I’m busy writing stuff and otherwise being awesome.
So instead of a great wordy blog you get a link to an article on Tor.com where they talk about assembling an avengers-style team out of fantasy characters. I was flattered to see that Kvothe got a spot on the team. That’s some rarified air he’s breathing up there with LOTR, Song of Ice and Fire, and the Princess Bride.
Quite aside from the obvious observation that Kvothe would have to be played by Robert Downy Jr. This list raises some interesting questions.
More to the point, a list like that is fanfic waiting to happen. And I personally wonder who Kvothe would:
1. Buddy up with.
2. End up Fighting in a Dark Knight Returns style grudge match.
(Yeah. Yeah. I know. That’s DC. Shut up.)
3. Rub the wrong way.
4. Rub the right way. (If you know what I mean.)
Feel free to speculate away in the comments below. I know I’m going to….
