Decleration of self:

I'm Lava, as it says I'm raised from the Aes Sedai track, we'll come back to that later (or not, we'll see😝). 

I first was introduced to the WOT books many, many years (eons ago), by my sister. I was visiting her for summer break, and I just remember sunshine, visiting the library, and lots of reading. That's when I first read "new spring", "the eye of the world" and started on "the great hunt", fully intending to finish it and keep reading, but I went home and life happened.

Some years later, my life changed drastically due to illness, I lost contact with most of my friends, cause I couldn't do what we used to do together anymore. I figured I could either be mad at the world or learn to accept, thrive in my own company,  and be greatful for the things I have. It can still be lonely sometimes though, and that's why I joined DM, after a lot of convincing by my sister❤️ (she basically clubbed me in the head, made the account, and dragged me in here. I hope I never get logged out cause I don't know the password..lol)

 

Decleration of commitment:

I first started out as a novice because I didn't really understand what the warders were about, so I didn't think I had a lot in common with them , and also I wanted to find my own way.

During my time in the white tower, I feel I have been fairly active, lots of fun mind you, but I did help out behind the scenes too. Like helping the keeper of the chronicles dusting of, and sorting through old raising threads, and arranged Thanksgiving with the Gray's (to mention some). 

I had an affiliation to one of the ajahs early on, but I'm proud of how I managed to put that aside, and open-mindedly visited every ajah, and also afterwards the warders (where I have been very helpful with the monthly tasks and now knightmare, if I may say so myself😁). 

In all honesty I don't feel I chose the warders, I feel it chose me, despite me fighting it and trying to fit into the tower lol.  I feel relaxed in the warders, like I can kick back and be myself (and understand what the fudge is going on lol) I just simply like myself better in the warders.

 

Decleration of intent:

Going forward, I want to continue to help rebuilding the warders to it's former glory (raising the activity level), getting to know you all better so I can find my place (and hopefully get some good friends along the way), and overall continue being a nuisance.

😈I solemnly swear I am up to no good😇
