includes birth names and dates.

And, to answer your question, Vinyarion is the birth name of Hyarmendacil II, like Vinitharya is the birth name of Eldacar, and Minalcar is the birth name of Rómendacil II. Eldacar's birth name (Vinitharya) is from the language of the Northmen, like his mother Vidumavi, but after the ugliness of the Kin-strife, I'm really pretty sure Hyarmendacil's birth name had to be a plain-vanilla Gondorian name. Grin

And I think the Kin-strife would be a fascinating era to write fanfic for!  Wave

On to Minardil....

Last Fruit, The
How the Noldor who remained behind in Valinor were left to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives after the Host left, particularly Finarfin and Earwen.
A brilliant 'changing of the guard' moment in Doriath.
Portrait Of A Queen
Tar-Telperien, the second Ruling Queen of Númenor, refused to marry despite all attempts to convince her otherwise. Here's a reason why.
Wisdom of Isildur, The
An excellent look as to why there were no further Elven High Kings after into Mordor fell Gil-Galad's star.
Cursed Queen of Angmar, The
A thoroughly amazing epic showing the behind the scenes life of Angmar during the Third Age. An excellent use of an OFC too.
Rangers of the North
An outstanding look at the tangled web of the Third Age's politics - why Gondor rejected Isildur's heirs for a millennium, the loyalties of the Stewards, the fate of the Isildurioni in the North, Elrond's views, etc. Morwen Tindomerel's legendarium is perhaps my favorite AU of all. Brilliant.
Midwinter Forfeit
The politics of Gondor are dicey ones, and this is a great interpretation of what are Thorongil's final days in that country before other tasks call him.
When the King Comes Back (the Great Smials)
Just what effect did the Hobbits' disappearance from the Shire have? A rather big one, it turns out, on more than one level. This is but one in a series of Dreamflower's stories. If you like this one, I recommend going over to Stories of Arda, where the rest are archived.
Long Road Home, The
Boromir survives the disaster at Amon Hen and goes on the run, doing good deeds wherever he may and leaving only Faramir to know the truth. But secrets will out eventually, and the consequences will have to be addressed.
Eloquent Remembrance
The meeting of two Elves, both giants in their own right, to discuss the politics that lie between them.
