  1. Cool! Now, whom is playing Lan?? Pike will kill it, she always does in the roles she does. Whomever plays Lan must complement her.
  2. It is a risk. but after reading this, I am still really excited.
  3. I like it!! Even reading the Cleansing myself, it felt like a medical procedure being performed. It is really cool. Of course, I then went into the nuking theory, which re reading told me was wrong. Thanks for this!! No one has explained the Cleansing well, too many mathematicians here using equations that lost me.
  4. Greetings Yruc!! Welcome to Dragonmount!!
  5. I think they are saying that if you find a way, somehow, mental illness can be lived with. But it requires not only a strong personality from , but a great upbringing and the right people around you that care.
  6. But Nyneave Healing Naeff's madness reveals that the taint is a variation of the True Power's Compulsion. We know that there are effects when it is used that does not happen with the One Power. Perhaps the Dark One did nothing, but the crossed balefire agravated the taint each time Rand channelled after that. Perhaps each time he channelled, since book two, a weave of True Power Compulsion overlaid his mind, getting worse each time. If this is true, then the balefire crossing overlaid two or three weaves of True Power Compulsion, each time Rand channelled after that moment, speeding up the sickness, which distracted Rand from going being aware of the madness from the taint. We also know that Lews Therin's voice gets more and more difficult to manage after this point as well.
  7. I recommend the veil and mustaches. If you do the fez, you may get kids mistaking you for the Doctor, since 11 wore one.
  8. She was Sylvie. The only reason she took action was the identical reason Moghedien did to Egwene when she came across her in Tal'aran rhiod. Because Lanfear saw Egwene as a threat to her abilities. It was quite true, considering Moghedien was far superior to Lanfear in ability, and Egwene still escaped her.
  9. Emarin is the answer to your question. His House sort Aes Sedai assistance with a family member, remember? I do not think the Red Ajah would be good with male channelers, and Thom's account of his nephew is proof of that harsh treatment. Also, the reaction from the Red Ajah from hearing that rumour suggests that they did in fact accuse some of the men they gentled of being a False Dragon. Perhaps that is why Thom despised the Aes Sedai so much?? Because the Red Ajah did that to his nephew, so they did not have to take him back to the Tower like they were supposed to?
  10. That would be a shame not paying attention. I like debating book stuff. Particularly when readers forget how things play out at critical moments such as this, knowing it would not end well if it did. It is good practice for real world discussions, actually. Learned tons from coming here. Many varying views on everything. Quite civil, too.
  11. That character could only be from the family that met her previously, unless a witness to them. If Julie Andrews is playing her character from the first film, then it seems to confirm my Doctor's wife theory. He has had past adventures with his other selves, like the 50th. He is the only character to do this in all of pop culture without multiverses being present in the background to explain it. Mary has to be travelling through Time, and had many adventures between films that we have not seen with different faces. Perhaps the books are those stories?
  12. Yeah! It would be like the good old days, like Sutt's clash with one of Sanderson's crew that time. It was most entertaining, and kept me coming back. All the debates and memes and tantrums that are coming are going to be glorious. All the teasing is going to be fun.
  13. Both of which were disastrous if Perrin didn't. To me, he is Sam given command, while Mat is Merry given it. Quite cool actually.
  14. Sammael's long range attack makes me feel that that is something only men can do?? I do not remember Hessalam getting that range, I know Demandred did in AMoL, when he kept flinging balefire in the Last Battle. It might be a balance to the bridge thing that Rand thought getting to that Sea Folk ship in Cairhein. The fact that women could make far longer bridges with saidar.
  15. Except Dragonmount is more like Taranaki in New Zealand. There are no mountain ranges close to it. It is just like it came out of the ground, as opposed to the Maori legends which say otherwise. Dragonmount is closer to the Mountains of Mist, but still quite a distance. The Spine of the World-which is the Dragonwall's true name in the books-is further away from Dragonmount.
  16. Mary Poppins the original movie character was gifted by Verity Lambert because Walt Disney was a big fan of Doctor Who, and wanted to do a movie based on him.... Mary Poppins is the Doctor's wife and Susan's Grandmother. Of course, Walt went on to do Chitty Chitty Bang Bang using his male character inspired by the Doctor.
  17. Mat's part in the rescue was what allowed them to get her out. Mat's part to the Last Battle made it absolutely certain that the Pattern needed him, Thom and Jain to go in. Mat going in was not a mistake. It had to happen, or the Dark One and Demandred win.
  18. Which is great. The only other Trinity in anything besides Star Trek is DC's way more famous Trinity. To see a Fantasy variant because the Comic and Sci-Fi ones are awesome is a sign of respect and admiration. To see a fantasy equivalent play out is awesome, too.
  19. Or, more likely she is the Doctor's wife
  20. Then that makes the mirror world a nod to a sci-fi world . Perhaps the grolm are mutations of frogs, caused by use of technology like nuclear weaponry and the power plants melting down?? Maybe a parallel of Orson Scott Card's world between the First and Second Bugger Invasions which was weakened by the previous Trolloc Wars?? It has to be a sci-fi world that was on the brink of destruction. The only one that fits to me is the world where Ender comes from.
  21. The great battle done quote is Nicola Foretelling of Moridin holding Callandor. She is saying the Last Battle is won, but the Dark One has still to be dealt with, and Moridin now at that moment has Callandor.
  22. Four Kings is far too important of a moment to cut out though. That has to be in, and Rand suffering the aftereffects of that in the Barn needs to be included as well. That could be done in two or three episodes, but Mat's changes are important to his story and character later. That journey has to be shown.
  23. I started reading the series when I was 13, and never looked back. I consider the characters friends as well. You are not alone in feeling the loss of not seeing where the characters any more in new stories. As for The Wheel Of Time, it brought Epic High Fantasy back from death in the 80's, and turned it into the powerhouse book genre it is today. It is as influential as Watchmen is for comics.
  24. The Wheel would have still used Fain as a counterpoint to the Creator if the DO died, because of the issue of Balance. The Creator does not balance the DO. Rand has that purpose. Who balances Fain with that in mind? Mat is the answer to that question. Fain was just present in the story, because the Wheel took Rand's free will and right to choose into account. He just hung around too long, because Rand had to figure out the right choice in the right circumstances, something the battle with the DO actually showed. The very instant that was showed and he had decided, Mat killed Fain, because Rand had chosen a different course. Fain surviving any longer would have destroyed the Wheel , because the encounter was supposed to happen the way it did. Put Fain in there, what would Moiraine had done if Thom died. He was guarding the entrance to the Pit itself. One way this could have gone down is if for example, Rand cannot grab the DO, Moridin gets free, since Callandor functions as a male Adam requiring two women to control him, both sides of the One Power are tainted, leaving only Mat to stop Fain. If Moridin does not kill Mat first. One REALLY bad outcome. Actually I would say a complete disaster.
  25. Mat was needed because he has bargained with the snakes and foxes twice before, and knew how difficult they could be to agree to anything. Thom and Jain had zero chance of finding Moiraine, because they had never encountered the snakes and foxes before. The game only has the leavetaking, not the actual negotiations that have to happen. As a result their chances of escaping without Mat were below zero.
