Hi back! Thanks for liking this and commenting!
Very nice chapter - everyone seems to be pregnant, even Zarhil. Funny that she couldn't underrstand it!
That was my pathetical attempt at yet another Bible reference. Before I posted it, I realised it had turned out funny in the end. All the better for the story. :)
So Pharazon and Miriel are on the way, as well as Numendil's son. (I remember Tolkien wrote this son was in love with Miriel).
Actually, if I remember the whole confusing issue correctly, the one who fell in love with Míriel was a brother of the baby who is going to be born now - a brother that did not appear anymore in Tolkien´s later versions, and which I have been forced to discard from this narrative even though I had fully intended to write him at first (It´s even stated in my prologue, fickle thing that I am).
The one who is being born now is Amandil. Tolkien said loads of different things about Amandil, his son Elendil, and birth dates (grrrr!), usually involving changes of generation, but he states in more than one of his versions that Amandil was Ar-Pharazôn´s childhood friend and I decided to stick to that. So I went ahead with that date and state of things and ignored the rest of the versions.
So no, sorry, Amandil is not going to love Míriel. But his life will be complicated enough without that, and tangled with that of the other two.
