but yeah, in this short story, it mentions two previously unheard of (at least to me) Aons: Aon Ati (meaning hope) and Aon Aeo (meaning bravery).
I don't have any ideas about Aon Aeo, but what about Aon Ati? Ringing any bells, my friends?
I'm pointing this out because I don't see Brandon as someone to use the same word for different reasons without noticing. Therefore, I think this is a clue (or something). As to what it's a clue FOR, well, I have no idea. :T
I'm having a hard time linking Ati (that is, Ruin or atium or something) to the concept of hope, so make of this what you will. i just thought i'd throw this out there. :3
EDIT: i apologize profusely if this has been pointed out by someone before; i tried searching the forums to see but the search bar doesn't allow keywords below 4 letters, and 'hope' didn't seem to turn up much.
