The Night Queen

Screwing on my tinfoil hat. Game of Thrones S07 is just around the corner and it’s time. Okay, so here’s the thing: lovely Liam Cunningham, better known as Ser Davos of House Seaworth [grand total of fighting men = one], recently said the following in reference to HBO’s teaser “The Long Walk”. The interview is…

Dragons Or Direwolves

The Lands of Ice and Fire are a perilous place. Staying alive till the end of the day can be a bit tricky. If you had the choice, which mythical creature would you want by your side? A bunch of cuddly pups aka the Furry Fang Brigade, or three scaly Eggs-On-Legs double decker flame throwers?…
