  1. I always thought that when the arrogance was correctly placed, it was called Confidence. Perhaps I'm wrong.
  2. He's the Gollum of this story. He has to die.
  3. Actually, Perrin doesn't know what Rand was doing until ToM. Grady finally tells him early in the book when he asks to go visit his family.
  4. Unfortunately, I don't think that would work, since the oaths can still be removed somehow. I can't remember, did we ever find out exactly how the BA had their oaths removed? Was it the same oath rod, a different one, or something entirely different? Edit: Talking, of course, on the conversation about Oaths
  5. Honestly, if this were true, I would be satisfied that. Perhaps the "Blank" In the Blight is a Portal Stone?
  6. I'd actually love to see a fight with Rand/Logain vs. Moridin/Taim, all four of them fighting each other.
  7. Mordeth feeds on hate, as did Mashadar, which was the embodiment of distrust, hate, and greed, among other things. If anything, being mixed with Mordeth should make his hate for Rand even more great.
  8. It would be interesting if they played a role in AMoL, but I think that the rocks are a red herring, the excuse for using them being to get the "Black" color of the Black Tower. And of course to let us know, if we didn't already, about Taim's alliegences.
  9. I forgot to mention that my situation is interchangable with Faile as well.
  10. To be honest, I'd love to see Elayne forced to fight an army that surrounds her on all sides, after being drugged with forkroot and seperated beyond all fathomable distance from anyone that would or could help her. If you catch my drift.
  11. I don't remember if Verin knew how to invert weaves, nor where Nokomi fits on the timeline relative to Verin's death, but is it not possible that Nokomi is Verin in a Mirror of Mists disguise?
  12. I don't know how "quiet" this scene actually was, but in TDR, when Mat meets the assassain... oh, what's-his-face... in Tear, plays with the loaded dice, wins, then kills him. I don't know why, but I've always liked this scene.
  13. Aren't Moridin/Taim's favorite colors Red and Black? Maybe they'll fight Galad/an Aiel/Slayer/whatever, and kill them.
  14. Is it not possible Moiraine already knows, thanks to her times in Rhuidean?
  15. Ingtar was a shocker to me, at the beginning. I think it'd be an insult to Verin's character to NOT have that scene in TOM. Sheriam, I was always suspicious of, but... meh. :x
  16. I love the sound of Caemlyn. A true Castle-Town. Pre-Rand, it'd be a great place to live.
  17. I assumed her fate was sealed already. THey'll return to the Waste, and rot there.
  18. Elanye's ascension is the biggest one that comes to mind. It could've been much shorter, and we wouldn't have missed much.
  19. I'm gonna stretch my neck out on the block here and say that Gawyn and Egwene do get bad reps, though it's not entirely their fault. But yeah, spoilers below, so... careful. :x Gawyn's life has been in turmoil ever since Rand first fell into the Garden in Caemlyn. On his way to Tar Valon, he and their envoy were chased the length of the distance by Whitecloaks. When they arrive, he's pushed to the extent of physical, and likely mental strain (we don't know too much about Warder training. I assume they're doing more than just training with a sword). Then, his beloved sister and the love of his life disappear without a trace. Twice. With Morgase going to the Tower to get Elayne back, Gawyn (with the help of Galad, of course), is forced to withstand the sheer force of their mother's will to stay in the White Tower. When Min returns, he is baited with the oppertunity to get some information, but it witheld from him. When the Tower splits, he makes the decision any without full information would do. He sided with the Tower. This put even more mental strain on him, as he was forced to cut down his own mentors. And after he's made the full declaration of what side he is on, what happens? He meets Min, along with the Stilled Siuan and Leane. He knows he can't back out now, after what he's done. He's engrained in the tower now, for better or worse. However, he lets them go. Why? Because Elayne and Egwene trusted them. Again, mental challenges. Afterwards, Gawyn is sent on missions that become more and more impossible by Elaida, in attempts to be rid of him. on one of these missions, he learns of Morgase's death, supposedly at the hands of Rand. After a trauma like this, along with the obvious fact that mothers use names of men that could channel to scare their children, is it so far-fetched that he boiled a hatred for the man? Even after reuniting with Egwene for a short time, his hatred could not be lost. What can I say? It's a character trait, just like any other. Eventually Gawyn decides to leave the Younglings and ride for Egwene, after he learns of her danger. He's riding to protect the one he loves. After the Seanchan attack, I think it would be even more of a character flaw if he HADN'T gone to rescue her, her wishes aside. After this, he is refused even the smallest hint of gratitude, and is instead punished by the woman he loves. Seeking refuge, he returns to Caemlyn to speak with his sister. Elayne, being the worthless person she is, is rather unhelpful, but the Seanchan women are. He gets back just in time to singlehandedly fight off THREE, not just two, but THREE FREAKING BLOODKNIVES. In the dark. Only afterwards is he finally reunited officially with Egwene. I think in the next book we will see some major character differences after the wedding, since he can finally be at peace with himself. Oh, and Morgase and whatnot. As for Egwene, all I can say is, I'll laugh when it turns out she was under mild Compulsion the whole time.
  20. Seems my post got deleted... so... I found that Rand's impending madness was an interesting plot device. He's been able to hold it at bay, but we never know quite how well he's able to do so. From his own thoughts he seems quite sane, but then... I'll stop there for fear of spoilers, but... yeah.
  21. I've always found his impending Madness to be an interesting trait.
  22. I think Elayne, Egwene, and Faile are three manifestations of the Dark One, sent to seduce Rand and Perrin over the years to eventually kill them. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
  23. Impossible. Bela's too tolerant for that. Remember, she allowed Egwene to ride her.
  24. And risk being killed by a drunk Aiel? That's a bit dangerous.
