Mistrunner

The Knights Awkward

943 posts in this topic

Semi-on topic. New awkward thing happened. Signed up for the Sanderson elimination. Talked about it for an hour with my brother. Gets posted on the thread that the game had started last night, and they'd just forgotten to lock the thread. Ups. :wacko:

 

I think this means...... First Ideal Time! (insert random and embarrasing theme music here)

 

Books before friends/anything.

17th Shard before the real world/anything.

Release dates before birthdays/anything.

 

And then, just to cement my position: :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  Because hey, why not.

 

THE KNIGHTS AWKWARD WILL RISE AGAIN

Echo slipped in through the doorway and stopped in front of mistrunner. She looked down and muttered,  

"Books before friends

17th Shard before the real world

Release dates before birthdays"

She was very clearly uncomfortable in the middle of the room, and so she hastily finished and said, 

"I will read that which has not been read

I will stay silent amongst many words

I will enjoy without being upvoted."

Echo slunk into an unoccupied corner and sat down to wait, face burning. She had stumbled on the first couple of words. Fortunately, hardly anybody had noticed her in the first place, just like she wanted.

Mistrunner looks up from her book. "Oh- people- oh," she says, peering out from behind her glasses. "Um, welcome to the Knights Awkward. There's a lot of people here, aren't there..." she trails off and returns to hiding behind her book.

Well, I'd join up, but I'm not sure if I quite "fit" any of your orders. Still, good luck when the Repstorm cometh.

(I mean, I guess rep equals popularity, maybe?)

Summer looked at Quiver and quivered. "The Repstorm! That's like- people! Looking at you! Paying attention to you!" Summer blushed and ran to a room and started rereading Words of Radiance in earnest.

New state of awkwardness! (Man, I'm really climbing the corporate ladder fast, aren't I.)

 

When you're the only person older than 12 at a party, and you literally spend the entire time reading a book in the corner.

 

Second Oath time! (I have also decided I am a theoryweaver.)

 

I will speculate even if there is nothing to speculate upon (though considering this is Brandon Sandersons books we're talking about there's always something to speculate upon.)

As a Theorydancer, I speak the second oath.

* forgets oath*

Ha remembered!

I refuse to have a social life as long as Realmatuc Theory is undiscovered.

It seems that I found the place where I belong: I make a habit of lending my favourite books to my friends and acquaintances for them to discover ... and then I run to the library to buy another copy, just because I hate the idea of not having all of my books at hand in case I want to re(re)read them :unsure:

 

Books before friends.

May I be accepted amongst the Knights Awkward ?

Guys, we aren't swearing Ideals, we're swearing Shydeals, because we make deals with our spren that we're going to be shy.

*Sucks in Booklight and dissapears to use the Surge of Rereading*

Greetings new clan, I'm the Baron of Gunsmoke and champion of the Newcago realm as well as the best (surviving) doughnut maker in the 17th realms(excuse the grammer of those last two words). Nice to see an interesting and somewhat active new clan pop up, all the tiny half page clans bring me to wry chuckles whenever I notice them.

In one of the many corners of the icosikaiheptagon that made up the Knights Awkward hallway, a massive tome collapsed to the floor with an almighty thunk, sending waves of dust rippling out and causing people to cry out "Shshshsh, we're trying to read."

 

When the dust settled, there was a tiny figure. Apparently, he was trying to extract his beard from the pages of the book, but after a few minutes, it became clearer that his beard was actually used as his bookmark.

 

The book finally fell open, and his beard hung free. The wizened old midget with the crazy white hair and incomprehensibly long beard sat down and started reading.

He feels a poke in the back of his head.

"Excuse me, but is that an authentic beardmark? I'd heard of such things, but never thought to see one."

Also, a man in ragged robes rambles right by. He stops and says to beard man, "Wasing not of the wantings of." He then goes on his merry way.

Mistrunner sits up in her comfy throne. Her nerves are tense, on edge. At first glance, it appears to be made of books, but in reality it's simply covered by them. She, with a wave of her hand, accepts new members. As she glances about the room, she realizes something. Something is terribly wrong.

 

So, using her Surge of Bookreation, she covers every wall with bookshelves. Her work done, she settles back into her throne and reopens her copy of Words of Radiance.

Echo looks up from her well-read book and is astounded to find that all the walls are now bookcases, or rather, covered in bookcases. She grins at all the books and starts to get up, but then, realizing that she doesn't know if borrowing some is allowed, she sits back down and continues to read, ignoring everyone else.

After finally finishing his tenth reread of WoR Phoenix looked up from his corner and realized that all of the walls where now book cases filled with many different books.

 

"Yay more books I thought I might have to interact with people"  

 

Using the surge of bookfinding he gathered a stack of books that should last him through the night.

"Excuse me, but is that an authentic beardmark? I'd heard of such things, but never thought to see one."

 

"This?" The ancient midget lifted his beard in one hand. "This is a real beardmark, yes. It's taken me decades to grow it to this length. A razor has never touched my chin," he said proudly.

 

Also, a man in ragged robes rambles right by. He stops and says to beard man, "Wasing not of the wantings of." He then goes on his merry way.

 

"Wasing the way of the wanting," the bearded dwarf replied in his wavering voice. He then settled in to continue his umpteenth reread of the giant tome that was Way of Kings.

Mistrunner finishes her reread of WoR and summons a gigantic book easily as large as she is from one of the shelves.

Mistrunner grants Allomancy the power of a Knight Awkward and continues to refer to herself in the third person.

Summer continued to reread Way of Kings.

"Slontze." She muttered as she read. It was not sure whether she was talking to someone in real life or a character.

"Excuse me? Delivery for a Melvin?"

 

The intrusion was met with more than a few startled looks and indignant glares. A dark-haired man holding a small package stood poking at the dust where a doorbell ostensibly could have been, then looked up.

 

"Someone ordered a hardcover 25th anniversary edition of Warbreaker?"

 

There was a stunned silence. 

 

"Er... did I get the coordinates wrong again? I may have-" 

 

A variety of Selish curses slapped the stunned silence into submission. The stranger began fiddling with suspiciously glowing rings on his left hand. 

 

"Wrong tachyon vectors! Days and Nights, that was a stupid mistake. Stupid, stupid, stupid..."

 

Further mumbling was cut short the stranger's disappearance with a puff of chocolate shavings.
