Tower Sworn Interview

February 5, 2013

Why did you choose Brown?

I chose Brown for lots of reasons, but they can be boiled down into two simple statements: a) it was the only place where I fit, and b) I am extremely Brown in RL. Put the two together, and the choice was a no-brainer.

Are you like the Browns in the books? Do you love books and have a tendency to daydream?

Yes. I do love books, and I always have one on the go. I love to learn, and I am a naturally curious person. I also like to day dream, and can get easily distracted and "brown out". I've noticed that it is the worst during exams.

Do you have a favorite Brown Ajah character from the novels?

Verin. Who else?

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

Umm... 6 or 7 years? I can't quite remember.

How did you first get into the series?

My brother gave me The Eye of the World for Christmas when I was in my early teens, and I've been hooked ever since.

Who is your favorite "hero"?

It's changed during the course of the series. It's been Mat for a long time. But I absolutely love Rand's storyline over these last two books.

Favorite bad guy/gal?

I don't think that I have a "favourite". Lanfear, and possibly Moridin, just because he is so crazy.

Favorite book and scene?

I don't have a favourite book. But my favourite scenes? Rand completely surprising Cadsuane in ToM. The charge of Malkier / Borderlanders in AMOL. Anything between Rand and Moridin in AMOL.

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

Aes Sedai!

How did you find TarValon.Net and what convinced you to stay and become Tower Sworn?

I don't remember what convinced me. I think it was the idea of being able to call myself "Aes Sedai" that did it. That, and I'm a total geek. :p

What do you do in "real life"?

I'm a student, working towards a degree in Anthropology. Beyond that, I haven't decided yet.

Do you have any hobbies?

Reading, singing in my choir and playing my violin

What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?

Medieval, classical, fiddle, world music........

What are some of your favorite movies / television shows?

Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones, Star Trek. I don't watch a lot of movies, but I did enjoy the Lord of the Rings films.

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

I love Tolkien's work, and also Brandon Sanderson, Ursula K. LeGuin, and Tamora Pierce. I also really enjoyed Ender's Game, by Orson Scott Card, Alan Dean Foster's trilogy "Damned", David Brin's Uplift books..... I mostly just read sci-fi and fantasy.

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

Paleoanthropologist, dog trainer, space scientist...
