  1. It's all down to the Pattern.  In The Great Hunt, Verin says, "With ta'veren, what happens is what was meant to happen.  It may be the Pattern demanded these extra days.  The Pattern puts everything in its place precisely, and when we try to alter it, especially if ta'veren are involved, the waving changes to put us back into the Pattern as we were meant to be."  (Chapter 44, Five Will Ride Forth)


    If they'd tried to rescue Moiraine at any other time, the Pattern would not have accepted it.  Moiraine knew this from either her trip into the ter'angreal, or from her trip into Rhuidian (sp?).  I can't recall because I'm only at The Great Hunt on my reread.  That was why she made Thom wait until Mat asked.  She knew it was their only chance for success.

    You got: the Junk Lady

    You're a hoarder and you have trouble keeping your hands to yourself.

    You got: Sir Didymus

    You are feisty, determined, and incredibly brave. You never turn down a challenge and you will fight any battle until the very end.



    And for Kaylee....



  3. 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!

    Things are not always what they seem.

    A good way to look at a lot of experiences in life, I think.

    The Sarah at the beginning is childish, a bit spoiled, and only becomes capable of this through what she faces and learns along the way.

    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.

    the destination may change because of the journey


    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.

    No lesson can be educational and entertaining without conflict of some sort.


    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*
