Sorry, Tam, this came to mind from your other thread but is probably from beyond where you are. Don't read. Comments are ranging over all the books really.

Cut for Storm of Swords spoilers )

In unspoileriffic news, my very slow GoT rewatch has hit episode 3 and my computer restarted the episode where i left off the last time I watched the dvd, A few minutes into Sansa, Arya and Bran's audio commentary. They just reacted with false shock to Jaime swearing. ("What's the saying? 'The King shits and the Hand wipes.'?" No that's not the saying not the one from the book anyway >:( )

eta: now I'm in a dilemma. They changed some dialogue when Old Nan's talking to Bran. Only they change it from a reference to Bran the Builder to Ser Duncan the Tall. Ser Duncan is the star of 'The Hedge Knight': an asoiaf short story set 80 years before the main series that was in the Legends fantasy anthology and is the story that got me to read ASoIaF in the first place. I love references to that story in AsoIaF. But i hate changes from the book. So.. Dilemma. lol.

Quick post for things on my mind:

  • Livejournal's new homepage: just how ugly is it? PRetty ugly imho but then I didn't use it for much than check if someone had posted on articles.
  • After missing a few I've been taking a look at round 21 of [livejournal.com profile] asoiafkinkmeme and boy to asoiaf prompts like their rare pairs and minor characters and very specific AUs and things.
  • I saw Man Of Steel, the new superman movie and I'm not sure what to thing about it. The first half of the movie is very confusing and the second half is mainly people being punched through buildings. I think it should be applauded for showing superman punching things and not using the old standbys of Lex Luthor and kryptonite but it wasn't quite satisfying for me. It was trying to do way too much.
  • On the HP front there's [livejournal.com profile] samhain_smut wondering whether run again, a fest I've not really read before and I'm hesitant to commit to anything. I'd quite like to prompt for it (if I can slot some of my pairings in to a halloween type prompt) but I'm really hesitant of definately saying I'll sign up for it. I've really got to stop signing up to things because I want to keep HP fandom going and then struggling with the prompt I pick. It's the same thing I did with [livejournal.com profile] fortheloveofhp, picked a prompt I thought I must be able to something for because i like the idea of the fest and now am failing to write for.

Well I've not written much of anything lately. So I decided to finish this off. I started it months ago. Still not sure if i like the concept at all. The stealing thing is very problematic in a consensual/moral sense. And i sort of gave up and rushed to the finish at the end. Definitely not my best work and with that ringing endorsement here we go...

Title: Stealing His Queen
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Jon/Val
Word Count:~1,900
Warnings: Violence, sexy times, violent sexytimes, and severe issues of consent.
A/n: Reviews and concrit very welcome. This was written for [livejournal.com profile] midnightblack07’s prompt at [livejournal.com profile] asoiafkinkmeme “Jon/Val + Jon and Val are wed as per Stannis' command, but she refuses to acknowledge that he is her husband until he "steals" her...”

Just something I was musing on while writing my last asoiaf fic. Jon Really does seem to live by the words, Familly, Duty, Honour.

Normally he's all about honour. Except he'll forsake, honour for duty, breaking his honourable vows if its actually part of his duty to stop the wildings and serve the watch.

And then of course there's familly which trumps everything. Any time we see Jon not go with honour Or Duty its basically because he wants to go help his family.

So ironally considering how Catelyn feels about him, Jon really does seem to live up to tally ideals....

[livejournal.com profile] asoiafkinkmeme is evil and I need to stop spending like my entire day there reading prompts and fills.

Way to many half completed works. I keep getting distracted from my 'romantic' Bran/Meera fic to write kinkier stuff like the Jon/Val/Ygritte fic I posted. Or a Robb conquers the Iron Isles and takes Asha into his bed fic.

And there's a half completed Jon steals Val fic on my  harddrive but that was getting squicky because 'stealing' is sort of like rape. Val's not unwilling but that doesn't mean she doesn't fight it as hard as she can. Jon's got to be worthy of her after all. 

And [livejournal.com profile] luna_plath ?  I also have ideas for a Jon/Arya fic based on your prompt for it. But the setting was King's Landing and in my head its sort of transformed into a Jon/Arya/Dany triangle. Is that ok?

But a lot of these things I may not finish or post and it means no work at all is being down on my poor HP fics.

Title: Something More.
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Jon/Val/Ygritte
Word Count: ~2,500
Warnings: Sexy times. Pegging.(anal sex with strap-on) References to Drugs and alcohol.
A/n: Written for [livejournal.com profile] dr_stonegarden’s prompt at [livejournal.com profile] asoiafkinkmeme which was "Jon/Ygritte/Val - pegging, one after the other." I've done it as a modern AU because I don’t want to try and explain strapons existing in canon. Unbeta and written in the early morning. All mistakes are my own.

Title: Kissed By Fire
Author:[livejournal.com profile] lightofdaye

Warnings: Major Dance with dragons spoilers, sex.
Summary: post-ADwDs. Jon has been betrayed by his men. But the Red God is not finished with Lord Snow and neither is his servant.
AN: I don’t own A Song Of Ice And Fire. I make no money from this at all. The first italicised paragraph is quote directly from A Dance With Dragons by George RR Martin. I blame [livejournal.com profile] luna_plath's oneshots for this. Unbetaed so all mistakes are mine.

There was very little dancing and the dragons didn't appear much.


Major Spoilers beneath the cut )

Initial Thoughts on A Game With Thrones )

Should not have open b-day presents while work still needed to be done. I feel like I might be on a GRRM kick for a while. Given the size of  A Dance With Dragons. Which like Storm of Swords is split into two volumes for paperback publishing. Making it like the hardback so expensive i'm glad i got it as a gift.

Also got the first season of Game Of Thrones on DVD. So I'll finally be able to see if its as good as everyone says. Again struck by the size of the set. It one of those really bulky fold out sets with really nice big pics of the cast on it. But really the 10 55 minute episode boxset? That's larger than DS9 slimline boxset with 26 episodes on it. So dang, lot of packaging.

Last Cool gift was a copy of Turn Coat by Jim Butcher. The eleventh (out of 13 for now) book in the Dresden Files. Which aren't epic fantasy like aSoIaF but more light hearted fun kind of urban fantasy novel about a professional wizard named Harry. (after Houdini) Dresden 

Any way, uni work calls....

Saw this remodelling of the Game Of Thrones series...

Edit: Gorram it. How the hell does this embedding stuff work?

Have a link: http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2011/06/is_game_of_thrones_considering.html

Dang, now I really wish I had Sky Atlantic to see the series. Hope the DVD release is some time soon. Just have to re-read the books until then I suppose...
