Thanks for the reminder! I might have maybe forgotten, despite being fully aware of this yesterday. I slept. Also ADHD.

For any of you interested, I have a word document of the Ravens prologue if you want to read it since it was only available in one or two published books that most people likely don't have. Just send me a message and I can shoot the document your way.

YAY Great that you are already ahead Leala :joy Did you find some bits that you might have missed before?

Laralelle - that's ok, I'm sure you will catch up! :pleased-1: I find it easy to read the first couple of chapters all at once.

I usually find it easy to read the first couple of books all at once. :look:

It's a vice.

I'm working on it.

I don't even know how many times I've read this part of the book, so I'm not sure. :laugh:

I thought I had the Ravens Prologue, but perhaps not
Some thoughts (including things I never considered/noticed before)
The description of people sunken into the stone seems very reminiscent of what happened to the Trollocs in the Ways when they triggered some trap
The Voice is capitalized, as is the Singing - is this the same sort of seed singing we see later?
How would giving him a few minutes of lucidity work? Have Aes Sedai done this? Would the madness then return instantly in the same form? Or is Ishmael just assuming things? It seems to be set very shortly after the sealing, so there surely can't have been much time to try and learn
Lews Therin has young children. He also has childhood friend who are still alive - He's described as middle years, more white hair than not, so is probably 500-600 years old (I think we get a confirmation of his age somewhere). So, even with the extended life for non channelers, it's surprising he has childhood friends around - in the Aiel visions, it was suggested typical lifepan was around 150 IIRC. I think he had probaby been with Ilyena for 30-40 years at this point. I guess when you live very long, the age at which you have children can cary a lot.
Did Ishmael tell people what had happened? It doesn't seem like anyone else was around to witness the creation of Dragonmount

Yes, I think the Voice here is the Aiel/Ogier tandem singing.

I suspect Ishamael was able to give LT lucidity because the taint is from the DO, and he used the True Power in some way. It would probably not be a lasting effect.

His childhood friend that is still alive could also be a channeller ;)
