Magic In A Box

I think the Game of Thrones box is finished, and now I feel sort of empty even though it's basically just a piece of fan art. I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing, especially since I've seen fan art that touched my own heart, but I surely can't take full credit for it and I don't know whether I can sell it on eBay. Not sure if I want to; even if it's a response to someone else's creativity, it's the first creative thing I've done in three years. I'll be posting photos, at any rate, possibly more than anybody wants to see. It's a detailed object.

When I said the ending of A Storm of Swords disturbed me and made me kind of angry? I did not mean I thought the novel should have ended differently. I value a story that can make me feel like that. I don't find them very often. I just needed to take a break and read some nice fiction about nice people who just do normal things like throwing their spouses down wells, and also Me and Dean: A Love Story by Jerry Lewis (more on that later). And apparently I also needed to make a box. But I'm starting to miss all those dreadful Lannisters, Starks, Greyjoys, and Targaryens, not to mention the Hound whom I love though I don't know why, and I'm about ready for further punishment. (Speaking of grrm fan art, has everyone seen this amazing map of Westeros?)

Good God, what a fanboy I have become in my old age. It serves me right.

nice work :)

only now i have (Doc Misery) type visions...

"What's in the box Doc?"

doc:: *innocently* oh toes and nails and such."

*vague moans from closet*

"toes AND nails?"

doc: "Don't ask."

"Oh, ok."

*Louder frantic moans*

doc *shaking head* "I told you George; HE DID NOT!"

*picks up box* "Excuse me I just have to"-

voice from closet. "Help!"

etc, etc.

Ooh, I had NOT seen that map of Westeros. I may be looking at that for quite some time.

Thank you!

The Hound is an innately sympathetic character. Much of the reason he is the way he is on the outside is due to his brother and what he did to him. He shows moments where the bitterly wounded but truly good man shows through (mainly in his interaction with Sansa).

Hello, I just wanted to let you know that I just learned about your gender identity (yeah I'm a little bit late ^^) and that totally made my day. I've been questionning my gender identity for the past few months and now identify as a trans guy. I am so happy that I can relate even more to an author that I've admired for years.

I think I'm gonna re-read your books now :p
