Senior Member Interview

April 2, 2010

When were you raised to Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah?

At the 9th Anniversary party, on the 19th March 2010.

Why did you choose Blue?

When I first Guested with Blue, I immediately felt at home there, and the feeling hasn't left me. I know I can always be myself and i'll be accepted in Blue, and I don't need to be everyone's BFF to know that my Ajah cares for me and supports me in whatever I do. Blue just fits me perfectly. ^^

Are you like the Blues in the Books?

In some ways; yes. I can be determined to achieve a goal, and passionate about my causes, but I think i'm a little more open and easy going than the traditional book blue.

Do you plot and manipulate? Do you travel a lot?

I love travelling and have gone quite a few places. I'd say it's a passion of mine, and even though i've just come back from my last overseas holiday - i'm already planning the next one!

But if I told you about my plotting and manipulation i'd have to kill you...

How was your time as Citizen/Novice/Accepted?

Wow, that's a looong time ago! Well, I was one of the first citizens (which i'm proud to say!) and I remember my time as citizen and novice as being an incredibly spammy time (haha). Some of my close friends and I all joined at the same time while we were still at school, and clearly TV.net is a lot more interesting than schoolwork so we spent pretty much all day online together. It must have been a nightmare for the admins to deal with us!

I really enjoyed both times I experienced as Accepted. It's a time when you've been a member for a while so people know you quite well and you've made a lot of friends, and you can really spend the time to get to know the Ajah's and where you fit in the community.

What things do you do for TV.net?

I'm currently working for Ubahsur in the Department of Administration.

I have previously been Sitter and Head of Ajah for the Grays, worked as Deputy and Constable of the City, and been Assistant Editor of the TVT

How did you get to read the Series?

I picked up book 7 from my library, not realising that it was part of a series. After getting a quarter way through it and being thoroughly confused, I decided to go find book 1 and figure out what was actually going on.

Have you ever attended any Real Life Functions? Did you like them if you did, and why? (Why do you think people should come to any future functions?)

I have attended 2 official Aussie tower parties, and I have just recently attended my first Anni party which I loved!

I can be very shy around people I don't know well, but everyone is just so nice and easy to get along with that I felt comfortable straight away. I think everyone should go to a tower party if they get the opportunity, you understand people so much better and make so many new friends!

What kind of music do you like?

I have a very eclectic taste in music. The music that speaks to my heart is grunge rock music, but my iPod has music of almost every genre. Some of my non-rock favourite bands have been punk, hip hop, folk and indie! The only genre I don't really listen to is new country, and I would only rarely listen to classical music.

What job do you have?

I'm currently involved in administration, though my passion is for interior design and I intend to move into the real estate industry.

Do you have a pet?

I have 2 cats. One is a fluffy black moggy called Miffi who i've had since I was a child and she is the most loveliest kitty ever! And the other is a British Shorthair called Jinx who is infatuated with my boyfriend but apparently hates me. :P

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

My mother has written evidence that at age 5, I aspired to be a cat when I grew up.

Moiraine or Siuan?

Moiraine, for sure. Siuan has a few too many tickets on herself for me.

Tea or coffee?

Coffee, always! And lots of it, thankyouverymuch!

Books or movies?

Hrmm... I love both really. When you feel like reading, a movie will never satisfy you and vice versa.
