  1. Hi Wert, Thanks for the awesome report. I will also write down my experiences if i think of it:) I think it was an awesome panel and i have been to a few wot panels. regards, Isabel
  2. I don't believe the 'detailed ending'. They said that Jordan left detailed notes but Sanderson confirmed that all of Jordan's stuff was max. a few dozen pages with many contradictories. They said that Jordan (on his deathbed) told them the ending, but there was no tape (!), so someone recorded his words with shorthand. Sanderson told us that he 1. did not touch the ending, 2. tinkered a little bit, 3. tinkered a lot, so I assume the 'detailed ending' is just a myth. There is a tape. On the first Jordan Con they let us listen to part of the tape in which RJ told us part of the prologue:)
  3. I also haven't got a pin yet, although I sent them a message about it.
  4. I shared it also on Theoryland :)
  5. Hey bluecole, I think it's awesome you posted a blog with defense of the wheel of time :) I hope more authors will do that. And of course i hope you will nominate WoT for a hugo. Regards, Isabel
  6. I will definetly support WOT for the nomination:) And will visit world con if i am able!
  7. the sea folk used the BoW to keep the weather around SG from going crazy. And it could be that jordan had something cool in mind, but that it wasnt written down. So the build up was for something but couldnt be executed.
  8. I am honoured too:) the meeting with you and Linda in Melbourne was awesome! And you are awesome online too, even though we haven't interacted that much. Hope to still see you occasionally on the boards!
  9. Pfff, you can share a couch with me:)
  10. Exactly how I was thinking. Kind of surprised more people haven' t complained about it. It just felt so incomplete. If you had been following RJ, than you knew that he would never had written a huge epilogue with everything tied up. He wanted the world to be alive and he succeded in that. There are still a lot of things to discuss. We know he wouldn't have. That doesn't make it right. And again, I think it should be clear from our posts that we aren't aching for a Harry Potter-type epilogue where we know everything's okay and all questions are answered. A proper resolution winds you down out of the climax. I don't need to see Elayne's kids being born. I don't need to know Perrin and Faile go back to the Two Rivers or how the succession in Saldaea goes. That's different than what we're asking for. A little reflection by the characters now, that might be nice. Its what you would have wanted. Not what everyone wanted or even RJ.

  13. I didn't like Androl. The role he got didn't feel like a wot character, especially this late in the game. The use of the gateways was more a Brandon feel, than a Jordan feel. He also did way too much in the books. Thankfully, i didn't get too annoyed while reading:) so i still loved to see the ending ;) and all the events RJ planned.
  14. I think and hope that last sentence was by RJ. Why would tuon and Mat have a romantic ending? Rj intended to write about their adventures, so it wouldn't make sense for tat.
  15. The voice is clearly not the DO, as Fionwe says. It's the Creator. I am not going to post quotes, but read page 431 and 453. It's clearly not the DO. And Cherubin: why did you hate the last scene of Mat?
