    Well, I have finished last volume at least. I don't feel well today :( It was very intensive and heartbreaking book. But a few things I did not like. Please don't kill me :D
    For example - Logain and Black Tower. Thread of Logain is wasted in my opinion :( I always expected his huge role during Last Battle but he didn't do anything special, everyone could break the seals. Is this his glory? I think Jordan has prepared for Logain much more, why Sanderson didn't use his potential?
    But I have three questions (well I have much more, but maybe I will start with three :) )
    First is - If Aviendha was pregnant during Last Battle? If not, did future changed and she won't have children? And if she has them, how can they be accepted as Rand al'Thor children?
    Second - If Nakomi is Creator or an angel? How it happends that she changed Rand and Moridin bodies?
    Third - There was Egwane's dream about Rand sitting down in a chair and chair's owner would be angry with this - I always belived that this is Crystal Throne - and prophecy that Rand will bond nine moons - is this things happened? Why Rand knelt before Tuon? This is my the greates pain :( Why he let damane stay in a'dam? He shall break chains and put others into chains. Really don't understand this solution.
    Do you know any answers for this questions? :D

    I think the last night Aviendha and Rand spent together made her pregnant.

    Regarding Logain, he entered the Last Battle after a long and hard imprisonment. But he did do some great things. He saved Elayne's army and Lan's army as they were about to be destroyed. If Logain and the Asha'man don't do that, the battle is over. And they had a minor role to play in the battle of Merrilor; but most of that role was off-screen, in my opinion. I agree that Sanderson didn't bring out the best in Logain in the last battle. But that's one of Sanderson's lesser failures.

    I think that Aviendha became pregnant before the battle. But there is no definite quote to verify it. In any case, Rand will still meet with his ladies after the battle; and they will have more than enough time to make love and bear children. Many people know that Rand is still alive: Cadsuane, 3 ladies, and Alivia.

    Egwene's dream about an angry woman is probably Elayne or Morgase. When Rand killed Rahvin in Caemlyn and ruled there, both Elayne and Morgase became angry. As to Tuon, he needed to ally with her. He would have lost the battle if the Seanchan weren't on his side. And I think that the Seanchan view of damane will gradually change to the better. Egwene's agreement with Tuon helps; so do Bethamin and Seta who will become Aes Sedai when they were Sul'dam. And now the Seanchan know for sure that Sul'dam can learn to channel. There are many possibilities in the future.

    Re: Logain. His glory came when he saved the children. All the parents there who saw him save the kids, and all the kids, they're going to pass on that story generation upon generation, and truth becomes legend becomes myth...his glory is living forever in stories because he saved those kids.

    I think this can be true. I just always thought that he will raise his glory during Last Battle. Maybe this is not so simple.
    After Last Battle Egwane become in my eyes true hero. She gain so much only by herself and her willpower, she wasn't ta'varen, just simple girl. She didn't fail during Seanchan negotiation. Where Rand and Mat proved to be weaklings, she showed strength. I always liked her, she had strong and weak moments, but finally she become my favorite hero.

    My thought was always that Logain would become the new leader of the Black Tower, and gain his glory there if his actions in the Last Battle weren't "enough" for Min's viewing.

    That was the most heart breaking part for me. I was so happy for Logain because he was no longer feared!

    I am of the mindset that it was a good thing the Damane were still in force.
    Other wise, Moghedian would not have been captured.

    It can become maybe a penal thing? You fork up as channeler, you get collared? Cause it is the easiest way to handle prisoners who can channel

    But the ones where the bracelet is not attached to the collar maybe for some cases. (Collared for extreme cases)

    Wear the bracelet to take them for exercise court, whatever, then take it off when they are back in their space. They don't have to be kept in a fortress, cause with out a leashholder, they can't move far, and they can't attack and they can't harm themselves. I don't condone the beatings at all, but the rest is a perfect way to confine and possibly work to rehabilitate rogue channelers.

    If I recall correctly, there is some type of mystery that will be revealed on the 10th Anniversary of AMoL... I don't believe it was said what it might be, but it makes me itch just thinking about it.
