Hi :) You talked about scenes between gendry and arya that didn't feature in the episode ! Could you tell more about them, if you don't mind? Thank you !!
Hi!!! Well, what I was talking about was the fact that now that the whole battle between The Hound/Beric Dondarrion happened, I realized that for SURE a lot Gendry/Arya scenes I love are just not going to happen. Since these aren’t REALLY spoilers, (since clearly the show will never address them) I will post them. BUT. DO NOT CONTINUE READING IF YOU DON’T WANT A STORM OF SWORDS SPOILERS. (Again, it’s not spoilers, it’s stuff that has already happened in the timeline of the show, but wasn’t ON the show.)
“You were supposed to see the soul through the eyes, to see love through the eyes, the one place you could look at another human being and see what really went on inside, and in Dickie's eyes Tom saw nothing more now than he would have seen if he had looked at the hard, bloodless surface of a mirror. Tom felt a painful wrench in his breast, and he covered his face with his hands. It was as if Dickie had been suddenly snatched away from him. They were not friends. They didn't know each other. It struck Tom like a horrible truth, true for all time, true for the people he had known in the past and for those he would know in the future: each had stood and would stand before him, and he would know time and time again that he would never know them, and the worst was that there would always be the illusion, for a time, that he did know them, and that he and they were completely in harmony and alike. For an instant the wordless shock of his realisation seemed more than he could bear. He felt in the grip of a fit, as if he would fall to the ground. It was too much: the foreignness around him, the different language, his failure, and the fact that Dickie hated him. He felt surrounded by strangeness, by hostility.”—“The Talented Mr. Ripley”, Patricia Highsmith
“What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." So... what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through! Better get outta his way!”—Tony Montana, Scarface
Let the Wild Rumpus Start!
And here we go…
First things first - my entire blog tour schedule can be found over at Fang-tastic Books - check it out to see where I’ll be for the next month or so and enter for a chance to win one of ten copies of A Sliver of Shadow.
Second - My Once & Future podcast is now up - go listen and laugh if you like - it was my first one and I was crazy nervous to start with, so I probably sound a bit silly, but it was a lot of fun. (Chance to win either BoD or SoS there, as well.)
Third - Go leave a comment at Jeffe Kennedy’s blog for a chance to win a custom drawn BoD or SoS scene/character sketchcard by the fabulous Aimo!
Fourth - Check out the top 10 pieces of art inspired by the BoD/SoS series over at All Things Urban Fantasy!
Also - there’s still time to RSVP over at Bitten by Books for additional chances to win a $75 gift card to Amazon.
Okay, think that’s about it for now. I admit I always find this part of the book scene the hardest - that fine line between pushing my books out there without going overboard and being totally obnoxious about it is hard to walk sometimes.
So damn close to a completed novel.
The last of the editing is finished. All I have to do (said like it’s easy, HA) is format the thing and start sending out letters to potential agents.
In the mean time, I was planning to put the final draft up on lulu for purchase. If any one is interested I will be posting the link here and on twitter.
Thanks for hanging around during this process.
