    Interview: Sep 2nd, 2005

    Zaela Sedai

    Then she asked if Lan and Myrelle slept together.


    (I thought it was duh, although it probably happened with tweaking the bond.)

    Robert Jordan

    And for Jordan is was also duh, yeah they slept together.

    AOL Chat 2 (Verbatim)


    Why is Myrelle so heartless? She nearly let Lan die. Why?

    Robert Jordan

    She's dealing with a man capable of taking her head off before even she could blink and a man who's in a mental state where she can't be sure he won't.

    Interview: Dec 15th, 2011

    Zas (Terez)

    When Lan tracked down Myrelle in Lord of Chaos, she used the bond to Compel him to come to her, in such a way that he wouldn't detect it. Did she have to use the bond to seduce Lan, or did he just go along because he didn't have anything better to do?

    Brandon Sanderson

    (laughter) I'd have to look that one up. I don't know. I'd have to look it up. I don't have the answer to that one. We'll call that one a MAFO though. I'm actually curious myself (laughter).

    Maria Simons

    The question poses a false dichotomous argument: was Lan "seduced" by the bond or did he have nothing better to do? [Terez: it was a joke.] Suffice to say that Lan was psychologically devastated at this point—not in his right mind, his will to live shattered. Myrelle took control of him to save his life; he really had no choice in the matter. And here’s a quote from the notes for you: “She had to use the bond to compel [notice lower case here] him, sometimes, which she found both odd and somewhat insulting.” But one has to put this in the context of her other Warders, who eagerly complied with her desires, carnal or otherwise.

    Interview: Apr, 2012


    Why is such a big deal made about the silence from the Black Tower when Nynaeve reached them without fuss?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Myrelle wasn't inside the grounds. They had been locked out.


    This one should have been caught on my filters. Realised it as soon as it came out.


    This isn't actually the answer; this is the problem. Why is there a silence when the Rebel embassy can be easily reached by gateway and vice versa? To quote Romanda, "They should have at least sent word. This silence is disturbing." That was the point behind the question—why is there such a big deal made when Nynaeve could reach them without fuss?
