  1. Happy birthday Mr. Robot!

  2. Yeah, he SAYS it's not, but that's just him being coy and plot-twisty. And yeah, just a joke.
  3. The evidence is astounding. Hydrangea bloom and sepal colors are determined by the amount of aluminum ions in the soil. Bask in the knowledge that you, too, are now obviously a part of the same universe where You’re welcome.
  4. Gold so I can be trapped in regrets. Nah, lol! Iron for me. I’ve always wanted to be a Lurcher! Imagine the crazy swinging acrobatics you could do, or reloading a bow with your only arrow over and over, or walking on the ceiling by swapping metal lines and varying strength at the right moments. Basically Spider-Man.
  5. Heads up, I’m giving a spoiler warning here. You’ve been warned. Hey. Apparently atium alloys have temporal effects. That’s 16 minimum alloys to work with, and gold/atium//malatium is taken. Any ideas what the others could be? Here’s my thinking: We don’t know if an atium alloy necessarily resembles a plot twist of its alloyed metal, but I’m going to assume it does, for sake of guessing. Gold let’s you see your alternate path selves. Malatium let’s you see that for others. It’s a temporal effect. Check. Electrum let’s you see your own near future. Since atium alone already does the same but of others, what if Atium/electrum shows you your own recent past, perhaps a longer time period, like five minutes or an hour. Ghost racing, anybody? Pewter ups physicality. What if atium/pewter messed with your age appearance, much like feruchemy, but one-directional? Tin ups senses. What if atium/tin made you hear and see and feel things you heard and saw and felt yesterday at that same time? Bendalloy makes a time bubble around you to make you fly through time faster. What if atium/bendalloy caused the same effect except for you, only speeding up other things in range? Cadmium is the reverse of bendalloy. What if atium/cadmium only slowed down other things in range? Steel let’s you push metal. What if atium/steel let you age metal quickly? You could corrode it in seconds. Iron let’s you pull metal. What if atium/iron let you freeze the state of a metal object temporarily, preventing it from bending or corroding or changing shape at all?
  6. You have the possibility of getting a Resonance, assuming you can get one other power. Mistborn miss out on those, from what I understand.
  7. Don’t all things have investiture? Maybe I misunderstand, but I think it’s just the Spiritweb that allows someone to do weird things with it. The medallions, then, would be a way to modify your Spiritweb temporarily, like an adapter, so that you can use your investiture that way. Which actually sounds a lot like hemalurgy, without the drastic costs and side effects, I assume.
  8. But hypothetically no one else knows and you somehow, perhaps unexplainable even to yourself, know this to be true and it is. The how isn’t important for the sake of this exercise. I wouldn’t want to spike myself, assuming I understood what it did to my own spirit. If I wasn’t aware of that, I still don’t think I would be able to stomach the idea of spiking someone else, even if they deserved to die. I probably would tell someone close about it without the specifics, and I might start to search for other kinds of powers, whether they existed or not, trying to glean clues from whatever method I discovered hemalurgy. I guess it depends on how much I understood about how it worked.
  9. Hmm, I think I’m wrong about that though.
  10. On that point, what if every part or full noble is at least a misting, but there are so many possible types of alloys out there undiscovered, they will never know it? Wasn’t there mention of a bunch of atium alloys besides malatium?
  11. I wonder if hemalurgically granted allomancy/feruchemy can be passed on to descendants.
  12. Lol Sanderlanches is now the official term for awe-inspiring moments.
  13. The Stormfather has a rather monochromatic personality. Sure, by virtue of his importance in plot, he isn’t exactly boring, but he suffers from rebellious cognitive blinders. I can’t wait until he starts developing like Syl and gaining more human qualities. Imagine him questioning his purpose and start changing the directions of storms to protect people.
  14. From a mechanical point of view, this is really the core of it, isn’t it? It happens in cool scenes and through powerful characters we’ve grown attached to, but without this underlying expectation, nobody would bother to pore over maps and tiny details in book covers or the way characters say what they are saying and try to find any thing that reveals more of the big picture. He’s already given hints that there’s always another secret, and we keep finding little answers just to discover more questions which we know have clues somewhere out there, or soon will.
