Just read through Ramsay's wedding. Good loving god, poor Jeyne. I feel really uncomfortable after that chapter, so I'm off to cleanse my mind with some Temeraire.

At this rate I'll never get through DwD.

As for the graphic novel? The artwork pisses me off. It's not anime by any means, though you can see some manga influence creeping into its late-90s Marvel/Image Comics style. Some of the background work is lovely, though, and I give credit to their colorist. Eh...but Jon looks like a woman and Catelyn has huge lips and mashed-together uni-boob...

I won't be buying it.

Okay. I finished the book just now. I appreciated Varys' return, and there were a few other events I enjoyed which have by now been discussed to death, so I won't bother making a complete list. Dany's poop was described with a suspicious level of detail. I hope she ends up taking over the new khalasar and that she doesn't suck so much, next book. Maybe she finally loving learned something.

I don't see the issue there was with writing the Meerenese Knot. I guess, looking in from the outside, the whole "oh, Drogon burns some poo poo then carries Dany away from her poo poo city" seems like a really easy solution but maybe it was hard for Gurm to go there. Who can even loving say.

Edit: Hated Kevan's death.

It's too quiet in here, so I've come bearing the fruits of deviantART.

"Khaleesi" by *kenji-dude-guy - My god, what's wrong with your face? "Most beautiful woman in the world" indeed; for the first time ever Dany resembles the product of inbreeding she truly is.

"Jon Snow" by ~BodyTriangle - More like ~BodyRectangle.

"Eddard Stark" by ~Kagura-Satoam - Winter is not the only threat to Eddard Stark's life. Put down the fork, fatty!

"Mother of Dragons" by ~RoxannaMeta -

"Winter is Coming" by ~DreamCadet - Proving once again that artistic talent is not required in order to be a "Deviant."

"MLP Friendship is Coming" by ~Pspynett - SUP BRONIES.

"" by ~Aquasunami - Some lady on the Iron Throne. Jessica from True Blood, I guess.

"Sweet Sister" by ~Corbellot - The art sucks but Viserys' expression is kinda priceless.

"Brienne Portrait" by ~chibi-lilith - My favorite in the bunch.

What other amazing things have this fandom inspired?!

Edit: Hahahahah.

That True Blood crossover is actually a pretty good drawing. Though there's the possibility that it's just because I have no idea what that character is supposed to look like.

e: Well, it could have been much worse. She became a bit anorexic and went from true redhead to dyed redhead, and her hands are awful, but otherwise it's decent.

Look, the only way you can make that drawing look better is if you find an even worse attempt. Then I can compare the two and say, you're right, Nihil, this isn't so bad compared to the turd you just smeared across some blue construction paper.

(No, you really are right, it's not the worst drawing...it's just the worst crossover.)

Keep in mind we were seeing everything from Theon's perspective, and he did not like to dwell too long on the details of what he experienced at Ramsay's hands. He was blocking out a lot of what happened to him as a way of coping with the trauma.

I assume Maytag is referring to the rare double boner effect in which the planets align with your dick causing a second dick to appear.

My problem with AFFC/ADWD is that both books have few moments of genuine entertainment. The plot crawls and you're left with not much to talk about afterward (except for Theon's penis-or-no-penis, of course). I don't enjoy reading when it feels like a tedious chore, and getting through ADWD required me to skip entire POVs. The fact that I didn't miss anything significant by doing so is really telling of the story's quality.

I remain hopeful for the next book.

Modern American comics.

I can see that I guess. The color and shading are more reminiscent of animation, though, and the facial construction/expressions/whatever are also more cartoony than comic booky -- in my opinion, anyway. Not that it matters, because anything like that gets called anime around here.

I maintain that Wizard's First Rule is okay on its own. It's a fine enough fairy tale, even if it's padded with some bullshit. Just don't go beyond the first book.

Or, skip all that and just watch Legend of the Seeker. It's like the Sword of Truth series, but without the propaganda and surprise sex!

I ate a delicious shawarma today. Chicken and "beef", on a bed of lettuce and onions, sauced with hummus, garlic puree, and sesame sauce, wrapped in a warm pita. It was delicious.

You know, I never got around to making a Let's Cook! HBO's GoT Lemoncakes video. I have two recipes to film myself failing at now, I should really do that.

I just made lemoncakes last week and meant to take pictures.

Sumptuous and moist lemoncakes the color of a summer sun, dusted by powdered sugar, the bright citrus flavor dissolving into bliss inside one's mouth. Their gooey, sugary sweetness reminded Dany of the semen now resting in her womb. "When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east," said Mirri Maz Duur. “When the seas go dry and mountains blow in the wind like leaves."

Did you buy it? I could paint that if there's a market. Seriously, Etsy amazes me.

How the Starks keep their ale warm during the long winter.


Dragons are made of fire and iron and yarn.


At last his eyes are as dead as his zombie soul? Quite a jaunty little smirk he's got, though.
