Yeah, well, I am six foot seven and 240 pounds.

Edit:  Sorry, thought we were fighting over biggest fan.  My bad.

Wow, you guys are awesome.  I live about an hour from BYU and can't match half of these.  Heck, I don't even own any of Brandon's books, being the poor teenager that I am. *is shamed*
When to live is to die, and to die is to live, does either really matter?

Mistborn Llama Story?! Do tell! ;D

If I told you, I'd have to kill you.


Tell, regardless. This is how I'm proving my Super-fanness. ;)

While many of you make a great case, I will not cast my vote for the ultimate Superfan until I see a copy of the No Contact Order Brandon had to take out against you.  That's when you know you made it, baby.  ;) ;) ;)
I wanted to write something profound here, but I couldn't think of anything.

1. I live in Canada, so all visitation credits are nix when in comparison with me.

Quote
I was the first person (on this forum at least) to theorize figure out that Vin's earring was a spike.
2.  But I am the one who discovered the passages saying Alendi had the piercing of the hero, and who kept harping on the metal lake until someone listened.

3.  I bought Elantris on a whim soon after it came out, and have since then ordered every single book to be delivered on it's date of publication.

4.  Easy one, but the Way of Kings cover is my desktop background.

5.  I once wrote an email with a creative enough intro that was actually only about when the book came out in Canada that brandon sent me the first two chapters of mistborn: well of ascension before he published them online.

6. I've gotten numerous people to read his books, including people who don't like to read period, who don't read fantasy, I even got my Dad (who only reads political or theological books) to read Elantris, and he used it in either a sermon or a sunday school lesson, I forget which.

7.  Every person who I know who has read the books (except maybe one, but that's debateable), read them because of me, and read at least the first book on one of my copies.

8.  I don't lend out my book jackets because they are so precious to me.

9.  I'm considering (Haven't done it yet) reading wheel of time solely because brandon is nuts about them and is finishing the series.

10.  I check his blog every day. (Or almost)

11.  I bring his books up in any conversation that is even remotely pertinent

Not as impressive as some others, but still I'd say I'm at least in the running (remember meetings and signing are nix when compared to me until Brandon does a Canadian tour!)

Alright, I might as well put in my fan-quirks here...

1.  Everybody who knows me knows about Mistborn, because I obsess about it often.

2. I've actually said, "Brandon Sanderson is MY Hero Of Ages."

3.  Also, "He's the Kelsier to my Vin/Obi Wan to my Luke!"

4.  I've had Mistborn shoes commissioned for me.

5. I really want the Allomantic symbol jewellry.  Or an Aon pendant.

6. I am an avid student of Writing Excuses.

7. I'm afraid to try drawing his characters, because I might ruin them.

8. I have, however, done both Elantris and Mistborn fanfiction.

Those are my top reasons...  I'm sure I have a few more, minor quirks, but these are the worst ones I could think of...

You so have to post pics of your shoes!
"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?"

Last week in honor of Brandon's 5th year of being published and as a gift to him I personally gave him over 100 new readers/fans in just over a 24 hour period.  Yes that isn't a typo, over one hundred.  That's just people that I'm aware of who are now or will shortly be starting one of his books for the first time directly because of me and my influence.  Who knows how many it will be once they enjoy it and share it.

That is some ultimate fandom. You're insane, Phaz.
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!

Yeah; did you have to bludgeon them over the head to read it?

Kidding, of course, I guess my friends aren't as hard-wired for these kind of books like I am...

I think this is the first quantifiable category of ultimate fandom. Hands down, you have won on that count. Not even Miyabi can question it :P
