RFTIT Weekly Tumblr Roundup and Site Update

book2

Hey folks! It’s that time of the week again, but I also wanted to take this opportunity to talk about the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. So here’s the deal: the regular podcast with Scott will be coming back, and hopefully I’ll be covering the show for a regular publication as with last season.

However, in deference to those folks who will be avoiding Season 6 due to fear of spoilers from the book, I will also be tagging those posts with Season 6 so that you can skip or block those posts, and I will be using only generic images so that you won’t be spoiled by seeing a photo of something from this season.

With that out of the way, what do we have in the Tumblrs?

Hey folks! It’s that time of the week again. Work has started on Tyrion XV (quotes have been put in, but that’s it atm), but that one is going to take some time because I had a nasty cold that really slowed me down this week and I’m running late on some stuff.

So what do we have on Tumblr?
