Mat and Tylin better be left alone and unrushed. Those 2 made bk 7 my 2nd fav and I can't wait to see the cougar hunt onscreen.

Sorry, but I think that will be severely edited or totally cut. As it should. No still means no, even if it's "only" a man saying it.

Just because he got a little bit Stockholm at the end still doesn't make it right. He should have used all that martial (not marital, note) prowess he supposedly had and casually disarmed and restrained her, enough for her to realise she was totally at his mercy and asked her if she still thought it was funny.

Unless the producers want to make this all HBO-y?

EDIT:
Following on that last sentence, I understand RJ did that as part of the sexes role-reversal thing he had going on with the series, but the only way it could work IMHO is if it were depicted straight out - no prevaricating - as rape.

Can't believe me Tanner is saying this but I'd be upset if it got the HBO titty treatment just to show titties and I like seeing titties but sex in bk world isn't elaborated on just understood that it happens often. I'd hate to see that changed.

We ve got very dif def of rape. That wasn't. That was an old fashioned game of playing hard to get and I loved it.

heh, been reading the reddit:

https://www.reddit.c..._tv_adaptation/

@BK
I have shamelessly lifted this from the "wasn't it rape?" reddit at

https://www.reddit.c...5g/rape_in_wot/
A Crown of Swords, Chapter 28, Bread and Cheese
"Of course youíre not a cat," Tylin said. "Youíre a succulent little duckling, is what you are."
Mat gave a start and stared. Duckling? And a little duckling, at that! The woman stood well short of his shoulder. Indignation or no indignation, he managed an elegant bow anyway. She was the Queen; he had to remember that. "Majesty, thank you for these wonderful apartments. Iíd love to talk with you, but I have to go out and -"
Smiling, she advanced across the red-and-green floor tiles, layered blue and white silk petticoats swishing, large dark eyes fixed on him. He had no desire at all to look at the marriage knife nestled in her generous cleavage. Or the larger, gem-studded dagger thrust behind an equally gem-studded belt. He backed away.
"Majesty, I have an important -"
She started humming. He recognized the tune; he had hummed it to a few girls lately. He was wise enough not to try actually singing with his voice, and besides, the words they used in Ebou Dar would have singed his ears. Around here, they called it "I Will Steal Your Breath with Kisses."
Laughing nervously, he tried to put a lapis-inlaid table between them, but she somehow got around it first without seeming to increase her speed. "Majesty, I -"
She laid a hand flat on his chest, back-heeled him into a high-backed chair, and plumped herself down on his lap. Between her and the chair arms, he was trapped. Oh, he could have picked her up and set her on her feet quite easily. Except that she did have that bloody big dagger in her belt, and he doubted his manhandling her would be as acceptable to her as her manhandling him seemed to be. This was Ebou Dar, after all, where a woman killing a man was justified until proven otherwise. He could have picked her up easily, except...
He had seen fishmongers in the city selling peculiar creatures called squid and octopus - Ebou Dari actually ate the things! - but they had nothing on Tylin. The woman possessed ten hands. He thrashed about, vainly trying to fend her off, and she laughed softly. Between kisses, he breathlessly protested that someone might walk in, and she just chuckled. He babbled his respect for her crown, and she chortled. He claimed betrothal to a girl back home who held his heart in her hands. She really laughed at that.
"What she does not know cannot harm her," she murmured, her twenty hands not slowing for an instant.
Someone knocked at the door.
and again
A Crown of Swords, Chapter 28, Festival of Birds
It was too much. The woman hounded him, tried to starve him; now she locked them in together like... like he did not know what. Lambkin! Those bloody dice were bouncing around in his skull. Besides, he had important business to see to. The dice had never had anything to do with finding something, but... He reached her in two long strides, seized her arm, and began fumbling in her belt for the keys. "I donít have bloody time for -" His breath froze as the sharp point of her dagger beneath his chin shut his mouth and drove him right up onto his toes.
"Remove your hand," she said coldly. He managed to look down his nose at her face. She was not smiling now. He let go of her arm carefully. She did not lessen the pressure of her blade, though. She shook her head. "Tsk, tsk. I do try to make allowances for you being an outlander, gosling, but since you wish to play roughly... Hands at your sides. Move." The knifepoint gave a direction. He shuffled backward on tiptoe rather than have his neck sliced.
"What are you going to do?" he mumbled through his teeth. A stretched neck put a strain in his voice. A stretched neck among other things. "Well?" He could try grabbing her wrist; he was quick with his hands. "What are you going to do?" Quick enough, with the knife already at his throat? That was the question. That, and the one he asked her. If she intended to kill him, a shove of her wrist right there would drive the dagger straight up into his brain. "Will you answer me!" That was not panic in his voice. He was not in a panic. "Majesty? Tylin?" Well, maybe he was in a bit of a panic, to use her name. You could call any woman in Ebou Dar "duckling" or "pudding" all day, and she would smile, but use her name before she said you could, and you found a hotter reception than you would for goosing a strange woman on the street anywhere else. A few kisses exchanged were never enough for permission, either.
Tylin did not answer, only kept him tiptoeing backward, until suddenly his shoulders bumped against something that stopped him. With that flaming dagger never easing a hair, he could not move his head, but eyes that had been focused on her face darted. They were in the bedchamber, a flower-carved red bedpost hard between his shoulder blades. Why would she bring him...? His face was suddenly as crimson as the bedpost. No. She could not mean to... It was not decent! It was not possible!
"You canít do this to me," he mumbled at her, and if his voice was a touch breathy and shrill, he surely had cause.
"Watch and learn, my kitten," Tylin said, and drew her marriage knife.

Again, think of this in reverse and the scene becomes very very disturbing

And as we have been told repeatedly these days, playing "hard to get" should be basically interpreted as "No".

I tend to doubt we ll see a thing about it. I'm sure we ll get the Dragon opener and then next they could possibly show the scene from NS of Rand being born inside the Tower where Keeper says so then dies in front of Mor & S, then cut to present in Edmond F. I think that would prob be the extent of coverage they may bother with.... If even that.

Terez's knowledge of WoT is exceptional. If they needed a creative consultant, they've already got their choice right there :)

However, I do think Far Madding is gone from the TV show. There's no way they'd devote the resources needed to portraying it that late in the game. The Hall of the Counsels and the Guardian would be CGI anyway (probably) but they'd have to look at the need for going to that location, inventing new stuff and casting new characters (the cast list of the TV show is going to be miniscule compared to the cast list in the books) when they can just cut the whole thing and have Rand going straight to the Cleansing.
It's a nice idea to try to include it, but that's what we thought about Dorne in GoT and that did not work out well :p

The Hall of the Counsels was not so intricately described that it would be difficult to set. They'd basically need one CGI shot of the city, aerial view, as the women enter, but other than that I don't see what the big budget deal is. As they said, the Guardian isn't much to look at. It's not some big fancy ter'angreal. As for casting, the only important one is the First Counsel, Aleis Barsalla. The others are basically extras, even in the book.

PS: I really don't think Dorne is a good comparison. Cutting Dorne would be like cutting Cairhien. The problem with Dorne is not that they didn't cut it, but that they screwed it up so badly. Dorne is a major plotline in the books; Far Madding is just a one-stop with no major long-term casting considerations. It could probably be filmed in a sort of cupola building the likes of which can be found in basically every town on earth. Or it could be filmed on set. There's no reason to cut it and it adds a lot of depth to the world, to Rand's character, and to Cadsuane's and Verin's characters in particular, especially when all the narrative padding is removed and only the best bits remain.

It was definitely rape, though RJ tried his best to pretend it wasn't. That doesn't mean it should be cut, nor does it mean that it has to be spelled out in the show. It's a conversation-starter, and it was always intended to be. I hope to do a panel on this at JordanCon some time or another.

I had actually suggested that panel to the former Director already before she announced she was stepping down. It was the second panel I had suggested to her; she 'preliminarily' approved another one I suggested, about how Confederate lore influenced RJ's approach to slavery. When she didn't write me back about the Tylin panel, I figured I was annoying her.

I'd save it as a stand-alone TV movie (like BSG's Razor). If you cast a relatively big name as Moiraine, you're going to have to ask her to sit out 3-4 seasons and then come back for the last 7-8 episodes of the show. That's a bit of an ask. Giving her her own TV movie halfway down that period which focuses almost entirely on her is a good move for keeping your cast happy.

I don't even know what 'the job' is, honestly. This seems somewhere between writer and producer. And don't you need a resume for that? I think for the moment I'll concentrate on applying for the Director job that just opened for the World of the Wheel track at JordanCon. :thumbsup:

Completely serious, there's most likely a space for you at a writer's table or show adaptation table. Werthead got something going for ASOIAF, and he initially brought less to the table than you do right now.

I have been offhandedly very praising of you and your interests (esp WoT) for years. It's because you both have the knowledge and the context awareness to fit it into the right places.

I appreciate your faith, but I have always been very nervous about putting myself forward for jobs like this. Even the Wheel track position at the con. I have probably never in my life been more qualified for a job than this one; their job description seems like an invitation for me, specifically, to apply; in a lot of ways, the application process seems like a formality. But I'm still nervous about applying for it, and terrified that they'll pick someone else, despite the fact that I would have been okay with just doing what I have been doing at the con in future years. I took over the trivia panels this year; they are the most work-intensive panels on the track, and before this year they were always run by the track director. I suspect that this was a test to see whether I could handle running this track, and I'm still terrified, despite overwhelmingly positive feedback on trivia and my other panels.



I also think you should throw your hat in the ring. Don't make this something you may regret not trying for. Getting rejected would suck, but going through life thinking "what if" or "I should have" would be harder to let go of. If I remember correctly, you have a casual relationship with Harriet. Maybe contact her and ask if there is anything you can do to help with the development of the show, or if she has any advice for you?

I'd say that just go for it Terez. I'm a late comer to the WOT fandom (Only read them in spring 2014) so I never really participated in any discussions of it on Dragonmount for example, but I knew your name regardless of that long before I found you on this forum too (You're famous in the WOT fandom, so much so that even one who has never really been a part of it knows your name :thumbsup:). You definitely are qualified for doing those plans of what to keep and what to cut etc. I liked your season plan too. Slightly enlarge the Rand v Sammael fight and it'll make a good ending for a season and the cleansing is really epic as it is. The Seanchan wars would also make good mid season episodes etc.

Again, I appreciate the support. :thumbsup: But funny story: of all the major WoT sites, tarvalon.net is the only one I've never been active on for any length of time. But there are a LOT of Tar Valon people who come to JordanCon every year, so I'm getting to know them, especially their higher-ups who are active at the con. And I promise you, most of these people don't have a goddamn clue who Terez is. Not that I have a problem with that. Like, even the people who go to the con every year, I only know a dozen or so by name, maybe as many as 20. Hell, some of them, I probably know from the con and don't even know that they're Tar Valon people.

Anyway, I just joined their forum, and the people seem cool enough, but I don't think any of the people who have welcomed me in my welcome thread have any idea who I am. Only one of them was at the con and she says she doesn't remember me. It's definitely a different kind of forum than Theoryland or Dragonmount or Wotmania, which would be why I never posted there. It wasn't the kind of place you went if you were in the mood to have a flamewar about Lews Therin. (That's hyperbole; I hate flamewars, but that subject often inspired them.) They seem very insulated from the rest of the online fandom.

I was talking to WoT fans in London when I did my panel with Harriet and Maria, and they also knew who Terez was :thumbsup: A few Dragonmount veterans were there I think. But I think all of the WoT sites have either died off completely (like Wotmania/RAFO did) or have become so inactive they might as well nearly be dead (Dragonmount). The TV show might, at least, reinvigorate the fandom. Or pull a GoT and flood it with newcomers. We'll have to see.

At first I thought you meant Harriet and Maria. I don't know Harriet very well, but she made a point to address me by name at this con. I think she does that with everyone, though, if she can in fact remember their name. Maria is a different story; she smokes so she knows all the con smokers very well. I still have to go outside to vape so that hasn't changed even though I quit. I first met her at JordanCon 2010 and when I tried to introduce myself, she was like "I know who you are..." This year, someone tried to introduce us, and she said, "I know Terez. She's been to my house!" (This is true. But I tried to invite myself again at some point, probably when I was in Charleston to see the notes, and that didn't fly, lol.)

A little off the topic of WoT coming to tv but the fact that it is likely seems to have re-inspired me. I dabble in woodworking and have made at least one replica from wood of the dagger from Shadar Logoth (actually 65% done with my 3rd of these) and Mat Cauthon's ashandarei. Since finishing AMoL, I haven't revisited these projects but WoT coming to the small or large screen would make it "relevant" again, without a doubt. When I made the ashandarei several years back, I wanted to do the inscription down the haft in the Old Tongue, as its supposed to be, but to my knowledge its never written out in the books in the Old Tongue. (I'm fairly sure of this as I made note of every description of the ashandarei I could find in the books, for reference.) I did some searching online as well but never found anything definitive. So I did the inscription carving in English. I'm flirting with the idea of making a second one (the 1st I gifted to my sister-in-law, the only person I've been able to turn on to the series) now that this news has brought WoT back to the forefront of my mind and I would really like to be able to do the inscription in the Old Tongue. Does anyone know if that specific translation is out there anywhere? I found an Old Tongue dictionary online today but haven't broken down and searched for each individual word in the quote yet. They may not all be in this dictionary. The ashandarei quote wasn't one of the ones shown by itself, either. Anyone have an idea where else to search? Thanks!

This is in the WoT Companion which was released last November. It has a basic Old Tongue dictionary and a collection of phrases. This never appeared in the books:

Ghiro feal dae'vin lormae; ghiro o'vin gemarisae
Nardes vasen'cierto ain; sind vyen loviyagae
Devoriska nolvae. Al ciyat dalae.

Literal translation:

Thus our treaty is written; thus agreement is made
Thought the arrow-of-time is; never fade memories
What was asked is given. The price is paid.

PS: The Companion also has Old Tongue script, if you want to be proper about it.

Also, be aware that you probably wouldn't be able to sell anything like this; the recent TV deal included merchandising and even Ta'veren Tees got screwed out of their exclusive licensing rights.

This is in the WoT Companion which was released last November. It has a basic Old Tongue dictionary and a collection of phrases. This never appeared in the books:

Ghiro feal dae'vin lormae; ghiro o'vin gemarisae
Nardes vasen'cierto ain; sind vyen loviyagae
Devoriska nolvae. Al ciyat dalae.

Literal translation:

Thus our treaty is written; thus agreement is made
Thought the arrow-of-time is; never fade memories
What was asked is given. The price is paid.

PS: The Companion also has Old Tongue script, if you want to be proper about it.

Also, be aware that you probably wouldn't be able to sell anything like this; the recent TV deal included merchandising and even Ta'veren Tees got screwed out of their exclusive licensing rights.


Thanks Terez! I thought you might be the one with the answer, based on your level of fandom. Is the companion you referenced the "encyclopedia" I kept hearing/reading about? If so, I somehow missed that it was actually released. I'll have to get it.

I've run across examples of the script a few times but was more focused on the full translation.

I was aware that I wouldn't be able to sell what I make (due to copyright issues) without being granted an "official" WoT artist status. (I will admit to daydreaming about that possibility.) I wasn't aware that the new tv deal will cover all merchandising. So are all former/current official WoT artists out of luck, as well now?
