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?

Logain Ablar

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 Tower Sworn?

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.
