Fan fun with Game of Thrones character meeting the lead character in the Gastar novellas… House of Black and White. For a place of such mystery, it wasn’t really guarded and had almost nothing inside.

About every hour she’d hear a blood curdling scream of something terrible outside; it could be anything. Zermon tortured demons often, some escaped, most were captured and tortured again.
Asha (Yara in Game of Thrones) Greyjoy visits the lead character of the Gastar novellas to discuss the the actions of her ancestors and the fate of her family.
**Spoiler Alert** all Game of Thrones non-readers!! As a bona fide addict of “A Song of Ice and Fire,” as the theories pour out, sometimes I get a good laugh, sometimes I get new insight into this very long, sophisticated story, and sometimes I feel like my brain will explode over some of the over-the-top, […]
The lead character of the Gastar novellas meets King Stannis Baratheon and his trusted companions. Shevata leaned back in her chair inside her underworld office, frowning at the demon as he delivered the message. “Stannis? Really? Send them in.” A well built, stern-faced man in armor walked in, followed by a woman wearing a long […]
A handsome young man appeared in her doorway. “My lady, I was told I could find you here.” His voice shook a little and he seemed shy.
As a fan of George R. R. Martin’s books “A Song of Ice and Fire” and the cable series “Game of Thrones” I follow other fans in cyberspace, with spoiler Facebook pages for we readers (don’t worry, not in this blog), and the numerous fun fan pages with hilarious memes. Like it or hate it, Game of Thrones to me, as a series doesn’t take itself so seriously
Catelyn Stark meets with the lead character of the Gastar novellas. A tall wingless demon stood outside of Shevata’s hideout in Hell; a comfortable apartment with gilded velvet furniture. A desk stood in the middle for some bookkeeping and the few rejections Zermon had her review before exiling souls from eternal doom. “She’s waiting inside.” […]
Shevata leaned back on the armrest of the obsidian throne. “Zermon, no more savages!”
“I’ll remind you that you released the last one?” Zermon rolled his eyes looking over a short man brought before them in chains.
“If you want to drop this one in the pit, then do it.” Shevata attempted to jump down to leave, but Zermon held her back.
“No, little devil. Let’s meet this man.” He handed her the scroll. She glanced a scowl as she unrolled it and read
Regardless of the story, is it historical romance, sci-fi, Dark Fantasy, or documentary, somewhere in a marriage if there is infidelity, there will be controversy. Even in the most accepted of cultures of arranged marriages and multiple wives, one wife “trumps” another wife usually over when they married and how many sons were born, depending on the culture.
Shevata felt underwhelmed by one of the most unassuming men she had ever seen. The tall, balding man strolled in with quiet confidence, wearing a button down shirt and trousers, with no weapons. Other than taking directions from the demon that led him inside, he seemed completely unafraid. He motioned to the chair in front of her desk. “May I?” She nodded and he sat, crossing his legs.
So many aspects of stories reel in the readers of books or viewers of films or shows, be it action, fantasy, drama, horror, but on the short list of it all is the lure of intrigue, when we must know what happens next and a few hours sleep or loads of laundry won’t stop us. Many daytime television dramas I recall watching as a kid not missing them so much when school started, but during summer I hated
Shevata’s face froze as she read the length scroll. One of the higher demons sat a stone table beside the obsidian throne where she sat and placed an elaborate goblet of gold and filled it with a green liquid from a silver pitcher. She shook her head at the demon. “Only Zermon can make this happen. Only he can create a higher demon.” The demon completed his task, making certain the
I’m having a little fan fiction fun with the lead character of Black Sails, Captain Flint, meet the lead character of the Gastar novellas in the Underworld. Let’s see how well they get along: Shevata leaned back on Zermon’s huge obsidian throne. “No, I don’t want to see anyone else! Find Zermon and tell him I said to come do his own job.”
When the “Gangs of New York” film came out, the documentaries followed behind, uncloaking the history and reminding me again of my sore lack of historical knowledge but appreciation of it as it obtain it now. Of course, with my vast hard science educational background, I had no clue there was a “Five Points” in […]
With my non-stop film/novel addiction, strong characterization baits me to a story better than any fishhook. Once I’m introduced to the world, the situation, and the people (or non humans) I’m ready to know them. What are their backgrounds? What are their secrets? What force that drives the plot also drives these characters? I posted […]
This is the second excerpt from the upcoming third Gastar novella. Many new and old characters maneuver around Shevata’s life, making plans for her before she returns to her home city of Gastar, in hopes of setting aside her past existence as a veteran assassin to live as a normal person: Shevata, lead character assassin […]
“Layer Cake” As a fan of fiction, I applaud stories that reel me in with not only unexpected endings, but with characters that lay low making the biggest difference when the story is said and done. The recent example I’ve written about the most recently is the history based “The White Queen” with Richard of […]
King Robert Baratheon stands before the lead Gastar characters Shevata and Zermon awaiting judgment for the afterlife. Will Hell be his future? “Zermon, I disagree with this. King Robert Baratheon wasn’t perfect but he doesn’t belong down here in Hell, especially before you in final judgment. Let me speak to him first.” The large demon […]
Shevata, lead character of the Gastar Series This except from the upcoming third Gastar novella features pirates! The ship rocked slightly as the sailors pushed it quietly away from the docks with poles. The rising tide would take them out further to sea at sunrise, within the hour. Four men sat around the mast, looking […]
The Bastard of Bolton has Theon Greyjoy in a bad way in “A Song of Ice and Fire” and “Game Of Thrones.” Let’s see if the lead characters in the Gastar novellas can help Theon out a bit. “Are you kidding me?” Zermon lumbered behind Shevata as she turned the lock of the gate behind […]
“Jurassic Park” When Indie writer John Locke published his “how to” book about selling books, I’ve noted before an important point he made: You may not be a great writer, but you will need to be an entertaining writer. (Paraphrased). Putting aside any controversy about Locke, he clearly writes entertaining novels that people like. His […]
As we fiction fans experience stories through the years, I think of the “good guys” as a time of youth and innocence, “the anti-hero” as an audience-specific protagonist (Thomas Covenant fans, are you still out there?), which leaves a very often used and popular protagonist: The not-so-good guys. My favorite example is from the book […]
I want to thank Andy again for offering me an article again; as well I’m honored to share my blog space for another of her outstanding historic medieval essays. Check out her blog with some great visual: http://medievalessays.blogspot.com/2014/02/the-king-and-his-horse.html?spref=tw Richard, Duke of Gloucester, “The White Queen” One of the most important aspects of chivalry is the […]
The infamous “Kingslayer” Jaime Lannister continues to deal with his reputation with the lead character in the Gastar novellas: “Get these out of here.” Shevata handed a tall, slender wingless demon a heavy ledger dripping blood. “No more contracts! You idiots actually write them in blood, which is impractical for ink, it smears, drips, and […]
Tyrion “The Imp” Lannister, like anyone from his House, pays his debts, meets the lead characters from the Gastar novellas, one that excels in collecting debts. “Shae? Where are you?” The short man whispered, when he didn’t see her immediately in the bedroom he’d arranged to meet her. The wine sat untouched with a pair […]
The love-to-hate little evil King Joffrey of “A Song of Ice and Fire” books and “Game of Thrones” series meets the Gastar series lead character in the afterlife. Let’s have some fun with His Grace: Shevata sat in Zermon’s huge chair before the huge fire pit surrounded by a smooth black terrace. Though she found […]
“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” The Gastar lead characters meet the dwarves at the Lonely Mountain: The group of dwarves looked over the odd pair with suspicion. “Exactly who are you?” Asked one of them, with a long white beard. The tall, horned demon opened his mouth to speak, but the teenage girl with […]
Arya Stark “Game of Thrones” Arya Stark meets the Gastar series heroine Shevata and fellow assassin. As they walked away from the Twins the following morning, the sun shone bright as if the horrors of the Red Wedding never happened according to the bright sky. Arya looked up. “It’s not fair. How can she sun […]
“Anna Karenina” Many editors, readers, and my mother told me numerous times an important part of a story is a love interest and keeping Shevata from falling for an Edward Cullen-like character is a potential weakness in “Act of Redemption.” As a writer and creator of a story, I couldn’t give my lead character a […]
