  1. I think everyone is a Kelsier guy at heart, deep down. Even the Lord Ruler. Hi! Welcome to the 17th Shard! I think you are going to love it here. Do you have a favourite magic system?
  2. I will stand with you if it comes to that. I've always liked Adolin. I think it is admirable that he tries to put his own spin on things, with his fashion choices, with how he acts towards others, or how he is so attached to his blade. I like how he is loyal, but not blindly loyal. And I love how this chapter gave us so many reasons to love him. His interactions with Syl and Kaladin, how he is respectful towards The Three, and how he is just trying to help people in his own way. I'm hoping Brandon continues to treat Adolin right. I agree completely. Though I'm pretty sure there will be some people who come out of sessions with him even more mental than they were going in. Just the by-product of the fact that not everyone appreciates the way Hoid deals with problems and lessons (see pretty much everyone's interactions with him as Wit). His couple scenes with Shallan are some of my favourites, I find it interesting how fascinated with her he is. I wonder what he would think of the issues she's been having with her personalities (the ones that Radiant was hinting at in this chapter).
  3. We can't be the only hockey players on a forum of this side. That's just crazy. Hi! I play left wing or center. I've played on a rural team, church hockey with my dad, and a girls league. I haven't played on an actual league in a long time, but my friends and I play it for fun at the local arena every once in a while. My favourite NHL team is Vancouver Canucks, and it has been my favourite team since I was old enough to know what the NHL was. I am not just somebody who jumped on the band wagon when they were doing good.
  4. This is an amazing story. I love it. It just... works so well.
  5. Yes, it is.
  6. A dart made from mistletoe that you've kissed someone under.
  7. I actually read Steelheart way back in 2014, and to be honest I wasn't really a big fan of the series. That put me off of any of Brandon Sanderson's work for a long time, even though I had a bunch of people around me telling me I should read them. Finally last year I read Mistborn, and I was hooked. The Reckoners are now the only books by Brandon that I do not like. Everything else I've read, I've loved. Including Skyward. And I am definitely glad my friends kept pushing me to read his books.
  8. Whoa whoa whoa. That is a rabbit hole I was choosing NOT to follow. But yikes, if that's going to be the case it would be chaos (not that the Stormlight books aren't chaos already), and I don't know if Brandon would be able to pull it off. Though it would be interesting to see that path, and it would be way to explore some Radiant stuff not seen before, I don't think I'm ready to see Pattern die. Or Adolin die. Or Shallan not heal from the trauma of her past. I want to see her come to grips with the truth of what her family was, and what she did. I want her to find herself, not just as ways to survive, but as a way to thrive. I need her to overcome the lies. If Brandon can do that through her breaking her oaths, I will accept that. But if he uses her just to be a experiment in Radiant's breaking their oaths, without using that to help her heal... that is a fate that Shallan does not deserve.
  9. I loved this chapter. I think this one and the chapter with Venli are my favourites so far. The interactions between characters, the implications and hints of things to come... I didn't think it was possible but I'm even more excited about Dawnshard than I was before this chapter. Rock has always been one of my favourite characters, and now I have a feeling I'm going to fall in love with his family and their story. And Hoid! I can't wait to see more of him, and Rock seems to know more about him than we do. I wonder what we are going to find out about him from Dawnshard. What does Rock mean by calling him a god? Aldo I think Kaladin should go to the Peaks. I liked the interaction between Pattern and Veil, poor Shallan going to have to explain where babies come from... it's going to be close to the level of "No mating!" for Shallan. I like it that Radiant is acknowledging that The Three are not doing as good as Veil or Shallan would like everyone to believe. And the fact that she thinks Kal helps is interesting. Though I don't think that Brandon is trying to hint at Shallan and Kaladin are going to be a thing after Adolin dies. Or at least I hope not. I liked their interactions in the previous books, but more as friends rather than potential love interests. And Syl is amazing. I love her. She is so smart, and funny, and beautiful, and just... amazing.
  10. Finished reading Thrawn and Thrawn: Alliances (by Timothy Zahn) yesterday.
  11. Exactly. I don't understand the hate and animosity toward her, in my opinion she is a well written character, and I relate a lot to her struggle with finding her identity. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, of course. Mine is just that Shallan is a good character.
  12. In my choir the Altos were the favourite. But then again I'm a Mezzo-Soprano (Soprano 1 or 2 in that choir though, depending on the song), and I was one of the teacher's favourites. Not to brag or anything. That person doesn't know much about choir or singing in general then. You should teach them, I think that they would benefit from learning.
  13. I've had people suggesting I read his works for a long time, but I just never got around to it. Until my local bookstore had Mistborn in part of a buy 2 get 1 free thing. I read it, and the next time I went book shopping I bought every single Cosmere book I could find. And I've been hooked ever since.
  14. I tend to like the characters most other people don't. Exactly.
  15. I don't think it's negative, you can learn a lot about someone by what character they dislike. The problem is with Sanderson's work there isn't really a bad guy you can hate. Most of them you can understand why they would do something. Though I would have to say Elend's father is the character I dislike the most. I really don't like him.
