SI.com: For you the Starks are heroes, and you told us a couple of months ago that they would be the NFL equivalent of the Giants since the Giants are your team. If we extrapolate this, who is Eli Manning in your universe?

Noted: I would not want John Watson to be my doctor. Guy is always running off somewhere and leaving someone else in charge of his practice. What if someone shows up who really, really wants to see Dr. Watson?! I am still enjoying the heck out of these stories. I’m going to watch some of the films, next.
Oh, darling, you certainly went out with a bang, didn’t you? And quite a body count! And revelations! Unexpected revelations! I don’t think I’ve ever read a book *this* cinematic before. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be on the proverbial edge of your seat.
Ohmanohmanohman, a couple of different stories have finally intersected! People I know meeting other people I know! I absolutely squealed out loud, yes I did.
I LOVE IT. But it is *such* a bummer of a book! And I’m only at page 416. I will note that the instance of “eyes melting and running down [his] cheeks” is pretty bad-ass, though.
What part are you up to?
Just “met” the second Jeyne.
