Round 2 Authors and Results

1. Catelyn: Insides twisting... keen agony...    PyroclasticFlow    1+1+1+1 = 4
    Arianne: A nibble for two? 
    Catelyn: Wise princess!

2. Catelyn: I think "kings" are aggravating!    rocksniffer    1+1+1+1+2+1+3 = 10
    Arianne: Noted...father's too!
    Catelyn: Wanna partner?

3. Catelyn: I think King's announcement arises neutrality.    lil' ghost    1+1 = 2
    Arianne: Fighting, that's what's promised.

4. Catelyn: I'm thinking kingdoms again.                Dolorous Gabe    1+1+3+2+3 = 10
    Arianne: A northern friendship to win power?

5. Arianne: Importuning tenacious kings?    Lady Blizzardborn    1+1+1+3+1+1 = 8
    Catelyn: Another abortive notion.
    Arianne: Female talk?
    Catelyn: With pleasure.

6. Catelyn: I'd try "knowing" Arys, Arianne...*nods*.    Fragile Bird    1+1+2+2 = 6
    Arianne: Fornicating? T'would work, perfectly!

7. Arianne: Interesting tournament! Knights are always nice - fascinating - to watch.    Julia H.    1+1+3+3+2 = 10
    Catelyn: Presumably.

8. Arianne: Iron Throne King alternative?                                      Castellan    1+1+3+3+2+3+4 = 17
    Catelyn: Alliances needed. Factions trash winning potential.

9. Catelyn: Is the King avoiding attacking northwards?     Howlin' Howland    1+1+2+1+2+2 = 9
    Arianne: Foolish tournament's willful procrastination.

 

Standings

1. Howlin' Howland    19+9 = 28
1. Castellan                11+17 = 28
3. Julia H.                   14+10 = 24
4. Dolorous Gabe       8+10 = 18

5. Rocksniffer             4+10 = 14

8. PyroclasticFlow      2+4 = 6

What a difference one round makes! Castellan gets an overwhelming win, moving her into a tie for first with Howlin' Howland. Julia H. and Dolorous Gabe both have solid rounds to round out the top 4. Meanwhile, the chasing pack seems to have bunched up a bit. There is still lots of game left to play, so don't go anywhere.

Round 4 Theon Greyjoy sails with Janos Slynt

As the situation at Winterfell worsens, Theon Greyjoy, Prince of Winterfell, ponders the advice of Maester Luwin to abandon the castle and take the black. After everything he has accomplished, it would be shameful to throw his prize away. However, the northmen would never forgive him for butchering their princes and he was not getting any help from the other Ironborn forces. Meanwhile, Rodrick Cassel is assembling a small army to take back Winterfell. In the end, he chooses the path of least bloodshed and surrenders Winterfell in order to join the Night’s Watch.

No black brothers are passing by Winterfell in these perilous times, and no guards can be spared to escort the turncloak to Castle Black. But, some of the dispersing soldiers are headed toward White Harbor, where Theon is escorted to take ship to Eastwatch. Coincidentally, the ship also has other Night’s Watch recruits aboard, among them Janos Slynt, former commander of the City Watch in Kingslanding and short time lord of Harrenhal. Meanwhile, "m'lord" has learned of Theon’s activities at Winterfell. Thinking to gain an ally, the upjumped butcher’s whelp approaches the squid prince, what is said?

You know, guys, I've almost come down to flipping a coin here. There are so many I like. Once again, every time I read the list I want to switch my answers. I'm really trying hard here.

1st.   7. Tyrion: I only tried becoming my father.  I settled on this because this was the Purple Wedding, and I can just hear a sarcastic, wry Peter Dinklage mocking his father's actions at the Red Wedding...and then saying 'but it wasn't me'. I don't know why it doesn't have more love.

2nd.   5. Tyrion: Innocent of treason.
                 Brienne: Backbone, my friend.   Really hard to choose between the two, well written, nice use of treason without having M for murder, but 7 had the edge.

3rd.  9. Brienne: Imp...
            Tyrion: Ogress...
            Brienne: Talkin' big...
            Tyrion: Mercy fuck?      So, so hard to pick just one for third.  This made me laugh the most.

A shout out to #1. I hate seeing an entry with no votes, but I could not quite make sense of the 'fails'. :(  I liked the thought of Brienne overreacting.

    Brienne: ...Fool.

4. Tyrion: I ought to be madly FLATTERED????????     Castellan     1+1+2 = 4

5. Tyrion: Innocent of treason.         Julia H.     1+1+3+3+2+1+2+1 = 14

    Brienne: Fiend!

7. Tyrion: I only tried becoming my father.     Dolorous Gabe     1+1+3+3 = 8

    Tyrion: Ogress...
    Brienne: Talkin' big...
    Tyrion: Mercy fuck?

Standings

1. Julia H.                   24+14 = 38
2. Fragile Bird            14+21 = 35
3. Howlin' Howland    28+6 = 34
4. Castellan                28+4 = 32
5. Dolorous Gabe       18+8 = 26
6. rocksniffer              14+10 = 24
7. Lady Blizzardborn  14+6 = 20
8. PyroclasticFlow      6+3 = 9
9. lil' ghost                  6+2 = 8

And again the standings undergo a vast change. Fragile Bird's poetic submission receives a resounding victory over the competition, catapulting her from 5th to 2nd place, only trailing 3 points behind Julia H, who led her vanguard to the top of the standings. Though dropping to 3rd, Howlin' Howland is not far behind, with the chasing pack hot on his heels. With 3 rounds to play, who will take the championship home?

Well played @Fragile Bird

And thanks for recognising the sarcasm in my entry. I feel now that I should have either italicised "tried" or put it in quotation marks.

Thanks also to Castellan for the vote.
