  1. Due to my personal rules to only go into allies with appropriate lighting and never take baked goods from people on the internet, I am not entirely positive about this, but I had always been under the impression that the DA cookie spikes steal attributes, and are harvested later, meaning that you neither get superpowers nor do you get a long-term connection to harmony. But then again, what do I know? [plug/]Probably 80% of my posts are parodies (listed in my sig) [/plug], and the rest are almost all responses to General Discussion forum games and (usually poorly executed) snark.
  2. The Seduction Vector will definitely be a Malcolm Gladwell book about weird phenomena related to dating. Also, my headcanon is that Lin Davar always had anger issues and an explosive temper, but under normal circumstances that just would have made him a kind of irritable person prone to explosions when provoked. Certainly not a good or peaceful person, but also not what he was post-Shallan's-matricide. However, after the cover-up he was basically being bombarded on all sides by hatred and accusation, while at the same time harboring a terrible secret that was eating him up and probably terrified that he might provoke Shallan to kill him too (which turned out to be a valid fear). This brought out the worst in him, which was already worse than most other people's worsts, 24/7, which further validated the hatred and accusation, which in turn exacerbated his misanthropy, etc.

  4. They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.-Terry Pratchett I got quite annoyed after the Haiti earthquake. A baby was taken from the wreckage and people said it was a miracle. It would have been a miracle had God stopped the earthquake. More wonderful was that a load of evolved monkeys got together to save the life of a child that wasn't theirs.-Terry Pratchett
  5. There is a secondary tradition during Ookla season to change profile pics so that they match someone else's, in order to heighten the confusion. Hence the Slowbrī (the proper plural form of Slowbro).
  6. @Bridge_Four, welcome to the 17th Shard. One way that people often delete a post if they double post is to report themselves for the reason of an accidental double-post. A mod will remove the post, and you won't be penalized for it in any way. Also DO NOT EAT ANY COOKIES, they contain spikes and are made to steal part of your soul. PS: It is currently Ookla Season, so be warned that there are a large number of different people with Ookla in their name, and they often even have matching profile pics to heighten the confusion.
  7. My question was double elimination (a curling team has 4 players) what is your other choice?
  8. Eliminated Rock and Song, because then I get to have Thanksgiving stew! Which two couples would together form the best curling team?
  9. @Ookla the ingenious , what is the question? Also, whatever happened to that marriage thing? Did I miss it?
  10. Watch Serenity, it will help ease the pain (slightly). But I feel your pain. It was perfect. Why did you have to kill Joss Whedon's Space Cowboys, Fox? WHY!?!?
  11. I like the parody (I've never seen (or is it read?) RWBY). Also, I wanted an excuse to write "For the sake of all that we Hoid dear in the Cosmere..."
  12. I think that Nale was granted his superlegal jurisdictions by kings when he was a Herald or over the last four and a half millenia, and then just keeps his documents really well preserved.
  13. I know, right? Also, does anyone else think that Hurl's name (Hudiya) sounds Hebrew?
  14. For the sake of all that we Hoid sacred in the Cosmere If you feel like it, put this into the Cosmere, the Musical! thread (see my sig). Also: Tien opened his hands to reveal a Black Sphere, weathered on all sides, but with a jagged break on the bottom. Kal picked it up, looking it over. He couldn't see anything distinctive about it at all. In fact, it was dull. "It's just a Black Sphere," Kal said. "Not just a Black Sphere," Tien said, taking out his canteen. He wetted his thumb, then rubbed it on the flat side of the Black Sphere. The wetness darkened the Black Sphere, and made visible an array of Black patterns on the Black Sphere. "See?" Tien asked, handing it back. The strata of the Black Sphere alternate Black, black, Black. The pattern was remarkable. Of course, it was still just a Black Sphere. But for some reason, Kal found himself smiling.
  15. Should I redo my Ooklafication to better fit the "Ookla the X" format?
