[Just for the record : I'm still not comfortable with that [] but I can't detail it as I would in French. My feeling is that Finwë is wrong and puts (first) all the guilt on Míriel, though he still loves her. Remember his final sacrifice, and this in particular :
quote:
'Thou art unjust to me in thy thought,' said Finwë. 'It is unlawful to have two wives, but one may love two women, each differently, and without diminishing one love by another. Love of Indis did not drive out love of Míriel; so now pity for Míriel doth not lessen my heart's care for Indis.

Laws and Customs.

But, hey, that's detail [] ]

Whenever we are ready to start, Fëanor is calling for his daddy.

I see - not just the term, but the whole concept, somehow. We may perhaps understand better what you mean by the concept when we read some more of Finwë's "strange thoughts".

I suppose that when you have posted Finwë's thoughts on something that you think he is wrong about, you can explain why, here in the Aside thread.

Lol ! the point is that they are (or that I see them as being) completely different characters, and I need to "sink" into Finwë []

Oh, certainly they are.

I'm just as impatient as Fëanor. []

But I'll be patient, just for you. []

As long as we don't have to be quite as patient as last time []

I think I'll post as Indis when the doom has been announced. That is when the Vanyar will be reminded of it and start discussing it again.

I suppose I could try to start writing my post so that I've got it ready when it's time to post it ... []

Ama, are you around, or about to go to bed? Are you on MSN, btw?

I am on MSN - lady_alleyne@hotmail.co.uk - Probably the best way to get me right now. I'm going to bed pretty soon.

And sorry I missed your post! My internet connection has been very unreliable tonight. I keep losing it and getting error messages. I'll try again tomorrow evening ... I've added you to my MSN buddy list now, so we'll see.

Double-posting:
Could even Indis's post be the one where we tell that Mandos has confirmed the doom? She might be told by her brother.
(No, I'm not ready to post it immediately [] )
Btw, how old is Indis? I'm not asking about years, but is she about as old as her brother, so that she was already around when he went to Valinor and came back to lead his people there?
And what about Miriel?

I read The Shibboleth of Fëanor this morning. Where the account differs from Laws and Customs, we're not always consistent about which version we follow.
But in an RP I think it's fine to just choose the one we prefer, the version that suits us best. []

I'm afraid we have no answer to your question on Indis and Míriel ...

Sorry for the double-posting, but do we have a Nolofinwë? He becomes quite important later on...

The footnote which made me hate Nolofinwë:

quote:
As he said with some justice: 'My brother's claim rests only upon a decree of the Valar; but of what force is that for those who have rejected them and seek to escape from their prison-land?' But Fingolfin answered: 'I have not rejected the Valar, nor their authority in all matters where it is just for them to use it. But if the Eldar were given free choice to leave Middle-Earth and go to Aman, and accepted it because of the loveliness and bliss of that land, their free choice to leave it and return to Middle-Earth, when it has become dark and desecrated, cannot be taken away. Moreover I have an errand in Middle-Earth, the avenging of the blood of my father upon Morgoth, whom the Valar let loose among us. Fëanor seeks first his stolen treasures.'
[]

All I have to say, Fingolfin, is read my first siggy quote. []

We don't really - Eluchil wrote his lines when Findarato talked to him in Memory, but he didn't really play him.

Perhaps he would like to play him in here - if he finds it hard to like Fëanaro when posting as Finwë, he can then do a Nolofinwë post to balance it out []

That's a good idea!

There's certainly no love lost between half-brothers. []

My opinion is that Nolofinwë still loves Fëanáro somehow (with a rivalry, of course), till the Helcaraxë. Otherwise, he would never have sworn to follow him ...

I'm not sure what would be the most difficult one for me, Finwë or Nolofinwë. But I already have in mind a canvas for Finwë []

And Nolofinwë isn't born yet, so no big hurry []

I'd rather someone not play ~all of them.

You're welcome to play one (or two, in the case of the twins).

Perhaps, but I think it's only one-way. Fëanáro hates his guts. []
