Well, dang.
When to live is to die, and to die is to live, does either really matter?

I didn't, but given our current understanding of the Cosmere, that doesn't seem likely to be relevant.  Unless all Aons are named after people with shards, in which case the number of shards would simply be astronomical. (Lots of Aons y'know.)

Besides, Leras wouldn't fit as an Aon. They all end in vowels, I believe.

I would like to raise the question as to how Lerasium is formed?

I reread that scene not too long ago.  If you remember correctly it was on a round piece of pottery.  Would it then stand to reason that Preservation's power condenses itself on this clay and the forms at the center where it is drawn for some reason?

>>'  Just a random thought I had a while back.


The Lerasium nugget was in the clay disc, not on it. :) Vin had to break the disc.

hey did anyone catch in "the hope of elantris" that one of the aons mentioned was "Ati"?

I asked about this, but Peter says that there's no relation. ETA: Ati in Hope of Elantris was probably named before Ati in Mistborn, or Brandon just accidentally reused it.

They're also pronounced differently. The aon is pronounced "A tie." The ati in "atium" is "A tee."

I just thought that Ati might have been an elantrian...but oh well.

Maybe Sazed took it to give to Spook. After all, Ati had to spike Spook to give him pewter, so the powers of Ruin and Preservation can't just throw the ability to be Mistings/Mistborn anywhere they feel like it.

Ah, but the goal with Spook was to get a spike in him, not to give him pewter.  Ati/Ruin cared a lot more about having influence over Spook than about what powers Spook had.  Plus, that was Ruin, and Allomancy is Preservation's power.  Ruin being unable or unwilling to grant Allomancy directly has little bearing on whether Preservation can do it, and Sazed had both powers when he made Spook a mistborn.

Random stab of the missing lerasium, taking into consideration that RAFO literally means Read and Find Out.

Middle Mistborn series- Hero about to lose, best friend dying, so Sazed (as Shard) tells hero where Lerasium is. Hero either:
A. Burns it, making himself mistborn, or
B. Makes it into a spike (though I don't think there's enough to make a very big spike), thus killing his dying friend, and making himself powerful enough to defeat the killer Mistborn

</Crazy theory>

I have a question that probably only Peter can answer: What is the melting point of Lerasium? Aproximately?

Um, I have no reason to know that, if Brandon has even decided.

Does Brandon even have a plan on writing the second Mistborn books? Doesn't he have like seventeen books he wants to get done before he goes back to that?

That is correct. Also, he said he needs to wait for the right story to come together. He is interested about them, but does not want to simply capitalize on the Mistborn series.

Oh SNAP, I'm an Allomancer.

Wait- nix my crazy theory.
Sazed says in one of the headers that " I don't know why TLR left a bead. Maybe he was afraid he was going to run out of power, etc." Something like that.
