Have you heard that Netflix has officially announced A Series Of Unfortunate Events season two?!

To celebrate, you should check out my ASOUE themed candle, a word which here means, “wonderful scented thing that you need to have in your life whether you’re a fan of the books, netflix series, movie, some combination thereof, or even a fan of none of those things.”

The layers are:

  • Sunny’s Hot Chocolate (spice and chocolate)
  • Coconut Cream Cake (Coconut and cake)
  • V.F.D. (secrets, fire, and mysteries)

Visit the listing here, or my shop home here!

Hi! I'm asking as much of the Children of the Earth (the ASoIaF meta-tumblr community) this... what are/is *the* crucial, essential element(s), if you could be that precise, of ASoIaF that makes you think 'yup, this is a series worth pouring tons of time, words and blood into'? Even through any and all *really* frustrating elements (Dead Ladies Club, undeconstructed misogyny, uncomfortable orientalism, slaver bears and weaker writing points)?Thank you in advance and hope you have a good day!

Hi! Lots of cool people giving lots of great answers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

I love good worldbuilding. I wanna touch “a little bit of creation that hasn’t had all the awe and the wonder ripped from it yet”. That’s my favorite kind of fantasy story, where the world itself has been crafted as carefully as the characters. I’m like GRRM, I wanna walk under new stars, over the hills and far away. For all that I complain about his worldbuilding (@grrm, i’m still waitin for the names of those western hills, the clock is ticking here), grrm is a good worldbuilder. He’s made very complex societies, to the point that real academics study and write papers about ASOIAF economics, and law, and geology, and sociology, and that’s exactly the type of stuff I love. I wanna visit distant worlds and see how they work. I wanna sit in their libraries and study their books and read all their history. Oh gosh, the number of fantasy libraries I’ve wanted to visit, ever since I was a little girl … and grrm makes it happen. I like worlds that have a history to them, to know that there’s so much beneath the surface, even if I’ll never get to see it … just the fact that it’s there makes Westeros a place worth visiting. 

And I love GRRM’s romanticism, how richly emotional the story is, how beautiful… “He dreamt an old dream, of three knights in white cloaks, and a tower long fallen…” GRRM makes you care. Maybe you don’t care about everybody – I certainly don’t – but you care about somebody while reading ASOIAF. He makes you care intensely, beyond reason, to the point where you’d willingly clobber somebody over the head with a frying pan because you care so much. The ones you care about become like your friends, or your own family. And you’ve suffered for these characters, whether it’s the Red Wedding or the Purple Wedding or whatever emotional trauma you’ve shared with your favs.

And I like how GRRM approaches morality, I love Tyrion, whose such a great example of a morally grey, compelling character. And most of all, GRRM’s a damn good storyteller.

Hahaha I’m honored to be considered a part of that community!

For me, it essentially boils down to the female perspective and the anti-war rhetoric. I have always loved art and media that depicts war’s human consequences. I never cared for patriotic war films, novels, and poems. The thing that sets ASOIAF apart from many other anti-war pieces is the female perspective and children’s perspectives on war– the people who most often suffer the consequences and the ones who die without any honors bestowed upon them.

It’s the sort of thing I’ve seen in films like Two Women, of the effects war have on women and children, particularly mothers. In ASOIAF we see many women and children who are not combatants, but are the mothers, wives, children, and victims of combatants. We see how male ambition hurts women and hurts children. We some of these victims break, we some of them thrive, and we even see some of them participate.

GRRM’s choice to exclude the perpetrators of Westeros’s war from having POVs sets these books far apart from other novels with similar plots and rhetoric. He does this while building an extremely expansive world and exploring wildly different characters. The world is just *deep* and there are so many layers to the books and so much to work with. ASOIAF is a giant sandlot with something for everybody.

There is no character that is perfect. The flaws introduced are realistic ones that make sense in the context of a teenager, or a mother, or an adult man, or what have you. Everyone has their own struggles. Everyone suffers, even those who shouldn’t have to. Everyone has their place in the plot.

It’s not without its issues, of course, but I adopt a critical perspective because my values don’t end when I pick up a book. There are elements of the book that are *written* in a typical racist or misogynistic fashion and there is a lot that can be improved upon. Ultimately, though, I’m just along for the ride like everyone else!

  • okay but au where the deal with the Moriyamas for Neil goes through and someone in one of Andrew’s Fosters Homes sees Andrew’s violence way earlier in his life. And they become Riko’s Number 4 and 5 when they’re still children.
  • And yet, even though their numbers mark them as Riko’s, they have been each others since they met.
  • The two of them learning Japanese and French alongside the others, then picking German up so they can talk to each other
  • Andrew who takes knives as his weapons and makes it clear to Neil that these ones are for protecting him, not hurting him. 
  • That same night, the two of them pool some money together and buy a book of baby names. They choose the name Neil to replace Nathaniel because Nathaniel will always be afraid of knives, but Neil will never be afraid of them in Andrew’s hands.
  • The two of them always by each others side. It is never like Riko and Kevin, wherein Riko walks in front like a king and the others fall into line behind him, because they are always equal. 
  • Andrew who has already been through enough foster homes to slice into hands and forearms anytime someone touches him, but who walks thigh-to-thigh and shoulder-to-shoulder with Neil always.
  • Andrew and Neil who know each others bodies inside and out because while they were growing, they were also exploring. 
  • Andrew and Neil who share their first kiss at fifteen without any though because they have always been a “we” because there is no one else for either of them.
  • No one ever flat out says it, but Andrew and Neil make a more deadly team on the court then Kevin and Riko ever will. Kevin and Riko may be synced perfectly, but Andrew and Neil know each other inside and out not because they were forced on each other but because they wanted to be with each other
  • Neil and Andrew holding down the defensive line almost single handedly because Neil and Andrew don’t need to communicate, they just know what the other is thinking.

Starts with Goodbye - Part 1

Pairing: Dean x reader
Anon request: Can you make a imagine where Dean left the reader in a cruel way *a demon told him to do that in order to save Sam*?He regret and go to her but finds that she has become a demon cause she made a deal in order not to feel the pain that he caused her?
Summary: Dean has to choose between saving Sammy’s life or his relationship with the reader. We know the Winchester’s, so it’s obvious that Dean saves Sammy. Thereupon the reader trades her life for black eyes.
Words: 1′894
Warning: cursing, pain, heartache, demon deals

Starts With Goodbye - Carrie Underwood was such an inspiration for this!! Please listen to it whilst reading. Also, thank you @i-wish-i-could-be-peter-pan for the help with this series <3

Please continue the Let It Pour series! It is absolutely amazing and I love it so much. You are such a great writer!

Thank you so much! If you have any ideas for the next installment, please feel free to let me know! I’m a big fan of the series myself (does that sound strange? It’s a joy to write, and the story line is always as new to me as it is to you all, so I suppose I can say I’m a fan… right?) and I’d absolutely love to continue!
