Sometimes I picture Lews Therin Telamon as an actual, tiny dragon that lives in Rand’s brain and I feel no shame in this
found the basement dweller

look at Mai, Ty-Lee and Suki - they’re non-benders and yet they can kick powerful bender’s asses without a problem
And yeah, like I told Eshonai a while back, it seems that my copy is actually but half the book. Which left me with a bit of a moral decision; I’m trying to not buy many books while I’m abroad because getting them all home with me will be difficult. And the e-book (of the whole book, thank you very much) was fairly easy to find by not-so-legal means. I’m sure you can see where this is going.
Anyway, once I get back to Finland, I shall rectify the matter and buy the other half of the book
whose first half I already bought for the price of a full book.
Now, however, onto the commentary itself.
heyyyy guess what! Brandon Sanderson has stated that he has no problem with people… “acquiring” the ebook after they’ve bought a physical copy
Let’s take a minute to appreciate the fact that the devil himself could not construct a more glorious food web than me.
your otter needs work. here’s what a real otter looks like:
How do Trollocs multiply? I mean they’re not a natural species, they were created by Aginor, so I was wondering if making more Trollocs happen requires humans or other Shadowspawn, like those constructs in Thakan’dar, to keep making them (think along the lines of Saruman creating that super orc in…
This was answered by RJ himself and the questioner got way more than they expected:
Where do Trollocs come from? Are there male and female Trollocs that mate? Are there only male Trollocs that mate with animals and/or humans to reproduce? Are Trollocs neuter, grown in a big vat at Shayol Ghul? Inquiring minds want to know!
You know the original source, of course…a blending of human and animal genetic material in an effort to produce the “perfect” soldier, though as envisioned by somebody who had never seen combat. Yes, there are female Trollocs, though you don’t want to know more than that…there was a clear statement of this actually—that Trollocs breed—when where Myrddraal come from was explained. Sometimes a Trolloc off-spring is a throwback, but not all the way back to human, and twisted. Thus, eyeless but with keen vision, very strong indeed though not in Trolloc-class, able to vanish into shadows & reappear in other shadows.
There are no female Myrddraal; not even the laddie who made the Trollocs in the first place knew why…Myrddraal must have their “pleasures” with captured human women…there is no possibility of cross-breeding—it was tested, during the War of the Power, in the crudest sort of way; the Myrddraal isn’t sterile, but its sperm kills both human and Trolloc ova—and the sex practices and other attributes of Myrddraal are such that a very strong woman might retain her sanity for six months, but very few do.For the record, a Trolloc could also have sex with a human…they are now two completely incompatible species, so there isn’t any possibility of offspring—the Forsaken tested that out too… Trollocs are just not interested in human women sexually; to them, humans are just another food animal… Trollocs are of fairly low intelligence (I told you the designer was never in combat), so they would think of it about as we would having sex with sheep, though they would do it if ordered to. They’d just like it better if they could eat her afterwards.
So apparently I’m on a Mistborn kick again!
*clutches weakly at heart* No really I’m fine I’m over it sajkfgfhkd
A few bits of artistic license taken with this one, but eh - I like Short-Haired Urchin Vin AND Pretty Princess Ballgown Vin. Wolfhounds are tricky to drawww щ(ಥДಥщ)
I’ve never thought much about Arafel and its people. Sure they’ve got their fruity bells in their hair, who cares when Sheinar has badass heavy cavalry, Saldaea has crazy women who dance the sa’sara and Malkier has Lan Fucking Mandragoran?
That was until i reread a quote from Alanna in Winter’s Heart when she said she’d ‘wear bells in the blight’ before something.
The deadliest place in the world, where you really don’t want to be found, and they wear BELLS?
Shakespeare said ‘Discretion is the better part of Valour’ but not to the Arafellin! They’d rather let EVERYONE know they’re big, bad and in the blight and FUCK YOU to any trollocs, myyrdraal or anything that gets in their way!
