House of Finwë deathwatch

2nd March 2016 (13:50)

I mentioned this earlier... situation as of HoM-e(CV) part 273.

I'm counting members by birth, not marriage (ie, Finwë's children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren); and 24 is the number who were alive when the Two Trees last bloomed.

Amrod is a Schrödinger's Fëanorian: possibly alive, possibly dead, depending on which version of the story you use. :)

Well, Findis and Finarfin are safely back home in Tirion...

Additional Finwëans would be Finduilas and Gil-galad, and Maeglin, and Celebrían... um, about the 'dying' thing...

I presume Eärendil, Elros and Elrond and their descendants may count as well.

Hey, Celebrian didn't die! She was still alive when she got on that ship.

For the not-dying, I was thinking Celebrian (though not in great shape, obviously), Earendil, and Elrond. I wasn't counting Elrond's children, since they don't exist in the Silmarillion time period. (And technically, we don't know whether his sons choose the Fate of Men or not.)

House of Finwe: for immortal beings, they're really bad at not dying. :(

That made me laugh.
