Brandon's chat room
« on: July 12, 2010, 04:07:35 PM »
So Brandon had a chat room last night, and Dragonmount.com was kind enough to copy it all.
Here it is for anyone interested:

Brandon and Christopher Paolini on one panel?  *drool*
When to live is to die, and to die is to live, does either really matter?

Wolfstar is a hero among men. Truly! My former theater director had to do an adaptation of Eragon for the stage once. It...did not work. at all. Mostly because their objective is revealed futile halfway through and its a lot of wandering around. Deeply saddening to audiences.

Anyways. I'm wishing I'd been able to make it to that.

Oh... this can't be good.. you do realize that such a vast difference in creative talent, originality, and pure writing ability brought within such a close proximity could very well rip a hole in the fabric of reality, right?

If only the ostrich incident had happened in reality, and not the twisted world within which I live...

Like it or not, Paolini has sold more books. So there are a large number of Paolini fans who will go to the panel...and get to hear Brandon and Patrick be awesome.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Well, that's where we come in, right? The mob of devoted fans, dedicated to spreading the word of Sandersonism to the (insert number) corners of the earth?

In fact, I issue a challenge! Everybody hold on a second while I make a thread for my challenge.

I'm just thanking the Forgotten Gods that Stephanie Meyer isn't included with her glampires.  If that signing were being held in my backyard, even with Brandon there, I would not attend.

That's why I'm saying after we take down Paolini, Meyers is next to go. THEY WILL FEEL OUR WRATH.

You guys can be real snobs sometimes.

Now here is where I guess I've got to come in and tell you why I can't take Paolini's work seriously. Its not an issue of snobbiness, I just read that first book and it made me very very sad. I was seeing bits and pieces of cliched plots that had been done before put together in what was honestly kind of a haphazard manner. I mean, from the whole "My uncle who raised me is dead I must quest for understanding, also run for my life" thing was a little Luke Skywalker meets...well everyone else. And the fact that the magical mystical [noun] him and Old Man Mentorpants are search-questing for for hundreds and hundreds of pages ends up being...well, completely redundant is a huge letdown for the readers.

I've found that the best speculative fiction is the kind that is subtle with its cliches, the kind that doesn't immediately announce itself as something you've seen before. Inheritance instead, for me at least, waved a big flashy sign saying "YARR, HERE THERE BE BADLY REHASHED TOLKIEN!"

I really do like Paolini's books.  I'm stuck in the story.  He is not however a good author.
