  1. I kind of think it was Odium and Cultivation. Likely Honour and Odium were wounded vessels, and Cultivation decided to sow a new crop so the new vessels could better protect Roshar. Jury is out if Cultivation herself will be replaced, but Lift sure is a neat candidate for it
  2. Tanavast was human. Windle says that Cultivation lost interest in humans now that he (Tanavast) is dead. They also often say humans are a son of Honour etc. Tanavast was human and a dragon fell in love with him somehow.
  3. I really hope you do one more where you say what you think will happen in book 5!
  4. I wonder if El is related to the term NahEL bond.
  5. Nalthis (Warbreaker) has a Customs Agency at their perpendicularity. EDIT: I added the WOB @More Cynical Than Funny
  6. The thing is, we have seen other instances of things glowing to people as well. For example Dalinar sees glowing when he hears Jasnah reading the Way of Kings at Gavilar's funeral. This is a phenomena we have seen happen with other main characters, so I doubt this is just Shallan being crazy. Shallan could have psychosomatic hallucinations, but considering the weirdness of the Davar family I think we really should be open to more. Shallan says her mother's soul is in there, and that is NOT what a deadeyespren or a shardblade are.
  7. I mean, the Cryptics knew she had done it and the Cryptics decided to try again. Surely they must have had a good reason. As Tien was also bonding one, I guess the Spren trust children more (or think they can mold them similar to why Windle was told to bond Lift).
  8. My theory does mean there must be something else going on as well, I know. But we know there is another secret and we know the family is .... strange somehow. Maybe an Unmade is doing something there too? But the Shallan Chanarach thing is very stark.
  9. 4. Shallan could see it. There is also some evidence that Lin could see it, as he is also caught staring up towards the room a couple times (for example, when Shallan's brother gets taken away and Shallan goes to Lin to beg for the money). 7. The unmade could be related to the Herald as well, but I see your point.
  10. I am increasingly fond of the theory that Shallan is the daughter of Chanarach. 1) Heralds can procreate somehow. 2) Shallan is the spitting image of Chanarach 3) Shallan's mother was involved in secret societies (much like many heralds seem to be). For a house so rural, people sure were willing to lend them soulcasters and other resources. 4) Shallan's mother's soul is said to "glow" inside that box. We all assumed that was pattern/testament, but does that make ANY sense? Maybe when a Herald dies there is a intermediate step, ad somehow Lin put her soul in a box and trapped it? Something like that. 5) Shallan was chosen TWICE. Maybe the spren wanted to bond someone familiar, and they did know Chanarash. Heck, maybe even Chanarash asked (perhaps to see if Ishar was right). Why Chanarach tried to kill her daughter is an unknown, but maybe Ihhar told her too? Who knows with a Herald. 6) Nale never comes for Shallan. Maybe Lightweaving is too "quiet", but maybe Chanarach intervened in some way. 7) The evil in the Devar home is said to be supernatural; Chanarach's divine attributes are Obedient and Brave. The corruption of Lin Davar could be said to be a corruption of those exact elements. Maybe Chararach's curse was spread to Lin somehow? Childhood Shallan herself is cowardly and disobedient afterall... 8) Shallan's disorder could be somehow related to her parentage. 9) Radiant could be the secret that Shallan is of Radiant/Herald blood 10) Messanger-Hoid was VERY surprised to see Shallan, and he takes special care of her. Maybe he recognizes Shallan for what she was (the daughter of a Herland he knew). We used to assume he saw Pattern/Testament, but Testament would have been a deadeye. Perhaps Wit saw the spren hovering around Shallan, but we have no proof of that (and the rebonding happened much later than the feast), I know there is a WOB that Shallan's parents are exactly who we think they are, but this does not change the parentage of Shallan. It just means that her mother was more than we thought (not a different person). So these elements together have me thinking Shallan is Chanarach's daughter. I am even willing to believe that Shallan IS Chanarash, but I realize that is a much harder pill to swallow (but a much MUCH sweeter lie)

  12. I was wondering if the new character EL was the namesake of the Nah EL bond.
  13. Remember that people like Khaladin and Shallan were the original tethers. Once those had been connected, other spren of those orders had a much easier time making the transition to the physical realm and therefor could be more direct about bonding people near the original tethers.
  14. Ive been wondering if what Venli did was entirely something a Stoneward can do. I think more likely she is accidentally hacking into Dawnsinger powers by having the Envoy-Form communication powers plus the powers of a Stoneward.
  15. My tinfoil theory is that Venli and a Bondsmith unshatter the plains. "Unite Them" meant the shattered plains themselves.
