I’m always on the lookout for any tidbits that might either support or dash my hopes for my Prince Runaan headcanon (pt 1, pt 2). The new map in Book One: Moon happened to catch my eye because I spent so much time staring at maps of Mirkwood for my old Thranduil fanfics.

On the left: Mirkwood, in Middle Earth. The turquoise circle at the top right is where the elves currently live, in the Elvenking’s Halls, with Thranduil as their king. The red circle in the bottom right is Dol Guldur, née Amon Lanc, King Oropher’s first castle in the forest before the evil of the shadow gradually pushed the elves northward.

And on the right: similar positions for the Silvergrove and the Ruins of Elarion in Xadia.

I haven’t read the book yet, obviously, since it doesn’t come out until next week, but I’ll be super curious to learn if there are any tiny hints about Elarion’s relationship to the history of the Moonshadow Forest.

But for now, I’m super stoked to see that the forest that the Moonshadows might’ve immigrated eastward to when the lava border was drawn really looks like the forest that Oropher and Thranduil immigrated to after their homeland was lost to them as well. TDP cartographers giving me life today!

The only reason why I want Viren to have a redemption arc is because of how well he raised his kids to be compassionate, brave and kind and loyal.

And because when he gets out of his psychotic phases you can SEE how much he loves his kids and how far he is willing to protect them

Also he really loved and respected Harrow but got blinded by power

I really think he went for power because he really wanted the best for the human kingdom and his kids at first and then got lost in the way when he met Aaravos.

He is a morally grey character and one of the most complex of the show, it would be too easy to just sum him up as evil

Viren : Can you not stand so close. You are making me claustrophobic

Soren: What does that mean?

Claudia : It means he is scared of Santa Claus

Viren : No, it doesn't—

Soren :[giggling] HO HO HO!

Claudia : Stop it Soren, you are scaring him.

I’m pretty sure that Claudia (and probably Soren) are gonna eventually get Redemption Arcs™ because of how the story is framed but HOO BOY does Claudia creep me the fuck out. I wonder what the fandom attitude towards her thru season 2 was? I can honestly see it going several different ways. She’s the Sympathetic White Girl and whathaveyou, but she is VERY cavalier about murdering, dismembering, and using the various bits of everything from magical wildlife to like, sentient creatures. She even got visibly annoyed when someone else was uncomfortable with it–I carve up fish and shellfish all the time to eat, but it makes my mother sick and so I don’t shove it in her face. I definitely don’t accuse her of making a moral judgment about me based on her discomfort. 

She might not know they’re sentient, though. Would she draw the line at elves? Probably not, she doesn’t appear to register them as “people.” Humans? I wanna say yes? She seems like she has a cognitive dissonance (no doubt from her father) between humans and every other living thing on the planet. It didn’t seem to be shaken at all by contact with Rayla and evidence that she’s, you know, a living, thinking, feeling person. 

Anyway, it’s interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing where both of their character arcs go since it could honestly go a lot of different places here. Just one last thing: both kids seem almost slavishly devoted to their dad and it makes me wary. Viren seems to care for his kids from what little we see on screen, so I don’t want to just blanket call him an abusive dad, but also a huge chunk of their interaction was him setting them,,, not against each other exactly, but when an adult, even your parent, says to you, I’ve got a secret thing for you to do and you can’t tell anyone you trust, not even your mom/brother/sister/teacher etc… Maybe like… run. It’s not a good look for Viren… or for Soren, whose dumb ass was about three seconds and a well placed elf away from murdering a small child.

ok sorry if this has been said before, I don’t really follow the Dragon Prince fandom but in season 2 the whole Aavaros and Viren communicating through mirrors /screens it really gives me a webcam /video chat vibe. Like, at first Viren watches a streaming (in a voyeur way but that’s another story), Aavaros starts making a weird tutorial that he follows. After time he anxiously accepts to turn on his camera/mic, only to get catfished/scammed by Aavaros.
