Fabulous Freelancer Friday: Musings and Job Postings for the Week of 3/4/19-3/8/19

Hello, everyone! Friday is here, which means I’ve returned with another edition of thoughts and job findings.

As for blog news, I’ve updated the Contact page. I’m also going to be adding a new category within the next few weeks, “Fabulous Freelancer Fix-It” posts! The plan is to occasionally share information that I’ve learned along the way through my gardening/arts & crafts/decorating hobbies!

MUSINGS

  • This week, HBO finally (no pun intended) released the official Season 8 trailer for Game of Thrones. Of course, that launched a bunch of theories (because that’s just what we Thronies do).
    • I (at least currently) subscribe to the theory that Samwell Tarly is actually the Prince That Was Promised.
      • After all, Samwell was the first person to kill a White Walker and figure out that dragonglass is what does it.
      • He also took his family’s sword, Heartsbane, with him when he and Gilly left after being so rudely by his father.
        • Consider a quote from the excellent article Michael Walsh wrote for Nerdist, “Understanding Game of Thrones’ Prince What Was Promised Prophecy.”: “They say her [Nissa Nissa, wife of Azor Ahai] soul combined with the Red Sword of Heroes when he tempered the blade in her heart. The great sacrifice worked, and Lightbringer, said to be a sword of living fire, helped Azor Ahai win back the day.”
          • See the heart theme here?
      • Now, after watching the new trailer, I’m all the more convinced of it because of what I consider to be a subtle nod to said theory…
  • Beginning at 0:29, Bran says to Samwell, “Everything you did brought you where you are now.” At 0:31, just while he’s saying that, we see “Dolorous” Eddison Tollett, Tormund Giantsbane, and Beric Dondarion looking at something, with Beric holding a flaming sword (remember that description of Lightbringer). Then, just after, we see Samwell turning in worry, and hear Bran say, “Where you belong. Home.”
