  1. Personally, I was quite shocked reading Egwene's memory. She sounds so detached. As if she doesn't care whether Rand did something to be proud of or not. At least, the way I read it, she realized she is not proud of Rand's action that she's contemplating. For me, that doesn't bode well. As if she's going to decide to do something fully opposite to whatever Rand is going to suggest/plan.
  2. True Power or dreamspike True Power is a very good guess. The last remark says this is about Rand who is still crazy. Dreamspikes are not inherently evil but TP is. Using it will lead to ruination for sure. The dominion band? Because it the only way to link a crazy rand into a circle? And is in line with the two women - one man linking with a woman in control to work callandor? PS references got lost in editing
  3. Hmm, could be a cryptic reference to an orgiastic scene of Ogiers treesinging some plant and pollinating the ground in front of them. Well, that or Tuon "experimenting" with her body for the first time. Where I come from, this would refer to a man going blind, not a woman.... Usually yes, but other than Tuon there doesn't seem anyone "innocent" enough to make a joke out of it. Olver is a bit too young I think, he's what nine? Well, considering Olver's boob-obsession I'm not convinced that he's too young to explore anything. However, he wouldn't obviously have heard about the blindness side effects either. I'm musing on suitable males, but I have to admit there are not that many clear culprits around. In extension of the church, white cloaks seems likely. But Galad?????
  4. Tam and Cads - I could see that happening if they're not both dying in AMOL. I like old people finding soul mates. Other than that... Moridin and Egwene. She's really in desparate need of a real man, combining stunning looks and brains.
  5. Sharans? God I hope not... I thought maybe the red veiled aiel. Or simply the Saenchan? Hmm, could be a cryptic reference to an orgiastic scene of Ogiers treesinging some plant and pollinating the ground in front of them.

  6. I'm still undecided: I see Olver throwing open some big door/tent flap (watch the Heineken 500 bier ja commercial for proper side-effects) addressing either Birgitte (I mean, Gaidal would be waaaaaaaaaay too young to be anywhere near legal yet) or Cads...
  7. You forgot a less bloody option: nobody dies: it is the thought of one person in TAR (I'd guess Egwene), left behind after a crucial conversation with another person who just stepped out of TAR or at least moved place. The latter might be one of the aiel wise ones, Elayne, ...
  8. I think it's Eg to somebody, in my head it's said in a gentler way than how the Aiel speak. I thought exactly the same; how about Verin as a Hero in TAR? She would fit the old friend part, I'd say. Though, if it's in TAR there is absolutely no need that it involves anyone being dead. It just implies a physical distance between the two people, such that they only meet when in TAR.
  9. Not sure my last post got through: Never to do violence; with the Dutch soccer referee, who was kicked to death this weekend, in mind. I really don't mind lying that much. But... what about the choice between forcing all of us to swear: never to lie? never to forge weapons for others to use? - As background info: I'm living in Switzerland where people voted recently in favour of selling weapons to basically anyone able to pay, since it bolstered the national economy.
  10. Hmm, I've thought about it some more (like 5 whole wine-soaked minutes), and I think the whole situation with Tuon/Mat/Elaida extremely likely. The last we've seen of Tuon, she completely denies being a potential channeler herself. At the same time, she has seen from Joline and co how useful a warder bond can be if you want to control your pet. Thus, I believe it very likely that she'll try to bond Mat, and that it's equally likely that she will channel through a damane to do so. In those 5 minutes I've also realized I would be a horrible captured damane; it would take forever for me to remember my new name and my suldam would have to suffer through waves of indirect doubt: 'it was rosie, no, chica, no, kore, no, it rhymed with blabla...'
  11. true, I forgot about the medallion; truth be told, I would never ever take that off amongst a bunch of unpredictable seanchan... Though I could imagine that Tuon can trick him to take it off to show/protect her. I would actually love to read such a scene. I mean, what would you expect to happen when bonding someone with the adam?
  12. Either someone talking to Alanna- though at this point I think it's rather too late for one of them to take her bond over- or someone actually managed to bond Mat and Tuon wants it. Wow, imagine that Elaida spilled bonding as one of her secrets (though she might not even know how it is actually done), somehow bonds Mat through her suldam (Tuon?), and then Tuon demands the bond back! @memory 9 I hoped that after 13 books with a complete absence of reasonable communication, and a meeting set for the FOM, our hero's would finally realize that it's oh so practical to simply talk to each other... and then they're still sending letters right before the end of the world?!?!?
  13. Bonding didn't exist in the AOL, and I remember a scene where one or some of the forsaken remark(s) on how odd and inconvenient this invention seems to be for the AS herself (remember Semi's torture methods). I'm not so sure that Cyndane would want the bond willingly because of the same reasons, but she might be persuaded by Moridin. I'd rather imagine that Alviarin or another high-ranking black would press Alanna to pass Rand's bond.
  14. Really? I always had Androl as a 50+ person in mind.
