    Hey everyone! Super excited to be joining the community!

    I first discovered the Wheel of Time in 2012 when my aunt randomly lent me her copy of the Eye of the World. Suffice it to say I fell hard and I fell fast, and I can remember powering through the books. I've just recently started a reread (currently on the Great Hunt) and I can already feel myself being so completely sucked in.

    1. Who is your favorite character in The Wheel of Time and why?: I can't remember who my favorite character was the first time around, but currently it's Nynaeve.
    2. How did you find TarValon.Net?: A Twitter spiral.
    3. What do you do? (student? job? hobbies?) Currently a Cultural Resources Intern at a National Park. I start Grad School for Archaeology in August. Hobbies: reading (duh), writing (badly), hiking (as close to exercise as I'll get), wine drinking (enough to replenish all the calories lost during hiking and then some)
    4. Where are you from?: Southern Illinois
    5. What is your favorite book or author other than Robert Jordan and The Wheel of Time?: That's hard because it changes all the time. Currently, my favorite recent read is Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston,

    Welcome. I'm rather new to TarValon.net myself, but so far have found everyone to be very friendly. I'm still working my way through the series and am completely taken by the epic world created.

    Haha, right!? The world is amazing. I'm only a bit into my reread, but I can already tell that there will be a lot more to learn and pick up on in future rereads.

    If it helps, you can click the "+quote" button in the bottom right corner of people's posts. You can add as many quotes as you'd like in order to reply to individual people and not multipost. ^^
