THIS IS IMPORTANT!

Yesterday, I went to Disneyland. Apparently, at their Innovations building, there is a HUGE Avengers exhibit, complete with appearances by Captain America and Thor. Naturally, I ran screaming into said building, camera at the ready. After falling on the ground in front of the array of Iron Man suits and bursting into tears at the Steve Rogers exhibit (exactly like the Smithsonian one in TWS) I got in line to meet the Star-Spangled Man. (The workers were all awesome, they loved that I was such a nerd and so unbelievably excited to meet the Captain.)

My purse has a large Doctor Who pin on it, (not pictured) and the camera man for Steve pointed at it, looked at Cap, and was like “Look at this, it says something about she’s a Doctor?” and Cap points at it and goes "Oh, that looks like a blue police box!" so I said, (I was speechless guys I literally am such a dweeb) "It is." and he said "When I was in England doing an Op in 1942, I was stuck in a burning building and a man named John Smith pulled me out of the building, and then ran into a blue police box just like that and disappeared. Do you know if this has anything to do with that?" 

I DON’T EVEN REMEMBER WHAT I SAID IN RESPONSE. YOU GUYS. THE CAPTAIN AMERICA AT DISNEYLAND WATCHES DOCTOR WHO. HARDCORE REFERENCED DOCTOR WHO. KNEW ABOUT THE WHOLE JOHN SMITH ALIAS THING. CAPTAIN AMERICA WATCHES DOCTOR WHO. I AM IN TEARS REMEMBERING ALL OF THIS. 

anyways, we took pictures, i cried when i walked out, thought you all ought to know. the end. 

This dude knows his stuff.  He’s the same Cap that I saw during my bachelorette party.  When I gave him a drawing as a gift for his upcoming July 4th ‘birthday’, I mentioned I thought he would appreciate it because I knew he had gone to art school before the war.  He GRINNED so big and said "Wow, no one ever remembers that!"  

He also made me punch his shield because I had my Winter Soldier jacket on.  

Disney, KEEP HIM, HE’S PERFECT

Sing a Song of Ice and Fire, #31

This section starts with Tyrion’s trial. Writing these has almost become a trial in itself.

Spoilers abound from here on in for a book published in 2000. Also, I’m not putting pictures in these posts because I don’t want to expose myself to spoilers.

Book Three: A Storm of Swords
Part the Twelfth: from Shae’s betrayal to Sam’s cowardice

Tyrion — It’s the last day of Tyrion’s trial, and he is all emo about it. Then he hears Shae give testimony against him, pretty much lying all the while, and the court buys it. When he finally explodes, he refuses to admit to Joffrey’s murder but instead admits to the crime of being a dwarf. Then he demands trial by combat, Prince Oberyn shocks everyone by standing up for Tyrion (as he told Tyrion he would do), and later tells Tyrion that when he (Oberyn) wins, perhaps Tyrion should visit Dorne. Basically he’s couching it as a request but in plain speak he’s saying “you’d better come to Dorne, because once this battle is over you’re pretty much assured of being killed by someone else if you stay here.” Tyrion seems okay with the idea.

And then, the battle. Because this is a GRRM book, you know someone is going to die horribly (besides the stablehand that Ser Gregor kills accidentally). It turns out to be Oberyn, because he’s so obsessed with getting vengeance for the death of his family that he gets within Ser Gregor’s reach and the Mountain crushes him.

And Tyrion knows he, too, is dead.

Daenerys — Dany now rules Meereen. At court that morning, she discovers that the slaves she left to run Astapor have elected a butcher — literal and figurative — is now in charge. Meanwhile, a Qartheen captain begs for slaves for his people, and Dany says that people may only sell themselves, not anyone else. Later, Ser Barristan says Dany is not like her father, that she isn’t mad, and that he will swear himself into her service. But after learning the truth about Ser Jorah, she is less forgiving and exiles him from Meereen.

This does not make her happy — she knew it wouldn’t. She can’t eat, and even though she has sex with her handmaid Irri it doesn’t make her feel any better. No, she has to make amends somehow, and she’s going to do so by staying in Meereen and ruling as queen.

Jaime — Welp, Tommen is king now, and Ser Kevan is giving him papers to sign. This makes him happy… he’s eight, after all, and doing a big, important job. Jaime has learned that he can’t fight for shit with his left hand, thanks to his old friend Ser Addam Marbrand, the head of the Gold Cloaks.

Steelshanks is leaving King’s Landing with a girl claiming to be Arya Stark, off to marry Ramsay Bolton. But Jaime is smart enough to know it’s not Arya — he met her, after all — though he does think that Arya’s dead. Also happening in King’s Landing: Ser Gregor was poisoned by the late Prince Oberyn’s blade and Pycelle has no way to stop the poison.

And then, as Jaime and Cersei talk later, it comes out that it was Joffrey who sent a killer after Catelyn Stark. Not that it matters now; both of them are dead. Cersei, though, truly believes Tyrion killed her son, even though we (readers) know this is not the case. Cersei, in her grief, goes to Jaime for sex, but Jaime turns her away — men of the Kingsguard do not have sex. Cersei is pissed off, and more so that Jaime believes Tyrion to be innocent — Jaime still loves his younger brother, more so than Cersei ever did.

Finally, Ser Loras admits to Jaime that he believes Brienne is probably innocent. Jaime gives Brienne a sword of Valyrian steel, the best there is, and charges her with finding Sansa Stark and keeping her safe from harm. And, as he fills out his page in the great book of the Kingsguard, he realizes that he controls his own destiny — “He could write whatever he chose, henceforth.”

Wait… am I actually ROOTING for Jaime Lannister?

Jon — Jon remains in the ice cage, cramped and freezing. Slynt releases him, saying that he can’t just hang him because of various reasons and instead offers him the opportunity to prove his loyalty to the Watch by parleying with Mance Rayder. Or, more precisely, to kill him, even though Rayder expects a parley.

On the other side of the wall, Jon meets up with Tormund, who seemed honorable before. They share a drink as they walk to Rayder’s camp, and once there, Jon sees that they’ve found the Horn of Winter, the one that can take down the Wall. The thing is, as Rayder reveals, he doesn’t want to use it. He wants to hide on the other side of the Wall, because the Others are coming.

So is someone from the East. The wildling warriors are slaughtered, including Rayder himself, and Jon stays behind to guard his widow Dalla as she gives birth. And the man who led this attack… was King Stannis.

Arya — Arya and the Hound stop at an inn, where they find Polliver, the Tickler, and a squire — the first two being men that Arya prays for the death of. They relate that Joffrey is dead, and a few stories about who might have done it, and then, suddenly, there’s a fight. The Hound, though drunk and wounded, fights admirably, and Arya helps too, stabbing the squire and, after the Hound kills Polliver, she catches the Tickler unawares and kills him.

The squire has Arya’s old sword, Needle. She kills him with it. Then the Hound tells Arya they’re headed for the port town of Saltpans, with the goal of getting to the Vale of Arryn (home of Lady Lysa, Arya’s aunt) by sea.

But the Hound is injured badly, and Arya, under his direction, helps treat his wounds before he exhorts her to kill him. She refuses to let him die so easily and leaves on her horse. Six days later, in Saltpans, she tries to find passage North, to the Wall and her brother, but no one will take her, even if she offers to work. That is, until she learns that the ship she’s dickering with is Braavosi, and she has the iron coin from Jaqen H’ghar. Valar morghulis.

Samwell — Gilly is helping to nurse Mance’s son. Mance himself isn’t dead, it turns out, just imprisoned. Sam suggests to Jon that he send Gilly to his father, Lord Tarly, hoping that it will prove to his father that he’s a man, if Gilly lies and says the baby is Sam’s (which she probably would do). It turns out also that King Stannis refuses to let the wildling women be brutalized, and that Sam has kept Bran’s secret even from his own brother.

Jon, meanwhile, has taken on the role of master-at-arms, working with the recruits. The entire Watch is voting on a new Lord Commander, and with more than a half-dozen candidates this is taking several days. If Ser Denys Mallister and Cotter Pyke refuse to work together — and they hate each other — Lord Janos very well could win the office. The men of the Watch try to convince Sam to talk to the candidates, but Sam admits he’s too cowardly to do so.

Looking Forward

I think at this point I was wondering what was going to happen with Tyrion, but I also know that, in the coming chapters, I firmly join Team Stannis. He’s already doing a good job here, treating his captives relatively humanely. But what’s he going to do about Jon Snow?

And Then There’s This

I still stand by my assertion that Jaime and Brienne end up together. I now also predict that she gets a POV in the next book.

Stark Ranking

  1. Jon
  2. Arya
  3. Sansa
