The Splintercast Reads Bands of Mourning, Episode 2: Chapters 1-3


Okay. Nothing’s going wrong. Okay? It’s the first chapter of this book. Everything can still go smooth! We don’t need conflict yet. We can have cutes. Alright? Brandon, I’m like, staring at you across the room. Don’t do this to me. Just give me a good, nice wedding.

And now in earnest, the book begins.

Y’all knew I was gonna get rekt over these opening chapters, right? Steris is my daughter and I love her and she deserves eternal happiness. Unfortunately for her, she’s in a novel written by Brandon Sanderson, which means everything has to go wrong. Of course.

In other news, Wayne drops immensely on my list of favorite characters and I also pretend that I know something about the cosmere only to figure out I was dead wrong. Ha. Another day in the life of Feather reading these books right?

Your righteous indignation at Wayne re: the wedding is priceless.

 

"sounds like those bands might cause some mourning"  *insert that meme of the CSI Miami guy*

 

lance of the fountains is probably the spear that killed Kelsier (as an analog to the Holy Lance/Spear of Destiny)

 

...wow that prediction...

 

(also these chapter have my favorite new word "anteverdant" ...I'm weird...)

I grin every time you mention the Steris Defence Club!

 

Is hilarious how you don't even buy into the happy beginning.

 

"THEY'RE SO CUTE YOU GUYS. I'M SO... I'M SO UPSET."

 

"SHE'S SO CUTE. STOP IT!" 

 

This is a rollercoaster.

 

"Brandon! What did I say!?!" hehe

 

"My daughter doesn't love herself, you guys! I'm really mad!" 

 

lol "Subcontinence" 

 

"Go write fanfic, Wayne, kay? Settle down. Chill."

 

"Ooh, he's got Breeze's hands?!? Eww!"

 

"Well, now we know what the Band's of Mourning are." hehe

 

Markarth really was messed up. I had to go back there one day after that sequence and had to kill all of the guards because they wouldn't stop.

 

Thanks for these :D

Ayyy you'll hear me mention the word "anteverdant" when it comes up later down the line. I apparently missed it in this chapter, which is lame because it is also my fave.

 

As for predictions, Bands is one of the few times that I actually managed to make some good predictions heyyy. I'm so pleased.

STERIS DESERVES THE ENTIRE WORLD I WILL FIGHT FOR HER.

 

And yep, oh god Markarth is the worst.

Wow.  I laughed harder at your reaction to finding out Wayne was behind the water tower collapse than I did at the scene itself.  I was on my way home at the time and I actually had to pull over out of the fast lane so I could slow down because I was laughing so hard!
