No Man's Child

Ch. 32: Chapter 31

This is as close to "domestic bliss" as you've allowed your story to get, so far.

A question: shouldn't Edainion have one of those Ar(a) names? If not, we need a reason why.

And Roheryn--Tolkien says he was called so because he was a gift from Arwen. The nature of Aragorn's relationship with the daughter of Elrond is still an unanswered question for this reader--so are you AU on Roheryn, or is he named that for Nienelen (AKA "lady") or is Aragorn running around with Arwen behind his wife's back? Inquiring minds want to know. 

How close to the War of the Ring are we now? I'm interested in how old the kid will be at that time....and whether Arwen is in Rivendell at this point in the story.

You need to adjust the quotemarks on the bedtime story she tells Edainion. Lose the endquote at the end of each paragraph, until the very end.

There is a reason why, but, like many of the questions raised by the story, you'll have to wait for the answer. Grin You'll notice about 3.5 arcs in this story. We've just completed one arc, and this and the last couple chapters are busy setting up the tension of unanswered issues and questions for the next arc.

That just seems so, well, odd, to me, but you're exactly right. What a bizarre little bit of grammar funkiness.

And Roheryn--Tolkien says he was called so because he was a gift from Arwen.

*sigh* Yeah, unfortunately I forgot about this until another astute reader brought it to my attention. I've been struggling with what to do about. Actually, I think I'm going to post more about it on my story forum, cuz, if you're willing, I could use some feedback/help on it.

Thanks GA!
