G.R.R Martin makes me angry.

So, I just happened upon a chapter in ‘A Storm of Swords’ today that I’d not been looking forward to reading. I’d had this particular event spoiled for me quite early on so I knew it was coming. Worry not those who wish to avoid spoilers, this will be as vague as it possibly could be. As a heads up, its the Red……

Knowing what was going to happen before it happened was worse than if it had been a surprise. This way, I spent every other sentence for about three chapters thinking ‘No, don’t do that, get out of there, don’t let them do that, get that thing back, turn around, fly you fools’.

Not even a cup of tea and a scone made the bitter pill any sweeter….

I don’t even particularly like the characters involved. I mean, one of the Houses sure, but not really the characters. It’s the way it happens. Just plain wrong. There is something which is broken; and to me, something like that should never be broken. Gives me goosebumps.

28% Extroversion, 22% Intuition, 25% Attachment and 81% Organisation!

Congratulations, you are most like DORI, elder brother to Nori and Ori, and member of the Company of Thorin Oakenshield. Dori spends most of his time looking out for the rest of the Company and keeping everything organised, in particular making sure ill-fortune hasn’t befallen Ori. You are a neat and orderly person; you like maintaining a sense of structure in all aspects of your life to make sure everything goes according to plan. You are reliable and dutiful, and will always honour your word when you pledge yourself to a task. No excessive flourish or fanfare is wasted in your work; you are very efficient in time and cost with your impeccably practical point of view.

Dori is somewhat out of his depth with the tumultuous Quest, preferring a work environment where things are done “by the book”. You like to know what the rules of the game are in advance, and rely on familiarity and past experiences to guide you rather than imagination and intuition. You have faultless logic and enjoy methodically reasoning through problems, and will persist until your task is done.

Your dedication to your work constitutes a large portion of your life. Even though you are relatively quiet and serious, you are rarely isolated and know exactly where you stand amongst your peers. Your friends appreciate your calm and stable nature, and know they can always count on you to be there for them, and lend them some of your strength.Image
