Game of Thrones: The Long Night — Season 8 Episode 3 Recap (Spoilers)

Well it certainly was a “Long Night.” Man. Wow. So much to unpack. I don’t have the space, stamina, or processing power to cover everything incredible that happened in last night’s LONGEST RUNNING BATTLE SCENE IN TV OR MOVIE HISTORY, so I’ll stick to the highlights and low light—literally, it was dark (again, literally)—of one of the greatest events ever to appear on television: the battle of Winterfell.   Arya got the Night King. This was … amazing. Arya, who battled all episode like a cross between Ronin and John Wick, got the word from Red Lady Melisandre that it was all up to her, and girl, did she deliver. Pouncing out of the night like a jungle panther—to protect Bran, who inexplicably decided to play with birds all episode rather than, you know, HELP OUT—the Night King reacted just in time to catch her flying assault. But you got sloppy, ice zombie. Some deft knife-hand switching, and that was that for the reign…

Game of Thrones: A Knight of Seven Kingdoms — Season 8 Episode 2 Recap (Spoilers)

WHO’S READY FOR A HOPELESS BATTLE AGAINST AN INVINCIBLE ARMY OF THE DEAD? Everyone, apparently. Welcome to Winterfell, home of some truly downcast prognosticators. This episode—which is destined to be followed by one of the longest, costliest, and most soul-crushing battle sequences in entertainment history next week—felt like one long farewell scene with a dozen different actors. At this point, I don’t know who is going to die, so I’ll just be safe and say everyone. Literally everyone will die next week. But first, on to the highlights of “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”, which, to anyone who watched it, is enough to make you start ugly crying right now.   Seeing the push again in the recap. Oy. Jaime Lannister. You really did shove Bran out that window. I would have been way less cool about things, but Bran seems to believe he’s the most important player in the coming battle between the living and the dead (???),…

Game of Thrones: Winterfell — Season 8 Episode 1 Recap (Spoilers)

THRONES THRONES THRONES THRONES THRONES THRONES THRONES THRONES.   Game of Thrones is back, the first episode was awesome, this last season looks like it’s going to be incredible, where do I even begin?   Let’s start at the start: a new opening credits sequences whaaaaaaaaat?!?!?! I was already way too excited to watch the show again, and this did nothing to calm me down. The astrolabe sequence now goes inside the castles, and we saw Last Hearth—things don’t go well there, alas—Winterfell and its crypts, and a cool dragon skull lurking under King’s Landing. So many clues about the episodes to come, I think. (I detected a serious emphasis on the weirwood tree in the Winterfell godswood. Just saying. Maybe Emo Bran will make it work somehow.) Also, there’s a GIANT HOLE IN THE WALL THAT THE CAMERA FLIES THROUGH. Goodness. Mercy.   So much good stuff happened in ‘Winterfell’ that I’m just going to hit the highlights…

Things that ALMOST happened in the Project Nemesis (BUT DIDN’T)

Authors make a lot of decisions about their books and then decide against those very decisions– sometimes not using those ideas ends up being for the better and sometimes we wish we would have still used them in the end. Here is an article on what almost happened in Project Nemesis, but didnt.  #Stacey…

Spooky KidLit Reviews The Darkdeep

If you havent picked up The Darkdeep, head on over to Spooky KidLit to check out their review!  Here’s a little sneak peek:  “The Darkdeep is a thrilling love letter to the horror genre. It combines tropes from ’80s horror flicks and Atomic Age creature features with an intriguing Lovecraftian mythology, and the kids at the center of the story with an “us against the world” mission bring to mind the works of Stephen King.”…
