Mistrunner

The Knights Awkward

943 posts in this topic

For the first time in many, many years, the midget stood up and walked away from his book. Trailing his beard along the floor behind him, he crossed to where the delivery guy had just vanished. Looking at the other Knights Awkward, he asked in his wavering voice, "Did everyone else hear that? Elantris, 25th anniversary edition. We need to create a trap in case he comes back."

"I wonder if its signed..." Summer sighed. "Let's get to this trap making!"

"Melvin?" Mistrunner mutters. "I know a Melvin... but... it couldn't be..." She makes a rapid decision. "We will attempt to collect this 25th anniversary edition for our Royal Archives!"

A somewhat rotund man steps into the hall of the Knights Awkward. Almost immediately he trips on the hem of his stained red robes, stumbling all the way across the room, muttering Scadrian curses the whole way.  He manages to catch himself right before falling on Mistrunner's lap and, looking at the floor so as not to meet anyone's eye, mumbles "Books before friends. 17th Shard before the real world. Um...Release dates before birthdays. I will...err...read all Brandon, even if it is not Cosmere."

 

He shuffles uncomfortably for a few seconds, then points to a dim area of wall bookshelf and mutters, "I'll be over there." He slips of to the dim place where there is just barely enough light to read, then pulls a copy of The Rithmatist out of one of his several voluminous pockets and begins rereading, eating snack foods out of one of the other pockets and occasionally uttering a Selish oath under his breath when a character does something stupid.

Echo looked up, mildly confused. What was all the chaos about? She shrugged and was about to go back to reading when she felt her book-senses tingle. She sniffed the air, then licked her finger and held it in the air. Can it... can it be? It is! The 25th anniversary edition of Elantris! She had to get it! She just about stood up, then reconsidered. "Everyone else seems to have this covered..." She muttered to herself. Then she sat down and continued reading. Suspiciously, she never seemed to get any further into it. That, or it was so big that it seemed as though she never got any further.

"Someone was supposed to say, "Not a library," Mistrunner grumbled. She carefully sets down her enormous book and prepares to search for the copy of Elantris.

A slip of paper wafted towards the floor with the chocolate shavings. Alongside a couple of Aons and what seemed to be a sketch of a cake was a short list or itinerary or something on one side.

Mistrunner looks up from her books distractedly. "Oh- person- hello," she says. "Um- yes. Of course. Speak ye the words and... yeah..." She disappears behind her stack again awkwardly.

Do you know which surges correspond to which orders?

Well, Oregon Breaking and Shipping correspond to the Oregon order, obviously. Shipping/Quipping to the Ship order. Quipping/Rereading to the Quipsmiths.

While I won't join, I really like the Alleywatcher order, any idea what kind of surges they might have? Maybe cookie giving and something else.

I believe that Qupiping is on that 3 times. Remember there are only two orders who share a Surge? And Theorydancers should probably be Speculating and Theorizing.

Why do we have Theorydancers and Theoryweavers? Aren't they essentially the same?

They have different Words. I think we should take out the Theorydancers and replace them with the Edgereaders.

Avoiding Social Life is only on there once, probably replaced by the third Quipping.

 

Or, instead of Edgereaders, what about Blurbreaders?

Okay. I will edit the 3rd Quipping to be Avoiding Social Life.

No, I've already claimed being an Edgereader.

Also, blurbreaders looks a bit like blur breaders, and though breaded chicken is all very tasty and good, it isn't quite our intent.

Also, it doesn't have part of an order name. Edgereaders is an "Awkward Edgedancer." What would a "Blur Breader" be? :P

One who breads blurbs. Makes them tastier, I suppose.

Revan Karrde did some random stuff and then magically was all like, "I'm too awkward to type normal things. I need a place to go where my awkwardness will be accepted." Then, he Randomly blurted out,

"BOOKS BEFORE FRIENDS

17TH SHARD BEFORE THE REAL WORLD

RELEASE DATES BEFORE BIRTHDAYS"
