    We're confirming every one's thoughts on our weirdness. We're suggesting Ren Faire garb at our wedding :D

    And thanks! That's my favorite TV show EVER

    I've always loved Imzadi Sedai's avatar. I wanted to find one similar to hers since I admired it so much. :$ Good taste! :p

    While this might be off the current subject. M.A.S.H. is a wonderful show, although Hogans Heroes is more to my liking. My name is a personal and pronounciation twist from a Jewish story a friend told me that I really liked. The Tzadikim Nistarim. - 36 special people. That exist at any given time throughout the worlds generations. The "Hidden Righteous Ones" and that were it not for them, all of them, if even one of them was missing, the world would come to an end.

    I changed the spelling as I wouldnt offend somebody of the Jewish faith by claiming to be one of these 36. But I enjoyed the concept. The idea. And so thus have named myself as I have.

    That sounds like a really interesting story, Zad! I'd love to hear more about it.

    Also, I love your rainbow signature!

    From what I know there is not much more story to tell. I could do some research in that department. Its more the idea I enjoy.

    My signature was a reference to one of my favorite comic series. I enjoy it as well, however, since I no longer read comics I should probably change it...haha

    Mine first name is my RL first name, spelled for easier pronunciation, and the last name Taivron is Old Tongue for "True" and "Watcher". It's "tie-VRON" in pronunciation.

    I looked up any words that had anything to do with health, and healing. I THINK mine ended up being Health of Healing or something :p

    I am not sure about Slaine, but Eir is the Norse goddess of healing, among other things. ^^

    Yeah, Sláine is a Gaelic name meaning "health". I can only guess that it's closely related to the common Irish toast "Sláinte!", which also means "good health". ;)

    Narisse is a Wise Woman in WoT. Jahar is a Warder. But, Jahar sounded better as a last name and so I turned it into something a bit more appropriate for the Two Rivers, because I live in an area with a lot of Old Order Amish.

    :cheese

    Khisanth is a Black Dragon from the world of Dragonlance which is one of the first fantasy series I read. I am a Dragon and love all things related. ^^ Danya is a play on my RL name. My first-sister, Jenarra, suggested it and it worked well all together. :)

    Risu is, according to my limited knowledge, Japanese for squirrel. I have been told on more than one occasion that I resemble squirrels =3. La is my nickname so I tacked it onto the end and Risula is fun to say! Odaravla is just a re-working of my IRL name.

    My favorite character is Aviendha, and Rae is my middle name... so Raeviendha... the last name is a Two Rivers name that incorporates my rl last name (kind of), because I fancy myself an Aiel that was raised in the Two Rivers. ^^
