Questioner

What does Doomslug eat?

Brandon Sanderson

Doomslug eats mushrooms, among other things... I don't want to say anything more.

Questioner

I know, I was trying to find something that wouldn't be RAFO'd

Brandon Sanderson

Yeah that's actually shockingly relevant of a question, so-- Hmm!

Questioner

If you had to guess, which gender would be Doomslug?

Brandon Sanderson

Spensa thinks Doomslug's a she, and so I would go with that.

Questioner

The way she looks kind of looks like a boy but the way she talks kind of just sounds like a girl so it gets confusing.

Brandon Sanderson

Telling gender on the slugs is not terribly easy.

Questioner

I did have a question about Doomslug and M-Bot, where they came from?

Brandon Sanderson

Those are questions that will be answered, I promise.

Questioner

Are they connected?

Brandon Sanderson

That's what we call a RAFO, Read And Find Out. You will find out; I'm not gonna tell you know. You'll find out some of those answers in the next book.

Questioner

What was your inspiration for making Doomslug? It's a very fun character.

Brandon Sanderson

You know, it was basically me wanting to have a pet sea slug and it just not being something you can do in real life. And I knew I wanted a creature that had some import to the worldbuilding and I settled on something that I thought would look cute.

Questioner

I was wondering when are we going to get Doomslug plushies?

Brandon Sanderson

We are really considering it. We've heard horror stories from our friends who have made plushies. That the prototypes just all turn out terrible. That it's really hard to get someone to make a good plushie. So, we've been scared to try, but we've had some people come and offer.

Isaac Stewart

On the JordanCon website, Deana just posted instructions on how to make your own. 

Brandon Sanderson

Okay, there you go.

Questioner

Is "Doomslug" Doomslug's real name?

Brandon Sanderson

"Doomslug" is not Doomslug's real name but Doomslug will accept that name from Spensa. Doomslug would have a name in Doomslug language.

Questioner

Are you going to try and pronounce that for us?

Brandon Sanderson

No.

Questioner

Is M-Bot intelligent and sentient?

Brandon Sanderson

Yes. M-Bot is, I would say, above animal intelligence but not quite human level intelligence. Oh no, M-Bot? I thought you were saying Doomslug. I would say M-Bot is above human intelligence and is sapient, is sentient.

Questioner

What does M-Bot have against Doomslug and Rig?

Brandon Sanderson

M-Bot treats Rig kind of like you might treat a doctor. Even though he's good for you, you may not enjoy having someone poke around at you.

With Doomslug, it isn't that he has a lot against Doomslug. Doomslug just isn't a good conversationalist. She does a lot of repeating back at you what you say. So getting trapped only with Doomslug would be--

Questioner

Can the second book have Doomslug with a bow?

Brandon Sanderson

In a bow? I will try to get Doomslug a bow.
