Here’s George R.R. Martin Playing a Game of Thrones

I’m working on a SERIOUSLY SERIOUS POST that’s going seriously nowhere, so in the meantime, let’s discuss Game of Thrones, shall we?

I think that’s all that really needs to be said.

But just one quick question: can it really be considered fantasy if Westeros is pretty much exactly the world we live in, but with ice zombies, and without the internet? Magical embellishments don’t cover up the fact that every single character is at least a little bit awful, and pretty much okay with that. If I wanted to read about reality, I’d just read the newspaper.
