  1. So, what, in your opinion, is the strongest Compounder combatively, and why? I personally can't decide between Atium, and Chromium. Either one is practically unkillable, and if they attack you, you have practically no way to fight back. Originally my list of strongest included Gold and Steel, but I decided that Gold was out because it didn't have very good offensive capabilities and I cut Steel because you could easily be killed from behind in an ambush.
  2. Season two, episode twenty three "For me, Eragon was terribly cliche. For the thirteen year old boys picking up that as their first fantasy novel, it was not cliche" I read Eragon when I was eight Five years later, I'm reading Stormlight, the Iliad and Journey to the West Not sure whether the Iliad or Journey to the West count because the Iliad was assigned to me and I haven't actually managed to get Journey to the West but whatever, technicalities
  3. Cal: IRL nickname I don't want to disclose Dragout: Shortening of "knock-down-drag-out" Downer: Double meaning: partially a mocking name in reference to my sarcasm, boredness, and general unfun-ness, and partially a cocky name, implying that I'm good at "downing" the enemy Spur: Wild-west related name because I live there and I love the concept
  4. So I'm wondering how to add references to coppermind pages, specifically WoB references. How do I do this?
  5. Rules: -You still have your own mind, but with some characteristics of the original character tagged onto you -You can transform into that character and back into yourself whenever you please -I'm not talking about living out the story of that character, just having some of their characteristics I would pick Nightblood Because what's more awesome than being a huge, evil-destroying, sentient sword? The problem with that is I can't really do much on my own But Nightblood is really cool Barring Nightblood, I'd probably go Elend or Wax.
  6. 1. I'm not 100% sure. I'm gonna have to give a suite; Glynda, Yang, Ironwood, and Taiyang. 2. Emerald 3. Oh... I don't really know. Probably Tyrannopotomos Rex 4. For what?
  7. The problem is thus If I ever become a full-time writer, I want to never, ever bring back someone from the dead. I want everyone who pays attention to my work that if someone should be dead, they are dead, and dead for real. However I also want to play a trick like this at least once-someone thought to be dead returns, only it turns out the person really is dead and the returned person is an impostor I'm sure you see the problem, but I'll spell it out anyways: If I always kill my characters for real, then everyone's immediately gonna know something is up when someone returns from the grave. I won't get the proper, "WHOA, THEY'RE ALIVE AFTER ALL" reaction, but instead, a "okay... what sorcery is this that someone who is obviously dead is back? the author is obviously messing with us" reaction.
  8. Good advice
  9. I'm honestly shocked that no one has mentioned Zuko from A:tLA yet, but he's the first villain from my favorite series(that's plural there) that came to mind as really compelling. As I think about it, I also really like Makishima from Psycho-pass. He's a very interesting character, partly because of how terrifying he is as a sadistic genius and partly because you find yourself sometimes agreeing with him when he talks about the way the Sibyl system holds people back from being their true selves. The only book villain I can add to this list is the final villain of the Heroes' Guide books, because he manages to be hiarious and genuinely threatening at the same time.
  10. Stereotypical Shonen Anime Protagonist Hi, I'm a young male who has powers rivaling those of the strongest beings in the world/universe! I never give up on anything or anyone, even when what I'm doing is super dumb. I'm also invincible, because my power always grows according to how powerful my opponent is! Oh, and I'm also invincible because I have friends. Not like anyone else has those. Also, I'm always cut as heck, whether I'm a skinny and five feet tall or ripped and seven feet tall. You can call me Sun Natsu.
  11. Well the Allomancers burn all of the metal(unless they're semi-suicidal and/or Zane) before it gets through their stomach, and they usually put it in something digestible.
  12. And besides, IIRC drinking blood causes digestive issues.
  13. I very much doubt it. It doesn't seem possible for Lurchers or Mistborn or iron in their own blood, though we do know via WoB that the metal just has to be inside of you, not necessarily eaten. Then again, perhaps it is possible and no one has ever tried just due to the sheer inefficiency of doing that.
  14. Alloy of Law Edit: Darn, BitBio beat me to it
  15. This is actually a really complicated issue, because 1) Brandon has said that he intended for it to be center of mass 2) But the lines are from the chest, IIRC because Brandon thought that was center of mass when first writing the books 3) also I believe there are some instances of mistborn and coinshots accurately shooting coins from the hand, which would be pretty difficult using actual center of mass but not too hard from the chest. I don't remember any specific instances of this, however, so it's possible that they always use shotgun-like sprays of coins
  16. So yeah, this is what I made for the Tyrannopotomus Rex prompt in a recent episode. Enjoy, if you can Trouble was coming. The bull Tyrannopotomus Rex could sense it; smell it in the air. But of course trouble was coming. It's always coming at the beginning of stories; if there were no trouble, there would be no drama, and therefore no way for ridiculous and silly things like the Tyrannopotomus Rex to become ridiculously popular with the masses. However, you have been lied to. I don't know how, or where, or why, or when, but it has happened once in your life. Also just now when I lead you to believe that trouble was immediatly forthcoming. The truth is, the trouble our heroic Tyrannopotomus Rex feared was not to arrive until hours after his original observation. I could have used a short, efficient timeskip, but I chose to do this instead to help you have some empathy for the poor animal. He literally did nothing but stand in a river for 10 hours, and I hoped to impress on you the insane levels of boredom he heroically endured. He cleverly took a nap to pass the time, boldly leaving his herd defenseless for hours in end, despite the fact that he knew danger was coming. Now, I’ve already wasted a lot of your time, but I have decided that you still cannot empathize with our Most Excellent Protagonist™, so I have added the following intermission. No, I’m not going to let this up. Quit trying to convince me. You won’t deceive me with your lies; this is not ruining the flow of my story, no matter how you slander me. This is boring? I suppose… but that’s the point! Oh, fine. The trouble eventually did come, in the form of a tribe of Tribicerasontops. They were charging at the river the Tyrannopotomus Rexes(Rexs? Rexii?) were resting in, running from something; probably their own collective shadows, or perhaps a groundhog. The bull Tyrannopotomus Rex prepared to fight, because he was an animal, and had no concept of diplomacy or even getting out of people’s way. The other Tyrannopotomus Rexii fled, leaving the bull alone. He did not care. In fact, it is likely he did not notice, and was distracted by an insect floating in the water. That hypothesis would also explain why, when the charging herd of furry monstrosities crashed into the river, the bull Tyrannopotomus Rex did nothing to defend himself and was ingloriously slaughtered by the bovisaurs. As he fell, the ugly brute reflected one the fragility of life, and regretted abandoning his herd(he had, by this point, noticed the herd had gone; however, he assumed that he had somehow wandered downriver). How he did this, despite being--as we established earlier--a dumb animal, is a question still debated by scientists to this day.
  17. Well of course Actually I think Warbreaker is the only Cosmere book I haven't read
  18. I didn't read Warbreaker, and actually still haven't but I did look up the plot on the coppermind...
  19. There are 45 possible combinations of Surges, 35 of which aren't actually canon. Out of those, which do you think are coolest?
  20. Cool that you finally got this up on here
  21. She's a literal professor, if I recall correctly
