PROS & CONS OF THE INHERITANCE CYCLE:

PROS:

  • talking dragons
  • complicated magic that takes a toll on your body when you use it
  • badass poc (seriously the best characters are all poc and even murtagh can be headcanoned as such)
  • URGALS
  • the hero isn’t any less of an idiot than the average teenager. he grows out of it though
  • NASUADA, one of the real queens of my heart
  • NASUADA X MURTAGH (*CRIES FOREVER*)
  • the bad guys are so cool you’ll ask yourself why you hate them again? (but hey’re like, really awful people)
  • werecats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • AJIHAD FOR PRESIDENT OF EVERYTHING
  • arya, badass elven princess, being 10000% aware of the fact that most of the world is beneath her
  • eragon is the personification of the “hoe dont do it” meme
  • eragon’s attempts at flirting… good god….let’s say..uhm….realistic? cringeworthy?
  • murtagh’s life, like..all of it
  • there is a pronunciation guide at the end of each book, so you know how the author intended each name to be pronounced
  • murtagh’s back scar
  • THE CONCEPT OF “TRUE NAMES”
  • the ra’zac
  • the main character actually faces real consequences when he makes stupid decisions
  • world building worthy of lord of the rings tbh
  • every race has its distinctive culture, even the supposed “bad” races eg. urgals
  • ANGELA AND SOLEMBUM <3
  • disabled representation
  • ELVA
  • Saphira the dragon is sassy as hell and is 10000% aware that Eragon is, in fact, mostly wrong about everthing ever

CONS:

  • A LOT OF UNANSWERED QUESTIONS AT THE END OF THE SERIES LIKE??? WHY NOT PULL A TOLKIEN?? I WANNA KNOW WHERE THORN IS AT RIGHT NOW
  • people call murtagh an “antagonist” wtf????????what hte fuck what the ????

Day 13: Favorite Quote 

  I can’t pick a favorite quote from the series, but this is definitely one of them. I love this quote from Ajihad. Although it’s very subtle, he is comforting Eragon in this scene in the best way he can. He is telling him that, dragon rider or not, life is short. He is telling him not to dwell on his youth and inexperience, because it is something that he should treasure, and before he knows it, it will be gone.
