  1. What is dark one? Im confused
  2. hi all, i was excited to read legion and it started off good but i was thrown back by the almost anti-palestine undertones, the painting of israel as a haven, and the non-distinction between muslims and terrorist. was this just me? has anyone else picked up on this? am i overthinking?
  3. So I recently finished White Sand prose version and the ending mentioned that Kenton was goign to go visit Khriss. I couldn’t find a sequel so I turnd to the graphic novles and went straight to teh end of Volume III, which has the same ending as the prose one and doesn’t continue it. I noticed a lot of differences between the graphic noels and prose as well, so a few questions: 1. Is there something that continues those events? 2. Do I have to read the graphic novels - are there any differences that are importnat? 3. Is White Sand non-canon, then? Thanks!
  4. Hi all! I've finally hopped on to the 17th Shard bandwagon in my search for answers, fanart, and theories, as well as my slight obsession with incorrect quotes. I've read Mistborn eras 1 and 2, Elantris, Warbreaker, and The Stormlight Archive (inc TWOK Prime). That's all from a Brandy Sandy fan from Down Under
  5. I’ve finished The Stormlight Archive twice (only twice, I know…), and my opinion of Moash has changed drastically during my reread. At first, I completely and utterly hated him without regret. Then, on my reread, I was able to appreciate the depth of his character. I find myself half wanting him dead, and half wanting him to get the best redemption arc ever. I’m pretty sure on other bases (like tumblr or reddit) there’s a really strong This post has been reported for attempting to skirt the rules Moash group which I don’t like the idea of, mostly because they don’t appreciate the dimensions of his character, at least from what I’ve seen. I’ll put my full opinion of Moash below, but I’m asking you guys what you think about Moash, and what you want to see happening to him in the next few books vs. what might actually happen etc. Also, my sister said she believes Moash “did what he had to do” but upon further questioning doesn’t give me any answers, so if someone could please explain what you think she might mean? Okay, my opinion, all over the place, and based off several points i saw on reddit/tumblr + my own beliefs (so some of these arent my own): (TL;DR - i have a love-hate relationship. i can understand why he did what he did, but i still hate him for it. i want him to drop dead and iw ant to see a sick redemption arc.still figuring out my position.) People ask why we hate Moash so much when Dalinar did so much worse, and I definitely agree, but one of the reasons might be because Moash doesn’t take responsibility for his actions whilst Dalinar does (ft. epic Oathbringer you cannot have my pain) its not about fairness or jstuice for him most of the time, its revenge. hes eager to take advantange, but not to take responsibility. he takes the path of cowardice and refuses to be held accountable for his choices. (but then, can we htae him for being human?) he feels bad, but a bad that leads to “I wish I could have done it without feeling pain” rather than “I wish I didnt do it” (yes, yes we can) also he doesnt fight against oppression, he fights against lighteyed oppression, and thinks that fused oppression is better HE KILLED TEFT </3 I’m open to the idea of a redemption arc, I don’t like him at all but understand the reasoning behind his choices. I’m willing to give him a chance. About Elhokar…I don’t know how I feel about him still. Elhokar had potential and Brandon was trying to make us feel that, and I kidna WAS feeling that. But I do understand that Elhokar was Moash’s Amaram, almost. His black cloak on the hill RoW scene was pretty cool I gotta admit it SUICIDE BAITING KALADIN. I can’t seem to get past this. As someone who’s been struggling with getting help for my depression and suicidal thoughts for years, I felt this on a different level. NOT OKAY, MOASH! But my lovely sister (who compares my depression to Kaladin’s then invalidates both of ours) believes she understands why he did that, and in his own way he was genuinely trying to make Kaladin feel better. maybe he was. (he wasnt) HE LITERALLY TRIES TO KILL KAL, WHO SAVED HIS LIFE he’s a nuanced character and i can appreciate that he chooses to stay with bridge 4 then betrays them betrays many oaths and promises he makes, constantly lies (but who didnt?) in case you forgot, teft went from “im broken” to “im loved” as he died Hes completely aware and happy that odium took away his emotions and whenever hte bond weakens he panics and tries to get it back immediately instead of going “omg no emotions made me do terrible stuff” I hope odium throws him off and leaves him blind, alone, and with a mountain of guilt. Once again I will support a redemption arc if he feels the pain of what hes done i dont reeeallyyy appreciate how brandon (maybe unconsciously) framed the victim of racism, being a poc myself i can understand a few of the things moash felt (kinda) (ig) so i can feel some, SOME level of sympathy for moash. moash, not vyre id want more from brandon around the racism thing tho. lots of potential that moash had before he went into this downward arc. i feel like hes being framed as ur typical villain and slowly losing hsi humanity so i dont really like that but yeah I might add more later.
  6. my sister just finished reading the climax (part 5) of oathbringer and called it “ok” and “passable” and said shes “read better”. PASSABLE!?!?!? >:O
  7. What/who are the Shards, what does Hoid have to do with anything (or why does Hoid get involved in everything), what are all the planets...basically, how does the Cosmere work?
  8. thank you! and thank you everyone else. very helpful
  9. too much time in urithiru, doing nothing
  10. yeah, just a plaec to express… the same books as me, actually - classics, high fantasy, thriller, adventure, mystery, you name it. she was the one who introduced me to sanderson, actually, but i enjoyed it so much that i read the series much faster than her.
  11. are all the planets (like scadrial, roshar, uhh the elantris one, the warbreaker one) are they all orbiting the same sun?? or is it like, in the cosmere there are like 6 suns and separate solar systems or something and each has a random amnt of planets but the sahrdworls are scattered between them?
