  1. Charis! *tacklepounce* ? This new layout isn't working for me. I hardly stop by at all anymore. If this is how it will be moving forward, I'll probably just come back once the show's on and post in the TV show threads or something, assuming that I like the show. I had a hard enough time being active when I could go straight to the sections that interested me, but now that I have to scroll through random threads that are all thrown together, it's like sorting through a big pile of laundry to find that one matching sock, and I just don't care enough not to just blow the sock off, wear sandals, and walk someplace else.
  2. I'm so sorry! You and your family are in my prayers!
  3. That's beautiful, Mother! And yes, thank you, Rhea! And all hail Mashi! Finally, Woohoo! Kukaso is here, too! We should bring her "I have a son!" thread over here so that she can continue to update it.
  4. She was reasonable about accepting the title "First Reasoner," so I"d say she's off to a pretty good start.
  5. As far as the books go, I can sympathize with each of the Ajah's missions; I can see how a case can be made for each Ajah being the most important one, and for that reason, if I were a real Aes Sedai, I would be a Gray. Grays are needed in order to smooth relations between the Ajahs, amplify the voices of the smaller Ajahs, and ensure that there is enough peace and stability in the world for each Ajah to pursue their passion in the interest of best serving mankind, although in my heart, I would have always longed to be a Brown, researching and recovering lost knowledge, but my duty would have been to serve as a Gray, and so that's what I would have done. On Dragonmount, I just clicked the best with the Whites, so that's the Ajah that I chose. I also hung around the Browns a lot and the Yellows a bit, but I didn't visit the others that often, and I felt no connection to the Blue at that time (2006). Now, I spend my time in the White and sometimes lurk in the Blue because I had a lot of fun playing some fantasy adventure games with them a year or two ago, and I read some of the Brown threads, as well. I enjoyed taking part in their book challenge a couple of years ago. I don't go to the other Ajahs that often, as I really don't spend much time on Dragonmount.
  6. Dar'Jen Ab Owain has also figured out how to get that coin out of there without breaking the bottle or pulling out the cork. Are they the only two who will have some pocket change, or are you logical enough to get the coin, too?
  7. Seems reasonable. The WoT Wiki says First Reasoner, and I'm pretty sure that First Weaver is for the Yellow, but I could be mistaken.
  8. Wassup, my Sisters? And Brothers, if Aes Sedai Guy and Jeran ever wander back through.
  9. Congratulations! You've been a wonderful addition to Dragonmount, and I know you will do a fine job with the Warders!
  10. Haha Well, I always thought that Kate Beckinsale would make a wonderful Moiraine, so no, I don't think she would be awful. I was actually thinking of Sophie Turner, who looked almost exactly the way I pictured Sansa Stark but seemed forced and wooden throughout the first season of the show. She was the only actor I didn't like in that first season, but to her credit, I thought she improved by leaps and bounds over the next few seasons, and by the end of the series, I thought she might even be the best actor left. But Rosmand Pike will be good from the start. I am confident of it.
  11. JamesBrown has solved the puzzle! Who else can solve it? PM me about the clever way in which you retrieved that shiny coin.
  12. JamesBrown has solved the puzzle! Who else is going to take advantage of these amazing fruit prices and stock up? Fill your basket, and PM me your answer!
  13. Gentled Ben, Aes Sedai of the White Ajah, who is quite satisfied with the casting. I don't think Moiraine's diminutive stature has major plot significance, so a taller actress is fine, and if they darken her hair, as JamesBrown said, she should look fine. As far as her acting, I think she will be great. I'd rather have an actress who can handle the part but does not perfectly fit my image, than to see my picture of Moiraine take life on the screen only to botch the role with bad acting, and Rosamund Pike can definitely handle the part.
  14. Since I forgot the June puzzle, here's a little puzzle of a different sort as a bonus for July. As always, PM me your answers. If you were to put a coin into an empty bottle and then insert a cork into the neck, how could you remove the coin without taking out the cork or breaking the bottle?
