More to come between Saeryn and Thornden later. Tomorrow, maybe. I wasn't expecting that post to be mostly about Thornden thinking about Rowenna and Nydfara.

And Firefoot, as to Leof and Quin, I left it open for Leof to say something to Quin or follow him, or whatever. Elempi suggested they have a little competition trying to get someone to dance with, but I really don't know how I'd start such a thing. Kinda at a loss about how young men tease each other.

Really quite simple Foley, "Bet you can't get her to dance with you".... "Oh yeah? I'll show you." and so on.

Although you seem to be having perfectly well enough fun on your own I can see Quin going out to look for Tyrdda a good spot for interacting with somebody again. But for that matter, the most interesting probably is the mere fact of poor Quin walking out and finding Tyrdda in discussion with Hilderinc - now that opens so much space for misunderstandings or whatever, so if it comes to that, Foley (or whoever's characters still go out there), don't hold back with anything that might come to your - or Quin's - mind!

Sounds good, Legate. Do you want us to contact you when it comes to that? Or are you keeping an eye on this?

Thanks, but I think it won't be necessary, I am more or less keeping an eye on this, even at the moments when I am not exactly reading everything, I at least check the thread if I don't spot the word "Hilderinc" or something else that might be relevant. So I'll keep watch

There. That should give Scyld something to think about, as well as Quin when he comes back in to see his new friend dancing with the femme fatale.

Hmmm... what is Rowenna going to say to Léof? Not sure. I'll have to think about this. Any suggestions?

That the weather is great today.

There's the obvious "what do you think of Nydfara"... or the beaten up "what do you think of Eodwine's return"... Or, for something more original, you could turn the talk to Thornden and Saeryn. Or Falco. Or the going-ons outside of the Meadhall (Rowenna came from Edoras? Or from Minas Tirith? She could talk about that).

That's my two cents. Hope it gives you some ideas.

Okay, so hope I didn't misuse Tyrdda too much and/or embarass/confuse Léof

Oops. No idea how that came. Or, okay, I do have an idea how that came, since the two of them hang around with each other all the time But anyway, duly edited

The funny thing is, before I started writing that, I checked which one of them that was, since I wasn't sure back then - and apparently still messed it up. Ah, whatever.

Had to fix the co-post thusly.

Quote:
"No more doubts, Ginna. We will do this together, yes?"

Ginna said nothing, choosing instead to return Harreld's embrace. She did not know how many seconds, minutes, or hours they had stayed that way when a thought came to her.

"Harreld?"

Well, Harreld and Ginna are happily engaged (congratulations, you two), the conversation and witty sparing between Nydfara and Rowenna appear to be finished...

What else needs to be done before we pass onto the next day? Tomorrow holds some interesting things for us and our characters - G55's characters' introduction, for instance, and Eodwine's redress of the issue concerning Scyrr and his insult. So, I'm excited to move forward.

And Happy Thanksgiving, everybody.

Not a chance.

Also, Harreld and Ginna need to make an entrance as beaming dancers that will get everybody else wondering. I intend to write that from Eodwine's point of view (at least for starters). And Léof still has to respond to Rowenna. Not to mention Quin and Hilderinc and Tyrddha (unless that happened and I haven't seen it yet).

Okay, they did. Just as I thought. My turn. Might not be today... Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm okay with moving to the next Day. All we have to do is narrate some fitting conclusions to various conversation lines and call it a Night.

Firefoot, how would you feel about Léof telling Rowenna his story might take some time to tell and in the middle of a dance is not the best time, or something like that?

Are there any other plot lines that need to be put to sleep for the Night?

LMP, sounds good. I can wrap up Leof and Rowenna's conversation in my next post. Leof's not terribly forthcoming about his whole story anyway, so that would work well.

Also, how long of a jump do we need to make? I don't know that we necessarily need to go on to the very next day... maybe a week would be better, let things settle out and give characters time to process recent events... unless there are things that actually need to happen on the next day.

The only thing that really needs to occur is Eodwine calling for discipline to be applied to Scyrr. If that's it, I'm fine with writing that in retrospect.

What Elempi mentioned may be only one thing, but it's better than having nothing to go on, which is probably what we'd have if we skipped a while - besides G55's character coming in. With this Scyrr issue to deal with, we at least have a spring-board for ideas to come from.

Besides, what's the fun of writing stuff after everything's settled down? I think it'd be fun to see writers write their character figuring out what they think of these recent events.

My two cents.

Firefoot, I'd like to request a slight adjustment to your post in regard to Rowenna's words.

Quote:
“Some other time, then, you must tell me,” Rowenna said,
Could you please change this to:
Quote:
"Some other time, then," Rowenna said,
You see, she's very careful about making demands on others.

I will someday find what date it is and put that at the heading of my post...

I don't know if Lhuna is around to take up conversation with Saeryn. Do you know, Elempi?

And I imagine that most of the men won't be up for a while. It's probably something like five o'clock in the morning, and still pitch black outside. I say, skip however many hours as necessary to make the household stir.

Just today I started thinking about how I'd like to write an Elf - having him visit Scarburg, just passing through on his way to the Sea, taking one last look at what Humans are doing.

It's great to see things are going on around here! Kudos for you all!

I think it is the first time in about three months I've gotten to the 'Downs. It has been a much too tight a fall for my taste. But no can do.

Anyway. I'll try to steal time to read what has happened since I've last contributed (it seems to be about four pages of the actual story) and I do hope - *fingers crossed* - that I might have time to contribute something more steadily once again from a week or two onwards.

If there is anything I should know apart from what has happened in the story itself, I'd be thankful for getting a short briefing about the general ideas flying around...

Nogrod, how fortunate to have you back! Apart from what you read on the thread, there's really nothing going on that you need to be briefed on...so far as I know, anyway. Some interesting things happened before the dancing started at the feast, though.

Welcome back, Nogrod!

Do I need to do a character descrip for this elf? I suppose I will, considering I don't know how long he'll be visiting...?

Elf

Okay, this may be a bit of a rough draft, but I want to get it up now.

Name Laerdil (song lover)

Age/Gender/Race/Where from: about 7 thousand years old, born in the First Age, of the Nandor (of the Teleri who never crossed the Misty Mountains), has lived long in Loth-lorien.

Appearance very tall, black hair, sad grey eyes, lean and not broad of build, looks very young until one searches his face. He wears an Elven cloak so that he is not seen unless he wants to be. Carries a long knife at his belt and bow and arrows. Also carries a harp and pipe.

Personality/Bio: Laerdil is a lover of songs, and plays and sings. He has lived in Loth-lorien almost his whole life. He has been involved in a few wars and has survived with minimal wounds in any of them. He did take a spouse and they had a son and daughter, but he has outlived them all. His wife was slain by orcs early in the 3rd Age on the edges of Lorien. His son died in the Battle of Dagorlad. His daughter took ship when Amroth drowned in the sea. He stayed so long out of love for Lorien and loyatly to Galadriel. Now the one fades and the other is gone. The Elves are leaving Lorien or they face fading themselves. Laerdil has determined to follow his daughter over the Sea. But having never wandered far during his life, he has decided that he will see what Men are making of Middle Earth. He has left Lorien and has come south into Rohan, traveling mostly at night for love of the stars.

The names of his wife and children will come later as needed. If anyone has questions that may aid me in filling out this description, more, please feel free to ask.

It's a funny post, Firefoot, and I wouldn't ask you to change it for the world. But did you know that left and right footwear only came to be around 1850?
