    Summary

    Seeing me hesitate, the woman advanced. I saw the golden-haired handmaiden Doreah leap forward from behind her and snake her arm around the woman’s upper chest. My opponent arched her back and her eyes became very wide. Doreah whispered “I’m sorry,” and released her.

    The hilt of the steel whip rolled out of her fingers. She slowly sank to her knees and looked up at me. She was beautiful, and I fancied that in other circumstances we would have been friends, perhaps even lovers. But instead she would now die.

    “Tell John Carter,” she whispered, “tell my beloved husband that my final thoughts were of him, my final regret the child I could not give him. Tell him that I died recalling my love for him. Before you kill me, Dejah Thoris, promise me this.”

    She had received orgasm from my husband, a gift he had denied to me.

    “I will tell him nothing,” I said, and drove my sword through her heart.
    ---

    John Carter and Dejah Thoris of the Burroughs novels are mis-directed to the world of Game of Thrones, fulfilling two separate prophecies. Carter is a Confederate officer; his ideas might be considered unenlightened. Dejah is very good at killing people, but she feels bad about it.

    Summary

    The sun crested the distant cliffs across the vast expanse of sand and dirt in front of them, and in a blink the purple of the Barsoomian night was chased away by brilliant daggers of sunlight. Dejah whooped and shouted “It is three days’ ride— follow me!”

    John Carter does not know much about Barsoom, Tharks, Helium or the struggles of red men. During the three days' ride to the river Iss, and then Helium, he learns.

    Or: John Carter's Crash Course in Socio-Politic Relations Between Barsoom's Major Sentient Races: A Gonzo Ethnography.

    Summary

    "You wished for the deaths of Arya Stark, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow when we viewed the 'Game of Thrones' program from Jasoom. Do not deny what you know to be true. This story fulfills your wishes. You are your own Mary Sue, Dejah Thoris."

    "I am not!" I said, petulantly slapping my hand on the table before me. "Many people of both planets will have wished for the death of Jon Snow. He is portrayed by a stone-faced actor who can say no more than 'Yarmuh kweeeen,' whatever in the name of Iss that might mean. The acrobatic skills of Arya Stark are not believable, such are not taught to assassins. It is she who is the Mary Sue, not I."

    Summary

    I finished reading LXG Volume 6: The Tempest a few weeks ago, and I was immensely disappointed. The story was shit, the characters were flat, and the whole thing was just a real crappy way to end a saga.

    So, I have decided to write my own ending. With blackjack and hookers! In fact, forget the blackjack!

    Starting with the revelation of the Antichrist's identity, I'm putting my own spin on how LXG should have ended out, and hopefully do it with the same creative storytelling spirit that the series started out with.

    Summary

    "This peace simply cannot last, how long do you really think Mars will remain complacent as their world continues to die around them? They came with Venus only because the promise that their world would be spared and instead they've been used as the High Queen's attack dog, if Mars rises the only people that can stop them will be the Union of Storms and it is unlikely that the Queen of Neptune will lift a finger to circumvent the annihilation of the Moon. If she does not move against the Martians the Union of Storms will not move against the Martians and yet at every turn you yield to that woman's demands without guaranteeing that she will hold to the promises she made."

    For only a moment she entertained the idea that her son had in some way been poisoned against her, the time he spent in the company of the young Neptunian Princess warping his perception of the Alliance that the High Queen had fostered over these long centuries but all the evidence was there. Queen Beryl had only been put down by the disobedience of the Martians, three legions descending to Earth in force slaughtering anything and everything in their path until Princess Serenity had married Prince Endymion cementing a peace.
