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.

Booksigning was awesome. I have notes, from both the signing and the dinner, but will transcribe them tomorrow. I've been up WAAAY too long to be coherent. Quick highlights:

Jason Wolfbrother and 4Alethinos were both there and both got RAFO cards

Brandon wrote down Asmo's killer's name lightly in Korean, then heavily scribbled the hell out of it & gave it to one of the storm leaders.

Tamyrlin & Brandon wiped the floor with Jason and i at M:tG

Tamyrlin drove Brandon all over today, and had plenty of "grilling" time.

Brandon signed my book "Would you be nae'blis" and Harriet signed it "For the cookie queen" (i made them both giant Aes Sedai-symbol cookies). Squee!!

biggest story-related bombshell (imho): don't assume Rand and Moridin are linked.

More tomorrow. Including the results of the grilled cheese explanation.

LMAO! I'll put that in the same category as Brandon telling us not to assume that Cyndane is Lanfear.

They may not be linked, but I'm sure they're...

associated, attached, bound, conjoined, conjugated, coupled, fastened, grouped, hooked, interfaced, joined, melded, networked, tied, united, yoked...

...in some way or another

Wacky theory for TG:

Rand slaps a Warder bond on the DO, Alivia kills Rand, the DO balefires Alivia, Rand is retroactively kept alive, the DO drops dead anyway.

See? No need for a link to Moridin there.

Yes, that is a big bombshell because the books make it seem like they are linked. Both Moridin and Lews Therin seem to agree in the Dream sequence that they are linked in some manner. They seem to understand and assume they are linked, so why shouldn't we as readers?

He sat there with his ankles crossed and one arm hanging over the heavy arm of the throne, yet he seemed ready to explode into violence. Interestingly, though his black coat was embroidered with blue-and-gold dragons that twined around the sleeves from elbows to cuffs, he did not wear the collar pins.

An Aes Sedai answer if I ever heard one. This is a joke if BS actually thinks we would even momentarily believe that.

And Gonzo, gotta say I love the theory. Although I'm not sure the DO would die or be resealed from Rand dying...

I also cannot begin to tell all of you just how proud I was to get a RAFO card along with the estimable Jason Wolfbrother. It totally made my day.

Having Mat, Tamyrlin, and JWB on the premises was a very much an additional bonus.

Seeing Frenzy, Jason from Dragonmount, as well as meeting Harriet and Brandon was a genuine joy. Harriet is a splendid person and I thanked her for bringing her husband to us all.
