* After all, Biblioden ''did'' say "Worse than killing my brother". There is also a strange number of parallels between them. Biblioden once sank a continent of his followers. [[spoiler:Grandpa Smedry, according to Draulin]], once caused at east one island to sink.

 Alcatraz claims that book five, being the DarkestHour, ends his autobiography, and by the end of it he's horrified out of heroism. Fair enough. But Sanderson doesn't usually end his books at the DarkestHour, and there's a lot of unresolved questions that book five doesn't resolve. Moreover, while for each of his other series (that he mentions on that page) he labels the final book with "final book", for the Alcatraz series, book five is just "book five." Moreover, he refers to it as "the fifth book (and the final one Alcatraz will write)". I therefore theorize that "New YA project" - a new trilogy - will be the final three books of the Alcatraz Smedry series, from a new character's point of view - probably either Bastille or one of the supporting-character Smedrys.

** Spoilers for book five: [[spoiler: confirmed. In the scene that opened the series, Alcatraz refuses to make a HeroicSacrifice, and says [[MyGreatestFailure "Take him instead;"]] the BigBad does and kills his father, and [[DownerEnding Alcatraz ends up a bitter shell of a man]], writing the book to explain why he's such a horrible person.]]



** It could also mean that Bastille is mildly AntiMagic, and might end up saving the world by being a ManOfKryptonite.

* We know that Bastille can hit Alcatraz, when basically no one else can. Why? RuleOfFunny, obviously. Except... this is Creator/BrandonSanderson. His magic systems are legendarily interesting, coherent, and plot-relevant. So, it is likely Foreshadowing, with an explanation (to be revealed in a later book) for exactly why Bastille can hit Alcatraz.

* Either one explains his insistence that he isn't a hero: It's the half crazed memoir of either a child wracked with survivors guilt, or a boy weighed down with PTSD after having killed his father; therefore disillusioned with his heroic actions.

* For the theory that he killed him, in book for we realize that [[spoiler: Atticus is actually doing the wrong thing by trying to give everyone Smedry powers]]. In the fifth book, I theorize that Alcatraz will be forced to kill him to save the world.
