The Twice-Dawning Day

111 replies (last reply 2012-10-15 - TheWheelWeaves)

For years, we have been trying to figure out how, exactly, a day can dawn twice.

TITLE - The Great Hunt
CHAPTER: 26 - Discord

Twice dawns the day when his blood is shed.
Once for mourning, once for birth.
Red on black, the Dragon's blood stains the rock of Shayol Ghul.
In the Pit of Doom shall his blood free men from the Shadow.

I have been relatively silent on this one for a while now because most of the theories about the twice-dawning day involve some very non-literal interpretations. For example, some think there will be an eclipse, or that the sun will be obscured by ash when Dragonmount erupts, but neither of these explanations involves the sun actually rising again, which is what the word 'dawn' explicitly i...

Nakomi's Soul Is Brown

61 replies (last reply 2013-09-18 - Waxer)


When I read the Nakomi scene, Verin came to mind immediately. I still read it skeptically, but it was like every time she spoke, I was more convinced it was Verin. I am pretty sure that this one will end up on the 'unrevealed' list, so I'm not really interested in arguing it much on the internet, but I figured I would lay out the evidence.

As to how she learned that Aviendha would be going to Rhuidean...there are a number of possible ways. She might have gone through the Rings of Rhuidean herself. If Sorilea really is a Darkfriend, she could have easily learned of it through her; Verin conferred with the Blacks in t...

Fain: Shadowspawn Thief

62 replies (last reply 2012-11-19 - Cabadrin)

Warning: longtheory is long. However, if you are familiar with the passages that I have quoted from the books, then the theory itself isn't all that long. For those who are less familiar with those passages, I have bolded what I think are some particularly important bits for easy skimming. I do recommend reading all of the quotes in full, though...there are good tidbits in all of them. I will give my interpretation of the quotes, but for the most part, I like to let RJ's words speak for themselves. And Brandon's too, of course. I feel a bit like I am going great lengths to state the obvious here; I have been surprised since Knife of Dreams that the old hats of the fandom are in general so resistant to this idea. Since The Gathering Storm, that resistance is even mor...

Sorilea is a Darkfriend

57 replies (last reply 2012-08-31 - Nocterequiem)

This is not my theory - the idea was first mentioned on the 13th Depository forums after the release of The Gathering Storm - but I thought it would be a good idea to get all of the evidence for the theory together in one place for easy linking, and to introduce the theory to those who follow Theoryland but might not have considered it.

I didn't consider it, even after reading the book (and apparently, neither did Cadsuane), but now that the idea has been brought to my attention, I realize that it's probably true. If it is true, then Sorilea is probably the most powerful of the unrevealed Darkfriends; her influence among the Wise Ones is almost unchallenged.

Sorilea is first intr...

Gawyn Will Kill Rand

66 replies (last reply 2011-10-28 - Destrina)
The title might seem rather random and strange to some people. Maybe most people. But I was writing a post on 'dead yet lives', because I'm pretty confident about my theory on that subject (though it might be a red herring to detract from....something), and that led me to write about the Battle of Caemlyn, because according to Nicola's Foretelling, it all seems to tie in together (and many thanks to Dominic and Linda of 13th Depository - the former formerly so - for bringing the Battle of Camlann to my attention, or my brain would certainly never have gone here).

In the process of writing those two, this little the...

The Great Purge

The Great Purge

During Egwene's Accepted test, we see some fascinating bits of foreshadowing. Not the least among those bits is the fact that Egwene has somehow been raised to the Amyrlin Seat without having taken the Oaths:

TITLE: The Dragon Reborn, CHAPTER: 22 - The Price of The Ring

"What can you do, Mother?" Beldeine cried. "What can you do?" It was not clear whether she meant for Rand or for herself.

"More than anyone suspects," Egwene said. "I never held the Oath Rod, Beldeine." Beldeine's gasp followed her from the room.

Egwene's memory still played hide-and-seek with her. She knew no woman could achieve the shawl and the ring without pledging the Three Oaths with the Oath Rod firmly in hand, the ter'angreal sealing her to keep ...

Definitely the Dreaming

29 replies (last reply 2005-07-18 - terez)
I'm only writing this because I cannot understand why the origin of LTT in Rand's head is still under debate. As for all the rest of it, the debate is understandable, but I feel like the quality of the debate is diminished because the origin of LTT is not recognized.

LTT most definitely came from Rand's flesh-dreaming. His presence might be influenced by the taint, or by Rand's misconceptions of the nature of his presence, but the presence came from Rand's first flesh trip into TAR, and each time Rand goes back, he becomes stronger. Not to mention the third, whom I doubt we will truly understand until October, if then.

Here are the facts:

1. Regardless of the attempts at word twisting concerning Rand's thoughts before his final battle with Ba'alzamon, LTT's unve...
