    Where did Moiraine go in Fal Dara?

    Myrelle is one of the sisters who comes to Fal Dara with the Amyrlin. They could have chatted then. Though I doubt it because the Greens and the Blues are fighting (Greens have been backing the Reds in the Hall). Or maybe Moraine was sneaky enough to meet Myrelle in secret, then. But there definitely wasn't enough time for Moraine to go to Tar Valon. The Amyrlin's party traveled nearly a month, and that was with the ship and calling on the winds to speed them up. I may have to email Maria Simons and see what she knows! It's gonna bug me!

  6. This is a thread to discuss the Labyrinth movie. Rhea and I will re-watch the film tonight (about 7pm eastern time), and we'll post as we go through. I'm going to give a spoiler warning right away! DON'T READ THIS THREAD IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE FILM! We might talk about all sorts of things as we're watching it. Read at your own risk! And add your own thoughts, even if you're not re-watching it with us!
  7. Going on now in Tar Valon, we are talking about the movie Labyrinth (starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly). We have games, discussions, and character quizzes! Come play and have fun with us!
  8. I feel this idea of journey before destination is a large part of the fantasy genre. How does it tie into the film "The Labyrinth"? Let's take a look.... When Sarah first enters the labyrinth, she runs into a worm. The worm gives her advice with navigating the labyrinth, and sends her on her way. As Sarah goes down one way, the worm tells her, "Don't go that way! Never that way!" Sarah goes the opposite. After Sarah leaves, the worm says, "If she'd 'ave kept on goin' down that way she'd 'ave gone straight to that castle." This is so interesting to me. What would have happened if Sarah had gone straight to the castle? Would she have had the power and resources to take Toby back from Jareth? Or was the long way there the thing that saved her in the end? This trope happens many, many times in films and books. It seems as if the character needs to the do the opposite before being able to meet their goal. Or the character must be betrayed in order to be saved in the end. One time in particular is within The Wheel of Time itself! Here's a quote from Brandon Sanderson: So, is the journey through the labyrinth more important than the destination?

    [White Ajah Fantasy Week] Journey Before Destination Discussion

    A good way to look at a lot of experiences in life, I think. Yes, this is true, too! She grows a ton over the few hours she's in the labyrinth, as shown by how she begins to pack up her toys and books and plays when she's back in the real world. I also love this idea, that the bad things that happen can be what brings us to salvation in the end. It kinda ties in with the Tao Te Ching, where it talks about negative space is just as important as positive space. You need both in balance to have a happy life.

  11. I didn't know any of those facts! Not Henson specifically, but I do remember hearing about Frank Oz and his feud with Marlon Brando. Apparently, Brando didn't want to take directions from a man who voiced a puppet pig. *lol*

    [White Ajah Fantasy Week] Journey Before Destination Discussion

    That's true. I'm re-reading The Great Hunt and it's funny how many times the destination they're going to changes. SO many different things change as Rand, Mat, and Perrin keep growing and becoming more ta'veren. Excellent point! I always fantasized about how The Little Mermaid would have gone if she'd listened to her father and stopped thinking about the human world. Probably be a very boring movie. *lol*

    [White Ajah Fantasy Week] Labyrinth Movie Watch-a-Long

    Yes! Though I’m afraid I got a different message as a child. I totally gravitated toward a handsome villain willing to give the woman he loves powers. Not the best mindset growing up. Kinda damaging for my early relationships. Lol! Luckily I grew out of it.
