I agree 100%. RJ found it mandatory to describe a really nice rack. So if he didn't mention the lung warts you could assume they were Appalachians instead of Rockies.

Egwene "raised an eyebrow."

 

Funny, most characters in WoT seem capable of the one-eyed-eyebrow raise made famous by Spock in Star Trek yet in reality, most people aren't capable of raising just one eyebrow.

 

The more I think about and read the almost constant non-verbal clues to clue us in to how a character feels, thinks, or reacts, I can't help but think that in most of these instances, we can figure out the mood of the character based on the dialogue and not an endless procession of sniffs, snorts, eyebrow raises, arms fold, fists on hips, sensing through the bond, or, if you're a wolf friend, being able to smell everything from simply fear to casual amusement with a hint of apprehension underlying a slight sense of urgency...

Only used once that I can recall, but in TGS, when Rand is thinking of the True Power - he uses the phrase "...tapped, used, and enjoyed..."

 

Now why did that line set me to reminiscing about every girlfriend I had in college, big dumb grin on my face?
