  1. Personally I'd leave out the weaves until the Fielders start learning to channel. Point of view is easy enough; eg close up on Moiraine teaching Egwene with weaves visible, then cut to long shot with Rand watching and not seeing the weaves. In general, I'd only show the weaves when the characters are actively paying attention to how something is done, rather than just doing it. True, but the weaves still aren't trivial, and in many cases depicting them visually could get in the way of showing the effect they're having.
  2. That would be a lot of money wasted on unnecessary CGI!
  3. I'd be surprised if we don't go into character viewpoint when appropriate. Most notably there's the weaving of the One Power, which channellers can see but normal people can't. They'll surely have to show the actual weaves sometimes!

    UK Politics: It's Life Pfeffel but not as we know it

    Corbyn is probably less awful than most of the alternatives in most respects, but he's absolutely not the right person for the present moment. Right now, what the UK needs more than anything else is someone who recognises what a disaster Brexit is and is willing to put Remain back on the table.

    Game of Star Wars: The Final Hope

    Resistance has been cancelled, which I don't think anyone will be too upset about. The final season starts in October, which is a surprise; I assumed it wouldn't be till next year, since Last Jedi didn't leave it with much space to play in. I guess it will give us some idea of the state of the galaxy in the lead up to Skywalker.

    Airport security this century is absolutely ludicrous, but there's nothing liberal about it.

    U.S. Politics: Moscow Mitch

    But also creating a middle class by definition leaves behind a lower class who don't get helped! It's problematic even before you consider the racist aspect.

    What should be done... about climate change

    So, individual people need to make a difference by changing their behaviour, but entire countries are too insignificant for it to matter what they do? That seems just a tad inconsistent...

    Dating - I love the way you swipe

    I assume you have some general idea of the sort of person you might start finding attractive once you get to know them? The trouble with hanging out with someone as a friend is that it means them thinking of you as just a friend for months, and it might be hard for them to start seeing you differently. Have you tried dating sites?

    That won't help prevent things like the destruction of the Amazon, and if we keep burning fossil fuels till they run out, that's obviously going to be a worst case scenario for warming. Yes, supply & demand will shift us away from fossil fuels eventually, but we need to move faster than that!

    Dating - I love the way you swipe

    Yep. Either because they're badly written* fictional characters, or because they're psychopaths; take your pick, and either way don't try to imitate them. It sounds like perhaps you need to be open to dating people before you've decided if you find them attractive or not, and see how things progress? You can always call it off if you conclude you're not ever going to become attracted to them. Does the term demisexual sound at all appropriate to you? (* well, unrealistically written, which is what they need for that sort of show)

    You're planning to do that anyway! If he missed the message notification, he'll be glad to get a reminder, and you can still call if he doesn't reply. If you've only got three weeks of freedom, you don't want to waste too much time on waiting.

    Send him another message next time you see him online, then? Facebook is awful; I don't use messenger, but it regularly fails to show me all recent posts; I follow few enough people that it's very obvious stuff is missing. Bloody algorithms. But it wouldn't be inappropriate to call instead; he gave you his number for a reason!

    You haven't seen him in a month; there is no way any reasonable person could possibly think it's inappropriate to follow up on days of failure to reply. If he dislikes it, he's a lost cause, and it's better to find out sooner rather than later. Call him now, and if he's not apologetic and doesn't have a good reason for the lack of communication, you should probably dump him. You are absolutely not in the wrong here. Though it's theoretically possible he hasn't done anything wrong either; first step is to check whether he actually received your message about being back in the country.
