Comments For Character of the Month Biographies
Love this bio! I suppose Huor is treated as a textual tool by most--just like how so many ladies in Tolkien's legendarium are defined as the mothers or wives or sisters of males characters, he is "just" Tuor's dad.
But then again, there aren't many stories about Tuor and Earendil, either, or even Hurin--which is too bad, because I love all of these characters. *g* (I have a definite fondness for the House of Hador. Their last stand is right up there with Tolkien's greatest battle moments.)
(Random thought I had while reading your bio--I wonder if Huor & Hurin spending time with Turgon also reinforced their loyalty to Fingon?)
I did notice the parallels between Arathorn's death and Huor's, but didn't realise other parts of their lives overlapped so much. Certainly seems fitting.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to read the bio and for your lovely review. I'm always thrilled to see that people like what I've written, especially that I'm new to writing character bios here :) Yes, Huor seems this valiant hero whom not only fanfic authors neglect, but so did the Professor. I mean, come on, such a strong, solid personality and only one role in life? To be Tuor's father...? And yes, I think the time spent in Gondolin must have influenced the brothers to become Fingon's such loyal allies. Thank you!
A good bio!
The parallel with Arathorn is interesting and had not occurred to me.
(Your quotation about Rian inspired me to post a B2MeM prompt about her.)
Author's Response: Thank you for reading :D I'm very happy to see that my bio inspired your prompt!
See I am not the only one who has issues with how Children of Húrin leaves out great parts for the sake of the narrative! I always loved - well it probably sounds so wrong - that last valiant stand of the two brothers side by side during the Nirnaeth. Especially given the betrayal of Uldor's kind, those two and their men really showed how committed the Edain were to the cause. And what a star was born from Huor's line :)
What a great Bio Binks!
Author's Response: I'm very glad that we agree on this particular topic :) Thank you so much for reading and your comment!
