Default Hey Frenzy!

I have been thinking for a few months that Brandon needs to eliminate another Asmodean suspect (I promise, I'll get to something you care about in a bit). The tweets went something like so:

Quote:

With only 1.5 years to go, it would be nice to have it narrowed down one more time (this with knowledge that you'd probably have to ask permission, and that it would be the last time before the reveal). The new list should probably be: Lanfear, Graendal, Aviendha, Taim, Slayer, Moiraine, Sammael, Moridin. I don't think anyone seriously argues anyone else, though I could be wrong.

If it's not Aviendha you should take the easy out on her because that's @Theoryland 's theory. Mine too. Few else. RJ loved the small whimper of Tam's pet theories as they died. (promise not to read into you picking someone else.) it's not as if Aviendha is the only easy out on that list. If you pace it you'll have a 2000+ glued to your feed.

And then he tweeted this, not in response to me (so it shows up in everyone's feed):

Then I posted this:

And then Tam posted this:

So, uh...you might need to check your factions soon.

I would be so totally against ruling out any other suspect !!!! We have a short list as it is and it shouldn't get any smaller.

I want to find out who killed asmo, but not this way. The question will be answered in upcoming book or the next book.
That is fine by me.

psssh, everyone else would love to have it narrowed down. I haven't seen any objections so far from anyone, and most people seem excited about the possibility. He'll probably take the easy route and rule out someone that hardly anyone believes did it anyway - I'm thinking he'll go for Aviendha, Sammael, Moiraine, or Moridin.

I just think it would be a shame if he ruled out anyone. Even if I don't believe Aviendha, I can read the discussion and chuckle about it.
Those loony theories also make it fun.
Else it's mainly Slayer and Greandal as main candidates.

Besides, asking him to rule out one candidate is easy, try to form questions that help the speculation for one of the candidates.

The thing is: you don't know who he will rule out There is always a possibility he will rule out one of the main candidates.

Besides: do you really want him to rule out Aviendha?

Why would he do that, though? The question was asked in full knowledge that he probably wouldn't, because RJ didn't. He ruled out peripheral suspects. The fandom is starving for and Asmodean tidbit, and ruling out a peripheral suspect is a much safer move for Team Jordan than giving us another clue.

And if he rules out Aviendha, then I can go back to being apathetic.

If you ask a question, there is always the possibility that it will be answered

Oh well, lets just agree to disagree on this.

Okay. I'm aware that he can answer the way he wants. I just give him more credit for brains I guess. I also assumed he would be advised by Team Jordan on who to eliminate, though I suspect that he could make the choice and it would be a good choice. And yes, the loony theories are a part of it too, but he's only going to eliminate one of them. If I had to guess which one he'd go for, I'd say Moridin or Sammael, since one appears to have not been around at the time at all, and the other appears to have exonerated himself in POV. Few argue otherwise.

I bet he will finally eliminate poor Bela, since RJ refused to do so.

Is that list one you created for that post? RJ would have eliminated someone specifically NOT on your list, just because he was cruel that way. Don't know about Brandon.

If you actually read what I wrote, you'd see that RJ once eliminated Rand on a general question, and Fain from a list of suspects (9 of them, one of which was Fain). The list I suggested to Brandon had 8 names, at least 4 of which are peripheral suspects. Most people go for Graendal, Slayer, and Lanfear (despite the difficulties with the latter). I dunno about Taim's popularity as a suspect, but Sodas is hot for him, and while I tend to think Taim is a stretch, a good argument can be made for him. The old list had Shaidar Haran and Demandred and Semirhage on it, so I made a new list with those names. There are people that argue for Moridin and Moiraine at other boards more than here, and of course I like Aviendha and Tam does too.

Also, I don't think he would eliminate Moiraine just because she's the big mystery character for the next book, and Lanfear is connected to that. Sammael is easy because he's dead, and Moridin might be easy because he was assumed dead at the time. Aviendha would also be an easy one, if she didn't do it.

ETA: I should probably mention that there was one objection I saw from Dragonmount, but it was because he thought I had somehow botched our chances for asking him again after TOM. I can't see all of the comments that Brandon might be getting about it on Twitter, but I have seen two (by virtue of going to their pages to get the posts Brandon had responded to, concerning other things) and they were both excited about the possibility of having a suspect eliminated. I'm sure that if Brandon gets permission, he will act based on the feedback he's gotten.

You know, I don't quite know what to think about this. You are hard enough to follow without throwing a sense of humor into the mix. Now I'm wondering if all your crazy conspiracy theories are just a big joke.

It looks like most of the feedback Brandon has gotten has been encouraging the elimination:

Ha. But so many are begging for an elimination. And it has been years.

He's not going to discount one of the four suspects he believes make up four groups (although he hasn't said which four.) On the outskirts are Aviendha, Moiraine, Semirhage and some others. If they say anything, they'll likely pick one of those. And it would be fun to have a little bit more Asmodean! Cheer up little girl!
