the kingkiller chronicle

There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.
—  Kvothe, The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, Patrick Rothfuss)

This quote is brilliant, and so damn true. Beware the quiet ones, they’re vicious when you piss them off.

The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss;
My name is Kvothe.
I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during the day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make minstrels weep.
You may have heard of me.

Concerning The Eolian

Okay so while studying exogenic processes at uni I just learned that “Eolian” is a legit English word and not just the name of a really cool bar in my favourite book series. The thing that stunned me most though is what it means, because the definition of the word is (quoted from the google dictionary thingy): “relating to or arising from the action of the wind” or (quoted from “of or caused by the wind; wind-blown”


Is this common knowledge to native English speakers and something that I just completely missed? Or has Pat been sneaky again and this is one of those hidden little things you can find throughout the book (this time if you happen to be studying geology)?? Either way it’s really cool, I have always liked how the wind is a constant theme in the series and this just made it even better!

Yes!!!! For a long time that I wanted to draw her! :__D
I don’t like her (her personality) but I like how a character she is and how is involved in the saga, she’s important that the story works!
I would like to draw to the main characters with this style (with the background of a color and the name ^^)

Hope you like it!!
