I've almost certainly decided on a topic for my ZULA/master's thesis - after a long time waffling about fanfic, Marlowe, fairy tales and Vikings, I've decided to give role-playing games a try. There's just enough of a body of works on them to start from, and they offer many interesting areas of research, plus I think there are some interesting things to be said about RPGs as a form of literary adaptation and transformative fiction (how to make your thesis about nerd stuff nerdier: compare it to other nerd stuff).

Also, there is a Game of Thrones cookbook! I'm not sure whether I should buy it, because I'm not a very experienced cook, but quasi-medieval cooking sounds very tempting, plus it's based on this really cool blog here:

Inn at the Crossroads

I will definitely try some of these recipes for our weekly rpg-group star trek watching/cooking together nights. The Dornish stuff sounds delicious, although I couldn't bring myself to buy a dead python (poor thing!) even if it was available.

I'm not used to getting up early and working the whole day - that is the lesson this conference has taught me. But somehow in between I managed to finish another of these 1000 page books.

A Feast For Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire part 4) )

Sooo. Game of Thrones. I have not read the second book yet, although I've bought it. And DON'T SPOIL ME. But that means that I have no idea if this thing I have written is even remotely canon compliant or plausible. Because, you see, these two characters have never interacted in canon as far as I know it.

Yeah. This is that kind of fic. The "I really like character A and I really like character B and I think they should meet and have sex!" kind of fic. Additionally, I suspect that this pairing will end in tears once I get to Book 2, because I'm fairly sure when these two characters meet there will be death and betrayal and horrible fates. Or maybe not. Basically I have no clue AND KINDLY DO NOT SPOIL ME (although you may tell me if this utterly unlikely based on book canon, but don't tell me why it is unlikely.)

Title: Best Value For Money
Pairing: Tyrion Lannister/Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish
Rating: R
Length: 2318 words
Disclaimer: As I said, this is only based on HBO show canon, not on G.R.R. Martin's novels, because that is all I know.
Note: Set before the show. I justify this fic with the fact that if there was a gold membership card to brothels on Westeros, Tyrion Lannister would own it, and besides, why is this man not on the small council (yet)? It is clearly where he belongs!

fic: In which Tyrion spends Lannister money, and Littlefinger plays games )
