Senior Member Interview

October 7, 2011

  • Why did you choose San d'ma Shadar?

I talked with Wil a lot in IRC, which led me to getting to know more of the SDS guys and it just went from there

  • Do you fit the San d'ma Shadar stereotype? Do you enjoy the female anatomy and copious amounts of alcohol?

Love the female anatomy, and I enjoy alcohol but haven't consumed copious amounts in a long time

  • What male character from the novels do you think would fit best in San d'ma Shadar?

Matrim, he has a way with women that I envy, and started the band of the red hand

  • How long have you been a fan of the Wheel of Time series?

I believe I first started reading it in 2003 and loved it then

  • How did you first get into the series?

My aunt sent me the EotW as a christmas present, I didnt read it for a few months as I was into a different series first, but I am glad I did read it eventually.

  • Who is your favorite "hero"?

Bridgette, shes hot as hell

  • Favorite bad guy/gal?

Lanfear, gorgeous and deadly, what a perfect mix

  • Favorite book and scene?

Knife of Dreams, I love the relationship between Tuon and Mat

  • If you were set down in Randland, who/what would you see yourself as? An Aes Sedai? Innkeeper? Seanchan Captain?

Asha'man if I had a choice in the matter, who cares about a little taint if I can obliterate a whole city

  • How did you find TarValon.Net and what convinced you to stay and become a Senior Member?

Oddly enough, I was browsing the web and came across a link about couples who met and got married because of, I found it kind of silly but was intrigued enough to look up the site. After joining I loved it and most of the people so much that I stayed, though I do have times where I just drop off the map for a couple months into "hibernation" but I always seem to come back.

  • What do you do in "real life"?

I work in the IT field, specifically Networking systems administration and cybersecurity.

  • Do you have any hobbies?

Gaming, drinking, hanging out with friends

  • What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?

Rock primarily

  • What are some of your favorite movies / television shows?

Big Bang Theory, Dark Knight, Iron Man, V for Vendetta... etc.

  • Aside from The Wheel of Time, what are a few of your favorite books/series?

I used to love the Animorphs series and the series of Xanth by Piers Anthony. 1984 is hands down my favorite book, The Power of One is a close second. I also really enjoyed the Harry Potter series and The Hunger Games trilogy. Oh and I can't forget the Inheritance Cycle.

  • What profession did you want to have when you were a kid?

-I think it was a sports athlete
