Snow is in tonight's forecast. Bah! It's too early for snow. Time for a sequel to "Islands of Warmth in a Sea of Cold."

Yay for everyone joining in with the advent calendar (*waves to Cheeky*). It's probably time we got this show on the road.

Hi there Himring. Great to see you posting here again. :)

Wow! It is mind blowing how extensive Aragorn's lineage is, isn't it!
And it is equally mind blowing that Galadriel and Celeborn and Elrond are tied into that.

It also means he is also, somewhere, somehow, related to Feanor's line, through Fingolfin and Finarfin does it not? Although distantly I think.

I'm still sitting here reeling!

I loved the last part; " You were there," said Aragorn to Elrond. "You were there, in Elros' time and in Elendil's." I couldn't imagine what it would have been like for Elendil to meet Elrond the twin of Elros, the first King of Numenor and his descendant.

Thank you Himring! This has been such so insightful and a reminder of how interesting, complex and fantastic this whole history is. :D

Author's Response:

Thank you very much, Gabriel!

Yes, Aragorn's lineage is mind-blowing, isn't it! So extensive and spanning so much time and so many people and races!

He is directly descended from Fingolfin (through Earendil and Idril) but only indirectly related through Fingolfin to Finarfin and Feanor, I think. (Arwen, on the other hand, is directly descended from both Fingolfin, on her father's side, and Finarfin, on her mother's side.)
