I'm a law student with a love for the quieter things in life. I write on a variety of topics, along with the occasional short story or poem.
Give me a rainy day, a cup of coffee and a place to sit and write, and I'll owe you big time.
The two brothers stood, one against the other Looking across the vast divide. Long ago, they crossed fists as lads, Here on this very land,
I stood over the dead body of my friend, Knowing it was my wrath that caused him to end, Slowly horror overcame me, what had I done?
The Chinks in 'Game of Thrones'' Armour
(SPOILER WARNING FOR ALL SEVEN SEASONS OF GAME OF THRONES) No franchise is infallible. There have been several stories that have been told through the course of books, movies, TV shows, and even video games that have touched both the heights of glory and the depths of monotony and boredom. However, every once in a while, there emerges that story that seems like it can do no wrong. For many years, the series that, in my opinion, occupied this position was J.K Rowling’s masterful Harry Potter. As of late, though, one series has risen to take on the mantle that everyone’s favourite boy wizard left, and that series is none other than George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, or, as it is more popularly known, Game of Thrones. And while it is no exaggeration to say that the show has become one of the icons of the entertainment world in recent years, I say that it suffers from key problems that, while not reducing the quality of the show, definitely takes it down from what it used to be back when it first came on the air.
