Narrative issues and the Forsaken

2022.01.17 04:16 MorMorsBurgers Narrative issues and the Forsaken

The forsaken are probably the most inconsistently written characters in the books so far, up through crown of swords. It’s like every time one of them is about to become interesting or a long term antagonist, they just die anticlimactically.
Sammael was pretty much relegated to a C-tier threat for 3 books and then died in a spectacularly dissapointing finale. Despite being built up through Caddar and his relationship with Graendal he then just gets killed by Mashadar in what felt like an enormously forced “big battle” climax. Also how tf was that Aiel maiden still alive after 1 month or more of living in Shadar Logoth? I can wave off some inconsistencies and such for narrative purposes but that on top of Rand going from poisoned and near death by Fain’s knife to single-handedly conquering illian and a prolonged battle with a forsaken is laughable. The series has established that healing takes time to recover from, yet he has no isssue waking up from a 2 day nap with no food and doing all that? Come on.
Not to mention the same thing happening with Lanfear and Rahvin and Asmodean beforehand. It’s like Jordan thinks every books needs to end with a forsaken getting killed before they are allowed to be interesting, just to introduce more antagonists that fill the exact same role like the big smart myrddral or Moridin or Aran’gar. Surely any of the forsaken—underdeveloped as they were already—could’ve done the same thing while actually showing us that they were the most powerful individuals during the age of legends and have a reason to be the chosen.
As the books go on it feels like more and more asspulls like “the true power” and special channelers no one can sense… like jsut develop what’s already there instead of adding mroe shit for no reason. I believe Robert Jordan simply wrote too much stuff and it all just clutters the narrative. At least the Seanchan finally have a chance to pay off after 5 books of build up. The difference with them is that they were introduced early enough that it isn’t a ridiculous idea to have them show up this late in the series.

2022.01.17 04:16 H0rr0rGirl82 Why do I like doing girly things with my guy friends?

I was hanging out with one of my guy friends this weekend and I asked if I could paint his nails and do his makeup. He reluctantly let me and then we watched a movie and cuddled a little.
But hasn't been answering my texts all weekend until today when he told me this made him uncomfortable bc I treat him like one of the girls!!! (I also panicked and blew him up when he didn't reply and I don't even like him like that which is a whole nother story!!!)
This is not the first time I've done something like this to a guy friend. I've asked to braid their hair, go shopping for clothes, or hold my purse for up to like 5 minutes.
I wish I could say this is all by accident but deep down I know what im doing. I like accumulating guy friends who I am not attracted to and seeing how far I can get them to go for me. I know they are interested in me and a lot of them follow me around like straight up puppy dogs. They let me degrade their manhood for a chance to hang out with me!!!
I think this is based on a lifetime of trauma from men in my life. Meanwhile I go for the guy who cheats on me with one of my good friends haha wtf!!
Seriously tho do any of you do this to your guy friends just to see how much you can get away with lol?
