It was about them all

Life Before Death. Strength Before Weakness. Journey Before Destination.

This, the First Ideal of the Knights Radiant, unites the ten Orders. Each has its own strength, its own journey. Each has its own role in the coming war. Will you ride highstorms or travel Shadesmar? Heal the wounded or stand against impossible odds? Click “Start” to find out!

Disclaimer: The only requirement for any Order is to uphold their Ideals—something best judged by the Knight and their spren. As I am not a spren and do not know all the Ideals, this test is an approximation at best. The Orders are more diverse than a single paragraph can capture, and you might be a reasonable fit for more than one Order. So take your results as a suggestion, not the final word.

Skybreaker - 59%

With their strong emphasis on the law, Skybreakers are among the most demanding of Orders. They have a strong sense of justice that can be used to punish the guilty or to defend the innocent. They possess the surges of Gravitation and Division. Their second Ideal is, “I will put the law before all else.”

Or maybe…

Bondsmith - 47%

Wise and trustworthy, Bondsmiths unite and lead the peoples of the world. They concern themselves with the big picture and coordinate other Radiants rather than fight on the front lines. They possess the surges of Tension and Adhesion. Their second Ideal is, “I will unite instead of divide. I will bring men together.”

I actually have a bit of a personal issue with the concept of justice, so I think Bondsmith might be the closest bet. Unity all the way!

I had these two kittens with this odd pattern of white hairs mixed in with the black. And I imagined them as Alethi kitties with a little bit of foreign blood. Alethkats?

So we’ve got Dalinar and Gavilar (and Elhokar). And we’ve got Adolin and Renarin. And I just feel like Kaladin fits in nicely with this family.

(Dalinar did say that people who wear his cloak are family in a way, right?)

No one knows what it’s like to be the bad man, to be the sad man, behind blue eyes…

All righty then. So much for CarCrash. I thought he just needed someone to love him and believe in him, but that was goofy cheesy optimism. That dude needs a bit more help than a nice girlfriend.

It’s PROGRESS

Somebody needs to find this girl some venison.

(But what’s going to happen to the imbecile grass of Shinovar when the Everstorm hits?)

What is a woman’s place in this modern world? I rebel against this question, though so many of my peers ask it. The inherent bias in the inquiry seems invisible to so many of them. They consider themselves progressive because they are willing to challenge many of the assumptions of the past.

They ignore the greater assumption, that a ‘place’ for women must be defined and set forth to begin with. Half of the population must somehow be reduced to the role arrived at by a single conversation. No matter how broad that role is, it will be - by nature - a reduction from the infinite variety that is womanhood.

I say that there is no role for women - there is, instead, a role for each woman, and she must make it for herself. For some, it will be the role of a scholar; for others, it will be the role of wife. For others, it will be both. For yet others, it will be neither.

Do not mistake me in assuming I value one woman’s role over another. My point is not to stratify our society - we have done that far too well already - my point is to diversify our discourse.

A woman’s strength should not be in her role, whatever she chooses it to be, but in the power to choose that role.
