SF had a lot to do with how many of us turned out, or so i think lol! I know that it's definitely had an impact on my life and I can kind of relate to what you said, morwen. SF, believe it or not, was actually my "rebellion". I mean, being unsupervised on the internet while talking to complete strangers? Oh, the horror!!! :-o :lol: Even if it's just to check in every once in a while, I don't think I'll ever stop posting here. This place just means too much to me.

And there's always the hope that CP will put out another book. Aaaany time now... (No, seriously, check out his Facebook page. I'm guessing late late this year or spring next year.)

Oh yeah, SF is so rebellious :lol: I didn't really go through anything while on SF, just a lot of fun and stuff, despite some depression, but that was more due to high school and my first years in college. But anyway, I do miss this place and all the crazies like Saphie, Angle, Astra, and everyone else :D

I guess I wouldn't mind a new book coming out from him. Maybe its just from the writing classes I took and college and from writing my own stories, but the Inheritance Cycle had a ton of issues with it like over powered protagonists, Eragon begin a Mary Sue, purple prose, and a ton of filler material that didn't need to be there. Either way, with its faults, its still a fun story to read :)

Confession: I have yet to read the last book. Though I saw it at the library and started reading it (in Chinese).

I would hope that his writing has matured with age... I can't reread the series, but it was a good once in a lifetime read (okay, twice).

In Chinese? Are you in China or in a place with a large Chinese community?

You're not really missing much. It had a lot of filler content that easily could have been removed. Actually, the third and fourth books could have been one if all the pointless filler information was taken out. That, and he made Eragon aa whiney arrogant brat in the fourth one (granted, he was always a Gary-Stu, but this one made it worse). The Varden also grew more overpowered with a werecat nation that appeared for pretty much no reason and didn't really add anything other than making showing that the empire stood no chance. Not a single elf died until the final battle, and that was only because Galbatorix buffed up a soldier with a bunch of wards. Other than that, the elves were their normal OP selves. Also, the ending was a very bad rip off of LoTR's ending.

So yeah, if you can tell, I'm not really that crazy about the last book :lol: (All though, I will admit it had some interesting parts.)

I live in Taiwan now, and the main language is Chinese,
so yeah.

Yeah, several pages in I realized it was doing more review than anything else... I mean, I eventually reached the point where the story actually picked up... When it was time for me to leave the library =p

I feel even less inclination to finish it now... If I want LotR, I'm gonna read LotR.

I think I'm more likely to look up a summary of the last book to than read it.
Or create an alternate ending in my head. That's good too.

I've been fulfilling my Inheritance needs by writing fanfiction. Here are the stories I've been posting on Fanfiction.net and Deviantart. All these stories take place in the same universe.

"Saphira" -A story centering around Brom and his dragon, Saphira I. It tells their story and details the downfall of the Dragon Riders. Morzan and his dragon, Ragnarok, are depicted a bit more sympathetically than the books make them out to be.

"Something Far More Dangerous" -Set shortly after The Fall, Morzan and Ragnarok are sent by Galbatorix to the land of Danthuania in search of surviving Riders and dragons. Instead, they find a clan of gryphons being hunted by a cruel king, and are torn between fulfilling their mission or helping their new friends win back their freedom.

"The Blood of a Gryphon" -The story of Fletcher the gryphon. It also focuses on his parents, who play a much larger role than they did in the RPs on this site.

"Tales" -A series of short stories including the downfall of Natagath, some back story on Fletcher's parents, a tragic love story involving Saphira I and Ragnarok, and a teaser for a future project I have planned.

"Inheritance Legacy: The Riders Reborn" -A hard alternate storyline for the Inheritance Cycle. A threat even greater than Galbatorix has emerged and the gods decide to resurrect several dead people to save the world from this great evil. Alongside Eragon and Saphira, and Brom (he didn't die in this timeline), the resurrected characters include Saphira I, Morzan and Ragnarok, Jarnunvosk, and another as-of-yet unnamed dragon and Rider. This is an "Avengers" type setup which features many of the characters from the previously mentioned stories. Each character gets their own story arc, with Eragon and Saphira undergoing their training, Oromis and GLaedr trying to rebuild the Dragon Riders, Morzan and Ragnarok trying to earn their redemption, Ragnarok and Saphira I trying to rekindle their relationship, Jarnunvosk trying to save the soul of her crazed former Rider, and all of them having to save the world.



"Distant Seas" -A story that I haven't started on yet, but it will be a follow-up to "Legacy". Alagaesia is recovering and the Dragon Riders are being rebuilt. Jarnunvosk, now Riderless and haunted by her painful past and struggling to find her place in the world, sets off for the tropical island paradise of Kokamona to do some soul searching. However, her tropical getaway is cut short when the island paradise and its inhabitants are threatened by a sinister evil force. I've grown rather attached to Jarnunvosk while writing about her in "Legacy" and while this story was originally going to center on Brom and Saphira I's adventures after the war, I decided to make Jarnunvosk the main character instead. Besides, Brom and Saphi were already features in several other stories. Overall I plan for it to be a more lighthearted story than "Legacy", featuring voodoo magic, battles with pirates, and an evil shade, all while set in a tropical Caribbean-like setting.
