About Hoids Imaginary Friend

  1. The Heralds didn't abandon Taln, Taln abandoned the Heralds. Taln doesnt pay taxes. Taln doesn't need toilet paper, he's got Roshar. Taln once bonded all the Spren. Odium really really wants to be friends with Taln. Everything he's done since he became a Shard was to impress Taln. Taln isn't impressed.. All of Hoids stories are about Taln. Ash isn't in love with Taln. She's in love with the idea of Taln. Taln once farted and created Investiture. Taln can slam a revolving door.! Brandon Sanderson is a figment of Taln's imagination. WOT for fun! !~ HIF ~!
  2. Have we had confirmation the honorblades are broken and no longer capable of drawing directly from honors investiture? I know Honor was shattered but his investitute wasnt destroyed.. A couple of possibilities with this line of thought: 1) you need to be bonded to the honorblade before you can access investiture directly 2) only the Heralds are capable of using the Honorblades in this way 3) its all about perception - we know that someone holding an Honorblade without knowing what it is is incapable of accessing the surges they grant. What if accessing investiture like the Heralds used to is as simple as knowing you can do it? This reminds me of the scene in Edgedancer at the when Nale breaksdown and acknowledges the Voidbringers return. The whole fight between Nale and Lift I cant remembet him gkowing much, but right at the end - bam - he flows like the sun and flies off.. !~ HIF ~!
  3. Oathbringer / mistborn era 2 spoilers guys. So by the end of OB we see Hoid bond a Cryptic, which was quite an exciting event, add to this we know MB era 2 is between SA 5 & 6. So its got me thinking.. (my answers in bold) 1) Is Hoid still Bonded? yes 2) Has Hoid figured out how to take a spren off world? yes 3) Can anyone remember if this may have been suggestive in the texts? cant memba I can only remember two scenes; SoS - carriage driver when Wax talks to Harmony BoM - homeless person who talks to Wax out the front of "that" party where Hoid gives Wax the copper mind medalion. Anyway, thought this eas interesting and wanted to share. Thoughts guys? Anything else we can think of here..? !~ HIF ~!
  4. This thread has reminded me of something ive been sitting on regarding the Shin and Odium. Its slightly tangential to this thread but I think it fits.. Ive been hesitant to talk about this as I think I may be misreading. I want to point out the interaction stated above between The Shin merchant and.. Rysn and co! I was thinking about this scene and I get the impression that The Shin appear to be kind and considerate people and it seems they lack a certain... Passion. Im also looking at Szeths Povs in OB and he seems to have this same trait - dont get me wrong he's still a bit cracked, but not as much as the previous books and as with my postulation above, this kinda "sane" Szeth lacks that Passion we've been hearing all about. Im inclined to agree that the Shin definitely know more than theyre sharing and they have something going on. Considering they know more of Odium then most cultures on Roshar, it maybe they have been resisting him all this time.. Or..!! Are The Shin already taken by the Void and this apparent passionlessnes is them waiting for their god to return their.. Passion! Now I dont know what to think.. !~ HIF ~!
  5. Just fleshing this one out. Im not very realmatic and I think this pushes the boundaries of what we know so I thought you guys could help (expand, denounce, enjoy, etc). To start with I want to point out the importance of perception in the Cosmere, especially where investiture is invloved. And also consider Odium has already convinced at least one civilization he is Passion - ok, talking about the Fuzed and ancient singers and I known he didnt get all of them, but they are an invested people so maybe this "hack" works better with them.. Also is this the only culture hes integrated with as "Passion" i wonder? Now the big Q: what if Odium is using "Passion" to gain "access" to more investiture? Now im not saying that there's no passion in hatred, but I do want to point out Passion isnt an emotion dedicated to hate alone - especially when looking at other Shards intents. Have a look at the shards Odium has already broken and consider the potential "passion" involved with their intent. Hmmm, i wonder if a Vessaless shard is easier to "access"..? Now back to the question, im not trying to suggest Odium is doing this for more power as it has been stated a few times he does not want anothers intent to influence him. Im thinking more abstractly regarding what this "access" intales. For example if someone invokes passion it gives the big O a window to view them, and knowledge for a General in wartime is quite important. Thats just an example, what do we think? !~ HIF ~!
  6. @LtGrimes618 Sorry for the tardy reply. Honestly I feel I'm a bit biased regarding Mr Weeks: Lightbringer. I think its great, love it.. I would more say the 1st half is slower and I dont think any of it was a chore - 5th book which is the "last" book of the series is scheduled for late 2019 and Mr Weeks is fairly regular in releasing every 2 years so at the least its going to be finished soon. Though in saying that it was supposed to be a trilogy and than suddenly its 4 books and than the author is apologising that it just wont fit.. so, lets say tentative last book. But as I said previously, love the magic system and may be interesting for Sanderfans due to the magic revolving around colors. !~ HIF ~!
  7. Ever had one of those thoughts that made you think I am the only person in the whole world who could have thought this, and disregarding everything else - this makes me special (in an endearing way I'm sure) So, Theory Magic Time.. (TMT) Is Preservation's / Leras's plan concluded? To expand: was Fuzz's "brilliant" plan only to deal with Ruin / Ati and create Harmony or is his "plan" still happening and potentially have greater Cosmere implications than has been insinuated.? I know I know, its heavily implied that this master plan was to deal with events in Mistborn Era 1, but!! It is Mr Sanderson.. Anyone else feel a curve ball here? Guys, I'm afraid i shall need some input here as I've only got my swelled head to put me in his place.. !~ HIF ~!
  8. Ahhh, the only good thing about finishing all of Brandons published work is being reminded that theres more cool stuff out there.. Im currently (finally) finishing off: The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever. Its a bit of a hard read to get into but I totally recomend it! P.s. MA15+ Violence and emotional trauma.. ***** A few suggestions for you guys in no particular order of awesomeness: The Demon Cycle: its finally completed and it was brilliant! Imagine a world where demons rise from the ground when the sun goes down and reek havok, and we have no weapons to even hurt them only defensive wards to hide behind. P.s. its a but R rated in regards to violence, curses and nake'ness. The Lightbringer Series: One of my favorite magic systems, amazing story! If you want to see how someone else made a magic system of Colors, have a go - 1 book left to be released, tentative next year. P.s. R rated - violence, curses and nake'ness. The Lies of Loch Lamora: Imagine Oceans 11 meets Fantasy as Loch Lamora is unleashed on this poor world. This protagonist you kind of want have a beer with, be friends and slap him silly at the same time- not completed. P.s. MA15+ violence and curses The Unhewn Thrown: The emporers children who are descendants of the god of light with their glowing yellow eyes living in a time of tormoil, their father dies, the immortal ancestors of the human race are after their extinction and the god of pain walks the earth teaching its trueth - completed. P.s. MA15+ violence and curses. The Tide lords: Immortals who can manipulate the tide to sometimes cataclismic degrees, havent been seen in thousands of years and are now an unbelievable legend have "returned" - completed. MA Violence and nake'ness. ***** I could go on, theres heaps of good work out there. I could tell you how amazing The Wheel of Time is or reinforce the poetic drama of Rothfuss's Kingskiller Chronicals meantioned above. But I think ive stretched the limitations of this thread already.. Oh!! In regards to what you could reread of Sandersans, theyre all good, you cant go wrong here !~ HIF ~!
  9. @Jeffo No, wasnt talking about what he did with the Lerasium bead aaaaannndd... I dont think Id use this to say why he didnt use the bead as Hoids "bump of trouble" doesnt " tell" him what he needs to do only where he needs to be.. As above Mr S is being very coy about what Hoid has done with this bead, he seams to be enjoying the mystery of this as much as us. Im inclined to think Hoid has used it in a way we have yet to see allomantic metals being used and we probably wont find out until the last Mistborn book (which in my head Is titled: "Mistborn: Cosmeres End") !~ HIF ~!
  10. Hmmmm. I dont think it is accurate to say Hoid is knowingly trying to get access to all the magic systems. Now for my argument im going to use some OB spoilerage. We dont really know much about this form of magic he uses to know where he needs to be, im only guessing it is to further his "goals" and this line of thought could potentially be used in regards to the other magics he has aquired - e.g. hes acquisition of the lerasiem bead. !~ HIF ~!
  11. @RShara you're right, thanks for the humbling. I reread the purelake scene and I was quite wrong. The good brother "God" they worshipped was never indicated to be the stars as I previously suggested and the jealous brother god was not even suggested to be the sun. I badly missinterpreted this and inverted it my mind. The "good" god is mentioned mainly in his thoughts, and the part that got me was at the start of the scene where he thought about the sun and how hot it was and than mentioned the good god had provided a horrible day (which I obviously thought as the jealous brother), but on reread it could easily read; "gods what a horrible day" and not "the sun god gave me a horrible day". So no, I was very wrong in the above post. Though I still believe there is correlations to these deities and Autonomy. Cheers @Wandering Investor for the support . To add to my propaganda on this subject... How heavily is Autonomy's relationship to water? White Sands? Patji? Trell... ahhhhhheehhhhhh..? Hmmmm, I cant back this up regarding water. But The Purelake!!! Eh.. eh.. Food for thought !~ HIF ~!
  12. Though this probably deserves its own thred or has even already been discussed but the idea spawned from reading this thread so Ill land it here for now as you guys helped me produce my very reasonable lines of thought for this.. Doesnt the old Scadrian Trell Religion sound very simmilar to the Rosharian Purelake religeon? Cant remember it 100% but its something like they worship the many eyed god (stars) but they pretend to worship the many eyed gods jealous brother with his one giant eye (sun).. Autonomy on Roshar maybe? Purelake is kinda isolated (isnt it) hence autonomy.. Im rarely right with these things (damnation you Brandon your brilliant man). Anyway, im prepared to be humbled !~ HIF ~!
  13. @Vortaan well if you read the whole extract in question again it seems highly suggestive that Syl is talking about the Spirit Realm. What if nice little Tiens Soul was demanding? I acklowledge your argument but I still consider Tian a viable canditate for "The Voice". I hope Mr S answers this one day.. !~ HIF ~!
  14. Hi guys! I just remembered this amazingly lame joke Ive always liked and I think I've found its home where it will finally be appreciated for what it is!! Ready!! what's brown and Sticky? Carefull guys.. knowing this answer changes everything!!! Your welcome !~ HIF ~!
  15. ** nods vigorously whilst sucking on his fingers ** Mmhhmmm! Mmmhmmm! Its called SanderSmack! it gives you access to fortune for a lil bit.. Ok ok, it doesnt really.. but have some you'll see what I mean. First times free!! ** sigh ** Alright you've got me. Its really just suger.. powdered suger.. Mormon powdered suger. Your supposed to rub it under your arms. Dont ask me why I didnt make the rules! Those Mormons.. they know things man. Just look at Brandon.. he knows things.. and I need to know these things! Mr Brandon.. pls sir, can I have some more? Like, I know you have these flashes of brilliant inspiration and you need to bench things to sort out whats going on in that fantastic mind of yours and no one is arguing about your productivity but.. if you dont mind to much Id really appreciate The Lost Metal.. any day now.. If it helps I could throw a Tantrum! ** sigh ** Ok Ill be good I guess, I can wait. Ill just.. finish off Thomas Covenant. !~ HIF ~!
