Hello everyone, my name is Rixla. I used to be something of a forum addict back in the day and felt the old itch come back. I've never been an active member of TV.net but decided I'd give it a crack :) I'm hoping to reread the series and finally finish the darn thing :look: When I first started the series, my favorite character was probably Aviendha? Maybe? But I imagine with about 15 years in between readings, my opinion will probably change!

About me, well, I'm 28 years old, I've recently returned to college after a couple years away annnnnd that's about all I can think of right now (I'm only halfway through my coffee...).

Thank you for the welcomes! ^_^ Roheryn Sedai, you have a rather looooong name. Does it mean something special?

Rixla, welcome! Please let me know if you have any questions :hug

Also, Roh's name is long because she's using the Saladaean form of names (if I'm not misremembering my books) -- First_Name ni Maiden_Name t'Married_Name. She joined the site as Roheryn Galghandhrei, but married Ty al'Djinn since joining :) (Sorry for answering for you, Roh!)

Well, originally my name was Roheryn Galghandhrei. I'm a big LotR fan and I love horses, so that's where the first name came from. My last name came from a name generator. I met my now husband through the site, and his site last name is al'Djinn. I had my last name for... five? years before we got married and I didn't want to give it up. So instead of hyphenating, I hyphenated WoT style. There's a few other Greens hanging around who did the same thing.
But you can shorten it all the way to Roh :pleased-1:

^ This! Asandra just got there first! :D

Thanks for the welcome Nynyra, Lythe and Asandra Sedai! And thanks for the explanation! I really love names and I love them even more when they have some sort of beautiful meaning behind them <3 Which is kinda ironic since my name does not have any meaning other than I liked the way it sounded :laugh:

Thank you Kethaana Sedai, Elania Sedai, Ahmyra Sedai and Kerwin!

Seems like names we like the sound of and old holdovers that were a favorite are common! :D

Welcome Rixla!

I haven't read the series from beginning to end since....2002? ish, so I really need to reread. :look: I have a feeling every conception I have about the series will get blown apart.
