  1. I'm a fan of this theory and I think it fits after the whole OB perfectly.
  2. It was just a week though. But yes, he did have time to overcome his pain.
  3. It was a mistake, I managed to see it and change it before your reply I find it unlikely. Author of second letter from OB states he had the opportunity to become something more and refused. If he was a god before, he would already be something more.
  4. What the storms is with Kaladin/Jasnah ship? She's like 15 years older than him. He's a child to her. She also has a completely different morality and that's a huge thing in relationships. Stop it. Get help. It's not gonna happen.
  5. Not necessarily. Venli mentions that if the Fused saw Timbre they would immediately kill her. And she is just a normal Lightspren. It makes sense that the Fused will go to the great lengths to destroy something that will potentially give their enemy an edge.
  6. Like Ruin tricked people into thinking that the power of the Well must be released for greater good. I like that idea a lot. We know Cultivation is good at seeing the future and we have reasons to believe she is actually better at it than Odium - She is able to hide from him. It's easy for people to believe foreseeing is of Voidbringers, because Radiants don't get these powers. But if Odium actually has a weakness to future telling it would make much sense to give that ability to his pawns. Like Megan was Firefight to hide her weakness to fire.
  7. But since when a character has to be "special" to be relatable? :P I don't think her marvel is in her distinctiveness as the only well-known alethi heretic, but people can relate to her world view anyway. If you are an atheist you probably do to, even if you didn't think anything of her "uniqueness". There are probably people that relate to Jasnah because she's a black sheep, I for one, definitely was one because of this very reason in middle school, being the only one in my year not attending religion classes (yes, we have such thing in Poland). But it's not the main reason I like Jasnah, and I'm pretty sure most people have other reasons too. For me, the core of her personality is being a dedicated scholar and a stubborn one - Veristitalian. I also relate to her poor social skills ;P So yeah, what I meant to say is that it's not about being "special" but about having similar values as the reader. I mean, one of my favourite characters was Ym, every day, regular, normal guy (well, minus a spren). And I understand that some poeple might find her personality overrated, but come on, not because she's not special enough? Anyways. I find a lot of beloved main characters overrated because of their personality. Vin. Liked her in Mistborn 1, but absolutely hated her teenage heart dilemmas in Mistborn 2, could not look at her the same way ever again. Kelsier. He's just kind of a douche. Spook. Bland. Dull. Shallan. For someone so inteligent she makes a lot of bad choices. Or maybe I'm just a play-it-safe kind of person.
  8. Well, yeah, that too. But I REALLY would love Brandon to publish White Sand the novel and more importantly, to continue the saga as novels. I didn't really like the Graphic novel for many reasons, I cannot imagine trying to understand what in the name of Sand Lord is going on if I haven't read the prose before. The comic was so... flat. I don't know how to explain it. I would absolutely hate it if sequels would be only available in this form.
  9. I would like to "send the message" with my money, but I'm too weak for that. Im a simple woman, I see a thing by Brandon Sanderson, I buy it.
  10. I imagined almost all of them exactly how you portrayed them! Amazing!
  11. Oh my
  12. Yeah, I never believed Honor's perpendicularity was in the Highstorms and for the same reason you mentioned - Jasnah's chapter. But I didn't have any ideas for an alternative. So have my upvote because your theory is at least something I'm awaiting the discussion.
  13. In one of Dalinar's visions Nohadon asks what to do with the surgebinders and then says he doesn't think there can be anything done with them. We also know that Knights Radiant followed Nihadon's The Way of Kings. The vision was pre-WoK and surgebinders existed. Also, Syl says that spren figured out how to reproduce honorblades (and surges?) themselves and we know that KR were "founded" by one of the heralds. And Nalan promised to destroy each one of them if they didn't obey the rules. I always assumed KR was just the way to systematize and control Radiants. The was also a WoB that it is possible to have surgebinding powers not aligned with the 10 orders if some other spren figures out the Nahel bond.
  14. Thanks! I'm quite pleased with my english, although I feel I know too little fancy words. And misspelling happens to me all the time in my native polish too, so I try not to worry too much. The problem is I'm used to people finding it hilarious that my brain doesn't notice errors sometimes so I blush hot red every time it happens.
  15. I recommended my mum Legion, because she likes both detective stories and fantasy, and she was pissed at me, because I forgot that she has an obsession with unfinished plots, and Sandra's plot made her angry So I gave her TES to fix the first impression quickly and she liked it. I think other short stories, Shadows for Silence and First of the Sun, might work too, and Reckoners is also a certain hit. Didn't read The Rithmatist yet, but I bet it's great too? To my friends, I am afraid to recommend WoK, because not only is it huge, it's also not going to be finished for the next 20 years, that intimidates people. I tell them to read Warbreaker. I think it's a great example of Sanderson's worldbuiding, has an interesting magic system and great characters, also Siribron plot is so sweet. I've seen some voices that Warbreaker is not many people's favourite though. A lot of people love Mistborn, but I personally find it the weakest of cosmere. I myself started with it and it was a "meh" for me - enough to check author's other works, because I loved the worldbuiding, but not enough to jump in the hypetrain, because I didn't love the characters (liked some, but only had a connection with Elend, who was kinda secondary). A lot of people don't like Elantris and I loved it. I can see issues with it, yes, but it was a pleasant read. So, I don't think there is one way to do this, but I would aim at short stories the most. Except of Perfect state, because that one is odd. But it's a good way to get to know the author enough to trust him with Stormlight.
