Reader Mail: Survey of Awesomeness

Occasionally I receive some very cool, and creative, emails from my readers from around the world. Recently I received a survey from a few of my (self-described) weirdest, nerdiest, and most number one fans: Jessica, Matthew, and Jared Ashcraft. I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you. I have italicized my answers for your convenience.

You are a…

  • Fish
  • Stick
  • Potted Plant
  • Fish Stick on top of a potted plant
  • Other:

Would you rather…

  • Become an evil High Epic and destroy everything and everyone in your city?
  • Watch all your friends and family be eaten slowly by wild chalklings?

Who would win in a fight between Vin and Kaladin and why?

  • Vin. Kaladin isn’t good at hurting people who aren’t hurting people he cares about.

Are you more like…

  • Wax?
  • Wayne?

Which of your characters is your favorite?

  • None. They’re all like my children.

Which of the following has a larger obsession over guns?

  • Waxillium
  • David

Who would it make you more sad to turn evil?

  • Wayne
  • Kaladin

Which would you choose?

  • Twinborn
  • Mistborn
  • Full Feruchemist
  • Elantrian (not the undead kind)
  • Epic (nice)
  • Rithmatist
  • Knight Radiant
  • Awakener
  • Smedry Talent
  • Other :

Explain previous answer including form of power if necessary

  • Lots of metal in my current life. Not much Stormlight. So Mistborn wins.

If you didn’t choose Twinborn previously but you were Twinborn anyway, which two metals would you choose?

  • Same as Wax.

If all your books were burning in a fire, and you could only save one, which book would you save?

  • Way of Kings.

Is Zahel really Vasher?

  • Yes
  • No

Is there significance in the fact that the world of Silence Montane uses silver for protection? (Even though there is no known allomantic use for silver)

  • Yes.

Are you fluent in High Imperial? If so, do you teach lessons?

  • No and no.

Have you really had your library card revoked 17 times?

  • Alcatraz made that up. He does things like that.

Why are you doing this survey instead of writing Stormlight 3?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

  • Because the writers of this survey are so awesome
