So, I mentioned Christie Golden‘s book “The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm” a bit in a previous post.

In general, I liked it.  In fact, I liked it quite a lot.  Except for one thing…

Diamond Eyes

Okay, I stole the title from the latest Deftones album.  But it fits.  A little.  You’ll see.

I, of course, read Chawa’s post “Shattering Cairne“.  And I know how Pacheco feels about Cairne Bloodhoof‘s departure from the game.  And I also stumbled this post from Tam at Righteous Orbs.  (It’s a gooder!)

Essentially, most people seem kind of sad to see Cairne gone.  Or at least respected the character that Cairne was.

Now, if you read Christie Golden‘s book, “The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm“, you’d know exactly what happened to Cairne.  You may have even been like me, where you ended up liking Cairne even more after reading the book.  Also from the book, you would know the fate of Magni Bronzebeard – hence the title.  That said, similar to Cairne’s fate, the info could probably have been found elsewhere before the 4.0.3a patch.  Anyway, I even grew to like Magni a little bit after reading The Shattering.

But, I haven’t quite seen the same reaction to his fate that I’ve seen towards Cairne.  Admittedly, I haven’t looked that hard…but it has made me wonder: 

Has there been as much sorrow on the Alliance side? 

Are they as sad to see Magni go as much as we Horde were to see Cairne go?

Shattering Cairne

The Shattering is here.  (Patch 4.03a)

And I must share Jasra’s note ‘On Leavetaking’  because it’s captured what I’ve been thinking these last few days in Dalaran. I hope you have all said your own goodbyes there.

Sadly, there is one goodbye that I feel that I missed.

The Shattering is here.  And while I’m trapped at the office, I can’t help but wonder if Cairne will still be there….

No, no, no…

Torn asunder.

New Beginnings.

I’m not an author, nor do I aspire to be one.  But I wrote some fan-fiction.

Which is a tad ironic, as I don’t really read that much WoW (or any) fan-fic.  But I thought it would be fun to write out a little story about a new pet my hunter recently tamed.   All I wanted something a little more interesting than saying, “Hey, look what I have!” /screenshot

So I started writing.

And then I kept writing.

And then wrote some more.

So yeah, it’s a lot longer than I had intended and I’m not even sure if it’s any good.  I’m also not sure if I care.

But it’s after the cut if you wish to read it.

(Don’t worry, there is still a screenshot – and it even works into the “story”!)
