I've been pondering this from time to time. If Aragorn is directly related to Elros, Why couldn't he have choice to become Elven like Elrond? Because he is descended from Lúthien he could have chosen, yes, or am I wrong here?
Their story in some ways, at least through the film, seems a lot like the ancient story, and there is history about Arwen being most fair and a lot of talk of her having Lúthien's bearing. Most that was said about her was also said about Arwen. To some, Lúthien returned. There has been information emerging about how Arwen and Aragorn meet in Mandos and get permission or are awarded to live eternally in Valinor. I for one can see this happening, since this is one of those rare moments where such things do happen.
Now onto the lineage. If he was related to Elros:
- Did the choice end with that line?
- Doesn't Aragorn have relations to more ancient heritage? I mean, if he can be distantly but directly related to Arwen, couldn't he have this same option?
- Or are most Numenoreans just simply this?
