Tearing Apart Westeros and Sifting Through the Pieces...

The Night Has Been Fairly Dark, Thank You For Asking (Sp25)

AOL Is Still Around and Will Destroy Westeros

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 Princes That Were Promised chime in with their Royal-A** opinions of the Game of Thrones prequel shows that are seemingly all in production! What happened?!?

It has a bit to do with HBO's new owners- America OnLine!

What? Yup. AOL. Well... TimeWarner technically but there is no AOL in AOLTimeWarner without America OnLine... or AOL.

Question 1- Does anybody use AOL?

Question 2- How does that qualify AOL to operate a Premium Cable Network? Not just any premium cable network but THE Premium of Premium Cable Networks, HBO.

Lots of corporations, lots of letters, lots of Westeros... and in the center of it all- The Great Procrastonist, The American Tolkien, The Turtle himself: Mr. George R. R. Martin.

What in the Seven Hells is going on? #TPTWP try to figure it all out.

Also, James is an amazing band.

Also, Kit Harrington is a great actor.

Also, we comment on the #MeToo movement, though prior to the James Gunn situation... which sucks.

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.
