dreammaker-heartbreaker asked: OK I'M SORRY BUT I NEED TO RANT WITH SOMEONE. I don't think Pat would kill Auri because she's too special for that. I agree, Dena could kill Fela, but I bet Denna is gonna die too because if you notice Kvothe always talks about her in the past when he's not telling the story. If Devi or Sim die I'm just gonna, I don't even know what. I AM SCARED. But maybe university people are safe because Kvothe is gonna get kicked out right?

THERE’S PROBABLY TNOTW AND TWMF SPOILERS IN HERE, SO BEWARE IF YOU HAVEN’T READ ALL OF THEM YET.

AGAIN.

SPOILERS FOR THE NAME OF THE WIND AND THE WISE MAN’S FEAR. MAYBE. I DON’T REALLY KNOW WHAT CONSTITUTES A SPOILER AND WHAT DOESN’T. BUT MAYBE YOU SHOULDN’T READ ANY FARTHER IF YOU HAVEN’T READ ALL OF THE BOOKS.

JUST

WARNING

YOU.

[I always get nervous about spoiling things haha]

Yeah, I don’t think Auri will die, but I don’t think Denna is going to die, or if she does, I think we’ll be happy about it. I think Denna has something to do with the Chandrian, I just can’t see her being a good guy in the end. There’s something more to her, and I think Kvothe talks about her in the past when he’s not telling the story because he’s mourning who he thought she was, who she could have been.

I just have a really bad feeling that we won’t get out of this book with everyone we love alive. Obviously Kvothe survives in some capacity, but there’s no guarantees about Sim or Wil or Fela or Devi…or even Bast (FUCK IF BAST DIES I SWEAR TO GOD). Basically, if Kvothe feels the need to change his name and hide out and hide from his past, if he is so unhappy that he can barely do sympathy anymore, something bad has to happen, something big, something HUGE, and he probably will end up thinking that it’s all his fault (and he may even be right about that).

I don’t think everyone will die (or I hope not), but I think there will be quite a few tear-stained pages in this book.

UGHH P-ROTH GIVE US THE DOORS OF STONE RIGHT NOW. I’M HAVING SO MANY FEELINGS.

URGHHH.

I keep imagining Aliens landing on my garage and breaking my bedroom window to suck out my brains, so I’m going to distract myself with ridiculous literary fantasies.

Mostly just what would happen if my favorite character’s all were in one story at once, or if they got swapped or whatever.

I guess what started this off is watching way too much LOTR (finished all 3 movies 2 days ago, then immediately started rewatching them with the cast commentary on because I am a gold-medal Olympic nerd) and then spending some quality time with the Patrick Rothfuss and John Dies at the End tags on tumblr.

So what would happen if Kvothe (The Name of the Wind) got dropped into the Fellowship? My guess is he would basically be Gandalf mixed with Aragorn, and would just kick everyone’s ass and then have sex with Galadriel because that’s just what he does. In fact, I would totally ship Galadriel and Kvothe over Kvenna. Kvothe is way better than Denna. Denna is a bag of useless waste, and their lack of communication is infuriating. And she’s leading him on, clearly, and will probably be the cause of his downfall. But we all know how I feel on that subject.

Basically, Kvothe to LOTR isn’t really a huge shift. He’d be able to figure that out pretty quick, and he’d probably end up being biffles with Aragorn. Either that or they’d be so similar that he’d end up getting on Aragorn’s bad side, in which case he can just go open an inn in the Shire and/or go hang out with Tom Bombadil. He’d get along great with hobbits.

So then my brain made the rather startling leap from JDatE to LOTR. What if John was dropped into the Fellowship?

I just picture him trying to destroy the ring at Elrond’s meeting with his chair, the way Gimli does it, and just shouting one of his choice one-liners. The whole story would just be John and his chair saving the day.

Balrog gonna get Gandalf? “Have a seat, bitch!”

Uruk-hai snatchin’ your hobbits up? “You’ve been sentenced to get the chair, motherfucker!”

Nazgul shenanigans? “Anybody else want to donate blood to chair-ity?”

I mean, just picture John and his chair at the battle for Helm’s Deep!

This mash-up needs to happen. Soy Sauce + Middle Earth needs to happen.

GET ON THIS PETER JACKSON. GET ON THIS RIGHT NOW. IT’S NOT LIKE YOU’RE BUSY WITH ANOTHER HUGE EPIC MULTI-PART MOVIE THAT REQUIRES AN ENTIRE ARMY OF PEOPLE TO ACCOMPLISH OR ANYTHING.

Rereading The Wise Man’s Fear.

I ship Kvothe with literally every single other person in this book but Denna. Kvothe is a thousand times better than Denna. Denna probably isn’t even her real name. Her real name is probably Debbie. Stupid Debbie.

She’s all showin up to the Eolian with some douchey Lord guy who’s all judgin’ Kvothe for playing the Lute, and Debbie is all “tralala I’m a pretty girl give me money and take me out to dinner because I’m pretty and an orphan.”

And then Kvothe’s all SYSTEM ERROR. DO NOT UNDERSTAND WOMEN. And he just continues to be charming and adorable to everyone and everyone’s falling all over him and he’s just like ZOMG DEBBIE I LOVE YOU except he won’t say anything because he doesn’t want to push her away and ruin their friendship which is STUPID. AS. BALLS.

He needs to go be with Devi. Or Fela. But Sim’s got Fela. So really he just needs to get with Devi and they can go on dastardly adventures together and then maybe it would be Kvothe the Kingkiller and Devi the…I don’t know, maybe Devi the Devious or something.

OR he can help Auri get better (if possible…maybe Elodin can help) and they can be together because Auri is adorable.

OR he can realize that he’s gay for Bast. I could get behind that ship.

Or you know, there’s always Felurian. Kvothe’s like what, 16? 17? Either way, I don’t think many teenagers can say that someone literally wanted to fuck them to death.

You know honestly I would ship Kvothe being gay for Ambrose over him being with Debbie.

Or he could get with Lady Lackless. Awww yeah, doin’ his aunt.

Seriously. Debbie is just infuriating. I understand that she’s an orphan and it’s really hard for her to survive without becoming a prostitute so she dates all these guys, but I’m sure there’s something she could do.

OOP. KVOTHE AND VASHET. THAT WOULD BE BADASS TOO.

Look. Look at all these ships. I have an entire armada of ships that are not Debbie. The Debbie ship is like a canoe. It’s like that boat in that commercial where the guy spray paints a screen door with this foam sealer stuff and then makes a boat with it. Or the boat that the Mythbusters made entirely out of duct tape.

DEBBIE YOU ARE A BOAT MADE OF DUCT TAPE. YOU FLOAT FOR AWHILE AND THEN EVENTUALLY YOU WILL SINK BECAUSE YOU ARE MADE OF SMELLY ALL-PURPOSE SILVER TAPE.

I love how none of the ships on the Patrick Rothfuss tag are Kvothe/Denna.

Most of them are Kvothe/Bast, which I could for sure see…although I think I ship Kvothe/Vashet more.

Also I’m still a big fan of Kvothe/Fela (although her and Sim are ADORBS).

I just love Fela.

OR DEVI OH MY GOD HOW COULD I FORGET THAT.

KVOTHE AND DEVI FOREVER.

I think that’s my main ship.

SHIPS FOREVER

Ever since I’ve started tracking the Patrick Rothfuss tag, there have been a lot more TNotW and TWF posts, which is AWESOME.

I hope the Name of the Wind community on here keeps growing, because it’s such a fabulous book, and it makes me so happy to hear that more and more people are reading it.

Seriously you guys, that book should be shelved next to LOTR and Harry Potter and The Golden Compass and A Song of Fire and Ice (which I haven’t read but I know a lot of you have). It takes Fantasy writing and reworks it, giving us what we’ve come to know and love about classic fantasy but in an unconventional package. It’s a fascinating excursion into the world of how rumors start, how rumors turn into legends, and how legends measure up to reality.

It’s brilliant in every single way, and I love it.

I think I creep the Patrick Rothfuss tag too much.

I’m tracking it, and I get so excited whenever I see a little 1 pop up, and then I go creep whoever posted in the tag and start following them and fangirl all over everything about The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear.

Whatevs. No regrets.

“Hello, ladies, look at your book, now back to mine. Sadly, you’re not reading The Name of the Wind. But if you stopped reading trashy romance books and inaccurate history novels, you could be. Look down; back up, where are you? You’re in Tarbean with the book your book could be like. What’s that in your hands, back to me, I have it, it’s a lute and two tickets to the Eolian. Look down, the lute is now silver talents. Anything is possible when your book is The Name of the Wind and not rubbish.
I’m on a Draccus.” Found in ‘Pat Rothfuss’s Legion of Fanatical Minions: The Global Group’ on facebook. (via cheesymarmite)

ivegotabigbigbigheartbeatyaa replied to your post: I’m debating starting a Kingkiller Chronicles fan blog.
When does the third come out? I’m having withdrawals. Also how frustrating is the kvothe/Denna relationship? Gahhh

First of all: WHY ARE MACS SO CONFUSING. I feel like a tardbag. It took me like 20 minutes to copy and paste this. NURR SO CONFUSED.
anyway!

 
As far as I’m aware, Patrick Rothfuss hasn’t announced anything about the 3rd book other than the title, which is apparently The Doors of Stone. Judging by the way Mr. Rothfuss wrote the other two books, we have a few years to wait, which is a bummer. But it will be so worth the wait once it comes out!

 
and OH MY GOD I KNOW. All during The Wise Man’s Fear I was like mayyybeee things with Denna will move forward! Wait for it…waaaaiiiiittttt foorrrrr iiittttt…OH COME ON WHAT THE HELL.


Although part of me wants Kvothe to be with either Fela or Devi…I just want Kvothe to be with someone who isn’t emotionally retarded, and Denna is just so endlessly frustrating. Although I absolutely LOVE Fela and Sim. They satisfied my romance quota for The Wise Man’s Fear for the most part, lol.

Reblog if you are a fan of the Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss.

sonofatimelord:

Seriously, there is none of this on my dash. That is an absolute travesty. If you reblog it, i will follow.

I was literally just searching the NOTW tag looking for people to follow, haha.

If you haven’t read the first two books, DO SO NOW. I promise, you won’t regret it….well, not until you finish the 2nd book and then realize that the 3rd book isn’t coming out for awhile.
