Mark Predicts ‘Battle Magic’

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.

  1. 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. 
  2. I predict that all four of them have a single house and it’s the one Daja bought. WHY HAVE I DONE THIS.
  3. However, Sandry spends a lot of time with Duke Vedris. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.
  4. We’ll have a reference to The Will of the Empress within the first chapter. END ME NOW.
  5. We’ll get scenes at Discipline! I HAVE NEVER STRUCK OUT SO FANTASTICALLY IN MY WHOLE LIFE.
  6. Rosethorn and Lark will at one point, either separately or together, talk about their relationship with each other. STOP. IT. 
  7. Daja will not find anyone to date in this book. WELL, TECHNICALLY, THIS IS TRUE, BUT ONLY BY VIRTUE OF LUCK.
  8. But Briar willI MISS BRIAR A LOT. 
  9. 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.
  10. I think that Briar and Rosethorn will be the other primary characters. I STILL MISS BRIAR A LOT.
  11. 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. 
  12. 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

  1. All right, from the title, I’m guessing that the four foster-siblings will be involved in a war of some sort.
  2. It will not happen in Summersea or Winding Circle.
  3. Tris will have flashbacks to the pirate attack in Winding Circle.
  4. Briar, Rosethorn, and Evvy will have flashbacks to their time in Yanjing.
  5. I am already regretting this because what if it isn’t about any of this?
  6. What if other characters aren’t even in this book like the last one?
  7. Like, what if Rosethorn and Evvy aren’t in it because they were in all of Melting Stones?
  8. I want to know more about Rosethorn and Lark, so can that be in this book?
  9. What if my predictions aren’t predictions but just me begging for certain things to be in Battle Magic?
  10. I’d be cool with Daja dating someone new.
  11. I’d love more of Frostpine’s backstory.
  12. I’d also be interested to see if there are any new or returning students at Discipline.
  13. I am a failure at these, and I’m okay with that.

Hey, IT’S THE BEST I CAN DO.
