Teach Your Children Well, Hoster Tully! (13.2)

Hook, Line, and Sinker, P.2; or; John v. Catelyn, Round 2

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...

...and so The Princes That Were Promised journey down a familiar road full of rage upon which the fine line between the necessity for foolishness to move forward the story and the awe at the finely written thoughtlessness of one noble lady, in particular, is razor-sharp.

Yes, John has been waiting for this episode almost as long as he has been waiting for The Winds of Winter.

A deep analysis of Catelyn Stark has been a royally gestating idea since the beginning of #TPTWP. It was a joke until it wasn't.

In the first part of Hook, Line, and Sinker, The Wardens of Long Island cover all the bases. The history of The Riverlands is kept brief and the lead-up to the rule of House Tully as Lords Paramount of the Trident is explained with the hopes of shedding light on the dark crevices and recesses that make up the analytical mind of The Lady of Winterfell- Catelyn Tully Stark.

In Part 2, that generation of Tully that is over like The Beatles is looked at through the magnifying glass of judgement. The rule of Hoster Tully, his relationship with his brother The Blackfish, and the childhood of his children is dissected as The Princes That Were Promised gear up for the rollercoaster that is the narrative of Catelyn.

The artwork for this episode is titled Hoster Tully and was created by artist Matthew Klaas deWitte. His outstanding fantasy artwork can be found right the F HERE

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.

Dragons Everywhere (P.1)

Moqorro's Vision for Tyrion Lannister- Prophesies, Dreams, and Visions

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...

Tho hath chosen wisely and forged thineself upon the very anals of history!

This is the first edition of the new series of podcast episodes from The Princes That Were Promised. This series takes a close look at the many prophesies that dwell among the written words of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, as well as dreams and visions that can also be read as prophetic.

Each edition of Prophesies, Visions, and Dreams will feature one of the aforementioned and see it dissected verbally by John and SeannieWan.

The first prophecy #TPTWP take a look at is a passage of dialogue by Moqorro, the Red Priest of R'hllor whose destiny brings him together with Tyrion Lannister, Jorah Mormont, and Victarion Greyjoy over the course of A Dance With Dragons (the fifth and, let's face it, probably the last volume of ASoIaF). This prophecy is given to Tyrion regarding his future place among the Dragons.

The artwork for this episode is by the very talented Aleksandar Radovanovic. You can find much more ASoIaF-inspired work over at his webpage.

The Lost Jedi (Sp20)

The Royal Discussion RE: The Most Royally Anticipated Film of The Year

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...

IN ADDITION TO ALL THE ASoIaF AND GoT SPOILERS, THOU SHALT BE ROYALLY EXPOSED TO STAR WARS SPOILERS... ALL RELEASED EPISODES.

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

John and SeannieWan have been on an extended vacation. However, it wasn't a vacation so much as it was the opposite of a vacation and involved a lot of important, top-secret work... which may or may not have been top-secret... or important.

Before continuing the prophesized path of Westerosi discussion, #TPTWP feel royally compelled to comment upon Rian Johnson's attempt at a Star Wars film.

Where does Episode VIII stack up among the Saga? Is Kylo Ren still an intimidating heel? Or is has he turned away from the Dark Side? Or has he become Anakin Skywalker with dark hair and a bigger nose? What is the deal with Snoke? Does you Snoke Theory suck? Who are Rey's parents? Is Rey short for a longer name...? Like... is it a nickname... or... Like... who started calling her Rey? Who was she waiting for if she doesn't know who her parents are? Who taught her how to tie her shoes? Do Star Wars characters tie shoes? Are there shoe-laces in the future? Does Star Wars take place in the future? Obviously it does not- it takes place *"A Long Time Ago..."

Some of these questions are addressed and some ignored. To find out which is which and if any of this means anything... including Episodes I through VII... give a listen to The Wardens of Long Island... The Watchers on The Couch... The Lords of Chit-Chat...

Merry BRAN-mas and Best Wishes on An- OTHER New Year! (Sp19)

GRRM is Gonna Know if You're Naughty or NIce! So read NotABlog and Stuff Stockings with Bran Stark Memes!

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...

'Tis the season to research the Westerosi equivalent of Christmas and come to the sad realization that there is no equivalent. There is nothing like Christmas in America and all the Holidays that try to include Americans that don't celebrate Christmas in the gift-buying frenzy.

This year, our holiday episode is waaaaaay toned down... but in a sense, it is the most interesting dialogue between The Promised Princes that you will have heard in 2017. And here's the rub: this was recorded in December of 2016- over a year ago!

Listen as John and SeannieWan discuss some thoughts on Season 7 and immediately realize if they were correct! Use thine ears to experience a metaphorical explosion of words regarding Bran Stark, Daenery's Dragons, and The Others. And what would the Holiday Season be if #TPTWP didn't drop that verbal assault on the guy that wrote a year end blog about how upset he was that he didn't finish writing his book... a year before this recording, which was a year ago!

Happy Holidays to the listeners and loyal subjects of The Princes That Were Promised! Thank you for subscribing, spreading the word, giving the show a chance, and listening to what #TPTWP say!

Looking forward to a War for the Dawn in 2018!

The artwork for this episode is titled Bran Stark and Summer and was created by Joshua Cairos. This is the first time the same artist has been used for consecutive episodes and the reason is that this artist is dynamite! Find more of his work right the F HERE.

The rest of this episode's cover-art was created by some sick b@$%ard who created a meme that, while funny, could be considered despicable from a certain point of view, and whoever took a photograph of George Lucas in a tuxedo at some Hollywood event... presumably a Star Wars Prequel Premiere.

Kings Landing, the capital city of Westeros, and most of the Riverlands (as usual in any military conflict) is all F'd up because of war. The men responsible for the Rebellion that went and messed up the Realm suddenly find themselves with the responsibility of cleaning everything up.

Robert Baratheon went around kicking ass in battle but finds himself having to kick ass politically and the young Lord of Storm's End and now King of The Seven Kingdoms is just not mentally constructed for such things. Ned Stark is super pissed off that Tywin Lannister and his son Jaime have won the war for his side using deceipt and treason. Jon Arryn just wants everybody to get along. Doran and Oberyn are already plotting the downfall of House Baratheon before Robert is even crowned...

OH! And Stannis has had a difficult year.

TPTWP bring a conclusion to Robert's Rebellion and go through all the aftermath and issues the new regime faces.

The artwork for this episode is titled Usurper and was created by Noble--6. His work can be found right HERE.
