What kind of stuff do you want to see in AMOL?

Recommended Posts

I don't necessarily mean specific events, but is there some battle, fight, or one-power usage that you want to see?

 

For example, I want to see:

 

1.) Due to Lan dying or being in grave danger, Nynaeve unleashes hell on a horde of shadowspawn and kicks some a$$.

2.)Someone close to Rand (hopefully Elayne, since she's so sure she will be fine because of Min's viewings about the twins) dies, and Rand loses it and starts blasting the crap out of whoever.

3.) Some sort of huge battle between Dreadlords and Aes Sedai/Ashaman.

4.) Bella dies and its the saddest part of the series.

 

So I guess basiacally I want to see huge ridiculous One Power usage.

I've always thought the military campaigns and battles in WoT are as good as it gets in fantasy, and the defense of Maradon was as good as it gets in WoT. AMoL is supposed to be very battle-heavy, and I, for one, look forward to it. I'm particularly looking forward to the participation of Dreadlords, whether black-eyed Aiel, Ashaman, or Black Ajah, in battle.

1. I want Gawyn to kill Rand. For one Moiraine's reasons will be for the good of all...which is boring. And Gawyn/Rand/Galad/Egwene is a ticking time bomb of a mess, and it'll be very disappointing if it doesn't go off.

 

2. I want a Luc/Rand or Luc/Galad or Slayer/Lan moment.

 

3. Amazing battle scenes. Lots of blood. And some unexpected results deaths/survivors/condition of survivors.

 

4. Not a tidy end. I'd like resolution, but considering the Seanchan situation it'll be a very delicate line between believable and fairytale.

 

5. Tuon to not be forced to channel. I would hate that for so many reasons. Most of all due to actually seeing it as a possiblity. Sigh.

I am looking forward to the Moiraine/Rand reunion.

 

Then Moiraine killing him.

 

hahahahahahaha!

 

I'm curious why you find that so funny. :)

 

The bloodlust made me laugh.

I want clothes porn and atleast two chapters dedicated to Elayne taking a bath.

 

During her reunion with Aviendha after the Last Battle?

 

"Oh, I'm so dirty after all of that fighting. Ooooooppppps! Giggle. I seem to have dropped my soap in the tub, near-sister. Can you see if you can find it. I think it's between my legs. Hee-hee.

 

"Oh, Avi, what are you doing? That feels so good!"

 

 

"They do not call us Maidens of the Spear for no reason, near-sister."

 

Etc, etc.

Nah it's got nothing to do with Avi having been a Maiden of the Speer, it would be one of those special Aiel weaves the WO know, called "Caressing the Woman".

I want to see the use of previously unused ter'angreals, such as the Dull Dagger, Bent Rod, Talisman of Growing, the various ones for talking long distances...etc.

Very much looking forward to the battles, with Brandon's flair for the cinematic battle scene and RJ's notes probably indicating emotion filled tension and horror the mix could very well be amazing. Basically Maradon was fantastic and I'm looking forward to more.

I want to see the deaths of the main and tier 2 characters. I don't want to learn of someone's death through dialogue in the next chapter.

 

For example...

 

Chapter 2 - Lan goes charging into battle against overwhelming odds.

 

Chapter 3 - Nynaeve stops mid-sentence and mid-tug of her braid as she feels Lan die.

I want to see Egwene meet Tuon.

 

Given the history Egwene has with the Seanchan and their attacks on the White Tower, add in the manipulation Graendal has over Tuon in ToM. Any meeting between the two should be good.

 

Plus as we see in ACoS Chapter 10 from Egwene's dream that a golden hawk (that is female) touches her and they are tied together. That the meeting is going to happen and they are going to be connected somehow!

 

I'm basing Tuon being the Golden hawk based on the interview in which RJ (9th December 2002) talks about the Raven being the symbol of the Seanchan, but the Golden Hawk being the symbol of the Imperial family (of which Tuon is virtually the only one left.)

 

Should be a good few chapters there...

 

Edit: I know the Golden Hawk could be as the symbol of Mayene, and refer to Berelain, but I feel Tuon is more likely as we have a Seanchan woman that has to come and rescue her from her dream CoT Chapter 20.

I want everyone to die. The Dark One to win.

And then, at the end:

I win again, Lewis Therin.

*flicker*

 

One of my favorite sequences from the entire series.

Please keep this thread to "what you want to see..." not what you "think" will see. I think there are 20 topics already on that.

 

But anyway what I want to see:

 

1. Galad asking to be bonded to Eqwene. I think this is still possible as Egwene is linked Galad per MIn...although could just be referring to the Amy Seat and the Grand Wizard Poobah KKK guy.

2. Berelain going all nuts about that and shaving her head. Tests for the white tower and gets accepted.

3. Logain POV in a one power battle versus either Taim or Big D.

4. FInding out who the heck Androl is supposed to be.

5. Tam versus a blademaster.

6. Sleete getting his ass kicked. I dont particularly care for his character or late addition at this point in the game. I would prefer Elyas to do the deed.

7. Raen (sp?) Aram's g-dad i think - finding the song.

8. Faolain hooking up with Else Grinwell.

9. Rand going blind and everyone calling him Maud dib.

Nynaeve laying the groundwork to lead a large portion of the Aes Sedai against the use of the Oath Rod and other useless/worn out traditions and operating procedures of the White Tower. Also, her in some ridiculuously awesome battle scenes, and possibly discovering some long lost skill or ability. (Since she's the most 'I'm doing things my way' out of all the AS.)

 

The Seanchan get nuked. I don't care how it happens, pre or during the LB, but I want them decimated. And all or most of the damane freed. Tuon dying would be nice (outtrigger novels, I know,) if only because I'd much rather Mat be with someone else.

 

One last major twist or completely unexpected event. (Or many.) It could be an interpretation of a prophecy no one saw coming, a betrayal, anything.

 

The tinkers find the song, but it doesn't have a major impact on the story. Maybe some hints that it will help the land and people recover after the LB, but on screen, just a fun little moment where some tinkers finally find what they're looking for.

 

The Aiel do something unbelievably awesome. Say, Rand 'dies,' world goes dark, the Aiel say, screw it, and march every single one of them, both warriors and non, straight at Shayol Ghul, making true of their 'spit in sightblinders eye on the last day' saying, and in doing so, save humanity until Rand returns.

 

Fain does something memorable, but nothing with a direct impact on the ending. His influence and screen time has been in such a decline lately I just feel like it would be a bit too much for him to play a major role in the ending.

 

Siuan and Leane get healed to full strength.

 

Forsaken go out with a bang, except maybe Moggy, just because it would fit her character to be unceremoniously blown away by Nynaeve.

 

No permanent major good guy deaths. After all the years spent with this series, I am very much hoping for positive endings for all the Two Rivers folk and TEOTW crew.

At least one of the Forsaken surviving.

 

No major Darkside characters turning back to the Light.

 

No major characters suddenly discovering they can channel.

 

No rash of marriages and pat, happy-ever-after endings.

 

Heaps of "wow, didn't see that coming" moments.

 

Nynaeve doing something amazing.

 

Good ends (whether that's a heroic death or life in the Fourth Age) for Teslyn, Juilin, Uno, Tylee, Harine, Egeanin and Pevara.

 

Major smackdowns for Tuon, Egwene, Elayne and Aviendha.

 

Major setbacks for the Seanchan.

 

Damane freed.
