DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY
Dennis Brennan

Imagine if texting was retained from the Age of Legends to the Third Age. How might it have been different?

Riiiiight. I'm glad you pointed that out because every part of my scenario is realistic except that one. :rolleyes:

 

Instead of "stealing kisses", Rand and Elayne would Sext each other in the Stone.

Mat: Betse are you DTF or not?

 

Betse: Mat what is DTF? Does it have to do with dancing? Bc I love to dance. Are you sure your not a lord?

 

Mat: Nevermind just STFU for once and bring me some more ale.

Mat: 3?!! Run for your life! I thougt the Aiel were nuts having 2 but 3? Get some healing for that madness. And its u and P that are good with women.

 

Perrin: Just yell at them it works for me. And Mat is right. Get to SG right now and save the world before they make u any crazier. But you and M are the women experts.

 

Rand: Uh guys you mean none of us knows what the hell we are doing with women? Im off to SG RIGHT NOW!

Swap all instances of characters sniffing & smoothing skirts, into repeated textual incidences of the phrase "ugh omg" or OR "omg ugh"

if they used contemporary texting terminology, I would have destroyed any association with the series I had. God I hate the 'phone language'.

Of course I agree with you to an extent on that Durinax but it is a fun way to reimagine the characters.

 

You can just imagine Mat constantly texting Tuon after she returns to Ebou Dar and Tuon thinking about how he is just a tiny bit needy.

How would the series have been different if the characters could text? They would text a lot, but communicate about as much as they do now. So, not really any different, save for the added annoyance of having to read their moronic texts. If they had facebook? Well, most posts on facebook are made by people with a desperate need to say something but nothing to say. Plenty of words, so little content.

Well one thing is for sure texting would be forbidden while channeling at the White Tower as soon as something like this happens:

 

We have a Green out to enjoy her tea in the gardens and so she decides to reheat her tea with Fire, sees a hot Warder walk past and just have to text about it and actually makes hot Warder or something go boom.
