Panel Discussion on Regional Westerosi Military Traditions

For a while now, I’ve been part of a virtual panel along with JSLAL, History of Westeros, and Lady Gwyn from Radio Westeros, where we swapped ideas about the military traditions of the Seven Kingdoms.

Rather than keeping our thoughts to ourselves, we got together last week and recorded a podcast about it.

Check it out!

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hey folks! Here we are, the last Tumblr Roundup before the final season of Game of Thrones…which I will be covering, albeit in a somewhat abbreviated fashion, focusing more on what I think will or won’t happen in the books than detailed recaps, although I’ll register my opinion about any truly egregious plotting/characterization.

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

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hello, everyone! Apologies for not posting sooner; I’ve been in a bit of a Sisyphean cycle recently where I spend the entire week doing the lecture for the coming week and then restarting again, so haven’t had the most time for writing. In the mean time, I do have some Tumblr goodness for you:

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hey folks! I’m hip-deep in preparing for a brand-new course, so it’ll take a while for me to get through the next (incredibly long) Fire & Blood chapter. After I’m done with the reign of Jaehaerys I, I think I’m going to take a bit of a break from Fire & Blood, finish off (my version of) the Hour of the Wolf, and get back into doing some ASOS chapter essays.

In the mean-time, we’ve got Tumblrs.

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Grading is done, the holidays are almost done, so I finally have some time to catch up on my Tumblring. It’s a bit of a light mailbag b/c of the aforesaid grading and holidaying, but there’s some good stuff here:

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

It’s a little unclear what the long-term impact of the great de-Tumblring of 2018 will be; in the short-term, I built a backup WordPress site so that I won’t lose anything I’ve written (for whatever reason, the backup is taking a while to complete, but most of my posts have been transferred over). So as I wait to see which way the fandom will jump, I’ll keep on answering people’s asks and rounding them up here:

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hello everyone! So, we’re heading into a really interesting period. FIre & Blood Volume I is almost upon us – my plan is to do an extended bullet-point chapter-by-chapter analysis, and then probably a new Hollow Crowns followup essay like I did after WOIAF came out – and then I’ve got the last part of Hour of the Wolf, and I’m writing outlines for ASOS with the aim of getting to the mid-point of the book.

But in the mean-time, let’s look at some Tumblrs:
