    Hello to all fellow fans of WoT. My name is Verix though in the alternate reality we call home I am called Noah. I was given the first three books in WoT as a Christmas present and acquired the rest as soon as I could get through them, culminating in Memory of Light, and enjoyed it immensely. Some other books I love are the works of Jacqueline Carey (start with Kushiel's Dart), plus I like Tamora Pierce and John Flanagan when I'm in the mood for lighter fare. Fae and I went to high school together and it was she who keyed me on to this site and invited me to be a part of it, so really you have her to blame for all this. I worked in radio as a news reporter and on-air personality for about a decade after college, and am currently a writer and am taking classes to get a teaching certificate. Were I a woman able to channel I would have wound up in the Green Ajah, or if I were to be a warder, I would likely be paired with a Green. That's all I have at the moment, let me know if you have any questions for me, and I am happy to on board and look forward to interacting with you all.

    Welcome, Verix! My phone tried to autocorrect your name to Verizon just now. :lol

    Were I in the books, if either be a White or a Green that everyone thought should be a White. :p

    It’s nice to join a place like this and have a friend to show me the ropes. She also was able to edit my avatar to 200x200, a task I was failing woefully, lol. I may not be the most tech savvy dude...

    Welcome Verix! I love the Jacqueline Carey Kushiel Books, as well!

    For the longest time, everyone said I was a White that everyone thought should be Green :lol Really, I just couldn't be book Gray; all other Ajahs are negotiable.

    Welcome :)
    Yes, the Kushiel books are amazing. I’m actually due for a re-read if them.
