Senior Member Interview
January 1st, 2012
- Why did you choose Green?
Cause I AM Green :) . Its my home and while I could have fit in elsewhere it would have been like a lion wearing a chicken suit to blend in if I had gone anywhere else.
- Are you like the Greens in the books? Do you like to have fun with men? Are you a fierce warrior?
Yes, Yes, and Yes is the short answer to that :)
- Do you have a favorite Green Ajah character from the novels?
Egwene and Cadsuane because both are strong women who do what they have to and are grossly misunderstood.
- How long have you been a fan of the Wheel of Time series?
since I picked up the first one in 1997
- How did you first get into the series?
It was recommended by a guy I dated way back in 94 and one day I ran across the first one in a used book store. Picked it up and I have been hooked ever since.
- Who is your favorite "hero"?
I have many, Egwene and Cadsuane were already mentioned, so I will go with Rand and Siuan
- Favorite bad guy/gal?
I go back and forth on this one. The first 3 books its Lanfear, then its Graendal till you get to the last couple of books where I really appreciated just how evil Semihrage is
- Favorite book and scene?
Favorite book is book 5, my favorite scene... oh man that is asking a lot. Ok, one of my all time favorites is when we first meet Avi in the woods with the girls... or the battle at Dumai's Wells.
- If you were set down in Randland, who/what would you see yourself as? An Aes Sedai? Innkeeper? Seanchan Captain?
I would be Aes Sedai obviously. Green without question. I would have an obscene amount of Gaidin and kick ass all over the place.
How did you find TarValon.Net and what convinced you to stay and become a Senior Member? That is a long story. I will make this brief... I found it through another site called Stonedogs. I joined there and met Eleyan, Moradi, Mari, and a few others. After a month or two I joined and never looked back. That was in March of 2002. i have been one of the most constant members in those 10 years. I have never been gone for more than a few weeks at a time. and only 2 or 3 times. I remain a SM cause this place is my home, and I will always think of my friends here as my family.
- What do you do in "real life"?
Raise my kids, be a wife :)
- Do you have any hobbies?
Yes. Cooking being the easiest one to talk about. That and of course reading :P . I also enjoy politics, movies, music, fundraising, and helping others in general.
- What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?
Oh lots of different kinds. The only exclusions would be gansgsta rap and country and I even have one or two of those genres in my list somewhere. My favorites are Chevelle, Breaking Benjamin, Korn, Led Zeppelin, Mozart, any 80's pop crap, Pink Floyd, The Stones, Rhianna, so on and so forth.
- What are some of your favorite movies / television shows?
Wow, ok. Movies; Amadeaus, Super Troopers, Army of Darkness, Princess Bride, Harry Potter series, LotR series, Lost Boys, Zodiac, Pride and Prejudice, Star Wars 4, 5, & 6 TV series; Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dr. Horrible, Dexter, Game of Thrones, The Vampire Diaries (best eye candy on tv), Lost, Veronica Mars, Star Trek DS9, Rome, The Walking Dead
- Aside from The Wheel of Time, what are a few of your favorite books/series?
aSoIaF, Dark Rivers of the Heart, The Eagle Has Landed, The Hunger Games series, Harry Potter series, the Vampire Chronicles, The Dragonriders of Pern series
- What profession did you want to have when you were a kid?
I wanted to be an astronomer or a movie star. I know, not very original but the truth.
