Meta drawing. In 2013, when I got a new graphics tablet, I drew a pool party containing character requests from some Facebook friends. In 2014, I redrew that pool party to showcase my skill progress. Here I am 3 years later redrawing the pool party again benchmarking my progress. It has been an incredible journey and I can’t wait to keep going.

What’s also fun is how some of these characters have grown in that time period. Ellie is older and Dany’s dragons have gotten considerably larger.

There are several ‘Annie Vs. Britta Debates’ on the internet.  By Annie Vs. Britta debates, I mean take two female characters of any show and deciding who I would rather be in a relationship with.  While this seems pitiful at first, you can’t help but have thought this about any show you watched. The choices includes personality, looks, attitude, etc.  I read a cool article that brought up 10 cases that should be looked at here.  Now I’ll admit that I haven’t seen all 10 of the shows, but I do have strong opinions on the ones I have seen.  It’s also a reasonable excuse to post pictures of my favorite characters of some of my favorite tv shows at their best moments.

Check out my breakdown below.  Minor Spoilers About.

Seven save us all, I’ve finished A Dance with Dragons.  In the most recent installment of George R.R. Martin’s series, A Song of Ice and Fire, A Dance with Dragons intimidates us all with it’s 900+ pages and tiny text.  But if you’ve made it as far as the fifth book, you know as well as I do, a larger book means more things happening.  My first impression was that this book was just as large as my favorite book of the series, A Storm of Swords, so that means that this edition could possibly live up to the exciting and jaw dropping nature of it’s predecessor.  Following up the relatively short [in terms of ASoIaF] Feast of Crows, A Dance with Dragons brings us back to some more central characters [and more exciting in my humble opinion] as a follow up from the third book.

Even Martin said himself in a forward to the book that A Dance with Dragons first takes us back to the aftermath of A Storm of Swords to follow up some characters left out of Feast for Crows.  And at about ¾ of the way in, we would come back to characters that were left in a cliffhanger from Feast for Crows and the story would be in a unison real time.  So below is my review of the book as a whole.  It was difficult to organize in my head given the complexity of the nature, so hang on for a bumping ride.  Enough of the spoiler-free talk.  Dare to click ‘more’ for a full blown, spoiler filled, gush fest review of the most recent Song of Ice and Fire book.

Overview

In George R.R. Martin’s words, “This one was a bitch”.  Writing a review for this complex book is not easy.  So many things to consider and so many things to talk about.  I’ve essentially broken up this section into parts describing the main characters based on their point of views.  Some titles I took directly from Martin himself while others, I witfully fashioned myself.  In each section, you’ll find a brief summary of what happened to each character as well as my thoughts on what happened.  Feel more than free to discuss with me on some or all points!  I look forward to our geek-out.

I apologize for this article is likely full of spelling errors and the like.  4500 words is easy to lose track.
