This is a site for writers, not for readers. Readers love to be immersed in a story, and they love the kick that comes at the end – the moment that pulls the whole meaning of the story together. Writers always keep half their brain detached, thinking how do they do that? It’s like magicians watching a fellow magician. Normal people in the audience of a magic show might wonder how they did that, but actually they’d prefer not to know. Magicians usually know immediately what the trick will be and how it’s done, and they’re interested in the technique, the stagecraft and delivery, whether there’s anything they can learn, perhaps how popular their rival is. Consequently, magicians can never enjoy – or even watch – a magic show the same way a normal person can, and writers can’t enjoy (or read) a story the same way a reader can. It’s the price we pay.
Since this blog analyses stories and fiction from a writer’s perspective, expect spoilers at every blind corner. We won’t warn, we won’t equivocate, we won’t care. If you don’t want to risk having the last episode of Game of Thrones ruined, stay away. If you’re more interested in how Game of Thrones works as drama, you’ve come to the right place.
