"A" is for Atium.... *Contains Spoilers*
« on: October 24, 2008, 02:47:51 AM »
So, at work I was spelling out my company's name over the phone. (Hey, wait, the story gets interesting, I promise.) Anyhow, when I got to the letter "a" in "Pearson," instead of thinking "apple" I thought, "atium!" After laughing (silently) at myself for having mistborn-on-the-brain, I finished the call.

Then I figured what the heck--I'll make a Mistborn HOA alphabet. I tried to focus mostly on people, places, and things that factored most into HOA rather than the first two novels. Fun way to waste time, that's all I can say.

Now... I admit that I haven't re-read the book now that it's been pub'd. (I was privileged to read it in manuscript form as an "alpha reader"--or maybe I should say "atium reader"? ;) But I'm anxiously awaiting my signed copies. Yay!) My point is, if you know a better "fit" for some of these letters, go right ahead and post it.

******Caution: SPOILERS*****





The Mistborn HOA Alphabet
A is for Atium (or Alomancy/Allomancer or Allrianne)
B is for Beautiful Destroyer (or Bracers, Breeze, Beldre, Boxings, or Brasspush)
C is for Copper (or Church of the Survivor or Cett or the Contract)
D is for Duralumin (or the Deepness or Demoux)
E is for Elend Venture (or Electrum)
F is for Feruchemy (or Fellise or Fadex)
G is for Goradel (or Garrison, Gold or Geode)
H is for Hero of Ages (or Hemalurgy, Ham, "Human" the Koloss or Hazekillers)
I is for Inquisitor (or Iron)
J is for Judgement under the Kandra Contract
K is for Kelsiers Ghost (or Koloss, Kandra or Keeper)
L is for Lord Ruler (yeah, he's been dead since the first book, but his influence liveth on even after his passing)
M is for Marsh (or Mistfallen, Mistborn, Misting, or Morag City)
N is for Noorden (or the Northern Dominance or Nuggets of Pure Allomantic Metal)
O is for Obligator (or OreSeur)
P is for Preservation (or Pewter)
Q is for Quellion
R is for Ruin (or Reen or Rashek)
S is for Sazed, of course (or... Spook, Skaa, Steel, Silver, Snapping, or Shrain--oh, OK, right; not the last one)
T is for TenSoon (or Terris or Thug)
U is for Urteau
V is for Vin Venture (alliteration, sweet!)
W is for War (or Well of Ascension which is the whole reason why Elend could start kicking butt)
X is for the Xs that mark the spot on the LRs steel map (oh, gimme a break, X is hard!)
Y is for Yomen
Z is for Zane (or Zinc)

Wow, that's really impressive. (And I know what you're saying about spelling out things. I had to do that for my last job, and everyone would tease me for some of the things I'd use.)

You should do "a like in atium" and see how may people react to it.
"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?"

Nicely done Shrain :) That is totally awesome, and I agree with Rose, you should definitely do the "A as in atium" thing sometime and see who knows what the heck you mean ;)

what could have possibly given you that idea?
"I love you."
"you dont. You just think you do because i'm all you know."
"Really? So whats this burning sensation i'm having in my stomach?"
"Too much ale."
"Not love?"
"No. But i can see how you confused the two."
"I don't feel good."
"They do that to you."
"my legs, their numb."
"Hahaha!"
"haha!"

Thanks, guys. I feel especially cool now. 8)  And I might just have to try out my new alphabet on someone... ;)

*snort* Yeah, at least slightly so.

Yeah, nothing else came to mind. By the way, I think my favorite letter in this alphabet is "s". ;)

Bravo!
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

The above is what happens when my roomie and I read things out of the corners of our eyes while listening to television in the background.
