  1. If you're keen, you can tell who is the hero of ages at the third epigraph of the book. "In some ways, having such power was too overwhelming, I think. ......." Who else would say "i think" after anything he or she is uncertain?
  2. From the album Homemade Hero of Ages Movie Poster

    For anyone wondering, Vin is on the left, Elend on the right, and an abstraction of Ruin/Marsh in the middle.
  3. Opening Disclaimer: I'm sorry I'm not going to have the exact references directly in front of me, but my Dad has my copy at this time and is a slow reader. The part of Shadows of Self that really caught my attention, was the fact that MeLaan gave Wax his earring personally, on what I assume were Harmony's orders. It is confirmed as being a Hemalurgic spike, but the ability that is charged with the spike is unknown. My theory/hope is that the earring is the same earring as the one Vin wore during the original trilogy (giving it an allomantic bronze charge). I saw a post on here about the earring before, where the poster theorized that the earring has a pewter charge, as Wax is seen to be strengthened by the mists. Well, during HoA, didn't Vin become the Mists when she took the Shard of Preservation and drew all the mists into herself? Could she be giving him a slight physical boost as she did to Elend at the end of HoA? One of the things that made me think this (I'm really sorry about the reference part here) is the short aside from Wax in SoS where he talks about a form moving with him in the mists sometimes. Furthermore, in several sections of the book he muses about Vin and what she would have been like, but what if she is really the form in the mists that he can sense when he is about? Here is where I think about how Vin was able to sense the Mist spirit using her bronze, and maybe the Bronze allomantic charge of his earring allows Wax to be able to sense Vin in the mists. Partially related to the above theory, but how is an allomantically charged hemalurgic spike used? Did inquisitors have to actually ingest the metals they needed before using the abilities, or did the spikes themselves provide a certain measure of the abilities? If they needed to actually ingest them, I could imagine duralumin steelpushes being very dangerous for inquisitors, as how could they see after doing something like that? (First post, Sorry if not put up in the right way)
  4. I just finishers HoA, and I've been wondering, does Sazed die? I mean, he is a but in the summary thing in Alloy of Law, it says that And on the Coppermind, it doesn't say when he is born or when he (maybe) died. So should I trust the summary thing for AoL, or the end of HoA? Oh, HA! This is sorta kinda barely like when Sazed was going through the religions!
  5. -- Contains some Secret History information-- On p660 of Hero of Ages, the first generation is discussing the clash between Ruin and Preservation, and notes that Preservation's Mind was basically destroyed: Just from a bit of consideration this brings up a few things: 1) It seems that "the shadow" is refering to the "sliver" that is left of Preservation's mind (referred to in the previous sentence). Shadow + Mind = Cognitive Shadow. I'm noting this link somewhat pedantically, because I think one could say that the second speaker wasn't referring to the Mind anymore, but I think that the juxtaposition makes my reading sensible. 2) If that's true, is the implication here that when a Vessel is sufficiently weakened, to the point that they must give up their Shard and become a Sliver, they would default to a cognitive shadow (I guess assuming they remain in the cognitive realm)? 3) Based on the nearby plot of HoA, I assume that the "image" being discussed is what eventually falls to earth as Leras's body. That would be the same "body" (cognitive shadow in the cognitive realm until it is destroyed at last) that Kelsier interacts with in Secret History, he himself being a cognitive shadow. If this is the case, does it imply that a cognitive shadow still retains connection to a physical body somehow? 4) If shades are cognitive shadows (implied in Secret History?), and shades are warded away by silver, and Vessel is a cognitive shadow (either always or just when it loses it's Shard), it could make sense that silver would be Allomantically inert, as it would have negative interactions with Preservation? How far afield have I gotten here? 5) How bad of a job have I done putting this in the right forum?
  6. One of my favourite descriptions from the HoA ball, she was in curves of black and he in lines of white. (If someone want to find the exact quote for me, I'm too lazy :P)
  7. From the album cloud world

    my secret sazed present for craftycowboyenemy on tumblr haha look at that handsome boy
  8. Alright guys, here's something I came up with and could not resist sharing with the rest of you Mistborn fans. You know that final battle in Hero of Ages? That final, heartbreaking battle? I found a song by Two Steps from Hell and decided to put it to the battle. Storms, it fit Perfectly. Please guys. try this. Play the song, and read the text below according to the timestamps I put. I promise you won't be disappointed ( I hope) 0:00- 0:30 = Vin, floating in the Mists. The army of Koloss advances, hundreds of thousands. Ruin stands gloating. Inside the pits, Elend is speaking. "I ask of you your lives. I ask of you your lives, and your courage. I ask of you your faith, and your honor - your strength and your compassion. For today, I lead you to die. I do not ask you to welcome this event. I will not insult you by asking you to call it well, or just, or even glorious. But I will say this." As he speaks, we see the people, their faces fearful. We see Sazed waiting. We see the Kandra collecting the atium. 0:30- !:00 = "Each moment you fight is a gift to those in this cavern. Every second we fight is a second longer that thousands of people may draw breath. Each stroke of the sword, each Koloss felled, each breath earned is a victory. It is a person protected for a moment longer, a life extended, an enemy frustrated!" As Elend speaks, their faces firm. They hold their weapons tighter. As his voice continues to speak, they assemble by the cave, looking out into the enemy beyond. They stood, Elend at the fore, a bright dot on an endless canvas of blue. Elend's voice rings as they move forward. "In the end, they will kill us. But first, they shall fear us!!!" 1:00- 1:40 Through Vin's eyes, Elend bursts with brilliant energy as the entire army charges at the Koloss. They don't die. They don't die, they explode with light just as Elend did, each man creating thousands of atium shadows. They meet the first wave, the Koloss swing their swords, and not a single Koloss sword finds its target. They don't die, every sweep of their swords destroy more than one Koloss, and every Koloss sword seems to miss by breaths. The Koloss start dying, and the army punches through them, performing incredible feats. They leap over swords, they sidestep blades, often causing the Koloss to kill each other in their anger. Not a single drop of human blood is spilled, but the ground is littered with Koloss corpse. They fight back, three hundred against hundreds of thousands. Each soldier as if a god, each soldier sweeping through the Koloss as if blades cutting water. And at their head, Elend, his white clothes glowing brighter than any other. They flag, but they down more beads of atium. Hundreds of thousands of beads being burned, an army invincible. 1:40- 2:08 Through Elends eyes, the world is white and blue, atium shadows and Koloss. He runs, untouchable, through the field. Hundreds of blue bodies lie in his wake. Then he falls. He hits the ground. He rolls out of the way of a sword, and downs another bead. His beads are low. He then hears the first human scream.He turns, to see one of his soldiers go down in a spray of blood. As he whirls, he understands. The atium is going. They have fought magnificently, but there is no more atium. Another soldier screams, his heart aches. He turns to see more and more of his soldiers going down screaming, and he sees Marsh the Inquisitor with his obsidian axe. He understands. This is the end. He firms his stance, meets Marsh's eyes. Then takes a last look at they sky. Only to see the Mists charging, he sees like an enormous angel of pure white, Vin. Hair streaming backwards, mist flaring like wings across the sky. reaching for him. 2:08- 2:40 The atium shadows return. His body jerks as his reserves increase by a hundredfold. Again he rises, and he charges towards Marsh. From Vin's eyes, the army continues to charge, as with Preservation's power she fuels them, giving them strength, power, hope. She flies above the army, her arms outstretched towards them as a parent embracing her children. Each soldier jerks upright, strength feeding them once more. They could run, but they do not. They look back at the pits, where their famlies lie, they look back to the Koloss, and once again they charge. The look on their faces now is not one of triumph, as it was in their first charge. The time for victory was past. This time, there is only a grim determination. The Koloss continue to overwhelm, but the soldiers do. not. yield. The last soldier uses his last bead of atium. Then they start dying. 2:40 - 3:12 Below, Marsh finally corners Elend. They duel, axes clanging on swords, two beings of incredible power using the full force of their allomancy. Elend dances between Marsh's brutal attacks, but even he cannot last forever against the augmented power of the Inquisitors Marsh grab's Elend's throat. The Koloss begin to enter the pits. The last soldier was dead. Three hundred soldiers had killed over twenty times their number, but in the end, the Koloss entered the pits. Yet Elend smiles. "We've won, Marsh." Above them, Ruin stand stock still. A koloss has entered the pits, and through his eyes he sees the empty pits. " Ruin's body is gone. That is why we win. " Ruin screams. Pain, disbelief and pure rage. Elend smiles. At the highest point of the chorus, Marsh's axe takes off Elend's head. 3:12 - 3:44 Vin floats, in pure shock. She sees Elend's body crumple slowly. It finally comes to a rest. She reaches incorporeal fingers to his head, seeing the peace now on it. Elend was that. she knew that. and there was nothing she could do. She finds that she is at peace, because she has let him go long ago. Ruin is laughing, thrashing. How do you like that? I killed him! I ruined everything you love! I took him away from you! She stands, gathering all of Preservation's power. Realizing finally Preservation's plan. She speaks quietly. "You just made one final mistake. You shouldn't have killed Elend. You see. He was the only reason I had left to live." Ruin pales. 3:44- 4:25 A titanic clash. Black clashes with White. Ruin screams. Vin shuts her eyes. Their essences clash, Ruin's black and Preservation's white burning each other away. Every moment is one of agony for Vin, and yet she is at peace. Grappling in a plane far above, the power and Intents of the Shards cancel each other out, and in an instant, Preservation and Ruin is no more. Below, a wave seems to pass through the world. The women, the children, moments from being slaughtered by Koloss, watch in fear as the Koloss suddenly lumber to a confused stop. Bereft of direction, of purpose, they begin to exit the pits. The women and children clutch each other, weeping with joy and sorrow. They had won, they were safe, but the cost had been bitter indeed. But they were safe. They were safe. 4:25- 4:51 Sazed emerges, and sees Vin and Ati smoking on the ground. he gasps, he sobs, he questions. Finally he understands. He takes the Shards, and recreates the world. The sun retreats. Constellations whirl into the sky. Green grass catches like wildfire across the earth, massive behemoths of trees sprout. Ashmounts sink into the ground. The ash dissolves like snow. The Mists disappear. Flowers flare their way across the earth. Colors flame across the land. The land is beautiful. 4:51 to end. The people emerge. They gasp at the whole new world. They rejoice. The sit down in shock. Spook wakes, fully healed. The rest of teh crew, Ham and the others, they lived. Spook looks around, and he sees the circle of flowers. At the centre of the flowers he found two people. VIn lay in her mistcloak, shirt and trousers, Elend lay in his white uniform, complete with cape. They held hands as they lay amidst the flowers. And they were both dead. He looks up, sees the yellow sun in the blue sky, he sees teh green grass and the beautiful flowers. His hand grasps Beldre's. And together they walk into this new world. Fade to black There is no victory without sacrifice.
  9. If you could be any character from the Mistborn series which would it be? Would you be one of the good characters? or would you chose to be one of the bad? Going forth on that theme if you could chose a character that that didn't have certain powers although you liked the attributes which power would you give them? Try to keep the post from giving away spoilers so those that are still reading the books can take part without having plots ruined for them. (ME INCLUDED AS I AM ONLY 1/3 THROUGH THE 3rd BOOK)
