RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hey folks! With Catelyn IV, I ran out of banked chapter outlines to write up, so my priority at the moment is writing out outlines up through Jon V (which will officially put me over the 50% mark on ASOS, which is huge for me), and then start writing Davos IV.

But in the mean-time, we’ve got lots of stuff on the Tumblrs.

Guest Appearance on Notacast Podcast

Catelyn XI of AGOT is one of my all-time favorite chapters, so naturally when BryndenBFish and PoorQuentyn got up to that chapter in their chapter-by-chapter podcast I jumped at the opportunity to chat about the Battle of the Camps, the complex political and military position that House Stark finds itself in at the end of AGOT, the dilemmas of Catelyn’s plea for peace, and of course, Northern nationalism.

Check it out!

Guest Appearance on Ranking of Thrones

I’m hard at work on Catelyn IV of ASOS – currently up to 3200 words – but in the mean-time, I’ve got something fun for you. The folks at Ranking of Thrones invited me on to talk about Aegon V, what his reforms were, how his family crises undermined his efforts to change Westeros, and what happened at Summerhall. Enjoy!

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hey folks! With Arya VI done, I intend to push straight on to the next ASOS chapter – I’ve got a hankering to see if I can’t hit the Red Wedding this summer – but in the mean-time, we’ve got Tumblrs.

Race for the Iron Throne Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hello, everyone! Arya VI is very close to being done – 6400 words (including quotes) – but since Sunday was my birthday, I didn’t quite have the time to finish it for Monday. So just to tide you over for a couple days, we’ve got Tumblrs.

(I’ll do Patron Asks next weekly roundup.)

Non-ASOIAF Content: A People’s History of the Marvel Universe Is Back For More

While it probably wasn’t a good idea to spend last week writing two essays as the same time rather than one after the other, I managed to finish this People’s History of the Marvel Universe essay anyway. (Arya VI is not far behind.)

Enjoy!

Race for the Iron Throne Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hey folks, time to check in once again. So the Patreon is officially in its second month – it’s still a bit short of its first stretch goal of an extra essay per month, so if you have a few bucks to spare and would like to see more Race for the Iron Throne content, every little bit helps.

More importantly, work has started on Arya VI, once of my favorite chapters in all of ASOS. This essay is going to be a long one, but I think a good one.

In the mean-time, we’ve got Tumblrs:

Non-ASOIAF Content: A People’s History of the Marvel Universe Going Strong

Despite spending the weekend on a mini-vacation, the flow was with me sufficiently that I was able to write a brand-new People’s History of the Marvel Universe essay from beginning to end.
