Mistborn and LOST *SPOILERS for BOTH*
« on: May 24, 2010, 08:45:45 PM »
Has anyone else noticed how remarkably similar LOST is to the Mistborn Trilogy. In the end, at least.

In Mistborn: At the end of the first book, the Lord Ruler dies, who has been protecting the world from Ruin, who is set free, and the characters finally see the real threat.
In Lost: At the end of Season Five, Jacob is killed, and the characters realize that the smoke monster is the big threat.

In Mistborn: Vin, after absorbing the mists, basically becomes Preservation, but nearly messes everything up. And then she dies fighting Ruin.
In LOST: Jack takes over for Jacob, but nearly destroys the island after he has Desmond pull the plug thing. And then he dies from a wound made by smoke monster Locke.

In Mistborn: Sazed takes the place of both Ruin and Preservation, and does everything right cuz he knows how.
In LOST: Hurley takes over for Jack, and it is suggested that he is going to do everything right, even where Jacob couldn't (just as the Lord Ruler couldn't really do it right).

Anyhow, that's what I've got. JJ Abrams copied Brandon.
