I have just been selected as one of the Memory Keepers for the AMoL book tour…
I will give you more info ASAP, but I will be accepting ‘questions’ aka if there’s anything you Tumblrites want me to ask Mr. Sanderson or Ms. McDougal, I will choose the best questions offered and gladly post their answers here if I’m able.
*cries at the fact I have exams and so couldn’t apply*
Wheel of Time 30 Day Challenge- Day 5 Which character in the series do you most identify with?
Hmmmm…. this is hard. I hate questions like this.
Well obviously Rand, I mean, I was born to like save the world, and go mad doing it.
Ok, not really.
I don’t think I can identify with the three ta’veren really. Hmmm…. Uhhhh…..
I’m drawing a blank here guys.
Perhaps Loial. He likes reading I like reading. He doesn’t rush decisions, and neither do I. There we go. I AM LOIAL.
Wheel of Time 30 Day Challenge: Day 4: Who are your favourite & least favourite characters in the series?
Now this is har, I love and hate all of them in equal measure.
Actually, that’s not quite true
Least Favourite: Tuon. Slave-Driving, Hypocritical, frustratingly blinded.
Favourite? Gee I don’t know. As of the end of ToM it’s Egwene and Perrin. But I don’t like emo-Perrin in the mid-range books, and Egwene seems to still underestimate men.
I stoppped liking Rand after Moiraine. That said, in ToM he wasn’t too bad.
Actually, I think Loial. Always so cute and serious. Especially after the manor-house attack. >:D
Wheel of Time 30 day challenge: Day 2 How many times have you read through the series? If you’ve not finished it, which book are you on?
I’ve read the entire series once.
I’ve started one re-read, but got ‘stuck’ around book 10.
I restarted, this time with audiobooks, and am currently on book 3.
I’ve re-read TGS + TOM twice each.
Wheel of Time 30 Day challenge, Day 1: How did you get into the series? For how long have you been reading them?
Let’s think. I was definitely reading it in second year of sixth form, so about 3 years ago.
It was probably Easter. I bought book 1: The Eye of The World and read that. Next day I went back out and got books 2 through 5, and ordered the rest (up to book 11 at the time) from Amazon. Then I marathoned them. I don’t think I was probably that sociable at that particular point in my life.
If I remember correctly, I then immediately started re-reading, and found Dragonmount / Theoryland.
And that is how it began.
Why is well written fan-fiction so hard to come by?
Original fanfiction is welcome, but I would like it to include a well-thought-out magic system.
Fanfiction set in the following universes is also good.
- Wheel of Time
- Any Trudi Canavan stuff
- His Dark Materials
- Sword of Truth
- Any Brandon Sanderson stuff
- Harry Potter
- Card Captor Sakura
- Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
- Death Note
Ending with a question so you can submit easily?
Oh. My. Goodness.
Just finished Gathering Storm…
IT WAS AMAZING.
Totally my reaction the first time too.
