Hi everyone. I'm new here on TL, but I've been a lurker on various WoT boards, newsgroups, blogs, etc for about 10 years now. I keep seeing postings and theories from TL show up, so I decided to finally bite the bullet and join you all over here.

I started reading WoT 10 years ago, right after PoD came out in paperback. I currently have WH, CoT, and KoD in hardback and the rest in paperback, so that more than anything should tell you how long I've been in the fandom. I just finished my first reread (yes, I know), and I'm just biding my time until the end of October (my oldest daughter turns 3 on 10/26)... j/k, but I hope I can carve out a few days between her birthday and our annual Halloween party to do justice to the new tome.

Nice to meet you all, and I hope to come up with a few theories on my own, since most of my thoughts have already been well hashed and rehashed by this time.

Ciao.

It's a holdover from my IRC nick in college. My friend was feeling asexual, said she felt like a bowl, so all of us sitting in the computer lab next to each other (but only talking via IRC like the proper geeks that we were) promptly changed our nicks to something bowlish in order to properly mock her. Mine stuck.

Welcome to TL. Have fun, post often. Ignore the current...fire...going on between some of the members. It'll pass in time.

So tell us about yourself. Favorite book? Favorite character? Favorite moment of the book? Favorite Ajah? Favorite real-life band/musical genre? If ya wanna add anything else in, feel free. If you wanna add more personal stuff, like your name, etc, feel free as well.

Don't be scared by the eventual hi-jacking of this thread. Just post and try to jump in on the fun, nobody really knows what they're talking about in the newbie boards anyways, so don't fear feeling out of place, or on the outside of the in-jokes.

Also, I suggest that you suggest a shorter nick...otherwise I'm sure someone else will. Not that your name is too long, we just like nicknames here. I will answer to either Mato or Matoyak. (Pronunciation is "Muh-toe-yak") (the Muh is silent 'h', so it sounds like mu from the word mud.)
The short version Mato is pronounced M-a-toe (the 'a' pronounced like apple)

Yes, Mato - but how the heck would you shorten "Bowlwoman?" "Bowls?" "Owl?" Hmmm - I rather like "Owl."

I dub thee "Owl" -- until someone overrides me, anyway.

Welcome to our happy madhouse, Owl. If you spend any time looking through our existing threads, you'll find we are a very mixed bunch - with LOTS of padded (but still sharp) corners and the occasional snark lurking in the deep end. But, for the most part, we get along pretty well and enjoy arguing with each other.

I look forward to the answers to Mato's questions, and can't wait to see some new threads from a fresh angle.

I was thinking "Bwoman" almost like Bowman. But Owl works for me. How about we see if she likes it before we hoist it on 'er, eh?

Hi, welcome to TL. Yes we have some wacky theories that none of the other sites really talk about much but we talk about until we are sick of them.

I'm not sick of Lews Therin, but everyone else is I think.

Don't worry about that. If you mention them to us, then I'm sure we can unhash them in short order. We have quite effective unhashing algorithms here.

Hmm, your theories might not be so hashed as you think. I've noticed that there is little enough traffic between the major WoT forums that each site has a few ideas that the other sites don't talk about much.

*borrows shocks accent*
*peers through the plastic plant*
*whispers*
Oi, here we have the theorylander in her natural habitat, notice faint odors of smugness and beer.
When they get all riled up you can see their feathers getting all ruffled. Lets see if i can get them all mad.

*shouts*
Oi. LTT is neither a construct or a real voice, its plant by the creator! Goodkind is the best author ever! the iraq war was both good and nessesary! Healthcare is only for the elite and most wealthy! Dav is cool! The Dutch are evil! Greandal killed Rahvin! Olver is Gaidal cain!

*ignores everyone else and goes back to whispering*
Notice how they immediately try to counter with logic, if i were to counter this arguement with stubborness watch them attack my education, and then my dedication. oh this is facinating.

Welcome, Owl! I kinda like that nick, Tru.

Don't let the current in-fighting on the Non-WoT scare you off, please. Like a group of close-knit siblings, we squabble. (Or perhaps like a group of carrion crows over a carcass, I'm not sure.)

I'm Gilshalos. I'm called "Gil" for short. (Pronounced "Jill.")
