    . Let me make this clear, I don't just like Kaladin and dislike Shallan because he's good with the spear and she isn't. However, being hyper capable is typically a likeable trait in a character, you get to see a someone like Kaladin be incredible like in the arena scene "honour is dead, but I'll see what I can do.". I also like Kaladin because of how he grows as a character, how he moves the plot and just the bridge four segment essentially forced me to love him. Shallan however, she's not strong, at least not as much as it seems she is. She just forgets the pain. Its cop out and it really annoyed me when everyone went crazy over how strong she was when she was just forgetting. Also, it really annoyed me that he just somehow managed at the age off like 4, to somehow have achieved the second ideal, having gone through no hardship. (this was before any problems with her father. The oaths of a lightbringer are about accepting truths what bloody truths did she accept at the age of 4. I also have to make a few concessions. I liked her philosophy arc and I was getting excited when she was on the ship with Jasnah but mostly I liked those scenes not for her but for Jasnah, the questions it raised and Pattern. Let me get this clear Pattern is by far my favourite spren. Ok her jokes, sure yeah she's making unfunny quips but we don't even get to know why she felt the need to do them till like half way through book two, up until then she was just this annoying little rat who kept trying to be funny. Like ooh well done you managed to call him a big bloody crab without him barely realising, no that's not funny it's annoying.

    Alright let me get down to why she annoys me. She goes around especially in the first two books, always coming up with these funny little quips. But there not funny, there annoying. Not like hoid who mocks people she just tries to be clever. Now how she interacts with other characters. Alright why did sanderson, if he wanted to make is like Shallan then why the hell the first thing she did once she got to the plains was antagonise established characters. She stole his boots, had an argument, a fight, and in every situation she won. They clashed so much that you were kind of forced to choose. Who the hell going to choose Shallan over kalladin at the start of book 2. And the fact that she won meant that you just wanted her to lose at least. And what the hero is there to like about her. Kalladin is a badass or in Brandon's words, hypercompetent. Dalinar is a plot mover. Adolin is also hypercompetent. Even Renarin is an underdog. All these things make them likeable, Shallan has nothing of these. The only time that she becomes a plot mover is most of the way through book 2 which is the point when I start to slightly like her. Can someone tell me a single likeable trait about her before book 2.5?
  3. nightwatcher

    It's a good theory. However I think that in one of the WoB he refers to the nightwatcher as one of the bondspren. It would be cool if the bondsmith for her had to wish for the bond. However on the wishing for radiance part it's more complicated. I expect that one of the invigorators would have asked for it. However the nightwatcher doesn't grant any wish. She just takes the desires and then grants any wish or boon she thinks they deserve. So I guess that she simply didn't grant that kind of wish.
  4. I'm not stunning saying that the sibling was not the spren in the fabrial however I don't think that the sibling is the spren of urithiru. i.e. the manifestation of what people think of urithiru. A bondspren is the spren of a shard. To put it in reference, a shard is more powerful than a planet, more than a galaxy. If it weren't for the other shards they would be able to rule the entire universe with ease.
  5. I think people misunderstand what the sibling I don't think that it is the spren of urithiru as that spren would be strong but not nearly on the order of magnitude of the bondspren. So the sibling is either of odium or of some fusion of honor and cultivation. This means that it would have more perhaps the ability in the case of odium See the future Be able to take passion Or in case of the fusion Be some fusion of the two powers

    There is also the fact that he is trying to redeem himself. Not to anyone else but to himself by saving the world. If someone massacres thousands then saves billions are they then redeemed or are they vile and good at the same time. I think that because Dalinar was able to change her becomes a good man who had committed heignous crimes.
  7. It's safe to say that synthetic gemstones won't be available for a large amount of time and that the average person will not have piles of suffered soon. However the average person does have quite a few smaller gems. So having a fabrial that can be renued with stormlight is not so unreasonable. However assume it so. If so I reckon everyone will have heaters with rubies. They will have dishwashers that produce water with rain or river spren and then blow that around with wind spren. They'll have tumblerdryers with flame and wind spren. How do you reckon they will create trains? They'd need some kind of motion spren. I don't know if wind spren are that already.
  8. It's said that shardblades are modelled after honourblades however it seems that shardblades are just what happens when a cognitive shadow (spren) manifest fully in the physical realm. It is the same material as in Honorblades. Investiture made manifest. So that being true it seems less that the bond is modelled after the herald honor bond and more that it was just inspired. So if that's the case then why is it that shardblades form as swords.
  9. Who has the massive spiritual presence Dalinar? Gavilar?
  10. Oh sorry I was thinking about perfect spheres as a unit.
  11. (SPOILERS) We learn in the chapter preview that Brandon just released that kaladin is trying to sneak into hearthstone, now singer controlled. So what do you think he is trying to do. I think he is trying to either free the town or to retrieve a radiant they found in hearthstone. Since he won't be trying to get his family out as
  12. It was heavily implied in the moments when he was trying to swear the ideal that it was to do with not saving people. I don't think it's do with letting others save him as he was able to do that. I think that it's to do with letting people die or not protecting some but it will have to include something of protecting those he can.
