Hello everyone,

My name is Llewyn Felvera, and I am a newcomer to the White Tower.

Like many others, I was first compelled to "read" (listen to) the Wheel of Time after beginning the TV show. I knew that so much would have to be excised and abridged, but I am a lore nerd (and a nerd in general), so I wanted to take in the full scope of the books. Thankfully, I have a pretty mundane office job that allows me to listen to audiobooks while I work, so I've been making my way through the series that way. I am just about to finish up The Fires of Heaven.

I thought I'd answer the questions included in the sticky post!

  • Who is your favorite character in The Wheel of Time and why?
This seems to vary widely from book to book. For books 1-4, my overall favorites would have to be Loial and Moraine, whereas in book 5 I've found myself drawn more towards Mat, Nynaeve, and another character I won't list due to potential spoilers. I like many of the more minor characters quite a bit, too.

  • How did you find TarValon.Net?
Since I'm listening to the books, there are times my attention drifts to other matters. I've taken to recapping my listening with chapter summaries and various google searches to remind myself of plot details and characters, and I stumbled upon TarValon.net during in the process.

  • What do you do? (student? job? hobbies?)
I have a fairly boring job on the administrative end of a drug addiction treatment center. In my free time, I love to read, write, ride my bike, and play video games.

  • Where are you from? What languages to you speak?
I was born in Georgia and currently live in New Orleans! I am okay-ish in French.

  • What is your favorite book or author other than Robert Jordan and The Wheel of Time?
This question is much too difficult to answer. I was a literature student in college, and I try to read widely in my free time, so it's hard to pin down. Some other favorites include Titus Groan (Mervyn Peake), The Name of the Rose (Umberto Eco), The Lord of the Rings (Tolkien), and Housekeeping (Marilynne Robinson).

I thank you for bearing with this overlong introductory post. I am very excited to get to know you and become a member of the community!

Welcome Llewyn! :welcome We're so glad you found us. :pleased-1:
I'm a huge fan of the WoT audiobooks. I actually got to meet the narrators once at a book signing, and I had them autograph my phone case since that's where I listened to them all the time. :laugh:

I hope you enjoy getting to know our community! Please reach out with any questions as you get settled in. :hug

Welcome to Tar Valon, Llweyn!! I live in Alabama, so I am right next door! If you like fantasy and lore, I think you would enjoy Brandon Sanderson, he's the one that finished The Wheel of Time after Robert Jordan passed.

Wow, I am honestly already awed at the warmth and kindness of this community in welcoming me. You all seem absolutely wonderful :yay It’s nice to know I have some geographic neighbors on here. Hello friends!!

To respond to a few previous comments: I am really into RPGs, and lately I’ve been playing a lot of Final Fantasy (currently splitting time between XII and Tactics if anyone wants the specifics!). Otherwise I love simulation and strategy games as well.

And I’ve greatly enjoyed the audiobook route for working through the series. It’s so huge that it would take me forever to read, but it’s so comforting to flick it on when I get to work in the mornings and immerse myself in a world much more thrilling than an office. Maybe someday I’ll be able to have my headphones autographed by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer :tongue

Thanks again for the welcome everyone! I’m so happy to be here.

I fully plan to read some of his books once I finish the Wheel of Time :) Thanks for the recommendation!!

Welcome to Tar Valon! I’m also a sort of neighbor. Live in northern Arkansas at the moment. I make it down to New Orleans from time to time as I work for Entergy and we have stuff there.

Oh my gosh, I had king cake FOR BREAKFAST today (and yesterday…). It’s too convenient because my roommate makes and sells vegan pastries, so we have one on the table here at almost all times
