I've long given up caring whether I'm pronouncing fake Fantasy words and names "correctly", for the sake of my sanity.

Fantasy isn't about your sanity. It's about your lack of sanity. If we were all perfectly sane, do you think we could believe in some of these outragous (all be it, amazing) worlds? Me no thinkie so.

Actually believing in these worlds would indeed be a sign of mental instability. Suspension of disbelief != belief.

Yup, it's with an A. Brandon probably just spelled it wrong initially in the MB3 spoiler thread. Remember how confused we were with laras/leras? :P

(This is the guy who spelled "Ascension" wrong. Frequently. Haha)

!= belief.

Nerd! xD


You might be a nerd IF: you consider "!=" to be a universally recognized symbol for "not equal to". (I seriously do. I even write it in mathematical proofs, then have to erase and write "≠" instead.)

I seriously though,
if(suspension != disbelief){
     mentalState = insanity;
    }
haha.

You might be a nerd if: You understood that.

I, unfortunately... did.

Wait...someone DOESN'T understand?!  What are they doing here?

I once had a room party at a convention called: Sushi != Raw Fish.  It may have helped that it was a Linux/Sci-Fi convention (so everyone there was fairly nifty).

We are sufficiently off topic, but I must say that I REALLY want one of those "Linus is my homeboy" t-shirts. xD

My biggest problem with reading Fantasy novels is when I discuss them with other people in person. I'm always a bit hesitant to name the characters because it's strange to hear others pronounce them completely differently than you do.

Anyway, I say "Kell-sea-er", mostly because it sounds cool. At least we won't have much argument over the pronunciation of "Vin". I haven't a clue how to pronounce "Sazed", though. I usually think "Sah-zed".

I said it that way too, til I realized his nickname was "Saze" and realized it was "Say-zd"

Yeah, but by the time I noticed that, I'd decided that Sah-zed was the only cool way to say it.

Thanks! I read the Mistborn trilogy over the summer. Since then I've been busy reading The Wheel of Time, but I've found myself missing Mistborn, wishing there were more to that world and those characters, so I decided the next best thing would be to check what other books Brandon Sanderson has written, and that led me to the site.
