All he touches turns to gold after an understandable period of time. This is not a fan metaphorically (or literally) blowing a famous person (and/or their ego). This is someone who was trying to use Wikipedia to find some info on Writing Excuses, and finding no wiki page for it (OH, THE HUGEMANITY!). I tried finding the info I was in great need of on Sanderson's page. I found this:
"where he was college roommates with Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings."
Now, I'm not saying that Brandon Sanderson is directly responsible for Ken Jennings being the only person on earth that can call Alex Trebek his b****, but I am strongly implying it.
