Mistborn: Zane and 'God' (Here be spoilers!)
« on: January 23, 2011, 09:51:37 PM »
Never a more creepy passage have I read in a book:

"You know what's really funny about all of this?", God said. "You were never insane."

This, coming from the evil voice in the young kid's head who told him to kill EVERYBODY. Everyone except Vin.

"Well of course I didn't tell you to kill her."

I'm left scratching my head like O_o and anxiously continuing 'The Well of Ascension'.

Bwah ha ha ha ha!

Sorry, I felt like there needed to be some maniacal laughter to make this complete.

You can now resume your regularly scheduled head scratching. ;)

That bit reminds me of the phrase, "I know I'm sane, because the voices in my head tell me so."

Heh.  The explanation behind that is an interesting revelation when you get to it.

You know, as screwed up as it would be, you could make a few funny short stories out of Zane's mania.

maybe Zane would make a good Koloss warrior:

Zane walked through the camp and noticed a Koloss warrior stopping to strap his sword to his back.

"Kill him!", God screamed.

Why? What did he ever do to me?

"He's Koloss. Do you need a reason?"

Well, I suppose...

Zane Steelpushed a coin toward the base of the beast's skull, severing its spine. It collapsed to the ground and sputtered blood, quivering in the throes of death.

The other Koloss watched as Zane picked up the dead beast's sword and coin pouch.

Following the usual ritual, Zane offered explanation:

"The voice in my head told me to kill him."

That bit reminds me of the phrase, "I know I'm sane, because the voices in my head tell me so."

So sad that it turned out to be true though. LOL

Kinda-sorta.  I don't think it's a big spoiler to say that Zane was a couple of sandwiches short of a picnic with or without "God."

My former boss used to say that "it's ok to have a voice in your head as long as you don't answer back."  I'd always counter that if the voice asks a question it would be rude not to answer.  We eventually came to the compromise that it's ok to answer the voice in your head, but if a third party speaks up, get professional help. 

Of course this rule doesn't apply to writers. :)
