I guess someone managed to one-up anthropomorphic airplanes, huh. Didn't think it was possible.

The knife had a silver blade, obviously.

Actually, maybe it was a carney knife; it would make sense that his body would be impervious to everything except that made of carnival.

The whole thing reeks of FYIAD-syndrome. Honestly you could replace all instances of "roller coaster" and "coaster" with dragon and the story would be perfectly coherent - still make sense - Still Make As Much Sense As It Previously Did.

Clearly Rodney will have a repentance phase where he works to somehow make up for his wrongdoings via. community service work.

I mean it's not like he'd go through the rest of the book without feeling some kind of regret for the bloodshed. R-right?

Considering their sheer length and mass, I think the fact that they can swim in the first place should be considered a 'power'. I don't see anything that heavy doing anything but sinking straight to the bottom.

Instead of a colon or a butthole of any kind, there is a furnace. Where every "waste material" is put in and it is converted to energy that radiates throughout the body of the roller coaster. Another non-SA friend of mine watching this thread commented that to do that they have to destroy the very atoms to convert matter into energy in that manner, as both fusion and fission always leave a mass of some matter.
Nah, they're just constantly farting. Permanently. Forever.

Could we stick to analyzing the book and not the author? I mean, analyzing aspects of the author through the book is sort of ok, but other than that...

Also, I'm gonna have to try my hand at a bit of writing soon, jeez. Everyone's gonna contribute to Black's legacy~

Ironwheel is going to be a roller coaster, clearly! I mean, come on, this is Miranda we're talking about here.

This sounds like a challenge. So lets all list our top 5 things we think couldn't possibly happen in the story.
1) Railrunner loses. As ironwheel begins his assault on mankind, a new era of global war and turmoil begins. Country after country falls to his mary-sue-like power, until none remain to oppose him. None, that is, except a small band of rebels, led by a certain detective...

2) It turns out the true villain isn't Ironwheel after all. The historians of the Carnival had always wondered: ages ago, their society lived without the technology they take for granted today. No anti-grav (drink) coasters. Then, one day, according to the texts, all the coasters just... Appeared. And no one questioned it; who would, they seemed harmless enough. Little did they know...

3) Railrunner falls in love with a ride that isn't the same species as he.

4) Everything after the jail cell is all a delusion in Railrunner's mind; after getting netted by Detective black, he gradually began to lose energy. Without any rides or carnivals to recharge with, he became helpless and weak in his cell; his sanity slowly slipping away from him. None of the police offers know how to help, nor do they dare; Railrunners insane ramblings often made mention of slaughter and bloodshed. Once, he stared at detective Black, holding out a "hand", and suddenly broke into laughter, screaming "I did it, Thunderbark! I did it!" Right before his death, Railrunner regains a fragment of his sanity, and comes to realize this terrible reality...

(I gotta go to work so no fifth for now, sorry)

Aww, I was really hoping it would be a patchwork monstrosity of a bunch of different rides.

Also, why is it in a wooden boat? What is with the whole "high-tech society" deal, seriously.

It's not that Railrunner doesn't know what Static eats, it's that Mirana doesn't know what Static eats.

One thing, how did they even know about this plan in the first place? It's not as if the Fallen would have just announced it to everyone
Well, actually, ironwheel announced the fact that the military would be entering the city far in advance; the city got hit hard by a depression, and a whole bunch of abandoned buildings gradually got taken over by criminals. The military is basically planning to re-take the city and massively rehaul city infrastructure.

Sounds to me like Miranda was trying to use a synonym for "procured", and thought "Well, "concurred" is kinda similar, I don't even need to use the thesaraus!" Unless the sentence is about battle plans rather than battle supplies, in which case :iiam:.
well, perhaps:

During the last hour, I concurred with some of the basics [basic plans] we could use for our battle plan.

although it really does seem like he's supposed to be acquiring things. probably.
