  1. It could always just be a homage; I can't say I've seen the film, so no idea how relevant they might to Skyward. ...though it could also just be a coincidence, of Brandon deciding on a word which fits for his race without intending to comment on the film at all. I'm pretty sure I've seen Krell (or slight variations of it) used as generic, fantasy-themed stuff before.
  2. Is the on-going any good? I have to admit, I've been a little tempted to pick up the Shattered Grid stuff (which means I'd have to buy the entire run up to that point, because I'm a completionist), but the only thing I've read of them so far has been the crossover with the Justice League, which was... fine.
  3. ... oops? My bad. Well, there's always pre-ordering, right?
  4. I've never actually gotten around to seeing Howl. Actually, I haven't seen most of the Ghibli collection; I kinda saw Princess Mononoke, and decided that clearly things could not be topped Pretty much what I was expecting Well, as I say, it seems to be a pattern in that book, so that could be something for you to hunt down or look up if you were so inclined? Like I said, stumbled across it, figured you'd like.
  5. @Kaymyth I think you're the resident "expert" on this type of thing, so. Reaction to the below picture? It's a knitting pattern from Alice Starmore's Glamourie. Figured it'd be up your alley
  6. Never heard of Kaiju no Kami, but I'm kinda curious in the sentai stuff. I saw the crossover movie between Goseiger and Gokaiger, which... ... well, even without watching anything else, they both were better than anything from Megaforce BUT. I have actually seen Time Force. Actually, I remember watching ti as a kid and liking it because it was so different and "darker" than traditional Power Rangers... man, that was a fun season.
  7. Well, Steins;Gate is still on my 'To Watch' list. The visual novel is one of my favourite things ever, to the extent that I seriously considered doing a thread about it so I could re-play and analyse the story, character beats, etc. As for shows I am watching though? Right now, I'm trying to keep up with Dragonball Super. I'm holding out hope for a third season of Konosuba! I've heard a few recommendations from people of currently airing series which are great, but I haven't gotten around to actually watching any of it yet...
  8. ...WELL. I can't unsee this now. Thanks? You, good sir, have forced my hand:
  9. So.. I just watched a video regarding trading card game stuff. Now, when I was a kid, I was sort of into Magic:The Gathering, Yu-Gi-oh, Pokemon... but it was never stuff I really got into. Still, this video kind of piqued my interest. Does anyone have any advice on where to look into this kind of stuff and how to get started as it were?
  10. You ever seen History of Power Rangers? Might be a video series that'd pique your interest... (I haven't seen much of the series past Lost Galaxy, though. I watched Super Megaforce and... yeesh. Talk about a waste.)
  11. @Del-light-full Just noticed the Kitty Pryde avatar. Should I start spamming you with X-Men related stuff now too?
  12. Should go without saying, I'll say it anyway: Screw these guys. This kind of passive-aggressive attempt at guilting someone into doing something is sort of downright despicable? So. Yeah. Take that Devianart membership and go have fun with it elsewhere.
  13. @A Budgie @Del-light-full I am not entirely sure how to feel about this. On the one hand, this is cool artwork, and yay, I inspired some art with a dumb random joke! ...on the other hand, I think the implicit part of this arrangement was that I'd write fanfic for this joke if there WAS art, so. Uh. Damnation. I'll.. start seeing if I can figure out some stuff then for actual writing
  14. Couldn't figure out a punny title for this thread. Bleh. Anyway... I feel as though I'm missing something with regards to Lyn, given an early reaction she has. When she meets Shallan, she expresses interest in the Knight Radiants. When Shall mentions that, despite having a Shardblade, she is still feminine, Lyn's reaction get's noticed by the text, and she sounds disappointed. (Don't have OB on me to cite the reference) That stood out to me as a signifcant line or moment, but I can't figure out what it's meant to show. Does Lyn just generally dislike Rosharan gender roles, and was deflated when Shallan reinforced it? She does mention towards the end that one of the other women has been training with a spear for year, jokingly referring to her as "cheating". So... yeah. What exactly are these comments hinting at? Lyn disliking gender stuff is the most obvious conclusion I can think of, but I'm not sure if that was Brandon's itnention or not...

    Amaram. I've ranted about him before on this forum, and the previous posts have gotten to the matter more thoroughly than I ever did, but I ultimately feel like he was a wasted opportunity at best, someone who existed primarily to add to Kaladin's "protagonist status" at worst. Real shame. I understand killing off Sadeas, since he was going to keep rehashing the same plot line of trying to discredit Dalinar, but Amaram had a lot of ties to a lot o characters, factions and concepts that had only begun to be hinted at in WoR, and then were unexplored in OB. I... really do not understand why Amaram died from a narrative standpoint.
