If Tien was alive he’d be a year older than Shallan.

Just thought y’all should know that

I went to Coppermind to check.

Current year: 1173. Kaladin’s year of birth: 1153. Shallan’s: 1156. Tien was two years younger than Kaladin, so born in 1155. Yep. It is true.

(On another note, I keep forgetting how young they are. Even when I consider Rosharan year is 1,1 Earth years, Kaladin is still only 22 and Shallan is still only 19. Way too young for what they’ve had to survive.)

tbh there was more talk of killing kings in words of radiance alone than in two whole books of the kingkiller chronicles

I mean, I haven’t read Kingkiller Chronicles yet, but Way of Kings has a dead king before the first chapter.

… “You must have shown me real loyalty down in the Chamber. Nothing but that could’ve called Fawkes to you.” That’s the very first thing Dumbledore thanks and praises Harry for. Not for rescuing Ginny, or saving the school from the basilisk, or for keeping Voldemort from coming back, but for loyalty.

Dumbledore judges the people he works with based first and foremost on how loyal they are to him. Not because he thinks he’s all that, but because, as I said, he views people as game pieces, and you can’t have your game pieces acting up, can you? He values his pieces. He wants to advance and protect them. But he doesn’t want them running off beyond his sphere of influence and doing their own thing. I think there’s something very ambiguous about Dumbledore’s habit of seeking out desperate, socially outcast people and doing them one or two huge favors that leave them bound to him for life. Remus, Hagrid and Snape all fit that pattern, and Trelawney and Firenze appear to join the ranks in OOP. It kind of makes me wonder what Dumbledore has done for Fletcher, Moody and Shacklebolt.

…The problem with Sirius is, he’s not loyal to Dumbledore at all; he’s loyal to Harry. From Dumbledore’s point of view, it’s as if he’s playing wizard chess, and one of the knights suddenly decides that he doesn’t care what happens to the king, he’s just going to take care of that little pawn on the left. So Dumbledore does the only thing he thinks he can do — he sticks his recalcitrant knight into a safe, isolated corner of the board and keeps him from making any moves. Perfectly sensible and strategically sound, as long as you don’t expect your game pieces to have any pesky emotions or psychological issue that need to be taken into account.

…Dumbledore’s actions at Hogwarts are another symptom of his general approach. He doesn’t treat it just as a school, but also as an instrument in his strategy. People like Snape, Hagrid and Trelawny — all lousy teachers, in very different ways — are given their jobs as perks, because of their past of future usefulness to the Order, and because it strengthens their bonds of loyalty to Dumbledore.

OTOH, look at Lupin, who is a talented teacher. Why wasn’t he hired before Harry’s third year, especially given the difficulty of finding qualified DADA professors? My theory is that Dumbledore didn’t consider it necessary. As far as he knew, Lupin was already totally loyal simply because Dumbledore had allowed him to attend Hogwarts. There was no need to bribe him with a job. He was hired only when his familiarity with Sirius became an important factor. Once Sirius proved not to be a threat, Lupin was allowed to resign…

怜香伴 - the fragrant companion
怜香伴 was written by Li Yu, a late-Ming early-Qing actor and playwright, and tells the tale of two women, Cui Jianyun and Cao Yuhua, who meet at a temple and fall in love, and promise to be husband and wife in their next lives. Having newly married Fan Jiefu, Cui Jianyun convinces her husband to take Cao Yuhua as a second wife, so that the two might be together forever. [x]
