About A Trite Pun

  1. I finally figured two things out and wanted to share. In APOD, Elayne is examining the ter'angreal found in Ebou Dar. One is a rod that makes her think of Fire: "She was alone; since the helmet, she had tried to do her studying away from the others. The heat of the rod made her think of Fire... Blinking, she opened here eyes [...] 'What happened?' Elayne demanded, and Nynaeve shook her head grimly. 'You don't want to know.' Her lips twitched" This always bothered me, maybe because I have a dirty mind, but I really wanted to know what RJ had happen off screen. I read a thread where
  2. Maybe I'm crazy, but I think it would have read better with an "a" in it: "Rand al'Thor, once a simple village boy and your near-betrothed, now the most powerful man in the world?" I know it's sort-of ok grammar wise the other way, but I had to read it four times to understand it, and as far as I know, this book isn't Finnegans Wake.
  3. So, I just got the newest one, are they gonna be sending them at midnight (ET) from now on? "One more thing, the marath'damane..." "I'll deal with those channelers personally," Mat said. She gawked at him as if he were insane.
  4. Hey so I have absolutely no knowledge of how publishing works, and I don't know what WOT higher-ups have said, but all of the early releases (prologue, Ch 1, Ch 11) have come very early. Also, doesn't it make sense to release the books in time for the holidays? Does anybody know if we're heading for a move-up in the release date of AMOL? What do you guys think?
  5. I would like to know what time exactly this will be available to download :) omg so excited. Also, I can't believe people care that it costs 3 dollars! it's 3 dollars! Just skip an order of french fries at mcdonalds! We're getting the AMOL prologue months before the release and it only costs 3 dollars! suck it up
  6. Forgive me if we already know what the red-veiled aiel are, but here's my theory. We were told a long time ago then aiel men who learned they could channel would travel alone to the blight to die, fighting as many shadowspawn as possible. What if instead they were captured and 13 x 13'd like the people at the black tower and Demandred has been training them? This would explain both who they are and what Demandred's been doing in preparation for war. What do you think?
  7. In A Visit from Verin Sedai, Verin says something interesting: "The Chosen are predictable, but the Great Lord is anything but. Even after decades of study, I can't be certain exactly what he wants or why he wants it. I only know that this battle isn't being fought the way that al'Thor assumes it will be." This got me thinking A) What is the true battle the Dark One is fighting, B) why is it fought this way (and not a traditional way), C) what does this imply about the Dark One's motivations, and D) what is the nature of the Dark One's prison. Here are my theories. A) It seems obvious
  8. Not that this is important, but Rand also says this to Moiraine at some point (in book 5 i think), and I believe it was written that she looked annoyed.
  9. Hey guys, here's my question. What happened to the whole Mesaana hating Alviarin issue? RJ made such a big deal of the Shaidar Haran marking Alviarin and Mesaana hating Alviarin, that I thought this was going to have some sort of story line. But at the battle in the White Tower, it seems that Mesaana does not even think about it, and Alviarin is simply working for her again. Does Alviarin being marked still have some role to play? What do you think?
  10. My question is, what do you think it means to "know a key?" Does this mean that a specific web can unlock the dreamspike? If so, will this be used against the one at the Black Tower?
  11. Lol...wouldn't it be funny if Demandred kills Egwene, then Gawyn kills Demandred? It would go with the theme of the forsaken being absolutely underwhelming and the theme of Gawyn's sword fighting ability becoming stupidly, ridiculously, unrealistically good... Yep that would be amazing
  12. Was Tiana's letter the one that let Rand know that Mattin Stepaneos (and therefore the king of Arad Doman) was in the tower? Why did Tiana do this? When did we see her agree to do this?
  13. All right, great book. I have two burning questions... 1) who the hell was Nakomi? 2) what the hell was up with the Mierin scene? also...i hope what Aviendha saw doesn't come to pass :(
  14. damn, I'm at the University of Michigan, and my earliest class is 10:00 3 times a week and 1:00 twice a week.
