  1. Past hour
  2. Good guess but nope.
  3. That's part of why I want it to be animation. That mindset can't change without examples to lead the change, and Mistborn could be the starting point for that.
  4. Ah, good old King of Nowhere fighting against the gay agenda! Give yourself an applause!
  5. well, if one says that an author should include minorities because otherwise his work is not inclusive, if one implies that an author is bad because he is not inserting something, then he's doing exactly that.
  6. it means that it must not be an obligation. one should not have a list of minorities to add like a checklist (black dude? check. single mother? check. asian? lgbt? check. Black woman single lgbt mother? damnation, i miss that one, i must put one in the story). that's not inclusion, that's politically correct gone mad. furthermore, i am a big fan of the "live and let live" principle. and according to that principle, no one has any right to tell an author that he must put something in the story just to show inclusion. making it an obligation to include lgbt themes - or. heck, any other topic - also goes against freedom of artistic expression. the emphasis is all on "would be nice if he did X" against "must do X". would be nice, certainly. but the moment we force people to conform their art to a canon, we are pushing it too far. now, regarding an author choosing whether to make a character lgbt when it's not a plot point, i assume it would go more or less like any other fluff descriptor that is not important to the plot. as in, i have no idea, but i trust that an author does. I mean, in mistborn commentary brandon said that initially vin was male, but worked better as female. why? I'm not sure. I don't know enough to tell why brandon felt that vin had to be female. but i trust that just as brandon figured it for some reason, so he can figure when he'd rather his character is gay.
  7. Edwin saw the bodies and wondered for a moment what would the neighbors think. There were pools of blood and a newly emptied house. Would anyone even notice? He sat tiredly on the floor, over a spot that hadn't been covered in blood or lost limbs. I need more training. He thought to himself. Incapable of doing much at the moment save for trying to convince himself he hadn't been as useless as it seemed.
  8. I agree but for different reasons I can't make my ideas of Adolin and Edgedancers overlap.
  9. Pits of Hathsin
  10. @Daneil/@Dawnbreaker, you might want to talk to the mods about that. If something happened to your previous account they might be amenable to you creating a second account as long as the first one is taken down. I think the issue you are facing here is one of post count. There are certain restrictions on new members until they reach a certain post count, it's to prevent spammers. If something more happened to your previous profile, like getting issued a Warning Point, go send a DM to a mod or create a topic in the 17th Shard Discussion forum where they handle these issues
  11. There is a huge shake up in the comic book world going on still because a writer was bold enough to have iceman come out as gay(for none comic fans iceman is one of the OG x-men who had there first comic in the 60s and is famous for flirting with every female character in marvel). However when I went back and read the older comics the thing I kept thinking was "this guy is totally gay."
  12. You have a good voice and are much better at dialogue than myself. I'm really curious about the Tree as well all in all pretty good. I assume that this will be worked on.
  13. It is different from 1-3 but still retains the overall PS ness of its older brothers. This looks rather like the Pro Controller for Switch. I like it but totally wasn’t expecting a completely different outline altogether. its doing away with the circle moulds and protruding trigger and analog moulds. Going flat block style.
  14. I envy your excitement. I pride myself on using a local bookstore so I have to wait a few months to place my order.
  15. Aligns with the Intent of a Shard, has military significance, pivotal in a Desolation level event but not Urithiru or Elantris... Kredik Shaw?
  16. Today
  17. Nnimm's eyes, which had been busy with the room at large again--no shortage of things to look at, listen to, or smell in this odd place--came to rest on the woman who approached and sat down at their table. "I am," they said. "New, that is." Their voice bore the characteristic deep, faintly crackly harmonic set of their kind, though it was on the smoky end of that spectrum. "Does everyone fall through..." They paused, searching for words, "...tears, rips in the world like threadbare spots in a fabric to get here, or is there someone I should find and let know something is wrong?" After a beat the corners of their mouth turned up slightly. "My apologies. I try not to make a habit of starting conversations with complicated questions right off, this has been a very strange day. I'm Nnimm." The consonants bore a humming quality, a little like the sound one might make to find the note a space best echoes back. "What can I call you?" @Silva

  19. Granted, but your cookie implodes upon digestion, and comes out as diarrhea that also happens to blow up (notice a trend?) I wish I could hear/know of the piano music EXPERIENCE wants to learn P.S. This is Daneil with a second account bc APPARENTLY I am a spammer.
  20. I mean, the PS4 controller is mighty different from the rest. The colored buttons are gone, but that's about it
  21. Notices you and whips a shotgun out from between my buttocks
  22. Granted. You had an angel. I wish for a cookie.
  23. Sadly , no again , my dear booknerd. 1). This place is an asynchronous oddity ( by standards of Earth history and inworld relativity ). 2). The purpose of this place aligns well with the intent of ( one of ) the resident Shard(s). 3). This place has major military significance in world. Ok new clue. 4). This place was instrumental in the execution of a successful plan to save a certain population from a desolation level event.
  24. Oooo. Just found this. What did y'all think about conference?
  25. It means they had two roles.
  26. Can't recall if it's said in book but there is certainly a WoB on the subject
