    Summary

    “Could I have tonight with just Steven,” she asks, and fights the urge to withdraw her eyes from his. The expression she expects to harden just softens before her.

    “Of course,” he says, taking her hand in his, “but the thing is, we don’t do things on our own so much anymore.”

    Layla navigates loving the package deal.

    Summary

    "I am the queen of spades, I am the wasp that stings, I am the dark serpent. I am the invulnerable animal who passes through fire and is not burned." - Elena Ferrante, The Days of Abandonment

    Rhaella thinks perhaps the gods, any gods, have heard her prayers, when Aerys vomits up blood in bed. (Aerys dies before the 'trial' of Rickard and Brandon Stark can commence. In King's Landing, Rhaella at last finds her footing. On Dragonstone, Elia makes her preparations. And in the Tower of Joy, Lyanna comes to a series of cold realizations).

    Summary

    There was some space between what the Imps said the rules were, and what most folks actually did, especially on an off-lane wasteland like Ferrix. The trouble was, if you lived in that space long enough, it started to feel comfortable. Normal. Fuzzy around the edges, like maybe the rules weren’t really the rules. But just because power doesn’t always enforce the rules doesn’t mean that it can’t, or that it won’t. It can, and it will.

    Always.

    It’s just a matter of when it happens.

    Summary

    With the conclusion of HBO’s sprawling fantasy-historical epic Game of Thrones, which spans the length of the War of the Five Kings, the Targaryen invasion, and the rise of Bran the Rebuilder, we’re at last able to place it within the context of other historical retellings. Let’s start by breaking down the historical origins of six of the show’s major players.
