hey i still don't think Kelsier needed to die  :D
But Vin would not have grown if he hadn't.  She wouldn't have pushed so hard and remained too phlegmatic.

I think I'll be sadder if he kills of Sazed than I was when he killed Kelsier, tbh. And unfortunately, Sazed's death could also serve sort of the same push Vin needs for something.  :(

Yes, it would be very sad.  I think I would cry. :'(

OK, after reading Brandon's newest annotation, I'm pretty sure the mist spirit is very connected to either Ruin or Preservation.  Brandon makes a note that the Spirit's Bronze pulses are the same as the pulses of the well.  Well, if the pulses of the well are from Ruin (assuming that only those with hemalurgy can hear them), then what is the Mist Spirit.  As of yet, we have heard no deepness pulses, so is the Mist Spirit more than just Preservation's mist servant?
Rereading Well of Acension also got me thinking.  You know the part with Sazed's Lock and Key speech?  Well, what if this also applies here.  For example, the deepness, and the well seem like opposites at first, they oppose eachother, until we find out the the deepness was really jsut a means of making the world desperate enough to release Ruin from the well: lock and Key.  What if there is something similar going on with the Msit spirit and Preservation, or even Preservation and Ruin?

Interesting. I could see the Deepness being a catalyst used to cause Ruins release. I mean even if TLR didnt repel the mist entierly he had saved the world from Ruin for the most part. Very interesting.
