I thought this post, "The Silencing of Catelyn Stark" expressed perfectly many of the feelings I (and others) have had regarding how the tv writers have chosen to portray Catelyn's character. Riffing on Catelyn Stark and Skyler White Syndrome... )

Help me procrastinate today with this Writing Process meme stolen from [personal profile] likeadeuce

There's a Comment Meta Fest going on over at [community profile] fem_thoughts . Come on over and play! You can watch me be a cranky misandrist about "The Fall." Also lots of female-centric and femslash-friendly discussion if that doesn't appeal. ;)

In the comments of this week's Dear Prudence, there is a hilarious fake letter from Edmure Tully seeking Prudie's advice post-Red Wedding. Totally made my day. Also Edmure would totally write to Prudie. There's also a really funny one from Jorah,

Oh and *slow clap* for Trudy Campbell. Trudy Campbell for the Iron Throne! Still, not enough Joan. Moar Joan.

 It's that time of year again when they air Mad Men and Game of Thrones on at the same time and I spend my Sunday evenings binging on tv and my Mondays in an internet black hole reading everyone's reaction posts. Man, are these shows begging for a crossover or what? Basically because I want Sally Draper and Arya Stark to be besties. Sally would learn that as much as it sucks to be a teenage girl in the 1960s, it sucks even more to be a teenage girl in Westeros. And Arya could add Don Draper to her growing collection of inappropriate father figures, maybe offer up Pete Campbell to the God of Many Faces. It would be awesome. (actually Pete is too much fun to receive the "gift"...Joan's ex-husband on the other hand....)
