    Yep, even includes a bit of King Arthur as well.

    After having experienced Fate, it's always bemusing to read Arthurian stories and imagine Saber in them.

    Those are good if a little primitive, the golden age of discworld starts in Wyrd Sisters IMO
    As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.

    Reaper Man, I'd say.

    That said, it's good to try and read the novels in order.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot)
    - A duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) (Lemon) - Shirou and Shinji finally acknowledge their feelings.
    He Was a Good King (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A short exploration of Beowulf's character as a hero and a king.
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan in the distant past.

    I tried that, got stuck somewhere and never read the rest.
    Better to just pick up whichever tickles your fancy, I think.

    Oh, and The Nation, everyone should read The Nation.

    Just found out that Christopher Paolini put out another book set in Alagaesia (The Fork, the Witch and the Worn) while Philip Pullman is revisiting the multiverse of His Dark Materials in a new trilogy, titled The Book of Dust.
    I am torn between being elated and really, really scared about how they'll measure up.

    Didn't know that was a thing, I stopped reading midway through the second book.

    Pretty sure Eragon spent the entire tetralogy being various stages of starry-eyed about Arya, and if memory serves he even (much to the pleasure of the shippers and disdain of anyone with a functional brain) got together with her at the end, so no, that is almost certainly not a thing.Anyway, I picked up The Fork, the Witch and the Worm, so I'll share my impessions when I'm done.

    Also Spoony, I'd say the third book is by far the best and the ending of the second isn't that bad either.

    First chapter of TWTWATW deals with Murtagh helping a little girl and dueling seven thugs with a (magically strengtgened) fork. Not that bad, though nothing to write home about either.

    Actually he didn’t get together with her. More importantly it’s more of a fan joke then anything due to paolani spending more time describing orimov’s hairless groin or him and his cousins tearing clothes off themselves and each other then he ever did actually describing the elf.

    through 4 books she gets maybe 3 lines of actual description and even now nobody really knows what she is supposed to look like

    The best part of Eragon was his cousin.

    I do remember enjoying the third book a lot at the time though.

    Weird, I was sure that
    DON'T READ THIS SPOONY
    they got together when their dragons did. Though the new book showcasing Eragon dealing with Dragon Rider paperwork but no mention of Arya corroborates this.
    Anyway, the third book had it all: Political insights on the inner workings of the Rebe- the Varden, intrigue, straight up human fighting from Roran and the gang, and superhuman fighting from no-longer-a-whiny-birch Eragon.

    Also, Arya DOES get a lot of lines describing her "unearthly beauty", it's just that they're pretty light on actual physical features.
