What do we say to the God of Death?
Last time we journeyed to Braavos in Game of Thrones Season 4, all we saw was a giant interior space with Mycroft Holmes in it. With so many characters from the main cast descending on the free city at once, though, we're probably going to be spending a lot of time there when the show returns next year. Spoilers abound, of course!Read More
And he's at Dragon Con, nonetheless.
Super-rad cosplayer Casey Renee Cosplay isn't cool with how jerky Daenerys's dragons have been as of late, so she imagined a world where our Khaleesi is Mother to the cutest dragon of all - How to Train Your Dragon's Toothless! (via Fashionably Geek)Read More
George R.R. Martin Has Previewed What’s To Come In His Next Game of Thrones Novel (We’ll Give You 3 Guesses)
Rainbows, lollipops, and unicorns, right George???
When I say details, I mean details. Do not read this post unless you're totally ok with reading spoilery things about the next A Song of Ice and Fire novel, The Winds of Winter.Read More
Yup. They're the strong ones, all right.
As much as we love all the actors on Game of Thrones, it's always nice to see a more book-driven interpretation of the characters we know and adore. That's why we can't get enough of these illustrations from Martina Cecelia. The Qartheen one-breasted dress! Catelyn's auburn hair! ASHA! It's too much for our hearts to take. Someone's gonna have to come and eat them raw or something.Read More
Strap in, nerds. You're about to learn something semi-useful.
As people who read the ASOIAF series of books know, the girl we call Khaleesi is not the first Daenerys Targaryen to be born. So why does she call herself "First of Her Name?" The answer has a lot to do with the way that the history of kings and queens is recorded, both in George R.R. Martin's fictional world and in ours.Read More
Hear Me Roar
So that's how Daenerys can win the people of Westeros over to her side: By buying them pizza. Armies are great and all, but I can't imagine even the Lannisters could resist a large stuffed-crust with extra pepperoni. She might have to throw in an order of breadsticks to win over the notoriously prickly Tywin, but after that she'll be good.

The Mary SueSince last Sunday, the Internet has been abuzz with talk of Game of Thrones' controversial rape scene. We touched on it in our recap and shared with you the responses of the scene's director, co-writer, and one of its actors, plus A Song of Ice and Fire scribe George R.R. Martin. But we hadn't written a post specifically on our personal thoughts on scene, because...well, because we have a lot of them. There's much to unpack about rape culture, storytelling tropes, and the responsibility of fiction. So Jill Pantozzi and Rebecca Pahle, along with Geekosystem's Victoria McNally, sat down to hash it all out. Below you'll find our uncensored discussion on the scene and why, specifically, it made us boil with seething, all-encompassing rage. Read More
"I see no babes, only dragonspawn."
Nerdy parents are now claiming what is theirs with fire, blood, and an enthusiasm for strong female role models from pop culture: statistics from the Social Security Administration reveal that in 2012 America welcomed more babies named Khaleesi than Betsy. Adorable baby cosplay pics or it didn't happen, SSA!Read More
