    I noticed this guy was on the cast list already.



    ..as well as The Station Agent as the token dwarf.

    ...and this


    Token dwarf = best character in the series. Tom McCarthy, writer and director of The Station Agent, also directed the pilot, so I imagine he got a great performance out of Dinklage.

    Afterward Rattleshirt claimed some charred bones, while others threw dice for the ranger's gear. Ygritee won his cloak.

    "Will we return by the Skirling Pass?" Jon asked her. He did not know if he could face those heights again, or if his garron could survive a second crossing.

    "No," she said. "There's nothing behind us." The look she gave him was sad. "By now Mance is well down the Milkwater, marching on your Wall."

    "True knights would never harm women and children." The words rang hollow in her ears even as she said them.

    "True knights." The queen seemed to find that wonderfully amusing. "No doubt you're right. "So why don't you just eat your broth like a good girl and wait for Symeon Star-Eyes and Prince Aemon the Dragonknight to come rescue you, sweetling. I'm sure it won't be very long now."

    Finally!! Though I'd rather hear more about progress on The Dark Tower Series - fucking can't wait to see Roland on the big/small screen.
    My first novel, Darkhouse, has been published and is available here on Amazon. It has nothing to do with Coachella. Or vampires.

    The Wire is the best television show ever. So far.



    vs.

    He moved swiftly, light on his feet, never taking his eyes off Sandor Clegane. It was the easiest thing in the world for Arya to step up behind him and stab him.
    "Is there gold hidden in the village?" she shouted as she drove the blade up through his back. "Is there silver? Gems?" She stabbed twice more. "Is there food? Where is Lord Beric?" She was on top of him by then, still stabbing. "Where did he go? How many men were with him? How many knights? How many bowmen? How many, how many, how many, how many, how many, how many? Is there gold in the village?"

    Arya wins, but its close.

    Lommy and Hot Pie almost shit themselves when she stepped out of the trees behind them. "Quiet," she told them, putting an arm around Weasel when the little girl came running up.

    Hot Pie stared at her with big eyes. "We thought you left us." He had his shortsword in his hand, the one Yoren had taken from the gold cloak. "I thought you was a wolf."

    "Where's the Bull?" asked Lommy.

    "They caught him," Arya whispered. "We have to get him out. Hot Pie, you got to help. We'll sneak up and kill the guards, and then I'll open the door."

    Hot Pie and Lommy exchanged a look. "How many?"

    "I couldn't count," Arya admitted. "Twenty, at least, but only two on the door."

    Hot Pie looked as if he was going to cry. "We can't fight twenty."

    "You only need to fight one. I'll do the other and we'll get Gendry out and run."

    "We should yield," Lommy said. "Just go in and yield."

    Arya shook her head stubbornly.

    "Then just leave him, Arry," Lommy pleaded. "They don't know about the rest of us. If we hide, they'll go away, you know they will. It's not our fault Gendry's captured."

    "You're stupid Lommy," Arya said angrily. "You'll die if we don't get Gendry out. Who's going to carry you?"

    "You and Hot Pie."

    "All the time, with no else to help? We'll never do it. Gendry was the strong one. Anyhow, I don't care what you say, I'm going back for him." She looked at Hot Pie. "Are you coming?"

    Hot Pie glance at Lommy, at Arya, at Lommy again. "I'll come," he said reluctantly.

    "Lommy, you keep Weasel here."

    He grabbed the little girl by the hand and pulled her close. "What if the wolves come?"

    "Yield," Arya suggested.
