Androl! Pevara! Oh, my darlings!
I'm sorry. I just wanted to make sure my feelings on this subject is clear. Androl and Pevara are the absolutely cutest couple in the entire freaking series. Screw Rand and his women, Nynaeve and Lan, Perrin and Faile - although that one is kind of touching- and I always found Gawyn an absolute spoiled, overconfident, ignorant prick and unworthy of Egwene's majesty. Androl and Pevara!
I'm not sure what's so awesomely beautiful about them. Maybe the way they think of one another once their double bond is in place. Maybe the fact that the Asha'man for long were convinced they couldn't ever love because of their nature, and that the Red are taught to despise and distrust men. I was just really, really happy with how they turned out. They are so beautiful in the way they think of each other.
Once again, hating on the Trakands, but the only possible reason Egwene could ever have had to want Gawyn as her husband was his looks, as I read into it. There's nothing to it like the way Androl thinks of Pevara; the famous "Did you just compare me to a strap of old leather?" sequence. They are astonishingly tender and marvellous leaders. I have another idea on this coming up later.
Anyway, now that I'm done fangirling about Androl&Pevara, what are your thoughts on this? Does anyone disagree with my slightly harsh view of Gawyn? Does anyone else hold them this high in esteem?
