    THE PUNISHER now a Netflix series

    Recently finished this. I liked it but I do agree with many of the criticisms. The acting gets the highest accolade. Bernthal and Barnes are outstanding.

    This was a warning not well heeded, says I (unless the goal was rock bottom)

It was a mighty leap to rise above a soaring Fragile Bird and stay there at the culmination of a long tough battle between them. Jez Bell consolidated third place and Castellan just managed to hold off a late surge by She Who Must Be Obeyed and Howlin’ Howland. RhaenysBee improved after a rocky start and pulled back enough points to be amongst the congestion in the middle of the pack. Raisin’ Bran said his farewells after a barnstorming start, while Count Balerion joined us mid-game, providing a welcome addition and honeyed chicken graced us with his occasional presence as he dipped in and out towards the end. Thanks to everyone for partaking. It has been a lot of fun! Here is a comprehensive list of the autobiographies: PART A: won by Jez Bell Lovers A Sibling’s Devotion By Cersei Lannister A rocksniffer title Outcast: Assumed Dead By Jon Connington A Jez Bell title Pricks, Nitwits, Nincompoops By Olenna Tyrell A Raisin' Bran title Aemon: Voluntarily Chained By Aemon Targaryen A Jez Bell title Tully’s Spit ‘Pon Me?! Die!! By Walder Frey A honeyed chicken title What Lies Beyond Winter By Catelyn Stark A Howlin' Howland title Where Honor’s Headed... By Eddard Stark A RhaenysBee title PART B: won by rocksniffer Soldiers Learn Discipline MY WAY By Stannis Baratheon A Raisin’ Bran title Never Even Liked Children By Old Nan A Fragile Bird title Old Knight’s Fiery Tale By Barristan Selmy A Castellan title Wounded Mockingbird: Duel’s Indelible Damage By Petyr Baelish A Jez Bell title Lessons With Matches: Teaching Glamour! By Melisandre A Fragile Bird title Walls and Men By Mance Rayder A Howling’ Howland title OBSCURING THE SUN - Retaliation Begins! By Doran Martell A rocksniffer title I gave the Mance Rayder title to Howlin' Howland on the basis that although rocksniffer's title scored the same number of points and first place votes, H'H's title acquired more votes.

    Well it turns out I'm not doing anything this evening and it seems I have 9 votes from 9 entrants to the round. I'll go ahead and count up unless anyone has any objections?

Fragile Bird is still in the hunt. It’s going to be a tight finish. Howlin’ Howland was the joint winner of another hard-fought round. It seems as though two similar ideas from H’H and Sniffer, and then from Jez and the Count, dominated the round but consequentially got a near-even spread of the votes. Once more, do check my tallies in case any mistakes were made.

    Hi all, Sorry, I'm rushing about today and it could be nearer to midnight tonight UK time when I get round to it all. So you still have about 5-6 hours.

    Exactly what the Bird said, because I can't say it better than she did.

    PART B ROUND SEVEN: DORAN MARTELL Doran has put his intellectually keen mind to writing an autobiography, presumably not to be released until after his long term schemes come to fruition. It is to be his vindication against the widely expressed charge of his alleged inaction. What is his carefully considered title?

A high-flying Bird stays above the rest, a salty old dawg leaps after her. Meanwhile; Rhaenys scored strongly, achieving double figures without the extra three. The Obeyed One and Castellan also amassed some points and the Count continues to improve having recently joined us. Jez is still within touching distance of the frontrunners and Howland continues to be unlucky. honeyed chicken joined us for this round and we always welcome him back to the game with open arms. Please check my tallies. Mance is coming

    Still missing a number of players. I can wait a few hours. At 11pm UK time I'm going to count up. That leaves 2 and a half hours.

    Acrophobia 34A&B: COMPLETE

    I will take the suggestion under consideration. It is another excellent round. I don't want to sully the integrity of the 5 point bonus I gave out last round though. Everyone has upped their game, that is for sure!

    PART B: ROUND SIX MANCE RAYDER The Mance is writing his memoirs. You may decide if he is doing so before the glamouring or after and whether this changes his perspective. His life story and unique context should make for a fascinating read and potentially a great title. What title does he bestow upon his legacy?
