    PataCrem: I think this is how Urithiru's walls look like

    Brandon Sanderson: Yes, this is correct. I think I might have an image from this exact place in my reference photos for Urithiru.

    Navani was the first. It wasn’t a sudden shock, It took him a moment to even realize those feelings weren’t his, That his Bondsmith abilities were transferring her feelings to him through a simple touch.

    Hers were almost identical to his. The love, the desire, the warmth, the belonging. Her feelings of safety, and her peace of mind to be vulnerable with him being more intense than his own was probably the only difference.

    The second was Renarin. This time on purpose, He slowly planted his hand on his son’s shoulder. Curiosity to know what in the boy’s mind held. However, He was lost.

    He felt an overwhelming amount of love and respect from his son. It was dizzying enough without the many many emotions and thoughts, so entangled, so quick. He never thought Renarin’s mind would be such a storm. But before he could dig any deeper, he felt Renarin trying to wiggle out of his hands. He knew what Dalinar was doing and didn’t want to show him anymore of his mind.

    Adolin came third.

    The last few months have been driving them further and further apart. He hoped this can help him understand the boy better, so he landed his hand on his shoulder and lost himself to Adolin’s heart.

    A Sea. As if he was thrown into a sea, not violent, not calm, like a sea on a slightly windy spring day. Waves to admire, not to fear. Waves of emotions. He didn’t only feel the undeserving amount of love the boy had for him, He felt everything in their bond. Crystal clear water, yet So tremendously deep he can only see it bleed into blackness, with something blazing from the depths.

    A seething knot shone from the deep water, And he knew it had everything to do with him. He reached for it. It didn’t burn… or did it?

    Sorrow, anger , frustration.. dissatisfied .. storms! the boy had it with him.

    Sorrow… No, Adolin…. Sorrow… Son…Sorrow… sorrow..

    He felt his own heart tearing apart. He felt the Stormfather grunt from the pain. Why ? Why so much sorrow ?

    Longing.. for his mother…Anger.. Images of Evi burning, except these weren’t Dalinar’s memories. These are Adolin’s imagination? No, Dear God…Nightmares..

    Dalinar swallowed the lump in his throat and was cowardly escaping by removing his hand. He carried his pain, but was letting his son drown in his ?

    No, He held Adolin’s shoulder tighter, and he felt one more thing..

    Longing … for his father.

    Something missing. Dalinar knew this feeling all too well. He knew it from losing his memories. A part of yourself missing. A thirst while being lost at Sea.

    Adolin was missing, yearning, longing for his Father even as he stood here holding his shoulder.

    He looked at Adolin. And knew he didn’t need a supernatural ability to decipher the look in the boy’s eyes, those sincere eyes looking up at him. As sincere as his mother’s were. He can already see the sea in the blue of his son’s eyes.

    And then it happened so suddenly.

    Adolin smiled, a forced smile.. at first he thought.

    But he felt it. As the waves took over. Waves of love, to his father, pushed everything back to the seething knot and drowned it deeper. Down, down, down, till it Dalinar found a calm surface again.

    Adolin was commanding his heart.

    He wasn’t putting a facade. The smile was sincere.

    Unfortunately, It faded to be replaced by concerned eyes “Father? Are You alright? ”

    Dalinar took a deep breath before he finally had the heart to remove his hand and straighten.

    “ Yes”

    “ So, what did you want to reprimand me for ?”

    “ What? I didn’t want to… You did nothing wrong, Adolin”

    Adolin frowned, then nodded.

    “ Why would you think that, Son?”

    The boy blinked at him as if surprised by the question, “ your grip on my shoulder. It’s usually to stop me, And you looked angry. Then I thought something was wrong when it took you along time to give me a lecture.” He said with a tone of bitterness, but his eyes betrayed his tone again, “ If you’re alright, then where’s my lecture?”

    Dalinar opened his mouth to form words, any words, an apology for what he did? He couldn’t do it when the book drafts came out. He cowered then and he’ll now. An apology for his expectations? He still believes Adolin can be so much better than him, he could be one of the best that ever walked Roshar, and he still wants him to. A statement of love? The mere fact that it’s in question saws through his very bones in agony…..

    Adolin turned around and left the room.

    And Dalinar still didn’t take the next step.

    On Era 2 Scadriel they have electrical wiring. To make electrical wiring to work you have to have metal wires. Does that mean that you could possibly push/pull against the walls if you’re a strong enough Mistborn???

    "Does he, you know, have a sweet tooth?"

    Questioner: On Roshar, it's kind of tradition men eat spicy foods, women more sweeter. Could it be possible that a sort of euphemism for gay men or gay women is, "Does he eat sweet food? Does she eat spicy food?"

    Brandon Sanderson: I could see people saying that, yes.

    Adolin is such an interesting and imo so far underwritten character. He approaches things with passion and drive but when he is corrected in his foreard thinking he adapts. Not right away all the time but he adapts. Like when Shallan returns from the chasm. She makes it clear this glass jar he implies to put her in (though I dont think he intended that tbh) is not acceptable and will be fought.

    And he defends that choice of hers to Navani right away.

    HE DEFENDS THAT CHOICE OF HERS WITHIN MOMENTS!!!!!!

    I havent finished worda and this is my first read of the series but damn. Adolin adapts and changes and challenges his own behavior so much its just completely unappreciated I think.

    No to mention he stands his own while being slowly surrounded by magic weilding people :/

    I just really like Adolin and I hop le I get to see more of him while the stories progress

    A leader is often judged by how well he bears responsibility. As king, everything that happens in your kingdom—regardless of who commits the act—is your fault. You are even responsible for unavoidable events such as earthquakes or storms." "Or armies," Elend said. Tindwyl nodded. "Or armies. It is your responsibility to deal with these things, and if something goes wrong, it is your fault. You simply have to accept this." Elend nodded, picking up a book. "Now, let's talk about guilt," Tindwyl said, seating herself. "Stop cleaning. That isn't a job for a king." Elend sighed, setting down the book. "Guilt," Tindwyl said, "does not become a king. You have to stop feeling sorry for yourself." "You just told me everything that happens in the kingdom is my fault!" "It is." "How can I not feel guilty, then?" "You have to feel confident that your actions are the best," Tindwyl explained. "You have to know that no matter how bad things get, they would be worse without you. When disaster occurs, you take responsibility, but you don't wallow or mope. You aren't allowed that luxury; guilt is for lesser men. You simply need to do what is expected." "And that is?" "To make everything better." "Great," Elend said flatly. "And if I fail?" "Then you accept responsibility, and make everything better on the second try."

    If stormlight had a weed cookie episode

    So what would happen if someone accidentally brought weed cookies to a meeting for the knights radiants?

    Kaladin: really can’t see him being to fun or that he would eat from a cookie jar at the table. Given how he gets when drunk I’d imagine he’d just get tired and slightly less grumpy, probably the one who would realize the issue and have to deal with everyone

    Shallan: living her best life, cracking jokes with lopen. Took another one after they realized

    Navani: starts going trough her notes thinking she’s made some major discovery (she hasn’t) has a maggie moment where she panics over losing her pen

    Lift: ate half of the cookies but would thankfully not be affected due to her awesomeness

    Dalinar: probably has enough experience being drunk at meetings to have a really good pokerface. Everyone assumes he didn’t eat any until he starts giggling at shallans jokes

    Jasnah: probably a similar reaction to bailey in being annoyed, would probably also react badly to learning she was essentially drugged. Sits and rants next no navani

    Szeth: stares at the painting on the wall without moving

    Adolin: he’s calm and didn’t eat much before they realized, teams up with kaladin and lift in trying to make sure everyone stays in the room. Looking after other people are kind of his thing

    Skar and Drehy are just snacking on anything they can find chilling in the back of the room with renarin who keeps pining for rlain

    The spren are very confused and pattern is just “mmmmm fascinating”

    It’s too bad there are so few mothers because the line “vaginas are terrific the way they are, honestly. I love em, you know. I came from one, so… this one, hers, actually. Hey ma” is excellent

    Could see adolin saying something like that…..

    Let’s pretend they are out of stormlight to explain why they aren’t just burning it off (now I’m just imagining adolin and kaladin trying to convince dalinar to open the perpendicularity, but he’s just clapping his hands over and over)

    #this is mostly based on how the characters act in the original episode #so if it’s unrealistic it’s for comedy #cosmere#stormlight archive#brandon sanderson#cfsbf #somehow I can’t imagine adolin being significantly affected by anything #even alcohol I just imagine him as the type of person who enjoys a class od something stronger but also knows his limits #and stays at a comfortable level of tipsyness #wow he really is the most well adjusted around #glass of*#context: #the doctors of greys anatomy accidentally ate weed cookies during a conference #great episode #the only part I recommend watching

    Steris

    Blue Spirit Gem: Will Steris have her own point of view chapters in The Lost Metal?

    Brandon Sanderson: Yes she will. I don't have to RAFO that, because I have already written a couple of them. I'm pretty sure she got a couple in Bands of Mourning, she will have more in Lost Metal.
