  1. Thank you so much! It’s still hard for me to grasp the fact that we actually pulled off playing the Rite of Sprint like that after 2 1/2 days of rehearsal. I’m super proud of that performance, and I’ll remember it for the rest of my life. (The glorification and dance sections are totally all Ruin)
  2. I know I can, it’s just gonna be so long before I can ever get there, and I need all the motivation I can get. The recording of our performance will give me most of that motivation.
  3. Thank you! I’ve listened to our performance five times since Saturday night. I can’t wait until I get the professional recording in a week or so.
  4. Thank you! There’s actually a video from one of our rehearsals that’s really cool. For context, our conductor, Dr. Noe, started teaching us the Dance section, the last five-ish minutes of the piece, basically first because it was the hardest part. Then, once we had it down pretty well, he made a system so that any time a rehearsal started or we got back from a break, when he got on the podium we would start and runthrough the Dance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFNKvPmW4dE
  5. So, my audition for All-State was this past Wednesday. I got second chair for bass clarinet, which meant I got to perform in the Symphony Orchestra, the top ensemble. Thursday through Saturday were the best three days of my entire life. If that’s what it’s like to be a professional musician, then I know for a fact I want to do that for the rest of my life. Plus, I got to play Rite of Spring!!!!! Here’s the video, if you want to hear our performance!
  6. Well yeah, if they don’t mind becoming mindless and unable to stop themselves from killing people. I just don’t understand how anyone would want to become a shade, unless there are different types of shades that we are unaware of.
  7. @Overlord Jebus Wow, that was certainly quite a ride. Everything was just so...horrible and amazing and awesome. I'm dying to read some of your original stuff at this point now!
  8. Personally, I think that what Kaladin with the highstorm was just a manifestation of his Adhesion surge, not using the windspren to break the storm. We've never seen Kaladin manipulate the windspren before, and I don't see how it should even be possible for a Radiant to use their surges to control spren in any way. What I think is more likely is that the windspren were already in the highstorm at the time, and they just became curious at what Kaladin was doing and kind of surged around him.
  9. Yeah, that’s completely fair. Venli completely won me over during OB, though I could see why others might be hesitant to read her story in the next book. I’ll touch more on this later in response to part 4, but just because Venli will be the focus doesn’t mean that your favorite characters won’t get heir moment to shine (think Kaladin in WoR or Shallan in OB). I definitely don’t think that Venli was a last-minute swap. The two are so different from each other that their stories simply would not have worked if Eshonai had survived instead of Venli. I’ve talked extensively about this in other threads, but I think we’ll just have to agree to disagree (I think we might’ve already had this debate). I feel like a huge part of Venli’s arc in the next book will probably be building up an anti-Odium resistance among the Singers. That will probably give us plenty of characters for Venli to react off of. Plus, I’m sure it’ll all culminate at some point with Venli meeting up with the rest of the gang as well, presumably in the epic finale. I’m sure Khen and some of the other Singers that survived the Battle of Kholinar will also be involved with Venli’s arc as well. Anyway, to each their own. You can not like Venli as a character, and I can like her as a character. @Jace21 already said a lot of this, but I feel like I should make my comments as well.
  10. I completely forgot that Nazh talked about rituals for becoming a shade. That makes no sense, why would you ever want to become a shade? There must be something else going on with that, but we probably won’t find out for a couple decades.
  11. You’re welcome!
  12. I’m just curious, why are you hesitant about the next book focusing on the Singers? (the Listeners are just a group of Singers, like Americans are just a type of humans, by the way) Personally, I’m super excited for the increased focus on the Singers. I don’t really have time to go into a lot of why I’m excited right now, but I’ll gladly type it out later if you want me to.
  13. @Greywatch Thank you so much!
  14. Would someone care to copy and paste the update on here? I don’t have access to reddit because my parents have restricted it, so I can’t see the post.
  15. @Concept Yeah, you’re definitely reading too much into that. You can’t expose a tooth that isn’t there.
