The Eye Half-Elf Afterlife

I was wondering about the afterlife of Half-Elves.

I know that Elves, when slain, go to the halls of Mandos to await reincarnation, and that Humans go beyond the circles of the world with Eru.

But what of the Half-Elves, the ones that choose immortality, such as Elrond, or ones that choose immortality, but are human entirely, like Earendel, Or even those, like Arwen or Luthien, who choose mortality.

I am aware that some of these characters do not die (at least not in any published work), but I still am curious.

IMO, I think that it can be assumed that if you are a half-elf, and you choose either to live as a man or elf, depending on your choice of the matter, you would be treated accordingly.
Arwen would have the same fate as those of the sons of Men. I don't see any reason for it to be different.

Arothir has just left Hobbiton.

Shouldn't this be in the books or even novices and newcomers?
Then Felagund upon the head
of Arothir set it: "Nephew mine,
till I return this crown is thine."

Arothir, you are right. This topic is not appropriate for this forum.

But it is a rather interesting topic. Saraphim, you have alot to learn, but do not let your inexperience deter you.

Aiwendil has been trapped in the Barrow!

I'm moving this to The Books.

I think Maedhros is right. I don't see any reason that the ultimate fates of the fear of the Peredhil should not match the choices that they made.
