”At first glance, the key and the lock it fits may seem very different. Different in shape, different in function, different in design. The man who looks at them without knowledge of their true nature might think them opposites, for one is meant to open, and the other to keep closed. Yet, upon closer examination, he might see that without one, the other becomes useless. The wise man then sees that both lock and key were created for the same purpose.—Sazed describing love
”But that’s the thing, Shallan. I don’t want anyone. I want you.
Welcome to the Coppermind, the Brandon Sanderson wiki! I'm Chaos, 17th Shard admin and Coppermind admin, editing this home page with a special message. Well, a special message about a very special person, LadyLameness.
For those of you who don't know, LadyLameness became a Keeper (Coppermind staff) last October, after excellent work in that previous summer on a number of articles. After she became staff, I ended up talking to her on the week of Skyward's release to get to know her better. Then we just... never stopped talking. Never have I spoken with someone so much, and have such a Connection (capital-C, of course) so quick. Maybe we are avatars of the same Shard or something, but we definitely have the same thoughts all the time. It's weird. Like many things in our relationship, it is weird but also spectacular.
We met in December that month after we began talking, crossing the Pacific Ocean to see each other, and every moment with her has been utter perfection. I knew earlier than that first trip how much I loved her, and how she was the one, but that first trip made me realize that so deeply.
Jess, I love you so much. You are wise, brilliant, gorgeous, and absolutely the kindest, sweetest person I have ever known. I probably knew you were the one for me so quick, but it has just happened to take a little while for my brain to realize that I couldn't stand to go a day without you. You make me into my best self (nice Spiritual magical abilities you got there, love). You are my sunshine, my darling, and my love.
I would really like to be your partner for the rest of your life. To be your prince, and to show you how amazing you are every day. I promise you I will treat you like a queen and make sure you know I love you so much. I promise I'll be there in the best times and the worst times for whatever you need.
