So.. in my mind's spare time... I've come up with a theory for what the 4th book is about.

1)I think the Denali coven is going to be a part of this book because they want to destroy the 'pack' for what happened to Laurent.

2) I think that the chick from the Denali coven (what's her name?) is gonna become a 'threat' to Edward and Bella's happiness.

So what do you think?

I also think that the Volturi are gonna play a part (obviously) but I'm thinking these two things are gonna happen first.

 I sure hope that Edward and Bella get married first though, I can't stand stories where they are gonna get married then something happens then they aren't so sure anymore then another love interest shows up.... yada yada... that bugs me. Like in Pirates.

I'm having exploratory surgery tomorrow and I can't eat real food for the rest of the day.  Why do I love food so much?

my mom would like to know the same thing... she'd also like to know why sleep is so necessary.

I'd like to know why kids can't just go to sleep when they are supposed to, instead of tearing their rooms apart and making more work for mom.

Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

It's good so far, but I'm only on Chapter 3.

Okay, I can see him keeping a stash, not getting rid of it all. But I don't think its this massive cache that everyone is expecting, I still think it's been used elsewhere.

And the Inq.'s taking it with them? hmm, interesting idea.

You know what has made my fingers twitch towards the wallet? The School House Rock CD's. And I didn't see anything for the Bugs and Tweety Show (that's what it was called right?)

Apologize by One Republic

I really get out of the music loop sometimes, then I miss the good stuff and only come across it when my sister plays one of her cd's. This is a good song!

The Lord Ruler has had thousands of years to get lazy, he knows that the Mistborns are weaker, he doesn't anticipate any resistance, he makes this clear when he discusses how tired of all these 'attempts'. Or how he casually throws Marsh aside, and doesn't even bat an eye to check on whether he's still a threat, he's over confident.

We do not know that's why the Skaa in the conventicle were killed, that's purely speculation, for me as well as you. I agree they are being controlled, but I also think they know something.

My point about the writing was that the metals can be used in multiple ways for multiple purposes, so why can't atium?

The Lord Ruler was so powerful that I doubt he really concerned himself with other mistborn, look at how he tossed Vin around and she's  supposedly the most powerful mistborn there was (or is now) and she needed the mists to help her.

Plus IMO it's way more fun to have the atium all gone then to have everyone discover it and then fight over it.

Also, why would the Lord Ruler notice that Straff was hoarding Atium when he was reshipping it somewhere but not if he was using it? He would have noticed it either way or neither way.

I think it was a front, and that the Inquisitor's were in on it... the only flaw in my theory is that of Marsh, if it was used in some way that the inquisitor's were aware of (like CM said perhaps) then how come Marsh doesn't know? Or if he does why did he keep it from them? If the Inquisitor's were in on it, MAYBE he just hadn't learned that before everything went down the tubes...

Also, why are the Inquisitor's up destroying all of the Keeper's? What are they trying to hide? I think it's all tied together... maybe this just comes from reading to much, but I don't think author's leave holes in plots (multiple holes) without them intertwining, (obviously) in this case I think the Atium missing and the Inquisitor behavior is linked, I think they are trying to keep the truth hidden, whatever truth that is...

I mean, they killed all the skaa that had anything to do with them (in the Cantacle... or whatever it's called). Why? Maybe they knew something, like what the atium was being used for? And since the we know this is a world affected by metals on mulitple levels, including the writing etched on the walls that Sazed finds, why is it not plausible that atium has more than one use?

Just my thoughts... But, EUOL has a tendency to throw my preconceived idea's of how plots are supposed to run out the window. That's why I like his work so much.

Yes, but if he wasn't shipping it to Luthadel then don't you think Elend's family would have figured that out? Or at least had some hint of it?

I'm of the mind that he used it up on something. Like keeping the Deepness under control and since he died, he couldn't feed it any more atium and thereby it grew more powerful.... I don't know, maybe not, but I do think it's gone because he used it on something.

or you run first... or stab them with your knife or slit their throat. I think I wouldn't mind being an atium misting, if for any reason but that it'd let me live a little longer. I can imagine a thief would love to have that ability.

oh, so sweet. Congratulations! May your baby sleep through the night at 6 weeks!

I have a happy things of my own.... kinda.

I totally justified buying way to many new clothes today, because I'm going to England in less than a month. Which I think I mentioned before, and is not my happy thing, my happy thing is the new clothes and that I dropped a pant size! Woo Hoo! Hooray for me! Your looking at a 5'10" woman in a size 8 jean (well, really your not, but I'm back here)

I'm just comforted that you take time to work out the magic and it isn't just waiting at your finger tips.... I was getting a little worried. ;)

Your magic systems are worth sticking around in the fantasy genre for. I was starting to get sick of the 'usual' stuff when I ran across Elantris.

It makes me wonder if the inquisitor's haven't been experimenting. I mean *if* we go with the theory that they have to have one misting for each of the basic metal's to make themselves, then that would suggest that they knew about and searched for atium and other sorts of mistings....

who knows, I 'm excited for book 3, I hope some of this gets resolved!

lol. Yeah I can see that, when she popped in the "protecting Edwards virtue" part in Eclipse... I rolled my eyes. Now, I don't have a problem with that at all, but he's what, 100 years old, he's a killer, he's a wanderer, he's a ladies man and he's never had sex?! That just didn't fit for me, and Bella just glazes over it. I don't know, I thought that was a bit off. IMHO.

I'm still hung up on the Bella becoming a Vampire thing too, what's that gonna do to the relationship?

BUT I do really like the books. :)

Oh, thanks for moving that, I looked for a topic to stick it in, but couldn't find it....

I would have been happy with her loving Edward alone but it tears me up to see both of them loving her. So sad! I hope Jake finds someone to imprint so he can move on and everyone will be happy. ;)
