  1. Welcome to the Black Tower, haycraftd!

    It was about 68* today, cloudy and misty. This weekend is supposed to be 80*-90*+ and humid to boot. Rain the last few days. Chicago summer is humid and 90* - 110* on average, sometimes higher the later you go in the season. It's the humidity that sucks. Did I mention the humidity? Otherwise, the jokes are true, we do suffer more than one season on a weekly basis. Lake effect. I live in the suburbs, so the temperatures I see are a bit more steady (Downtown Chicago can get very cold on really random days throughout the year.) I took a road trip the first time I went down to NOLA. Drove over Lake Pontchartrain during a thunderstorm when we rolled into town. Kinda felt like driving over the ocean. Spent most of our time in the Garden District and the French Quarter that visit. Same for the other two times I've visited. Next time, I want to venture out a bit more. Spent most of my time exploring Bourbon, restaurants, sightseeing, and the voodoo/hoodoo scene. I've lived in and around Chicago all my life, but the more I've seen of the U.S. the more I appreciate growing up around a major Metropolitan area. Chicago is tough but friendly, delectable but corrupted, vogue yet retro. The city is sprawling and easy to navigate. There's a strong sense of community no matter what neighborhood you end up in. We house a lot of incredible underground scenes, there doesn't seem to be anything 'mainstream' about the creative types this city produces. And we are funny. There is almost always a member of SNL that was a part of Second City (not that SNL is the Gold Standard for comedy, but still...) You'll always find something interesting to do when you visit our city. Also. A lot of people that live around Chicago (even 3 or 4 hours out) will just say they're from Chicago. I imagine the same is true for places like NYC or LA or someplace comparable.

    Everyone can enjoy Dad jokes. As long as none of you are secretly 13 years old.
  3. Healing Training ?

    Wait. How old is Ful? I thought he just looked very young <_< That'll make for a fine realization with Merdyn lol. I intended for there to be ladies in the carriage since Lih mentioned that, but please, whoever responds, please take it where you want to go.
  4. Welcome to the Black Tower, haycraftd!

    Welcome, sir! Super jealous that you're from NOLA. I'm from Chicago, but NOLA is my favorite travel destination. There's nothing quite like it. The food and the music and the voodoo. I love it all. What was your favorite part about NOLA? Do enjoy your stay here. I don't think we have any etouffee on hand, but there's always...
  5. Healing Training ?

    Idk. It might be fun to have all us gay BTers play wingman for Ful at a town tavern lol.
  6. Dear Sisters

    Viv is Accepted in Retro. She came to the Tower the year after the Aiel War ended and was raised to the Accepted 10 years after that (if year makes a diff. in anything, even if only dialogue together lol)
  7. Songs That Remind You of WoT

    I got one more... Crystal by Stevie Nicks... Kind of reminds me of Rand and his three ladies. Like the last song, it's the lyrics and the mood that remind me of WoT. "How the faces of love have changed turningThe pagesAnd I have changed oh, but you...you remainAgelessI turned aroundAnd the water was closing all aroundLike a gloveLike the love that had finally, finally found meAnd I knewIn the crystalline knowledge of youDrove me through the mountainsThrough the crystal, like a clear water fountainDrove me like a magnetTo the sea"
  8. Welcome to the Black Tower Oddpositions

    Thank you very much, Talmanes! I appreciate the Dad humor. In that case, can I assume you love lemon flavored baked goods? I'm a big fan of lemon bars, myself. I think heresy can be forgiven, so long as you love some type of confectionary or another.
  9. Dear Sisters

    @Jagen Sedai there are!? I was looking around on the WT website and I didn't see any for Ajahs... Could that fulfill the 'class' req for Viv? I just started an Aes Sedai RP req thread with Lavinya concerning the Greys, but I would love to do a thread concerning Red even if it didn't count towards a req. Viv is ignorant concerning the Reds, and I've developed a soft spot for them... all that being said, I am very much down for the Red class :D
  10. That is so awesome. I'll have to look into some groups. Congrats again :D
  11. Black Tower Roll Call: June 2018

    Here. Sitting outdoors at night time... With proper protection from mosquitoes of course... A drink wouldn't hurt with all of that.
  12. If you need any beta-readers, i humbly submit myself. Is it a fantasy novel or another genre? And from a writer's perspective, how has the group impacted your writing (if you don't mind my asking) ?
  13. Congratulations! That's a huge accomplishment. I've been working on my first novel for the last few months. Don't see myself finishing it anywhere in the near future. It's not easy, so I have major respect for you, Leyrann! Are you looking to publish it when it's all polished and shiny?
  14. Welcome to the Black Tower Oddpositions

    Right here! And thank you very much. Brownies. Brownies all around.
