Senior Member Interview

December 6, 2011

  • Why did you choose Brown?

I have a degree in Anthropology, mainly because I love studying things for the sake of studying. I always enjoyed the research part of papers a hundred times more than the actual writing part. Plus, I felt like I fit in pretty well

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

I love books, and now that I have a nook I have been reading so much more. The worst part of moving is packing up all my books! I do tend to space out sometimes, but that is because I have so many things going on in my head at once

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

I'm sure I would not be the only one to say Verin. Spoiler alert: Her ending was absolutely perfect. Such a game changer.

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

since 1996

  • How did you first get into the series?

I started reading then when I got the first seven in a sci fi box of books at a garage sale.

  • Who is your favorite "hero"?

Egwene

  • Favorite bad guy/gal?

Logain

  • Favorite book and scene?

Book 4 is my favorite, because SO much happens. Aiel waste and getting the dragons, meeting Avihenda, the breaking of the tower, all sorts of goodies. But the best scene I could keep reading is the aforementioned scene with Verin that happens much later.

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

One of the Sea Folk, I have too many tattoos to pass for anything else. I'd *just* have to get good at sailing.

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

I googled some question when rereading the books the summer after I graduated high school, and tripped upon the Novice ezboards (they weren't attached to the main tower at that point) I fell into it, and met so many people that I consider friends, that I stuck with it.

  • What do you do in "real life"?

Ha, I'm a waitress and bartender at a chain steakhouse

  • Do you have any hobbies?

Knitting/crochet, nailpolish recently, but mainly reading and not doing the dishes

  • What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?

my last.fm is last.fm/user/pylar and that lists it all

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

Bones, Breaking Bad, How I Met Your Mother, Raising Hope, The Big Bang Theory, Top Chef, etc.

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

Anything by Garth Nix, I enjoy YA Dystopian, really the list is too long to put here and it changes all the time

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

Train Engineer
