You have to EARN that. That being said, I will gladly tell you what I think your name would be.
Posted February 15, 2013
Dearest Narg, Why have you not eaten Verbal yet?
I actually have a Wolfkin Name, that I rather like. It is Brook Melody. This was given to me by members of the WKSG after I reached the last rank of Elder. I rather like it. It expresses the idea of a calm brook through a forest, with the water flowing gently against rocks and the dirt on either side, and just flowing along. I think it's beautiful, and it fits me... somewhat. It is more like the person I want to be.
It is the wolf name I would WANT Hopper to give me.
That being said, my name would likely be more like Burning Leaf, in that I'm rather hotheaded, and I seem to float around against everything. Or perhaps Burning Rock, since I'm also hardheaded and fling myself against things. And I would probably hate it.
In the Wheel of Time, a Wolfbrother (or Sister) is someone that develops a relationship with Wolves and gains some Wolfish abilities. This includes enhance sight and smell, the ability to tell emotions, and joining the Wolf Dream (Also known as Tel'aran'rhiod).
But, to the Wolves that a Wolfbrother grows attached to, our names are not correct. I would never be known as Christine. That doesn't express the image that is needed. The emotion that a Wolf feels.
Perrin is known as Young Bull, because he is young and strong.
Elyas is known as Long Tooth, because of the long knife that he carries.
The Question I pose to you is this :
Hopper and his pack have just run into you. You are a member of the pack. You are Wolfkin. What do they call you? And why? Do you agree with the name?

Not to be a stick in the mud, but your sig has to be 500x125. I can fix that for you real quick?

... Luckers? :(
I can't imagine my life without Wheel of Time, and DM too. I joined DM in 2003, and that was right as I started High School. It got me through those horrible teen years, and now as an adult, it still fills my life while my husband is deployed.
I also love Stormlight Archive! I have reread The Way of Kings so many times, I might be obsessed.

There is more to DM than just RP and the Social Groups, chuckles! There is also discussion.

I started uploading the video last night when I went to bed... still at 75%. I'm going to just get Harriet's reading up, as that is the BIG one that I think needs to be shown in the report.

Thanks. I also have video but I can't upload those till tomorrow morning, if you want to wait till then to post it.
Bittersweet. That word seemed to be the common answer from Team Jordan as they talked about the completion of A Memory of Light. After 23 years since the first publishing of The Eye of the World in 1990, the long journey has come to a completion. Harriet McDougal, widow of the late Robert Jordan, and Brandon Sanderson, who has completed the last three books of the series with the help of notes, were joined by the other two members of Team Jordan, Maria Simons and Alan Romanczuk. While Harriet continued to edit the series as Brandon wrote it, Maria worked on continuity, and Alan worked on the great battles and commanders. The entire team was present for the Q&A and signing, and answered a number of questions for those present.Truly, it was bittersweet, listening to Harriet reading the first paragraph of Chapter One in AMOL...or TEotW. That first paragraph, which has stayed with us for a generation, elicited silence from the entire crowd as they simply sat, watched, and listened. It was truly emotional, hearing those words.
Ta'veren Tees was on site, selling T-shirts, playing cards, posters, and giving away Wheel of Time and Dragon temporary tattoos. Across from them, the last three books of the series were for sale from Barnes & Noble. The entire event was hosted by the College of Charleston Addlestone Library. While most of the action was downstairs, Wheel of Timers flocked to all three levels to look down from the balcony at the Q&A and signing below. Special Collections for the College had a number of displays available, containing other works by Robert Jordan, the books in various languages, and even first draft copies of The Eye of the World, along with pencil markings.
Hunter Wentworth showed parts of his documentary on the life of Robert Jordan, The Wit of the Staircase, while also recording over three hours of video to help complete the work. Karen Campbell spoke about the Waygate Foundation, which brings together fantasy and science fiction authors and fans to help on global philanthropic endeavors. Jennifer Liang spoke about the upcoming JordanCon in Atlanta, which Brandon Sanderson will be attending this year. The theme is Tar VaCon.Seventeen questions were asked at the Q&A from fans, eliciting a number of responses and laughter from the crowd. The entire event was a spoiler free zone, making it safe for anyone reading this report to continue reading and enjoying all of the Questions and Answers listed below. Around three hundred people participated in the signing, and the Team signed for almost three hours, including taking photos and personalizing books. Backpacks and paperback copies of The Way of Kings were given away to the crowd, along with some bumper stickers and iPhone covers.
Given that the doors to the library opened at 10:00 and the event didn't start until 3:00, the library was filled with fans reading their new copy of AMoL or just chit chatting with other fans. New friends were made, along with making plans for JordanCon. It was rather exciting and people enjoyed getting to hang out with other fans. All in all, it was a wonderfully successful event that went smoothly.Each of the Memory Keepers wanted to share a few thoughts on what they loved the most about the day:"Getting to listen to Harriet read [the first paragraph from the EotW/AMoL]" -Brandie
"Getting to see Team Jordan" -Suzanne"Talking with Harriet [while she was signing books]" -Billie Jo"The fan girl freakout" -Megan"Meeting Christine [He was the serious one of the group]" -Perry"Being the flapper... err...flapping for Brandon and Harriet..." -Kate
"Giving them a gift from the Wolfkin Social Group" -Christine
Jennifer Liang and Ta'veren Tees also had an exciting day, and shared their best moments:"Brandon writing in my AMoL" -Jenn
"Selling the Loial shirts" -Kiley from Ta'veren TeesEven Team Jordan had a little something to say to all of Dragonmount!"My Love, Hugs, and Kisses" -Harriet"Hi, Dragonmount!" -Maria"Extra Extra! Read all about it! We love you guys! Thanks for your support over all the years." -Alan*smiles* -BrandonAll in all, everyone was very happy!

L, we don't tell them till AFTER they come to play.
I don't think that the fandom could ever really die. Not after 20 years.
I love how we all call him Boopsie.
Come to the Social Groups! We don't bite!
What chuckles said. SG and RP. Except SG. I'm everywhere down there.
Welcome to DM!

Hi! Welcome to DM!
Lots of people to share with. We have some discussion boards, some role playing boards, and then the social group boards! Explore them all, and stop down at the Wolfkin in the Social Groups for some Perrin love.

I say go for it. I've been doing a reread, but I won't be done in time for AMOL.
They are terrible, I say. Absolutely horrid. I have to spank them all daily.
They caught the lake on fire. And ducttaped the elders to a tree. Can't leave them alone for a minute.
