Whitecloak and Mat Cauthon at DragonCon 2014

Sep 2 '14

dragonsfang:

One of the greatest things I learned at DragonCon this year was at one of the Wheel of Time panels where it was revealed to me that the Aiel all have thick Russian accents, THOSE MOTHERFUCKERS ARE A BUNCH OF BADASS WARRIOR GINGERS WITH RUSSIAN ACCENTS YOU KNOW OOSQUAI IS VODKA DUDES

I am very happy about this

The dragon*con panel: wheel of time: unwritten pages

eytancragg:

I arrived a few minutes late because everything at dc is way too fucking far apart. The topic in the room was RJ’s unwritten trilogy set after the main series, which were apparently going to be about Mat and Tuon’s adventures in Seanchan. The panelists said that RJ left roughly two sentences in his notes about these books, and that there is almost no chance they will ever get written.

They did say however that a new companion to the series is set to be published next year, know as the WoT Compendium (or something similar). The panelists said that this upcoming book would be the one, real, definitive companion to the books and that it would have new maps, artwork, and info.

The topic gradually changed to theorizing about what would actually occur in those unwritten books. Comments centered around the sul’dam and damane: how would they be used in the turmoil rocking Seanchan? How would Seanchan society react to the revelation that sul’dam can channel? (I contributed this part of the discussion. I brought up the fact that news will always travel, so it’s inevitable that the Seanchan homelands will learn of the sul’dam’s true nature.)

So there was a lot of talk about that, and how sul’dam would be treated once it was widely known that they could channel, or at least learn to channel. Some agreed that they would all be killed, others that they would be imprisoned in the stedding, still others that their status would not be changed overmuch. It was all very interesting and fun.

The topic gradually shifted to Randland: how would the eastern peoples of the world change? One of the biggest questions was male channellers: now that they are no longer doomed to madness and death, what will become of them? How big of a role will the Black Tower play in the lives of male channellers (with Logain at its head)? How will the different eastern cultures—Aiel, Sea Folk—treat their male channellers now? What relationship will the White and Black Towers cultivate? How would everyone react to the news of saidin’s cleansing? (I brought that part up.)

Any time the taint was mentioned there was a good bit of giggling.

One person suggested that Rand would continue influencing events in the various nations, which was immediately met with boos and denials. That was pretty funny. One of the panelists said, “He earned his peace.”

So the discussion generally centered around how various cultures would change after the series’ ending. It was really fun and wonderful.

TIDBITS AND FUN № 131

Brandon Sanderson

 I don’t know if you guys have heard this before—but the level of detail Robert Jordan went into in the worldbuilding…there was one point where I was working on Towers of Midnight, and I sent an email to Maria saying, “I can’t keep track of who is with Perrin. Do you have just a list somewhere?” And I was really just meaning the Wise Ones, right? And, you know, named characters. Maria comes back and says, “Well I just dug this out of the notes; I hadn’t seen it before. Maybe this will help. It’s a file called ‘With Perrin’”. I went, “Oh, good.” And I opened it up…no, that’s not what it is; it is the names of all the Two Rivers folk who haven’t been named in the books yet. [laughter] …who are traveling with Perrin, and often a little bit about each of them, and a list of several dozen names of people who haven’t been named yet. That’s the level of detail we’re talking about with this, and it was a challenge; it was a challenge on all of us.

So while talking to Maria and Harriet, Harriet told me this wonderful story where…you think he named someone after…(to Harriet)…a washing machine, was it? You remember you said, like there’s a little name on one of the washing machines…was it you?

HARRIET MCDOUGAL

The stove.

MARIA SIMONS

The stove is a Jenn Air, and every time I looked at it, I would think of the Jenn Aiel.

And there’s an Ogier St. in Charleston.

punnylittlepiggy:

the shadows rising cover pisses me off. I mean I know the cover-artist didn’t read the books but DAMN somebody could have given him some pointers

I THINK it’s meant to be Rand, Mat and Moiraine. but why would they all be hanging out together and why the fuck would Moiraine be serving them stew and where the shit is LAN

ALSO. Fires of Heaven. RJ writes, and I quote - “[Aviendha’s] dark reddish hair still came well short of her shoulders and hardly needed the folded brown scarf to keep it out of her face.”

meanwhile cover-Aviendha has a flowing, fiery, yellow-orange mane down her fuckin back

don’t even get me started on how everybody looks super haggardly-middle-aged

I named my kindle Egwene, so when i buy ebooks on my computer I have to select “deliver to Egwene” and that’s always funny to me for some reason

"Yes, Egwene al’Vere would like this book. I’ll send it to her immediately"

To really appreciate it, read the tags too

"I just realized I have two electronics named after wot characters my phone is named Moiraine and I’ve been calling my car Elayne because its green”
