Hey, remember when SPOILIILILILILILILIERS

I don't usually draw Jon because he's sooooo popular. I'll stick with Lommy Greenhands thank you. I do however have a great affinity for the brief and very compelling appearance of Qhorin Halfhand. Qhorin. You may have half a hand, but you have all of my heart. And a killer pony tail.

Speaking of hands, George Martin really hates hands. I'm trying not to be a spoiler here. People always talk about the volume of death in these books, but if you add up all the real death there's not as much as you would think. But if you were to tally the amount of hand death? There should be a museum honoring the maimed hands in this book.

This part is also the first appearance of one of my favorite characters, the Lord o' Bones. I had planned on jamming him in, in some way but, I'll do something with him later. Doesn't everyone love the wildlings?

YES! Thank you for noticing! People always talk about these books like it's non-stop rape in a sea of dead main characters, even though it's simply not true! I am so sick of people complaining that the author killed all the "likable" characters.

It is certainly more real death than most people are used to. But like, not that much more. I think it's pretty reasonable. Thank you for backing me up!

So... I'm on Clash of Kings.
Jon's hand= burned
Qhorin's= don't ask.
Davos'= maimed
The random guy who wanted to surrender to Tyrion and gave him that glove's hand= gone.
Probably more and probably more to come.

Jon is too popular by half, tbh. Qhorin was is a total BAMF.

And oh god, now that you point out the hand maiming.. I just. Want to retitle the series A Song of Ice and Fire and FUCK WHERE MY HAND GO

Jon is popular, and he's so...cookie-cutter to be popular. Dany too.

Oh god, he really is. And tbh, I liked Dany in the beginning... but she just devolved into a complete and utter Mary Sue and now I just can't with her.

:iconsir-heartsalot:
Sir-Heartsalot Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012
Haha I didn't like Jon in the beginning but I'm more into him now that he makes more mistakes. Dany...she's definitely quite the heroine now. I'm still rooting for either, I guess. Just not as excited about them to personally succeed as I am characters like Tyrion or Sansa.

:icondee-baby:
Dee-Baby Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012
Yeah, I mean now that he has actual things to be upset/worried/fretting about, I find Jon to be a lot more... bearable. ngl, I skipped his chapters every now and then entirely

I guess the same goes for Dany? I mean, as of next book she should have something to do, besides just waiting around in Mereen for the rest of the plot to catch up with her. We'll see I guess.

Sansa is one of those characters who I've liked/disliked and am just generally torn about. In her current situation, I do find her plot to be really interesting, however. I can't wait to see what she does.

Tbh, the thing I am looking forward to reading the most next book (should those chapters be included) is Sam's time in Oldtown. I find that cast of characters (Lazy Leo, the Sphinx, etc.) to be really interesting and I just want more of them. ;u;

SKIPEPEPEPED?! SKIPPED?! I'm going to pretend like I didn't read that.

Waiting around in Meereen for something to do is right. I'm a little worried about her next adventure. I mean. She's a queen. With a dragon. How long of a side adventure is this going to be? It would be like if Jon were Lord Commander, and then joined the wildlings for all that time.

The more time goes on the more I'm really appreciating Sansa and her unique perspective in a fantasy story. And I'm very interested to see what's going on with Shadrich the Mad Mouse.

Sam's time in Oldtown, pft screw Lazy Leo or the Sphinx. PATE. THE PIG BOY. What. The. Faceless.

I can't help it, he can just be so dull sometimes, hahah..ha... /hangs head

Yeahhh. I'm with the upcoming books, things will get moving again. Just in general, really. I mean, there's 2 books left so shit most definitely will have to go down.

AHAHA PATE OH GOD. SAMWELL, TREAD CAREFULLY.

But oh man, Winds of Winter better give me loads of Martell/Dornish thing. I must needs some Sand Snakes action. Also, I recently stumbled upon the theory that Alleras the Sphinx is in fact Sarella, one of Oberyn's snakes. Which. I didn't pick up on that at all, and just the idea of a cross-dressing archer BAMF infiltrating the Citadel just for the sake of learning things? That makes me really happy, haha.

:iconsir-heartsalot:
Sir-Heartsalot Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012
Oh yes haha. I've known for awhile that Alleras and Sarella were one and the same. It's not a theory as far as i'm concerned it's just a fact.

What, Qhorin is a Targaryen?! Or..just old?? xD But yeah, there is an insane amount of handmaiming in this series, it's like everytime there is a minor injury of some body part it just has to be a hand. I wonder if he's trying to tell us something? And aaww, Jon looks so cute and troubled :D

I know. Jon was the character I was most disappointed with. The scruffiness, the tight little curls in his hair...none of it worked for me.

:iconsir-heartsalot:
Sir-Heartsalot Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2012
he's decent but, you're right not quite what I imagined. Also his voice...why is it so deep?
Reply
:icondelanthaenas:
Delanthaenas Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012
because he's 25 and not 15, I'd imagine. Jaime and Cersei are not quite how I pictured them either (how many times do they talk about having golden curls?) but I like both of the actors playing them regardless. Which isn't to say Kit Harrington isn't awesome, he's just very far from how I pictured Jon for years.

Sir-Heartsalot Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012
Indeed. Jaime more so than Cersei. Also what was up with Syrio!?
Reply
:icondelanthaenas:
Delanthaenas Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2012
Yeah, Jaime def bugs me more. Syrio I didn't mind so much, because he's a relatively minor character, and I never got too clear a picture of him. Though, I am really looking forward to seeing how they pull of Jaqen and Brienne. Have you seen the actress that was cast in her role? She's definitely got the height, but she's also gorgeous, and I'm really hoping they won't try to pull some kind of "Oh Brienne is really pretty, she just wears manly clothes and armor and is kind of dirty" crap.

:iconsir-heartsalot:
Sir-Heartsalot Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2012
Oh I have no problems with Brienne. I saw the actress and thought she was too pretty, but have you seen the shots of her in full costume? She looks awful. Perfect for Brienne.

I wish I could see your interpretation of Qhorin's face, mostly just because I really like how you portray all of these characters, but this is a great narratively drawn scene. =)

Any kind of fantasy/sci fi shit is awesome, though I am certainly open to suggestions and expanding my horizons, so whatever you'd want really. :D Though if you want any sort of aSoIaF fan art, that would be double good since I owe George RR Martin a piece of fan art, but I totally haven't gotten around to doing it.

(Also, I refuse to add any context to that story, so as to make it seem way more epic than it actually is.)

God bless your depiction of Jon. I get so frustrated when people draw him all giant and mansly. He's still a whiny little boy at this point! What is he, like, 15 or something? I too am a great fan of Qhorin Halfhand- he really did have a huge presence for such a short lifespan.

the Lord o' Bones? Someone's member is bigger, longer, and more badass than that one! HAR!
But mr Qhorin exceeded the badass meter as well, a shame his participation was not extended (but then again, he'd been in the Wall since... forever)
