Hi everyone! I can't remember if I ever had an account on here, but I used to be a part of the original kitchen table back in the day. Other things pulled me away from pern fandom for a few years there, but I have a bit more time now, so I figured I'd swing by and say Hi!

Hello everyone!

My name is ThistleProse and I've been a fan of Anne's worlds for quite a long time now. I run a forum rp based on her Dragonriders of Pern since 2012, and I've found this website to be a great help when it comes to digging up information about Pern and the dragons that live there!

I'm currently reading the Mr. Mercedes series by Stephen King, and I'm really enjoying it so far!

For the rest of the month, and the past two years, I've been living in Canada, but I'm going home again come November. I'm both saddened and excited. Two years is a long time to be away!

Its nice to officially meet everyone!

Welcome Megs the Ent. Sorry it's a bit quiet at present. You are not obliged to make a stir; but you are welcome to do so.

Thanks P'Ter!

Sorry it took so long to get in here again. I just got the approved email yesterday.

I've read most of McCaffrey's work, but not Petaybee, Powers or past the first Acorna book.

I live in central Manitoba, Canada, but I've lived in southern Manitoba, SW Ontario, Arkansas and Louisiana

Hello, everyone! Newbie here, but I'm a longtime Anne fan.

I stumbled on the forum while doing some research for fanfic (none of which I have actually written yet) and decided to join.

Thank you, all!

Yes, vyon, I should get writing! I don't seem to make enough time for it lately. The problems of being dragonless and unable to simply hop to another place in time to write!

I'm retired and able to make my own time - but still don't seem to spend very much of it actually writing. Today's effort was all on our family's history website - about the building of the beer-bottle house on Norfolk Island in the 1960s.

My time is currently compiling a spreadsheet of everybody from University of Birmingham who was involved in WW1; currently around 1,000 folk.

Welcome to our community Jeslinth.

As for time management, I'm retired, which means I have less time to do whatever I want than I did when I was working. Wife sees to that.

I have at least 25 years before I can think about retirement, but I'm single with no kids, so I should have more spare time than I do! I help out with my extended family a lot, though. My grandma is recently widowed, and she lives nearby so I spend a lot of time with her.

Hello! I'm Seanni (not real name, but I'd like to be called that on this site), an Anne McCaffery fan. I started out with her Pern novels and I now have most of the Pern novels, the Freedom's Landing series, the Crystal Singer series, and the Acorna series at home. I really love to write and have many fanfictions (mostly Warrior Cats but one DoP) and a couple of books (all unpublished for now). I decided to join this site mostly to discuss Pern and insert my two cents.

I don't know why, but it seems to be raining second-hand Anne McCaffrey books in Wellington right now. I was in two bookstores that had a whole shelf of them - so I put a hardback copy of "The White Dragon" on layby.
