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:

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.

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:

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:

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:

The Hour of the Wolf, Part II

credit to Titch-IX

The next hour passed in a blur of judgement. The men in chains were led before the bench one-by-one, and kneeling next to the headless bodies, fell to their knees and begged to take the black. Most were lesser men, Bollings and Horpes and Musgoods who had been left beached when Borros Baratheon’s tide had suddenly receded on the Kingsroad, but Munkun noted with interest when Ser Perkin the Flea stepped forwards. The swindler who gulled an entire city with promises of a world turned upside down collared at last, the golden voice that swayed entire garrisons of loyal men to treason, reduced to stammering pleas for mercy, he mused, and rushed to jot down the line in the margins of the trial records lest he forget before he returned to his manuscript.
