What if disaster had struck in The Eye of the World? One possibility...
Disclaimer: As everyone well knows, The Wheel of Time setting and its characters belong to Robert Jordan. This story is fan fiction and therefore was written purely for enjoyment, not for personal gain.
The Eye of the World is still my favourite Wheel of Time book. It appeals so much to me because Rand and his friends survive with ta'veren luck and often sheer Two River stubborness the traps laid by their powerful enemies despite being still unexperienced and vulnerable. Let's face it, the potential for disaster in EotW was enormous. Well, I thought, what if disaster had struck... I wrote this story about one possibility.
This is the re-written version of the WIP I posted at the Scriptorium.
