    Interview: Oct 20th, 2005

    John Nowacki

    Nothing else really stood out among the questions I heard then or when he was back to signing books.

    Robert Jordan

    He did say that Ilyena was an Aes Sedai when asked, but that's hardly big news.

    Random Crazy Lady

    Is there any chance that Cadsuane might be Ilyena reborn?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I...wha?...First of all, I'm not going to answer that. Second of all...EWW! ... And you can quote me on that!


    [note from Mato: This was frackin' HILARIOUS. Totally unexpected, and Sanderson was totally shocked over it.]

    Interview: 2013

    Twitter 2013 (WoT) (Verbatim)

    Dennis (23 January 2013)

    I notice that Rand referred to Moridin as "Elan," not "Elan Morin." Why that stylistic choice?

    Brandon Sanderson (23 January 2013)

    Rand didn't think he deserved the third name.


    But Elan Morin were his two names, like Lews Therin. Tedronai was his third name.

    Brandon Sanderson

    Speaking as Rand does was an intentional insult, as per my understanding via the notes.


    I saw it as a familiarity, since he calls Ilyena by her first name only. Well, so does everyone...(she has three).

    Brandon Sanderson

    I view it this way, but it might be colored by my own personal experience. In Korea, using a very familial tone...

    Brandon Sanderson either endearing or incredibly offensive, depending on your relationship to the person. That's how I see it here.

    Brandon Sanderson

    At times, honestly, I don't know if Rand is intending insult or familiarity—perhaps both.
