  1. Probably not. Yours must have had many sections blacked out. I'd search for the originals and read them with an unbiased mind.
  2. I am talking about this post of yours. You cannot ignore facts of the series just because you think the authors should have written things differently.
  3. This is kind of meaningless as a statement. RJ was the writer. If he saw Egwene as the best channeler among the women, she IS, since she's his creation. Hardly meaningless as there was a push to make her the best. So to compare the others and trying to say so and so is the weakest link is pointless as Egwene was made to be the perfect one who was powerful, good with weaves, learning new weaves, dream world etc... Where the others had strengths and weaknesses. So? You can interpret this as you like, but the fact is this is RJ's work. He hardly made Egwene perfect, but in his own

  6. The "weak link", such as it is, is actually Nynaeve. RJ is on record saying that as of CoT, Elayne and Egwene would pass the test to become Aes Sedai easily, while Nynaeve would struggle. Cadsuane's assessment of Nynaeve's channeling skill, miraculous with Healing but dismal at anything else, also matches this. It isn't that Nynaeve can't be good, but she's just never bothered. She can copy a weave just seeing it once, but so can Elayne, Egwene and Aviendha. What sets the others apart is how much work they put into learning a lot, whereas Nynaeve's focus was always Healing. Elayne, whi
  7. As I remember, Slayer ran away from Egwene, Nynaeve and Elayne. And its not just me saying Egwene is in the same weight class as Perrin, even Brandon says so: Also, its worth remembering it isn't just wolf-brothers that get to learn from wolves: That basically negates any innate differences between Dreamwalkers and Wolfbrothers. They are humans who enter the Dream. They can learn from other Dreamwalkers or Wolves, but they're not fundamentally different in how they approach the Dream.
  8. This, at least, is good writing. The best writers use said, and then let the context of the dialogue, and the words spoken themselves, take care of the rest. As for what the OP said, yes. Antiseptic and clinical are good descriptions of Sanderson's dialogue. People quote lines, don't have realistic conversations, when he writes.
  9. Like he was relying on his hammer. What is your point? Should Egwene have sent a weave of Fire at him, along with the certainty that it would burn him, are you saying Perrin would have had an easier time against it than if she shot an arrow at him? She was shocked that he stopped Balefire from a non-Dreamer. She was only surprised he pushed back her weave of Air, and her ropes. But Brandon said both those things were because she wasn't trying, and had no idea Perrin would be able to resist. If you think someone strong enough in the Dream to snap the mind of an opponent wouldn't give
  10. But that was uniquely a feature of Perrin's personality. If Egwene had been a Wolfsister, she would have jumped at the chance to learn new abilities, just as she did when she learned she was a channeler, or a Dreamwalker. In fact, if we go based on acceptance and feeling natural, Egwene has Perrin beat by a mile. She jumped into TAR, discovered several principles on her own, and once she got teachers, soaked whatever they taught as fast as was possible. We never see her question TAR, or feel it is unnatural for her. Scared of it at first, yes, but if you read those quotes she is also addi
  11. I'm not sure about this. While Wolves are natural inhabitants of TAR, so are Dreamwalkers. It isn't like Egwene had to be trained to access TAR. She could do so naturally, and would have done so eventually without any help. Wolves may go there when they are dead, but humans visit by accident all the time, and leave behind their dreams and nightmares. And as we see from Birgette, just because you go into TAR on death doesn't mean that a Dreamwalker cannot easily best you. Neither wolves nor Heroes seem very good at manipulating TAR. They're fine in surviving it and being themselves in it,
  12. The Amazon preview is of the final book. But Seaine herself explains why she doesn't feel comfortable standing up to Saerin. They are doing something that is illegal, and thus outside of the Hall's authority. So the fact that Sitters did not expect deference from other Sitters was set aside, since they couldn't very well claim Sitter's precedence in something like this. As for Pevara and Javindhra, they were about Ajah business. Sure, Pevara was placed at the head of the expedition, but it isn't like she, Tarna and Javindhra were stripped of their positions. Nor was what they were doin
