  1. Paperback is out in Australia, though it is the same size as the US hardback - I have both.
  2. I am the same HTAM, i began reading at 14 and now i am 34 - i cannot even remember not having an awareness of WoT in my psyche LOL I hope you enjoy your time here at DM :)
  3. Welcome all! DM is a fantastic home on the net :) If you have any questions just ask!
  4. Amadine's RL has got in the way of everything this year.
  5. Valeri entered the details in the Novice Book and finished the entry with her own flowing signature. Sitting back in her seat Valeri lifted the teacup to her lips and sipped the sweetened tea. After a moment she spoke, "Did Kevrin Sedai explain the rules of being a Novice in the White Tower child?" Valeri knew that Farissa would not have taken the time out to speak of such things to a potential Novice but Kevrin on the other hand was much more thorough in these things usually. The hour was late but the basic rules of the Tower must be known by all, even the newest Novice to allow the Tower to function in an orderly manner, and it would never do to have the rules broken by one who did not even know she was breaking them. Valeri Kinaea Mistress of Novices
  6. A WoT religion actually sounds like a good idea.

  7. Valeri nodded as the child told of fleeing Malkier. It had pained Valeri to hear of the fall of the Golden Crane. As a boardlander herself, that the blight had consumed the magnificent lakes and lands of the Malkeri, had come as an arrow to the heart. If Malkier could fall, so too could her own homeland of Saldaea. "You have had a difficult time child, but if i know the Malkeri, it has only made you stronger, and more determined to succeed in the battle against the Dark One." "Did the Aes Sedai whom escorted you here explain what it means to become a Novice of the White Tower? About the studies and rules that must be abided by?" Valeri Kinaea Mistress of Traditional Novices
  8. Valeri was well accustomed to tears, but the sight of this child sliding to the floor with sobs racking her entire body was heart wrenching. Valeri spread her skirts and knelt on the floor. She gathered the distressed girl into her arms and held her until the tears subsided. Smoothing Liana's hair, Valeri reheated the tea she had set out previously with a thread of fire, then stood, pulling the child gently to her feet and then guiding her to the chair once more. She stirred and extra teaspoon of honey into the child's tea and set the cup in her still trembling hands. "Drink this dear, it will help to soothe you." "When you are ready, dear, we can continue our conversation." Valeri lifted her own cup and sipped her tea. Valeri Kinaea Mistress of Traditional Novices
  9. "May I ask you something?" the child seated before her asked, Valeri inclined her head and the lass continued, "Is it possible to send letters to my mother, to let her know that I am okay?" Valeri smiled, "Of course you may write your mother child. Perhaps you might tell me your name?" Valeri gently, "Obviously you are of the house of Alore, but what is your first name dear?" "Did the Aes Sedai who escorted you here explain the rules of the White Tower? What being a part of the White Tower means for you for the rest of your life?" Valeri Kinaea Mistress of Traditional Novices
  10. Valeri ushered the girl into her study, "Come in child," she said with a smile, "You may sit there." Valeri indicated the chair placed before her large timber desk. Valeri set about making a fresh pot of tea, she carried a tea tray to the desk and then poured the dark fragrant liquid into the pair of green Seafolk porcelain tea cups. She pushed one of the cup over in front of the girl and took her seat. "Now child," Valeri said lifting her cup to her lips, "Perhaps you could tell me about yourself and how you have come to be here in Tar Valon." Valeri Kinaea Mistress of Traditional Novices
  11. "If i catch you playing tricks on your Accepted teachers again you will go to the Farm for penance. Do i make myself clear." The snivelling wretch before her wiped her nose on the sleeve of her dress and Valeri almost cringed. This child had been one of her most troublesome Novices ever. Constantly talking back to her teachers, straying away from the Tower to the Warders Yards, putting live... things... in their beds, this time it had been frogs, amongst other things. If she had not held such an amazing innate strength in Saidar within her she would have been put out of the Tower long since. "Ye..ye...yes Valeri Sedai." she whimpered. Valeri was about to dismiss the child when there was a knock at the door. "You will go to your room and scrub the floor bone white, i will come to check it later." Valeri pulled the heavy door open and the sniffling girl pushed past a startled lass and bolted through the corridor. Valeri smiled at the newcomer. "Won't you come in dear? I am Valeri Kinaea, the Mistress of Novices at the White Tower. How may i be of service today?" Valeri Kinaea Mistress of Traditional Novices
  12. The knock on the door roused Valeri from her reverie. She smiled fondly at the memories and spoke aloud, "Yes? You may enter." The door open to reveal a lass in her late teens, in some countries she'd have been married off and had a couple of babes by now. The jet black hair hid her face as she curtsied deeply. As she rose and the hair fell away from her face Valeri smiled at that unmistakably Saldaean nose. "Come in child," she said warmly, "You may sit there." Valeri indicated the chair opposite her own and turned to take a second cup off the tea tray behind her. She poured the second cup and pushed it over to the raven-haired girl. "I think perhaps you may enjoy this, it's a Saldaean blend. One of my favourite reminders of where i too grew up. Now perhaps you could tell me what brings you to the White Tower child?" Valeri Kinaea Mistress of Traditional Novices
  13. Here's Penny, crashed out on the end of my bed... We have Bella as well... The lil redhead is my youngest Alyssa... do children count as pets?
