  1. Do you mean KoD with "The House on Full-Moon Street"? Yeah, she seemed cocky when Birgitte reached her. She's like, "Oh-I-knew-nothing-would-happen-because-my-babies-will-be-born-well." Maybe the Black Ajah would have seen to it that the babies were born healthy, so Min's viewing would still have come true, and then they kill you right after they're born so that the Shadow has Randspawn.
  2. Could the black cord have been Ishy's connection to the DO, like how Rand was able to cut Asmodean off.
  3. While I do enjoy many of the characters and like some varying points of view, I agree with AuldGoldBear. There get too be so many storylines and characters in each of them that it gets bogged down. Your example with Thom is a bloody excellent point. In the first three books, I adored Thom immensely. He was "fatherly" and yet also "friend-like", his sacrifice at Whitebridge being noble, his reunion with Rand in Cairhien being incredible, and his ventures in TDR being rather solid. After that, he just gets cast in as "there" with the other characters in Mat's party. I'm glad Moiraine's letter ha
  4. "The Gathering Storm" question Chapter: The Last That Could Be Done Semirhage has collared Rand and is forcing him to choke Min, when suddenly Rand feels a strange power overcoming him. Lews Therin screams that they must not use it as it was "HIM" (Shai'ton), and then a face passes before Rand's view. Was that Moridin, helping from his "bond" with Rand? He did say previously that he could kill Semirhage for what she had done (the hand), but why would Moridin go against Shaidar Haran (the most sentient form of the Dark One at this point in time)? Shaidar Haran came to Semirhage with exp
  5. The reason I was so fascinated by Jordan's Semirhage was because she was like barely there, seemed so mysterious (not exactly Demandred-level mysterious, but close) and was just this monstrous tormentor. I was cool with her under Brandon's supervision up until Shaidar Haran set her free and she just got way too cocky and stupid. I had perceived her as one of the smarter and more powerful Forsaken, and so she should certainly have been smart enough to heed Shaidar Haran's words more carefully. Shame, shame. ...I haven't yet seen Graendal transform into a stupid bimbo yet, but I sense it com
  6. Sheesh, rude much. Those cocky rolling eyes add nothing to conversation or debate. Obviously I don't really believe Egwene is ta'veren as Jordan made only the main trio ta'veren. More or less, I aim at a discussion of why she isn't ta'veren, and why she's able to do everything she is. I believe the reason so many people from the Two Rivers are "special" or "gifted" is because Rand is uber-ta'veren and controls their threads somehow. That may also interfere with other characters beyond the Two Rivers whom he meets, such as Elayne, Min, and Avienda, especially as he has sex with all of th
  7. Yeah, what's Robert Jordan know about the Wheel of Time? Obviously not as much as True Source Creator... I. am. Robert. Jordan.
  8. Definitely. At Dumai's Wells, my jaw dropped at the weaves the Asha'man were doing because none of the "good guy" (*cough* *cough*) organizations thus far had shown any outward sign of kick-assery like they did there, as the Aes Sedai were just throwing fireballs and lightning in any prior engagement (except when Moiraine balefired Be'lal).
  9. Christopher Waltz: "That's a BINGO!" Seriously, they seem like rejects, judging by their pasts before joining the Shadow.
  10. In the direct series, yes. I should rephrase it to the universe of the WoT, then. But, psh, Egwene's ta'veren. It's so freaking obvious. Nynaeve must be, too.
  11. I've pondered on this. I do feel there will be some confrontation with Shaidar Haran, but surely even killing "it" couldn't kill Shai'ton. But, I just don't reasonably see any way Rand could actually confront Shai'ton, because if that happens Shai'ton would have to be outside the Bore...unless Rand could somehow be inside the Bore (I guess that could be possible if the Forsaken had been trapped into the Bore).
  12. ^ Artur Hawkwing. He was all ghostly in TGH, but it still counts as an appearance!
  13. ^ Not true! There are technically at least 4 ta'veren in the series, and one of them does make a "cameo" performance in TGH.
  14. Major difference between Sanderson and Jordan: Whereas Jordan would devote 4-5 chapters at a time to a single character/group's story arc, Sanderson splits it up more. It does cut down on the monotony of storylines like Perrin's, which were tedious as they would span as many as 6 chapters at a time. But it also makes the focus jump around a lot more than before. However, I'm just glad Rand has not been reduced to a cameo or near-cameo performance, which had happened a couple times under Jordan's focus, especially in "Crossroads of Twilight" and, suprisingly, "The Dragon Reborn." - in which he
  15. From Himiko's post in the thread titled "Elayne". Rand's uber-ta'veren status made all the other ta'veren born around him, and since he was brought to the Two Rivers, that means they were born there, and which also explains why so many channelers have been brought from there since TEoTW. Soooo...Egwene's ta'veren. Duh!
  16. Entreri: I do agree that the Forsaken are just pawns, and they don't realize that, which is why they're so flawed. Moridin understands, though, and I have a feeling Lanfear/Cyndane will have more importance later (I hope so, she was always my favorite). Another point I'd like to reiterate. The Forsaken are defeated because they don't really work together (in a slight way, Lanfear and Asmodean did for a time, and Demandred is something of a "player" with two of the sexiest women of all time by his side: Mesaana and Semirhage). They act in their own interests and for the most part haven't ac
  17. I agree. I love the Forsaken actually. Any chance I get to read about them, I just savor it and often re-read those parts most frequently...especially "At the Gardens" from KoD. I do hate how they're defeated too easily, but I agree with what you say. They've been flawed, and that should be expected. The only major complaint I have with any of them is what I read today about Semirhage, who had before been my fifth or fourth favorite Forsaken. But they actually have caused much havoc and could still cause more. Mesaana has split the White Tower, Ishamael/Lanfear tried to convert Rand, Lanfear/A
  18. The romances. GAH! Why does every character have to have a love interest. My biggest complaint is just hearing Gawyn want to break into the White Tower to save Egwene...without having any real relationship with her. Ugh! And I don't like the portrayal (from the women's point of views) of all the males as stubborn, wool-headed, idiotic, macho, etc. etc. etc. Sheesh! I don't think it's right for a guy to slap a girl or what have you, but there should be some restraint to having almost every woman character slap or talk down to at least one man in the course of the series.
  19. I just remembered Gawyn. He has to be perhaps my least favorite character. I loved that he was absent for most of the series, but here I am reading TGS. Something really interesting had just happened And then we shift over to...Gawyn. EWWW! Galad, too. Such a snooze. These "manly" men just annoy me. By extent, I don't care much for Gareth Bryne either, but at least he's more noble and likeable than those two. And Perrin's chapters bored me for a while (between PoD and KoD). They had some slightly interesting points, but mostly they were bogged down with his devotion to find Faile a
  20. With over 1800 characters, we're all bound to dislike at least one, or a dozen. Personally, I don't have any strong animosity toward any character. The ones I like the least actually don't appear enough to be truly hated. But I will say from the cast of characters, one I've never really liked is Domon. He's always seemed so ignorant to me, and also rather uninteresting. I don't like the Domani talk, either. Too much emphatic tense annoys me. Another annoying character was Masema, especially when he gets all preachy about the Dragon, but I think he was under Compulsion or something, judging by
  21. I've been neutral on Egwene for a while. In the earlier books, I kind of liked her, but I stopped caring later. Now I find her chapters of her in the White Tower trying to unseat Elaida rather intriguing. I've never disliked Elayne, except for her underdeveloped love story with Rand. Her challenge for the throne of Andor was rather interesting. Perrin has been my least favorite of the original trio, and most of that oes have to do with the rather redudant saving Faile storyline that spanned like three or four books before it finally ended.
  22. And ridiculously stupid. Then again, the good guys aren't exactly shining examples of brilliance either. Most of the people in the series are so utterly stupid that most of us could go in there and be their tyrant in no time flat. Why bother reading the books if you seem to hate/dislike all the characters?
  23. I mean emotionally tipsy. Like a rollercoaster. She's always just been there to me, not really of any importance. If she had killed Galina, Sevaana, or Therava, I would have liked her more. At least she killed Masema, though. He was annoying.
