Premise one: as stated last week, civil Theon discussion is welcomed. Theon bashing will bring ugly reactions out of me, so.. yeah. None of that, please.

Premise two: this review is a minefield of book spoilers and comparison between ACOK-book and the show. I'm gonna spoiler cut everything, but since the spoiler cut doesn't work on my cellphone I'm warning to thread carefully, especially since I'm spoiling shit up until ADWD and not small things only.

and where did you find that beast? )

And with this I'll go have lunch. Post with other tv-related reactions will happen shortly.

Lol this post is going to be 50% one thing, 45% another and 5% everything else.

I'm no lady. )

1. So, I had actually watched that ep when it leaked, then I figured I'd wait for the actual airing moment to review it and then it was Easter and I didn't, but since I have ~feelings~ about it and tonight's episode will give me EVEN MORE (everyone who read the books and saw the preview knows why) I'll just go over the main things here.

the night lands )

2. Easter was absolutely non-eventful. I went to grandparents' and the only news is that apparently my now ten-year-old cousin (UGH, WHEN DID HE BECOME TEN? I FEEL SO OLD) decided that I'm cool enough to interact with. It only reinforces my belief that I can't interact with kids younger than ten, but from then onward it might be not entirely a disaster. The weather since then has been abysmal though. I was so ready for winter to be over.. obviously winter is coming instead

3. In university news, the class I'm attending where it's just me and the professor (seriously) is apparently moving to his office. And we're at the point where we swapped numbers because if he can't go it's ridiculous that I would, and viceversa. It's so awkward, I can't. For the rest, I have one class I moderately care for (but not much), one that is killing my soul and another which is made of professor trying to teach people to speak in English. And I totally don't need to actually attend but it's obligatory. For the last semester that I'll attend (though I'll probably end up taking a couple classes next fall, considering how things are...) it's been so lackluster, ew. Not being able to pick your subjects does a lot in making you wonder what you're even doing.

4. This entry is sadly lacking non-GOT related comments, so since there have been some new friendings lately and this meme looked lovely, I stole it from [livejournal.com profile] pann_cake:

abc meme )

5. Drive by link: there's a GOT kink meme going on here for anyone interested.

6. With that, I'll go answer comments and try to whip up some more five acts fills. One of these days I'll start writing unprompted fic again, but it's not today.

7. And last thing: my Guinness World Record certificate just arrived! :D I'm taking pictures as soon as it isn't bent anymore. (Because obviously what do Italian post workers do when there's a DO NOT BEND written all over the package? Obviously they bend it.)

8. Okay, I'm really done. Next post will probably have fic recs as I hoarded links for a while. Now I'll go do what I said in point six and see you all tomorrow with GOT gushing.
