  1. I think different things are relatable to people. I just empathize with Shallan a lot and understand why she acts the way she does. That doesn't mean that Kaladin isn't the best.
  2. How can I choose? They are all amazing for different reasons. Szeth’s storyline and arc is so amazing. Wit is a fascinating character. Shallan is really relatable and interesting. Kaladin and Dalinar are absolutely epic. Adolin and Renarin are adorable and I love them and they are so cool. And Lift. I need not elaborate. Edit: I forgot Jasnah but I love her secrets and how she sees the world.
  3. Yeah that makes sense. Also, I guess the Big Three spren aren’t really the norm on this.
  4. Ah yes, that spiritual Mumbo Jumbo. *nods knowingly* So @Nameless, you’re saying that the Nahel spren know who they are going to bond (in a spiritual-realm way) before they transfer from the cognitive realm? But what about the Stormfather? He seemed pretty surprised when he bonded Dalinar.
  5. Where do we learn this? I thought she was first attracted to him by what he did for Amaram.
  6. So I’ve been bouncing this idea around for a while, and finally decided to type it up. So we know that Pattern bonded Shallan when she was younger, to the point that she could summon her shardblade (to kill her mum). After this she regresses somehow, possibly due to her self-forgetting stuff. Another example we know much less about is Tien, Kaladin’s younger brother. We don’t know a lot about what he did in Amaram’s army, but it is implied that he had reached a point in his Ideals that caught the attention of the Skybreakers enough that Nale felt he needed to be eliminated. I personally think he was at the first Ideal, but have little proof to back that up. So: what are the common threads in these two young lives? My theory: not their own lies, but the lies of those around them. We know that (Pattern at least) Cryptics are very curious about humans. Lyrin was hiding the gem theft, and we know that this caused a lot of strife in Hearthstone. Shallan’s mother was involved somehow with the Skybreakers before her death, and Lin was dealing with political issues (or was that just after Shallan’s mum died?) as well as dealing with debts. Also maybe the Ghostbloods. We know that Pattern is interested in the lies of people besides Shallan. Shallan and Tien are both “the light” of their respective households. The Lightweavers have been described as the “spiritual sustainers” of the Radiants. They are both artistic, and very curious about the world around them. If Cryptics are the spren of natural forces and the laws of nature, the interests of the spren and the knight would align in this. A few other parallels I don’t think are relevant: Shallan and Tien each have depressed older brothers. They are both interested in the creatures around them. They like gentle rains. Please point out anything that I’ve missed!
  7. Honor would be a possibility for the "H". Killer of Honor Keeper of honor House/home of Winds Help on the way
  8. Navani and Shallan are gonna get closer. Taravangian is Odium's new champion, and the compassion side of his boon/curse thing will be important to Odium's downfall. Lift and Lopen are going to be friends. Pancakes!!! Kaladin's dad is going to die.

    Another way of saying it: the chapters I most enjoyed reading were Raoden’s, the one I most enjoyed thinking about was Hrathen (because that was the best ever) and the character dialogue I enjoyed the most was Sarene. It’s a wonderful balance and Brandon is amazing.

    That's a really good way to phrase that thank you.
  11. How come no one has mentioned the whole "Rotten Tomato" thing (I can't remember what it's called exactly, I read BoM a while ago.) That was one of my favorite parts, because I thought it really showcased Wax+Wayne's relationship. (plus it reminded me of "Get Help" and, come on, is that not amazing?) And also, the fact that every single one of those ridicules names entailed an entire plan between them. I LOVE every time they interact!
  12. I am hoping for Axies the Collector to show up and help out the Coalition with the unmade, including lots of epic journeys, hopefully to Shinovar, Aimia, and the Peaks. Also, sibling relationships between Lift/Kaladin, Adolin/Renarin. And I know Lopen isn't really a viewpoint character, but he never really seemed broken to me and I want to know his story. Plus Shadolin :-)

    I think we can all agree that Hrathen's character arc is amazing. Some of you are saying that Raoden is boring, but I think it's kind of nice to have a Sanderson character that doesn't constantly fight depression. NOT that I dislike the depression, but Raoden's optimism is heartwarming. Sarene does get kind of annoying sometimes, but I think that Kiin and his family make up for that. I love them all. But I would have to say that my favorite part of the book was Raoden's, so Team Elantris here.
  14. I noticed in the Audible version of the Way Of Kings that they described Sadeas's men as wearing red, I'm fairly certain that it shoul be green. I think it was at the scene where he abandons Dalinar at the Tower.
  15. So, I like electronopop, and as I was listening to my favorite artist (Owl City) there was this song that reminded me of mistborn, specifically Spook. It's called Embers by Owl City, Album name: The Midsummer Station here are the lyrics: There were days when each hour was a war I fought to survive There were nights full of nightmares and I dreaded closing my eyes There were skies that burst open with a downpour to drown me alive But the world took a spark like a match in the dark and the fire brought me to life So I'm fanning the flames to climb so high 'cause there's no other way we can stay alive 'Cause we're burning bright as we all unite And when it's all said and done we'll shine like the sun so don't let the fire die And we'll watch the sky as it fills with light And though the embers are new, whatever you do just don't let the fire die And you'll find, there'll be mornings when the ashes and embers are cold But you'll fight with a passion and you'll never stop 'cause you know Yeah you know it gets better and your story is yet to be told Every push, every shove, every war, every love Yeah the coals are beginning to glow So I'm fanning the flames to climb so high 'cause there's no other way we can stay alive 'Cause we're burning bright as we all unite And when it's all said and done we'll shine like the sun so don't let the fire die And we'll watch the sky as it fills with light And though the embers are new, whatever you do just don't let the fire die Don't let the fire die It gets better Just don't let the fire die, no 'Cause we're burning bright as we all unite And when it's all said and done we'll shine like the sun so don't let the fire die And we'll watch the sky as it fills with light And though the embers are new, whatever you do just don't let the fire die And though the embers are new, whatever you do just don't let the fire die Don't let the fire die Let me know your thoughts! I have more Mistborn songs.
