Kick ass moment #10

Monday, November 15, 2010

It's been a while since I posted one. While reading this passage in Towers of Midnight, I could only grin. I don't consider this as a spoiler, but if you haven't read the book yet and you prefer to read every nice moments in the book and not as an extract on the web, stop here.

I've read that some readers felt like this was too much over the top for Mat, but I disagree, that's the way Mat should have written that letter...


Your Royal Bloody Pain in My Back,

We're bloody waiting here to talk to you, and we're getting angry perturbed. (That means angry.) Thom says that you're a queen now, but I figure that changes nothing, sense you acted like a queen all the time anyway. Don't forget that I carried halled your pretty little backside out of a hole in Tear, but you acted like a queen then, so I guess I don't know why I'm surprised now that you act like one when you really are a queen.

So I'm thinking I should treat you like a bloody Queen and send you a bloody letter and all, speaking with high talk and getting your attention. I even used my ring as a signet, like it was paper proper. So here my formal salutation. So BLOODY STOP TURNING ME AWAY so we can talk,. I need your bellfounders. It's bloody important.


p.s. Salutation means greeting.

p.p.s. Don't mind the scratched out words and bad spellings. I was going to rewrite this letter, but Thom is laffing so hard at me that I want to be done.

p.p.s. Don't mind me calling your backside pretty. I hardly ever spent any time looking at it, as I've an awareness that you'd pull my eyes out if you saw me. Besides, I'm married now, so that all doesn't matter.

I remember reading this while I was waiting for a reading, Q & A and to get the book signed by Brandon and Harriet. Others I was talking to referred me to the page, and from the very first line it became progressively harder to read because I had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard. The thing that makes this letter great is that it's Mat through and through. He's the only character who hasn't changed from the first book (okay, he matured a little, but he still kept his essence)
