Literature

A calm and simple podcast celebrating all the major contributors to the ASOIAF fandom, having a different one guest on the show each episode

Episodes

IT'S HERE!! WE'VE DONE IT! And unsurprisingly, it takes the longest Scraps and Scrolls episode EVER to get it done. Yes, we are at the end of a Storm of Swords, which a good many people will refer to as the very best part of ASOIAF. And it's pretty hard to argue with them. In today's MONSTER episode we cover Tyrion's psyche-breaking revelation, his murder of evil, and his murder of good. Sam changes the future of the Night's Watch with some smart and sneaky lies. Jon Snow experiences the greatest reunion in the series before ascending to a new role. Sansa beautifully recreates her home before nearly being thrown through the Moon Door. And Merrett Frey's luck gets worse and worse as I get more and more excited for a return

Today's chapters are

- Tyrion XI

- Sam V

- Jon XII

- Sansa VII

- Merrett

Step aboard the Isle this week so I can firstly thank you for the amazing journey through this book, but also to discuss the many influences of Tywin's death, the Cotter vs Denys comparisons, I say bad things about Catelyn (WHAAA??),  we get a look at Sansa's snow strength, and then I say a good many more things about Catelyn.

What. A. Damn. Book.

It is quiz time once again! This time we are back with those dastardly closing sentences, this time for Clash of Kings. Will Daenerys chapters still act as gold dust? Are the Blackwater chapters going to be identifiable? How are you supposed to sort through all these Tyrions??

Even more excitedly, we've a bit of a change today as we welcome not one but two guests for a special head to head edition as Nate as Zach from the Brotherhood Without Manners podcast hop on to the Isle to do battle. We're very lucky to have the fellas join in the fun, and I am sure they, like I, would love to hear your scores too.

Here, in the middle of the end, we basically have two halves of today's episode. One is three chapters given over exclusively to Castle Black and the Night's Watch, while the other is us saying goodbye to two major characters with their final chapters. Perhaps the two major characters of this book. Jaime makes the largest choice of this book when he finally turns away from Cersei and breaks the cycle of abuse, while Arya leaves Westeros forever...but not before an incredibly written chapter of her gaining her first terrible vengeance. Back on the Wall one war ends, and another begins.

Today's chapters are:

- Jaime IX

- Jon X

- Arya XIII

- Sam V

- Jon XI

Step aboard the Isle for Mance being a great king, Oathkeeper being the best-named sword, Melisandre throwing flame attacks at eagles, and the brutal beauty of Arya and revenge. We're right into it here now at the end, surrounded by some of the very best that ASOIAF has to offer, so come on over and bask.

The monster episodes just keep coming! Would you expect anything less for the ending of a Storm of Swords? Today we only have four chapters, and it's still nearly as long as last week. Today is a day for tough questions on the nature of betrayal, the nature of unintended evil, and how big of a fist a human skull can withstand. We get a chapter full of Littlefinger creepiness (Get used to that), Jon defends the Wall against both wildlings AND bullies, Tyrion finishes one trial and begins another, and we wave goodbye to the wonderful Storm-Daenerys as she takes Meereen.

Today's chapters:

-Sansa VI

-Jon IX

-Tyrion X

-Daenerys VI

We have more Wall Warfare, the return of Lysa Tully, Oberyn's fighting skill in all its glory, dreams of Tyrion down in Dorne, and the judgment of Barristan Selmy and Jorah Mormont. Don't worry, that part is great!

Welcome back for an on-time post! What a big week. Passed 50 total episodes, passed 20,000 total downloads, and now I can present our longest Scraps and Scrolls episode ever as we cover the highs and lows of characters both in the capital and far out on the perimeter. Davos gambles all on a heist, Jon takes command of the Wall, Arya has the most important wolf dream of the series, Tyrion's trial begins, and Jaime starts his reign as Lord Commander.

Today's chapters are:

- Davos VI

- Jon VIII

- Arya XII

- Tyrion IX

- Jaime VIII

Jump aboard the Isle for talk of what Tyrion on the Wall would look like, on the inner tactics of Donal Noye and Jon Snow, and the bravery of one Davos Seaworth (and Maester Pylos!)

Here it is, finally, and thank you once more for your patience with the delay. Luckily, no rest for us as after just one week away we're back for another wedding in this King's Landing-obsessed episode. Today we talk about the defence of Shae, Sansa's inner strength and skills, and Jaime's embracing of being Lord Commander. But really, we're all here for one thing: the culmination of the epic struggle between Joffrey and Tyrion as we wave goodbye to one of the major villains in all literature with THE PURPLE WEDDING.
 
Today's chapters are: 
- Tyrion VII
- Sansa IV
- Tyrion VIII
- Sansa V
- Jaime VII
 
Hop aboard the Isle for some Patron episode news, a few brief seconds of me trying to do an Olenna Tyrell voice, and a lot of chapter sequencing talk. Not only that but Tyrion's wanting to be a Stark, Jaime & Tywin finally being on page together, Sansa's brief moment of freedom, and a LOT of mean talk about bloody Littlefinger.

You thought last week was long? Well we beat the record yet again! Yes, this is the longest Scraps and Scrolls ever, and for only FOUR chapters. But what a four chapter they are! After Davos gets his reading glasses on we get one of the very best three-chapter runs in all ASOIAF as the Triforce-Trio of Jon, Bran, and Daenerys all have major moments in some of my very favourite chapters in the series. Along with Dragonstone politics and kingly duties we get Castle Black going all Home Alone on the attacking wildlings, we get CREEPY in the Nightfort with Bran, some ghouls, and a talking gate, all before returning to Daenerys's grand conquest and her ever-improving leadership skills. This week it consists of a duel, an assassination attempt, and not one but TWO unmaskings. Phew. No wonder it's a long episode

Today's chapters:

-Davos V

-Jon VII

-Bran IV

-Daenerys V

What better way to get over Red Wedding gloom. Come, join me on the Isle for a bit of Patron news, where Davos beats out Tyrion and Ned as a Hand, a type of battle we've never seen before at the Wall, the possible futures of the Nightfort, and Daenerys going from strength to strength to strength, as well as Barristan proving that every single story you've heard about him is dead on.

Yes. It's true. We are here. It's Red Wedding week. Uh oh. Join me above an Isle filled with black clouds as we trudge our way through one of the most major events in all ASOIAF. It is devastating, it is complex, and it's going to require all of us. Yep, there's a reason this is such a long episode. Come for reunions at the Wall, Joffrey getting owned, Sandor showing off...and some other stuff I don't want to mention.

Today's chapters are:

- Jon VI

- Catelyn VI

- Arya X

- Catelyn VII

- Arya XI

- Tyrion VI

Unite, fellow Green Folk, for Jon's return to Castle Black, for the complete ineptitude of the Lannister family playing council, for dreams of what might have been in Robb had just kept on marching, and absolutely everything to do with the Red Wedding. Here we go people. Let's do this
