Senior Member Interview

December 22, 2011


  • Why did you choose Brown?

There was no other choice for me. The Browns on this site are a wonderful group of women (and Warders). We're diverse and laid back.

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

Yes. I'm working on a doctorate in History and I work part-time at a bookstore. My life is books. Hopefully, I'm not as frumpy as some of the Browns portrayed in the books though.

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

Saerin

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

I first read Eye of the World when I was thirteen, so nearly fourteen years now.

  • How did you first get into the series?

My dad picked the first book up for me, though he has yet to read them.

  • Who is your favorite "hero"?

I'm partial to Mat.

  • Favorite bad guy/gal?

I have to actually remember characters? I don't know. All of the Forsaken seem pretty petty. I like a little more complexity with my villains.

  • Favorite book and scene?

The first is probably the best, but then again, I haven't read it since I was thirteen... I did really enjoy the scene in (was it Crossroads of Twilight?) in which Tuon completes the marriage ceremony with Mat.

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

Seanchan innkeeper. I would be very good at honoring the Empress, may she live forever.

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

I happened upon it after one of the books was published in 2004 and later returned to the site in 2006. Our community is diverse and a wonderful place to meet amazing people from different parts of the globe.

  • What do you do in "real life"?

I'm a poor graduate student and teaching assistant. In short, I do a lot of reading, complaining, grading, and BS-ing.

  • Do you have any hobbies?

I enjoy reading and writing for pleasure (not essays or dissertations), running, comic books.

  • What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?

Eclectic. Anything from Bach to Elvis to LCD Soundsystem.

  • What are some of your favorite movies / television shows?

I love Miyasaki's work: Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, etc., Goodbye Lenin!, the usual nerd fare, like Star Wars, LotR. A few television shows I enjoy are Arrested Development, Mad Men, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Batman: The Animated Series, The Wire.

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

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami I don't know - I read a lot of history. It's very difficult to list just a few books...

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

Veterinarian. I love animals.

Super Official and Srs Bzns Brown Interview

July 12, 2019

What's your blood type?

O-

Zodiac sign?

Pisces

Hogwarts house?

Slytherin

Myers-Briggs type?

INFP last time I checked, but I sometimes think this is what I *aspire* to be... not what I actually am.

D&D alignment?

Neutral good

Favorite color?

Blue or Gray

Favorite cryptid?

I'm partial to the Chupacabra or the Jersey Devil. I blame X-Files.

Favorite member of the MCU?

I suffer from comic book movie fatigue at the moment. But Thor.

Favorite Star Wars character?

Really, really difficult to choose one. In the new films, I like Kylo Ren, but I think it's because of Adam Driver. Probably Obi-wan. If you had asked me when I was fifteen, I would have told you Wicket or Logray the Ewok Medicine Man. :p

Favorite letter?

ß (ss--German)
