  1. I've recently been kinda obsessed with this manga called Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle. Starts out as just a running gag that the princess is willing to do anything to get good sleep while waiting for the hero to rescue her, but over time turns into a compelling story with real story arcs, a loveable cast of characters, and even a slow burn romance. I can't recommend it enough ugh

  2. Basically, I think that while we have piles of Stormlight/Cosmere memes here at the 17th Shard, there are not nearly enough tiktoks. I’m here to rectify that.


    Here’s my first one, I’ll add to it as I go along. If anyone else wants to add, feel free! (also I’m trying my best to censor language for the community guidelines, bear with me.)

  3. Hey so I'm doing an english project where we got to choose our books and I chose The Way of Kings because obviously, but as part of the assignment we have to analyze the literary themes, symbolism, tone/mood and imagery of the book. And I'm having a really hard time coming up with examples of symbolism that are in the book.

    So if you guys can think of any literary symbolism you've noticed (and if you have something to say about the themes and imagery that would be pretty cool too) and tell me about it because I'm severely lacking in that department, please do.

    Sounds interesting.  I admit that I wouldn't mind a sketch of some of my Sanderson Elimination characters.  Let's start with an early version of Ratel and see how it goes. 

    Hair color, length, and style
    Black starting to go grey.  Just past shoulder length.  Wild and unkempt.

    Eye color and shape
    Left eye is milky white (He's blind in that eye)  Other is grey.

    Skin color (this includes any moles, freckles, or birthmarks they may have)
    Light tan.  Slightly leathery due to spending a great deal out in the sun otherwise nothing remarkable.

    Body type 
    Human. :P  Approx 6 feet tall and 48 years old.  Fit and muscled due to years of physical labor.  Not much meat on his bones due to lack of ample food.  He lives mostly off what he catches in the wild.

    Outfit (if you have reference photos, that's even better)
    Trapper/Old style Gold miner/Prospector 1850 style

    Other assorted oddities (horns, wings, robotic arms, extra eyes, etc.)

    Loner and happy not to talk to others.

    None really.  Spend most of his time either trapping or mining.

    Short rundown of their backstory
    A member of the Jeskeri Mysteries since he was a child.  He left the order for a while when gold was discovered in the hills near Duladel.

    Sorry this took twice as long as it was supposed to. My computer decided it would be a good idea to crash when I was halfway finished.:rolleyes:



    It was really fun to draw someone older for once. ^_^ Especially since you don't have to worry about making them attractive,

  5. I did one of these a while back, but it died. And because I want to get better used to drawing digitally and am feeling rather uninspired at the moment, here we are.
    You can submit your OCs below and I will try to get to all of them, however I might not have time to draw all of them, depending how many people submit. This is on a first come, first serve basis. If you did submit your OC last time I did this, you can submit the same one again. I've gotten a lot better in the past year.

    In your description, please include the following:

    • Hair color, length, and style
    • Eye color and shape
    • Skin color (this includes any moles, freckles, or birthmarks they may have)
    • Body type 
    • Outfit (if you have reference photos, that's even better :ph34r:)
    • Other assorted oddities (horns, wings, robotic arms, extra eyes, etc.)
    • Personality
    • Interests
    • Short rundown of their backstory

    If there's any other important information about the character, include that too. Reference photos of any kind are encouraged.

    I can draw the character in three ways: as a bust with multiple expressions, as a full body with a dynamic pose, or as a close up + a full body sketch. You can specify which of these you would prefer, however, it really depends if I'm more excited about their design or their personality. I'd also prefer you don't request any specific poses. I'd like to choose my own based on their personality/backstory.

    I look forward to drawing your characters!

  6. Woah resurrection sort of. 

    Anywayses, I need some advice. There’s this guy at school who I have a crush on, but I know for a definitive fact he is not interested. There’s this other girl and they’re not officially dating yet but they have confirmed feelings and are basically just waiting for winter break. 

    So, yeah, I definitely want to get over him but the thing is I genuinely enjoy talking with him and stuff just as a friend. Anyone know how to stop feeling romantic attraction for someone without completely severing a friendship?

    Nope. Give me a break, I had a busy year. Too many costumes to make, and amigurumi to make for convention Guests of Honor! Not to mention actually needing to read some of said GoHs books so that I had a halfway decent idea of what they were about.

    WoR was rather a lot of book. I needed a solid block of time to dig through it.

    *gasp* Sacrilege! WoR came out 3 years ago!

    Is this thing being shown on popular news channels (esp. conservative ones like Fox) ? 

    Because, I have a friend who (unfortunately) thinks Breitbart and The Rebel are valid news sources. For some time, she didn't even consider net neutrality to be worth consideration. I told her that if TV news doesn't cover it, then you've USA Today, NY Times, reporting about it. But she is against those, and questioned their validity. I said, that reddit is all over it today, but she says that reddit is extremely liberal (I agree with that one, except that extremely part ) My point is this:

    Is there any way for me to maker her understand the importance of this issue ?

    P.S. I am not an American, so I am ignorant about how an average american feels about these issues.

    Send her this Vihart video:



    She does an awesome job of explaining why net neutrality matters. (Also, I'm freaking out Vihart posted. This is like, a once a year occurence)

    Ok about pictures; I don't want anything open to the whole Interwebz to see. I'm going to start a message thread with a couple pics if I can work out how to do that; message me or comment if you want in. And obviously, I'm trusting you not to share these around. 

    I'd like to see pics!

    Especially since a flight to Jerusalem sounds like money I don't have . . .

    @Pinnacle-Ferring AND I ARE ENGAGED!!!!!!!

    Basically we've known for a while that we wanted to do this. We went a couple days ago and picked out a ring (with a sapphire because Ravenclaw colours. Its really pretty!). 

    So we met up in the morning and bought the ring. Then we went to see Wonder Woman (it was amazing too). So we were having a discussion about proposing over post-movie  lunch but I wanted to wear the ring already and we decided ok, lunch. So while we're walking to the cinema I get an important phone call. I put the phone down and realised he looked really nervous, so I was like, ok, he's decided to propose now.

    So he says "Wasing the you in the giving of the me all of the happies and fuzzies. Ising the wanting of spending the life of the me with the you. Willing of the you of the marrying of the me?" and pulled out a white handkerchief. (Took me a minute to get the Spook reference. I have failed you all :P)

    And then I said to him "Will you be my Right Hand Man?"

    And he gave me the ring.

    And we walked off grinning to go see Wonder Woman because #nerdlove.
