Treasure Box

billyargh

Well, Grey warned me that all the creative energy he's had lately might rub off. I just pulled an all-nighter making my first piece of art/crafts in I don't even know how long*, one of my "treasure boxes." It's obviously inspired by the Song of Ice and Fire books, and felt/feels (it's not quite finished) like an enthusiastic but angry response to book 3, A Storm of Swords. I wasn't angered by the novel in a critical/social way, but in a purely emotional way, by how much it managed to blindside and disturb my "Tra la la, yum yum, I'm so enjoying my foray into epic fantasy" Constant Reader-self. Which is a powerful thing and I value it, but I also needed to create some kind of response. This box will probably be for sale on eBay at some point if it doesn't get too derivative. Here are a couple of VERY preliminary photos:

Also had a brief but friendly text conversation with Chris about one of those dumb little things that nobody but us would know or care about. I hope we can keep that up some.


*Actually, yes I do, thanks to LJ tags. Three years almost to the day, on April 16, 2009.

That did piss me off - but apparently they aren't doing anything about it until book 6 so at this point I'm just pretending that last scene didn't happen and that the person is no longer among us.

I'm almost wondering if Martin forgot about or regretted that epilogue.

That was my worry still, but so far not so much. She's mentioned incredibly briefly in Dance With Dragons but not in any meaningful way.

P.S. I would pay extra money for a "special edition" where Bran and Theon were also at that wedding.

Ha! Well, Theon's left pinkie isn't doing too well, anyway.
