To pass the time: Buy/Sell
« on: August 26, 2008, 12:38:34 AM »
With Mistborn 3 seemingly forever from release, I thought it might be fun to play a little game of buy/sell. It has been played on countless forums so I am sure most have heard of the game, however for those that haven't the rules are as follows.

Each poster will quote and answer buy (agree) or sell (disagree) to a previous poster's statement, provide an explanation for their opinion and then posit their own statement. The more wild and out there the statement the better, which shouldn't be a problem with some on this board. Statements don't have to be something you believe true when you post them.

To keep things clean, please quote only the statement rather than the whole post.

Try to keep statements to a single sentence rather than a whole page.

Responding to someone else's explanation is frowned upon; respond instead to the same statement, providing your own explanation.

The thing I like about a game like this is it allows us to rehash old theories that we didn't want to rebump, discuss theories that we didn't feel deserved their own thread or theories that really don't fit anywhere else.

I will kick things off with a statement and then respond with a post showing the format. Please remember each post should contain a 'transaction', an explanation and a statement.

The Kandra have been taking action to help their prophecy progress.

Buy
As far as I know the contract only states that they can not be forced to kill, but that doesn’t appear to prevent them from killing on their own and infiltrating ‘human’ society to help them with their self destruction. They probably even gave Kelsier a helping hand in the first place.

Gemmel will make an appearance in MB3.

Brandon said that Gemmel was going to appear in a prequel, and he wasn't going to get into that in MB3, I think he has enough without going into Kelsier's past.

Buy. There's that one chick in the Preview chapter in the back of Final Empire. Although it might be kinda fun if she kills him or something.

Definately buy.  It all makes sense now.

I just don't see Brandon doing something like that; unless he kills off Elend but then Vin feels something moving when she burns tin. In a sequel, we'd find out it is actually Ruins.

The reason nobility cannot have children as frequently is because after 1,000 years, they are just a bunch of inbreds.

Ew....but, I'll buy it. Especially since the nobility  kill anyone who isn't noble that they've slept with.  There certainly isn't enough nobility out there to keep the gene surplus going for long!

Sell, but only after a lot of debating.  I don't see this series having the super sappy twist at the end.  (Plus, it's kind of common of a thing to do (sacrafice yourself to save the world) and all the endings are NOT common.)

Buy or Sell?
The second trilogy of mistborn books will be set up to reflect the song and dance styles of major musicals/writers.  The first being Roger's and Hammerstien, the second Andrew Lloyd Webber, and the third The Sherman Brothers.
"The custom of royalty in referring to oneself is to naturally employ the royal 'we'.  We are very happy, we are very sad, we are bored and suffer from ennui.  For a royal prince there's no such word as 'me', It's always 'we'.  So rightfully I should be two or three, don't you agree?"

Buy.  What could be a more perfect setting for a musical?  Stage ash falling from the sky, red light throughout (unless in MB3 Vin fixes the sun), ominous hooded Inquisitors ... and can you imagine the fight sequences?  The best ballet dancers could simulate Mistborn, perhaps with a little help from invisible wires and pulleys, and their Mistcloaks would flutter through the air.  Plus I really want to hear Dox's singing voice.  (Oh wait, he's dead, isn't he?)

Ruin the Kitten turns out to be lactose-intolerant and suffers a horrible reaction when he eats the cheese, which allows him to be imprisoned again.

Once again, Buy.  That's the only real explanation on why he want's to destroy the world.  And what else could be so cold hearted, cruel, and manipulative?

Linday Lohan WILL star in a Mistborn Movie.

Definately buy! Didn't you read the preview on April 1st. I'm 100% positive that not only will she star in it but it will be her breakthrough performance! How can you lose with a mist-mini skirt?

Sell.  There's already too much psychopathology going on with Zane.

Buy.  On the other hand, he can taste the flavors of the wine so perfectly that it's a huge struggle not to drink too much.
