I'm kind of waiting for Feanor to write a post to follow up the Saeryn/Eodwine dialogue. If I can put some ideas together, I'll go ahead and post, and Feanor, just ask Pio to put your response wherever it fits best, okay?

Oh! Good to know... I can't guarantee posting time for a few days, but Saeryn will be suitably reacted by the time I'm done.

When I thought I had no posting time, I forgot to take into account that I'm nocturnal and it's still early. Saeryn's reacted and waiting for Eodwine to break the news that he's going to keep her safe by shipping her out. She's so silly.

I for one don't see why Marenil can't have a rather prolonged visit. While Bethberry was innkeeper at the old white horse, I happen to have had a goodly four regular characters, two of them by sheer accident, but they ended up being part of the life of the party. So Jenny, don't feel like you have to get rid of Marenil; there's too much good writing to do for him.

Oh goody!

I intended to get rid of him, but then I liked him so much after I started writing with him...hmm...must come up with reason for him to stay around...

The immediate and obvious thing to do is give him a heart attack, but that doesn't seem very kind to the poor man.

Accepting ideas...

I think he's been more of a supervisor. He's a long-time, loved, trusted servant of the family, and while I'm sure he'd never hesitate to do manual labor, he's been working perhaps as the family's steward. He's probably managed contractors, but his skills lie in other areas.

EDIT: The challenge of keeping him around, of course, is that his reason must be something that pre-empts his duties to his Lord. A heart attack may well be the best thing, as no one would begrudge such a loyal and well-loved member of the household the time to recover, especially since Lin is there to keep the family posted. Then I could slowly, by letters from home, free him of his duties.

You could have Lin get into a pinch that only Marinel can understand how to deal with; it might be interesting to have Thornden have a run for his money in terms of stewarding ability. Or Marinel could give Thornden pointers on that. I'm thinking that at some point in the not so distant future, Eodwine will find it necessary to divide the responsibilities of almbudsman and steward between two individuals, and Thornden seems like a natural for the almbudsman job, which leaves a nice little opening for Marinel......

I'm not sure if he'll really look for a new job, yet, or cheerfully enjoy his retirement. He will want to stay where Lin is, and her 'visit' is likely to become quite stretched out. Actually, I've been thinking about this one all afternoon, and I think a heart attack is how I'm going to play it, and then see where it goes as he recovers and becomes a sort of wise grandfather figure for the whole bunch. The almbudsman isn't likely to need a lot of extra help for a while though, and that way he can perhaps slip into stewardship sideways, so that he's been really doing a lot of the job for a while before it's ever made official, just because he's bored of being a bedridden old man and "that young Thornden", and the "good young Lord Eodwine" need help.

Lin knows him well enough to nudge him in that direction, especially after her father releases him from his service. How's that sound?

Of course he is! But you must respect your elders...and calling full-grown adults "lad" is a bit of a weakness of Mar's. He does it to women, too, but they take it a lot better than men do. Women like being thought youthful. I wish I'd been around longer though, so many of the characters in the Hall are long-established, and I'm meeting them for the first time. Must remember to throw some PMs around perhaps as I interact with people for the first time.

Any chance you could post a summary of character names and their jobs?

If there is some Hawthorn at hand Ćňelhild may be able to help Marenil, perhaps Saeryn will recall her having mentioned that she had been required to help in the halls of healing during the war, but as she is outside at the moment and unaware of the events within I shall need for someone to fetch her.

Another Character

Feanor of the Peredhil..... Degas of the Folde..... Saeryn's belovčd twin; whereabouts currently unknown; a rather mysterious figure.

I add him to the list because he'll be returning, if not immediately, and I thought it unfair to spring someone from the Horse thread on all of our lovely new writers without warning.

Nerendil, is there any specific place that Saeryn should find Ćoel?

I'd like to move the time along to supper time pretty soon. Some options in that regard are that we don't need to get into an overblown description of all the healer's doings, and can pick the story up with Marinel abed and weak but past the crisis.

Nerindel, what does Adhel intend to do? And is it Ađelhild, or Aňeldhild? I thought it was Ađelhild but is that wrong? The difference for those to whom this looks like Greek, is alt/0240 versus alt/0242. In terms of pronunciation, the first is Adh - as in 'that', and the second is virtually Aewelhild, only the 'w' is pronounced with the lips in the 'y' position. It might seem hard but Germans talk this way all the time.

Anyway! .... is there anything anybody wants their characters to wrap up before we move this to suppertime?

Not really as difficult as it seems for English speakers. Just form your lips for kissing and then pronounce "ee" through the gap.

I'll wait for a few more responses before I move the time.

Nerindel, what does Adhel intend to do?
Well quite simply she plans to administer a Hawthorn tonic, though I have given it it's gemanic name (Hagehorn) in my post. Hawthorn was an extremely valuable medicinal herb and was used widely in anglo-saxon medicine to treat a number of ailments, not least of all feelings of congestion and oppression in the hearth region Basically it is a Cardiotonic, that will increase the blood flow to the heart. It also goes by several names including Mayblossom, Whitethorn, Hagthorn and Ladies meat, but to name a few.

I know Bethberry tended Saeryns injury in the White Horse, but I don't know if she kept a store of medicinal supplies in the inn, that is why I left my post open, hoping either Saeryn or Eodwine would know the answer. She will need either a ready made tonic or the berries of the hawthorn bush itself, either fresh or dried which she will crush and add to water to make the tonic.

Yes it is Ćđelhild. so no worries about anyone developing lip and tongue injuries trying to pronunce it!

She did leave some of her goods and herbs with Ruthven, to ease the old woman's infirmities. But it's not like Ruthven can run likkety-split to help on the spot. And she isn't a healer.

Women's folk medicine was an art learnt by apprenticeship. Maybe you'll just have to wing it? Or would Edoras have a midwife who could be called upon? Hmm. One Trotula, Dame Trot, the midwife, called upon because the barber-surgeon is out of town?

Oh, oh, oh! LMP, would you mind if I squeezed a post between here and your time jump? If you get around to writing the time jump before I put in my post, that's fine. . .

Also, wouldn't we have moved Jenny's older gentlemen to another room? Can I put that into my post as well?

I kind of assumed Marenil would not be moved until a healer from Meduseld said it was all right to move him...i.e. after the crisis is passed and he is sleeping naturally. Then, he would be put somewhere where he would not be disturbed, and Lin could be persuaded to leave him to rest.

Hm. Perhaps so. I guess that makes sense. I'll work with it as such.

Sorry for not posting here or on the main thread last night; RL ... which will happen tonight too. Anyway:

Nice work with the Hawthorn tonic, Nerindel!

I see that you've all decided the healer from Meduseld is not a medieval quack who goes on about the four humours and all that. (snicker)

I would have stated the same thing that Bethberry said.

Glad you squeezed a post in, Folwren.

Nice writing, Jenny! I like the development of Lin's and Marinel's history. Very visual.

Kath: What are you doing to my kitchen!?!? It's going to be a mess by the end of one month at this rate! (not unlike the rest of the place)

I'll try to get something written by the end of tonight. If you want to post in between now and then, feel free. Oh, and if you do, don't forget about our late-breakfast consuming hobbit, Falco Boffin! Surely he would have something to say about all this hubbub....

Don't panic, I'm sure Frodides will have Kara clearing up before too long

lmp: you know that Marenil is not Lin's father, right? Something of a father figure, mayhap, but no relation.

Yes. Did I err in writing something somewhere?

Yes, Eodwine mentioned her and called her the daughter, or something. But it sounded more like an assumption. . .it could have been Eodwine's mess up, conceivably, and although you know the difference, he might not. But you'll want to straighten it out later with Lin or something.
