My first thought on these is WHOOOPEEE! The mention of Straaka's brother means we're likely to get closure on the Miryum/Straaka disappearance.
Dream in search of a sign...similar to her dreamtrailing to Obernewtyn to get the door's message?
Oh gosh! These are so tantalizing but at the same time, rather vague!
I mean, we sort of knew that the mystery surrounding Miryum wasn't done...all the same, I am already excited thinking of the drama of it all!
As to the other snippets, I always love a good Carmody dream sequence! :roll: And Iriny is back, eh?
I always expected Iriny to return but Staaka has a brother o_O That one got me thinking. Thanks so much to Isobelle for starting this, it's going to make the wait so much more fun if we have little bits to speculate on. ;D
I'm really intrigued by the mention of Straaka's brother too. I wonder what role he's going to play...
And what ultimatum is he giving Elf?!
And why she's encountering him in the first place? Is she in Sador? Or is he part of the mob of people who go on the ship to Red Land?
Or, is the dream tweet and brother tweet connected? Does she meet him in the dream?
gah! this is baaaad!! ).( i'm supposed to be studying and such- not thinking about theories! x_X
but, in saying that, w00t! :D
random thought: maybe Straaka's brother has got Miryum (after all, he would have had easy access to her if she went to go and burry Straaka's body somewhere near his family) and is issuing Elf with an ultimatum to do something/stop something? maybe he's one of the major people that are opposing the blacklands-eating bugs that Jakoby is so for that Jak made (i think it was Jak) and he and a few others have miryum there as a type of hostage to attempt to stop the bugs being released...? after all, they know that the misfits are all about preserving life and are against violence and killing and such... and they seemed pretty angry and somewhat desperate about keeping the traditions of letting the land heal by itself and not tampering with it any more than their ancestors had... maybe they're taking it to extremes??
anyways, that's just a random brain bleh onto the keyboard... maybe i should go and clean it now... all these thoughts are a bit messy :P
I'm only up to the keeping place so what are you talking about ?
Loza: We are speculating about what might possibly happen in The Sending. If you are only up to The Keeping Place then some of the things we say here might be a bit spoilerish as they relate a lot to The Stone Key.
In regards to Isobelle being on Twitter... I feel like a naughty child taking a sneak peek at their Christmas present when ever I read her updates. I love it but!
Helena: It sounds plausible but then you have to factor in the Sadorians code of honour. Unless they were extremely desperate, I don't think they would resort to Blackmail. Even then I'm not convinced. It's a much better theory than my half baked ideas though :P
I was sort of thinking Straaka's brother might have been demanding Straaka's body so that they *could* bury him, but it doesn't seem right at all. Or perhaps he's duty bound in some way (the Earthtemple's doing or something that is triggered by his brother being dead) that results in the ultimatum...
Have to keep in mind the spoiler about Straaka and Miryum being on the dreamtrails though. I dooubt if she can be in two places at once????
Though the brother demanding Straaka's body for burial sounds plausable.
random and extremely stupid/crazy thought: there are infiltrators at/in obernewtyn and rushton can only talk to elf in the safety of the greenthorn maze- as the greenthorn inhibits misfit Talents. :P
where in luds name did that come from? o_O i can see so many holes in that theory it's kinda funny- i swear i could walk through some of them :P meh
thanks for the tweet deb! [act]flails a bit[/act] XP
For some reason when I saw 'waylay' it made me think Rushton was trapping Elf in the maze for a snogfest . . . somehow I think subconsciously my brain was reading 'Rushton woos Elspeth in the greenthorn maze' :P
[act]has a sudden image of little rushies and elfs playing in a little pen with some green-eyed and brooding pigglets[/act]
elf: [act]suspicious look[/act] :|
fian: [act]pipes up[/act] one of these things is not like the others! one of these things just doesn't belong~~~ :D
oops... sorry about that... too much sugar :P
Waylays sounds kinda more like he's ambushing her. So maybe she's about to go on her quest, or is trying to avoid Rushton for whatever reason and he ambushes her in the maze and demands to know what's going on. Or maybe he found out about Swallow and Elspeth making out :P Swallow should be in this book more.
But I definitely love your interpretation of it Sionainn (L)
Bahaha you know what Sionainn? I had exactly the same thoughts - that Rushton stops her and pashes her... that's my romantic head wishing... <3 :)
I'll squee from here to the launch if Isobelle tweets about Swallow. Elf can have Rushton!
gah! nooo!!! i foresee a tear-filled departure on my part if that happens!! :"(
thanks min for posting these up! :D (i'm not on twitter- trying to limit my internet procrastinating abilities...)
So many things to think about!!! I'm intrigued by the one about Straaka's brother...!
Oh dear, we're all going to be so disappointed if that doesn't happen now, aren't we.
[sub]Note: NonRushton shippers not included[/sub] :P
[act]resists the urge to join Twitter[/act]
I think I have come to realise something......I have a hate/love relationship with tidbits of information. I read them eagerly, then wish I hadn't.........it's rather odd :P
But WOOOOOOOT for info :)
Was I the only one who thought Elspeth would barely stay at obernewtyn at the beginning of the book? I'm asuming the greenthorn maze is the maze at Obernewtyn so that means she stays there long enough for Rushton to return aswell. Well thats that theory out the window :|
The thing about elspeth entering a dream, is that her sleeping then dreaming or her entering someone else's dream?
I'm :O ing about Straaka's brother. We might understand what happened
[act]SQUEEL!![/act] Can't wait ;D
