      Moving out of one tiny, tiny apartment into an slightly less tiny one. How do I have so much stuff?!

      The Silmarillion was published on the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows? That's... oddly appropriate

      Anyone else feel vaguely under-prepared for this session? No? Just me? Alrighty, then.

        There was a long discussion of elvish views of death, considering their tendency for reincarnation and how that makes their attitudes different from humans.

        Ah. I can see how that would provide material for a longer discussion.

        Actually, I've felt that way almost all of this season Marielle. Trying to get back on track...

      Kicking myself very hard for JUST NOW thinking of the parallels between Edmund Pevensie and this season's Aragorn.

        Remind me of the parallels.

        We have our young Aragorn committing a foolish act, one that gets someone killed, and growing in wisdom and compassion because of it. Edmund in The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe falls in with the White Witch, leading directly to Aslan's sacrifice, and so growing from his experience he becomes known as Edmund the Just as King of Narnia.

        Yeah. I was supposed to be doing that journey -- from my sister's workplace at Mount Rainier to my parent's home in Memphis --
        over the course of two weeks, with my sister and parents, in an epic camping and hiking trip. But Dad had emergency triple bypass, so I flew to WA so my sister didn't have to drive the family van back to TN alone, and we sprinted back...

      Well, seems to me that the Valar are eating pop-corn watching Sauron in his exploits. Since the people of Middle-earth are hopelessly outdone, they sent the Istari to prolong the fun.

        "prolong the fun" probably isn't the vibe we're going for with the benevolent Valar, but it could very well be our motivation when we get there!

      You know something I've never thought of before? Does *everyone* in Rivendell know who Estel is? Down to the scullery maids?

        That mere ranger is Aragorn son of Arathorn, though, and the very name makes him Isildur's Heir. Which...is a secret (he doesn't know it), hence the name Estel. Elrond and Gilraen know who he really is. Surely a lot of other people could figure it out. But as to whether or not they *know*, well...it's probably one of those things you don't talk about. Like the fact that Elrond has a Ring of Power.

        Gandalf has a ring of power, too, which he hardly needs, being one of the Istari. Why did the Valar send them to Middle-earth in the first place, if they are not allowed to use their powers?

        They were to counsel the Free People's against the dark powers, I.e. Sauron and not to use their powers to dominate others.

        Any thoughts on my idea?

      That was not at all how I expected the Frame to be settled out, but I think I like it!
      1. MithLuin
        MithLuin
        Well, the Fell Winter was a surprise! But it does add a cohesive story to the Frame narrative that we'd been poking at, so I'm fine with that.

        I missed the session and was surprised by the ideas that came up but in a totally positive way. I can't wait to listen to the discussion!

        Yeah, and Fell Winter complements the Helcaraxe so perfectly too.

      Listening to Session 3-01: I fully agree that we can keep even the Feanoreans likable. After all, even the worst of them have nothing on GoT

        Although, I've joked that Got wants to be SilmFilm when it grows up.

        Ha! They wish! But yes, in a way GoT would make this project easier: they've proven, at the very least, that an audience will follow an epic story with many threads.

        Genetics was my favorite unit to teach in Biology, so....I would often use fantasy traits like hobbit hair color or magic in Harry Potter as examples for the students to analyze the family trees for patterns of inheritance ;).
