I would like to post official notice that I will only be visiting a few select threads until I get my copy of MB3. So if I randomly stop replying, that's why.

I would also like to post official notice that I hate anyone who already has MB3. For the time being.

I would also like to point out that there are 3 days left. I'm trying very hard to not press the caps-lock key and express my excitement very loudly. I hope you are all proud of my self-discipline.

It would make a proud man cry, my dear man.

I would also like to post my official notice that I am very upset that all of the bookstores in my area insist on following the rules.  ALL of them have it in, and not one of them is willing to sell it before the 14th.  Curse their compliance with rules!

Please Shut-up.  It's only a matter of time before you give something away.  I'm saying this as kindly and respectfully as I can, and I do it out of concern for your life.  Say no more.
Fine.  Brandon gets to be Kelsier.  I'll take Spook then.  Lord Ruler knows, I'm good enough at talking nonsense to be him.

No, no replies because this is a theory topic. We cannot be plagued by those pesky things like "answers", lol. That's not how we operate around these parts!

/nod.  I think this is the last time I am visiting the forums until I'm done with MB3.  I'm finishing WoA again tonight.

You are lucky to have time to reread WoA. I only had time to read the very end once again. Accursed college work!

I finished my reread of WOA last week, and FE before that, so I think I'm all set.

I'll probably just reread the entire trilogy after Tuesday :P

So... my grand list of theories is 2/9ths done, at about 1500 words. This is going to be a massive post.

Furthermore, UtopiaGreen is back, but let's abstain from posting in that topic.

On the crew note, I've decided that Ookla either has to be the Mist Spirit, for his mysteriousness, or The Lord Ruler, for his sense of self worth and because he knows everything already.
Utopia can be Camon.  Noone likes Camon.

T-2 days! Holy crap!

Here's one of my final zany theories:

What if atium was a manifestation of Ruin or Preservation's power? What if the atium cache is the thing Ruin wants to gain to get full power?

...It's not exactly a developed theory, but hey, I'm tired. So I'm gonna go with that.
