Hey folks! So work on the Reach essay of the Politics of the Seven Kingdom series has begun, but I can already tell from the outline that this may be as long if not longer than the Westerlands essay and will definitely need to be broken up into several parts.

Hello, folks! So Tyrion II’s quotes are put in, and I’ve now assembled all the quotes for the Politics of the Reach. Whether I’ll have a finished essay for Monday, we’ll see…depends on how productive I feel on Thursday through Sunday.

Hey folks! So Jaime II is done, Tyrion II and History of the Reach are up next but are basically only at the outline stage.

In the meantime, I’m going through some medical stuff that may well slow down writing speed; I’ll have to wait to see how it affects me to find out how much. That being said, I’m not going anywhere, it’s just going to be a bit slower than normal.

That aside, there’s quite a bit of good stuff on the Tumblrs, so let’s check it out:

 

Chapter-by-Chapter Analysis: Jaime II, ASOS

“…wolves’ work, or maybe lions, what’s the difference?” 

Synopsis: Jaime, Brienne, and Ser Cleos arrive at the Inn of the Kneeling Man, where everybody knows your name.

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.
