++ In case anyone hasn't heard by now, TWOP is shutting down. I haven't been on that site in years, I remember visiting there during the heyday of certain fandoms (Veronica Mars and Heroes respectively) and read the episode recaps and went through the boards of other shows, even participated in polls. Issues occurred that made the site not fun at times (from overbearing mods to obnoxious biased recappers), but it was a great source of snark and fannish excitement for the most part when I last visited. So reading that it'll be closed down for good makes it sort of sad in a way, like it marks a certain end of an era for fandom.

++ George R.R. Martin has released yet another excerpt from The Winds of Winter. Spoilers, obviously, and caution for some rather uncomfortable things being presented in this chapter.

++ Kit Harington wants more male nudity on Game of Thrones, and to this I say amen! This has been discussed plenty of times before from others, because it's true that there's definitely an imbalance with having only women being completely nude in scenes whereas the men are still fully clothed, not only during sex scenes but also in moments when nudity is rather unnecessary and only done to give HBO their nudity quota. And it's always women, never the men, and if men are featured being undressed it's only a glimpse and never in the roaming manner that is done with women. It's not just the fans addressing this issue, but also the actors. Equal opportunity, it's all we ask. How is that so difficult?
