Ok...so just jumped us forward to Mettarë. Hope what I wrote about Amarwen and Almara fits.

Introduced the beginning of the plot line that will eventually lead to Farien's arrest and Amarwen's return to Edhellond.

Rightio - More plot development. Things have escalated between Aldamir & Amarwen but this is gonna kick off a range of repercussions...It won't be smooth sailing for the betrothed pair, or the realm as things continue to slide over 2 years towards Valacar's death and Eldacar's rise to the throne.

Politics, machinations, rivals, enforced absences/separations, assassination attempts...a dash of treason for good measure, in more ways than one.

Bring it! :yes:

Good writing everyone! This is also a test for Elora's notification alerts (different IP)

No alert for that last message, Hanasian. I notice that I do receive reliable notifications when Jax posts. Intermittent notifications when Hanasian posts, though despite us both operating off the same IP at him, I did get the notifications for your last RP post, Hanasian.

Go figure *shrug*

Sounds pretty random. :closedeyes:

Yestarë ~ 1431
What is in store for Gondor? Here is how I see it:
Things will continue to deteriorate, and King Valacar's health will decline toward the latter half of the year. Eldacar will become regent toward the end of the year setting off a full-fledged rebellion in Pelargir and the surrounding province.

I am working on a Halvarin post for Yestare but the hour has grown late and mty typing is suffering for it. That and the fack Scooter our cat if climbing all over me in front of me and standing on the mousepad.

^^ case in point :lol:

Sounds good to me, Hanasian.

Apologies for monster post. Some "Easter Eggs" embedded in it:

1) Amarwen's state of mind - the past six months have been difficult for her, to say the least. She has reconstructed her heart and her life but she is changed. The bitter lessons learned haunt her, leave her vulnerable.

2) Amarwen's letters - she's still writing them...yet Halvarin's father is not aware of them. Who has them? Farien? Or are they waiting at the Academy, unread by Halvarin now that he no longer resides there.

3) Almara & Amarwen - some insight, I hope, both on the work the two share, just what Amarwen has been working on with Aldamir and the friendship between the two women. How much will Almara divulge to Amarwen?

4) Vinyarion - clearly he's become estranged from Halvarin (stands to reason given preceding events) but is worried for his friend - but Amarwen proves unable or unwilling to intervene (convinced that she is no longer welcome in Halvarin's life in any form). Given his propensity for "fixing" things, he just might go elsewhere to fix the mess he thinks his friend has made of his career. But who? His father, his grandfather, his uncle?

Mwahahahahahahaha - Amarwen is busy recruiting, but will the recruits play ball...and will Aldamir agree to what she will propose.

Hullo incipient Spy Mistress of Gondor.

Alrighty - for context/info purposes....Amarwen's mystery letters to Halvarin:

Amarwen’s Letters

Early Cermië – 1430


I’m so confused. I do not understand it. Lisawyn in your arms mere moments after I left them.

You told me that you loved me. You told me that my betrothal would not be an end to us. Was it all lies? I cannot believe that you would be so cruel. I cannot believe that I could have misjudged your character all these years. Was it all just an act?

I know I said I would let it rest, but this is driving me mad. What did I miss? I cannot tell whether you have deceived me and I was simply too stupid to see it or if I have deceived myself.


~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Late Cermië – 1430


What is wrong with me? You turned your back on me. And yet, all I can think of is you. I want to be free of you. Just as you have freed yourself from me.


~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Early Yavannië – 1430


A report came today of a ship sunk. All hands lost with it. As I heard it, I felt sick to my stomach. What if you had been aboard? It was all I could think of.

I do not why I still care. But I do.


~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Mid Yavannië – 1430


Why will you not speak to me? Just a note. It doesn’t have to be long. Are you alive? Were you on that ship? I cannot obtain a manifest of those onboard. The Guild refuses to release it. I beg of you, please, tell me you live.

Please! Have mercy on me.


~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Mid Narquelië – 1430


Father sent me a copy of the manifest. Your name is not amongst those lost. Is torturing me a game for you? Are you enjoying this?


~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Late Narquelië – 1430


I cannot change what has been done. I cannot force you to love me. But I can, and I will, forgive you. I must. For my own sanity, if nothing else.

I must stop dwelling on what has happened. We were not always like this. I must remember the kinder, gentler days. I was happy, then.


~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Mid Hísimë – 1430


Final results for the year come out soon. I imagine you will have done well.

I really should stop writing.


~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Early Ringarë – 1430


How do you know if you love someone? I used to think I knew. I do not want to repeat the same mistakes again. I am not sure I could bear that anguish a second time. It is a nightmare, Hal, to believe in your heart of hearts that you are not loved.

I would not wish that on my worst enemy. Or you.


~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Late Ringarë – 1430


It will be Mettarë soon. I find myself thinking of times you joined us for the season at Edhellond. Remember when we snuck into the cellars and drank some wine? There will be none of that here. The palace cellars are kept under lock and key...and you should see the fellow that has the key.

I think even Vinyarion would think twice about stealing the cellar key from him.

Even though you probably will not read this...for what it is worth, I hope that you have a wonderful Mettarë. And I hope that you can find it within you to wish for me the same.

May the New Year bring peace.

No worries Jax - we’re both rattling around Seattle at the moment catching up with family. :)

Alrighty. :)

I got my post up. Hopefully there were not too many typos. My small phone keyboard is a pain and I didn’t have the patience to re-read it all. Lol
