Welcome back to another Community Round-Up. There’s been a lot happening online as the world around us crumbles.
First up, JordanCon is holding a “Fantastic Artifacts Through the Ages March Madness.” It’s a 16-bracket game with artifacts from all over the sci-fi/fantasy realm (many are Wheel of Time related, of course). Voting on the first bracket has begun: Mjolnir (Thor’s hammer, from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and also Norse mythology) vs the One Ring (from Lord of the Rings). Go cast your vote!
Earlier this week, Jaymie Greenway highlighted the most badass Aes Sedai in the Green, Red, and Gray Ajahs. Jaymie’s reasoning is spot on! And I’m so happy to talk about Red sisters we know and love. They had a rocky ending, with Elaida going so crazy, but the core of what makes Reds Red is still there and they are badasses! I can’t wait to see the other Ajahs covered—especially the White, since that is my Ajah!
In gaming news, Animal Crossing New Horizons for the Nintendo Switch is set to release this Friday (March 20th). This series belongs in the fantasy genre as well since all you do it interact with talking animals. I’m a huge fan of the Animal Crossing franchise since they released the original for the Nintendo GameCube in 2001. Also, who in this community doesn’t love building maps? The fan-made Happy Island Designer online app allows you to pre-plan your New Horizons island getaway. And that’s how I’ll be spending my time this week off work!
And let’s leave on a high note! I’ve got lots of great memes from around the WoT social media communities.
First, KatySedai on Instagram helped us all remember to wash our hands for 20 seconds.
And now the memes!
There's been a lot of discussion going around on "well-turned calves." I know that's what I was looking for when I met my spouse.
And on that note, you can see some of the best memes from Shai'tan Posting on their new page Valan Luca's Well-Turned Meme Menagerie.
As a huge fan of Nynaeve, I loved it when Sharina made an appearance in the actual timeline. I'd love some more information on how the raising ter'angreal interacts with the main world and all the parallel/mirror worlds.
That's all for now. Remember to be safe out there! If you get bored in quarantine, share your favorite WoT memes with us. Post in the comments below.
