  1. So I'll be picking my copy up tomorrow... how terrifying. I've started the Eye of the World 20 years ago, when I was 9. I don't really remember a time when I wasn't waiting for the next book. This series has been one of the biggest parts of my development. I know a lot of us here feel the same way. To see an ending, Jordan's ending despite his sickness and death, is a wonderful thing. But for there not to be a next book? To know there will never be another awesome Rand chapter, or even an annoying Elayne chapter? Inconceivable.
  2. Depending on purchase place I would imagine so.
  3. Mat and Toun I mostly enjoyed... but the Succession? I'd think a mass of men learning to channel and being tainted is a tad more important. I'm with you on this one.
  4. I'm almost there... I'm on Whitebridge.
  5. Exactly. They're linked and trying to manipulate/awe him. Not anything to the level of compulsion, but sort of the way the coin token was supposed to make the boys more amenable to Moiraine, just making him more agreeable/accepting of what they have to say. You can see it in the way he acts, almost giving in and then rebounding back.
  6. For some strange reason pretty much every single time I get into a bath I think: "Ara had made the water hot enough that settling in was a slow process of luxuriant sighs." And my favorite quote of all, the one I can't read without getting manly chills of pure asskickery: On a day of fire and blood, a tattered banner waved above Dumai's wells, bearing the ancient symbol of Aes Sedai. On a day of fire and blood and the one power, as prophecy had suggested, the unstained tower, broken, bent knee to the forgotten sign. The first nine Aes Sedai swore fealty to the Dragon Reborn, and the world was changed forever.
  7. 1001 Things to do in a Vacuole. Elayne's Red Rod. (18+) Ara: Bath Attendant of the Stars.
  8. I've always taken that as something changed when the series grew, like the appearance of traveling in the EotW prologue.
  9. Again, Min's visions aren't foretellings. She doesn't see the future, she sees auras and pieces of the pattern. She sees seven ruined towers for Lan... the towers are already ruined. The viewing for Thom is what you find out later to be his driving motivation for helping the boys, his nephew and the White Tower. A Man juggling fire might reference Rand, or Mat's fireworks... but it doesn't. This was a very early viewing in the first book, and one of the few that show something other than a glimpse of what's in store for a character. Saying the viewing refers to something other than the major facet of Thom's past which we later find is what leads to him entwining himself with the boys repeatedly when the viewing matches that perfectly doesn't make any sense.
  10. The kneeling bit is fake. Ishy edited the Seanchan prophecies to tell them the Dragon had to submit to the Crystal Throne or there would be disaster so that they would not submit to him instead and be an aid.
  11. I'd imagine with Thom's history the man juggling fire is either his nephew. Min's visions arn't foretellings, she just sees pieces of the pattern. Thom's driving influences are a man juggling fire (His nephew) and the White Tower (who gentled his nephew). I've never seen anyone connect these to Mat. o_O
  12. Traveling in the prologue of EotW. While the most description is given to Ish we've seen TP traveling and this isn't it, and LTT seems to be shown traveling instantly and without a gateway as well.
  13. Canton, OH here. AIM: zmknightz YIM: zshadez
  14. Or we could answer it the easier way.... if you haven't noticed, the Whitecloaks assume pretty much everything is shadowspawn/darkfriend.
