Day 3: Tell Us How You Feel About Christopher Paolini.
Allow me to share my feelings with you… IN GIF FORM
Christopher Paolini: My books supported my parents.
J. K. Rowling: My books supported my child.
I read about how his parents were using him as their source of income. That is wrong on so many levels. I feel a bit sorry for him now.
And then I get over it.
The Bigass Things I Hate In Fantasy Maps Post
Most fantasy maps are really, really horrible. Here’s some of the worst offenders:
Eragon-world: The At Least One of Everything Fantasy Map.
Goodkind-land: The All the Borders Perfectly Follow Geographic Features Fantasy Map.
Kushiel-world: The Not Trying Hard Just Like Earth Fantasy Map.
Middle-Earth: The God Made It Fantasy Map.
Narnia: The Inconsistent Travel Distance Fantasy Map.
Valdemar: The Place Names Sound Really Made Up Fantasy Map.
Westeros: The Conveniently Paper-Shaped Continent Fantasy Map.
Randland: The Copying Stupid Things Tolkien Did Fantasy Map.
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms: The Fantasy Maps Are Mainstream Fantasy Map.
Christopher Paolini: I use my works as a podium to shove my values down my readers’ throats.
Terry Goodkind: Bitch, please.
Christopher Paolini: I got started by writing highly derivative works, and without any originality.
Terry Brooks: Bitch, please.
Your mockery of Paolini gives me life.
And the best part is that some of his fans started spreading his French Girl pose. Seriously? Go read Lord of the Rings and Earthsea and Pern and Star Wars and there’s no need for the Inheritance’s existence.
