Imrahil/His wife is rather implied by the children, but I haven’t come up with a name for her yet.Summary:
Elphir, Erchirion and Amrothos await the birth of their youngest sibling, but things don’t go exactly as expected…Warning:
Several mentions of sibling fights.AN: b2wm
sicced the Imrahil muse on me a couple of days ago, and this is one of at least four fics that spawned because of it… I wrote this at close to midnight last night (don’t panic, I’ve re-read it since then), which may be why this isn’t my normal style – it’s longer, and much more verbose, but I like it. It seems to suit Amrothos’ point of view. If you’re not familiar with the Dol Amroth clan, there’s a slight twist at the end. And I blame 50lyricsfanfic
entirely for the references to Narn i Hin Húrin cropping up.
As for the characters: Elphir, Erchirion and Amrothos are Imrahil’s sons. In this fic, Elphir is twelve, Erchirion is nine, and Amrothos is five. Imrahil is forty-four, and his wife has no name or specific age as of yet, although I freely admit b2wm
was a major influence.
The title: well, I couldn’t really go around calling it ‘The Birth of [Stop! Fic-spoiling information]’, could I? And I like one-word titles. Cygnets are baby swans, and all kinds of cute
. Love ‘em.
