These signs equate the entirety of my childhood literary bookfeels
How amazing would it be to have these up in your garden?
Imagine a child’s face upon seeing these. They’d just light up <3
a book fountain in Budapest
this is one of the coolest fountains I’ve ever seen
Where would you want to live in the ASoIaF. world?
*THE ISLE OF FACES*
To explain my choice:
1) Being half irish and having lived in ireland for many years, and having heard so many local fairy/ghost stories from my relatives, I’ve always had a love of all things fantastical and mythical in any shape or form.
That being said after reading A Game of Thrones for the first time and looking into the back stories of Westeros, I’ve become fascinated with the Children of the Forest and the Weirwood trees, mostly because they’re VERY similar to the Fairy Trees I’ve read about in Gaelic Folklore.
2) If I had to choose between Westeros, Essos or Sotheros - I’d definitely choose Westeros as it has the green forested landscape I love (and isnt ridiculously hot)
Essos is beautiful, dont get me wrong but Im not comfortable with a) slavery and b) the chances of being slaughtered by a Dothraki Horde
Sotheros, of course is a no brainer - uninhabited jungle full of unknown beasties.
3) Anyone who knows me knows I can be quite … reclusive :P opting to sitting in quiet corners of coffee shops, bars or a grassy knoll doodling/sketching over coffee instead of going out to clubs and getting sandwiched between creeps. I LOVE forest areas - one good point to the Isle :)
On top of that I’m ridiculously bad at conflict - I would be useless in a fight - though I am actually good at archery (for some weird reason) I not the fittest person so would probably die quite quickly :P
SOOO I’d want to be in a place secluded and well protected with lots of protective cover.
And where people would be reluctant to visit.
So the Isle is perfect for me :)
Covered in a forest of Weirwood, surrounded by a lake, thoroughly creepy to deter people - altogether very mysterious.
Build a nice secluded place, fish, hunt and occasionally scare the life out of some townspeople when I stop by for a visit ;D
