  2. Happy birthday!

    I would totally give Spook elocution lessons!

    ReplyDelete
  3. It's Saddeus' birthday, and I think what he really needs is a Pie in the Face. He needs to lighten up! :)

    ReplyDelete
  4. Breeze needs the new Pat Rothfuss book.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Happy Birthday Ham!

    My gift would be a copy of Plato's "The Republic".

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'd give Kaladin a year of professional counseling.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I would attempt to give Szeth a big hug.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I would give Kaladin a duck because there will probably be a magic system that uses those.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I would give Kaladin a controllable death spren to go with his binding one

    ReplyDelete
  10. I would give Breeze an army of Mistborn Llamas and see what happens.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I would give a gift to Sazed - a copy of Douglas Adams' "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy".

    ReplyDelete
  12. Happy Birthday!!!

    So on Elend's birthday... I would give him a couple of philosophy books, a few extra sets of white suits (they can get dirty easily I can imagine), and a month's supply of ingestible metals. :-)

    Nice contest!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Happy birthday.

    I'd give shallan a way to get out of family debt so that she may study with Jasnah without feeling torn in her responsibilities. And i'd give Kal the day off for once :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I would give Vin the gift of Being Awesome.
    What? She already has that! Dangit!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh, I thought of something else, I would give Shallan assertiveness training.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I would anonymously give Sazed a box of cookies laced with Prozac to help him out of his depressed state in the hero of ages

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would (anonymously) give Dalinar some festoons to adorn his Shardplate.

    Great contest :-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would give Hoid a hug because I bet he misses a lot of hugs and birthdays what with being all over the place all the time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. You know those big "cat condos" with the perches and little caves? I'd get a giant one for Vin. She does like to perch!

    ReplyDelete
  20. This comment has been removed by the author.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Vin. She'd get a big bottle of fancy french wine.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would give Sazed a holy bible, have fun with that one buddy!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'd give Shan a 1-Up Mushroom, so that Vin could kick her ass again.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would give Kaladin a stethoscope for him to hang somewhere to remind him of what he's made of when it becomes too easy to forget that.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would give Elend a copy of Justin Bieber's album, something tells me he would like that...

    ReplyDelete
  26. To Jasnah, I would send an excessively cheerful birthday clown. Just because watching her squirm would be highly entertaining. I reckon she'd go thirty seconds before soulcasting him into "strawberry jam."

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'd give TenSoon a titanium wolf skeleton.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Happy birthday, and many happy returns.
    How about we get poor old Cett an electric wheelchair? Maybe with mountain bike wheels for the poorer roads he would be dealing with.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Kaladin could do with a Faceless Man from A Game of Thrones ;) A man could say a name.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I guess a copy of Rebecca Black's 'Friday' for TenSoon would be great too

    ReplyDelete
  31. Happy birthday! <3

    I would give Dox a bowler hat.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Happy Birthday!!!

    I was going to give Kaladin something, but it seems everyone else already has. That greedy basterd. So out of spite I'll just keep my Shardblade and box set of Scrubs all to myself.

    ReplyDelete
  33. For a serious gift I'd give Kaladin a Shardblade spear, because that would just be awesome.

    For a more lighthearted gift Shallan would get Strawberry jam.

    And everyone in WoK would get more Wit, because that is the best gift anyone in that world could get.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Happy Birthday to Sazed! I am giving you Wonder Woman's bracelets of Amazonium. They store VIRILITY- giving you your balls back!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Happy Birthday for u!

    In Mistborn, i would give Sazed a Kindle

    and in Stormlight Archive i would give Dalinar some Vaccation.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'd give Shallan's brother some Celebrex for his joints, so he could stop killing little creatures.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would give the King's Wit a whetstone. You know, so he can stay sharp! A-HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    ...

    Well, Wit would've appreciated the lame pun.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'd give Kaladin some new sandals so he can stop wearing that poor nameless dead bridgeman's pair.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Sazed could definitely use the entire Wheel of Time series including the last unreleased book!

    Happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would give Clubs a birthday present because he REALLY needs one. I would give him a cloak with a silver lining to remind him that every cloud has a silver lining. Being a realist is one thing, but being depressing is something else. He needed to lighten up "a little," It's not that I want to turn him into Mary Sunshine, I just want him to have the occasional positive thought. Hopefully whenever he put on or took off his cloak, he would see the silver lining in it and that might remind him that situations in life may have one too.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would give Syl a fish kite, I just seems like something she'd like but I guess she'd need a birthday first wouldn't she. Hmm...

    Happy Birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would give Sazed his manhood back. That way he could have some fun with Tindwyl :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'd give Vin an iPod. Just throw on some John Williams or Hanz Zimmer, and soaring through the city at night just got a lot cooler.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hope you have a fabulous b-day!

    WoK: I'd give Szeth's oathstone to Dalinar. Ironic, no? But seriously, I think Dalinar could use an uber-assassin warrior to help unite the squabbling princes. Besides, there's this jerk named Sadeas who needs a serious beat down followed by a lunch date with a chasmfiend.

    Also, I'd give Hoid my phone #. If I could manage to find the blasted man, that is. *swoon*

    ReplyDelete
  45. I would give Rock a Braun elecTric razor, iT would make everyone else more comforTable when The gianT man shaved Them!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Happy birthday!

    I would give Szeth his freedom!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'd give Sazed a birthday card. Then again, he'd trash the thing after storing what it said in his metal minds. Hmm...maybe I'll just tell him happy birthday in person...

    ReplyDelete
  48. What, no love for the Lord Ruler? I'd get him "Chicken Soup for the Misunderstood and Overburdened Evil Ruler's Soul." He's under a lot of pressure and hopefully this will lighten the load a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'd give Shallan a computer with the entire Wikipedia on it so she could fill in her knowledge gaps quickly (albeit superficially).

    I'd give Sadeas a swift kick in the arse.

    I'd give Dalinar his memories of his wife.

    I'd give Jasnah a boxed set of C. S. Lewis's works. I know they are about Christianity rather than her world religions, but I'm curious how she'd react to his arguments.

    I'd give Rock a spice rack.

    More later when I have some time to think. :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Happy Birthday. Love your shirts.

    I would give Ashir (I-8, WoK) a set of pots and pans, and maybe a spice rack full of spices. He's a good cook, and no good cook should go without a spice rack or shiny new pans. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would give Spook a pimped out pair of Oakley sunglasses to where after he flares to much tin.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I would give Kelsier some colorful flowers, complete with green leaves. I think he would appreciate them.

    Happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I would invent a new religion for Sazed to study!

    Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Spoiler innuendo in this post so be warned:

    I would give Spook a modern day penny and a grinder to make it into dust. I've always wondered what is actually in them and this would be a rather entertaining way to really find out.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'd give Spook a HUGE amount of Larasium as he builds his new world.

    Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I would probably give a roll of coins to each of the Kelsier, Vin and Elend. Just to see what they could make of them.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'd give Shallan a set of rare books for her family's library :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Vin is absolutely awesome so of all of the characters, I would choose to give her a towel for her birthday so that she knows where it is- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technology_in_The_Hitchhiker%27s_Guide_to_the_Galaxy#Towels - It's also a sort of appropriate weapon for someone who needs to travel light, occasionally slip something discreet under a fancy dress, and wouldn't carry anything metal. Medieval technology probably doesn't make great towels like this one anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I think Elend could use John Locke's "Two Treatises of Government"

    ReplyDelete
  60. Ill give Vin an alloy that would make it possible for her to move into the future and bring me back a copy of A Memory Of Light....

    ReplyDelete
  61. I would give Marsh some Visine.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I would give Sazed a scholarship to get a religion major at the college of his choice

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'd Give Hoid (he's there, look him up) A Tuba. He's the kinda guy that could rock one of those.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would give Szeth his own oathstone.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'd give Spook a copy of Elements, a Visual Exploration:

    http://www.amazon.com/Elements-Visual-Exploration-Every-Universe/dp/1579128149

    ReplyDelete
  66. Assuming it was Vin's 21st birthday, I'd give her a bottle of Goldschläger, so that she could – over a few drinks – reflect on her past achievements, and celebrate the great things she has accomplished.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I think I would give Kaladin's bridge crew a bunch of light blue/green coloured contact lenses and give then all blonde hair dye. After they sneak away from the armies, the real birthday party would begin.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I would give Kelsier a daisy because of that picture of Mare's that he always carried.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'd give Vin a simple earring. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'd give Sazed all of Frank Herbert's Dune books to study

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'd give Hoid a ball and chain tied to his ankle until he explains what is going on. :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'd give Vin from Mistborn a kevlar vest.

    ReplyDelete
  73. My happy birthday wishes would go to Hoid and I would gift him with a rewards credit card. All that travelings gotta eventually pay off. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  74. Zane, because then the voices wouldn't tell him to kill me.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I would give Human (the koloss) a 300XL "Happy Koloss Head Munching Day" T-shirt. (Or maybe a Fear the Llama shirt...)

    ReplyDelete
  76. I would give Kelsier the T-shirt that says "There's always another secret." Then he could just point at it whenever the need occurs (every few minutes or so).

    ReplyDelete
  77. I'd give Wit an instant replay button-- <.<....>.> Like you wouldn't!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Christian AndersonMarch 24, 2011 at 8:58 PM

    I would give TenSoon the bones of Goku (assuming that Goku has died of old age or by an inhaled chicken bone or something).

    ReplyDelete
  79. happy birthday.

    I would give Ruin the entire "Twilight" universe. Let him destroy the hell out of that!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I would give Raoden a time machine so he could go forward in time and be in The Way of Kings.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I'd give Breeze a life so then maybe he wouldn't have to focus on his amazing fashion sense :-)

    ReplyDelete
  82. Merry Christma-- oops, um, Happy Birthday!

    I would be certain to give Dalinar a signed copy of The Way of Kings. Just to mess with him a little more.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'd give Sazed the collected teachings of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Happy Birthday!

    Hmmmm......I would give Sylphrena a little notebook, so she could write things down before she forgot them >_> Best to remember things BEFORE the heat of the battle, eh?

    ReplyDelete
  85. Happy Birthday! I'll go give someone else a present.

    Who? Spook.
    What? A pair of Horatio's shades. (CSI: Miami)

    ReplyDelete
  86. I second Kyle... Give Ruin a one-way ticket to the world of Twilight. Happy birthday, here's some sparkly vampires and emo teenagers to ruin!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I would get Vin a plastic earring from Claire's.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I would give Vin some Chromium, Nicrosil, Cadmium, and Cerrobend just to see how she would put them to use.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I would give a present to Kaladin because he's just so awesome! And I would probably make it a Shardspear of sorts :)

    (email: khyberelessedil@hotmail.com)

    ReplyDelete
  90. Happy, happy naming day!

    I would give pre-battle of Luthadel Tindwyl some Larasium so that she could become Mistborn and not die. That was such a sad turn of events in the story and she and Saze deserved more time together!

    *sniffle*

    ;o)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I would give Kaladin a 5-hour energy, for all those bridge runs. Wowz. Or maybe a Lightsabor. Hmm maybe I would give him some Thors Hammer. Love Ya And Happy birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I would give Kaladin a present, poor guy needs one.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Fun birthday idea!
    Shallan could probably use an Emily Post book on manners and etiquette, but I would probably get the Lord Ruler a monopoly game for those long, boring hours of world-controlling godhood.

    ReplyDelete

    (sorry about the double post, previous one gave me a weird identifier)

    ReplyDelete
  95. Happy Birthday! :D

    I would give Kaladin a yellow convertible corvette. Because no matter how cool your magic is, a corvette is still amazingly nice to drive...and a manual on how to make gasoline...

    ReplyDelete
  96. Yes indeed, happy birthday!
    I'd give Marsh his own sequel, written of course, by Brandon

    ReplyDelete
  97. I would give Elend a kindle or some kind of e-book. I would also get Ham some super awesome cutoff sleeve shirts. Maybe some a Metallica shirt and a Harley Davidson shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Happy birthday
    I would give Vin Hermiones time turner so that she could go back in time and save Elend and herself

    ReplyDelete
  99. I would give Vin a dark blue/purple felt or velvet waistcoat. Not sure why, but I think it'd suit her.

    Oh, and a happy bathday :)

    ReplyDelete
  100. I'd give Syl a hug! She just seem so lovely :-)

    ReplyDelete
  101. Happy Birthday!!

    I would give Wit/Hoid...a whoopie cushion. I'm sure he would have a blast with it.

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. First of all: Happy Birthday!

    I would give
    Szeth-son-son-Vallano a hammer, to crush that damned oathstone

    Rock a gasmask. He could lend it to the airsick lowlanders.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I'd give Marsh (Mistborn) a pair of sunglasses. He definitely needs them.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Happy Birthday!
    For Syl: a diary, so she won't forget things come next cycle (if next cycle there is ^^)

    ReplyDelete
  105. I would give Mare an extra atium geode.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I would probably give Spook some Ray-Ban sunglasses, or a positive self image how to guide.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I would give Ruin Terry Goodkind.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I think Kaladin needs a rain poncho or a good windbreaker.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I would give Clubs an exploding cigar. It's appropriate for a Smoker and it might just crack his grumpy facade a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Happy birthday Syl! Please enjoy this copy of The Macmillan Visual Dictionary!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I'd have to give Rock a tin of moustache wax for those sideburns. He could do strange and wonderful things with his humaka'baa... humakabanana...

    ...muttonchops.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I'd give Wit a magic carpet so he could more easily antagonize the surrounding populace.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Happy B-day,
    incredible contest but really I skimmed through and not one person did i spot who supported vin. Just give her a dress and some medal and a evil guy to beat up and it would be the best birthday ever,

    ReplyDelete
  114. I would give Syl a pinwheel. To keep herself occupied while surfing the breeze.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I keep trying to think what I could get for Marsh. I guess if nothing else, I'd give him a hug, let him know how big a hero he is, and leave him with a couple decks of cards to pass the next few millenia.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Happy birthday!

    I would give Royal High Cartographer Isasik Shulin 24 global positioning satellites (in orbit, of course), computing equipment to make use of the data collected by the satellites, electricity generators to power said equipment, and the technical manuals to allow him and his staff to use it all. All so he could make even more precise maps of his world.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Happy Birthday!

    I would give Vin the entire (completed) Stormlight Archives series. And since she doesn't like to read, she would give them right back. :) Then I'd give her a gun. Cause it'd be cool.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Happy birthday to you! I may be a little late for the contest, but tis sounded kind of fun, so here goes.. For Kelsier, in honor of Mare, I would give him a dozen red roses in a black vase so they would keep longer and a Bo staff so he could do even more damage to the wicked. Vin, I would get a brand new set of glass knives, a bunch of different metal compounds, and a huge set of vials and a stand for them with a chemistry set for her metal experiments. Lastly, my other top three favorite character from Mistborn, Spook, I would get him a pair of Cyclops' ruby quartz sunglasses in case he needed to flare any more tin, a copy of Sun Tzu's "The Art of War", and a glass sword, just cuz it'd be sweet! ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  119. Happy Birthday!
    I would give Kaladin a spear sized scalpel, that way he wouldn't have to choose.

    ReplyDelete
