Hello! This is Haley, from the Inheritance Cycle Blog. I saw your post in response to the question about the next Rider. While I don't completely agree with you about his character (I feel that Arya is more of a Mary Sue than Roran), I do agree that he should not become the next Rider. I included him in the response because many people consider him when debating about who the next Rider will be. Hope that clears things up!
Mmmm. I still think that Roran is the worse character (admittedly out of a bad lot) but I see where you’re coming from. Arya’s the obvious choice.
As for the girl that appeared in Brisingr, I doubt she’ll be the next rider, simply because she hasn’t appeared except for one chapter. I think the entire fandom will feel royally ripped off if an unknown becomes someone so important. Not to mention the Arygon fangirls of which I’m trying not to include myself.
BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD! Once you have been given this award, you are supposed to paste it in the ask of 8 women who deserve it. If you break the chain nothing will happen, but… it’s always sweet to know that someone thinks you’re beautiful inside… and out.
I’m really just talking about people from tumblr who I’ve never met in real life.
So this happens a lot:
“I have a friend who…is from Canada.”
“I have a friend who…actually things I’m funny.”
Actually, I say, ‘I follow this person on tumblr and she…’ I usually mean friend. (Or husband, in Mariah’s case.)
I know this girl who does this… Oh yeah, I met her at this site place… Fine, mom! I know her off the internet… Yes, they do count… No, it’s not a pedo… not everyone lies… Seriously I probably know more about her life than her mom… Fine, I’ll go call one of my *real* friends…
Comes up to me in my last-year-Tesco-Bargain sandal/flip-flop and asks my shoe size. Turns out her sister gave her a pair of (unused) Birkenstock sandal/flip-flop thingies that don’t fit her. A year or two ago in Italy, these were the shoes everyone was wearing, and I wanted them so bad. So now I’m just sitting chilling in my ‘stocks, like wut. These are not cheap things just to be giving away.
