    Hey everyone! I was a part of this site back around 2005-2007, and quit after life threw me some drastic changes. So much has happened in the last decade that I don't even remember what my name was at the time - though I do remember the profile picture I used before (but I'm using a different one now).

    Anywho, this site came to mind recently so I looked it up to see if it was still a thing - and here it is! It's been so long since I've read the books too, so I'm hoping to get reacquainted with it all now that I'm in a steady season of life again. I'd love to eventually join the Tower too, so long-term goals! :)

    Welcome back! The site is still here and reliable as always. :p (Or at least I've found it to be so.)

    If I may ask, what were you doing when you thought of the site again? Was it one of those in-the-middle-of-eating-cereal things?

    Thank you! :)

    And yeah, basically! I was working on an assignment for my Master's class in poetry - but no matter how much I enjoy the work, I have a hard time focusing - my brain always decides that the moment I sit down to work is the moment it should flood with all sorts of ideas, random bits of information, and memories. Most of the time, I simply push away the thoughts and wrangle myself back into focus, but this time I thought, hmm... Imma go look that up "real quick" (which turned into an hour of reading through the Library, looking up each of the Ajah headquarters again to see which one I'd pursue joining this time, and deciding to get the book series at the library to read again since it's been so long :p ). And here I am!

    Hello & welcome back! :joy

    If you're curious and can find your old avatar someone might remember your old name. It's good to have you back either way though! ;)
