Senior Member Interview
Update from the Original
Why did you choose Val'Cueran? I chose VC at the time because it was were I felt great things could happen... Despite other tendencies I might of had with my online type persona. Think of it like Harry Potter and the sorting hat.
Do you fit the Val'Cueran stereotype? Are you fiercely loyal and travel in a pack? Do you enjoy the taste of warm milk? Can loyalty be ferocious? My friends are better at answering the loyalty question. I would probably travel in a pack but sometimes it's better to travel alone or with my partner. :D As for warm milk that's kinda yuck! I hate the skin that forms on the top. :P
What male character from the novels do you think would fit best in Val'Cueran? It's hard to say really, each character has their own merits that would fit them into our fold.
How long have you been a fan of the Wheel of Time series?
Years, hard to say really would that include the gaps in between reading and forgetting the books exist. I'd say for a real about 10+ years.
How did you first get into the series?
Spare library time at college if I remember (first time). Finding the books again it was my local supermarket selling the first book cheap. Of course the British cover art is different from the rest of the world so at first I thought I were taking a chance on a new story but by the end I remembered it all (early 2005)
Who is your favorite "hero"? I don't really choose a favorite hero. Sad I know but if I had to take a chance on the heroic moments it would have to be Lan how can you not choose the king that is not a king \o/ with the sad story and all.
Favorite bad guy/gal? Lanfear no reason she just seems so appealing.
Favorite book and scene? I'd have to do a mass re-read several times. I usually only visit a book once.
If you were set down in Randland, who/what would you see yourself as? An Aes Sedai? Innkeeper? Seanchan Captain? I'd probably but a Soldier of sorts. Probably with the band.
How did you find TarValon.Net and what convinced you to stay and become a Senior Member? I found the tower by looking for more, I felt the urge to know more about this story that had me gripped. I became a senior member basically because I wanted to reach the top. I could have achieved great things in the tower.
What do you do in "real life"? I real life I do as less as possible. But for money I currently work doing anything for my uncles online business.
Do you have any hobbies? I've not had a real hobby since my teens. I do like to watch movies and play computer games and also go for the occasional walk.
What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?
Music hasn't really been that inspirational in my life but I do enjoy classical as well as rock and some loose general pop.
What are some of your favorite movies / television shows?
Many. I know just a fantastic answer and insight to the person that is me! Any show's that I like or watch they cancel them :(
Aside from The Wheel of Time, what are a few of your favorite books/series? Some of Brandon's books are ok. Other than that I like Kim Harrison.
What profession did you want to have when you were a kid?
I did once want to be a vet but after doing a course on farm animals I really didn't want to find myself with my arm up a cow's butt!
