This thread will serve the purpose that the Thisguy thread has served on the Pre-release board. Basically it’s for all discussion of the quality of aMoL, and permits all forms of critique (positive or negative) and discussion thereof. What it does not permit is personal attacks against Brandon or Team Jordan--"I don't like Brandon as a writer" is okay, "I hate Brandon" is not, and will be met with like any other personal attack. In addition, people are under specific instruction in this thread to be on their best behaviour. It's a charged topic, whatever your position, but personal attacks and abusive behaviour will not be tolerated.
Okay, we did this for TofM and it was fun, so here's the deal. This thread is not for discussion, its just for stating your predictions so they are on record to be applauded or lamented when aMoL comes out (all in good fun). Feel free to say if you agree with someones thought, or if you see something you've never seen before, but by and large if you want to discuss someones idea create a new thread for it. Here are mine! Looking forward to yours! May we all giggle ourselves silly at our silliness when the book comes out (note, its often fun not to be conservative. If you hope it will happen or want it to happen go for it. We're all nerds here). 1. The Seanchan woman on the mountain with the blurry face and the too solid sword is an army led by Fortuona to Egwene's aid--the mountain (the obstacle they can overcome together) is a Shadowspawn siege of Tar Valon. 2. The Borderland Rulers will be killed early on in aMoL, either by Bashere, or by the Aes Sedai with them (despite being able to look at Rand). 3. Nynaeve will step up and take charge of most the Borderland armies as Queen of Malkier under the Pact of the Borderlands. Faile and Perrin will take the Saldaean army (and the Broken Crown). 4. Manetheren and Malkier will not return--Arafel, Shienar and Kandor will end up as one kingdom under Lan and Nynaeve--or Nynaeve and Lan's kid with however succession and the dual throne works in the Borderlands--both due to the fact that their rulers abandoned them to go south where Lan went north to save them, and Nynaeve's role in stabalizing their armies after their rulers die--Perrin will create a new nation spanning the Two Rivers to Saldaea, remaining linked to Andor in the Pact of the Griffin, but ruling as a King in his own right. 5. The Black Tower will be utterly destroyed in the Blood and Fire. Pevara and Androl will lead the survivors to Tar Valon, where they shall be welcomed (however begrudgingly). What was to be Elaida's palace will be the new Black Tower, and though the Asha'man will never become Aes Sedai the Two Towers will eventually become one institution where Aes Sedai and Asha'man stand equal. This will largely be brought about by Thom in payment to his debt to Owyn, using both his skills and the information Moiraine promised him about the Vileness--Moiraine will no doubt assist with her own skills. 6. The thing in the Tower that Nynaeve and Elayne found by Need that will help Rand is a ter'angreal that was involved in drilling the bore. It will be identified by Aviendha. 7. Fortuona will be forcibly sparked by the Graeffalump. 8. Either Thom or Gawyn will be able to learn to channel--Gawyn may have the spark. Either way one of the two will channel. 9. An Aes Sedai will end up soe'feia. 10. Verin sent Alanna to hunt Slayer. 11. Nakomi is largely irrelevant to the plot. 12. Rand having Justice is largely irrelevant to the plot. 13. Moiraine will show up Cadsuane. Cadsuane will betray grudging respect for Egwene. Cadsuane will die. 14. The Aiel WILL NOT return to the Way of the Leaf. 15. Aviendha will kill/capture the Graeffalump, perhaps freeing Fortuona at the same time (and choosing not to kill Fortuona). 16. Cyndane will be killed by Min. 17. If the Sharans invade the Waste it is as no more than a distraction to try and draw the Aiel away from Rand's side, and will be shown in no more than a handful of POV's. The Aiel will not fall for it, sending clans to delay them whilst staying by Rand's side till shade is gone. 18. Zaida is a darkfriend. Harine will oust her and defeat her coming to be Mistress of Ships and coming to see TG as more than just a situation the Atha'an Miere can benefit from. 19. The damane will not be free by the end of the book, but it will be in the works (and perhaps achieved by the time of the epilogue). 20. Rand and Moridin will swap bodies and Alivia will assist Rand in killing Moridin-in-Rand's-body (who am I to abandon this theory after so many years. :P I look forward to a good laugh about it though).
