    Rafe did a Q&A on instagram this evening; if you don't use instagram, there's screenshots on our Facebook and it's been transcribed on our blog (https://blog.tarvalon.net/?p=1084). There was lots of interesting stuff!

    He's finally confirmed that none of Min, Elayne, or Aviendha will be cut.

    I'm super happy to see that Harriet has been very involved.

    I'm very curious to see how the Great Serpent Ring they use compares to the one Badali sold.

    And I'm very excited to see Fal Dara.

    Sounds like they’re doing their best to keep everything important intact for the show. Still can’t wait for it to finally come out

    This was so fun to read!!

    People seem that they are worried about the show not being exactly how they like. I'm glad Rafe got a little frustrated and said there was no way they were going to cut Min, Aviendha, or Elayne. I'm so excited!!!

    I'm really curious about the Great Serpent Rings as well ... wondering if I should hold off till they have copies available :p

    That's what I'm doing now, waiting to see if I like the design. . .

    The Q&A definitely made me excited. Some of his answers just make it so clear that Rafe is one of us, haha.

    I like that he said Pevara is one of his favourite Aes Sedai. I hope she doesn't get cut.

    I'm super stoked!

    Min is in Season ONE! And I can't wait to see what the effects look like for weaves.

    I agree with the earlier posts: I can't wait to see what channeling looks like. I am also excited to see how Min's visions look. I hope the show uses visuals like the books did: female channelers learning to use their powers by imagining an opening rose and saidin being like a raging river. I know that the show does not have time to show everything in the books but I hope that they show some teaching in the White and Black towers.

    I'd like to see a difference in the weave effects. Saidar threads could be flowing and elegant, saidin could be more erratic, maybe spasm or have an unstable look (sort of like Kylo's saber blade compared to others). It would be a subtle way to help describe something they repeat over and over in the books every time someone channels.
