Thanks a lot! ^_^

I  don't usually picture him with a beard either... but I think I remember reading that he had one.  Maybe... lol. ^^

I just finished this drawing of Spook today.  ^_^  
I have a Kelsier I did months ago and never colored... maybe I'll get around to posting him at some point.

He's a bit stiff and his head's too big... o.O;;  But I'll live.

This only makes waiting harder >.<;
So, of course, I loved it!  ^__^ 

I don't think a feruchemist is required to make Inquisitors.  It would just be... bad planning I guess.  The Lord Ruler spent a great deal of effort to (unsuccessfully) breed feruchemy out of the Terrismen, so it wouldn't make sense to require it for his most powerful servants.  It would make them completely irreplaceable (if his plans worked).  And since they have a weakness and can be killed (even if it is really hard and unlikely), he'd eventually run out.

Books / Re: What are you reading, part 3

I'm, er, in the middle of two books, actually. 
The Running Man by Stephen King, which is just amazing.  ^^  I'm not very far, but I really like it.  I only recently started reading Stephen King, and I've been grabbing whatever of his books I can.  I wish I'd started sooner.   ;D
The other is Twilight by Stephanie Meyer.   I really don't like it nearly as much as The Running Man.  But still... I discovered a strange little completely hopeless romantic hiding inside me that squeals rather loudly as I read.

Technically I've got a thesaurus (or, rather, the interweb).  That's how I found inamorata.  ^_^;;

I can always find more though.  What kind of words would you want?

Movies and TV / Re: Wall-E

I guess I'm here to say I agree. ^^;

I loved the movie, and had a great time watching it.  It was funny and sad and cute and all those things a great Pixar movies should be.  And I loved the little 16-bit (is it 16... I feel like a n00b...) characters during the credits!  We stayed and watched them all.

I agree that the humans were weird.  It took me out of the movie every time I saw a human character because they were shown in two different ways.   I just sat there and wondered "why are they different?" as the movie went on without me.  o.O; 

But yeah, it was awesome.

thank you guys!

lol, Soryn, that was awesome.

And I really like Vin's skirt, Mr.Wednesday.  It's very graceful.  :)

I considered seeing this movie when I heard McAvoy was in it... but I really don't want to put myself through something that bad. 
Maybe you could just replace the movie with a read through of your review?  I'm sure only a few people would be disappointed.   ;)   It at least was well written.

Mistborn is my favorite, for sheer awesome-ness. 

Though it's closely followed by Warbreaker.

You've probably already got this figured out, but just in case you're still taking suggestions:

They could call her "Inamorata." 

It means a woman who loves or is loved.  And since its not the sort of word you heard a lot, most people won't have any preconceptions about it.  Most probably won't even know what it means.  (I sure didn't) ^^;

Movies and TV / Re: review: The Incredible Hulk
« on: June 23, 2008, 09:47:57 AM »
I really enjoyed this movie. 

That said, I actually have never seen anything else with the Hulk except for Marvel Zombies.  I knew he was big, green, and smashed things, but I think that was enough.

I thought the movie was funny, entertaining, and interesting.  And I would recommend it.  It wasn't as good as Iron Man, but it was still worth my time and money.

I made a drawing of Vin ^^
It's pretty big, so I'll just leave a link.

Brandon Sanderson / Re: Mistborn 3 Plot Points *Spoilers*

I got the feeling that there was no winning with the Well. 
Vin was definitely not supposed to release it, because it turns out to be Ruin.  But if she had used it, she could easily have turned out as another Lord Ruler.
Maybe she really did have to release it in order to subsequently defeat it in the final book, otherwise the world would have simply been reformed by "heroes" for all the rest of eternity.

I think Vin=Hero of Ages is just a little too... cliche?  I mean, these books are supposed to be about "What if the hero of prophecy  failed?"  Somehow, I think there shouldn't even be a Hero of Ages, just someone strong and dedicated enough to face the big bad and save the world.  The title implies I'm wrong though...

Sorry if someone has already said this... I just got here under an hour ago, and I don't have time to read everything on the forum. Not yet anyway. ;D

Brandon Sanderson / Re: Lightsong (Blog Post Reference)
« on: June 20, 2008, 09:41:23 PM »
I know everyone else said this already, but I loved Lightsong.  He is by far my favorite character in Warbreaker, and I always looked forward to his sections of the book.  I thought he was hilarious, and if one of his jokes weren't great, the other character's reaction to it was.  If that means my sense of humor is lacking, then I'll accept that and join Lightsong's lame joke club. ;D  I think the balance between humor and seriousness is great, because honestly, some people can seem cheerful and funny even when they're seriously conflicted.  It's one way to deal with it, and I think it really works  for his character.  I wouldn't change it, but that's your choice, isn't it.  ;)

Brandon Sanderson / Re: Brandon To Write Wheel of Time Book 12
« on: June 20, 2008, 09:23:18 PM »
I didn't know what to think when I found out some random guy I'd never heard  of was writing AMoL, so I forgot about it.  Yes, I forgot who was doing it and never bothered to find out again.  Months later, I found Brandon Sanderson's website by accident, searching for some random bit of WoT info.  Then I finally decided I should check this guy out, see if there is hope for Wot yet.

I read his responses to each book from his WoT read through, continued on to his other blog posts, and somehow became a fan.  I downloaded Warbreaker.   I also made three separate trips to Hastings to buy Elantris, and both books of Mistborn (they were hard to find!).  I've even listened to all of the Writing Excuses podcasts.  I guess this means I'm sold. ;D 

The only problem here is that I've been getting to sleep later and later because I just can't stop reading, and now I've run out of Mistborn.  Oh well, at least Elend didn't die.  :)

Anyway, I'm excited Brandon (can I call him by his first name? o.O; ) is finishing Wot.  I know we'd all rather RJ was still around to do it himself, but I think we have a pretty good second.
