WOLFHEART MAKES ME RAGE OUT SO HARD LOL godddddd seriously just ffffhhhhhh Aaaaaaaaaa. God. Knaak is so vile. Fandom is so fucky. Maiev is still rightfully angry grieving Naisha who istg she was all but married to and Illidan is hatescared of Maiev rrggh god. WC3 was not perfect but it handled both characters so much better than WoW and the novels.
I had to skim read Wolfheart a second time to remember WTF was going on for my highborn murders rewrite and I have never read anything more painful, clumsy and inexplicably numbing in my entire god damn life.
IIRC Knaak is also the one who dropped the “lol Shandris is AKSHULLY Tyrande’s foster duaghter” bullshit which was.. so… so appreciated. So definitely, fully fucking appreciated. Fuck.
WHICH BRINGS ME to like, people who also insist or see Naisha as a daughter figure?????? They assume she’s younger than Maiev by a significant amount and then say that makes a relationship creepy when we have literally no evidence?
“She doesn’t recognise Suramar ruins!!!!” she recognises Azshara’s statue and MAYBE SHE DIDN’T LIVE IN SURAMAR. IT TOOK MAIEV A MOMENT TO REALISE WHERE THEY WERE AND SHE LIVED THERE.
