I stayed up until 1:30 in the morning just so I could finish “A Clash of Kings.” Even if my eyes felt like they were gonna drop out of their sockets any time, I kept on reading, reading, reading.
My heart’s still in my throat. Fuck you George R.R. Martin for your cliffhangers. They’re too suspenseful and awesome and oh my god I haven’t been this geeky since I was in the fourth grade, when I was head over heels for Rollerjam!*
I feel so sorry for the Imp, which gives me all the more reason to hate the queen but I can’t because she’s so witty and bitter and cruel.
Queen Cersei: Do you want to be loved Sansa?
Sansa: Everyone wants to be loved.
Queen Cersei: I see flowering hasn’t made you any smarter. Sansa, permit me to share a bit of womanly advice with you on this very special day. Love is poison. A sweet poison yes, but it will kill you all the same.
What is Bitter Ocampo! Perhaps that’s why she has the hots for Jaime. But I love her still. She’s a fine villain.
Anyway, I shall begin “A Storm of Swords” today.
*Rollerjam was a roller derby/wrestling show which I totally enjoyed when I was a kid during the early 2000’s. My favorite team was Nevada Hot Dice.
