So I have been bouncing around ideas in my head to now have a crossover fanfiction story between Wheel of Time and some other universe. Ultimately I chose Mass Effect because the universe allowed me to fit things into its rich lore here like a bad puzzle, I had to squeeze them in there, but it could work. Also, they are among my favorite book and video games respectively. I have made a timeline of sorts of what I think happened after the Last Battle up to what would be the First Contact. This will be an alternate Mass Effect Universe, as this new humanity will influence it greatly. Please take a look and tell me what you think, but I have three points before really delving into this creation of mine. 1) Cuendillar. By the Light and the Hope of my rebirth, this substance gives me headaches. It is supposed to be unbreakable and can even get stronger. I simply don't believe I can allow spaceships to be constructed of this because otherwise we end up with a huge overpower balance in favor of humans being in indestructible ships laughing at the puny races. Should I make it so that any energy passing in the vicinity of it can't be conducted (so electricity can't power things onboard)? Use its rarity? I am already planning to use element zero as a counter to the One Power with element zero weapons in mass effect like disruptor torpedoes have a negative effect on it. I was hoping to have power aligned metal ships with Cuendillar armor plating would get around this issue. They would still be vulnerable, especially to those torpedoes, but at the same time it wouldn't be overwhelming once the other races figure out its weakness. 2) Seanchan and the way they handle slavery in the future. I have it right now that the people can choose to enter lifetime contracts to become akin to so'jhin for households. There are no more of those da'covale where they basically are brainwashed automatons. Took two civil wars, one for the damane and one for the da'covale to get there, but it happened. However, I didn't want to throw the ability of someone common being able to order other nobles around which is why I kept so'jhin around in that way. Lots of different ways this could go. 3) White Tower vs Black Tower. Should the Black Tower make their own oaths? Say what you will about White Tower Aes Sedai, but those oaths do comfort people high up that their nations won't be ruled by long-lived witches. Black Tower right now has no constraints. I can't imagine males swearing the same oaths due to how their group was born to be soldiers first and foremost, but are there alternate oaths I should have them swear? Or do you think the nations would accept the Black Tower to be a buffer against the Seanchan? Joe wheel of time and mass effect timeline.odt
Over the years I've seen comments from people insinuating that Robert Jordan changed the Mazrim Taim storyline into something different because fans had deduced in their theories that he was actually Demandred (I was one of those many people supporting this theory back in the day, it was pretty convincing for a long time there). Obviously we now know the Taimandred theory not to be true, but is that because Jordan changed his plans due to the fans? Or are these rumors I've seen and heard just baseless rubbish?
