Have I ever been more wrong about predictions? HAS THIS EVER HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD? Oh my god.
Look, I DIDN’T KNOW. I HAD NO CLUES AS TO WHAT MELTING STONES WAS ABOUT. DON’T JUDGE ME.
- Let’s start with some easy shit. All four characters will be back in Emelan at the opening of the book. OH MY GOD, NO.
- I predict that all four of them have a single house and it’s the one Daja bought. WHY HAVE I DONE THIS.
- However, Sandry spends a lot of time with Duke Vedris. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.
- We’ll have a reference to The Will of the Empress within the first chapter. END ME NOW.
- We’ll get scenes at Discipline! I HAVE NEVER STRUCK OUT SO FANTASTICALLY IN MY WHOLE LIFE.
- Rosethorn and Lark will at one point, either separately or together, talk about their relationship with each other. STOP. IT.
- Daja will not find anyone to date in this book. WELL, TECHNICALLY, THIS IS TRUE, BUT ONLY BY VIRTUE OF LUCK.
- But Briar will. I MISS BRIAR A LOT.
- I predict that this book centers around Evvy, given that she has stone magic. She’s now in Winding Circle, and there’s a ~mystery.~ SO CLOSE TO A PERFECT PREDICTION, AND THEN HORRIBLY, HORRIBLY WRONG.
- I think that Briar and Rosethorn will be the other primary characters. I STILL MISS BRIAR A LOT.
- At one point, I will look at the camera and tell you all how fucked up you are. This doesn’t count. It just doesn’t.
- Stones that melt? I DON’T FUCKING KNOW. I literally have not known less in my whole life.
My god, what have I done? So, now I’m going into the final Emelan book, and I have, once again, been given zero clues as to what it’s about. How badly will I fare this time?
Predictions for Battle Magic
- All right, from the title, I’m guessing that the four foster-siblings will be involved in a war of some sort.
- It will not happen in Summersea or Winding Circle.
- Tris will have flashbacks to the pirate attack in Winding Circle.
- Briar, Rosethorn, and Evvy will have flashbacks to their time in Yanjing.
- I am already regretting this because what if it isn’t about any of this?
- What if other characters aren’t even in this book like the last one?
- Like, what if Rosethorn and Evvy aren’t in it because they were in all of Melting Stones?
- I want to know more about Rosethorn and Lark, so can that be in this book?
- What if my predictions aren’t predictions but just me begging for certain things to be in Battle Magic?
- I’d be cool with Daja dating someone new.
- I’d love more of Frostpine’s backstory.
- I’d also be interested to see if there are any new or returning students at Discipline.
- I am a failure at these, and I’m okay with that.
Hey, IT’S THE BEST I CAN DO.
