The Splintercast Reads Bands of Mourning, Episode 9: Chapters 22-24


Cosmere is still number one in my heart, okay? I’ll never leave the cosmere behind. I been in this for six years. We ain’t leavin’ the trenches now!

Finally, things start to come together for me theory-wise. I talk myself back into my theory of Telsin’s alignment, which is probably a good thing. However, I also start to “figure out” my theory about who the Sovereign is, and I’m still mad that that theory was wrong because it made so much sense, listen.

I will say, for everyone who does know who the Sovereign is, (including me, the present Feather, who is writing this) going back and listening to me trying to figure it out is pretty amusing. In a way that makes me want to punch the real Sovereign in the face because, Harmony’s Forearms, I want to punch him so much.

There’s also a ridiculous amount of Dragon Age talk, but hey, that’s all I was doing all day before I started reading, gimme a break. I’d say that I was due for a Dragon Age/Cosmere crossover, but actually… I already wrote one. Ha. Enjoy!

I believe Marasi spoke "ancient Terris", in the graveyard.  And did so to say that she "didn't speak skaa."  So there's two languages from the Final Empire right there.  (Also there's Spook's cant, but that only rose to prominence after the Catacendre)

 

RE: tapping Connection in Elantris: What do you want to bet that this was Hoid's experiment in the 10th anniversary edition of Elantris?  Which failed, IIRC, so there's more to it than just filling something with blank Connection, and then tapping it in a specific place on Sel.  

 

Re: Amount of heat in metalminds:  If there was anything in the Cosmere that could be described by the phrase "size matters not", it would be metalminds.

"I feel like we've got at least one good twist coming for us."

 

Hehe. Yeah you could say that.

Um...I might be wrong about this, but you said, "Whenever people try to stop crime before it happens, innocent people get hurt." That is a quote from Avengers: Age of Ultron. Captain America says that to Iron Man. Was that intentional?

You know, I don't think I was specifically remembering that it was from the Avengers, but I am a pretty big Avengers fan, so that's probably where I got it. I agree with the concept though, quite wholeheartedly!
