Kevan_Lannister

“No money, mo problems” in Westeros this episode as we wrap up on events in Kings Landing for FeastDance in the Epilogue of Dance. We then head East as Moqorro gives Victarion a fire-arm in Vic 1, before heading to the Wall for Jon 9.  Turns out not paying the Iron Bank is a reaaallly dumb idea.

Your hosts for this episode are Matt (Varley), Bina (Bina007), Adam (drownedsnow), Marie (Nymeria), Hannah (Shadowbaby) and Michael (Khal Wadege.)

Spoilers for all ASOIAF, none for the show, and a clearly flagged discussion of a TWOW chapter in the aftershow at 1 hr 12m.

For those following along at home the next episode will be hosted by QueenJames and will cover Tyrion 10, Dany 8 and Dany 9 with a discussion of a TWOW chapter in the aftershow.

VoK 570: Warlock’s Maze Redux aka The Great Linear ASOIAF ReRead (Part 93)



In this episode of our Linear ReRead through A Song of Ice and Fire we leave “A Feast for Crows” behind as it’s all Dance all the time. We discuss how our own memory of some chapters greatly differs from what’s actually in them and how some chapters just don’t have much to say.

Events take place in early June 300.

Tyrion 9 – Dance – Adrift on the Selaesori Qhoran, captured by slavers
The Griffin Reborn/Jon Connington 2 – Dance – Take Griffin’s Roost
Cersei 1 – Dance – Kevan visits Cersei in jail

Hosts: Adam (drownedsnow), Zach (Alias), Matt (Varley), Hannah (Shadowbaby) and Michael (Khal Wadege), and Abby (Daceymormont).

Edited by Adam

VoK 568: A Seminar of Ice and Fire (Part 1) – Totemism



VoK’s very own Dr Blood begins a series of academic examinations through a Song of Ice and Fire. To start, we take a look at Durkheim’s Elementary Forms of Religious Life–specifically the excerpts where he discusses totemism.*

In addition to sigils and house symbolism/identity, we touch on everything from ethical questions (e.g. the “wolves” and “lions’ ravaging the Riverlands) to tinfoil (just how close are the Targs to dragons??), as well as more character-centric considerations (Dany, her silver, and her eggs; the Starks and their direwolves, etc.)…and anything else we can come up with! What would have happened if the Starks had found another Direwolf for Theon? Is Victarion Greyjoy a Raiders fan? Isn’t the Flayed Man such a bad brand that it would have been changed at some point?

Hosts: Sara (DrBlood), Adam (drownedsnow), Wilson (The Wandering Prophet), and Michael (Khal Wadege).

*Totemism: A system of belief in which humans are said to have kinship or a mystical relationship with a spirit-being, such as an animal… (Britannica.com)
