I may or may not want to be a librarian, but I'm also really interested in biology and careers that deal with dead people. In my free time I enjoy watching anime (of course), playing practical jokes on people (only once has this lead to me being threatened with banishment from the dorms), lighting small things on fire, hiking, playing with stray cats, staring at taxidermy, and making stop-motion films. Also some other stuff. I'm currently obsessed with every single K-pop band. I like talking to strangers, so leave me a message if you'd like!

As for my tastes in anime, I'm particularly fond of bizarre arthouse series, really dark/gory comedies, magical girl, 70s shoujo, and guro.

Hey, Air. Glad you're enjoying FtNW! I basically marathoned it in two days - couldn't 'put it down' if that makes sense. Tell me what you think when you finish it. The Erin thing for me was the role of the heroine, the worldbuilding, and this emphasis on different races interacting on not too equal terms. There was also something about the tone, but that's harder to explain.

Oh! I and forgot!

I think you might also really appreciate this: http://www.amazon.com/Wraeththu-Storm-Constantine/dp/B0058M5K0K/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1369310125&sr=1-1&keywords=wraeththu

Wraetthu is a post-apocalyptic story of a world where men and women are replaced by one hermaphrodite race. Simple gender divides disappear; sex takes on a new interesting biological form; and the writing voice is quite pretty. Love it.

Marvellous recs. They're things I'd never have thought of, but seem like they'd intrigue me. Just wondering, how do I get hold of Leafie and Kono Danshi?

As for fantasy novels, yes, Jordan is worth it. I'd still say, despite all my rage at him, and him being singularly responsible for turning me off multi-volume fantasy tales, he does spin a superlative yarn. But if you DO want a kick-arse female lead, I say check out Daughter of the Empire and its two sequels (the Empire trilogy). It's a political epic about a woman conquering a system. It was co-written by Raymond Feist and Janny Wurts, and the reason the female character is good is probably because of Janny Wurts. Feist writes wonderful, memorable characters - who are all men. So it was nice to see his worldbuilding skills (it is set in one of the worlds he created prior to this series) but with a female input in the character development. 

Also, you saying they age Daenerys in the show suddenly makes me more interested in watching it. They must have literally corrected the only thing that really pissed me off about Martin. Hah. Not to mention all this talk really makes me want to go back to my original life goal of being a fantasy novellist. I mean, I still WANT to do it, but all these other life priorities getting in the way. From age 35, I'll sit down, take a writing course, and finally get to the goal I've always wanted. If it kills me.
