Our Watch is (Almost) Ended

With Game of Thrones approaching its final episode and characters dropping like flies, the question on everyone's lips is: who will sit on the Iron Throne?   

Ask no more.


  1. I'm in favor, and I haven't even watched the show.

    It's good to hear from you, TOF.

  2. A Coat of Green a coat of Grey a Wolf still has claws and Jon's are long and sharp my lady, longer and Sharper than yours.

    He also has the better claim, if GoT continues to follow the trajectory of Shakespeare's Henriads then my money is on Aegon VI inheriting a wasteland and the series trying to heal a poisoned realm - I know that the next episode will feature a scene at the Dragonpit and whilst he died in the service of his rightful monarch Varys has it seemed informed many Lords that the King in the North is the rightful Lord of Westeros.

  3. Better you than me. That looks horrible.

  4. I checked my lips and there was no question there? Is there hope for me or am I not an element of the everybody set? It seems I have a body . . . Or perhaps I misidentified the lips? Between nose and chin, right?
