Senior Member Interview

November 20, 2018

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

Since 2001. I was a freshman in high school.

How did you first get into the series?

A teacher recommended I read Eye of the World for a group project. He said that if I liked Harry Potter, I would like the Wheel of Time. He...was not wrong. Anyway, I was the one in the group given the task of actually reading the book, and everyone else came up with the actual project. A pretty good deal, in my opinion. Even after we gave the project, I was still in the world, so I picked up the Great Hunt afterward.

Who is your favorite "hero"?

Perrin. Awkward introvert who loves wolves and is confused by people in general. Yup, that’s me.

Favorite bad guy/gal?

Graendal. She’s very comfortable in her skin, and confident in what she does. Not only that, she’s a woman who owns her sexuality, but is incredibly intelligent, and is also seen as incredibly intelligent. That’s really unusual to see in a female villain in this genre, especially in a book series written by a man.

Favorite book and scene?

The Gathering Storm, when the Wise Ones tell Aviendha she’s ready for her second trip to Rhuidean.

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

A Wise One, of course.

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

I heard of it in other WoT communities. The first time I joined, my life was too chaotic to include TV.net. When I came back, I found a community full of supportive and loving members that were there for each other, no matter how long someone had been there.

What do you do in "real life"?

I work in Customer Care in a small pharmaceutical company.

Do you have any hobbies?

Drawing and writing mostly. I love to roleplay Wheel of Time too.

What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?

Japanese rock music, also rock music in general. Hamilton. I have a pretty eclectic taste in music. Just whatever makes my ADD happy at the time.

What are some of your favorite movies / television shows?

Supernatural, Game of Thrones, Tangled, Brave, Stardust… Don’t make me get started on my favorites in anime, please. That will take forever.

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

Stardust, Good Omens, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Harry Potter, Dresden Files

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

I wanted to be a teacher, like my mom.
