  1. I'm sorry if this is weird to anyone but I am curious to know on what makes up the community. If you are uncomfortable answering that is fine, this is just a generalization for me or anyone else who would like to know these facts. Again I am just curious as to knowing what the fandom is in general.
  2. So this deserves a separate thread. Some of the old spren used to have 4 genders because people didn't imagine them. Parshendi have 4 genders. Male, malen, female, femalen. That was cool. And significant. And oh bother... the spren had 4 genders originally because the Parshendi were the first ones responsible for directing their identity!
  3. So, awhile ago i posted a paper i wrote in a communications class. Apparently it didn't upload correctly, so i thought i would upload it again. To quote from my original post, "So, I wrote this paper a while back for a communications class... about a year back... and I promised to post it after I was finished and got the paper graded. I never did, and I apologize for that. Well, here it is. Its terrible, but if you like it let me know. If you have thoughts, please post. I'd like to see what everyone else's head cannon is and where I got it wrong. I did try and get this published in a student publication but it sadly got ignored, which stung. Please let me know what you think." Apparently i can't just upload the Word Doc, so instead i'll provide a link to the Gmail Doc. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7wrh9YZZTDhdGtEMXA1SG1XNDQ/view?usp=sharing

  5. Edit: This was already discussed here. Didn't see despite searching. My bad! Nothing new here, move along. So - I've been toying around with that ever-since I've noticed that Renarin's spren is male and people don't always end up with the opposite gender. What if the gender of the spren you bond reflects on the gender you are attracted to? Just to clarify: I'm perfectly fine with people being attracted to whatever, as long as two consenting adults are involved.
  6. Hello Everyone, For a School project that i am doing i have to make a presentation to my Librarian on seven books that i have read, and in the presentation i must recommend whether the book should be added to the library's collection, or i can recommend that it be removed. The decision to add or remove must be based on the gender stereotyping found in each book and what people will learn about the role of gender from reading it I am basically done with the presentation but i feel like i am repeating myself throughout the presentation and i have run out of good ideas/examples. So i thought that i would turn to the community that i know best and that i have found to be extremely intelligent and fair in regards to discussion/argument of a topic. Which is why i humbly come to you now. The seven books (Note that i can use an entire series as a single book) that i have chosen to analyse in terms of Gender stereotyping are as follows: 1) Stormlight Archive 2) Mistborn 3) warbreaker 4) Elantris 5) The Painted Man (Peter V. Brett) 6) The Name Of the Wind (Patrick Rothfuss) 7) The Black Prism (Brent Weeks) I look forward to the discussions we will have around this sensitive topic. if i do use any ideas or comments from our discussion i will reference it completely.
  7. Hey guys, I've been skimming over the associations between the 4 developing Knights Radiant we've seen (including the one from the WoR interlude) and the Heralds. It makes sense that they seem to have matching character attributes (e.g. Kaladin clearly has Jezrien's "Divine Attributes" of protecting/leading), but I noticed that all 4 Knights also match the genders of their respective Heralds. I want to throw a few ideas around for discussion: Brandon's mentioned that we've met multiple Heralds already, beyond the opening chapter in WoK. Is it possible that there's some reincarnation or amnesia element that could make one of our main characters an actual Herald without us knowing? If this gender aspect is, in fact, not just by chance, it opens the way for new guesses on people who could develop into Radiants. Note that there can only be one new female character that becomes a Knight (since we've got 3 female Radiants already out of the 4 female Heralds), and that person would have to match the attributes of Chach (bravery/obedience) I haven't seen anything that completely nails down the mechanics of how spren are involved in the evolution of a Radiant, but does it matter that Syl is female while Kaladin is male?
