PSA: Martin's latest novella set in Westeros was released just a couple of weeks ago. I discovered this only a few days ago, and of course instantly purchased it and swallowed it whole.

Wow, the Greyjoy one just looks like a bunch of elaborate linked penises.

Dear people who draw snowflakes: eight-sided snowflakes make me sad.

Those are Kraken, but yeah...poor Reek.

My dragons ended up looking like developmentally disabled wolves. The Stark jokes write themselves.

[pedantry]
As far as I know snowflakes are mostly hexagonal or six-sided/branched with the exception of some triangular ones and also some 12-sided ones which are really paired up hexagonal flakes rotated 30 degrees against each other.

Maybe this is nitpickery but I do find that I appreciate things a lot more when I feel like there has been real effort and thought put into both concept and execution. Snowflakes being six-sided is something I find even a lot of kids to be aware of as something that's special about snowflakes.

Basically, what oulipian said. This makes me oddly sad.

I'll stop now.
Also, get off my currently non-snow-covered lawn.

Now I want these as my iPhone lock screen background. Just the patterns, on those gorgeous colored squares (where are *those* from?), with no text...

The dragon snowflake has three heads eight sides.

"Wow, the Greyjoy one just looks like a bunch of elaborate linked penises."

So, totally appropriate then.

Seriously, that background is so unlike anything we've seen in the series before that I figure they probably forgot to CGI the backdrop in post or something.
