coaldustcanary: (ASOIAF - Tyrion - Is Better Than You)
I watched the premiere of Game of Thrones on Sunday night with [livejournal.com profile] wagemage and, overall, I feel very positively about the show, albeit with a few reservations.

My review comments will spoil the episode AND some elements of the novel that parallel the first episode.

Entertainment Weekly has new photos from the Game of Thrones series, which is set to debut in April.

SPOILER ALERT! Note that if you're not familiar with the books, these images (and particularly the descriptive text with them) are very spoilery for things that happen in the first few episodes, including the major reveal at the end of the pilot, so proceed with caution if you don't want to be spoiled!

I committed fanfiction, guys. This is crossposted from [livejournal.com profile] valyrian_forged. It's a drabble-set, so the limited context is likely to not make much sense unless you've read the books.

Title: Oathkeeper (Or, Five Times Brienne Kept Her Oath)
Fandom: A Song of Ice and Fire
Rating: T for violence, adult themes
Spoilers: Through A Feast For Crows, post-Feast speculation
Length: 500 words, 5 100-word drabbles on a theme
Characters/Pairing: Brienne/Jaime. Kind of. Consider my icon ironically used.

I should totally be sleeping, but I've actually felt good today for once, in spite of taking a walk that tired me out too quickly...

They have announced more casting for the Game of Thrones series.

Sean Bean as Eddard Stark.
Mark Addy as Robert Baratheon.
Harry Lloyd as Viserys Targaryen. (Harry was the Son/Baines in the Family of Blood in the two-parter Doctor Who from series 3.)

And this is, of course, on top of Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister.

I'm going to go over to a corner and have a little dance and hope they don't screw this up.

And then sleep. Yes.
