A wild Allen appears! Aaaand he’s an ass to me within five minutes of knowing me. But he’s cute, and will occupy my attention while I work towards getting the other bachelors into town. (And the other villagers, too, of course. It’s not just going to be me and a harem of attractive young men.)

although that does sound nice

The sea meant freedom to the men of the Iron Islands. He had forgotten that until the Myraham had raised sail at Seagard. The sounds brought old feelings back; the creak of wood and rope, the captain’s shouted commands, the snap of the sails as the wind filled them, each as familiar as the beating of his own heart, and as comforting. I must remember this, Theon vowed to himself. I must never go far from the sea again.

Presenting “House,” an original poem by Neil Gaiman in celebration of National Poetry Month on Tor.com, acquired for Tor.com by consulting editor Ellen Datlow.

“House”

Sometimes I think it’s like I live in a big giant head on a hilltop
made of papier mache, a big giant head of my own head.
I polish the eyes which would be windows, or
mow the lawn, I mean this is my house we’re talking about here
even if it is a big giant papier mache head that looks just like mine.
And people who go past 
in cars or buses or see the house the head on the hill from trains 
they think the house is me.
I’ll be sleeping there, or polishing the eyes, or weeding the lawn, 
but no-one will see me, no-one would look. 
And no-one would ever come. And if I waved no-one even knows it was me waving.
They’d all be looking in the wrong place, at the head on the hill.

I can see your house from here.

ASOIAF card series: Jack of Clubs - Theon Greyjoy

Creative, dishonest, or a mixture of both? As we can imagine, those who are the most creative can also be the most dishonest and vice versa. Here is a card of mental and financial creativity and these people are no lazy bones. As members of the royal family they dislike pettiness and tend to be somewhat impatient with the failings of others. They need respect and a position that allows their brilliant minds free reign to create and explore.On the negative side, the Jack of Clubs can be irresponsible and in some cases, dishonest. They can see things from so many levels that nothing is really ‘wrong’ - it is just another way of looking at things. And they can make up a story so fast that they can explain away practically anything. They don’t get away with much in that regard though.The trouble comes when they start believing their own stories, departing from reality a little too far and creating a lot of hardship before getting back on course.

This idea I had of some superheroes in the Game of Thrones universe. Here are the hypothetical sigils and slogans and costumes.

I am proud to say I watched the old Justice League animated series and that I think Batman x Wonder Woman is still a thing. 

What is your house!? You can tag it :)
