RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Ok, the Patreon is launched and the show’s almost done, let’s do this! But before that… some announcements about what’s next after the show recaps are no longer a burden I must toil under. I’m quite eager to get back to writing ASOS chapter essays, with Tyrion IV being the first on the docket. I’ve also got to finish some loose ends, with Part III of Hour of the Wolf and redoing my edit of the True Life of the Spider on the list. And then I’d like to get into Dunk and Egg Part I.

And somewhere in the middle of that, I’ve got some PHOMUs to write.

But in the mean-time, we’ve got Tumblrs.

    Yeah, I’d like to see the CBC not that I don’t mind the other stuff, but the CBC have taught me a lot. And I can’t wait to learn more. They provide free education much as Socrates intended.

    I don’t think Barth has been wrong on anything supernatural. My dream novella would be a diary-style Barth POV story, sort of like how his bit in Fire and Blood has that Lovecraftian-narrator feel to it.

    “one of the major advantages of dragonriding is using their mobility to force your opponent to react to many different places at once, preventing them from concentrating their forces.”

    Add to that the fact that it becomes downright dangerous to concentrate your forces (because they can be wiped out en masse by dragonfire), and you’ve got a real disruption of standard Westerosi military doctrine.

    I prefer to think of Harrenhal as cursed because it is Harrenhal, not all the components being cursed. Because, if nothing else, all that timber and dressed stone and raw materials are going to be valuable when Queen Sansa or Lord Edmure or whoever needs to rebuild the Riverlands. If Harrenhal is torn down and used for scrap, that will break any curse.

    At least I like to think so; because Harrenhal as it exists is just a colossal waste of materials and money – a white elephant if ever there was one; if it were torn down, used for scrap to rebuild where needed, and a smaller, more modest castle built for whichever family winds up owning the land, it would be better for everyone.

    Regardless of how much of a heartless bitch Show!Sansa turned out to be, her and Jon’s reunion was so well done in the show. One of the last flickers of greatness. I legitimately look forward to it in the books. “Oh, it would be so sweet, to see him once again”.

    re: Stark-Lannister alliance post – Every time I see the Stark sigil, I think the neck of the wolf has scales, instead of fur. I know the Stark sigil was designed long before dragons came to Westeros, but do you think the wolf-has-scales is some sort of hidden signal that R+L=J? Or is that how fur was traditionally depicted?

    re: Harrenhall curse removal: LOL! (literally! I laughed out loud at my computer screen).

    Tumblr ask: We all know GRRM can’t math. Can he do Mendelian genetics? What is your opinion on which genes are dominant in Westeros? We know Baratheon always[?] stronger than Lannister, and Dornish is sometimes stronger than Targaryen. Compare the looks of Stark, Tully, Lannister, Baratheon, Targaryen, Martell.

    As for the pie: I can’t imagine a pie with live birds in it to be anything BUT for show. Who wants to eat “Bird Crap Pie?” Gross. I read a historical novel, long ago and name since forgotten, which described how to “feed” the live birds into the pie in a way that they won’t panic and s**t all over the guests when the display pie is cut open – cut a hole in the bottom of the pie crust and gently put the birds in, one at a time, then seal up the hole.

    But still, it sounds like a hazard for the guests’ clothes and heads when the pie is opened and the birds fly out.
