  1. As the topic header suggests, I'm going to a signing today. So. Questions that should be asked? Ideas for conversation? Tell me how to pick his brain!
  2. In all the 14 pages of this thread, I've seen only 1 reference to the Hawkwing/Fortuona conversation that Mat suggested. I hadn't even CONSIDERED this as a possibility until I saw Mat say that. What I wouldn't give to see how THAT conversation went down. :) I'm surprised there isn't more interest in this thought. As for everything else, the things I would have like to see fall in line with everyone elses. What's in the letters? Who's Nakomi really? There's a lot of things i'd LIKE to know, but overall i'm VERY satisfied with how it all turned out.
  3. JUST finished my series reread by polishing off Towers of Midnight this morning. :) Bring on AMoL!!
  4. While I like this idea, I'm still more fond of one I read on here a while back. The last line of the book being "You win again, Lews Therin." or something along those lines.
  5. You're welcome. The crap I was coming up with was junk compared to this type of stuff. :)
  6. I'm fairly certain this is spoiler free. If someone thinks otherwise, feel free to move the thread, but I"m pretty darn confident in it. Content is about WoT, Mistborn, AND Stormlight, a few questions from each. I'll just post the WoT related ones here. If people want Stormlight or Mistborn questions, let me know and I"ll add those in. Q: "I was thinking about Moiraine's questions to the Aelfinn. We already know what one of them was, is there any hint as to the other two?" A: "If they aren't revealed in the last book, they will probably be in the Encyclopaedia. We want to save a few things for that, just so you know." Q: "I was thinking about the bloodknives rings. What are the stones that they have? Are they Shayul Ghul rocks or something else?" A: *long pause* "Finding Shayul Ghul rocks in Seanchan hands would be a very difficult thing." Q: "So that's a no." A: "I didn't say no. I just said it would be a very difficult thing." Next Question was Stormlight. Then Mistborn. Q: "Do we ever find out how strong in the power Tuon would be if she ever snapped and started channeling? Did RJ leave any notes about that?" A: "Yes he did. The problem is that that's not hte sort of thing I can work int o the books very easily. The issu eis that her strength would be tied to, well, people's strength go up they practice and things.Yes he has the notes, but there's no way the characters can know for sure. That would be something for the outriggers, which maybe we can get into the encyclopaedia. He left a big list for everyone and a number for their power level, their strength in the One Power, just for comparisons sake, which was cool because it would also say 'Here's teh threshold for creating a gateway and here's the theshold for this and its a really cool list and I hope they put it into the encyclopaedia but I don't know if they will." Q: "Ok, so she's not going to snap in the next one and start channeling?" A: "Well. Even if she did, how powerful she would get would not be immediately evident. Does that make sense?" After that I asked for book referrals. So that's all WoT relevant stuff. :) If you want to know what else I asked, like I said, make a note and I'll put it in another post in this thread.
  7. Should I just post it here? Or is there's other place on the board that would be better?
  8. Just got done. Will transcribe and post questions and answers when I get a chance later today. He was surprisingly direct at times. :)
  9. I'm going to the idaho falls book signing today in a couple of hours. Any suggestions what I should as our dear Mr Sanderson? WoT or Stormlight related. Mistboenceven if you'd like. I just need ideas!
  10. I guess it could be that they're the first I have ever listened to regularly. Maybe others will grow on me. Lol
  11. So. I'm posting this here because I'm not sure where else to say it, but it's something that's been on my mind Plainly put, Michael Krame and Kate Reading have ruined me for other Audiobook readers. My wife and I have been listening to the audiobooks for a while now, since I do alot of driving for work, and she recently tried to listen to a different story, something called Uglies. The reader for that series, strangely, began to grate on us. She wasn't Kate. It's gonna make it difficult to listen to much of anything else, I think. So my question is that, since we haven't listened to the audio for any of hte Mistborn books or the Way of Kings (though having read them, they're amazing) I know Kramer does the readings for Mistborn, but does he do it for Stormlight as well? Will the pair of them continue to read Sanderson's novels as they have Jordan's? What else can I hear them in?
  12. I didn't mean that THIS site would become a Stormlight-based fansite. Just that many of the fans of this are fans of Sanderson's other works, too, and would make their way to THOSE fanboards in a similar way to how they came here. That's all.
  13. I haven't read through all 4 pages of responses on this topic, so I don't know if it was mentioned or not, but I was kind of under hte idea that, when the series is over, the majority of this crowd would transfer their fervor to the Stormlight series for the NEXT 20 years. :) I am fairly certain that I will be. lol
  14. I'm having an issue. I want to pick up and read AMoL when it comes out. I want to try and avoid prerelease chapters and the like, because I feel like I"ll enjoy the overall story more if I avoid the spoilers. But it's so dang HARD! I want to know, I want to read, I want to finish the damn story! :) Maybe i"ll have to lock myself in a room without internet for the next couple of months...or something. I dont know if i'll make it the whole way. I'll probably crack eventually. But i'm going to hold out as long as I can...lol
  15. I've done some light searching and couldn't find any recent topics on this subject, but that doesn't guarantee this topic hasn't been touched on before. I recently came across a youtube video with an accomanying link which gave me a wonderful idea for how a day can dawn twice. If this idea has already come up, please refer me to the thread so I can see the discussion. The whole video is interesting, but the relevant point is about 5 minutes in. Listen to that whole part. http://www.darylscience.com/downloads/DblSunset.pdf This is the accompanying article they used as a partial source. Based on this, starting on a high mountain (dragonmount or some other high point), watching sunrise, then going to the base it can be seen again. Interesting.
  16. I'm planning on starting my reread sometimes in February or March. It takes me between 6-7 months to reread all that's currently out, depending on life activities and current levels of focus. I'm giving myself a bit of leeway to slack off a bit if I see myself getting too close to the mark. My wife started her first read in July of 2011 and is currently on CoS. If she continues at the pace she's on, she will probably be all caught up within a month or two of the release. lol.

    If this has a topic somewhere, sorry. I didn't see it. But wow. Seriously. For you Mistborn fans out there (and I know you're there!) Pick it up. Read it. Love it. :D If this is what Brandon produces when he's TAKING A BREAK FROM WRITING, then it's easy to see why I love what he does when he's really going at it. :D
  18. If this has already been discussed, someone point me in the direction of the topic, cause I missed it. Anyway, we haven't seen or heard from Loyal Loial since the end of TGS when he was discussing the Book of Translation with those other Ogier (been a couple of months. details might be off.) Where is he? I remember getting the distinct impression he was going to try to talk the Ogier into fighting alongside everyone instead of running away into the other world teh Book would take them to.
  19. Forgive me for not scrolling through 211 pages of posts for this answer...i'm short on time. anyway, in my current ReRead, i've just started FoH. In the prologue, we have Elaida's meeting with some Aes Sedai discussing Tower business and whatnot. At that meeting is Danelle. Forgive me if I'm wrong, cause it's been a short while, but she's the one that was eventually discovered as being Mesaana, right? I assume we don't know EXACTLY when that change took place, from being her to being Mesaana in disguise, but do we have a rough before/after point where the change is sure to have happened? I only ask because I read that section today and couldn't help but wonder if she was already there...
  20. So my wife is doing her first read-through of the WoT after some convincing from me. She's enjoying it. :) Though, after following her through several different book series, i've noticed that she has a tendency to get VERY attached to characters. When she read Mistborn, she bawled like a baby when she though Elend had died at the end of Well of Ascension. And then again at the end of hte series. She's just past Elaida's overthrow and stilling of Siuan in tSR and again, much crying. This woman, she's adorable. And she's going to have a freakin HEART ATTACK when Moiraine disappears in the next book. Because i'm not going to tell her what happens. SHe's going to have to read on like the rest of us did. Which brings me to my question. How attached does everyone get to characters in the series they read? :) Stories?
  21. That's one heck of a set of guesses there, Hopefire... And I would be satisfied with it, for the most part. :D
  22. I've noticed that a few fansites are already popping up for Sanderson's new series, and I was wondering what people thought the pre-eminent one was going to be? Or are we all just going to change over TL and DM to TSA forums and fansites? :D
  23. That seems a bit far fetched, though not completely out of the question. I don't think that I like the idea, though. Gives too much room for changing things that don't need to be changed. But then, change IS inevitable. The pattern doesn't have to be falling apart for THAT to be true.
  24. RIght. I forgot that Thom was there. Dammit. lol
  25. Idaho Falls, Idaho. I'm only about 4 hours away from BS! Not as close as those Utards out there, but closer than most of you! hahaha! ;) lol
