    Reading. In addition to (obviously) Brandon Sanderson's books I've read the basic classic Fantasy books - LotR, Narnia, Harry Potter - the ones that were popular in my country a few years ago - Riordan's mythologies, Artemis Fowl and the Inheritance Cycle, some books that I won't categorize like His Dark Materials trilogy, the Inkworld trilogy, the Underland Chronicles, Seven Wonders (by Peter Lerangis), the Sunlit Lands trilogy, the Books of Beginning trilogy, the Bartimeus trilogy, Lockwood & Co., The Chronicles of Pridain, Sabriel out of the Old Kingdom series, The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, Spiderweek, (the two last ones I remember, but didn't like too much, really) some random Fantasy books from the local library, Ella Enchanted (apparently), the Last Unicorn (it's an amazing book, you should read it) Five Kingdoms and Beyonders by Brandon Mull, The Homeward Bounders, Archer's Goon, the Worlds of Chrestomanci series, Fire and Hemlock, the Magids duology, Black Maria, the Time of the Ghost, the Power of Three and Hexwood by Diana Wynne Jones. I also write sometimes.
    Life? What is that? Never heard of such a thing, sorry. Now, if you allow me, there's this book I'm trying to read...
  1. Yes, it is by the same author! Those are some of my favourite books, really. Both series. I really recommend you try it. I can change the thread to be Jonathan Stroud, but those are literally the only books of his I've read (I mean both Bartimeus and Lockwood and Co.), so I'm unsure about it. On another note, I've watched the TV series up to episode 3. My impression so far:
  2. New to Fantasy and you're starting Stormlight Archives? ... Depending on the kind of person you are, it's quite ambitious of you. Then again, I'm pretty sure LotR was one of the first books I've read (probably later than I think, but I still read it during Elementary School)... So I'm not really one to talk.
  3. You are actually wrong. Rowling's house-elves are based on the fairy tale "the Shoemaker and the elves". Tolkienian elves go against those tropes to get to a different, perhaps older, version of elves, but Rowling's version has its origins.
  4. I think it should be "mine". I did read them now. Great to hear it's loyal to the books! I... Found myself nitpicking during the first episode, we'll see how it'll go from here. I did realize from some random things I've seen in the Internet, but after reading what you said in one of those status replies (in a spoiler)... It sounds overly so. Hope it works, anyway.
  5. All right. So far, my tries at starting threads here didn't go far, so I'm having my hopes down. Still, we'll see. Lockwood and Co. is one of my favorite book series to date (I should probably make a list), and now it got adapted to a Netflix series! Currently watching it, a tad suspiciously since I don't trust Netflix. Anyone else here who has read those books? If so, did you watch the series? What do you think?
  6. I think the Silvan one is called Sindarin. Also, that can be fun. Never understood why High Valerian is an option in Duolingo but Quenia and Sindarin aren't. The Hobbit house thing sounds fun, too!
  7. Galard frowned. "What is this ... Creature? Did it just look like a dragon?" He shook his head. "Anyway, I'm professor Galard, nice to meet you. And you are...?"
  8. It can be easily checked! You can say random facts, and we'll see how many upvotes you get! Though, all of the experiment conductors should be forbidden to upvote... And people will probably be weirded out by you randomly doing so... So it's probably a bad idea.
  9. Galard sat at the kitchen, an amused look on his face. He frowned for a moment at the small dragon that zipped around the room, returning every now and there to the timid girl that just entered. Then it changed to... A pot? Whatever this thing was, it was odd. "Hey, you can wait here while the soup is cooking." He told the girl. "Don't be scared of Klave there, he'll do you no harm."
  10. Me, with a surprising amount of people IRL: Also, at least two if my RP characters seem to be all too prone to get into such a situation. I mean, it's not like it's obligatory to ask people for their names when you talk to them... Right?
  11. Well, you got one detail kind of right. My hair is curly! And also dark, I think. Pretty brown. The rest is utterly wrong, I'm afraid. I'm not tall, really. I took growth hormones since elementary school - until I finished high school, more or less. Nowadays I'm around the average adult height, but on the shorter side. But, considering the fact I'm (technically) an adult... I will probably look relatively tall to people under sixteen. In theory. I don't think I will, though. In relation to my eyes... They're actually blue. I have a debate with my sister on whether I'm a lighteyes or a darkeyes, though. Thanks for the try, anyway!
  12. Huh... I'm kind of curious now to hear how people imagine me... But I haven't been very active lately, so most of you hardly know me. Plus, I can't really say how I imagine people - I can just say that I was kind of surprised when I've seen pictures of some people I know from the Shard. I guess I go with the default "profile pics" answer.
  13. Well, you probably don't remember it, but when you join the Shard there are a few odd jokes during the registration. One is that Rubix, one of the site's admins (I think) will own your soul unless you yodel with a sandal over your head, and that he'll probably sell it for a bagel in mere moments.
  14. Galard, who decided to go back to the kitchen to finish eating, raised his head to see the small group entering the room. He waved at Klave then resumed eating. *** After Klave left, Lightning lay down and went to rest.
