  1. This is great! On a completely unrelated note, here is my obligatory plug for the place to put all things Cosmere song parody:
  2. I would flip the bottom two attributions because, ya know, [WoR Spoilers]. Also: Person: ...and you are a hypocrite! Dalinar: Sometimes, a hypocrite is just someone in the process of changing. Bavadin: I'm not a hypocrite, we are a god. There's a difference.
  3. I'm not new (and no, I won't eat the cookies), but I've been away from the Shard and all Brandon Sanderson stuff since May, and I feel a bit like a newcomer having missed do much time (I apparently missed approximately 42 Cytoverse books). To help catch me up (and because it is in the spirit of the new year) I'd love to hear peoples: Favorite 2021 Shardcast Favorite or craziest 2021 WOB Favorite fandom event or meme that started in 2021 Favorite other thing that I probably missed that you think I should know about Any song parody ideas to help me start living up to my self-imposed title again
  4. Oooh, good idea. Encanto is very good.
  5. Thanks, when I logged on I noticed I had a new follower, so that was exciting. Any requests?
  6. So, I haven't visited the Shard or looked at any WoBs in like 8 months, and I need to get caught up. If you see this, please help me fill in what I missed by giving me a:

    1. Must read WoB
    2. Must see Shardcast episode
    3. Must know-about Fandom-wide meme or major event
    4. Cosmere song parody idea

    A preemptive thank you to anyone who actually does this

    1. AonEne


      Must-see Shardcasts? Brandon Sanderson's Use of Horror and Queerness in the Cosmere, definitely. :ph34r: Aside from those, Jasnah is good, Moash is good, Beefs 2 is good... 

  7. Well done. I'm a huge fan of Hadestown, too.
  8. Also, which Singer is TN?
  9. That one took me a second. Bravo.
  10. I'd flip Hoid and Lift.
  11. She isn't in any books. She makes a cameo in Wax & Wayne and Secret History, and is otherwise not in any Cosmere works. In addition to her cameos, she is in White Sand, and unpublished novel that will most likely never be released in any form. My lawyers tell me that I have to stop pretending that the White Sand graphic novels don't exist. Joking aside, they aren't actually bad, just a weird story choice for a graphic novel adaptation with a few memetic issues. Also, everyone keeps forgetting they exist. (e.g. calling the years where they were published "Cosmere free years" on Shardcast a few times.)
  12. TOO SOON!
  13. As you can probably tell from the post below, it is my birthday.

    I'd like to thank the academy...

    1. Aspiring Writer

      Aspiring Writer

      Happy Birthday. I was going to wish you until I saw you haven't been on in a while.

    2. Personification


      Finals etc. I still check the site often, though, and I'm trying to get back to posting enough to charitably call myself an active member.

      Happy birthday!

  14. I think Overlord Jebus.
  15. One level higher: The schoolbus is a really overweight kandra.
  16. It felt needed.
  17. Ba-dum tssss
  18. I was referencing the "Is this the Magic Schoolbus?" thing.
  19. I'm sorry to hear about your great-aunt. What you're doing is really great. To tie the subject back to the Cosmere a bit, one of my favorite moments in Mistborn: TFE is when Vin takes the extra baywrap to keep the bread for later, because whenever I heard stories from survivors they said that when they were rescued and given their first opportunity to have food without worrying about scarcity, they did what Vin did in that scene, just in case they wouldn't have another opportunity to get the food. It made the scene feel very real, and it hammered home for me how difficult Vin's life would have been. (Yes, I know, "big surprise, Brandon is a great author," but still.) And now for something completely different: I am too young for it to give me nostalgia and it gave me nostalgia. Also, now I'm just imagining hundreds of overlapping spanreed messages from across the world all saying "Is this the Floating Platform?"
  20. It IS too long. It's literally freezing up my computer when I try to view the thread and reply. With that said, how about we just make it Sanderson characters with names beginning with L? You took Lift, so she's out. You also didn't give a prompt, so I won't remove anyone. This list is still too long, so I want to do a 2-in-1, and because the theme is L I want to make all of the questions L related. With that said, which pair of characters here are most likely to fall in Love?
  21. In your defence, due to a somewhat confusing etymology, DID and schizophrenia are often conflated in media, despite having little in common.
  22. Interesting. What was the interview for, if you don't mind me asking?
  23. I was about to make a joke about the improbability of a significant religious story containing frogs for him to have stored in order to make that work when I realized that I, and I believe you, tell one annually. Kosher high five.
  24. I imagine they were pre-ascension, but frogs are super-fragile, amphibious, and sometimes breathe through their skin. There is almost no way they survived the existence of the ashmounts.
