  1. Narrating characters, so no Nightblood or Denth votes! (Also Nightblood would totally win) Mine goes to Vivenna. I loved her heel faced turn. Siri had a strong beginning, but stuff stopped happening in her chapters. Lightsong actively tried to make sure stuff didn't happen in his chapters, which was kind of fun, but I found myself skipping his chapters upon rereads. Vasher was fascinating and grumpy but I don't think we saw enough from his point-of-view to really feel as close to him as we did with the other three.
  2. What makes Brandon's funny characters and humor work for me even when they aren't that funny:
  3. So while rereading Warbreaker I discovered something I missed in my first read through. I think it's a pun that can only be caught if one has some knowledge of how the Nalthis magic system works. On page 79 chapter 7 of Warbreaker UK edition the following conversation takes place: Now perhaps I am missing something here but from my reading of the scene Lightsongs pun makes very little sense. It doesn't really make any sense as his usage of infested lacks another word that makes the pun works in a way. During my reread however I realised that the pun does actually work in another way. I think Lightsong is talking about investure in the scene and commenting on how he as a returned is invested. Vasher explains as much on pg 508 Chapter 46 Warbreaker UK edition. He explains how Returned are the only kind of naturally occuring Biochromatic entities and that they come into existence invested like humans. WoBs also mention how they are full on investure such as here, here, here and here amounst others. So we do know this pun would work like that except is it reasonable to presume Lightsong would be aware of this? As explained above here Nalthis does have a pretty good idea about all this. As a result and considering how Lightsong has access to these scholars it may explain how Lightsong would at least have an awareness of this. Or perhaps I just missed the original pun and somehow made up a pile of nonsense about an alternative pun. Who knows?
  4. Upon first reading Warbreaker , Did you at first assume Lightsong was a detective or constable in his precious life . The way he was curious about who broke into mercy star temple and investigated about what was going on with the lifeless commands. Yes I have finished the book . Yes I know what his occupation was , I was just wondering how many got that impression from the book .
  5. From the album Warbreaker Trading Cards

    I weep for my husband :'(
  6. Hey so I noticed in the postscript of Secret History that Brandon mentions that each of his series' has a major viewpoint character death, but I can only think of: has there been a TSA/Era 2 major character death that I've somehow missed? Any other thoughts as to whether he was speaking preemptively? Thanks in advance
  7. Originally a piece for tumblr palette challenge. Finally did some art for Warbreaker! + + + Alternative version: Sketch: + + + Another Lightsong (Disney style? I don't know ;P) Another challenge for Vasher: Old art: Vasher/Vivenna, Susebron/Siri
  8. Llarimar refuses to tell Lightsong how he died several times throughout the novel. This seems to be common practice among the priests. When Llarimar finally does tell Lightsong, there aren't any repercussions. So why do the priests withhold this valuable information as it might help the returned remember their purpose? The only answer I can see is to provide suspense. For obvious reasons I'm not satisfied with that answer especially considering that it's Sanderson we're talking about.
  9. A little story I made up off of one of Lightsong's jokes.
  10. You know how at the end of Lightsong's life he got his memories back? What if Hoid was a Returned who has his memories? He could survive off of extra Breath the way Vasher did. His purpose could be to put Adolnasium back together again. That could explain why he seems to be oddly prophetic in his ramblings.
  11. A conversation I definitely want to see happen... Jasnah, Lightsong, Shallan and Wit. I know now it will never happen, poor Lightsong, but still, Jasnah Shallan and Wit, maybe throw in a Navani and we'd have the single funniest dialogue in all of Sandersonian History. Cultivation would laugh so hard, she'd pass a kidney stone and the Everstorm would come.
