  1. Thom is in his sixties or seventies in the current place in the novels. So no, he's not a youngin'. He was in his fifties when he had Morgase in his lap. And his bed.
  2. Really, none of those make sense to me. Mat and Demandred? There's no evidence (at least I don't think so) that Mat's ter'angreal even works against saidin, and Mat is far from something as archetypal as the Light General, he simply commands the Band of the Red Hand. No evidence whatsoever that he'll be having any sort of 1v1 confrontation with any Forsaken. Nynaeve and Moghedien, maybe. There's obviously grudges and hatred there, but Moridin's firm reign on Moghedien may very well keep her from playing any major role whatsoever in AMoL. Tuon vs Aran'gar? That came out of nowhere. I don't even remember Aran'gar trying to kill Mat. No, I seriously doubt Tuon will be having any sort of duel with any channeler, especially considering her hatred of and refusal to channel, herself. Aviendha and Graendal; again, what? They haven't even had any contact with each other. Not once, in all the books. What makes you think they will in AMoL, especially a confrontation that would turn into some kind of duel? Fain vs Slayer vs Perrin; refresh my memory, what animosity does Fain have towards Slayer, if any?
  3. Yes, I know Tom Welling has been suggested a lot for Perrin, but he's too tall for that role. Way too tall. Perrin's not short, but he's supposed to appear stocky because of his broad shoulders, and Welling just LOOKS tall.
  4. I'll be sure to check out some of your work. Welcome. :)
  5. I don't think people hate them so much as they get frustrated with some of their stupider decisions, their more annoying aspects of their personality, etc. Perrin's blind obsession with Faile for one thing. It's frustrating seeing him willing to sacrifice thousands of lives just so he can save a half dozen people. Love or not, it's irresponsible. Of course, in the end it all works out, since he managed to defeat all of the Shaido in the process, ridding their presence from the continent. Except for the small contingent with Therava and Galina, of course, but still. Each of the characters have certain aspects that I find incredibly obnoxious; Perrin's obsession (as I already said), Rand's brainless chivalry, every single woman character's arrogance and sexism, Mat's constant denial of who he is, etc etc. Doesn't mean I don't love the story, though. :P
  6. So I was reading through the FAQ on wotmania.com for the first time today. Real fascinating stuff. Anyway, I was reading this topic, and it really made me think of how it would tie off in AMoL. Obviously RJ wouldn't add in this whole conspiracy for no reason, so my theory is this: Mat and Thom rescue Moiraine, Moiraine tells Thom who was involved in the illegal gentlings that most likely included his nephew, Owyn. Thom erupts in a righteous fury, so to speak, somehow makes it into Tar Valon, somehow assassinates Elaida, thus ending the seige and break in the Tower. Obviously that's the short-and-sweet, and I have a feeling that it'll be a bit more detailed and complicated than that. But it does make sense to me. RJ never seems to just add something for the heck of it, so Owyn's gentling should be solved in AMoL, especially considering Moiraine's promise to tell Thom who was responsible: "I will tell you the names of those Red sisters when I see you next, as well as the name of the one who gave them their orders. They did not act on their own."
  7. For Rand, the only person that I could possible see playing him is Tom Welling. He's got the build, he's got the height, he's got the age. All he needs is the hair and he's good to go. You guys have to remember that Rand is 6'5-ish, around 240 lbs. He's not your average joe when it comes to size, like so many actors are. I'd love to volunteer myself for Rand, since I'm 6'5", 240, myself, but that'd be getting a little full of myself. xD But then, tbh, if (and they probably will never do so) they make a movie, it'd be smartest to choose three brand new actors, never before heard of to play the three main roles (Rand, Mat, Perrin). The three leading ladies might very well have to be brand new, as well.
  8. You stole mine. :( That's a saying that I've tried to adapt into my life. Though the first time I heard it was Elayne, reflecting on one of Lini's sayings. However, it's been repeated several times throughout the books. I believe one of the Aes Sedai (can't think of which one) changed it around a bit to rhyme: "What cannot be cured must be endured." Though I like the original more. I've always detested rhyming when it comes to sayings like that. xD
  9. All common questions to ask. Can't be a gholam, because he says "You?" as if he recognizes the person about to kill him. A gholam is a creature, and Asmodean most likely would not have said "You?" as he would to a person he recognizes. He most likely would have just screamed, just said "No!" etc. Can't be Aran'gar, because, again, it has to be someone he recognized, enough for him simply recognizing them to cause fear. He'd never met Aran'gar, and thus could not have recognized her.
  10. Welcome. Andorans are boring. :)
  11. All depends on where the forum's server is located. If in America, the forum's should follow all of America's laws. Or whichever country. But copyright usually only extends as far as the marketing and commercializing of copyrighted material. Usage and modification of copyrighted material for personal use is nearly always fine.
  12. Two and a half hours. I used to be a forum junkie but I've slowed down a lot recently. Was an admin on my clan's forums for about six months, and so I was pretty much on those whenever I had time to sit at a computer (which was a lot).
  13. Now, this could very well mean that Rand dies, or there's a body swap et cetera, et cetera, but has anyone actually taken the time to think it through? Many of the prophecies such as this are cryptic, and don't mean what they mean on the surface. My theory is this: to live, you must destroy who you are. The death of the soul, or the death of the personality of oneself is something that is pretty common in all sorts of poetry and things of the sort. It could very well be taken to mean that Rand must eradicate the person he has built himself to be--the hard, emotionless rock--so that he can live at Tarmon Gai'don. Min told Rand that he needs Cadsuane to teach him something, and Cadsuane says at one point that she is determined to teach him to laugh and cry again. As soon as Rand relearns to accept emotion--happiness, sadness, grief for the dead, joy for the living--it could be said that the man he was has died, could it not? He would have been reborn. And it is only through this rebirth that he can hope to live at Tarmon Gai'don. Obviously my theory has holes in it. But it's an interesting line of thinking.
  14. Unlikely, really. A gateway isn't a weapon because it's not something that is directly harming an individual person. Unless of course they're using Rand's special Deathgates.
