Perrin and Faile Updated

By Linda

The Perrin essay has extensively updated with examples and discussion from A Memory of Light. There is at least one new parallel for Perrin. He is every bit as complex as Mat, and the essays of both characters are now about the same length, as it happens. Three women now feature in his story arc and they have essays of their own. Lanfear's was updated some time ago. but I also have now updated the Faile and Berelain essay. Quite a lot of material was added to it, especially regarding the Horn and the hospital. The two women share a new parallel.

There is now only one Character essay left to be updated: the largest and most complex of all - Rand.

However, I plan to work on the Fashions article next, since the Con season has commenced.

New material is marked in bold.

Two More Articles Updated and Some News

By Linda

First up, the Who Is Not A Darkfriend? article was updated with the names of the many additional people who showed their finest in A Memory of Light. In some ways it is a roll call of the fallen, but then it is also one of those who triumphed.

And I added some more to the Writings For Armchair Travellers article after noticing something Jain Farstrider said in Towers of Midnight.

New material is marked in bold.

I've got about seven articles still to update, some of them fairly important. It's been slow going on the blog because I was trying to find work for four months, and then since I happily obtained a new position a few weeks ago, I've been working long hours concentrating on my new responsibilities.
