Game of Thrones Week 2 Thoughts!

The opening to week 2 of GOT was just as intense as the premier episode, showing Dany’s authority and the opening shows glimpses of the type of ruler Daenyrys intends to be. She is not blind, she is not stupid and she is very brave, as brave as her dragons. The closing to the opening scene tells it all… “Tell him his Queen invites him to Dragonstone… And Bend The Knee!”

Sam’s development. He’s becoming more brave, defiant and strong willed towards causes he belived in. In episode 1 this started with him building up the courage to go into the forbidden section of the Citdael. In this episode he goes against direct orders of the Arh Maester. I’m super happy to see that Sam is becoming his own man.

Arya is reunited with a boy from her past and from their interaction you can see just how feral she really is. Arya has lost most of her humanity until a great truth is revealed. The actress did an amazing job of showing the voidness in her face and then the child Arya in her eyes. Over the 7 seasons, arya was deprived of her childhood, upon this revealation, you can see that she is transported back to that feeling. “Take care of yourself, try not to get killed.” – Arya to Hot Pie

Sansa and Jon’s relationaship. Her rebellion is quickly enraged and just as swiftly diminished upon Jon’s revelation. There are 2 choices that can be taken from this point, Sansa will remain loyal and serve her brother or Sansa will try and show why she is a better candidate for a ruler. I’m very interested in how this sequence will play out. “Touch my sister… and I’ll kill you myself! “-Jon to Littlefinger.

Lastly, there was a great battle scene that did not skimp on the blod or action. Lines were drawn in the sand, boundaries were crossed and decisions were made that are not easy to come back from. The ending of the episode was just explosive as the beginning of the Season! Did any of your favorites get wounded or killed? You have to watch to find out!

Those are some of my thoughts from this week’s episode! Below are a few points to consider moving forward.

  • Book of Lanister History – Highlighted at the Citadel
  • Lymmerya… Finally! – How will Arya’s wolf come into play?
  • Developing relationships between Grey Wolf and Misandre – “You are my weakness.”
  • The Lords of Westeros are sheep.. Are you a sheep? No You’re a Dragon..be a dragon! – Lady Olena. How will Dany be a Dragon?
  • What’s going on with the characters we did not see this week? The Hound, etc.

Have a great Monday!

WWE Battlegrounds Preview & Predictions

Happy Saturday Novas! Today’s post will be my traditional preview and predictions post for the WWE PayPerView event happening SUnday! This weekend, Smackdown Live’s Finest will have their time in the sun to fight at the Battlegrounds event.

20170718_BG_DillingerEnglish--5d0f122503710958936a2327bbab756d

Tye Dillinger vs Aiden English (Kickoff)- The Kickoff match on the pre-show is set to be The Perfect 10 vs now lone member of the Vaudevillains. I mentioned in my post a few days ago that I would love to see Tye Dillinger getting more opportunities than what he is currently receiving. Prediction: Tye Dillinger should win this match.

20170718_BG_CenaRusev--b81faf27bf71a53559471c553548092a

John Cena vs Rusev Flag Match- The Face That Runs The Plac, John Cena will take on the Bulgarian Brute Rusev in a flag match. Both Superstar’s Flags will be suspended in the turn buckles on the opposite side of the rin. The Superstars will fight and the first person to retirve their Country’s flag will be the winner. Prediction: John Cena!

20170718_BG_NakamuraCorbin--e9f9c7249b6efaf7f8e8e97715f30d1d

Shinsuke Nakamura vs Baron Corbin – The 2 Superstars have been feuding since Nakamura ended his feud with the show off Dolph Ziggler. Even though the opponents are the different this time around, the feud is the same. Corbin believes that Nakamura is getting all of the shine and spotlight for no reason. He feels that he is the Andre The Giant Memorial Winner and Mr. Money In The Bank so he should have the spotlight. Nakamura and Corbin have been brawling before the match, backstage and during each other’s entrances. Predictions: Nakamura for the win!

20170718_BG_TagMatch--1f07e202f13843ccee55bdc8b0f51e19

Smackdown Tag Champions The Usos Vs The New Day – The tag team champions the Usos will be taking on crowd favorites the New Day for the title. The Usos and New Day have been feuding since the New Day returned back to WWE. The battles ahead went from physical to a rap battle. Predictions: I want the Usos to retain. The New Day have been Tag Champions for the longest time.

20170718_BG_WomansEliminationMatch--0eeca5d5e610a780dae777c21e2bff77

Charlotte Flair vs Becky Lynch vs Natalya vs Tamina vs Lana 5 Way Elimination match (number 1 contender at Summer Slam) – This 5 way elimination match should be entertaining. The match results will detemineChampion Naomi’s opponent at the cross brand Summerslam.  I ecpect the match to be pretty good and I expect people who had alliances to turn on each other for the chance at the title. Predictions: I’m feeling Tamina. I think she will become victorious and get a title opportunity.

Sami Zayn vs Mike Kanellis – This feud between the Underdog and the star-crossed lover has been building for a while now. I’m not quite sure or interested int he details of the match so let’s skip to my predictions. Prediction: Mike Kanellis will win. You can’t beat the power of love Sami, lol.

20170718_BG_KOAJ--1ac729fd0da141ee851d38aea0e82c90

United States Champion Aj Styles Vs Kevin Owens – Another title defense will see the champion and phenomenal AJ Styles versus Kevin Owens for the United Stated Title. Styles won the title during a house match in Madison Square Garden. When he returned to Smackdown the follwoing Tuesday, he initiated an open challenege (sound familiar). Cena came out to challenge and Owens stepped in to claim his rematch. Prediction: AJ Styles retain his title.

20170718_BG_MahalOrton--6a1668911d16e02d4e052dc69040783d

WWE Champion Jinder Mahal vs Randy Orton Punjabi Prison Match- The Punjabi Prison match is going to be a great one. Champion Jinder Mahal will be trapped in 2 prisons with the Viper Randy Orton. This match will solidify the modern day Maharajah’s reign by allowing him to win a match without the help of the Singh Brothers.  I’m very interested in this match! Prediction: Jinder Mahal should retain and this feud can finally be over.

These are my predictions for this weekend’s event! Who do you think wil reign victorious? Which matches are you looking forward to? How do you think the outcome of Battleground will affect Summerslam? Let’s talk WWE!

WWE Slamcrate Unboxing :July

Happy Friday Novas! I’ve finally received my WWE Slamcrate for the month and it’s time for another unboxing post! This month’s theme was “Stables.” Honestly, I had no idea what that meant until I read the booklet that came with the crate. Pretty much, the Stables theme focuses on some of the more iconic groups to hit the WWE! The loot this month was definitely tier 1 for me, so let’s see what we got!

20170720_115910

Each crate contains a shirt! I’ve already mentioned in previous unboxings my love for the WWE Shirts as opposed to the normal lootcrate shirts. These shirts are better quality. This month we received an exclusive Sasha Banks Shirt!

Each crate contains a collectible of some kind. This month I have received the 2nd installment of the ring characters, Triple H (last time we received Stone Cold Steve Austin). The new pack also included the connector piece so that we can put together the ring.

You also receive a collectible pin. For the Slamcrates, the pins have been different titles. This month we have received the NWO Title. Also, we have received the Bray Wyatt Socks that I wil never wear because they are sooooo beautiful. To the wall you go Bray! You can’t talk about groups without mentioning the ever popular New Day! They were represented well with the foam finger, unicorn horn!

20170720_120108

The poster that was included this month is already up on the wall; The Shield… Need I Say More?????

I have the colectible booklet and the pamphlet letting you know what each item is in the crate. This is one of my favorite boxes so far (my favorite being the Wrestlemania box). If you want to sign up for any loot crate subscription you can use my code to receive $5 off of new crates.

Five Sentence Story Prompt & Welcome!

Right, on to this week’s prompt word:

Admire

Another ball and I’m expected to tempt and please, yet no one will know each other’s identities. Dresses of Silk flowing across the floor, exotic furs, lace, leathers; his whore. Placed on a pedestal for all to find, ravaged and succulent, tasting the wine. Our eyes finally meet, can she see through my mask? Looking away was an impossible task.

Daily Post: Lollipop

Happy Thursday Novas! I wanted to write about today’s daily prompt word so you will be receiving the daily prompt today and the 5 sentence story tomorrow! Today’s post will be a short poem.

Daily Post Topic: Lollipop

Till my lungs collapse, I’m living this horrid dream,

What once possessed such promise, was nothing more than a gleam,

The prospects and allowances that were once to be,

Transformed and beguiled, a young, pretentious me.

I opened up to life, as a church will open it’s doors,

They admired and beheld, my graciousness once stored,

Giving to the world and never asking for keeps,

Meeting my best friend Arielle, who seemed just as sweet.

We conquered school together, leaving  hearts at every turn,

Arielle located my weakness, making sure I was to burn,

Arielle came into my life, like a whirlwind of friend,

The sweetest smile you’d ever seen; the deadliest of weapons,

She sucked all of the life, out of a grateful soul,

Her body wrapped in poison; “I’m your friend” she told,

Silently my spirit drained, a most decrepit health,

Making me her lollipop, my friends, my heart, my wealth,

Blindly I allowed her to take what she would pursue,

Take care with whom you allow in your life; an unrecognizable you.

WWE 30 Day Challenge Days 16-20

Happy Thursday Novas! We are continuing with the 30 day blogging challenge and today we will be answering questions 16-20. This weekend will be an overload of WWE content as I have received my WWE Slamcrate this morning (the unboxing post will be up tomorrow) and my traditional predictions and preview post for the WWE PayPerView event on Sunday will go up on Saturday! Let’s jump into the questions!

Day 16- Most Underrated WWE Wrestler

tyeI would say the most underrated wrestler at the moment will be Tye Dillinger. Don’t get me wrong, many will know the Superstar from NXT as he was a crowd favorite, but as of right now WWE does not seem to be doing much with the Perfect 10.  I would love to see him have a developing story line and be featured more.

Day 17- Most Overrated WWE Wrestler

The answer to this question is pretty funny. A few months ago, I would have said that AJ Styles was overrated because I didn’t like him that much. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a great brock Superstar but I didn’t like his character. Now, I’m going to say both Samoa Joe and Brock Lesner! Joe is really annoying coming in as “The Destroyer” and Brock, let’s face it… we don’t see him enough for him to be this hyped up.

Day 18- Favorite WWE Entrance

Currently, I love Seth Rollin’s entrance, Brock Lesner, Kevin Owens and The Hardy Boyz! Oh yeah, can’t forget Naomi, her entrance is really good. Of all time The Shield’s entrance is definitely up there along with Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock! Their entrances were iconic and unforgettable.

Day 19- Favorite WWE Merch

Merchandise for WWE is a great way to support your favorite Superstars! Currently, I’m looking to get Roman Reigns new shirt with the Superman punch on the front. My favorite pieces of merchandise currently owned are the WWE United States Championship Belt, Seth Rollins Shirt and Finn Balor Shirt. Oh yeah, my Alexa Bliss wrist cuffs as well. I’m looking to get the Wrist cuffs for Reigns and I wouldn’t mine getting Heath Slater’s “I Got Kids, I Need This Job” shirt because it’s hilarious. CsSfuQuUAAEgS7w

Day 20- Favorite Current Smackdown Female Wrestler

Hands down Naomi! Since she has revamped her character I have been feeling the glow!

Thank you for tuning in to this week’s installments of the 30 day challenge! Next week I will have days 21-25 posted! What are your answers to the questions? Are you watching Battlegrounds this weekend? Let’s Talk WWE!

Enjoy your Thursday!

Video Game Crossovers!

Happy Wednesday Novas! I was reading a facebook post (I think) and the subject was video game merges. This is such an interesting topic to talk about that I wanted to have the conversation with you all! With the new details released about Kingdom Hearts 3, you know the Toy Story inclusion, I wanted to pose the question and see which video games you would like to see collaborate together! Licensing aside (because you know that’s why some of our dream mash-ups have not happened) what 2 or even 3 games would you love to merge?

Known Crossovers:

The known crossovers of games like Mario Kart, Super Smash Brothers or even Killer Instinct merges characters from different games together and makes them a playable part of the game. Mario and Sonic was a pretty big crossover for me because it combined 2 of my childhood favorites, into 1 world where Sega meets Nintendo! Crossover games can give the gamer a boost of knowledge from games that they might not have experienced before. In the original Super Smash Brothers game, I was unaware that Zelda was a Princess and integral part of the series (don’t laugh, I’ve never played Zelda lol).

Fighting games are known for adding characters to their already vast selection. Remember when Marvel vs Capcom first debuted? Finally we could start merging the iconic Heroes and Villains from 2 different realms together (the same goes for Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe). Killer instinct went a step further and started adding on guest characters for other video game types all together (note General Raam from Gears of War and that frog guy from Battletoads). So why not take things a step further and express the games that you would like to see a crossover from?

My Crossover Games: 

So Fable is a RPG game where you make decisions and usher your character through the story. How awesome would it be if when you went to battle the bosses, that a Pokemon Battle ensued? Maybe the Pokemon you can select are based on your abilities and traits (because you can customize your skills in new versions of Fable). If you decide to build a mage with a focus on ice, you could choose Pokemon like Squirtle, Ninetales, Dewgong, Articuno etc. That would be awesome! Maybe the Pokemon can follow you around as well.  imageedit_3_9446357760

Another game I would love to see is a simple combined fighting game. Let’s put Killer Instinct, Street Fighter, Dead or Alive, Tekken, Dragoball Z, Naruto, Mortal Kombat, etc all together in a brawl! I want large 5 person teams of fighters going at it! Think about it, the story can cross realms. Maybe have the gamer create a character and then you would need to cross through realms and fight the best of the best or even try to win a tournament.

What are some Video Game Crossovers you would like to see happen? Let’s talk Video Games!

Game of Thrones Season 7 Premier and Thoughts!

Happy Monday Novas! So… you just knew that I had to write a Game of Thrones post (along with the rest of the world I imagine lol). I will try to make my ost a lttle different by not blogging a recap of the episode, but instead I want to talk about some of my favorite scenes, what I think they represent and place some predictions for the next episode! Join in on the conversation in the comments!

Of course we have to start off with that opening. Before the premier, we thought that Winter Is Coming and Has Came with the emergence of the White Walker Army. I would like to formally say that Winter Has Come with the epic way that Arya Stark congratulated the Freys on their Red Wedding victory! The penalty for treason is death and while the Lannister’s Always Pay Their Debts, the North Always Remembers.

north
The North Remembers

Lyanna Mormont is quickly turning in to my favorite character in the show. She is tough, She is Brave and she takes no sass from ANYONE!!!! She truly is an inheritant of her House Sigil on Bear Island. I’d hate to see her on the battlefield! I think this scene was significant because it shows the strength of the people in the North. They are true to their word and they will go down swinging!

Dany’s homecoming choked me up a bit. I’m glad the producers didn’t ruin t with dialogue and just let the moment resonate with the audience. Dany set foot in her childhood home, tore down the Baratheon’s Banner and gazed upon the true home of the Iron Throne.

Sandor Clegane and his band of fanatics. This scene interested me the most because you can tell that it is a buildup for the Hound. He’s growing a conscious, he’s growing to believe and in turn, I believe he is growing stronger. When he asked why the Lord of Light picked  Berric Dondarrion to keep resurrecting, I thought of a bold response. Clegane seems to only be in the group because of Berric, right? What if Berric’s purpose is to bring the Hound to their side? I don’t know why specifically that this would matter, but Clegane seen the Light… literally! He knows of the undead Army and he knows of the battle ahead. Clegane is the key for something… hopefully we are gifted more clues next week,

Euron Greyjoy vow to return to Cersei with a gift, a magnificent gift. Could it be that he plans to bring Cersei Tyrion? You know that he plans to set sail and my bets are that he’s going to bring her something that she will not stop fighting for; revenge. If not Tyrion, could he bring her Sansa? I have to believe that it is a person that he will return with.Cersei is not dealing with her feelings which makes her even more dangerous. Because of this vulnerability you know that she is going to slowly push Jaime away. What will this mean for Kings Landing?

cersei
We’re waiting Euron

I feel that Jame of course, is Cersei’s only restraint. She can’t have that hindrance around, so I wonder if she will turn against her brother first?

Other notable moments were Jorah Mormont reaching out at Sam with his illness and Brandon Stark reaching the Wall. Of course we are all still waiting to see exactly what Sansa plans. Her undermining Jon in front of all of the Lords of the North was a power move and then it seemed as she was trying to become his right hand confidant… Hand of the King. It’s all very fishy, but I don’t belive that she is trying to outright overthrow Jon… yet. And I was very annoyed when she was telling Jon to not be Stupid like Father nad Robb… It’s like you were lucky people were saving you in every season but the 6th season… just saying.  There was a lot going in to the first episode as you would expect.

Favorites in this episode – Arya, Jon, Lyanna, Dany, The Hound, Jaime

Arya
I can’t wait until next week!

The opening was Epic and the remainder of the episode was setting up for episode 2. I believe that next week will have even more suspense and action than tonight. What are your thoughts? What were some of your favorite scenes? What do you think will happen next week? Let’s talk Game of Thrones!

Daily Prompt: Savor, Young Love

Happy Sunday Novas! I hope that you are having a fantastic weekend filled with blogs, games, friends, family, comics, books and everything else under the sun! We’re doing another daily challenge and I definitely encourage everyone to join in! Enjoy!

Delilah was a spectacle to behold each day that she decided to come to class. Today was no exception. She had on the ripped, dark blue jean shorts that had gotten her kicked out of the room several times before. Her short cut, black tank top rested just above her belly, exposing the jeweled martini glass ring that settled neatly in her button. “Sorry I’m late” she said. Uh-oh, Ms. Penelope is not impressed, she’s glaring at Delilah through her black, boxed rimmed glasses. Does she even have a prescription? I thought. Ms. Penelope gestures toward the seats and Delilah skips on by.

“Hi, Tyler!”

“You know you’re late right?”

Delilah tilts her head to the side and cracks a smirk. “So…” she laughs and punches me in the arm. Even her flirty punches are something that even her flirty punches are something that seem majestic and out of a novel. “She’s already got it out for you.” I gesture to Ms. Penelope who is still peering out of her glasses at my best friend. “She’ll be alright, so what’s for lunch?”

Before I could answer the bell was echoing through the halls and we were out for our hour lunch. Delilah grabs my ice cold hand and interlocks it with hers, as we walk to the cafeteria. She will never know how much I admire her, how much I want her and how much I will actually do for her.

“Hey, Ty… I’m going to get us some drinks. Be right back.”

“Sure thing!”

I can’t take my eyes off of her. Delilah doesn’t walk; she glides across the tile floor with ease. I bite my lip at the thought of having her in my arms. Today’s the day that I will taste what it’s like to be entranced by a siren. I stand up with authority as she returns to the table with our drinks, take her by her curvy waist and pull her into my body. Our eyes meet with intensity, her big hazel eyes cannot shy away from me any longer.

“Ty…”

“Shhh don’t say another word.”

Kissing-Couple-Silhouette

My hands slide up to the back of her neck and I pull her into my kiss. I promised myself that when I finally gave in to my desires that I would make the most of it, that I would savor every taste, every sound and every moment that she was in my arms.

Delilah drops the tray of food on the table where we are sitting.

“What are you thinking about?”

“Oh, nothing.”

I grab a carrot stick from the plate and take a bite with the biggest smile. I can still taste Delilah’s sweet, berry lips, even if it was just a dream.
