Senior Member Interview

September 1, 2013

  • Why did you choose Blue?

I got to Blue and instantly felt at home in a way that I didn't feel anywhere else. Blue was not the Ajah I would have chosen for myself entering into the guesting process, but like my cat did at the SPCA, Blue chose me.

  • Are you like the Blues in the books? Do you plot and manipulate? Do you travel a lot?

I love to travel, I've traveled since I was 8 weeks old. I love going to new places. As for plots, some say I do plot, but I swear by the Light that I only use my powers for good. With great power comes great responsibility *nods*

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

To be honest, my favorite Blue is Siuan! Moiraine is great, but Siuan knew where all the bodies were buried, she had awesome Tourette's and she got to be Amyrlin. What's not to like? Plus, it's fun to yell "fish guts!" at the top of your lungs! :evil

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

Since 1998 or so.

  • How did you first get into the series?

When my then-boyfriend and I were dating long distance (he in New Zealand and me in FL), he used to call me on Friday nights. One of the things to talk about besides the news of the week and what was going on our lives were books. He and his best friend had been reading WOT since it first came out. I read EOTW and was instantly hooked.

  • Who is your favorite "hero"?

I used to be a huge Perrin fan, he's since annoyed me to death, but I will stand by my "man" and say Perrin.

  • Favorite bad guy/gal?

Lanfear, hands down. Girl is bada** incorporated.

  • Favorite book and scene? Favorite book?

I can't pick one. And, I don't want to give too much away, but to be honest? My favorite scene is when Elaida gets her comeuppance from the Seanchan. I read that scene about 3 times in a row with my eyes as wide as saucers.

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

I'd like to think I'd be an Aes Sedai, but I honestly don't know.

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

Nyarin Sedai and Dria Sedai play D&D in my IRC 3.5 channel. They found out I was a WoT fan and were like "No, you have to come to this site, you have to sign up, we will sponsor you, that's it, end of discussion, full stop." Then I met awesome people and decided to stay.

  • What do you do in "real life"?

Currently, I work for the Tampa Bay Rays in their ticket sales department. I sell single game tickets, so if you want to come see a great baseball team, let me know!

  • Do you have any hobbies?

Reading (duh), being on the computer (duh), cooking, latchhook, crochet, traveling, playing Skyrim,traveling, and annoying my husband

  • What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?

80's music, Enter the Haggis, rock, some r&b, classical. Pretty much anything besides country and "gangsta" rap.

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

Let's see.... TV: Big Bang Theory, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Jericho, Being Human, Star Trek, TNG, DS9, Once Upon a Time, Grimm, Chuck. Movies: Most of the Star Trek movies (without the reboots, thank you), Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, X-Men, The Avengers, Harry Potter

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

I love Mercedes Lackey, Anne Bishop, Harry Turtledove, the Harry Potter books, Jim Hines's Libriomancer series, Kelley Armstrong. I love reading female authors with strong female characters, can you tell?

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

Paleontologist, I s**t you not.
