Today, I begin my reread of ASoIaF books 4 & 5 combined according to boiledleather ‘s recommendation. I’ve finally finished my year long wait to reread A Storm of Swords, so I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time.
While working on this week’s comic, I came across this account of GRRM’s reading from forthcoming The World of Ice and Fire of the history of the Westerlands, including and up to Tywin’s rule of the Rock. Found this anecdote hilarious, and apropos of Tywin and Tytos’ relationship, and had to draw this ^_^
"Shortly after, Jeyne gave birth to Tywin. Rumor has it that Tywin bit Tytos on the finger when he tried to rub his head"
