    I'm interested in Sci-Fi (particularly Star Wars and Dr Who), fantasy, all manner of book, architechture, trees and history.

    Oh wow, I totally forgot about stealing the Seat. Glad you liked them!
  2. LoA/LoLA for about six months. Going to focus on school, it's my last 6 months.
  3. Blank, have you read Inkheart? That book has a character that did exactly this.

    Just my general stuff.
  5. I loathe the fact that my full name is shared by two gun smugglers. It doesn't feel like its mine, two other people are using and abusing it at their own disgression. Middles names mean something to some, especially if you have a common names. I know a few people who hate their first name, and go by their middle name. BB and I discussed names a couple of nights ago, its quite interesting. I'd shove her in this thread, but she's busy. Fantasy ability.... that's a tough one. I don't know if I'd want one. I'd be the guy stubbornly doing things despite a lack of said power.
  6. Don't sell it short. I have a friend who desperately wants to go to Kent for.... reasons unknown. I've got no clue, to tell the truth. I love where I live, I've lived in suburbia all my life! We've got beautiful beaches about an hour away in a couple of directions, and there are beautiful mountians and forests as little as 5 minutes away by car. I often just go wandering around, things are quite clear, I can wander through the mountains in the direction of BB's house, though that's three hours away on foot. You can get up on a mountain just down the road, and see all the way across the city to the ocean. And when I say city, I mean a tiny huddle of rather pathetic skyscrapers, surrounded by kilometres upon kilometres of suburbia. We really have an enormous suburban sprawl. And the futher away you go in any direction, the prettier things get, for the most part. Great big rainforests, and national parks, spectacular mountains and waterfalls and everything. Though you have to drive for that. A couple of hours away is a crater like area that I believe has the oldest rainforest in the world, it's pretty incredible. Went there on a biology camp. I should stop rambling.
  7. 402. When one of the reasons you want to join Facebook is to get all the WoT jokes. 403. When the other is to talk to DMers.
  8. Starrik- Manishma (I assume I'm allowed to say that....) I would choose option A, on the proviso that as soon as I was in the slightest way mad, I was killed. Either that, or kill me to start off with. I'd rather die than a. hurt those I care about b. be chained or c. rot away. The idea of the Seanchan repluses me, I can't stand them in the books.
  9. Declaration of Self: I started reading the Wheel of Time nearly a year ago (wow, a year? Time flies.) The Bard Babe, another member of this site who is my best friend both outside of and on the internet, convinced me to read the series after much pestering, and after that convinced me to join Dragonmount. It is my fifth Social Group, and one of three that I remain active in. Declaration of Commitment: I must admit, I have not been the most committed as Algai. While I have been around the White Tower and Warders Yard, I have not posted as much as I could have, preferring to enjoy the antic of the Warders and Aes Sedai from a back seat. I have participated in a vareity of event, the most enjoyable of which must have been the Star Wars week, which I regret not working with the organisers of. Because I've gone all over Dragonmount, most of my friends here transcend social groups, but it has been nice to meet Arez al'Loke, Million, Chuckles and Cindy, to name a few. (Admittedly, even these probably haven't seen much of me at all.) My most memorable moment would have to be organising to steal the Amyrlin Seat (the throne, not the person) of which I was the mastermind! And which, was never actually returned. Huh. Declaration of Intent: I intend to sink deeper into the Warders group, and to get to know the people who inhabit it a lot better, as I regret not doing that so far. I haven't yet become involed with a discipline, or any specific part of the Warders.
  10. I have never read the Foundation series either. I can't remember if maybe I started on the first book, but I don't think I ever did. I remember that I enjoyed Asimov's "Robot" series though, as well as some of his short stories. One classic science fiction book that I have been hearing a lot about lately, and that I think I might finally read, is Ender's Game. Personally, I loved that series. I thought Foundation was brilliant. nooooo Colour of Magic! and I definitely agree about the ending of His Dark Materials. Loved the series, loathed the ending. I own the books, but will never reread them.
