Senior Member Interview
- Why did you choose Blue?
Blue was where I felt most at home and felt where I could be myself
- Are you like the Blues in the books?
I would like to think that I am. And I don't quite see myself quite fitting into the other Ajahs. Maybe Brown? :cheese idk.
- Do you plot and manipulate?
- Do you travel a lot?
I do like to travel, see new places, etc. I do enjoy going back to some places and discovering new "gems" there.
- Do you have a favorite Blue Ajah character from the novels?
Moiraine Damodred - partly b/c she is one of two Blue Aes Sedai that I can remember and partly b/c she's a little bad ass
- How long have you been a fan of the Wheel of Time series?
A good friend in college got me hooked in 2000
- How did you first get into the series?
A good friend introduced me when we were visiting the public library and she was like "READ THIS!!!!! NAO!!!!" nah, more like "I think you'd like this"
- Who is your favorite "hero"?
Thom Merrilin ~.~
- Favorite bad guy/gal?
- Favorite book and scene?
Truth be told, it's been a while since I've read most/all of the books. ~.~ But from what I remember of them, I really say I liked the first book(The Eye of the World), b/c you meet most of the main characters of the series, it's probably one of the faster moving books. I have a couple scenes I liked from the series. The first is when we first meet Rand and Tam on the road to Two Rivers and Rand sees a Myrddraal (?) behind them. And the other scene is when Rand and Nynaeve cleanse the male half of Saidin.
- If you were set down in Randland, who/what would you see yourself as? An Aes Sedai? Innkeeper? Seanchan Captain?
It really depends on my mood or whatever I'm in. For a while, it was a female blacksmith (that phase stopped shortly after i finished the books (about 10-ish years ago?). Now I would say I would want to be apart of the Atha'an Miere.
- How did you find TarValon.Net and what convinced you to stay and become a Senior Member?
I stumbled upon it back in Feb 2010, when I got interested in the series again. I had done a web search for the series and found it as one of the hits.
- What do you do in "real life"?
Right now, I work PT at a historic theatre in DC
- Do you have any hobbies?
I love to knit, and crochet sometimes. I also enjoy the outdoors, roller derby, geocaching, and reading.
- What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?
I like a wide variety of things. Some of the bands/groups I like (but aren't limited to) are: Great Big Sea, Mumford and Sons, Green Day, Smashmouth, Blues Traveler, Marina and the Diamonds, The Pippetts, Moosebutter, and Arrogant Worms.
- What are some of your favorite movies / television shows?
I <3 the X-men movies (big Wolverine fan), Princess Bride, most of the Mel Brooks flicks (Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles), the Eddie Izzard stand up DVDs, and the Big Bang Theory.
- Aside from The Wheel of Time, what are a few of your favorite books/series?
I really enjoy the Melissa Marr Wicked Lovely series, Mist of Avalon series, The Old Kingdom Series (aka Abhorsen Trilogy), and a smattering of other books I cant think of right now
- What profession did you want to have when you were a kid?
It was to be a Dr., specifically surgeon, simply b/c I wanted to cut people open (safely mind you) and stitch them back together. I grew out of it.
