Andrahar, an OC created by Isabeau, first made his appearance in her story Captain, My Captain. Since then, other authors - Dwimordene, Altariel, Soledad - have been inspired to write about the character and his background, and his relationships with the Princes of Dol Amroth and the House of Mardil. We've collected these stories together here under the title Best-loved Sons.
The stories are listed in roughly chronological order, although some take place during the events of others as we wrote stories in response to stories; for example, Visions takes place during the time covered by In Extremis.
Soledad's stories also connect to her own story cycle about Boromir; you can find those stories here.
