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

2) Where were the Wise Ones and the Kin?

3) How was Egwene able to sense "a trembling in the North", and other such things about the Pattern? Is this a Talent of hers?

3) What was the number of turned Aiel men in the Town?

4) How come Bryne's dreams were invaded despite his bond to Siuan?

5) Was it actually Egwene talking to Rand after she died? How did her soul achieve that if so?

Okay, these are noted. Last call; I'm about to take a shower and then hit the road.

I have more since no one else seems to have any:

1) Why didn't the other ta'veren have effects on the world like Rand did, but weaker?

2) Is Egwene Latra Pose reborn?

3) Are any characters we've seen, apart from Birgette and Jain Heroes of the Horn?

4) Is Casdsuane going to unswear the Oaths and retire eventually?

5) Between Moiraine and Nynaeve who figured out the weave needed to take control of Callandor?

6) Does Graendal live long as Avi's slave?

7) Why didn't Egwene detect Gawyn's sickness due to the Rings via her bond to him?

8) Was Rand's final weave to reforge the DO's prison have any similarity to Egwene's Flame of Tar Valon weave? Did he get to see it from outside the Pattern?

9) Does Nynaeve cure the madness in other Asha'man?

10) Why didn't Graendal seek to Compel Tuon?

I think I have enough questions already; it's a pretty long list with lots of potential for follow-ups, and I'm not sure how much time I'll have to ask questions. I have to go through the line once and go back through again, but the first time I go through I'll ask Brandon if I can catch him at the end. I'm #178 so I'm sitting here chilling while the line dwindles down; Harriet is leaving after the first go-through, so I'll go ahead and ask her a question the first time through.

I have to send my report through Maria before I post it, but I can say which questions were answered.

He was much clearer about this with me: RJ wrote the dialogue when Moiraine showed up at Merrilor. I'm guessing it was, like the proposal scene, fairly drafty, because it sure was awkward. That's the only tidbit I'll post because I got the feeling he had said as much many times before, and I'm simply the first to report it verbatim.

So, Trae Cooper sent me his report from Atlanta kind of casually through Facebook, and I grilled him on details so that I can summarize it accurately here. I'll leave out a couple of things that are covered in detail elsewhere (one of them in my report).

Harriet killed Siuan.

Brandon also killed someone significant but he won't say who.

RJ left specific notes that Min's Alivia viewing was supposed to be incidental, and an example of unreliable narrator even in the case of Min's viewings. The Foretelling/dreams about the boat were supposed to be along the same lines.

I'm guessing Harriet made that decision early on, so the whole charade about the viewing was planned.

I wish they'd approached this differently, and had Siuan die in tGS. Have Bryne refuse to go with her, and have her die heroically, buying Gawyn time to escape with Egwene. Would have upped the impact of the Seanchan attack, would have left Bryne with no bond, so Graendal could have compelled him easily. On the whole, it would have worked out better, I think. Siuan didn't have much to do in ToM and aMoL. And I'd rather have seen her die at a time when the impact would have been so much greater.

I guess you're right. I already thought that one sounded as a likely candidate for one of those instances where RJ was undecided and wrote down "I could do this, or I could do that, or that" about.

He could have killed Siuan in the rescue, thus making Bryne a dead man walking from that point. It would have made a great option, should he have decided the best way to go was to make the nomination of the GC to lead a battlefield each feel immediately ominous to the readers but not the characters, increasing the reader's feeling of deep need/desire to get Mat back north.

Not such a great avenue to take for the 3-books version, though. Bryne as a dead man walking and still in charge of the WT armies, plus the darkness around Bashere, plus the fact Graendal had previously used Ituralde and the other leaders of the factions/armies in AD much as she would the GC was pretty much way too much foreshadowing to leave to the HCFFs to chew on collectively for years.

The way Siuan's death happened gave the feeling RJ had left her exact fate up in the air (I'm not saying he would never have killed her this way, more that it was one of those things that served the mood/tone much more than plot development). I'd be far more surprised to learn that Gawyn's death or Egwene's death or even Birgitte's death were decided by TJ rather than RJ.

Hopefully tomorrow, but I can't make any promises. Maria has to have the ebook errata in by Friday.

It's looking like not today. Basically, Maria has a deadline on Friday to get the ebook ready. And I'm also waiting on Brandon to answer a question he forgot...and he just got home from tour, and he's recovering from sickness. Maria has at least written me back.

Maria has been both busy and sick. I asked her if I could post it without any MAFOs, since it occurred to me that that was what was holding her up, and she said yes. So, coming.
