OK, so I praise Linden in Runes in this thread:
http://kevinswatch.ihugny.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=21437&highlight=

I reread FR a few months ago but never made a post.
Here it is.

Her awesomeness continues without pause.

Linden comes back with the Staff and a few Demondim.
We learn that the Demonodim are total badasses that somehow link themselves to the Illearth Stone in the past.
The Demondim are so badass High Lord Kevin, the greatest Lord in the Lands history couldn't beat them.
But Linden reaches out with her health sense and Law and cut their connection to the Stone.
She probably would have then walked through Revelstones gates and killed them all before breakfast but TC and Jeremiah want her to go back in time.

They go back in time and meet Berek.
She's so awesome even Berek wants to bang her.

Then she meets the Viles.
The Viles are confused because they know that she's such a badass that there's no reason why she should be with TC and Jeremiah.

Then they go under Melenkurion Skyweir. She fights "TC and Jeremiah" and in the process splits the mountain and gets buried by it.
Ok, lets review that part again.
She fights "TC and Jeremiah" and in the process splits the mountain and gets buried by it.
The largest Mountain in the Land, and she god-damn split it in half.
Then the mountain collapses on her.
What does she do?
She grabs chunks of the falling mountain and God-damn REFORMS them around her in to a supporting cavern that will allow Damelon access in the future.

In the One Tree we were all thrilled when TC said "Nom","shattered the atmosphere" and blasted small falling stones into dust....wow, big whoop.

Then she gets swallowed up by a river, goes down an underground cavern and somehow comes up alive in Garroting Deep.
TC needed Bannor and a raft.
Apparently Linden just surrounded herself in a force field of awesomeness.

Linden and Mahdoubt light a fire in Garroting Deep. Which usually means instant death but Caerroil Wildwood comes out of the forest, looks at Linden and says "oh shit. I'm not fucking with you, never mind, let me give you a gift instead"
A gift.
Linden's got a Forestal giving her gifts!

Then she goes back to the present and gets her ass kicked by the Harrow.
I know what you're thinking "Oh she's so weak!"
Dude, read what she just did in like 2 days compared to whatever anyone else did in years.
You'd be tired too.

Now she's out of ideas, and wants TC.
The REAL TC.
Thank God for that because we all do by this point.
Everyone tells her no.
Except her friends.
To them she's like Spock in A Voyage Home.
They trust her guesses more than the Elohim's facts.

So she brings back TC and wakes the Worm.

I admit the Worm part is kind of a bummer but TC is back baby!

Good Post
A whole FR dissection in a single post.

Welcome back from the dark side, HLT. About time. When TLD comes out, we all know THOOLAH's days are over.

I think the nearness of TLD's emergence is the reason for THOOLAHians shouting their slogans in several threads right now; they're getting desperate. Razz Or perhaps they all secretly adore Linden and just try to deny their undying love by muffling it beneath torrents of noise. Twisted Evil Big Grin


Personally, I've had enough of Mary Sues to last for a lifetime. She's one of the few, truly flawed female characters in existence (at least in the 2nd chrons); thank Ukko for the existence of such.

I have never anticipated anything more in my life than LD.
I think I might stop reading for good when I'm done with it. Laughing

Not me. I know my first reading of TLD will be so breathlessly fast that I will need to go back and reread it at least twice more to get all the nuances of what SRD will do therein.

Indeed. The day it arrives I plan to take the day off. I finished the Deathly Hallows in 7 hours. I should be able to plow the TLD in about 8, give or take.
