Setting: The White Tower

Characters: Egwene, Elayne, Nynaeve, Leane, Siuan

Outline

Suian tells the girls of their punishment and that Elayne and Egwene will be raised Accepted as their abilities are beyond those of a novice.

Summary

Egwene is waiting in her room for the Amyrlin's summon. She feels they are being treated unfairly and tells Elayne so through the tiny hole connecting their rooms. They discuss running away should they face stilling and Elayne even considers asking her mother for protection. At that moment the Accepted walks in to takes them to the Amyrlin.

They are brought to the Keeper's study where Leane sends the Accepted accompanying them away. Leane takes them to the Amyrlin. Siuan lets them wait for minutes before she pays attention to them. Nynaeve can't hold her tongue and tells the Amyrlin they didn't run away but Liandrin made them. Siuan tells them the fact they are connected to Liandrin could be very dangerous for them if known. To cover her escape Liandrin and the twelve sisters who went with her committed murder.

Nynaeve tells the Amyrlin she thinks they are not treated fair but Siuan makes Nynaeve hold her tongue. She tells them their sentence will be a switching by the Mistress of Novices and working in the scullery until their hair is gray. The punishment has already been announced in the novice quarters. Siuan asks them if there are any comments on this. Egwene, Nynaeve and Elayne wisely keep quiet.

The Amyrlin also noticed their ability to channel has increased a lot since they left the Tower. Egwene and Elayne will be raised to Accepted since their abilities have grown beyond novicehood. She warns them not to see it as a reward. Their first days as Accepted will be harder than anything they faced so far.

Siuan also tells Elayne her mother has paid a visit to Tar Valon and that she was very upset by the disappearance of her daughter. The Amyrlin managed to convince her Elayne needs more time in the Tower though. She left a letter with the Mistress of Novices for Elayne and refused to take her Aes Sedai advisor back to Caemlyn. The Amyrlin wants to know if Elayne wants to go to her Mother. Elayne wants to become Aes Sedai though. The Amyrlin is pleased by this answer, she had no intention of letting Elayne go. She asks the Keeper to take Elayne to the Mistress of Novices. She wants to have a word with Egwene and Nynaeve in private.

Notes

Character Development

Egwene

Decides she would really run away rather than be stilled.

Nynaeve

Tugs her braid.

Elayne

She is still insisting Galad is not her brother.

Mysteries

What ter'angreal were stolen?

Siuan says they don't know the use of some of them

Why does Siuan think the Hall would Still the girls if they knew of the Black Ajah connection?

Miscellaneous

Suian refers to them as runaways

She probably knows they did not run away, but were tricked by an Aes Sedai, so this may be another example of flexibility in the Oaths.

They murdered Aes Sedai, Warders and servants to hide their flight

This does not seem the best way of not attracting attention.

Siuan claims even an infant would not have fallen for the trap

Does she really think they should have suspected an Aes Sedai?

Characters

First Mention

Marris Sedai

Mysteries

What ter'angreal were stolen?

Siuan says they don't know the use of some of them - is this because Verin hasn't shared her information that they are linked to Tel'aran'rhiod or are there even more that are not known? Has the Black Ajah always known their use, or did one of the Forsaken tell them?
