  1. I feel like Kaladin looks too old for the age he is (twenty, IIRC) but maybe that's just me. Where'd his slave brands go? I can't see them. I also imagined his hair being longer and wavier. The way the background looks and the stormlight make up for it 10000% though.
  2. I realize I typed it wrong. Whoops. Also, the alphabet mafia is exactly why GRSM is needed.
  3. horror

    Can you link the WoB? As for the Cherenkov Radiation, the amount of radiation you would need to get that kind of glow would kill you, or at the very least give you radiation poison. Unless Rosharans are all somehow resistant to ionizing radiation. Perhaps the heat from the compressed air is used to form the blade? If the blades automatically pull from the surrounding air's heat, they could (in theory) draw enough out to form frost.
  4. I've been using GRSM (Gender, romantic, and sexual minorities) and SAGA (Sexual and gender minorities). SAGA rolls right off the tongue but it isn't as inclusive. Anyways. I do think that there is a long way to go in terms of GRSM representation in adult sci-fi/fantasy (Meaning books not marketed as YA). The YA genre has actually done pretty well in terms of this - there are lots of popular fantasy books with non-straight leads or side characters. In fantasy books marketed towards adults I have seen 0. Unless you count The Priory of the Orange Tree. Brandon is a very popular author and has lots of influence. Surely he could use his platform for representation?
  5. The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. It's a stand-alone epic fantasy with DRAGONS!
  6. Brandon: I'm going to write a short story Also Brandon: How about 30k words that sounds short
