Title: Tar-Meneldur

I liked this bio a lot.

It's such an interesting dynamic between those two, father and son!



Author's Response:

Thanks so much, Himring! So happy you liked it!

I find the entire dynamic fascinating and love how Tolkien pursues the politics and layers in the history and development of Numenor with his descriptions of these interactions. I do wish finished that story. It promised to be one of his very best episodes in his wordbuilding.

Title: Tar-Meneldur

And yet another fascinating (and well-researched) bio about a character familiar to me, but whom you make fresh.  I appreciate your examination of Irimion's character:  scholarly, dutiful, modest.



Author's Response:

Thanks! I'm laughing at myself "scholarly, dutiful, modest." And yet I still really liked the guy. I usually am more attracted to the quick-study, irresponsible, and arrogant sorts! I really liked him though. I guess there was that sense of slightly out of sync that made him sympathetic to me.

Thanks so much for reading.

Title: Tar-Meneldur

There certainly is much rich detail in this biography about Tar-Meneldur and his son Tar-Aldarion.  While Aldarion certainly seems the more exciting individual, with a curiously fascinating love life, there is a lot of information in Meneldur's story, which could be seen as unusual for Tolkien.  It is a very interesting bio and very well done.  Thank you for the peek into the lives of these two Numenorean kings.



Author's Response:

Thanks so much for reading, Jenni. I am like you, I prefer bad boys or at least more active ones. But the details about his struggles and his willingness to admit when he had been wrong gave him extra points from me. He was sort born in the wrong time period, maybe the wrong place. I can relate to that. Anyway, glad you found it interesting despite your reluctance!

Thanks!!!!
