The face...and remembrance

Warning: There may be spoilers, but there will definitely be beauty.

The other night watching Game of Thrones (my reading in the novels coinciding just a few paces ahead of the TV show), I realized that Rob Stark's love interest was not the same as in the novels (or is it?) Critical plot points, characterizations, blah blah blah aside, what I noticed was how much the actress reminds me of who I imagine Zep to be:

The actress, Oona Chaplin, comes from acting royalty, and her presence on screen is luminous. And though character design is vastly contrasting: Zep is all light, white, and golden, while Talisa is dark, lithe and more Night Elf than Draenei. But to me, this is Zep: sweet, healing, through the blood and muck, and her graciousness shines through.

This is when I should just shut up and write: I have the luxury of a long weekend, thank you to the brave soliders, male, females, husbands, mothers, brothers, and sisters--no matter what anyone says about the US policies, and I have plenty to say myself, I will never disparage the men and women who serve. You are my real heroes, and you have my undying gratitude.

  1. No, all we hear of Rob is that he fell in love and married when he was supposed to be marrying a Frey. And she is beautiful isn't she? And... well, maybe you can write a story about Zep's Rob :D ... as long as it doesn't end as tragically...

  2. Awww! Zep does have a story to tell, and if I get off my lazy writing fingers, gave myself a deadline of this weekend! :)

  3. Oh good, stories! I will wait patiently for Zep's story.


Thank you for your comment!
