What was your motivation behind-- for killing Elhokar and simultaneously ripping my heart out?
So, it was-- I never feel like I'm killing characters, I'm letting characters take risks and I'm letting other characters have agency to do the things they're doing in the books. That whole plot cycle was more-- less me killing someone off and more me letting Moash go down the dark path that he have been demanding that he go down.
Okay, but you realize half the fandom-- or the whole fandom practically wants him dead now.
Yes, yes. Well, they should! He made a very, very bad decision, and he deserves everything that the fandom is throwing at him.
