Hagi is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Hello

Hello. I am Hagi from Turkey. I've been reading WOT for 6 years now. I'm a mechanical engineer. My father is a historian. So i grew up listening legends, war stories of heroes. Naturally, I've become a fantasy novels addict. Besides reading, i'm in love with football/soccer.
My fav. character is Mat. I mean RJ era Mat. He's a bit awkward now. But i'm thankfull Brandon for his work. I hate Gawyn so much that i can't describe my feelings in English. Thank God he's a minor character.

So that's me folks. Selam and peace.

Taim is Demandred ;_;

Ooh, a Turk! Welcome to Theoryland. Mat-love and Gawyn-hate are pretty safe opinions to express in one's first post.

Selam : Hello, hi, salut

The word "selam" is of arabic origin and short form of "esselamınaleyküm rahmetullah ve berekatü". which means "may god's mercy and blessing be upon you".

Ah, I'd thought that it was a variation on shalom/salam, which do mean "peace". I should have remembered that language never ever makes sense, no matter what language it is.

Language does make sense Gonzo, humans don't.

Welcome Hagi!!

You may call me "Naz", though I will accept "your flaming greatness" if you insist!!

In a moment I shall be on fire and thus begins the roasting of your welcome feast!!

Welcome!

Cool, we've FINALLY someone from the Middle-East that can explain about stuff going on there. We tend to have some political threads active at any time on the Non board, sometimes about World events (don't mind the opinions. everyone's got one and some here are really vocal about expressing theirs.)

another Mat-fan, huh... *sigh* fine.

I do believe you're in the minority, yks.

Welcome to our little corner of the 'net, Hagi!

Welcome!

Gawyn hating? Get in line :P (though I don't get that annoyed by him actually, my ire is reserved for Elaida and her ilk)

Gawyn is almost as willfully stupid as Egwene (ToM being the deciding point) I'm torn between feeling extremely sorry for their child and shuddering at the thought of all that willful stupidity concentrated to one person.

Hmmm... maybe there will be a somewhat likeable little boy caught between the idiocy of his parents and younger siblings until the day he cries tears of joy when uncle Rand comes to take him away for his training in channeling while his aunts roll their eyes behind his parents backs.

Perhaps Gaidal Cain is going to be Egwene and Gawyn's child?
For all we know, Egwene might've managed to get herself pregnant with the TAR games already, so the timing could be right.

Ah it has been years since a noob thread was properly hijacked and run to the ground!

Some of our more recent members don't even know we used to have this fine tradition!

Oh where are the many cookies?!

Where is the suspiciously minty tee?!

Where is the kaf that might or might not have crimsonthorn mixed in?!

Look! Even the Entropy Sideline Club Couch is covered in dust!

Happy, Naz? We need a good derailing. It helps the noobs become accustomed to the crazy that is Theoryland.

I wouldn't call Gawyn a supporter of Elaida's at all. As far as he knew, he was simply helping prevent an unlawful coup (granted, the coup attempt he blocked was opposing an unlawful coup but he didn't know that).

Witness the fact that he helped Siuan and Leane escape, for example.

It's sort of a tradition. That way you have to put forth an effort to keep your noob thread relevant to you.
