    Books, harp, anything ancient (rocks, archaeological stuff etc), random craft things, writing, composing, general randomness and nerdy-ness!
  1. Melanas - Novice Date bars are a favourite for me, and other forms of fruity goodness, alongside ultra-dark chocolate. I don't particularly like the taste of stuff that's overloaded with processed sugar.
  2. *Belatedly claps Sunshine's speech* I concur! *Watches the Lenlo-tug-of-war* Um... good luck with that Lenlo! At least you're popular!
  3. When you misread this post to say 'Moiraine' and think, 'Light! There's actually a place called Moiraine?'... then you realise your mistake, and just have to run a search in Google Maps to see if there actually is a place called Moiraine...
  4. Thank you to all who helped me make this decision, I chose the way of the Aes Sedai.
  5. Melanas - Initiate Summer definitely, I love the warmth and green (well, when we actually get warm days instead of the inevitable cold grey drizzle).
  6. Ooh, Ancient Egyptian sounds very interesting. Swedish is my first language, and I speak English. I used to be able to speak/understand Spanish, but since I stopped taking it in school I've lost most of it. Ancient Egyptian is interesting! (Mostly comprising of wealthy people demanding offerings, or proclaiming about all the good things they've done in their lives (There's kind of set things they would say like 'I gave food to the hungry and I clothed the naked' as well as giving foot-massages to the lowly. Somehow I don't quite believe them...). I know what you mean about losing languages though. I wish I'd been able to continue French properly after high school. It's kind of putting in all that effort then watching it slip away. It's just difficult to practice and keep up with it!
  7. Hey Raena, don't worry about it. Have to say I love languages too. I'm not fluent in anything other than English, but I seem to pick up random bits and pieces (plus I constantly seem to be having to try and understand French, Italian or German books for my course). I often end up buying language guides on a whim (and I actually did a summer school in Ancient Egyptian last year, very interesting). Do you speak many languages?
  8. Hello Browns, I'm another initiate I'm from Nottingham, UK (or at least that's where I'm studying at the moment, during the summer I'm closer to Liverpool!), currently studying for a degree in Music. I've only been reading the books since around the end of December (thus I haven't actually finished all the books that are currently out, and am currently stamping my feet impatiently waiting for Play to deliver the next one!), therefore I don't quite feel qualified to judge favourites and things just yet (also hence my jumbling around of question answers!). ;) I think I came across Dragonmount through random googling... can't remember the exact circumstances! I'm also member of the Artists, Crafters and Writers' Guild. I joined the White Tower and Warder as it seemed one of the most appealing first off (though I'll probably stalk others a bit more when I have the time to! Just figured it was a good place to start.) The airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow? What is this, some kind of Spanish Inquisition? Other books series I enjoy = a lot! I just finished reading the Hunger Games (my filler whilst I wait for the post!), but I also really like Anne Rice, Tolkien, Tales of the Otori, Kelley Armstrong's 'Otherworld' books... I'll stop there before I end up spamming an enormous list! As for my question - Books aside, are there any sorts of topics that are quite commonly raised here? Any sort of specific interests that relate to Brown?
  9. Welcome to Shayol Ghul!

  10. 198 - When it starts snowing, you pull your scarf up across your face to keep your nose warm, and then giggle because you can pretend to be Aiel. 199 - You then walk past a bunch of LARPers and start thinking 'trollocs!', really wishing you had your spear handy!
  11. Thanks! And don't worry, I'm definitely moving with caution!
  12. Hello all! I'm new here (obviously!), currently reading the Shadow Rising at the moment (so still a fair way to go!). I only started reading the series about four weeks ago, but I've already got Robert Berry's 'Soundtrack for the Wheel of Time' and the Blind Guardian inspired songs on loop on my mp3, as well as spending far too much time running around demo levels of the '99 game playing cat and mouse with the Whitecloaks! Can't wait to read the rest of the series and talk to people who actually understand the references I've suddenly started spouting! ;)
