  1. Haha I am doing well, ready to tank whatever wolf team I am on one more time!
  2. Look at all of your lovely faces! How are you friends?
  3. Have we considered the concept of circular lives in relationship to this? One of my early theories (that I dismissed because the DM crowd seemed so far beyond me) seems to fit decently here. What if they are two halves of the same individual, a split of sorts created by the need for balance between the Dark One and Creator? I think between Herid Fel's minute talks about breaking down and the various references to both the disparity and connection of Rand and Ishmael that this could be supported.
  4. I always just say WoT names however sounds best in my head. Nin-ah-vae, Eg-weene, Shaun-chan, Ace Sed-I, etc are a few I had trouble with once I heard how the audio books say them.
  5. I thought it was practially known that Lan is going to survive. Their is far too much evidence contrary to the popular view that he is going to die. Really that only comes from his nature and the sticky situation he was in when we last saw him.
  6. And let us not forget Lan's line (probably going to misquote) "Fade's have no eyes but they see better than you or I boy".-EOTW Who else sees better and can feel the world around them better? Channelers. Especially those using the true power. This theory is very likely to me.
  7. My thought on it was always that free will is not a lie in the series. Moraine Sedai, I believe, made it clear that you could struggle against your path and would either be drug into it screaming or break free of it. I consider Perrin to be either the most or the second most divided character in the series (after Rand notably) in his struggles with his fate but in the opposing direction. One who wishes their path wasn't set so that they could do more than the pattern allows for. It seems to me that your first theory was correct here but that Perrin is, by nature, inclined to the duties that he has set on regardless of if the pattern pushes him or not.
  8. I honestly think that Loial is going to die and several of the aforementioned people will be gone. Slayer and Perrin's battle I imagine to be short to the point of near starkness. Perhaps only a paragraph or two where Perrin ducks and obliterates him or the like. Rand, I have always thought, would have to deal with more than the DO alone. I also believe that Lan will pass, perhaps with Nyn. Caddy I am almost certain of.

    About me 2.0

    Greetings everyone! I'm Darthe and I am really a 20 year old psychology student living in western North Carolina. I have a wonderful relationship and am generally a pretty happy person. When I was four I half taught myself to read because I really wanted to find out what was on the inside of The House of the Seven Gables and fantasy/fiction have been my favorite form of story since. I made fairly good grades though school and when I was in eigth grade I was asked to become a part time college student in a new program called the Early College system. I did so and got my associates degree a year ago when I graduated high school. While in the program I started playing guitar, which I found I had a true knack for. This has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, as I find that there is nothing that I can't share through the melodies that I sometimes make. I have also always been a pretty avid gamer. Between reading, guitar, gaming, and my relationship I stay fairly busy (which I prefer). That said, I also managed to find time to work as a blacksmith for two summers, to DJ for a year, and to take care of horses. I am beginning to write more often and hope to have my own book out someday. The reason I was inspired to start writing was that I walked into a book store one day, bored out of my mind, and asked one of the workers if they would recommend a book to me the first book that was given to me was The Eye of the World. To be honest, I majorly judged it by it's cover and almost didn't buy it. Needless to say, I am beyond happy that i did! Once I finished it I voraciously read and reread the others several times until I could run through most of the story in my head. When I wanted to find the end of the series I came online and discovered two things; I found out that RJ had passed away about a month before I started reading his series and I discovered that WoT has one of the most devoted fanbases of any series. After being uninvolved here for a few years, I decided to join while reading the cage matches and am really enjoying it so far. One other thing you should know about me, I am driven by the connections I have with people and by my interests. I tend to get bored quickly with everything but people, but the things I mentioned above have managed to keep my interest as well. Because of how much I value relationships in my life I decided to not only become a Psychologist, but also to join a Fraternity. It is not a "frat" and I am not "fratty". As an organization, the fraternity that I am involved in called Theta Xi supports the MS foundation and Habitat for Humanity. Theta Xi is a no-hazing organization. I love the friends and brothers I have gained. I wouldn't trade that connection.
  10. Sadly, this gets no views though the previous match already has passed =p
  11. What if Rand got BF'd a few books back when fighting or something and Demandred has been impersonating him all along?

  14. Hello! Firstly, welcome to DM! This is a pretty active site and I am sure that you will find all you ever want to know about the series here. Secondly, Robert Jordan's works are wonderful and we all love them very much. The Great Hunt is a fantastic book (one of my favorites ) but I would advise you to read the first before continuing past the second book if you want to even finish it. The series can be difficult because of its breadth but is totally worth it, and you can find the first book called The Eye of The World at most bookstores. There are a total of thirteen books in the series at the moment with the fourteenth and final chapter due to come out on January 8, 2013. I am positive that you will enjoy all of them! Robert Jordan also wrote a couple of related novels titled New Spring and The Strike at Shayol Ghul, but to fully appreciate them I would advise reading at least to the eleventh book first. Sadly, the wonderful RJ passed away in 2007, but in his absence he left many notes and so his series is being completely by Brandon Sanderson, who is doing his best (which is very good indeed) to give the series it's full and due respect and effort. All thirteen of the books are wonderful, as I am sure the fourteenth will be and I promise that reading them will not be a mistake. In any case, welcome to DM once more and I hope you love it here!
  15. Moiraine is winning 3,122 Votes to 1,915 Votes as of now!
  16. None. He is useless fodder and foreshadowing. Just kidding ! Olver is probably going to have some tie in with the Seanchan or Wondergirls. I can't even remotely figure out how he could be important yet though.
  17. Rand Cara the Mordsith Arya Stark Darth Vader Brom.
  18. I have always seen "twice dawns the day" to be a metaphorical thing rather than literal. BF doesn't have the strength to move the sun unless the sun is what is hit or something, so it isn't aas if the sun is going to rise, fall an hour, and then rise again or something. In a literal sense, Rand's battle with the DO could cause him to enter on one dawn and exit victorious on the next I suppose. There is foreshadowing for this and for a metaphorical sense in which Rand brings a new day etc. Evidenced: Lord of the Morning, He Who Comes With the Dawn, etc. After all, does anyone know why LTT got that name and why it passed to Rand?
  19. Did RJ or associated ever say anything about this?
  20. When he pulls the pattern around he seems to do it in game changing ways, such as the aforementioned instances, but both of the other ta'veren that we see change events in their everyday lives in addition to large events. I suppose I am wondering if you all believe that the nature of ta'veren can be different for different people, and if yes then how so?
  21. Any chance that Rand's blood is actually something more? As in a seal to the DO or some sort of catalyst? I mean, he is the Dragon, chosen and spoken to by the creator. Perhaps he picked something up in Veins of Gold or Eye of the World that makes his blood a poison of sorts? No real idea but "In the Pit of Doom shall his blood free men from the Shadow."
