    Post-AMoL Theories/Predictions/Headcanons?

    ***Spoiler warning for the whole darn series <3*** One of the things I find myself thinking about a lot is how the world would evolve post-AMoL. I have sooooo many thoughts, ranging from how Cadsuane would deal with the Hall of the Tower to what would happen with the Asha'man to the fate of...

    Why are (book) Aes Sedai so dang horrible?

    AMoL (FINAL BOOK) SPOILERS FOLLOWING THIS THREAD: Sorry for the late response, life has been crazy recently. But regarding the quote above, I agree with everything except for this part. I think Rand made a great job of holding lands and hearts firmly in his grip, because he made many, many...

    Why are (book) Aes Sedai so dang horrible?

    This is a rant post, not intended as an insult to the series of the writing of such, but to the characters themselves. Spoilers for at least book 7 are present here. So I'm on another read of WOT, I mostly listen during my ride to and from work with the lovely Michael Kramer and also Kate...

    Hi I'm Baccino!

    Welcome! Asmodean is the best Forsaken hands-down. I always imagined him looking like Steve Buscemi, and no one can ever change my mind. I have such a head-canon that every other reaction he had was a tired sigh while in the presence of Rand or any of the other "children" he paraded around with.

    That's so cool! Awesome to see others close to home :)

    I'm just south of Indy, in Franklin! :D How about you?

    Lurked... now I'm in the door!

    Hey Azlan, welcome (back) to the community. I'm brand new here, but I'm finding it super intriguing and welcoming. I sort of enjoy Galad in a strange way. I think his joining the Children was a good move for him personally, and I think him taking the reigns there was the best thing that could...

    What kind of Amyrlin do you think she was?

    That's true! She and Sorilea had that truce of sorts. I remember when Aviendha took her second journey through the columns and saw the future of the Aiel, they said Fortuona had been honorable, but her successor was very much not so. I wonder if they were able to avert that future since Aviendha...

    What kind of Amyrlin do you think she was?

    Speaking of the Flame, do you think the weave would come into knowledge of others? My hope is yes, because I'm sure the effects of balefire would have to be combated later. I think the best hope for this would be any channelers that were close enough to see Egwene or feel the residues of her...

    An intro

    Welcome! I have had family in Charleston as well :) Glad to have you here.
  12. Dakota t'Liesinger Hoskins

    What kind of Amyrlin do you think she was?

    Exactly! I would expect that rumors would spread of the Tower's new policies (novice age-restrictions lifted, mostly, but also the implementation of the Kin and the inclusion of other channelers), and there would be such an influx of people to Tar Valon that turning them all away would...

    What kind of Amyrlin do you think she was?

    Ah, it's been a minute since I finished AMoL, the dynamic between channelers of other people centralizing around the Tower with Egwene's precedent completely slipped my mind while writing this. Honestly, I don't think even Cadsuane would have the ability to stop that momentum to coalesce, and...

    Times WoT Made Me Cry

    100% agreed. There is too much, "I swear I'll get us home" and similar thematics to wrench my soul apart for it to have not been planned.

    Times WoT Made Me Cry

    Major AMoL Spoiler. Absolutely, unequivocally broke me, and I'm tearing up remembering it now.
  16. Dakota t'Liesinger Hoskins

    What kind of Amyrlin do you think she was?

    Just the title. I have a personal headcanon that she was extremely spiteful, but in a way that the Tower needed severely. Her lack of regard for other Aes Sedai, and her outright animosity at being raised Amyrlin would be an excellent opportunity for her to force some much needed changes. For...

    Glad to be here!

    Welcome to Tar Valon! I'm glad to see a familiar face ;) Everyone, Rhiannon is such a kind soul, and from the amazing sense of community I've witnessed in my lurking (hehe), she'll be a great addition to the family here. <3

    Aes Sedai behavior towards those stilled

    Brian already touched on this, but I think the main issue is how Aes Sedai deal with those who are not Aes Sedai. At the time of the main plotline, the Tower was so far removed from their original purpose, being literal servants of all, to the point that they became those who would have the...

    Why did you pick your name?

    My name is simply my real name with my fiance's maiden name inserted in the Westlands' fashion :)

    Hello!!

    Welcome! I'm brand new here as well, but am already loving being here. Perrin is one of my favorites as well, as I can identify with him on some levels. I am 6'6" and not skinny by any means, and have been a large human for quite awhile, and so I adopted a similar "be careful with the...
