    Go back to when you read Fourth Wing for the very first time. What did you imagine her signet will be? Did you imagine it will have anything to do with lightening? Or force? What did you think and why?

    I thought it will have to do with mind work, because of her intelligence. I honestly thought she will either be able to see thoughts or project thoughts. I was very surprised by lightening and LOVED it. Especially because she was so frail, right?

    Yeah I was thinking either inntinnsic because they showed early on with Jeremiah what happened to him and I thought Violet may end up with another reason to be on the “most wanted” list haha or a mender like her brother because she was so fragile.

    As the story developed I wondered whether she would be a dream wielder too. I suppose that could still be a possibility?

      I love the idea of a dream wielder. But for some reason, I feel it will be shields.

        I can see why everyone is thinking shields and I wonder whether it will be something cooler than just blocking out the pain and people in her head. Like for instance I’ve always had a question around why Melgren never mentioned the Viscount Tecaras encounter – where only ONE relic was present and 3 sorrengails?? Maybe he didn’t care about things happening beyond the wards…but Is it possible that Violet’s shields are strong enough to stop melgren forseeing anything she is present at?

        Also I wondered whether melgren knew Varrish was torturing her and didn’t tell her mother or whether he was unaware because of Violet trying to shield.

        Food for thought.

          Melgren never mentioned the Viscount Tecaras encounter

          – I believe because he had more pressing issues to deal with? Perhaps? If he knows about it, I think he cares about bringing riders back to Navarre. But also, in a sense, Melgren cannot see everything. I don’t think he is omnipresent. He can only see the outcome of battles. Do you feel that there was a battle going on (venin vs sorrengail)? So Melgren would have seen that happening? If so, maybe it will be brought back up in Book 3. Or maybe he doesn’t want to admit that he cares about Tecarus?

          – I did wonder if Melgren knew. Violet couldn’t have shielded as she was given the elixir. So she was powerless. But it’s interesting that Lilith was gone indeed. That would make Melgren a very very bad guy indeed! Ugh!!!!

            These are great points – but yes I saw the venin vs sorrengails as a battle.

            Another thing I’ve been interested in – remember when Xaden tells Violet about Cat’s mind work and says that one of her daggers has a rune that shields against it? I’ve been wondering if that rune or another dagger she carries could be a shield against melgren’s foresight? It probably sounds stupid because I think it has to be on the person to work? (Violet took all her daggers off when fighting Cat on the mat so “close by” does not make the rune daggers power work) so the moment she throws it in a battle he could see? I just was curious to know how many daggers Xaden had created to…counter/shield other people’s signets. Because I think so far they have only discussed two of them – the one that opened the door if there was need there and the one that wards off Cat.

              Waait. You are SO right. There might be a rune for it. I mean aren’t we all so curious about all those runes? She’s got so many….what do they all do?
              Speaking of runes, what’s your take on Brennan’s rune? You know the one on this palm? Are we thinking sealing the soul? Bringing back from the dead? Keeping him alive?

                Yeah there are many interesting theories and discussions we can have around the runes. In terms of Brennan’s rune? I wondered whether it was his equivalent of the Tyrrish children’s relic? As in did they “mark” him so he would continue to go unseen and no one would be able to “sense” he was still alive – or his dragon? – did they say Marbh died as well in the original tale of the battle?

    I know this (and am 99% sure) that she will have the most powerful shields. <3

    Honestly I really want her second signet to be distance wielding but realistically I’m kinda leaning toward shields ( like shielding her body and mind from harm ) . Healing or mending souls is up there too tho.

      Shields are so good for her. Like, she managed to jump from dragon to dragon without any problems. Distance wielding will be nice but I feel like Aaric needs it more, to deal with his royal family and also help people in Basgiath/Aretia.

        Hey what do you think about this explanation. Honestly, I remember picking up on it myself in the book but just dismissing it as if I misunderstood because well…let’s be honest – we all know what it’s like to read until…3…6…9:30am 😅🤣 sometimes I thought I was delirious haha

    Yes this might be true, but if violet distanced wielded herself to wherever Xaden was on the continent then how would she get back to arita? I feel like it would be kinda unlikely that she would distance weild herself twice in one night. That’s the part I can’t quite wrap my head around.

      I feel like that’s just going to be Aaric’s signet. I don’t know, I can’t shake that off.
