Sometimes I picture Lews Therin Telamon as an actual, tiny dragon that lives in Rand’s brain and I feel no shame in this
^Best gif EVER for this post
How come Perrin and Mat are Ta’veren and Nyneave and Egwene aren’t?
Nyneave and Egwene just seem to do so much more for the cause of the Light than either of those two.
Perrin fights in the Two Rivers, then shows up once or twice and spends the rest of his time chasing Faile.
Mat…is lucky and fights a couple of battles and will probably have something to do with the Eelfinn and Aelfinn, and he seems to play a bigger role than Perrin, for sure, but he does considerably less than either of the two girls, at least so far.
Idk, maybe it’s just my dislike of Mat and indifference to Perrin showing, but why on earth are these two more important to the fate of the universe than Nyneave and Egwene?
I guess it’s more of a meta thing, but I don’t understand why Jordan didn’t just make the girls ta’veren too.
Or just leave Rand alone as the chosen one and make none of the others ta’veren.
I suspect that this is the result of Jordan establishing who was (and who was not) ta’veren at the start of the story. I don’t think Mat and Perrin are ta’veren because they are more important to the fate of the world, but because in the first three books, it is more important that they are ta’veren.
Being ta’veren means Mat and Perrin provide Rand with protective camouflage and support. It is less obvious than it would otherwise be that Rand is the Dragon Reborn; he doesn’t get Ba’alzamon’s full focus and, for example, he can talk to his friends about his creepy nightmares because they’re having them too.
Being ta’veren also means Mat and Perrin have something of a “superpower” (and an explanation for why they odds might be in their favour, enabling them to escape various situations) at a point in the story when they haven’t yet acquired other special abilities.
By comparison, the girls can’t be decoys for Rand and they already have superpowers when the story begins, so they have other strengths that they can drawn upon. In the earlier books, they have more supporting roles and less time is devoted to their exploits (and I suppose it’s possible Jordan also didn’t yet realise just how much of the story was going to be about them). So that’s why I think the series begins with just the boys being ta’veren.
However, as the series progresses, things changes. And because being ta’veren is something one becomes, rather than something one is born with, Jordan was not stuck with what he decided back in book one. He could have revoked ta’veren status from some characters and/or bestowed it upon others.

Lan: Well, fuck.
My favorite genre of Wheel of Time review: whiny boys who fail to grasp that RJ wrote reverse sexism in his world, all they know is that they don’t like reading about male characters getting treated the way they treat women in real life. Suck it, boys, you’re just jealous we can channel ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I’ve started reading the series in young age and I never thought that what I am reading is something unique. Cool and strong female characters all around the world? Is this supposed to be newsflash and educational for my young brain? Not for me but it seems so for many other readers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
