    Has this forum died a death

    Just wanted to ask if this forum has died a death. I used to come here relatively often, admittedly about a year ago. But still, for those times, thanks guys.

    I remember you. *hugs* Have some lettuce jelly!

    No. We still have about 3-10 posts a day, but that's a lot less than we had a few years ago. I remember getting 14 notifications every few days. Now, I get about 2 or 3 a day.

    We're not dead yet! But now that The Singing's out, there's a lot less speculation we can do,so there's less to talk about. Also, lots of us have much more schoolwork and less time for the forum these days . . .

    Still, this place remains pretty awesome.

    Yes, that description thar pretty much sums it up.

    Though it does make me wonder; why do we not continue to speculate? Although the Books have finished, the largest adventure that spans the most time is all that comes afterwards. I suppose people might think, 'isn't that what fanfiction's for'? But most people aren't willing to write a detailed fanfic when they could just as easily chatter. So I suppose I'm wondering why said chatter isn't going on. I mean, there are a lot of questions! What Schools do Maerad and Cadvan visit? Do they ever get married? What about the details of the relationship between Saliman and Hekibel? We only saw the beginnings of it even at the end of The Singing. So much to think about! Alison has spun us crazy fans a hell of a world. Wow... borderline rant. I'm scared of myself now. Byeee.

    May I suggest joining in the rest of the forum? You can discuss any fantasy author you want, and it's pretty active!

    To sum it up, yes. This forum has died a sad, sad death.


    There is simply not enough sustenance to keep its poor heart beating.

    I alternate between Edil-Amarandh, Narnia, Alagaesia, Agrabah, Bayern, Araulen, and the real world.

    The fact that so many people are replying here suggests it isn't quite dead.

    What, nobody's interested in my suggestions?

    PELLINORITES BAND TOGETHER! Hey, positive thinking: at least we're a bigger, more active fandom than the Old Kingdom books have, despite the fact that those are far more famous than the Books.

    Well, Cadvan and Maerad never got married because Alison said so, but the rest of those questions are valid points. I just can't think of anything to say about them right now. Sorry...I'm really tired...which is why I'm drinking black tea in the evening, despite knowing it'll make it even harder to sleep.

    Did she? I thought she said that "there was no record" that they married. Which, due to the nature of the portrayal of the Annaren scripts, may simply mean that there is no definitive information; they might or might not have. That was my reasoning at least.

    And there's so much more! Like NIM <3 It was said in the appendices that Maerad helped make a sort-of-peace between the Pilanel and Jussacks, which means she almost certainly met him again, and I'd love to see if their wary relationship ever evolved into friendship.

    You know maybe someone should make a thread for post-Singing speculation. *hint hint* If nobody else does, I shall!

    Oh. Yes. I do believe you are right. *failure as a Pellinorite*

    AH NIM! I loved Nim. In fact, I was almost shaken in my faith in MxC when I discovered the cuteness that is MxN. Nim was very very awesome, and I really hope they met again.

    Lol! I actually began the books from The Riddle, so I was literally shocked when there were moments of "Ardina like beauty" and "Unguarded Tenderness" by Cadvan, Maerad's teacher and moments of jealousy by Maerad. But I'm a pretty romantic person (that is, I like to read about some love in adventures, mysteries or fictions) and so I happily settled down with Caddy. I never thought about MN at all or even MD, and I am so surprised that 6 guys were after Maerad!!! (Dernhil, Cadvan, Honas, Dharin ~cmon, he did love Maerad a wee-bit romantically before knowing that she was his cousin ~, Arkan and Sharma)

    Anyway, I HELPED TO ADD SOME MORE LIFE TO THIS FORUM SO ITS NOT DEAD!

    Btw, isn't After The War RPG the thing for post-Singing things?

    After the War is a role-playing game about after The Singing. I don't think we actually have a thread for it.
