GoT Master Post - The Houses of Westeros

Guess what? It wasn’t just a Greyjoy one recorded of course. And it wasn’t just Houses (e.g. there are videos of Robert’s Rebellion explained from multiple character’s POV like Robert and Viserys or the Greyjoy rebellion from Robb and Theon’s POV. There’s even a video of the religions of GoT - Jaqen explains the Many Faced God but here are some of the houses of Westeros - great and small.

Historypin of the Week
Orlando Allen House
Former location: 99 East Swan Street at the corner of Center Street

The Orlando Allen House was constructed in 1829. Orlando Allen (1803–1874), born in New Hartford, Connecticut, first moved to Buffalo in 1819. He served as president of the First Bank of Buffalo in 1840 and was the eighteenth mayor of the City of Buffalo from 1848 to 1849. He also served as the Buffalo City Treasurer, followed by two separate terms as Second Ward Alderman in 1856–1857.

He was a founding member of the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy, the governing body of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, and one of the first presidents of the Buffalo Historical Society. He died on September 4, 1874.

The house, being one of the last wooden frame houses in Buffalo, was eventually demolished in 1904. It was located on the same lot where Coca-Cola Field currently resides.

You know, if Wally also becomes Kid Flash in the current timeline, imagine him and Barry decorating the house for Christmas and Iris is trapped in the middle of the room with no way to get out. She'd be confined to the couch. LOL!

Christmas in the West Allen house writes itself as a sitcom LOL. Wally and Barry would get bored with it and want to decorate the place instantly so Iris doesn’t have to do anything, and she’ll be both happy and sad about it because it’s tradition to decorate the place herself

Why going to the gym together is a bad idea (A&A)

It was another typical morning in the life of the phenomenal couple. They had went down back home to Allen’s house , Since the new house was still under construction. Since her back pain had gone down , Ashley had decided to go back to that little gym they usually went to when they were home. Being is faithful self, Allen had decided to go with her, wanting to keep a eye on her to make sure she didn’t overdo things.

Sometimes, he was worse than her mom. But she wouldn’t complain about him caring. She knew he meant well and she went with it. It was just over a hour passed at the gym that she started feeling his eyes on her. It wasn’t a look of concern that she saw on his face, but his familiar lust look. A smirk appeared on her face as she decided to tease him bit. today was gonna be fun.
