OOC: You are WELCOME, and THANK YOU ALL SO SO MUCH for reading this dinky little blog!

OOC: Finally finished with A Dance With Dragons…

…so I’ll be addressing a few questions I wasn’t sure how to answer before.

Also, I’ll probably post a (properly forewarned) spoiler-filled rant with all my various thoughts on the book in a little while. 

Oh, and the codeword is “GROLEO”.

I’ll just come right out and say it for the record:

I like Ros.

I don’t like every scene with her in it, but I do like the new character. In fact, I happen to like Ros a LOT more than Show!Shae. I can’t stand what little we’ve seen of Show!Shae. I actually was kind of hoping Ros would follow Tyrion and take on the role of Shae, becoming the new Hand of the King’s lover/whore/what-have-you. It would certainly have legitimized the attention given to her character in the early half of the season, and well, frankly, I just like her personality a lot more Show!Shae’s or even Book!Shae’s (not even taking into consideration all the junk that happens in A Storm of Swords, of course). 

So, again, I like Ros. I thought the show’s use of her and other women for sexposition (or exboobsition, if you prefer) was clunky and tiresome at times. Still, I hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of her. I hope the showrunners find new and more interesting ways to use Ros to advance the plot and further develop the main characters.

But haters gonna hate.

Thoughts?

Done for the night / Spoilers?

Just to let y’all know, I save up some questions for later. Some are about a week old that I still haven’t answered. It’s not because I don’t like you, it’s because I haven’t thought of anything remotely witty/cruel to post as a reply. So please keep asking away; the more the merrier. I promise I won’t neglect them. I will answer them…eventually.

Also, I’m curious to know my readers’ spoiler preferences. Are there too many spoilers on this site? Or should I post spoilerish questions/answers after the jump with a warning beforehand, or what?

Sorry for the lack of posts

At first I was just being lazy. Then I went out of town.

Your regularly scheduled snarkiness will now resume.

OOC: Am I just a dick on this blog?

'Cause it's starting to feel that way…

A little finger helped to nudge my follower count over 150.

It’s hard to believe so many people could worship so cruel a god as me. But do not think for a second that such acts of veneration could sate my lust for blood. Remember: winter is coming, not mercy.

OOC: THANKS GUYS! Y’ALL ARE AMAZING!

OH, AAAAND MY OTHER SITE COULD USE SOME LOVIN’ TOO!

OOC Confession

I haven’t even finished the prologue to A Dance With Dragons! I was completely broke when the book came out, and I was told I could borrow my friend’s copy when she was done with it. But first she loaned it out to my sister and brother-in-law. Which is stupid because my sister only started reading ASOIAF just a year or so before Game of Thrones came out, and I’ve been waiting for over FIVE years to get the next book.

Anyway, I’m also right in the middle of The Dresden Files, which, if you haven’t read, you HAVE TO. They’re amazing. Also, they’re not doorstoppers. So they happen to look a lot more appealing than the big gray tome in front of me right now. So, yes, I finally have a copy of ADWD, but it’s gonna be a long, slow read for me.

LONG STORY SHORT: PLEASE DON’T ASK ANY MORE QUESTIONS SPECIFICALLY CALCULATED WITH THE EVENTS OF A DANCE WITH DRAGONS IN MIND! 

(I’m looking at you, people who keep on bringing up Ramsay Bolton.) 

p.s. I’ll try and read quickly, and I’ll announce on here when I’m finished with the book. 

OOC:

I think I am now officially one of the only Ask Game of Thrones related blogs that makes anything close to sense.

Other Ask GOT blogs: Carry on with your crazy antics. They may be confusing and reality-distorting, but they sure are funny as hell.
