And now for something (somewhat) different…

Hey folks! Still working on Arya X – I’m up to 5,000 words, chugging through the last of the Political Analysis section – so in the meantime, I thought I’d throw up some other stuff I’ve been working on:

 

 

 

RFTIT Tumblr Weekly Roundup!

book2

Hey folks! Arya X isn’t ready yet, because I’ve been crazy-busy preparing for the start of the Spring semester (teaching two classes this semester, one of them is new and takes a lot of prep work). But I have been working on it, and in the meantime I’ve got some great Tumblr responses for you:

Also, if you are interested in the intersection between politics and comic books, I’ve started a new blogging feature you might enjoy.

Chapter-by-Chapter Analysis: Daenerys V, ACOK

“It was not by choice that she sought the waterfront. She was fleeing again. Her whole life had been one long flight, it seemed.”

RFTIT Tumblr Weekly Roundup!

book2

Hey folks, sorry about the two Tumblr Roundups in a row, but I don’t quite have the next chapter ready. Dany V is roughed-out and I’ve got a page written up for Arya X (which I am really looking forward to) – the former should go up on Monday, since I’ll likely be snowed-in this weekend, and the latter will follow.

On the other hand, I’ve got some good Tumblr stuff for you:

RFTIT Weekly Tumblr Roundup

book2

Hey, folks! This one’s going up a little later than normal, because I’m actually still on vacation (although I go back home on Monday and will start seriously preparing to teach next semester then). However, I’ve still had time to add quotes to Dany V, Arya X (which I am incredibly excited for), and Sansa VIII, so work will begin on those shortly.

In the mean time, Tumblrs:

Chapter-by-Chapter Analysis: Sansa VII, ACOK

“It was not the song of Florian and Jonquil, but it was a song.”

Synopsis: Sansa has to clean up Cersei’s mess, deal with Sandor Clegane, and gets some surprising news from Ser Dontos.

RFTIT Tumblr Weekly Roundup!

Happy New Years, everybody!

book2

So as I start to write up the very last chapter in the Battle of Blackwater, and figure out when to schedule the live watching thing before I go off on vacation, I thought I’d throw up a New Year’s Day Tumblr Roundup as a little way of saying thanks for making 2015 the best year to date for Race for the Iron Throne!

Chapter-by-Chapter Analysis: Tyrion XIV, ACOK

 

“Jaime?” he croaked, almost choking on the blood that filled his mouth. Who else would save him, if not his brother?

“Be still, my lord, you’re hurt bad.” A boy’s voice, that makes no sense, thought Tyrion. It sounded almost like Pod.

Synopsis: Tyrion leads the sortie along with Ser Mandon Moore and Podrick Payne, and meets his fate on the bridge of ships.

SPOILER WARNING: This chapter analysis, and all following, will contain spoilers for all Song of Ice and Fire novels and Game of Thrones episodes. Caveat lector.
