The Knights Awkward

(I don't know what happened, but I think I accidentally downvoted Brightness? Can someone fix it? Also, hail my new roleplay character: Summer, twin sister of Winter and friend of Cloud')

 

Summer walked into the halls of the Knights Awkward and bowed to Mistrunner. Her spren, a vine face wrapped around a pen, floated next to her. 

"I too ask permission to join. I have spoken the first and second ideal of the Edgereaders.

 

Books before friends. 17th Shard before the real world. Release dates before birthdays.

 

I will remember WOBs that have been forgotten.

Hhm... I am fairly sure that Granny Hoid would not mind if I joined.

 

(Bowing before Mistrunner)

May I Phoenix become a Knight Awkward? 

Books before friends.

17th Shard before the real world.

Release dates before birthdays.

Mistrunner nods regally.

 

"Your Words are accepted. The Knights Awkward have been refounded. Popularity shall be defeated."

"Greetings. I am Queen Elsa Steelheart, queen of the Newcago Court. Would the Knights Awkward be interested in an alliance?"

"I am Mistrunner. The Knights Awkward would like an alliance, as long as we don't have to attend any meetings. We have books to read, as you know."

"My sister might also be interested in an alliance." Summer frowned. "She thinks I don't spend enough time reading practical things, like battle textbooks. So I'm not sure about it."

"If I remember correctly, she is the leader of the Pack of the Cosmere. The Knights Awkward accept the alliance, as we are a new and rather small guild that would rather not be ripped apart by wolves."

I have a question, do any of you fellow Knights Awkward wear aluminum foil hats and when your friends ask you if you are a government conspirator you say, "No, I am protecting myself from emotional allomancy"?

"Of course. But I can't find any pure aluminum, all of it's not pure enough!" Summer complained.

The door opens, and a green-eyed youth strolls in.

"Books before friends. 17th Shard before the real world. Release dates before birthdays.

I will make fun of the unmakefunable. May I enlist in the orders of Awkwardness to better pursue the refining waters of annoyance?"

To further show my allegiance to the Knights Awkward I shall say the words of my order (I have an electronic, soft cover, and hardcover of almost all of Brandon's books)

I will convert those who are not

I will convince those without to buy two copies

I will loan my extras to anyone without

Mistrunner replies, "You may join, as long as you keep your annoying jokes away from those of us reading. However, I doubt that will deter you Quipsmiths."

As a Knight Awkward do I have any special awkward surges?

The Surge of Conversion and Reclussion, perhaps.

Conversion: The surge of converting.  Makes others more willing to listen to the speaker

Relcussion: The surge of relcuting.  Turns the user invisible (for reading purposes of course)

The Surge of staying up until 3:00 AM reading Sanderson novels.

The Surge of reading in general.

The Surge of Theorizing.

... and many more we do not know of yet.

The door to the hall opened with a nearly silent squeak, and Kipper slipped in. On stealthy feet, he edged his way along the wall. He gasped in amazement, as he saw...

To be continued on Sunday...

Edit: Well, you have to say the first oath.

Voidus entered the new guildhall, carefully he examined his options.

Feeling too stifled by any one order, he cloned himself twice then spiked the orders of Oregonbreakers and Theoryweavers out of his clones.

"As may have been obvious, I am an Alleywatcher, and now something more. I shall be more awkward by far than has ever been imagined! I shall stay up til 6am and sleep during hours I should be studying so that I may consume more of the glorious cosmere, I shall forgo all friendship excepting those forged on the forums I shall be very very awkward!!!!"

Voidus paused briefly, his new spikes leaking blood over his clothes.

"So um.... can I join?"

The door slammed open, to many whispered cries of "Shshshshsh!" In shuffled a... book? It was a huge tome, covered in dust, but bearing an image of a spear wielding Radiant on the front. As the book shuffled towards Mistrunner's throne (comfortable reading chair), it became more obvious that there were stubby little fingers holding onto the book.

 

When it stopped in front of Mistrunner, the book lowered itself to the floor, and a pair of thick, heavy, spectacles appeared from behind it, attached to a small head sprouting mad white hair in many directions. The head disappeared behind the book, and an arm came our from behind the left side, disappearing again as the head reappeared. Did whatever that was just bow? It was impossible to tell when he was behind the book.

 

A wavering voice spoke from behind the book. "I am Bortholemew the Blind, and I am here to join the Knights Awkward, if you will have me.  I am a Forumlurker, and I have spoken the first two oaths. Books before friends. 17th Shard before the real world. Release dates before birthdays. I will read that which has not been read."
