Brotherly Advice

Challenge Details

Middle-earth has quite a few siblings in it: Elros and Elrond, Elladan and Elrohir, Boromir and Faramir, Fëanor's seven sons, Thorin and Dís, Théoden and Théodwyn (and any of the other kids in that family), and the list goes on.

Older brothers almost always have advice they want to give, so your task is to write out what sort of advice an older brother might give to a younger sibling, as well as how that advice might be given. Suggestions:

Boromir's advice to Faramir on being a captain in the army
Maedhros's advice to Maglor on how to deal with their father
Théoden's advice to Théodwyn on being married

And anything else you can think of between whichever older brother and younger sibling you can imagine.

Aman is a big world when you're just a child, and out in the wild, there's no knowing what things are good and what aren't. That's why it's handy to have an older brother to tell you!
