Destroy All Monsters: HBO's GAME OF THRONES Is Better Than The Books

In which I argued (nine months ago) that the show is better than the books, and the internet (for no reason I can suss out) just found out about it. And now they’re REALLY mad at me. Also, the fact that I mistook Drogon for Dracarys is apparently proof that I never read the books at all. Phew! Read more

"I love the smell of you," he said. "I love your red hair. I love your mouth, and the way you kiss me. I love your smile. I love your teats." He kissed them, one and then the other. "I love your skinny legs, and what’s between them." He knelt to kiss her there, lightly on her mound at first, but Ygritte moved her legs apart a little, and he saw the pink inside and kissed that as well, and tasted her.

She gave a little gasp. “If you love me all so much, why are you still dressed?” she whispered. “You know nothing, Jon Snow. Noth—-oh. Oh. OHHH.”

"I don’t think so." No one had ever told Jon just what lords did with their ladies. "I only…wanted to kiss you there, that’s all. You seemed to like it."

"Aye. I…I liked it some. No one taught you such?"

"There’s been no one," he confessed. "Only you.”

EPIC THRONESINESS. 15 EPIC MINUTES OF IT.

Watched: The Butterfly Effect; Conan the Barbarian (Khal Drogo version)

I’ve probably expanded upon this previously on the blog, but I play mental Butterfly Effect-style games with my own personal history quite a lot. I like time travel and “what if” scenarios generally, and alternate universes fascinate me. (I’m on the fence about whether Blog Space Nine will follow Blogging the Next Generation, but either way, I’m gonna take a victory lap through DS9's mirror universe anthology, because it's just so much effing fun.) On premise alone, then, The Butterfly Effect is built for me. I never tire of mentally altering a single detail of my cummulative past and seeing where the cause-and-effect ripples take me.
