Comments For Character of the Month Biographies
I am just popping in to say that this bio is very useful for a fic I'm currently writing, so thank you!
Thanks! That is terribly exciting that you are working on an Erendis story. I am always surprised that there are not more of them.
It's much fuller than Tolkien's normal takes on relationships, isn't it? I liked seeing the sequence of events and the way you tied the history and settings in, giving it more depth. It's a very sad relationship really, so much in its favour but both of them too unbending and that poor child caught in the middle... And then she dies 'by water' --- I wonder if that was deliberate or an accident?
Very interesting read, Oshun. And useful :) Thank you.
Author's Response: It really is different. Written much later in life. It sounds realistic. I am writing Aldarion for next month. I had to continue with the other side of the story.
All I can say is that I absolutely love everything about this article you wrote on Erendis.
Author's Response: Thanks so much for reading it and letting me know!
Fantastic, Oshun! Your bios are always stellar, but Erendis is a particularly compelling character, as is the whole story of Aldarion and Erendis. IMO, it's one of Tolkien's stories that is strongly character-driven, and rather than the view from 30,000 feet we see in The Silmarillion, Erendis and her relationship with her husband lets us see a very human side of the Númenóreans. Your bio does an excellent job of highlighting this.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I cannot tell you how much your opinion means to me in this case in particular. I really enjoyed working on it over the past few days. I wish I had given myself a little more time to polish. Hey! My life is what it is! Thank you do much. I owe you an other friends to drawing me into trying to figure out what was so great about the Numenoreans. Now I am fascinating. Working on fanfic now and thinking about the economy and politics of Numenor. Also a bit about that love story.
