Robert's Rebel Yell (12.1)

Part 1: The Movers and Shakers That Shook and Moved The Realm

SPOILERS!!!

FOR ALL PUBLISHED BOOKS IN #GRRM'S A Song of Ice and Fire AS WELL AS ALL TELEVISED EPISODES OF HBO'S Game of Thrones...

Born amidst salt and smoke- Just off the Long Island Expressway- Beneath a bleeding star...

The Wardens of Long Island dig deep into the Realm-wide conflict that is known as Robert's Rebellion. The timeline begins immediately following the narrative of their Southron Ambitions episodes as King Scab (good old Aerys II Targaryen) sends his swiftest Royal raven to The Eyrie with a message politely asking Lord Jon Arryn for the decapitated heads of both his wards- the brand-new Lord of Winterfell Eddard Stark, and Lord Robert Baratheon of Storm's End. If he had thought to oblige his King, it takes but one look at Ned's puppy-dog eyes and Jon Arryn is convinced that he cannot do what is demanded of him.

#TPTWP detail the c%$@ out of the noble men that would be the heroes and villains of the civil war to come: Jon Arryn- Lord of the Eyrie and Defender of The Vale of Arryn, Eddard Stark- The new Lord of Winterfell, Robert Baratheon- The young Lord of Storm's End, Hoster Tully- The Lord of Riverrun and The Lord Paramount of The Trident, Rhaegar Targaryen- The Crown Prince of Dragonstone and Heir to The Iron Throne of Westeros, Aerys II Targaryen- The King of The Andals, The Rhoynar, and The First Men and The Defender of The Realm, Varys- The Master of Whispers on The King's Small Council, and Jon Connington- The Lord of Griffin's Roost and the newly named Hand to The King.

John and SeannieWan also breakdown which part of the Realm would side with The Rebels and which would stay loyal to House Targaryen.

There is even a bit of musing on the possibly purposely confusing timeline that precedes the outbreak of violence and goes through the majority of the war.

The breathtaking artwork for this episode is titled Robert and Eddard and created by a Hungarian artist called Enife. More ASoIaF related artwork by her, as well as plenty of beautiful, non-ASoIaF related creations, can be found at enife.deviantart.com.

The Princes That Were Promised are John and SeannieWan. Every week they tear apart Westeros and sift through the pieces to bring their Leal and Loyal Subjects the history of the Realm and The Known World from both George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's adaptation, Game of Thrones.

The Idiot's Guide to Southron Ambitions, Part 2 (11.2)

Changing Times and Drawing Lines

SPOILERS!!!

FOR ALL PUBLISHED BOOKS IN #GRRM'S A Song of Ice and Fire AS WELL AS ALL TELEVISED EPISODES OF HBO'S Game of Thrones...

Born amidst salt and smoke- Just off the Long Island Expressway- Beneath a bleeding star...

The 2nd unbelievably exciting half of #TPTWP's foray into Rickard Stark's Southron Ambitions takes the gigantic step from the Great Houses flirtation with Great-House-intermingling to the Great Houses need for Great-House-intermingling in order to survive.

The Rickard and Brandon Stark show comes to an end and the future of House Stark is put into jeopardy because of Robert-Baratheon-level anger and its response to hasty decision making.

Essentially, a couple of guys that thought ambitiously about the future didn't think that far ahead in the present... or the past, as it were... well, they didn't think too far ahead when it mattered.

The Princes That Were Promised are John and SeannieWan. Every week they tear apart Westeros and sift through the pieces to bring their Leal and Loyal Subjects the history of the Realm and The Known World from both George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's adaptation, Game of Thrones.

The Idiot's Guide to Southron Ambitions, Part 1 (11.1)

Mystery Knights to Tyroshi Strangling Devices

SPOILERS!!!

FOR ALL PUBLISHED BOOKS IN #GRRM'S A Song of Ice and Fire AS WELL AS ALL TELEVISED EPISODES OF HBO'S Game of Thrones...

Born amidst salt and smoke- Just off the Long Island Expressway- Beneath a bleeding star...

#TPTWP return to the abyss that is the tiny grey area of interest between the super-hit television adaptation and the source material fantasy novels- an abyss that forges these two mediums together and creates a glob of chit-chatting that interests both book-readers and show-watchers the same. If anyone can do it, it be The Princes That Were Promised.

The Wardens of Long Island return to tackle the Prelude to The War of the Usurper that is Rickard Stark and his Southron Ambitions. Are the Southron Ambitions a enormously complex plan to overthrow the Targaryen dynasty? Or are they simply Rickard Stark's desire to travel South during the really rough parts of Winter because his bones are aching and he doesn't quite feel as young as he used to and he would like to see some hot Dornish ladies in the medieval equivalent of bikinis before his idiot son (and heir) does something stupid with that old-gods-damn juvenile temper and complete lack of foresight and the tempertantrum in question puts Rickard in a position where he has to deal with problems he believed he was done dealing with once BenJen was chamberpot-trained?

Join John and SeannieWan as they metaphorically tear the roof off the son of a bitch that is the Stark Men!

The artwork for this episode of #TPTWP is titled ‘Brandon Stark- The Wild Wolf' and was created by Mike Hallstein. More of Mr. Hallstein’s incredible work can be found- Right The F’ Here…

The Tourney at Harrenhal (Sp11)

Pomp, Circumstance, The High Lords, and The Knight of The Laughing Tree

#TPTWP Royally Recorded this episode shortly after the conclusion of Season 6 of Game of Thrones. The material that tells us the story of both The Tourney at Harrenhal and The Knight of The Laughing Tree, however, can only be found in the source material, specifically A Storm of Swords.

While there are a plethora of clues both large and small that point to Jon Snow being the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, the story of the infamous (and... famous) Tourney at Harrenhal and The Knight of The Laughing Tree were the best source to the romance between The Prince of Dragonstone and The Lady of Winterfell. That is, they were until HBO's adaptation, Game of Thrones, came out and told viewers that R + L = J was both true AND a legit and lawful marriage, making Jon Snow a legit and lawful heir to the Iron Throne.

The cover art for this episode is titled The Knight of The Laughing Tree and was created by Austrailian artist Modji-33. Find more fantastic work HERE
