|I Love Sci-Fi/Fantasy Because...|
...of Gandalf. No wait, it's for Terry Goodkind. But I love Gandalf! But Goodkind is so awesomely great! arg!
I'll start with author Terry Goodkind because, well, he's real. And he gave us the Sword of Truth series, from which two seasons of Legend of the Seeker came. Richard (Cypher) Rahl, Kahlan Amnell and Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander all came from his imagination. And for that, I thank him.
For the other G... Well, Gandalf is the very definition of wizard. He's mysterious, powerful, seemingly ageless, wise and handy to have around when you need to cross a bridge. He's known by many names, but I call him Balrog Slayer.
Wizard's First Rule? If you're gonna dance with a balrog, make it a dance to remember.
Goodkind and Gandalf, both wizards in their own right, are two reasons why I love science fiction and fantasy.
