    Hi, everyone!

    I'm so excited I've rejoined this community (well, by rejoined I mean I remembered I had made an account here ages ago). I was never active before, so I hope I manage to stick to posting this time around :)

    I wasn't really sure what to say, so I just decided to answer the questions that were so helpfully provided.

    1. Who is your favourite character in The Wheel of Time and why? When I first read WoT I liked Aviendha the most, probably because I related to her more than to any other characters. Now, years later and having grown up I think I'd have to choose Nynaeve. She's so fierce that I can't help but admire her greatly. Besides, Lan is one of my favourite characters, too, so there you go.
    2. How did you find TarValon.Net? I made this profile ages ago and never used it. I feel like I've known about this site since forever and just recently remembered about this community and... here I am.
    3. What do you do? (student? job? hobbies?) Sadly, I'm no longer a student like I was when I first joined. Currently, I work in supply chain management.
    4. Where are you from? What languages do you speak? I'm from Bulgaria and I speak Bulgarian, English, Spanish.
    5. What is your favorite book or author other than Robert Jordan and The Wheel of Time? Oh, that's a tough one. I read a lot, so, naturally, there are a thousand and one series/standalones I adore. The Dragonlance Chronicles were my first fantasy and you know what they say about firsts. Recently I've been reading more YA fantasy than high-fantasy (weird, I know. The older I get the more YA I seem to read). Favourite series: Memory, Sorrow and Thorn; The Kingkiller Chronicles (I can write a Dear Patrick letter, but it's going to be quite angry, so I'll abstain); The Folk of the Air. A couple of my favourite standalones are A Hundred Years of Solitude and The Red Tent.

    I'm looking forward to meeting you all! :)

    Now, I really need to go find an avatar.

    Welcome, Learha! :D I had the same experience with my favorite character. It changed to Nynaeve as I grew up.

    A hundred thousand welcomes! :welcome Hope you will stick around and get to know us. :)

    I loved the first three books! Haven't read them in years and don't have them anymore, but very nostalgic reading. ^^ I'm tempted to buy them again actually. :look

    Wow, thank you all for the warm welcome! You're really kind :$

    Thank you!

    Quite the power couple, aren't they :)
    I'm worried if I read the Chronicles now I won't like them as much :rolleyes There was another trilogy after the original one, the Legends (?), which focused on Raistlin and was very, very good.

    Hi! :) I hope so, heh. Well, I have an artist in mind, but I have to ask permission to use her art. If she doesn't agree, I'll definitely need help :p

    Welcome, Learha!! Aviendha ended up being my favorite character at about the 3rd time reading the series. :lol

    I made my profile way back in 2012, and came back in 2018, so you're not alone there! Welcome back! :joy
