Would you rather ...

Q: Why Suroth?

 

A: A Taraboner veil seems less bothersome to "maintain;" and it can be removed in a private setting.

 

Q: Would you rather be Sorilea or Cadsuane? And why?

(Suroth because she isn't bound by the oath rod and not sent out to the desert. Galina is not only a slave but also an addict forever denied her fix. Also Therava is one of the scariest characters in the series.)

 

Cads. Her life is freaking awesome.

 

In terms of power/position would you rather swap places with Beslan or Berelain?

Berelain by a mile. That woman is awesome! And she landed WoT's most beautiful mate; and she doesn't know how strong that connects her to the DR (her objective right from the start).

 

Would you rather be Elyas Machera or Gaul?

Elyas. Wolfbrother is more unique, and Gaul still hasn't really resolved his relationship problems quite yet has he?

 

Would you rather be a "Great Captain" (Mat/Bashere/Ituralde/Jagad) or a strong Channeler?

Black tower.

Honestly, I'd rather face foes that I can at least try to fight than drama twisted around more drama.

 

Would you rather ...

Be able to make Ter'angreal?

Be able to forge Power Weapons?

Making ter'angreal is not an exclusively destructive skill. Some ter'angreal could be used for plenty of good "civilian" purposes.

 

Would you rather be Galad or Lan?

Lan. Even though Galad has smoking good looks and is gonna marry an absolute babe, I think Lan is way cooler. Malkeri > Whitecloaks imo.

 

Would you rather be a female channeler in Seanchan territory (knowing you would soon be collared) or a male channeler pre-Ashaman (knowing you would soon go mad)?

Male channeler pre-Ashaman. At least you still have a shread of self-respect and are at least still considered human.

 

Would you rather

 

fight ten Trollocs

or

fight one Fade?

Isle of Madmen, much less is told of it in the series thus far and would be a more fresh experience.

 

 

Would you rather be Shaidar Haran and experience losing all your power?

OR

Be doomed to wear the Domination Band for eternity with Semirhage and Therava wearing the bracelets?

I would rather wear the Domination Band because in a few years, Semirhage and Therava would be at my mercy as much as I at theirs  :tongue: It would be a huge sacrifice; but Semirhage and Therava would be at my mercy as much as the reverse! 

 

The Shadow Rising: Into the Palace:

 

And if you mean to use it, it does have... drawbacks, shall we say? Put the collar on a man who channels, and a woman wearing the bracelets can make him do whatever she wishes, true, but it will not stop him going mad, and there is a flow the other way, too. Eventually he will begin to be able to control you, too, so you end with a struggle at every hour. Not very palatable when he is going mad. Of course, you can pass the bracelets around, so no one has too much exposure, but that does mean trusting someone else with him. Men are always so good at violence; they make wonderful weapons. Or two women can each wear one bracelet, if you have someone you trust enough; that slows the seepage considerably, I understand, but it also lessens your control, even if you work in perfect unison. Eventually, you will find yourselves in a struggle for control with him, each of you needing him to remove your bracelet as surely as he needs you to remove the collar."

 

Would you rather be a female Trolloc or a human woman captured by Fades?

Female Trolloc, according to the BWB they enjoy their lot in life as lil' monster breeding machines.

 

Would you rather see a grolm fight a trolloc

or see a raken fight a drakghar?

Grolms cleansed Seanchan of Trollocs and shadowspawn. I'd like to see how they did that.

 

Would you rather be an Aiel clan chief, Randland Great Captain, or Seanchan Lt. General?

My first preference would be Sarene Nemdahl, even Demandred though her stunning! But with the above choices I'll go with Thom Merrilin.

 

Having mentioned Sarene, would rather be a warder to Sarene Nemdahl or to Myrelle Berengari?

Totally rather be Elyas. Put his Aes Sedai in her place for letting her sisters try to gentle him and whatever else they were going to try doing to him.

 

Would you rather

Be taken prisoner by M'Hael

Or prisoner of Hessalam?

M'Hael. Aside from the sexy factor, I'd rather be 13x13 than get a treatment of Hess' compulsion.

 

Would you rather keep getting daily doses of aMoL in sentence form or receive a whole page once a week (its placement being the same as the average of the one/two liner releases)?

Same daily doses. Like a good Domani gown, each snippet reveals nothing, yet hints at everything.

 

BTW, why would you rather be 13x13 than compulsed? 

 

On book releases,

Would you rather:

Have the RJ-written conclusion now, and never, ever get the lead-up to it,

or have everything but the conclusion now, and wait another five years for the conclusion?

ouch, tough one. I'd say the RJ conclusion now because i'm crazy compulsive, and it would be nice to get some closure and finally debunk some theories

 

Keeping to the book idea:

 

If you could bring back RJ and have him re-write a Brandon Sanderson book (or edit it), which would it be (options limited to TGS, ToM, and AMoL)

For me it would be between TGS and ToM because RJ wrote most of AMoL before he died, but probably ToM because RJ seems to write dramatic parts better than BS.

 

Would you rather be a King/Queen in Randland(that actually controls their nation, unlike Tylin)?

or

Be the Seanchan Emperor/ess?

King in Randland. Screw that slavery baloney. And the murdering. And the general awfulness of their culture.

 

Would you rather:

Be a Sh'boan/Sh'botay and die after seven years in power

or

be a layman in Randland?

Sh'boan / Sh'botay. Live life to the fullest, I say

 

Would you rather be tortured for a week by Semirhage or a slave to Graendal forever?
