Swording some things out [Apr. 17th, 2011|12:29 pm]

HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’: A lot to sword out

"On the plus side, the first six episodes are impressively free of sorcery and special effects, and instead rely on the stuff of any deeply dark HBO epic: corruption, deceit, illicit sex (incest in this case), unflinchingly gory violence, and a willingness to kill off a prominent character or two in the service of plot."

Of COURSE they are free of sorcery and special effects; there aren't any in the actual books, either.

I am amused that Twitter seems to hate this review, too.

Christmas in July... [Mar. 3rd, 2011|10:27 am]

It's finally in sight.


July 12, 2011.

Mark your calendars people, we have a release date. And to quote GRRM:

"This date is different. This date is real."

To be honest, he says he hasn't finished the book but it's so close that they feel very comfortable with this release date so we can all cross our fingers and hope and pray.

Can another book be far behind?

Yes, yes it can.

No comments on the casting for the HBO series?

So far:

Eddard Stark: Sean Bean
Catelyn Stark: Jennifer Ehle
Robb Stark: Richard Madden
Sansa Stark: Sophie Turner
Arya Stark: Maisie Williams
Jon Snow: Kit Harrington
Daenerys Targaryen: Tamzin Merchant
Ser Jorah Mormont: Iain Glen
King Robert I: Mark Addy
Ser Jaime Lannister: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Theon Greyjoy: Alfie Alden

I never would have put Boromir and Elizabeth Bennet together, but I CAN LIVE WITH IT. Other than those two, I've only ever heard of Mark Addy, which, well, the other roles I've seen him in are Fred Flinstone and one of the other squires in A Knight's Tale, so...really? King Robert? Mark Addy? Tamzin Merchant apparently plays Katherine Howard on the tv show The Tudors, so I love her already, and I'm looking forward to seeing an actual Sansa before me. Sansa's always been my favorite Stark. She loves books and stories and lives her head in the clouds, just like me! Lastly, I look forward to seeing Richard Madden as Robb Stark....I wonder if they've cast Jeyne Westerling yet...

A lot of the actors also physically look a lot like how imagined the characters in my head, which is good. Sean Bean doesn't look anything like the Eddard in my head, but I can definitely see him doing a very good job.

What are your thoughts so far?

Cersei/Jaime wallpaper [Jul. 13th, 2009|11:07 pm]

Hey there :) I have just finished reading Storm of Swords (in German, though) and I'm officially addicted to ASoIaF now ^^
Therefore, I present you this wallpaper I made of two of my favourite characters, Cersei and Jaime Lannister.

I chose Nicole Kidman as Cersei and Gabriel Aubry as Jaime, I think they fit perfectly :P

Hope you like it!!

Blood of Dragons MUSH Expands [Feb. 7th, 2009|11:42 pm]

Blood of Dragons MUSH, the only A Song of Ice and Fire MUSH in existence (and a game approved by GRRM), now announces the pre-opening of a new area, Sunspear in Dorne. Two years have passed since Sunspear bent the knee to King Daeron Targaryen I. The resistance to the invasion has never quite died down entirely, but Sunspear itself appears to be firmly under the control of the King's cousin, Ser Alyn Velaryon, called Oakenfist, with Prince Marence Martell all but a prisoner in his own castle.

Are you interested in roleplaying a character in Dorne? If so, keep reading.
