ASOIAF MEME: Wenda the White Fawn and the Kingswood Brotherhood

The Kingswood Brotherhood was an infamous outlaw organization during the reign of King Aerys II. Operating out of the Kingswood, the Brotherhood gained recognition by kidnapping several nobles and evading early attempts to capture them. Ultimately, they became such a nuisance that King Aerys sent a detachment of soldiers led by notable members of the Kingsguard to destroy them. Lord Sumner Crakehall and his two squires, Jaime Lannister and Merrett Frey, were also part of the retinue, led by Ser Arthur Dayne.

The Brotherhood was sheltered by the smallfolk of the Kingswood, preventing the royal forces from finding and ending the outlaws. However, Ser Arthur Dayne gained the confidence of the smallfolk, who had believed that the only ones protecting their rights was the Brotherhood. Arthur petitioned the king for better rights for the smallfolk and he made sure the royal forces paid for any items they took from the peasantry. Arthur’s actions swung the allegiance of the smallfolk to the royal forces who could now hunt the Brotherhood, as the outlaws could no longer walk around with impunity in the forest.

In a notable clash, the young Jaime Lannister, Ser Arthur Dayne, and Ser Barristan Selmy faced off against several notable outlaws, including the Smiling Knight and their leader, Simon Toyne. Barristan killed Simon, while Arthur killed the Smiling Knight. Jaime regards the battle, in which he crossed swords with the Smiling Knight, as one of his fondest memories.

Other members of the Brotherhood included Wenda the White Fawn, Oswyn Longneck the Thrice Hanged, Big Belly Ben, Fletcher Dick and Ulmer. All members are presumed dead except Ulmer, who joined the Night’s Watch to avoid execution.

I just want to clarify

Yes I ship ryden
No I don’t think its okay to harass them about it
In fact its really NOT okay to harass them about it. Its not okay to harass any IRL people who you ship. It’s an invasion of privacy and probably makes them feel awful.

Because I love the background characters in Tyranny too much, here’s my interpretation of Layla, Nunoval’s lover in the short story “Carved of Shadow, Crept from Darkness” by Megan Starks (and also some extra rough sketches).

For this, I used a handful of descriptive sentences from the short story for reference, namely:

[…] tough as bronze,” “[…] abs bunching beneath, taut, bronzed skin,” 

[…] eyes half-focused and bluer than the northern sky.

[…] her hair spilled around her like a golden crown.

…keep in mind, Nunoval is the point-of-view character and he is clearly biased in his descriptions of her, so who knows I might be way off mark here with my ripped and statuesque babe imagining. ;D

I also got the impression she was a Fatebinder or at least directly affiliated with the Court, so I made sure to include Tunon’s sigil and elements from the Fatebinder armour in the outfit.

Fluff Friday: November 18 “Big & Little”

Not particularly shippy. Featuring: Sakura and Kakashi, with guest appearances by Naruto, Sai, Yamato, Tsunade and Shizune. Would nod vaguely at canon if they were to pass in the street.

This is de-aged fic. Neither Sakura nor chibi!Kakashi are particularly thrilled, but Naruto thinks it’s hilarious.


Sakura’s just coming up on the end of a long, long hospital shift when she hears the commotion in the lobby. She pauses, letting her attention stray from the medical chart she’s updating to trying to decipher the noise two floors down, but the distance muffles everything to only the dull rise and flow of voices. She cocks her head, listening to no avail.

“Haruno-sensei?” the chūnin perched on the bed dares prompt.

She frowns and shakes her head, turning back to her patient. If she’s needed, Shizune will send one of the nurses to fetch her. Until then, she has work to finish.

“Hey, Athena?”

“Hm?”

“I uh…I was pokin’ around outside Concordia a bit the other day.”

“Yeah?”

“Yeah. I actually found something I’d been lookin’ for for a long time. It belonged to my mum but I lost it when I got stranded out in Serenity’s Waste. Bloody kraggons at my doorstep y'know? This thing though…it got me thinkin’. These last couple of years since the whole thing with Jack and Zarpedon have been really great don’t you think?”

“I…yes. They have. Why?”

“Well…I’m really glad you decided to stick around. Like, really REALLY glad.”

“I had a good reason to. Janey, is this about those matching tattoos you said we should get because I already said-“

“Nooo no no, nothin’ like that. I just…like I said I’ve been thinkin’. About you. About us. About how crazy happy I’ve been since you fell down from Helios and…well, I wanted to ask you somethin’…”

A year ago, my husband was dead and I was lost and my book was an idea and a few people (were like, we believe in you, you can do it!

And I was like, can I?

The last year, by the way, was the pits. But I *could* do it and I *did* do it and I just spent the past 8 days dragging Ralph around New York, meeting with amazing people and realizing that this is now a real thing that I did.

The book is out, officially, in two months. But if you pre-order it:

1) It’s somehow very important to authors in ways I don’t understand, but has been told to me enough times that I should, like most topics.

2) You save money! Which, if you are from the Midwest, is like a real badge of honor. “Oh, you like this skirt? It cost me 13 cents because I had a coupon and it was missing a button.”

3) Always have a third thing in mind when you are making a list. OH! You can order through Amazon Smile, choose Still Kickin as the charity, and basically do TWO awesome things at once.

It’s really hard to make something and then put it in the world and even though I have no problem shouting from the rooftops about Still Kickin and forcing you all into a wardrobe that is 94% kelly green, it’s way harder for me to ask you to buy my book. Like, I am feeling major respect for Girl Scouts at this moment.

I wrote this book for everyone who has been through some shit, or will be someday. Which is to say, I wrote it for you.

I hope you love it.
