I saw you recommend Wheel of Time to Mirai, and that just makes me so happy. whee I haven't read the books myself (the section his wife was editor of seems kinda off-putting...) but I know the story fairly well. My siblings and father (all huge fans) /love/ talking about it.
Mainly my sister, a crazed Mat fangirl...she's turning me into one as well.
And I'm rambling. Again. Sorry~
(Just so excited to see someone else who knew them.)
