  3. Michael McHelhatton will of course be immediately recognisable to many Fantasy Fans due to his portrayal as Roose Bolton in Game of Thrones. Am very interested to see him playing what is in many ways a very different role. Has a huge body of work including several dozen Movies and TV Shows. Kae Alexander is another GOT veteran but won’t be recognisable from her GOT role. While a very minor character in GOT(only 3 Episodes) she was involved in 2 pivotal scenes.
  4. The book goes much further with some of the psychological aspect, especially in regards to Ender's reactions to what is being done to him. It's been a bit since I've watched the movie but that was what I missed the most from the book was Ender's thought process. Which is, of course, the most difficult thing to show in film format. Other than that, the filmmakers did a beautiful job with the story. They did leave out some of the Peter/Valentine subplot, but that didn't bother me too much.
  5. If we want to get into more minor characters, Maria Doyle Kennedy (Ila) is great, too! She's played Mistress Cameron in Outlander, Catherine of Aragon in the Tudors, and several other big roles like Orphan Black. There's also Priyanka Bose (Alanna), but I think she's more familiar for her Bollywood/Tollywood films, which I'm not familiar with. I do know Kate Fleetwood (Liandrin) from roles such as Harlots (Nancy) and ITV's Victoria (Queen Victoria's sister Feodora) too, but she's perhaps not well known as the big names like Pike, Okonedo, etc.
  6. A post saying "DONE!" Your Mentor(s) LOL ummm I have no idea who my mentor was right now and I was mentor to a lot of people including the Amyrlin. Your Rank and Ajah/Discipline: Green Ajah but I haven't officially started the rejoining process and need to figure out how
  7. You're absolutely right. I was referring primarily to the Emond's Field folk, but I definitely should not have omitted Sophie. She's very accomplished.
  8. Well I might be a super lurker especially as I am getting ready to graduate and then transition to working full time out of the home since before my 12 year old was born. *G*
  9. Thank you! I am Purple Ajah, the name of a popular theory about the Wheel of Time (although my fave real Ajahs are the Brown and the Gray). I read the book series in 2017 and am also interested in the new show. I like many characters from the series such as Verin and Moiraine. Aside from WoT, my big interest is fantasy, and I have an interest in creative writing. In real life, I am a university student in my 3rd year (junior year in the US) and I am from the UK. I have worked abroad teaching English as a second language but alas, in present times, my life has become rel
  10. I would also point out that Sophie Okonedo (Siuan) is also pretty established! She is a Tony winner, and was very well-received in the BBC's production of The Hollow Crown (Based on Shakespeare's Histories). She and Pike struck me as the most impressive castings, but then I am biased, being from the UK, and I am not as familiar with Morte and Henney. Aside from the older, more established characters, I am mostly expecting unknowns. Especially for the younger characters. A show as large and expansive as this is a big commitment for any actor.
  11. Honestly, I put very little stock in the 'look' of the actor. Given what can be done with makeup, costumes, etc. a look can change dramatically. Rosamund Pike (Moiraine) and Daniel Henney (Lan) are both established actors with excellent work to their credit. Alvaro Morte (Logain) is wildly popular in Spain and, judging by what I've seen, is also a very good actor. The rest are mostly unknowns with two or three leading roles in small films to their credit. I've watched clips of all of them and all seem very capable. I'm excited to finally see them on screen. Can't belie

  14. This topic is so interesting. I started reading WoT (The Eye of the World) this year in January. That's my first book of the year. So probably will not take any serious series before finishing this one. I haven't read Ender's Game, but I watched the movie. It's...unforgettable. It's a pity it wasn't really popular. I really like the story and the concept. How far does the movie follow the book?
  15. Yeah, I'm a little scared at the prospect, but I just have to power through the first couple of years with her as well, and then maaaaybe I'll at least have parts of my night back 😄 It has been a while, yeah! Thank you! Yeah, he's a handful. He's starting to be mischiveous too, and have his mini tantrums. So far it's mostly just funny. I hope he'll realize that too. I think it might have been easier to have him wear them if we started earlier, like you said before age 1, but we'll see. He might take to them just fine.
  16. I freeze it into ice cubes. Then I take the cubes and put them in a freezer bag. When I want to make lemonade, I pull them out. I had a ton of lemons. They are Meyer lemons and I like them the best. Meyer lemons are native to China and they are a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. It looks like a lemon. It has lots of juice and is not as tart as a regular lemon. Today I started a new painting.
  17. I’m sorry you have to experience a difficult ex. I can only imagine how stressful it is. Is there anything you can do about the false reports?
  18. @Phaedra You are next on my list, are you able to mentor?
  19. He is so cute, Sooh. And congrats on the girl on the way. Hope he'll cone to realize that he can "see" better with the glasses on. I've worn glasses since before I was a year old, so I've just sort of adapted them as "part of me". Good luck. And more pics any time. 😊
  20. Red wine is the best!! And certainly, some of us have changed names for less. *coughs* It's good to fit with where you are now. 🙂 I'm curious to see where your journey continues to take you! ^^ (or if i find you back in my grasps... *waggles eyebrows*
  21. That's okay, I'm happier to move on from the old name to this new one. Suits me better these days 🙂 My old name was Raijin, and I definitely remember you Liitha 😄 Oh red wine is great! ❤️
  22. Last week
  23. It's like DM isn't DM without at least one streaker a week... *sighs, missing @Nargbert and his tail feathers flashing by*
