DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY
Rosée

You know you're a WoT fan when...

Recommended Posts

I've quoted WoT at friends as unconventional wisdom.

When life's got me down, I think about being hard and all Dark Randlike.

The Flame and Void is great when pressured to perform.

You say 'Let the Lord of Chaos rule!' before dumping sugar into your nephews' cereal.

 

I also try to be mule-headed stubborn, but end up acting wool-headed. Does that count?

 

PS Rosee, my earlier post wasn't entirely true. It wasn't true at all, but I'd like to do it someday.

- You now use WoT curses rather than regular, real life curses

An "Oh light!" has slipped out now and then.

If you prepare for the worst all your surprises will be pleasant.

Helped me talking to a stranger once.

Taim would be so proud of you :biggrin:

- You add the word 'bloody' everywhere in your sentences, à la Mat Cauthon ^^
I bloody well did this long before I ever read this bloody series.

 

You sniff at a lawyer and call him "boy" ...

That's another one I used to do before reading this series. Well, not so much the sniffing, I just talk down to lawyers (and everyone else).

 

When you are outside in wintertime without a coat, and simply decide to not let the cold affect you. And it works.

This as well. Either my love of WoT was prescient, or I'm just arrogant and foul mouthed.

You know the lawyer reads WoT too when he stares at you wide eyed and then blurts out: "You're a Red, aren't you??"

 

 

Interestingly enough, the character who most often uses this colloquialism is a Green...

Good to see you again, Mr Ares :biggrin:

Good to see you too, although I don't recall you being quite so upside down previously.

The Warders thought it would be a good idea to glue the furniture in my new office to the ceiling. :rolleyes:

 

Oh natch! You know you're a WoT Fanatic when your Sisters send you a for real Red Shawl! With the AS symbol on the back!

And this is why my mother stopped letting me stay with her sister.... Cocopuffs + 5 tablespoons of sugar + hot chocolate with more sugar than the cereal = 1 VERY hyper Hayden and 1 VERY, VERY brassed off mother.

I've always (read: since before reading WoT) followed the maxim "Prepare for the worst, hope for the best."

Accepting pain. That's a bigun.

 

It's a similar mental trick to the not feeling the weather, you sort of internalise a bit, feel it, let it roll over you...

 

 

I'm all about the flame and the void. When taking penalties at football, I feed all my feelings into a flaming soccer ball. I swear sometimes you know which way the keeper will dive...

I remember one particularly frightening dream involving a Gholam, icicles and me desperately looking for a foxhead medallion...

I also (especially while doing a re-read, but during other times too) use WOT curses instead of RL ones.

 

- You dream of creative ways of using the power (Airplane made of Air, anyone?)

- You plan on solving today's problems using Saidin.

- You have attempted to use the Flame and the Void in a fight. More than once. And it sort of worked.

 

heck yeah it works it also works with base nall hitting home runs

When you regularly try to tell the Aes Sedai truth when you don't want someone to know something.

When you try to follow ji'eh'toh or at least the basic idea of it, since the whole of it would take several months of speaking to a real Aiel

Mr Ares, you forgot to add that you faced everything on your own feet.;-)

 

You know you're a WoT fan when you ask yourself 'What would Semirhage do?' when in a dilemma. How's that for evil, Elgee? :myrddraal:

During Bike Week I saw a biker with a Dragon tattooed down his arm and a yin-yang Aes Sedai symbol tattooed on the other shoulder. WOT fan?

[PARTYPOOP]Sweet, looks like I get to be the nerd who mentions that a plethora of studies have shown that the ingestion of sugar by children (or anyone) does not induce hyperactivity.[/PARTYPOOP]

 

So, after that buzzkill I will mention that while I don't use WoT curses by themselves, I often mix them with real-life curses, such as: "well blood and bloody <f-bomb> ashes!" or "<gd> flaming piece of <s-word>!"

 

I also use "Light" sometimes, though. So I guess I do use one by itself, although it's more of an oath or talisman than a curse.

The point of my listing what I was given for breakfast wasn't to point out the loads of sugar, it was to point out that my Aunty was an evil woman who liked tormenting my mother when she could (they get on like a house on fire normally) in retalliation to my mother giving all her neices and nephews very noisy toys when they were young, so I appologize if that was all you took out of it, I just thought it funny that Elgee brought that situation up as I had lived through the same experiance.

Saves and arguements if I make a snooty comment back. Also last time I checked I had male appendages :blink: .

Which child, which character?

 

- When you become very, very, very good at Aes Sedai answers to questions you don't want to answer.
