So I've been wondering about what it's like to be a Returned in Idris (mostly because I'd want to read that fanfic). And I realized that, as far as I'm aware, we don't have either canon info or WoBs for, like ninety percent of it. So I'm not asking for answers per se, just informed speculation. Or baseless speculation, if there's nothing to be informed by. Or headcanons. - Is there any reason Idrians would keep a Returned's past a secret, like they do in Hallandren? Or is it, "Hey, Bob! Yeah, your name is Bob*. Also, that's your parents and your sister and your favorite dog over there." - Idrian Returned re-die at the end of the week. I'm assuming that there's not much time to go around healing people**. There's also not much time to make a long-term social difference. So what sort of task does Endowment send them back for? Do they all have visions like Vo? - Also, do Returned whose task doesn't involving giving up their Breath have that moment of recollection like Lightsong had? Or do they just muddle along? - Since Idrians are all about being ostentatiously non-ostentatious, do you think their Returned look smaller and plainer than they did when alive? - How do you think they feel about knowing they're going to shortly die again? And that if they ate Breath they'd live? Do you think they ever try to run away to Hallandren or something? *Unless Lightsong's drunken monkey of naming has a gig in Idris, too, then it would be "Hey, Nounverber the Adjective! Your name used to be Bob!" ** I suppose if they were already in the same general area as the person who needed healing, it would be possible.
WARNING: Extreme spoilers for Alcatraz Versus the Shattered Lens. This is just baseless speculation, since Alcatraz is not a Cosmere story, but I thought I'd post it anyway. Someone threw a rock and broke my family's window a few days ago, and I got to thinking. a shard (non-cosmere) is a piece of shattered glass. Adonalsium shattered, right? Well, I had just finished Alcatraz four, and I thought that maybe Alcatraz caused the shattering. He somehow broke the Smedry Talents at the end there. What if it was Adonalsium who bestowed the talents through glass (or possibly WAS glass), similarly to how Preservation and Ruin gave Feruchemy, Hemalurgy, and Allomancy? What if Alcatraz accidentally shattered the possibly glass Adonalsium into shards and therefore broke the talents and started the cosmere? Let the feedback begin.
