An Hour With Harriet

2012-04-30: I had the great pleasure of speaking with Harriet McDougal Rigney about her life. She's an amazing talent and person and it will take you less than an hour to agree.

The Bell Tolls

I'll be there if I have to crawl. I'm fortunate enough to live in Hyrum UT, which is QUITE close to Provo, so with the recent absence of High School duties this year I will be there or die trying

Anyone else going should be able to recognize me easily enough, just look for the adoring fan wearing an Asha'man uniform complete with pins (I wanted to bring my sword, but the BYU bookstore informed me, very politely might I add, that weapons would not be allowed, even un-sharpened replica ones...).

Will be there. Hopefully they do the same thing with the book numbers that they did for tWoK.

Any chance I can be a "storm leader" like thing?

Yeah, they are doing "Tower Guards" this year. Check DM when it is back up.

Default Those pre-ordering from BYU

I'm not sure if this deserves a new topic, so I'll just put it here. I just asked and was answered by the BYU bookstore regarding pre-orders from them, just to be sure I had the proper shipping/pickup option selected. So any one else pre-order from BYU, below is the conversation.

Quote:
You submitted a question (or request) on September 22, 2010 at 9:13 AM:

Regarding the upcoming midnight release of the Towers of Midnight that will be held at your facility, and as per Mr. Sanderson's request that we pre-order from the store at which we intend to visit the signing for, I have a question on the pre-ordering process. When we attempt to pre-order there is no clear option for pick up at release, so I simply need to know what steps you wish to be taken for that arrangement. The closest I can see for that is the "pick up at service desk", but not being a member or associate of BYU I am unsure if this is what is needed.

With thanks,
[Jenn Hama N'dore]

BYU Bookstore responded on September 22, 2010 at 9:29 AM as follows:

Hi [Jenn Hama N'dore]~

Sorry for the confusion. When ordering online, please select "pick up at the service desk". That is the option that tells the e-commerce fulfillment department that you will be pick up the book in the store. We will have your order available to be picked up at the Midnight release. Thanks! ~Tami Barber

I will be attending the midnight release! At least my husband said I could if he comes and we bring our two kids. So are you (Jenn Hama N'dore) saying that if we pre-order from BYU they will have our copies there at the signing for us to pick up at midnight? Exellent! Now I just have to book a hotel and figure out what my husband and kids can do while I hang out with a bunch of HCFF!

Tam, I think we might have someone here that wants to buy a t-shirt.

I wouldn't consider Hyrum to be QUITE close to Provo, but relative to, say, Virginia, yes, it is (but it's still a 2.5 hour drive). I'm from Logan and I'll be there as well. I'm in the Tower Guard, in fact ().

You shouldn't have to crawl to get there. Start early enough and you can just walk. (-:,` But seriously, depending on when you were planning on heading down and back, I have an extra seat in my vehicle. As long as you're not a psycho killer or something (because, really, who needs TWO of those in one car?), I'm sure we can work something out.

Default Questions and Answers During Signing

(Many of Brandon's answers are paraphrased until I can go back and transcribe the chat.)

Matt: Can a someone without the Talent for Dreamwalking or Dreaming, but with access to T'A'R through a Ter'angreal be taught to find dreams?

Brandon: As far as I know, no. That's an 80%.

Brandon: That question they should be asking is could Perrin (be taught to find dreams.)

Matt: Can he?

Brandon: I don't think so

Matt: Well, what he can do is similar to dreaming and dreamwalking.

Brandon: But the wolves don't know about them

Matt: Well...

Brandon: I'm not sure, but that's what I would be asking (paraphrased)

Matt: Can the True Power be used to create a Mask of Mirrors?

Brandon: Yes.

Matt: Do True Power Mask of Mirrors have different attributes than One Power Mask of Mirrors?

Brandon: Everything done with the True Power will be slightly different.

Matt: Can you place a True Power Mask of Mirrors on another person.

Brandon: Yes.

Matt: Would a True Power Mask of Mirrors persist into that person's dreams, how they see themselves.

Brandon: They would see who they saw themselves as (it wouldn't persist).

Matt: Is the Bore larger or smaller than it was at the time of the Sealing?

Brandon: The same size (95% sure)

Matt: So, are the seals, even in their weakened state, the reason the Bore has not grown any larger?

Brandon: As far as I know, yes.

Matt: Can Slayer dreamwalk in TAR or only go there in the flesh?

Brandon: Slayer cannot dreamwalk (100% sure)

Matt: Did Slayers employer in Winters' Heart use the True Power to weave a gateway?

Brandon: RAFO - I need to look it up, but you can tell True Power gateways if you know what to look for, wouldn't you agree Matt?

Matt: Yes.

Fan: Was Narg an especially smart Trolloc?

Brandon: Narg was a smart Trolloc; there are other Trollocs that can speak the human tongue...we are talking the the top one percentile.

Matt: Is there a distance to pain sensitivity with the Warder bond? In essence, would I stil know my Aes Sedai was being tortured or would it just be a dull pain if I was at a great distance?

Brandon: Yes, distance does matter. But no, you would know that she was being tortured, even at a great distance.

Matt: How did the Forsaken in charge of the gholam learn of Herid Fel?

Brandon: RAFO. (Smile)

Matt: What happened to the large packs of Darkhounds that were patrolling Altara back in Crossroads of Twilight?

Brandon: We already know, don't we?

Matt: Honest, can't remember.

Brandon: Well, I know, but I think we do know.

Matt: Did Verin know Fain was a darkfriend, when we first met Verin?

Brandon: Not sure.

Matt: Did Verin ever work with Fain?

Brandon: No. She's been around him, but working with him is something different.

Matt: We are told that the mindtrap is somehow connected to the soul. Is it possible to create ter'angreal that can hold a soul, or be tied to a soul in such a way as to capture it at death?

Brandon: Many things are possible, but are improbable.

Matt: Was such a Ter'angreal created during the Age of Legends?

Brandon: Many things are possible, but are improbable.

Matt: We are told the male Aiel channelers go to the Blight to "to kill the Dark One." And it is said "None survived long enough to face madness." Is this point of view or truth.

Brandon: RAFO. It's not that I don't know, it's that I think in reading the text you can answer that question yourself.

I will assign names of people that posted them when I transcribe it. For the sake of time, I just put my name and Brandon's as it was all done on the fly.

There's a few other things that practically kill it though, those being Weiramon and Anaiyella being one example and the Lord and Lady Torkumen being the others. Rand can sense Darkfriends and it seems that when his mojo gets going his holiness (heh, Masema would be thrilled to have seen that) fries Darkfriends for breakfast. I've got a feeling that if Min were evil, it likely would fry her as well.
