a storm of swords a song of ice and fire

So I met GRRM today and my question for him was “What would Robb Stark have named his sword?“ The response was, after some thought, “something wolfy. Like wolf’s something, tooth or claw.” This means two things Robb Stark is a nerd who would name his sword, and I will now be referring to his sword as “Something Wolfy”

It is not clear what color were Vhagar’s scales or flames, but judging from Visenya’s temper, it had to be bloody.

The night was strangely beautiful. The moon was a graceful crescent, and it seemed as though he had never seen so many stars. The King’s Crown was at the zenith, and he could see the Stallion rearing, and there the Swan. The Moonmaid, shy as ever, was half-hidden behind a pine tree. How can such a night be beautiful? he asked himself. Why would the stars want to look down on such as me? - Jaime IV, A Storm of Swords
