In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, “Is it good, friend?”
“It is bitter—bitter,” he answered;

“But I like it
“Because it is bitter,
“And because it is my heart.”
—  Stephen Crane, In the Desert (The Black Riders and Other Lines)

Nina wished Colm Fahey could march over to Jan Van Eck’s office and tell him to give Inej back or get a mouth full of knuckles. She wished someone in this city would help them, that they weren’t so alone. She wished Jesper’s father could take them all with him. She’s never been to Novyi Zem, but the longing for those golden fields felt just like homesickness.

I hate that people defend J.K. Rowling when it comes to The Cursed Child. She helped write it, said it an amazing script, promoted it, and called people wormtaily for posting spoilers to warn people to not buy the script. Other famous authors (Stephen King, J.D. Salinger, etc.) spoke out when they felt a adaptation didn’t live up to their work. Anne Rice even told her books fans to not see Queen of the Damned because it mutilated her book. Rowling thought it was great or wanted our money.

The Dark Tower - SPOILERS FOR THE BOOK SERIES - I had a lot of fun putting together my Game Of Thrones infographic a few years ago, but I haven’t really made any since. I’m a huge Dark Tower fan and this was just as much fun to put together.
