Five things to expect from the Wheel of Time TV show in TV Show Posted August 7, 2019 On 6/23/2019 at 10:14 PM, Ladysidhe said: I don't have a problem with diversity, but fundamentally changing the characters' relationships to one another (Egwene/Gawyn, Perrin/Faille, Moiraine/Thom, Siuan/Gareth, Mat/Tuon, Rand/Min/Aviendha/Elayne, and Nynaeve/Lan, Birgitte/Gaidal Cain), makes them no longer the characters from the books; the writers would then have to change the motivations for many of the things these characters do, and as a result, it would disrupt the actual storyline--since these relationships directly affect important plotlines. There are already many characters in the books who DO represent the LGBTQ community (Aran'gar and Osan'gar, Ailil Riatin and Shalon din Togara Morning Tide, Elaida and Meidani, Galina and Tarna, Seonid Traighan, just to name a few), and the books are already racially diverse. If they're going to change things just for the sake of changing them, they may as well just make up an entirely new story and forget about WoT. I agree with you 100% They don't listen to fans though. Just look at Stephen King's adaptations. We will always have the books though!
