  1. Dang it, you're right. THIS IS CONFIRMED IN AMOL GUYS!!!!!!!
  2. I loved that part and was grinning through it. To each their own I supposed.
  3. He actually has annotations for all his books, so you can learn a lot about his writing process. He plans everything out (he has hundreds of pages of notes on The Stormlight Archive), but he also likes throwing in a few new things as he writes and is willing to break from his careful plans when he finds something that feels more "right". Brandon's style of writing is amazing, but the differences that Wheel of Time has from Mistborn and The Way of Kings make it harder to write. Also, Brandon is working off of Jordan's plans, not his own.
  4. *Appears suddenly after having been a very small-time poster about a year and a half ago* I loved loved loved this book. I thought Brandon and RJ absolutely nailed the ending, although I can definitely see some flaws in it. I did start happily screaming when all the Chekhov's Guns came together. (Before I speak, I'll say that I started reading WOT in January 2011, and have only read the series once. Also, I decided to get into Brandon's other books in March 2012, and he's now my favourite author ever. So my thoughts won't really have any "hardcore WOT" points, because I'm not really a
  5. Old guy takes a nap. Fat guy conquers the couch. Soldier trips on a rock. Drunken man noms his friend.
  6. ... when you say "the one power" instead of "magic". ... when a crazy coincidence happens and you say, "Ta'veren". ... when you're reading a book on famous murders and you wonder why Asmo isn't listed. ... when you say, "Light!", "Blood and bloody ashes!", "Mother's milk in a cup!" and "Flaming" instead of normal swear lords. ... when you wake up and find yourself reaching for a WoT book. ... when you wonder if people are actually reincarnated Forsaken. ... when you tell your kids to "Go to bed or Lanfear will get you!" (Okay, I'm not even married, but you know) ... when you perfectly r
  7. Well, I'm pretty sure mother's milk in a cup was supposed to be dirty, but I also get that "dirty" vibe from Easing The Badger. You know, swordfights in WoT are really boring. It's just 'he used insert technique here'. Kind of like an RPG, only not interactive and you don't know what all the moves do.
  8. I'm certain I heard Jordan say he decided to geniunely turn back to the light.
  9. Exactly what I was going to say! Rand knew he was mad, he was just trying to blame the madness on "Lews Therin".
  10. The grining Aiel from ToM (shiver) of course! Aiel have red hair! And beer! (I always mentally pronounce Aiel "ale").
  11. Have you ever hilariously misread anything in WoT? I have. Post yours. - In tGS, I thought the chapter "The Tower Stands" was called "The Tower Sucks". - At one point I thought Galad said, "We are bacon!!" to the whitecloaks.
  12. Well, it is TAR so Demandred could have made a copy of himself or something. I'm sure Elayne, Nynaeve, Egwene, Rand, Mat, Perrin, Thom, Morgase and Dyelin will be very shocked to learn that Elayne was Demandred the whole time.
  13. Does anybody else notice how Amys is always saying that The World of Dreams is the most dangerous thing ever and making metaphors such as "Letting someone not familiar with it wander the World of Dreams is like letting a wetlander baby walk the waste." What exactly is this supreme danger? Yes, I know there are nightmares and other people in Tel'aran'rhiod, but any sensible person would be able to figure out "avoid the evil black things". And nightmares only appear in TAR when it serves the plot or creates drama, so it seems like Amys is over-reacting. Yes, there are wolves there, but they don'
  14. qft How could it be anyone else? He is Nae'blis. Well, it could always be The Dark One. But I think the Smiling Aiel had the 13 X 13 trick used on them.
  15. Agreed. But be careful, you'll enrage all of the posters who think that Jordan had every detail of this series fixed firmly in his mind from the first moment. I also think Taim was originally going to be Demandred. Really? I've thought a bit about this and it seems strange -- why should one of the Forsaken declare himself to be the Dragon Reborn? Knew he was going to get a lot of attention - including from Aes Sedai - and also he would've had to have been freed from the prison long before Aginor and whoever else was freed near the end of the EoTW. I think. Evidence in support is "
