@Nathrangking Let's see.

1. Nothing

2. Scadrial Post-Ascension or Shinovar, including Urithiru access (I would never travel to the rest of Roshar)

3. An anime called Kimi No Nawa (Your Name), since it was the only movie I've watched that elicited a violent emotional reaction from me.

4.  Optimistically speaking, Cultivation.

5. Ryshadium

6. Dalinar Kholin, because god-like abilities and also, reading.

7. Coke.

8. Lasagna is great. Depending on how it's done, it could have just the perfect bite of bolognese and pasta.

9. Hesina, I would think. My mother seems pretty similar to her in attitude.

10. Depends on new books that I havent read and business. It could range from 1 to 4. And, of course, it depends on which books I'm reading and their quality- it took me about 3 months to force myself through SE's FoD (No hate to other Malazan fans out there, it just was a slog), but about a week to finish Oathbringer.

11. Well, I don't know what his specific method is, but I can't argue with the superb results.

12. Chuck Norris, in a heartbeat.



1. I'm kind of on the fence on this one. On one hand, dogs don't give you stares of death. On the other, they could chew up furniture. Not like it's relevant to me, seeing as how even if I wanted to I couldn't get a pet (I'm, unfortunately, allergic to their poo and dust).

2. Hardwood. Carpets are far too dusty for me.

3. They must have some level of survivalist instinct, but I don't believe it goes any further than that.

4. a ) Finish my novel plan and the first manuscript in the reasonable future.

    b ) Solve some of my school's issues in some form of capacity before abandoning it

    c ) (I hope that this comes true one day) Take Sanderson's BYU course on writing.

5. Nothing, probably.

6. I'd burn - just a little - some of the possessions of a teacher who I absolutely abhor at this point in time.

7. If I could fly, I'd use it for good, probably? D&D alignment seems to suggest I'm Lawful Good, so I don't know. I always think that I'm acting evilly, but that may just be a product of my Christian background and having higher moral expectations for myself.


1. Superhero, probably. (For reason, see my answer to Niteshado's 7)

2. Smooth-talking. Even though I'm not currently good at it, I feel it's the last thing needed to round out my "set" of abilities.

3. Dark meat. There's so much more variety.

4. Probably put myself in a situation where they wouldn't be able to reach me.

5. I'd make all rice white, regardless of it actually being black or red or brown rice. (I swear I'm not a racist, I just like the look of white rice more. Black and brown and red rice remind me all too much of being "healthy" and stuff.)

6. Fantasy. I can't seem to help falling into the trap of writing fantasy - I really should read around the block more and get more SFF into there.

7. Third. It seems so much more easy to handle. Despite First Person giving added emotional depth and connection with the character's narrative voice, I prefer to use Third in a pinch.

8. Yes.

9. Blue/Black/Red/Gold.

@Niteshado Well, I've tried running a D&D campaign with some classmates, without proper dice, or rulebooks, or most of the stuff necessary to run a D&D campaign. Therefore, I'll just say that I've never played D&D successfully, and due in part to my obsession with running the story - and thus being the DM - I have never had a character that I've played, let alone a favourite one.
