  1. Dang I searched for a WOB but didn’t find it! Thanks for that. I guess my question has been answered. I have read Aether of Night, although it’s been awhile so there may be a detail I’m missing...
  2. I’ve already submitted this to the list of questions to ask Brandon, but I thought I’d let the community pick this apart. Can/have Shards had children after ascending to become Shards? I believe that they can have children because they can manifest themselves in the Physical Realm and interact with it. As far as whether they have had children I have no specific people in mind but I wouldn’t be surprised if we learned about a couple. What are your thoughts?
  3. Have any of the Shards, after becoming Shards, manifested physically and had children?
  4. I’m sorry, but for some reason your post made me think of... ... which cracked me up! Seriously though, you are so right to point out the spren. Syl is fantastic and fun to read, but so far my favorite might be Pattern. I mean, I’m sure we will learn more, but all the Spren just keep telling people how dangerous and scary the Cryptics are and Pattern is just like “dividing by zero is inappropriate!”
  5. That’s fair, you do have to kind of fill in the blanks with Lopen since he has much less screen time and POV dedicated to him. It’s definitely less obvious with him that he has a deeper side than it is with Wayne or Lift.
  6. But... but... the end of Oathbringer! He’s hanging around a medical tent just to try to visit and cheer up those who are injured! All his jokes are so he can try to help people get through terrible times! I mean, I know this is your opinion and everything, but I think there is more to his character than just jokes.
  7. “...most invested in.” Pun intended? Oh gosh I totally forgot about Elhokar. He holds the place in my heart of having one of the best drastic character changes in all of literature. He went from one of the most frustrating and annoying people to the most sincere and easy-to-root for underdog in the books. Which is why Brandon completely ripped my heart out with the Kholinar arc in Oathbringer :’(
  8. (Inspired by the Least Favorite Character thread) Which Stormlight characters are your favorite? It could be because of their story arcs, quotes, intriguing mysteries, whatever. But I’m curious to know who is your favorite and the reason they are. While I love all the main characters (yes that includes Shallan) I’m gonna stick to some less prominent ones to make it interesting. I’ll throw out Skar as one of my favorites. For one thing, he’s one of the most skilled in bridge 4. Also, he’s a teacher and his short arc in Oathbringer is one of my favorite chapters. Alright there’s one of mine, fire away!
  9. I think you are totally right. Bridge 4 members are definitely very similar in their transformations. But like you said, they have POV chapters that take us into their heads and help us understand the shift. It would be nice to have this with Vhatha and Gaz (although for whatever reason I really like Vhatha’s character)
  10. Totally agree, I also love Wayne. One thing Brandon does so well is that each of these characters is much deeper than they appear. But I digress, since I should be talking about characters I don’t like. For the sake of conversation I’ll add Gaz as a character I’m not super fond of. The reason being how his transition from an antagonistic bridge commander to potential squire of Shallan is written. My reasoning is complicated, so here me out. I don’t hate the idea that he can change, the series is all about that so it’s fine. My problem is not that he changes in motivation, actions, morals, whatever. My issue is that the whole thing seems so... unnatural. Random with no foreshadowing. And it’s like he’s an entirely different person and personality when we meet him in WOR. So much so that I kinda suspected for a bit that he was a Kandra (I think I found some things that make me doubt that but it’s been awhile so I don’t remember). So yeah, his character kinda threw me off (especially in WOR).
  11. I do want to add (after not commenting on this thread for months) that I absolutely LOVE Lift and Lopen. I know that isn’t the most popular opinion, but I really think they are hilarious and intriguing characters. While both of them spend a lot of time acting like complete dorks, they really have some of the kindest and most touching actions in the books. I love the scene where Lopen tries (in his own silly way) to comfort an injured man. And the fact that Lift went and HUGGED Nale after he had tried to kill her and had killed countless others is just incredible. Also her back story is just so dang intriguing that I always want to know more. Although they don’t always show it, they are some of the most noble characters in the series.
  12. Must be very painful to walk on broken pieces of shardplate then
  13. @Chaos @Overlord Jebus @WeiryWriter Here's a Shardcast inspired joke for you guys. "Where's the one place you can always get WiFi in the Cosmere? The Spiritual Realm. Everything is connected in the Spiritual Realm."
  14. Was anyone else like screaming “Demoux!!” at the screen after like the second clue on “Whose that Cosmere Character”?
  15. Proof: Cultivation has Ascended. "To Be Ascended" is just a less fancy way of saying "To Be Lifted". Therefor Lift must be a part of Cultivation, but clearly not the vessel since she chose the less fancy title of "Lift" instead of "Ascend". Theory: The first Rosharan to reach space will be The Lopen.
