My thought was that they would be nameless characters and do a lot of listening, unless we have a known character or two that Sauron and Thuringwethil kill to impersonate.I think that a number of Sindar could have arrived before the feast to help add to decorations and preparations? They’d be servants or similar and move around doing stuff the Noldor nobles won’t really bother about. One or two artisans could be Sauron and Thuringwethil. Would we have to use subtitles for such situations? In any case, before the feast, the Noldor will not be as cautious as when the Sindar guests have arrived.
Or would they act as known characters?
Turgon is in Nevrast, and is going to host the Feast. Fingolfin and Fingon are in Hithlum/Mithrim region. I dunno where Finrod is at the moment...(he builds Minas Tirith soon after the Feast, but not yet). Angrod and Aegnor are in Ard-Galen and/or Dorthonion at this point (probably Dorthonion, then Ard-Galen after the Dagor Aglareb when the Siege is established). Orodreth is likely with Finrod, though he could be with Angrod. Galadriel is in Doriath. The Sons of Fëanor are all in East Beleriand, I would think.Where are the Noldor stationed up to the Mereth Aderthad?
It has occurred to me that the model you are suggesting for love-at-first-sight between Celeborn and Galadriel is similar to the meeting of Jen and Kira in The Dark Crystal. They are 'dream-fasted' and share their memories the instant their hands touch. It's interactive, but not under their control - it just happens, and suddenly they know one another quite well.Maybe it's an Elf-y mind-meld/what we may call magic. An uncontrolled or unintentional two-way telepathy.
So they judge that the safest thing is just not discuss anything that happened in Valinor?Apparently, they are not mentioning the death of Finwë in their initial story....which suggests that there *is* no actual story about what happened over there beyond them refusing to speak of it.
Ah thank you, I was messing things up... The point would be to have Sauron act as someone people around him don’t know and belonging to a group that some Noldoli nobles don’t know very well, som that two conditions are met: people could feel free to talk (but of course not too freely), while not actually knowing that they’re not overheard by someone who shouldn’t hear. I’m also a bit reluctant to have them listening during the party; what would be said about the Kinslaying during the feast?
Maybe one of the Fingolfinians and one of the Feanorians have a short words about not talking about the issue.Or rather i mean two fingolfinians talk about the Feanorians and not mentioning the kinslaying to cirdan or Thingol?I’m also a bit reluctant to have them listening during the party; what would be said about the Kinslaying during the feast?
