The Ravenry: Week of 11/30/15


Hello, lovelies!

As you may or may not know, Wars and Politics of Ice and Fire has its own Tumblr page (as well as its own Twitter and Facebook pages).  Even more excitingly,  we here at the blog have partnered with ASOIAF University to answer questions about A Song of Ice and Fire.  We – that is, SomethingLikeaLawyer and I – take the text-based questions submitted to us, write up thoughtful, text-based answers, and publish these answers on the Tumblr.

Here’s the thing. You never know what you’re going to get in the inbox on any given week (other than a guarantee that the queue will be at least a hundred questions longer than it was the previous week, despite your best efforts to answer questions). Some questions are straightforward. “What makes Lyanna the likeliest candidate to be the Knight of the Laughing Tree?” “How long is a day’s ride?” Stuff like that. But what I love – I won’t speak for the Hand – is when we get questions that require pondering, but the best kind of pondering. When I get to reference Shakespeare on the usage of “cousin” – when the Hand waxes quite eloquent on Stannis’ and Davos’ fates – when I get to talk about all the great ladies I love in the series – those are really good weeks. So not a shit-ton of answers this week, but some really really awesome ones.

Without further ado, here’s The Ravenry for the week of November 30:

As always, we love to hear your text-based questions, so if you have a burning question about ASOIAF, click this link to send us a raven. The more specific the question, the better text-based answer we can write, although we do our best to answer them all.

Love you lots,

The Queen Regent (NFriel)
