Crossroads of Twilight Shortened (NSFW Language)

Yesterday I posted a summation for Eye of the World that was created by John Collin, one of the fans of the Wheel of Time that is a member of the facebook group I admin.

John has created a shortened version of Crossroads of Twilight (Book 10)for us.  Fun Fact: CoT covers about 22 days in the Wheel of Time Story Line.

For you reading pleasure I present:  Crossroads of Twilight shortened (NSFW language) by John Collins:

Ta’veren Ties Charity Fundraiser at Jordancon <3

Reposting this here for anyone who plans to be at JordanCon but doesn’t always follow the JordanCon group!
—————————-♥ ———————–
Love is in the air….and – dare I say it – the faint scent of #shenanigans!

JordanCon is bringing back the Ta’veren Ties charity fundraiser! Mat Cauthon is a perennial favorite as a cosplayable character and nowhere is that more apparent than at JordanCon. And if we’re all going to be gawking at them anyway, why not raise the stakes?

The rules are simple. The Queen will bestow her token on all Mat Cauthon cosplayers who are willing to participate in the game. Buy a pink ribbon (or more than one) and award it to any Mat Cauthon cosplayer who bears the Queen’s token. Then, just before the Saturday dance party, the Queen and her ladies-in-waiting will count all the ribbons each cosplayer has received. The Mat Cauthon with the most ribbons wins the prize (as well as the Queen’s heart). What is the prize? Well, for that you’ll just have to wait and see!

For more information and all the details on how you can help us raise more money for the Mayo Clinic — either as a cosplayer or by buying ribbons — check out the link below:
