So you know when a bad thing happens to a dear friend, and you have to be very solemn inside even though the way it came down actually makes your own life WAY WAY better?
So, a little after the fact, I need to offer my condolences to everyone over at George RR Martin’s office for the unfortunate loss of his minion, Pat.
And TOTALLY UNRELATED, I’d like to introduce James SA Corey’s new minion, Pat!
Y’all will be seeing more of her around in the weeks and years to come. Please join me in a welcoming round of applause. And no, she won’t tell you who ends up on the Iron Throne. EVEN THOUGH SHE PROBABLY KNOWS.
