    Lol! It’s a Pixar film. :P
  3. 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.
  4. Welcome to the Campfire

    The Campfire is a place were we can keep track of everyone's Rank within the Tuatha'an. When you join the group, you become a Tuatha'an. If you wish to stay at this level, you may! But, if you want more of a challenge, we will have ways for you to increase in Rank. Once you have completed a challenge within a Wagon, or a Beginner Challenge, or a Social Group Challenge, you must post in your thread with a link to your artwork or creation. Our Watcher of the Way of the Leaf--Chaelca--will record your accomplishments and keep your threads up to date with all your completed Challenges. If you have any questions, please PM Chaelca for help.

    Hrfanhildr, I re-did your siggy, just in case! <3 And for Kaylee....
  10. I'm re-reading the series and realized I didn't know where Moiraine disappeared to at the beginning of The Great Hunt. It's right after the first Darkfriend meeting--and we see several Aes Sedai and a Shainarin--so I think we're supposed to half-think Moiraine might be one of them. But, obviously she's not. Is she visiting other retired Aes Sedai, like when she later visits Aldaleas (sp?) and Vendane (sp?).
  11. DM News:Wheel of Time Wednesday

    Since the news of a potential Wheel of Time television series was released in April of 2016, right after JordonCon 8, we’ve all been waiting for news of the show’s progress. Last year, again, around JordanCon 9, we learned the rights had landed with Sony Pictures, and that Rafe Judkins was the lead writer and executive producer of the project. And earlier this year, in January, we had the first tweet from Judkins in relation to a possible Wheel of Time script. Considering we’ve waited two years just for those snippets, it seems almost like overload when we’ve seen several tweets from Jadkins over the past two months teasing Wheel of Time fans with pictures of assumedly-complete scripts for the first two episodes. At first, Jadkins began his tweets with #WheelofTimeMonday and shared a bit of his process that way. However, this quickly morphed to #WoTWednesday (which does have a better ring to it). In his latest tweet, sent out only a few days ago, Jadkins gave Mat fans something to look forward to: “And I give you — the second and last #WheelofTimeMonday. Because as everyone has so obviously pointed out — #WoTWednesday is 1000x better. I warned you I’m bad at social media. Also, Wheel of Time fans should rejoice because AK Shuman writes Mat like she was born to it.” Though “bad at social media” we hope Jadkins will give us regular updates. After so long with only tidbits to tide us over, I know the Wheel of Time community will love more news. You can see Jadkin’s other tweets and commentary at Bleeding Cool, the Wertzone, the Daily Trolloc, and IGN. View full news item
  12. Where did Moiraine go in Fal Dara?

    Yes! You're right! I got them confused. Alanna was with them. But I guess we don't know who the other Green sister is. Maybe Myrelle was in the area and Moraine went out to meet her somewhere in Shainar?
  13. 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!

  18. 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!
  19. 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!
  20. [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.
  21. 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?

  23. 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*
