Senior Member Interview

2009

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

I was lucky enough to be raised at the Anni Party in 2006!

Why did you choose Brown?

I chose Brown because I had many friends in the Brown Ajah, and I felt that I fit in there very well. They were welcoming and fun, and I knew that I could be honest and myself with these women without ever feeling awkward.

Are you like the Browns in the Books?

LOL, sometimes, but not usually. I don't wear rumpled clothes, or study history a lot, but I do have a tendency to browout once in a while.

Do you love books and do you daydream a lot?

I love to learn about lots of different things, and every time I move my books are the first thing unpacked! As far as daydreaming... Not really. I do talk to myself a lot though.

How was your time as Citizen/Novice/Accepted?

I had a great time as a Novice and Accepted. I was lucky enough to be given a mentor who lived only 20 min from me and so I lived a RL version of being a Novice and Accepted. It was fun.

How long have you been a member of TV.net?

5 years

What things do you do for TV.net?

Hmmm... I helped make several gowns and masks for members going to the 2006 Anni Party as my Accepted project, I have served as the Pulse of the Brown Ajah for two years now, and I am a member of the Brown Ajah trying to make others feel welcome and comfortable at TV.net.

How did you get to read the Series?

I have always read fantasy novels, and I needed something new to read. I went to the book store and just browsed the shelves. I found EotW and read the back. I thought it sounded interesting. After that I was hooked and had to read the whole series.

To whom are you bonded, if you're bonded?

I am bonded to Rodi Leg'na Krad of VC

Who is your mentee, if you have one?

I do not have a mentee :(

Who is your favorite character of the Series? Favorite Nation?

My favorite character is Cadsuane! I love her! I don't have a favorite nation... they all have their interesting quips.

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 went to the 5th Anni party in Texas in 2006, and I went to the 7th Anni party in Colorado in 2008. I recommended that everyone try to make it to a RL function. It is so wonderful to meet the members in RL.

What kind of music do you like?

I will listen to just about anything.

What are your favorite movies?

I love the A&E version of Pride and Prejudice. It is 5 hours long, but it is great!

Do you have a pet?

I have 3 cats. Fuzz,Ceilidh, and Geilynn. 1 dog, Phoenix, and two fish, Lucy and Sally.

What languages do you speak?

Just English. I took a little French in high school, but the only thing I remember is the alphabet, numbers to 10, how to say "I don't speak French", how to say "where is the bathroom?", and how to say "I love you".

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

I wanted to be an actress. I still would love to be an actress, but it is very unlikely to happen.

A short bio about yourself.

I am a mother of a beautiful baby girl, Lynnea. I enjoy reading, sewing, baking, painting, and playing with my daughter. My entire family consists of my Fiance, daughter, Fiance's son, and all our pets. We live in Minnesota, USA.

Laithean Cor'dazar, Senior Member Interview (2012)

Ajah Questions
Why did you choose Brown?

I had friends in Brown

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

I love to read, and I love to learn. Since my diagnosis with MS and the issues there in I have noticed myself becoming more and more absent minded and unaware of the present.

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

I never used to, but once it was announced that Verin was a double agent I was like, "Yeah! Kick A**!"

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

Dear lord, I don't remember when I first started reading it!

How did you first get into the series?

I was a fantasy reader since I first began to read chapter books. I just went to the bookstore looking for something new and came across book 1.

Who is your favorite "hero"?

Matrim! Why? Because he reminds me of my Husband! Gorgeous smile, charming, gets out of any trouble he creates. I have always pictured him as my hubby :P

Favorite bad guy/gal?

Hmm... I don't think we really get to spend a lot of character time with the evil folks in the books, it makes it hard to pick a favorite, or even one that I would relate to. I guess out of the ideas of them, Messana is my favorite. Secret, quiet, manipulative...Creating an army to TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!

Favorite book and scene?

I don't think I can pick a favorite.

If you were set down in Randland, who/what would you see yourself as? An Aes Sedai? Innkeeper? Seanchan Captain? I would definitely be an Aes Sedai.
General Questions
How did you find TarValon.Net and what convinced you to stay and become a Senior Member?

I found it by looking for the date when the next book was coming out. I stayed because I formed relationships and made friends.

What do you do in "real life"?

I cut hair.

Do you have any hobbies?

Playing SWTOR, crocheting, painting

What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?

Alternative mostly.

What are some of your favorite movies / television shows?

I love Castle, Psych, Criminal Minds, Star Wars (all of them), Harry Potter, Clue, Big Trouble in Little China, The Princess Bride, and most Disney movies.

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

I love the Arcane Novels by Jayne Ann Krentz. I also like most things by Patricia Rice.

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

I wanted to be an Actress. SUPERSTAAAAHHH
