  1. I have a very hard time believing he was raped as well. Maybe it's the PG 13 nature of WOT, but even that scene with the knife didn't strike me as rape. I really can't see a man physically capable of performing if he felt violated.
  2. I think that's a possibility, not a probability. After the flame war over whether Suroth was raped last time I brought this up, I'm going to be cautious in my claims.I'd be more inclined to believe Messana was raped out of the two, given Shaidar Harans treatment of Mog.I don't think SH had enough time; I thought Mesaana screamed because he punished her severely, ie, hit her. Rape would require a bit too much time, and the WT is full of Aes Sedai, who might happen to notice something funny going on. I imagine the the room was warded in someway, besides that though Shaidar Haran did leave his

  4. Your opinion: Sanderson gave a better ending than RJ would have. My opinion: AMOL was garbage and the worst of Sanderson's contributions to the series. Let's chuck writing arguments out the window since people can't seem to understand the difference between taste (subjective) and quality (objective). Here's all my issues, just the ones that I can think of Demandred: - exhibits cartoon supervillain intelligence, constantly yelling across the battlefield like retard instead of nuking vast chunks of army with ease - thinking rand is at FOM instead of shayol ghul....why? bunch of weak
  5. Only in the same way that astronauts are time travelers when then return from being in orbit.
  6. It does not carry over. It's just for that lifetime. That would point more toward what I was saying in the end, Moridin's body is unable to channel. No way to know for sure though.
  7. From Demanded's point of view, while he has Taim Shielded and is drawing the True Power through him, he notes to himself that drawing The True Power Though someone risks burning them out. We know that channeling is a thing of the body and soul,what we don't know is if Moridin was burned out; does that mean that any subsequent soul that inhabits the body will be unable to channel? Another scenario is has been mentioned,Rand was burned out himself from drawing too much of the one, power; meaning his soul lost the ability to channel. It could even be a combination of the two. The more
  8. What do you mean Terez?!?! Didn't you see that raging TEMPEST of a power display at Maradon, where Rand channeled a STORM of LIGHT!!! I mean it's not like he had an item of power to help him or anyth...errr wait.This does raise another good question. Just how strong IS that fat man angreal he had? Far as I know, they kept calling it an angreal and not a s'angreal. Also, at one point Pevara remarks that it "just isn't fair" how Androl can sense her channeling but she can't sense his. But then throughout the last battle, the Aes Sedai all seem to be operating under the theory (and Egwene rema
  9. Yes. This. Not forgetting that it's also not safe to use them without the keys.
  10. I was thinking along the lines that all powerfully made Sa'angreal have this manufacturing flaw. Whether or not the Choedan Kal were made to be used with the keys, it seems that the Sa' angreal themselves are unsafe to use without the ter' angreal access keys. the most likely reason would be no buffer. Though whatever the flaw is, it's still a flaw- intended or not. So we still have 5 Sa ' angreal , all flawed in someway.
  11. At 1st I thought this as well. When considering it a bit more I realised that every Sa' angreal seems to have the same buffer problem, our at least some major flaws. We don't get confirmation of this with Demandred's Sa' angreal, just a guess from Taim's POV.I'm pretty sure that's not true. Most angreal and sa'angreal have the buffer. That's why the lack of a buffer in Callandor is referred to as a flaw. If Sarkanen also had one, I'd chalk that up to Sanderson inventing it, since he wrote both in. Seems like a deus ex machina device to me. I'm talking Sa' angreal only; every one so far has
