  1. “You have to learn when to care, son,” Lirin said softly. “And when to let go. You’ll see. I had similar problems when I was younger. You’ll grow calluses.” 'And this is a good thing? Kal thought, another tear trickling down his cheek. You have to learn when to care … and when to let go. …' WoK ch 20 'You have to learn when to care. … As if he could choose. Banish it, like snuffing a lantern. Kaladin bowed beneath the weight. I should have saved him, I should have saved him, I should have saved him.' ... 'You were wrong, Father, he thought. You said I’d learn to deal with the deaths. And yet here I am. Years later. Same problem.' WoK ch 57 My personal theory is that it'll be along the lines of "I'll protect those I can, and abandon those I cannot."
  2. Time for another trip down the rabbit hole! EDIT: Seriously though. Would it could as a dead body or not, since they're still at least partially sentient? How would the Investiture play a part? Would the "aged meat" be tasty, or would the Ichor-Alcohol make it unappetizing? I have so many questions now.
  3. Both are awesome ideas. Though I've already bought fabric. Is there a drawing somewhere of what the Tears of Edgli look like?
  4. So I'm in the process of trying to make my own Cosmere blanket, based on this amazing one here, and I realized that Nalthis was left out of Arcanum Unbounded, as it doesn't have a short story. This means it doesn't have a fancy symbol, and won't have representation in the blanket. What's a girl to do? So far, my best idea is to tie multicolored strips of cloth in with the ties, but I'm feeling rather bummed that Nalthis wasn't included. Any ideas?
  5. Ah. So not all of the Shards were originally even human. That's interesting...
  6. Sho Del? I'm guessing that's from an unpublished work... I'm not familiar with those, sadly. Haven't been able to find them.
  7. I made the mistake of reading it right before Thanksgiving lunch/dinner... So my eyes were all red and puffy.
  8. Third book meaning Nyphron Rising, or Heir of Novron? XD (Curse those republications for screwing with book numbers) Both are acceptable answers. Nyphron Rising is probably the slowest of the Revelations books, and Heir of Novron (which contains Wintertide and Percepliquis) is the most painful due to character deaths, kinda like Hero of Ages was. To be fair, I slammed Oathbringer down on the table and took a 7 hour cry break after reading the end of part 3...
  9. I just finished Throne of Glass yesterday and can honestly say I hated it, sorry. ^^' Celaena was such a brat and the rest of the characters weren't any better. There was an almost literal Deus Ex Machina at the end, and Maas kept referencing things and characters like they were supposed to make sense without giving any sort of background or explanation as to why. I kept expecting a BadA assassin like Vin and got stuck with Charlotte La Bouff from Princess and the Frog instead. I finished Oathbringer in a week. It took me four months to slog my way through Throne of Glass. It's definitely not one I'd recommend... Anyway! Some of my top books are: *Kingkiller Chronicles: Pat Rothfuss *Riyria Revelations and Riyria Chronicles: Michael J. Sullivan Study series (Poison Study, Magic Study, Fire Study): Maria V. Snyder Sword of Truth series: Terry Goodkind (YA) The Shattered Realms series: Cinda Williams Chima (YA) Tortall books: Song of the Lioness Quartet, The Immortals Quartet, Protector of the Small Quartet, etc - Tamora Pierce (YA) The Great Tree of Avalon trilogy: T.A. Barron Those are some of my favorite series that I've reread several times each. (*All-time favs next to Cosmere books!)
  10. My two favorite series. Need I say more? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Riyria Revelations and Mistborn. Wish I could add a SA reference in there somewhere, but then it would be getting long... I also go by BrinnaSilvio on some other websites, and she's an OC from my (unfinished) novel.
  11. Here's mine! Q: Has Hoid ever had a love interest? A: Yes! Several! Now I'm curious as to whether they'll all show up in DragonSteel, or if there have been any that are more recent...
  12. Nobody else loves The Blackthorn?! That one was definitely my favorite. Along with Bridge Four, You're In My Spot, Assassin In White, King's Wit, Wandersail, Hearthstone, Stormblessed, and Sylphrena. Honorable mention: Impossible by Two Steps From Hell Yeah it's not part of the album, or by the same artist, but I listened to it on repeat for hours while reading the climax of Oathbringer, because it fits so well!
  13. I thought about using sticky notes, but I have a feeling I'd have so many the books wouldn't be able to close! XD Plus I was worried about them falling out. I've also considered keeping a Cosmere notebook to write ideas in, but I've no idea how to organize it.
  14. I don't highlight my books. I love keeping them pristine and new looking, but I'm thinking of getting spare copies to mark up when I make Connections, develop theories, or see a Worldhopper! Do you highlight/make notes in your Cosmere books? How do you go about it? Do you color code things or write notes? Like red for Ruin, red and gold for Odium, green for Cultivation, white for Preservation, etc? Looking for ideas and advice!
