Casting Director: The Magicians (The Magicians #1)

Casting Director: The Magicians (The Magicians #1)

CastingDirectorSo I was inspired by Angelfall to start this new feature where I basically ‘cast’ people for the imaginary film in my head! Yes, I know, terribly exciting.

So think of this as The Magicians meets attractive 20 somethings.

Quentin: Jay Baruchel

So, skinny, geeky and whines a lot, Quentin is a very special character and I’m pretty sure, after seeing The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, that Baruchel would…

"I feel like it’s kind of sad that she had to watch that - for Arya and Sansa both, actually. It would seem that they’re bloodthirsty for revenge, you know? But they’re almost just confused as to why they feel how they’re feeling, and they’re surprised by how they’re feeling as well. It’s just that first episode when you get to see how Arya is grieving and how Sansa is grieving. They’re both very similar. A silly audience member will be like, “Oh, look, Sansa’s crying again,” when actually this scene is very interesting. It’s very interesting to hear what she has to say about it and how she deals with it. She’s not crying in pain; it’s a very different Sansa from what we’ve seen before. Same with Arya. She’s not bloodthirsty for revenge. She’s not crazy at all. She’s just like, “Why? Why do I feel the way I do?” People don’t read enough into some of the characters’ decisions, I think. They just think it’s very black and white. It’s never black and white on Game of Thrones. If you think it’s black and white, you’re watching it wrong."

harryh-styles asked: hi where did you find the house Martell from your sidebar and is it because it's your favorite house or it is from some online test to see which house you belong to (HP style)?

tyaene:

Hi! I made it with Photoshop cutting it from a picture with all the house sigils, I can’t look for the link to that pic right now, but if you search through my “misc asoiaf” tag you should find it (don’t do it if you don’t want to see book spoilers though). And yes, it’s because it’s my favorite house.

House Martell for the win! My fave too.

Among creative types—specifically authors—there is a lot of focus on aesthetic, and building a brand, and it results in a loss of authenticity within the writing they’re trying to promote. This is not a universal rule, but we are starting to lose touch with what it means to…

A Well-Read Jaunt: Platform 9 ¾

A Well-Read Jaunt: Platform 9 ¾

awellreadjauntI spent this past Saturday in London, which was my first real time in London actually. My excuse for visiting the city was to attend a conference, however, it was boring as can be and I ditched it half-way and jumped into the Underground to explore.

Somehow I ended up at Kings Cross Station, which was completely by mistake, I was trying to get to the Picadilly line and I think I took the train in…

"A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called “leaves”) imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time ― proof that humans can work magic."
