    Interview: Oct 13th, 2005

    Allen Bryan

    Is the Asha'man bond involuntarily linking?

    Robert Jordan


    Allen Bryan

    (Waste of a good question; that's in the FAQ.)


    This actually appears to be one of the things the FAQ was incorrect on. The first edition glossary entry for linking in A Crown of Swords suggests that RJ had the Black Ajah method of forced linking in mind. The glossary reference was removed in later editions, however, and the practice was not mentioned again until Knife of Dreams.

    Interview: Mar 21st, 2014


    When does a person become a Surgebinder? Because Kaladin talks about when he was a child, about it being a familiar feeling, and Shallan obviously was younger. Or is it when they speak the Words?

    Brandon Sanderson

    The bond starts forming before the words are spoken, but if the words are never spoken that bond will eventually evaporate and get broken. But the bond will start forming before. Just like an emotion attracts a spren, acting in the way that the spren you would eventually bond will start drawing them toward you and that will start to create that bond.
