Discussion in 'Introductions' started by Tatiane Arvaignin, Apr 7, 2019.
Welcome to TarValon.net! I look forward to seeing you around the boards, and feel free to hop into any discussion you can see.
Welcome, I am sure you will find some great people here.
Welcome! I loved your story on how you started reading WoT.
Hi Tatiane! Love your name!
Thank you all! I definitely feel very welcome now!
Satrim Sedai, I hope it is not too far out of order to admit I got a bit of a chuckle out of hearing that from someone whose signature includes the title 'Master of Flame'!
Mutual kettle! I suppose this means they resorted to *grimaces* instant coffee, at the last?
Thank you, Luna Sedai! I have favorite flowers - pansies, violets, gardenias, roses, dogwoods, buttercups, tulips - but generally can be delighted by any. My favorite part of spring is when all the pastures I pass in a day turn purple with...some sort of weeds, and at times a mix of purple and yellow. What I believe are wisterias grow wild along the roadsides and are beautiful right now. The apple trees in my yard are covered in blooms, as are the blueberry bushes. There are tiny tiny tiny pale blue flowers that close in on themselves in the evening all around the mailbox. I love them all.
Interesting! Statistically, I suppose, it's inevitable that more than one person would do that, but I'm still surprised to hear of another one. I may be something heretical here, but I do remember finding EotW a bit of a letdown after WH; there are certainly many elements of the later books I will happily criticize, but I do think Jordan's prose improved markedly around The Shadow Rising, and the prose itself was what hooked me first, even in the midst of all the details I didn't understand.
Thank you! You rock as well I am impressed by anyone who attempts Japanese; I had to do a whole workbook just to nail down Cyrillic. Also sympathize on the need to pass the time in a dull job; I read more than half of War and Peace (in English!) during a work assignment where we were at the mercy of seriously glitchy computers which frequently left us unable to do much of anything for thirty minutes at a time.
I burn many things, but books are never on that list Otherwise, I do love a good bonfire!
There is no limit to the foul elixers contained within the Kaf Coffers.
Hello and welcome.
Welcome to TarValon.Net, Tatiane! I'm so glad you've made your way here.
*squeaks and attempts to drop curtsy*
*remembers she's wearing trousers and switches to bowing instead*
Thank you, Mother - I'm very glad I have, too!
A hundred thousand welcomes! You have enough posts to become a citizen, which I heartily recommend doing as soon as possible. (Info here) My PM box is always open if you have questions!
Welcome to the site! I also chose my last name because Moiraine was my favorite character, and "Caliarthan" was super close to Cairheinien.
I also wanted to drop by and say you've got way just over twice the amount of posts needed for Citizenship. I hope we'll see you in the City soon!
