"He was so tired that he had to be carried home"

❝ It’s a good idea to have your own books with you in a strange place. ❞

- Cornelia Funke, Inkheart

Q: A major concern in A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones is power. Almost everybody – except maybe Daenerys, across the waters with her dragons – wields power badly.
George R.R. Martin: Ruling is hard. This was maybe my answer to Tolkien, whom, as much as I admire him, I do quibble with. Lord of the Rings had a very medieval philosophy: that if the king was a good man, the land would prosper. We look at real history and it's not that simple. Tolkien can say that Aragorn became king and reigned for a hundred years, and he was wise and good. But Tolkien doesn't ask the question: What was Aragorn's tax policy? Did he maintain a standing army? What did he do in times of flood and famine? And what about all these orcs? By the end of the war, Sauron is gone but all of the orcs aren't gone – they're in the mountains. Did Aragorn pursue a policy of systematic genocide and kill them? Even the little baby orcs, in their little orc cradles? In real life, real-life kings had real-life problems to deal with. Just being a good guy was not the answer. You had to make hard, hard decisions. Sometimes what seemed to be a good decision turned around and bit you in the ass; it was the law of unintended consequences. I've tried to get at some of these in my books. My people who are trying to rule don't have an easy time of it. Just having good intentions doesn't make you a wise king.

I thought it was a bit early for KP to be saying what Kate is doing in November

This blog is moving!


Same URL but it’s going to be run as a side blog off of my main teaandroyalty. I’ve moved all the sets that I want to keep over to the new blog (any set that made me wonder “what was I thinking?” didn’t make the cut) and I’m now putting the final touches on the tags and theme. So today or tomorrow this blog will stop and the new one will start up. 

I hope everyone will continue to follow sovereignwardrobe but moving it will make it much easier to maintain.

The Kitty

(Some of the) MCU cast take on the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS.





can’t this show just be nothing but data training cats

My favorite thing is his cat’s name is Spot.

He named a striped tabby Spot.

I remember when they have to crash the Enterprise, and Data’s looking for Spot in the wreckage.

I have never given a shit so much about a fictional cat and his android master. Tears were prepared and everything.

never seen this show but that cat turning to look at him is adorable
