About Serenla

  • Birthday 01/01/1
  1. Playing devil's advocate, eh? Okay, I'll give it a shot. There are quite a few reasons why Elayne’s “plan” was a dumb one, starting with the fact that she didn’t actually take the time to make a plan. She acted on impulse with her motivation for moving fast being that her Warder would try to stop her from doing it. If she knew that Birgitte would see this as a bad idea, would that not clue her in to the fact that it may be dangerous? Why was it dangerous? Start with the fact that if it would be believable that one of the Forsaken would visit one of the Black Ajah in Elayne’s d
  2. p80 He'd lost the unconsciously slumped posture that many young men adapted, particularly the tall ones. I think that adapted should be adopted.
  3. I can't stand Faile. For me it's bad enough that she is still a teenager and thinks she knows better than everyone else about everything. (Yes, this is common in the series and of many teenagers and twenty somethings too) But Faile tops off this undesirable attitude with manipulating people. I could forgive this behavior if it was only people like Alliandre and Rolan, she doesn't owe them anything. But she doesn't stop at that, she manipulates Perrin and Loial to get her way. When this is added to the fact that her own husband thinks that she "keeps close purse strings on the truth", she
  4. For me, the reason why what the Seanchan do to women who can channel is different from putting a collar on the Forsaken is simple. Moghedien was scared and shamed and kept against her will, like any other prisoner would be. The damane on the other hand are as a rule brainwashed and tortured until they believe that they are less than human and deserving of being treated as dangerous animals. The reason why the Egwene and Teslyn and others hate the Seanchan so much is because they know that if they had remained in the adam even a few more days or weeks then they would have lost their sense of
  5. I am not really sure how i feel about the Aiel. They have good and bad qualities. They are honest and honorable and hard working and so on, but they are also crazy. They offer to let people kill and or beat them when they make a mistake. How weird is that? However i find their victories over wetlanders believable. In the Aiel war, they had the numbers and the element of surprise on their side. Throughout the books, there are comments made about the size of the armies and how compared to what Rand gathers armies are small. The 4 clans coming out of the waste would have been huge com
  6. Rand can't fix himself in TAR. Egwene shows this when she went to Salidar in TAR in the flesh. She had just got strapped and she made it go away so she could sit a horse, but as soon as she left, her sore bottom came back.
  7. I don't think that surrender is necessarily easier than fighting. Look at all the trouble Nynaeve has with surrendering... I think that it depends on when you start to learn and what type of person you are. I am a very uptight person and would find it easier to fight that to completely surrender. I can't even fall asleep easily because I don't like to give up control.
  8. I think it's your favorite too. :PI'm not convinced, I think Serenla is a closet Crossroads of Twilight fan. Now why you gotta go and tell all my secrets? :o
  9. So, how many stories from the Age of Legends involve that particular ter'angreal malfunctioning? Enough to keep people listening to the stories? But not so many that they would suck all the fun out of the idea of using it?
  10. No, Mordeth is a wholly separate entity to the Taint. Mordeth was the last survivor of Shadar Logoth, and he merged with Fain but was unable to take him over. Eventually they settled into one very crazy man. Fain/Mordeth was at Fal Dara, the dagger was with Mat. You may have a point that it was Mordeth's evil that Aginor was refering to rather than Mordeth himself. I tend to think of them as the same though because Fain thinks of the evil in the dagger as being part of himself and making him complete.
  11. I think it's your favorite too. :P Ya think? I'm really not sure. Sometimes it's like Rand and his girls, I love em all the same... ;)
  12. Awesome! Now you can read Knife of Dreams, which I think is my favorite. ;D
  13. I was implying a question: How do different people experience different things with those 3? Sentient things are capable of perception. Different experiences for different people, that could be an indicator of perception. The fear shower reads thoughts, that seems unlikely. Nynaeve & Egwene seemed to be unaware of their experiences before they entered. There are a couple of reasons why I think that the fear shower makes a person experience thoughts. One is the fact that Nynaeve made the arch come back. Nynaeve had no real trust for Aes Sedai at this point, so what they
  14. After this life he may be, but I don't think that Mat was tied to the Wheel before it. I am very sure that Aginor is refering to Mordeth. The evil that he created in Shadar Logoth is old and something that corrupts as much as that city does would be a friend to evil people as well as an enemy since the evil was directed to the Shadow. Most of the "extra" memories Mat has come from the Finns, with maybe a couple from the "Old Blood". And Birgitte says that when she is born normally she doesn't remember who she is anyways. The main reason I don't think that Mat is tied to the
  15. In the Fires of Heaven News Comes to Cairhien a little more than half way through, Mat brings this up. Elayne chose to ignore Mat because she thinks that Andor has queens not kings, so she doesn't understand what Gaebril's motivation to kill her would be. Since she can't think of a good motivation, she decides Mat is mistaken or exaggerating. So mostly Mat is ignored due to having low credibility with the wondergirls and their own arrogance.
