Default I'm driving Brandon to the airport

It's about an hour drive, so I'll get to ask him lots of questions. Any suggestions? I'm going to plot with Tam here in a little bit.

You could ask him whether he knows the Stephen King book Misery.

make sure you ask Gonzo's question early on in the trip to keep the tension high for the full journey.

I don't know if I could tell him I'm his #1 fan with a straight face. Not that I don't like him...but I am acquainted with a few really, really gushing fanboys/fangirls. And besides, Peter will be with us. He is clearly Brandon's #1 fan.

1. Is the gay male character someone we've already seen (like Androl)?

2. Why only the female access key melted.

3. Is the weave placed on Accepted before the AS test a form of Compulsion?

4. Does he know what the Accepted and AS ter'angreal were originally used for?

5. Could a channeler bound to the Horn still channel?

Hehe, ask him if he wants my old Magic cards, and if so where should I send them.

swerve a lot and then ask him if he will hold the steering wheel for you while you put your contacts in.

Hehe!

Or keep asking him, "Do I seem drunk to you?"

He already indicated that it was someone we have met already in TOM. His refusal to clarify further on whether or not the character has been introduced previous to TOM seems to point toward Androl.

The rest of your questions are on the list.

Any news on the rest of the Q&A? I am really curious. I wish I lived near some of these cons so that I could actually go.

I took down the report for now because I am beginning to seriously second-guess my memory on a few of these questions - especially the ones from the bits of the trip where I was distracted, like confusing interstate merges and the airport terminal merges - and I'd like to get the audio and do a real transcript. So, consider yourself teased, but keep in mind I might have made some mistakes. The real report will be up relatively soon, I hope.

Interesting. I can't help but wonder why his answer, whatever it was, would no longer make sense. Who besides Alviarin and Sheriam were you considering as suspects?

What are you fishing for here? Taim?

I have been defending that theory in your absence - most especially since TOM - so I was rather happy about it too.

Great work! And very interesting answers. I'm surprised we got so much new info--I thought most answers would be RAFOs. I'll comment more on them once the official version is up, but I'm especially happy he confirmed dead Heroes would still be able to channel.

Thanks, Terez!

Well, it was a good suspicion, but there was never anything resembling confirmation, so there was still some suspicion that some of them were Black Ajah as long as there was still doubt about what the hell the Borderlanders were up to. Now it appears as though none of them were Black. Also, there was always the question of what happened to their troops. They might have been ordered to join the Borderlander armies (either the ones on the march or the ones back on the Blightborder), but there hasn't been any sign of that. They might still be waiting in the Black Hills somewhere.
