Well, with the big Westerlands essay done, the next writing project is Jaime II of ASOS. That’s going to be a while coming, so in the mean-time, let’s see what we have on the Tumblrs:

Hello folks! Unfortunately, due to a health setback, writing on Westerlands Part III (currently up to 7590 words) and Jaime II stalled out. But now that I’m feeling up to doing a bit of writing, that should be solved in good order. In the mean time, I’ve got some excellent Tumblr stuff to tide you over:

And as always, Race for the Iron Throne Volume II is up on Amazon. Please buy it and/or review it!

Hey folks! Just to let you know that, while work on Politics of the Westerlands and Jaime II continues, updates might be a bit slower for the next few weeks because A. final papers have arrived and need to be graded and B. I’m going on vacation for a couple weeks, and while writing is inherently enjoyable to me, I will have social obligations to family and friends so my time will be a bit more limited.

In the meantime, what do we have on the Tumblrs?

Hello everyone! I hope my American readers had a good Turkey Day and I congratulate my global readers for becoming comparatively more healthy than they were before. Politics of the Iron Islands Part II is done and will be up on Monday, but in the meantime, there’s some excellent Tumblrs for you all:

X-Posted from Tumblr: Why Can’t the Lannisters Buy Westeros?

punkrocknerdfighterasked:

lauren, i was just thinking about how much gold casterly rock actually has, and how they use that gold, and now im asking you this: how much power do they actually have? like if a lord or king of casterly rock decided to like. buy all of westeros and become the emperor of the continent, could he do that? they already own debts from the iron throne. could they like? buy kings’s landing? or the entire industry of westeros and become merchant kings? this sounds silly but like. it’s so much gold

joannalannisteranswered:

@racefortheironthrone estimated that Westeros has an annual GDI of 525 million gold, while I think the Lannisters have an annual income of approximately 6 million gold. The Lannisters’ annual income is a little more than 1% of Westerosi GDI per year. (For comparison, Rockefeller’s entire net worth – not his annual income, but his entire fortune – was 1.5%-2% of GDP.)

Excellent question! My answer will come in two parts, relating to different ways to think about money.

Hello folks, it’s that time of the week again! I’m 5200 words into the Politics of the Iron Islands essay and I have a couple pages roughed out of Davos II, but in the meantime, what do we have on the Tumblrs?

Hello folks! Well, it’s been a lousy week in a lousy year, but I’ve always preferred to react to these kinds of setbacks by redoubling my efforts. (Didn’t hurt that the news was so stressful that I wrote 2800 words of Bran I to avoid having to think about it…) So Bran I will definitely be ready for Monday morning, and in the meantime we have some really good (if occasionally morbid) stuff on the Tumblrs:

Also, in a somewhat off-topic development, I’ve started GMing a tabletop RPG campaign, running the classic Call of Cthulhu adventure, “Masks of Nyarlathotep,” and I’ll be blogging about each session. So if you’re interested, check it out here:
