  1. If you remember, Dylin didn't want to be queen, she wanted Elayne to be queen. I don't see why everyone digs into Elayne so badly, she is pretty impetuous to say the least, and she has done some things that annoy me, but fighting for a throne that is hers? Arymilla is responsible for the deaths of those Andorans, not Elayne. Maybe it's a bit off topic, but yes, I do remember that Dyelin didn't want to be queen. Do you remember that she was going to take the throne anyway when Elayne didn't show up at first? She would easily have had her 10 houses without all the bloodshed. Ask yourself, would Elayne really make a better queen than Dyelin? If Trakand had chosen to support Dyelin, Elayne could always be advisor. Plus, ruling a country isn't about "fighting for a throne." The kingdom is not a plaything to be owned. I don't necessarily hold Elayne responsible for those deaths, but I do think they would have been prevented if Elayne had let Dyelin become queen. I've been frustrated with Ny too, plenty of times. But when it comes down to character, far from having a 'poor character', she has one of the best.
  2. That makes PERFECT sense because of course, it's not like Rand or Lan have brains or can think for themselves, so let's just dump the entire blame on Nynaeve >:(, who by the way is one of the few characters who STILL cares about all the Emond's Fielders, does not manipulate everybody within arm's reach, and is still a sincere person Nynaeve is annoying sometimes. Yes. But her faults are so trivial compared to the good she does that it just amazes me when people are so willing to overlook that and get straight to the Nynaeve-bashing rants. Want to complain about people? Fine. How about Egwene, who turned so cold and manipulative that she even admits she can no longer relate to her old self? How about Elayne, demanding the throne, getting thousands of Andorans killed because she can't have Dyelin as queen, and being a complete idiot throughout her pregnancy? How about Perrin, who once was a decent guy until Faile messed him up? Why do you think Nynaeve was the only person Rand would link with to cleanse saidin? She is one of the few trustworthy people left. Also, about Ebou Dar, remember that Nynaeve was the only one who wanted to go back to get Mat during the Seanchan invasion.
  3. Gaidal should have been spun out as Elayne and Rand's kid, just to add to the already messed-up state of relationships...
  4. yes, I suppose Lan is a little old *sigh* I'd pick him anyway ;D
  5. Ishy, hands down, but Semirhage runs a close second
  6. LAN! lan lan lan lan lan 'nuff said... Mat is fun and lovable, but Lan is the man to take home at the end of the day "I will hate the man you choose because he is not me, and love him if he makes you smile. No woman deserves the sure knowledge of widow's black as her bride price, you least of all." :'( I hope he lives through AMoL
  7. But Emond's Field is much more demcratic than, say, Andor...so after living in that setting, I would have thought Rand and the others would be aginst monarchies. It's true that they knew the monarchies existed, but isn't it weird to suddenly switch from democracy to monarchy? They were already used to a more democratic system.
  8. Emond's Field is run by a group of men (name?), the Women's circle, and the mayor, right? So Rand and company have basically been raised around a governing system kind of like a semi-democracy/republic. Even the White Tower has a system of electing representatives, and the Amyrlin does not have absolute power. So why are all the characters okay with the monarchy stuff? ??? Rand goes around claiming places (yes, I know he's the Dragon and all...) and everyone's cool with Elayne becoming queen. Why? I would assume they wouldn't like the idea of kings and queens.
  9. alanna has been going through hell ever since she bonded Rand...good, she DESERVES it
  10. Egewne would have been roadkill without Siuan as mentor.
  11. I disagree. "Heavy-handedness" had nothing to do with Siuan's downfall. Any other Amyrlin in her place would only have gone down faster. Keep in mind that if Siuan and Moir had not done all their secret plans, Rand and the others would probably be dead. She basically played a big part in saving the world ;) . Siuan is aMAZing. If I was Aes Sedai and had Egwene for Amyrlin, I'd slap her and then quit. ::) right on...that inflated little head of hers needs to be toned down
  12. I definitely think Mat and Rand could be friends again. I'm not so sure about Perrin...mostly because of Faile. I don't think she helps their chances.
  13. but she knew it was going to happen (or at least that it was very likely) when she wrote those letters I still don't understand why Moir did not pass the bond directly to Ny...come on, don't tell me she doesn't want to break the rules....balefire is not exactly encouraged by the Tower either, ya know?
  14. ooh, I like it, very nice ring at the end: or you will be knelt lol, I can imagine some cartoon bad guy saying that... ;D Mojo jojo: Kneel or you will be knelt!
  15. *grimacing* I thing I have a problem with the letter "g" The first time I read the name Egwene I somehow sort of replaced the g with an r...(I know, I'm just weird ;))...and my version comes out something like Arwen but with more of an E sound than A at the beginning...don't ask me how I did the same thing with Egeanin...I sort of dropped the g...oops ;D
  16. pretty funny...I was watching Naruto this morning, and Neji Hyuga said this ;) and I thought of this quote
  17. How do you pronounce Egwene? ??? I'm not going to tell you the way I say it, becaue it's not remotely like "Egwene". ;D
  18. Have a little spirit ;) I would love to see Malkier rise...it's a possibility isn't it? Look at how many people are willing to fight for Lan and the Golden Crane.
  19. Yes, this bugs me too Actually, while we're on that subject, the Warders seem to take it very well. I don't think I've seen jealousy between an Aes Sedai's warders. They work together very well, and I can only assume they must be friends. They're basically together all the time. very weird :o
  20. Egwene has devoted herself entirely to the White Tower. She sees herself as the Amyrlin Seat and nothing else. She cannot even relate to the Emond's Field girl she used to be because she has become a cold and manipulative woman. (I'm not saying some of it wasn't necessary, but she has changed too much.) I think Egwene is too far gone to be anybody's friend anymore. I do have hope for the others though.
  21. Hmm...they probably come back half-dead from TG injuries, and Ny saves their lives. How's that for barbecue conversation. Clearly, you haven't made an effort to get to know Nynaeve. And your idea of "great friends" is rather laughable. Egwene, with her stole, haughty and full of herself. Elayne, with her crown, (and throne dragged along just for good measure) and nose stuck in the air. Egwene and Rand wary of each other. Perrin and Mat wary of both. Tuon itching to leash the Dragon and Amyrlin. Oh yes, that sounds like great fun.
  22. they need that share-the-love party, seriously! :P For having such great methods of communication (i.e. TAR, Traveling), they sure do a sucky job lettin' each other know what's going on hehe, this one truly gets me
