  1. You gotta remember though that the Creator determined from the beginning of time who could channel and who couldn't... Apparently there are a finite number of souls and everyone is simply reincarnated over and over, so it's not something to given or taken away...It's a part of who you are, not a physical characteristic, although apparently having the spark is genetic... remember the Ayyad women were only allowed to marry the sons of women who could channel, and look at Elayne...her mother and her paternal aunt (Moiraine) could channel.
  2. I disagree, simply because he made 3 books out of what RJ had only intended to be 1...RJ definitely had started dragging out the plot, but apparently the last book was supposed to be really action-packed Just going by the foreshadowing that was fulfilled in TGS and TOM, I'm not sure how it would all have fit into one book and include the Last Battle. Now, you could definitely make an argument for TGS and TOM being streamlined into one book, but you could say that about several books in the series. I remember RJ being quoted as saying it was gonna be 1 book even if Tor Books had to in
  3. Nynaeve got frelingd from ter'angreal, but it was non-specific...In KoD, it's revealed Aviendha can tell you exactly what one should do...Yes we know Elayne will eventually equal Egwene, but that's not useful right now...As for Egwene, several times we see her invent a weave on the spot (most notable is when they meet in TAR in book 13 and she invents a weave to trick someone into trying to eavesdrop, Elayne and Nynaeve look at her in amazement). I just meant her best moments didn't involve channeling...she goes into battle with other channelers twice, and is defeated both times by women
  4. Yes, that's what I meant by practical application...True, her potential matched Egwene, but Egwene was stronger right now, and hadn't reached her potential...It usually takes until about age 30 to do that, and apparently Egwene was already close to hers and wasn't 20 yet. That implies a big difference in actual strength. I guess third wheel wasn't a good way it put it, but its true that other than her unusual OP strength and her ter'angreal-making, most of her notable achievements weren't related to Channeling, and one things that add to that is, whenever the three of them were together, Eg
  5. Yeah, but don't u think it would be odd to work in tandem with someone today and have them bitterly oppose u tomorrow...(think LTT and Latra Posae, if u know who she is, apparently she was the Egwene of the AoL My guess us that was pretty common, since It's not uncommon to agree with someone on one issue and not on another. Also have to remember when the fight was being lost people would become more and more desperate probably tossing out wild ideas. This is off topic (sorry), but do u think if she (Latra) had gone along with LTT's plan that both saidin and saidar would've been tainte
  6. Yeah, but don't u think it would be odd to work in tandem with someone today and have them bitterly oppose u tomorrow...(think LTT and Latra Posae, if u know who she is, apparently she was the Egwene of the AoL
  7. Has anyone else noticed that although even though the Tower considered Elayne, Egwene, and Nynaeve to all be geniuses in things concerning the OP, Elayne seemed to be the least talented of the group? All three were remarkably strong and had different skills and weaknesses​, but somehow she had the short end of the stick when it came to practical application. Nynaeve was the strongest, able to match Moghedien in raw strength and trying with a past Amrylin as the strongest woman to call herself Aes Sedai since the AoL, only had to be shown a weave once, and was unmatched as a Healer amongst fe
  8. I always thought it was odd that he never mentioned anyone relieving themselves, but he mentions that Elayne's menstrual cycle had synchronized itself with Birgitte's... That was something I didn't really need/want to know...
  9. Thanks. I don't think be ever visited that site...It's not in my browser's bookmarks.
  10. It doesn't sound like the ajahs were defined groups the way they are now, more committees to deal with an issue and once that issues dealt with the group dissolve and join other groups or go it alone for a while I don't actually know anything about this though You're right, the groups were temporary. You're weren't permanently aligned with a particular group...Once a solution was reached on whatever this issue was, they went their separate ways and when they next came together, it might be for a different purpose, and some of the original members may be a part of an Ajah that opposes th
  11. Yeah. That sounds like the same as in the 3rd Age, except with Aes Sedai who basically changed Ajahs whenever it suited their purpose, imagine if Nynaeve chose to be Green when it came to decision that affected her personally, but Green @ other times, or Egwene choosing to Blue when dealing with the Hall, but Green the test of the time...Sounds even worse and more complicated than the 3rd Age system, never knowing who was siding eith who on what day of the week...I think Leane was the only person to have done it since the founding of the White Tower.
  12. They did...at one point one of the male Forsaken (I don't remember which one) made a comment about the Ajahs (it was in lowercase caps, so I'm guessing it means something in the Old Tongue), saying in so many words that they were pretty much the same as in the AoL. He meant it as a compliment, but the was speaking of the political machinations and manipulateness of the current Aes Sedai.
  13. You could still have been white...Lanfear was.. I think most of the others were Green...Mesaana and Moghedien were Brown... Demandred, Lews Therin, and Sammael were Green... Semirhage and Graendal were Yellow...I don't know about Be'lal or Balthamel. I don't think Asmodean was Aes Sedai, even though he was a powerful channeler, and his mom was Aes Sedai... Everyone was tested @ 10 yrs old during the AoL, so I don't think there were wilders. Imagine it.. Channeling was probably taught in school, probably like classes for "gifted" students or something... As a side note, IRL most people tha
  14. Actually, I like Alanna...I'd would be a Green myself if I were Aes Sedai. I've always thought, some of the Ajah felt that the real world as chess pieces. Green live their lives (they marry, and some even have children). But living your live includes making mistakes. .
  15. Does anyone else here like fanfiction? I love it...I've recently found some on Tumblr, of all places...There is a guy whose screenname is Tedronai, and he's written the best I've ever read by far. I wish he'd been the one to finish the WoT. He's currently got a story in progress about a high school boy who's a WoT fan and discovers he has the spark. He has a female friend who he discovers is also a wilder...The guy discovers he's also a Dreamer, and meets a guy in TAR who is a mercenary and is being chased by people who are like a modern-day Black Ajah, but they find ANYONE that channel . Of
  16. Stunning. Magnificent. Gorgeous. TOR should hire you. Gorgeous...A labor of love...
  17. They probably let it go over the sides of the bridges and it falls into infinity....
  18. I don't inflate her importance... Actually, aside from her connection to Rand, I feel like she wasn't very important at all, other than her contribution to Perrin's campaign in the Two Rivers. Verin was a much more important character. ..She was very mysterious, and some of her actions were turning points in the book, such as supplying Egwene with the dream ter'angreal and accompanying notes from the last Dreamer in the Tower, and committed suicide to real her connection to the Black Ajah and pass along her 70 years of notes. I've always felt that she did all of this because of the Aes Sedai,
  19. I disagree, simply because he made 3 books out of what RJ had only intended to be 1...RJ definitely had started dragging out the plot, but apparently the last book was supposed to be really action-packed
  20. I'm not angry at either one of them simply because it's not like there was not personal risk involved for either of them, and it wasn't done for selfish reasons. The fate of their entire space/time continuum was Rand's hands...Verin herself spent 70 years as an undercover member of the Black Ajah, then took her own life just to get around her Oaths to the DO...It's like Egwene's spirit told Rand when they were outside the Pattern...let others have their heroic moment too...Rand dying before The Last Battle would've made all their sacrifices meaningless. Rand was kinda lost, and looked to the P
  21. What she did was wrong, yes, but if she hadn't, Elaida's plan would've worked because no one would've known where to find hi when he was kidnapped...Which would've led to him being taken to the Tower, where I'm sure he would've been welcomed by Alviarin and Mesaana....I think being involuntarily bonded to Alanna was definitely the lesser of the 2 evils
  22. I'd be willing to bet money RJ would've explored these things if he hadn't passed...The Outrigger series?
  23. Yeah, you even have a Rand and a Nynaeve, I guess you would say...The Sword of Truth has a sort of Rand/Elayne thing going, and I've read one more series by a woman named G.R R. Martin that has an incredibly powerful young mage who is accompanied by a young woman who is a mage with an incredible talent for healing.The guy even cleanses their source of magic when it's tainted by evil...the source of their power is even called the Flow...Even though it was a complete rip-off it was a good story... There are even several times in the book were they link their powers to do things no one mage was s
  24. Exactly...TAR and the real world intersect there... Imagine if u and I were in the same home, but standing on opposite sides of a wall... You'd be able to hear me, but not see me..in order for u to see me, we'd both have to be standing in a spot where we were "lined up" with the "doorway", so to speak...Imagine if someone had channelled open a gateway into TAR, which we know Rand, Egwene, and the Forsaken know how to do, except the doorway drilled all the way through into the DO's prison. Creates a problem, right? How do u close the gateway when the DO is trying to hold it open? We know also
