Brown Ajah Chocolate Week—Chocolate Limericks

Recommended Posts

Okay, brothers, sisters, Mother, *nods.*


We’re about to have a lot of fun by writing poems, called limericks, to WIN.  But you’ll have to swallow a mouthful (of chocolate), here, to understand how this works.


A limerick is a fun, short, poem with five lines.  The first, second, and fifth line in the poem are longer than the third and fourth.  Line 1 has 7-10 syllables, Line 2, 7-10, Line 3 it’s 5-7 syllables instead, Line 4, 5-7 again, then line 5, back to 7-10 syllables.  


The rhyming scheme is AABBA, with the longer lines all rhyming with each other and the two short lines in the middle rhyming. 


Edward Sear made them really popular, here’s one of his as an example: 


“There was an Old Man with a beard

Who said, 'It is just as I feared!

Two Owls and a Hen,

Four Larks and a Wren,

Have all built their nests in my beard!'"


So in our game, one of us will writes a line of the limerick poem (and gain one point for their line) and then the next person writes a line (also gaining a point), and we go back and forth, contributing, to make that poem.  Once those five lines are written, then we start another poem, and so on.  Whoever has the most points at the end of it wins.      


All clear?  I know that’s a mouthful.  But have fun and enjoy!


Line 1:


There’s nothing like chocolate cake,

    • Yes but there is opening yourself to channel and then there is a quick unintentional use.  If you notice before Rand became a channeler, fully aware of what he was doing and willing try to embrace the power, all you get are the side effects from channeling (the taking chances etc,,) but not the filth feeling.  After book 1, when the using the power and the side effects happened near the same time, all he gets is the filth.  The difference is he knows he can channel and needs to embrace the source to channel.  Just like the women who are starting to channel never seem to notice the warmth of touching the female half until they survive the side effects and become aware what they are doing.  A wilder like Nyn, had she stayed in the Two Rivers, never would of felt the feeling of opening herself to the source since she had built up a block, so it might have to do with you have to open yourself up to the power to feel the good or bad.     In one of Rand's lives in book 2 I believe he was a member of the Queen's guards and was lucky, he thought later he understood why but he didn't care.  He was suffering from touching the male half but was basicly a wilder and it was never said he was feeling the filth.  So I think a lot has to do with someone who channels but doesn't really know it or is never trained how to do it aren't fully opening themselves up enough to feel the filth or warmth.  They are incapable of doing anything more then a quick touch of the surface.   It's possible Rand would of started to feel nausea when he accidently channeled and not probably not understand why.  But there seems to be a difference between inadvertently channeling and intentionally channeling.
