Hi everyone! I've been around the WoT community for most of my life, but never really got active on here. Found the series in 1998 and it never really left me.

I don't really have a favourite character, but I heartily appreciate references to Norse mythology (Thor, Odin, Mjolnir, etc...). If I had to pick one of the OG crew, I'd pick either Nynaeve or Elayne. I don't hate on Egwene like a lot do, nor do I hate on Gawyn. Galad, on the other hand, is a four letter word in my opinion.

If I could choose an Ajah, I would choose the Green. Back when I first started reading the series, I would have been a Brown or a White, but I'm solidly in the Green now.

Feel free to ask me whatever you like! It's good to be here :)

:welcome

I prefer Nynaeve and Galad of the four myself, despite Galad joining the zealots. Gawyn is just too annoying :laugh:

Glad you decided to join!

Thanks! I'm like... 90% sure I had an account here a long time ago, but none of my email addresses came up with an account in the system, so if I did it was purged lol. No great loss. Changes over time made that account less than accurate, I think, anyway.

Hey Azlan, welcome (back) to the community. I'm brand new here, but I'm finding it super intriguing and welcoming. I sort of enjoy Galad in a strange way. I think his joining the Children was a good move for him personally, and I think him taking the reigns there was the best thing that could have happened to them. Asceticism is strange to me, but I think it does have a place in society :)

Hi Azlan, and welcome! Glad you’re here. :D

Tuon is one of my favorites too.

Welcome Azlan! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who loves Elayne! :laugh: Aviendha is my favorite, so Elayne is definitely up there for me. :pleased-1:

Welcome! I'm glad you joined us! I don't hate Gawyn as much as most other people do, but he's not one of my top character pics. I do love the Mat/Tuon relationship though.
When I first read the books I thought I would have been Brown but upon further self-reflections I"m Gray through and through. :D

When I first read the books, I thought I'd be a White, and... oh. :laugh:

Galad is...a complex character. He has a difficult arc. :look: He's not my favorite by any means, but he's also not irredeemable.

Welcome! I'm not the largest fan of either of Elayne's brothers, either, but I'll take Galad over Gawyn any day.

For a large number of years, I also always identified as Brown or White. These days, I don't know. I just know I'm not Gray or Yellow. Everything else is up for debate :)

I've speculated before that a community centered around books is always going to have a large brownish contingent. :)
