I am Maeric, from the Bloody Waters sept, Taardad clan. May you find water and shade this day. I'm also a Far Aldazar Din. That's "Brothers of the Eagle" in the Old Tounge. What's more, I wear one of those little red headbands with the ancient symbol of the Aes Sedai on it, because WE LOVE RAND!!! After all, Rand is the Car'a'carn, prophesied to take us across the Dragonwall, and unite us. Of course, all of this has some nasty side effects. The prophesy also said that he would destroy all but a remnant of a remnant. But that's okay, because WE LOVE RAND ANYWAY!!! Right, fellas?
And now, the moment you've all been waiting for...
It's a feast day here in Cairhein. It's the first real chance I've had to slip away and write to you all. Everybody else is feasting on fowl of some sort, or asleep. It's really quite a pleasant change.
I've been wondering for quite a while now when Tam will find out that Rand is the Car'a'carn, the Dragon Reborn, and the Cooramor. I mean, Tam is Rand's father, on an emotional level, if nothing else. And yet, Tam is the one person on the continent that doesn't know about Rand. We all know Perrin didn't tell him - it "wasn't his place" or something. There haven't been any travelling merchants through since Padan Fain, who wasn't really a merchant in the first place. Emond's Field is fairly isolated, so the rumor mill hasn't picked up on it yet.
I can just see Tam's reaction when he finds out. "Oh, sure, wearing nice coats, eh?" I can see Tam hunting down Perrin and throttling him. Admittedly, that would be a pretty funny thing to see. "Ow! Master al'Thor! Ow! Please, you're hurting me! Ow!" We all know he wouldn't fight back - I could just see a half-crazed Car'a'carn going on a wild Power-wrought killing spree after finding out. It would not be a pretty sight. There would be enough balefire flying about to totally eliminate several year's worth of pattern.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if there was enough balefire to unravel the pattern? Would the world as we know it just cease to exist? Would some people just blink in and out of existence? Perhaps we would just be shot back in time to the point where the pattern was still all in one piece. Another thing I've always wondered, is what would happen if somebody balefired something, and then somebody else balefired them? Would the thing balefired return to how it was before, since nothing was there to burn it out of the pattern, or is the thread still gone? Also, what would happen if two people balefired one another? Would they both disappear, or both reappear, or both flicker, or would one disappear, or what? Too many options. It's total madness.
