~You Know Nothing~

I am studying to be a conservation biologist and think that the natural world is something humanity has taken for granted over the years. These are just some of my thoughts on conservation, living with wildlife and anything that comes to my mind.

but Joffrey in the books is still a 13-year-old kid. And there’s kind of a moment there where he knows that he’s dying and he can’t get a breath and he’s kind of looking at Tyrion and at his mother and at the other people in the hall with just terror and appeal in his eyes—you know, “Help me mommy, I’m dying.” And in that moment, I think even Tyrion sees a 13-year-old boy dying before him. So I didn’t want it to be entirely, “Hey-ho, the witch is dead.” I wanted the impact of the death to still strike home on to perhaps more complex feelings on the part of the audience, not necessarily just cheering.

This is excellent. Yet another reason Martin is one of the best story creators and character developers out there.

MIA

So I am going to be in Neveda studying Greater Sage Grouse, which is super awesome, but it also means I will literally be out in the middle of the desert and my ability to post is going to be severely limited. Hopefully every few weeks I can hope on and post and update and what not.

stannis just grows on you at first it’s like “hmm stannis” and after some time you are not sure what happened but here you are wearing antlers and screaming “STANNIS” from the rooftops
