Hey guys, i just joined, so i thought id post.

Why did you start reading the Codex Alera series? I started reading them after i finished all 11 books of Dresden Files. I didnt think the series looked quite good, but when i had an extra 8 bucks, and a vacation, i figured it couldnt hurt. I love the books now, and i cant wait till Captain's Fury comes out.
Who is your favourite character?
I think Kitai. Shes really entertaining, and i like her personality

Do you think Gaius makes a good First Lord? Gaius is ok. I think alot of people stretch their opinion of him. Everyone who is loyal to him is LOYAL to him, everyone who doesnt like him HATES him. No one just kinda likes him. I think hes ok, he has pros and cons, just as every leader has.

Do you believe Tavi will ever have a fury of his own? Yeah probably. In the beginning i was really wanting him to have one, and now im iffy on it

If you had to align yourself with one of the High Lords, which would it be? Well, i wouldnt align myself with one, but if i had to, the Aquitanes, i dont know them, i know they are ruthless, but id rather be on the end of the winning side

What is your favourite scene/moment in Furies of Calderon? The battle when Fade took up a sword next to his brother

If you had a fury, what element do you believe it would be? I would like it to be Earth, but as i am now, i bet it would be water. Maybe i could have both and be mud :P

If you were sent to Alera, and could take one item from our world with you, what would it be? Um, id take a fury

What do you hope to get out of this community? To see what others think about it.

Please explain your lj name. I made up Kero awhile ago. I think it was because i heard the name "Nero" and somehow switched N with a K.

I've said for a while that I wanted to change the 10 questions, especially due to happenings in the Cursor's Fury.

So this is where I call for help. Please, comment with suggestions. :)

The questions I'd like to keep:
Why did you start reading the Codex Alera series?
Who is your favourite character?
If you had a fury, what element do you believe it would be?
If you were sent to Alera, and could take one item from our world with you, what would it be?
Please explain your lj name.


So that means I'll need 5 new questions. Once we've got a bunch of suggestions, I'll toss up a poll, and we can vote for our 5 favourites.

so....

Ok, so i've been a member since shiggy opened this bloody community, but i do believe i have NEVER posted to it.... So figured it was time to... so here is my 10 questions

Why did you start reading the Codex Alera series? Because Shiggy handed me the first book and told me to read it....

Who is your favourite character? Kitai. i adore her, the little whelp that she is..

Do you think Gaius makes a good First Lord? Yes, but at the same time i think he's a stuck up rich guy, which is never a good thing

Do you believe Tavi will ever have a fury of his own? Yes, but if he doesn't thats ok.. he seems to be doing pretty good with out one.

If you had to align yourself with one of the High Lords, which would it be? the Aquitaines. Sure they're evil but I've always liked the evil ones... I mean, i like lord Voldyshorts and not dumbles in potter for goodness sakes...

What is your favourite scene/moment in Furies of Calderon? I really like the the scene in furies with tavi and the whelp... in the forest.

If you had a fury, what element do you believe it would be? Fire i hope.. I like fire *pyro!!!!*

If you were sent to Alera, and could take one item from our world with you, what would it be? my glasses... most definitely my glasses.. i do need to see from time to time.. and i'm virtually blind without them.

What do you hope to get out of this community? Shiggy leaving me alone?

Please explain your lj name. It's a nick name that shem gave me... It means little devil.

I just now found this lovely community. I have no idea why I didn't join sooner. I'm obviously a slacker. But I've been reading this series from the first day it was released. And my love for it just continues to grow. And now that I'm rambled needlessly...I'll answer the ten questions.

Why did you start reading the Codex Alera series? I started reading the Codex Alera series largely because I was already in love with Jim's other series.

Who is your favourite character?
My favorite character is actually probably Tavi. A rarity for me, I normally find more love for secondary characters. But a close second would be Max and Kitai.

Do you think Gaius makes a good First Lord?
I think he cares for his people. I think he's better than some other options. But I think he is just as guilty as all the other High Lords in looking out for himself first and everyone else second.

Do you believe Tavi will ever have a fury of his own?
I've always believed Tavi will have something amazing spring forth. Whether that is a fury or not...eh. But I lean more toward yes.

If you had to align yourself with one of the High Lords, which would it be?
I don't know that I would really want to. Well, ok no. Personally I'm a big fan of the Aquitaines. Evil? More than a bit, but they're smart. And willing to work with anyone to further their agenda. I have a soft spot for them.

What is your favourite scene/moment in Furies of Calderon?
Um, any scene with Kitai is really high up there.

If you had a fury, what element do you believe it would be?
Most likely water, I was always really empathetic growing up.

If you were sent to Alera, and could take one item from our world with you, what would it be?
I don't know that there is something I'd really want to take. My favorite pair of jeans would be nice. Comfy = Good.

What do you hope to get out of this community?
Mutual Codex Alera squeeing?

Please explain your lj name.
It's a play on my actual name, Alisha.

Ten Questions

Why did you start reading the Codex Alera series? I picked up the first Dresden book on a whim years ago. It caught my eye, looked interesting, and I had the money, so it came home with me. Every time I went into a bookstore after that, I'd look for something else by Jim, 'cause I love his writing style. Once I found the first Alera book, I *devoured* it. I'm a gamer, and this book reads like a roleplaying campaign. I could even see how the furies could be done in a RP environment, and I was fascinated.

Oh, and the story was excellent, too. ;)

Who is your favourite character? Hmmm... Tavi, of course, is a favorite... as is Kitai. I also really like Amara.

Do you think Gaius makes a good First Lord? I think Gaius is in a difficult position, and I think he does the best with what he has. Does he make mistakes? Of course. But in the end, he is doing what he feels is best for his land, and not what he feels is best for Gauis Sextus... so yes, I think he is a good First Lord.

Do you believe Tavi will ever have a fury of his own? If you'd asked me this a couple of months ago, I would have said "no". ;)

If you had to align yourself with one of the High Lords, which would it be? Knowing what we know as outsiders, I'd say Placida. If I was actually caught up in the middle of it without any outside knowledge... probably the Aquitaines.

What is your favourite scene/moment in Furies of Calderon? This is actually one I'll have to think about... 'cause no specific thing is coming to mind.

If you had a fury, what element do you believe it would be? I'm fairly certain it would be water, because I'm already naturally empathic and a healer. :p

If you were sent to Alera, and could take one item from our world with you, what would it be? I have absolutely no clue.

What do you hope to get out of this community? I love these books, and have dragged one of my friends into the obsession, too... but I don't have anyone other than him to discuss the books with. So I'm hoping for intelligent discussion beyond "OMG! That book Rox!" ;)

Please explain your lj name. It's a name I made up... oh, about 10-12 years ago. No specific meaning, I just needed a name for a female white tiger, and "Moryssa" seemed to fit. And it stuck. I've been Moryssa ever since. (except when I was Morgana or Grizabella :) )

Why did you start reading the Codex Alera series? Because I could never really get into his Dresden Files series. *ducks* I know! Those books have all the characteristics I love but somehow when I try to read them, I am just ... meh. I don't really understand it.

Who is your favourite character? Tavi

Do you think Gaius makes a good First Lord? Yeah but he needs to name a successor. Tavi is there - he has proven himself. It's time, furies or not.

Do you believe Tavi will ever have a fury of his own? Yes - according to the third book, he will. Surprisingly, I am not sure how I feel about that.

If you had to align yourself with one of the High Lords, which would it be? Placida

What is your favourite scene/moment in Furies of Calderon? I actually like when he and Kitai met.

If you had a fury, what element do you believe it would be? I'd love to be air. I would love to fly.

If you were sent to Alera, and could take one item from our world with you, what would it be? ...The internet! Heh.

What do you hope to get out of this community? I'd love to talk to other fans of this series.

Please explain your lj name... Huh, well it is my first initial plus the phrase 'is a goddess'. I wanted something really positive and personally affirming. I came up with it while joining another community.

Hey. Just found this community, but (as my friends will tell you) I analyze this series a bit too in depth. Can't help but love Butcher -- as a huge fan of Melanie Rawn's Exiles series, which is going on ten-plus years between novels, I'm almost willing to sacrifice goats to an author who can churn out top-quality books so quickly.

SPOILERS within my answers.

Ten Questions )
[identity profile] tsk1979.livejournal.com
Hi,
I am new to this community, though not new to Jim Butcher.
I have read the dresden files, 1-8 and Codex alera 1-2.
Planning to get Cursor's fury soon. Sadly book availability is shoddy in India, esp of lesser known authors!
Was planning to ship from amazon, but shipping costs are twice the cost of the book

Anyways hello everyone.
My ten Answers )

Ten Questions

Why did you start reading the Codex Alera series?
Main reason... it was written by Jim Butcher, and I ate up all the Harry Dresden books up to that point and loved them. After I started reading the first book, I loved how it was so different than that Dresden books. Even though it's written by the same man, it has such a distinct and difference voice all its own.

Who is your favourite character?
Oh goodness, that is hard. I mean, I like Tavi since he is the underdog/odd-one-out with no furies like everyone else. He's just got his wits about him, and he still kicks ass. But I also really like Isana... she just feels classic and wonderful - and also kicks a lot of ass when she needs to.

Do you think Gaius makes a good First Lord?
Yes. I think he's got a good heart even though he doesn't know his wife is a wench. He tries to maintain peace and structure even to the point where it takes a toll on him and his health (reference to Academ's Fury).

Do you believe Tavi will ever have a fury of his own?
Hell yeah, but even if he doesn't, he's still pretty kickass without any.

If you had to align yourself with one of the High Lords, which would it be?
Gaius.

What is your favourite scene/moment in Furies of Calderon?
Oh goodnes, it's been a while since I've read "Furies"... I like battle scenes that are well written. I think I most liked when Tavi was with the Marat. All of that was rather cool and interesting.

If you had a fury, what element do you believe it would be?
Instinctually I would always like to kick ass so I would want to say something like fire or earth... but I think I'd go for something like water. I like the idea of healing people. (But then perhaps I'd be like Bernard and have two furies. Then I'd have one defensive and one offensive. Does that make any sense?) *grin*

If you were sent to Alera, and could take one item from our world with you, what would it be?

What do you hope to get out of this community?
Mainly discussion. Only me and my best friend read the books. None of my other friends do.

Hi! I was looking around for a place for Codex Alera discussion, after finishing Academ's Fury the other day, and was very much cheered to discover that there's an LJ-community dedicated to this. So -- hello!

Introductory ten questions post )

And there's something I've been wondering about since Furies of Calderon, and especially since finishing Academ's Fury: speculation/prediction and possible spoilers )
