Mab is Laughing Right Now by Metalarc09 Mab is Laughing Right Now by Metalarc09
Another meme. I just had to. I don't know how many DF fans know about Game of Thrones or how many Game of Thrones fans know about DF, but this could probably be enjoyed by both. To be honest I'm not really a big fan of Game of Thrones (in fact I really really do not like it). I've never seen the show but I read the first and most of the second book before it became a big deal, but I quit because I just didn't respond to it. Several of my friends are really big fans though and we joke about my anitifandom constantly, so this is just poking fun and I encourage any Game of Thrones fans to read Dresden Files and find out what I'm talking about, because it's awesome.

(tried to leave out any spoilers)

Game of Thrones belongs to the auther
Dresden Files belongs to Jim Butcher
First meme is concept of whoever created it
DF art belongs to Chris McGrath and Jim Butcher

Absolutely brilliant!  I'm a fan of both; however, I have to agree with Harry.

On the subject am I the only one that thinks Codex Alera is really similar to Game of Thrones. Its like Butcher took the idea, and upped the awesome by 2000%

haven't really considered that, but I agree that if it is Butcher made it better. I just like his style of writing and when he writes things don't seem so forced, like I'm writing a sex scene for the sake of writing a sex scene, when Butcher writes it actually has a purpose. If you look up some of his interviews on YouTube though he explains where Codex Alera came from. It was actually a bet with another author to combine two poor and overly done ideas and try to make a good story. The other author got to pick the two ideas and he came up with Pokemon and Lost Roman Legion. Think about it. Once you see the Pokemon, you can't unsee it.

While it did originate as a blending of those two, and yes the Pokemon are rather obvious in hindsight (as are the Zerg). But the overall style, structure, elements, and plot points are very similar. A fractious realm seemingly united under a single throne, but with a monarch with a slipping grasp on power. An inevitable civil war brewing between various lords over control of the throne, with others having other agendas, or just staying out of it. A massive wall guarding the entire northern border to protect against attack by beings of ice the arrive with blizzards. Factions across the sea with their own eyes for power over the region. All with the backdrop of an awakened ancient enemy no one believes is real, who exist to consume destroy all in their path.
The details are different, but the overall structure is very similar.

I generally say that the book is better than the movie, for Game of thrones is the other way around, so i recommend it, and I love Dresden ;) See my fanart please :P [link]

It's hilarious! I've just finished reading of Summer Knight, so far the best book of the series.
And I'm still laughing. :D

Heh, awesome. Would you mind if I posted this in 9gag or some similar sites? You know, to raise awareness about the DF, God knows it deserves it.
