    Rafe Judkins' just hosted a Q&A on Twitter regarding the upcoming Wheel of Time television series. Over 190 questions were asked and answered, and while we do have a full transcription available in our library, here are some of the main takeaways (spoilers galore!):
    Most of all, we learned that Rafe Judkins' has a sense of humor (and here's a more NSFW display of his sense of humor), and is generally just an overall amazing person. The fact that he was willing to take a few hours out of his day to answer all of these questions for fans is stunning, and it's more than any of us could have ever asked for. We have so much to go through, but we look forward to so many more #WoTWednesdays!

    An earlier version of this article gave the wrong definition of polygamy/polyamory, for which we apologize.

    Sorry for the double post, but ...

    I'm really surprised about the romance thing. I did not think it would be an issue in a TV series.

    This sounds awesome :D I am glad that they will be showing channeling on screen, although anything else would be strange :look

    As for the romance, I am glad it won't be as big a focus... It isn't really that important imo... Especially with Elayne.

    He responded on twitter about the relationship between Rand and his girls, saying that he is more interested in polyamory than he is in polygamy, and hinted that the relationship would go more in that direction.

    " maybe give me a little more credit than assuming I’m gonna gut that entire story and ruin everything off a one word answer? ;)"

    There's a Facebook group for the TV show that I'm in, and I found it surprising the number of people who are completely writing it off now after that one answer. I'm just like - in multiple other places he's stated that he wants to stay as close to the books as is possible/realistic. You're way overreacting!

    Assuming you're in the same Facebook Group I'm in, yeahhhh, it got a little crazy.

    At least he doesn't seem the type to offer up just fan service (based on the q&a) and totally change course now that there's some hubbub about it. That was never one of my favorite parts. I'm all for polyamory and nontraditional romance in literature, but like... this particular one is not super compelling for me personally.
