  1. I always think of it as being akin to joining the military. You have to put up with a lot of crap that may suck, but in the end you are stronger for it (mentally and physically).
  2. Harden the air around them, and slit their throats. Harden the air in their lungs or around their heads. Rend the earth under their feet. Reverse some healing weaves and see what they do (but you may have to touch the enemy for this one). Go Kamikaze and Unravel a weave in their midst and see what happens (may turn out like the A-Bomb after the girls use the Bowl of the Winds). I'm going to stop now before people start to wonder :) Send out a strong weave of compulsion and see what happens (the books mention that if it is too strong it will harm). Ahhh... I cant stop.
  3. I wouldn’t say Jordan’s world is any more violent than our own. Both worlds are capable of extraordinary kindness and cruelty. The means to the ends are just different. So than the question is… does that make our world very violent? Back to the point, I believe the book will end with a peaceful or somewhat neutral time. After all, the book already has a history of peaceful times, violent times, and times that fall between the two.
  4. So, I have read the books several times- the EotW the most. I have also listened to the audio books. One part always nags at me. When Thom, Mat, and Rand are in Whitebridge and Thom saves the boys from the myrddraal a blue flash is described. Later, when Lan, Moraine, and Nynaeve reach Whitebridge there are several houses burned (none of which stand next to each other), and they hear a rumor of the “trouble” being caused by a man channeling. I am convinced someone channeled. I do not think it was anyone on the fade’s side. You would assume that if a darkfriend (that could channel) or forsaken where there the boys would not have escaped. They would have used their channeling skills to catch them as opposed to involving their selves in the Fade/Thom fight. It also could not have been Rand, because he did not stick around to burn several buildings to the ground. All arrows are pointing to Thom. The problem is Thom is hardly insane. However, his nephew could channel, and it has been mentioned in the books that channeling might be hereditary (statements about culling the ability out of people by stilling men who can channel... and then the men die... no breeding). If not Thom…. Then who? I searched the forum for similar topics to this one. Here is what I found: In the Moraine – Case Closed thread: “P.S. Also, I like michelob’s idea of Tom channeling. It would explain his frustration with the Red Ajah not giving his nephew enough time to deal with it and also his survival from the Murdrahl in Whitebridge.” – posted by Jeff from MI “Thom can't channel. If he could, he would be either a sparker, and thus long since gone mad and wasted away, and died, or a learner, in which case what started him channeling? It's not easy for a learner to self teach, and why would Thom go to the effort? In short, WRONG. Not a good total. Most of this stuff is flat out wrong. And other things can explain his survival, other than something which we have no evidence of.” - Posted by Mr Ares “Concerning Thom and the myrddraal, when he deflected the myrddraal's blow with his knives, there was a blue flash similar to the one witnessed in Lan's sword fight with them near Shadar Logoth in tEotW, indicating that, like Lan's heron mark blade, Thom's knives may well be Power-wrought. That would go a long way toward explaining his survival.” – Posted by Gentled Ben I have tried to find the post Jeff from MI references as michelob’s. However, I cannot find it. Have at her…… be nice! ;)
  5. Langston Hughes wrote a book called Laughing to Keep from Crying. This is also a saying (I am not sure which came first). I feel Rand laughed at the "bend over" moments of his life because if he didn't he would emotionally break. I have personally had bad days, moments, etc. when all I could do was give a little maniacal chuckle, put my head down, and trudge through it. Personally, I think this stops/lessens later in the books because Rand is becoming numb to emotion (which Caddy hopes to remedy).
  6. I think it will be great. A month ago I would have said it would be o.k. I had only read Elantris (by Sanderson) up until that time. It was a good read, but I wouldn't have recommended it to a friend. However, now that I have read Mistborn and the Well of Ascension (both by Sanderson) I think it will be GREAT. I would place those two books second in line to my favorite reads. The WOT being the first. I am totally psyched.
  7. Mat’s realization that Tuon is his wife…. Mat holding down and spanking an Aes Sedai’s butt while others look on and can’t stop him…. I have others, but they aren’t coming to mind. The butt spanking has to be my all time favorite.
  8. Light is a common metaphor for GOOD, HOPE, and GOD. Because of that metaphor... I always think of it as meaning A Memory of Good/Hope/God (like good/hope/God is gone)... which could be bad... because I want a happy ending. However, that is always how I first perceive the title (even though I do not like it).
  9. The party stocked the shoreline of the island. Many were well rehearsed at keeping their heads down, but the dwarf -to his companions’ horror- might as well have not even attempted the feat. He might as well have bellowed "Dragon! Here we be!" Marlow Vanderhof crept along the shadowed perimeter of the forest, just up the beach from his cohorts. He had been drawn to this area by a bush that looked unnaturally shaded. As he ghosted next to the shrub, he recognized one of the hired soldiers that had been with them earlier. During the initial attack many of the hired soldiers had been slayed from one deep, exhaling breath from their dragon foe. Fewer still had run for cover. This lad, for he was barely a man, lay still in what appeared to be shock. The companions circled around the poor boy. Boedin, the cleric, laid one hand on his head. Grasping her crystalline holy symbol with her other hand, she prayed to palor to heal the young man. Soon, the boy's trembling slowed and then stopped. Once regrouped, the party prepared their magical armor. The mage cast a spell of fire protection on each of her companions. Lastly, Boedin- with the help of her God- summoned forth a hero’s feast. ALL partook of this beneficial meal; feeling stronger, more confident, blessed. Later, inside the dragon's lair, the poor boy disappeared. All the companions thought the boy had lost his nerve. However, only a few short moments later, behind a pile of crumbling rock, they found the poor soul's body. The cleric rushed to the young man's side. As she inspected his health, her determined visage turned into a perturbed frown. The boy was cold as ice. Dead for hours at the least....................
  10. I laugh too...but as a woman... I laugh at the men (mostly). I agree with you completely.
  11. I want the book, and then I want the notes.
  12. Is her ability to pick apart weaves considered a talent, or is it one of those "little" tricks?
  13. There is a WOT video game!?!?!? What system is it for? When did it come out? Tell me more!
  14. I would like to watch a miniseries about the WOT. I think this would be the best way to tell the most in depth story. However, my fear is that I would enjoy the show.. get hooked... and then it would get cancelled.
  15. Sheriam, maybe? (Although she's not literally in the Tower at that point...) Is there any proof that Sheriam is black ajah, or is this just a theory? I don't remember reading anything definite about this, but I know some suspect she is.
