Will he ride alone? by fee-absinthe Will he ride alone? by fee-absinthe
Lan told me once that Malkier lives so long as one man wears the hadori in pledge that he will fight the Shadow, so long as one woman wears the ki'sain in pledge that she will send her sons to fight the Shadow. I wear the ki'sain, Master Aldragoran. My husband wears the hadori. So do you. Will Lan Mandragoran ride to the Last Battle alone?"
el' Nynaeve ti Al'meara Mandragoran
Knife of Dreams - Chap. 20



Nyn has always been my favourite character, ever since book one. I hope I did here justice here D:


PD: The embroidery was a pain in the a** xD

They are my favourite couple from the series, how their relationship evolved and succeeded against everything... It was sad at moments, because they both carried such a heavy burden which stood between them, but in the end, they realize that all the love they have for their respective duties is only a compliment for their love for each other *_*

Amazing. She's so beautiful. I absolutely love Nynaeve. When I was younger I wanted to be like her. Luckily, I grew out of that...

She told me she had done that, it's so nice of her :heart:

I'm really glad you like it! About her full chest, I remembered some parts of the book where it was mentioned that after giving up on Two Rivers clothes Nynaeve adopted the usual Yellow Ajah's flamboyant style of clothing (thus the golden scrollwork and embroidery) and liked to show more flesh even when she told others not to xD And I always imagine her wearing low cut dresses and showing a good portion of chest :blush:

Really nice to see a softer portrait of Nyn. She's grown on me a lot over the series and she's one of my favs now. :)

Very well done. I think you did her justice. This softer side isn't my personal mental image of Nynaeve, but it is a part of her character, and I think you captured it.

The embroidery is very well done, too. It adds a lot to the piece. Little details like that often do.

Even if she is moody and has quite a temper, I've always thought she is really sweet an caring... In a rough way, perhaps, but sweet nonetheless xD

She's been my favourite from the start too, and we all know she's going to save the world in January. And probably have to bring Lan back from the dead, too, by the look of things, idiot man. Maybe Rand as well while she's at it!

This is wonderful. :)
