Quick fun fact about House of the Dragon

So, what about Hightower?

Hello, dearies! 🐉

You know what’s funny about House of the Dragon storyline and promo is that they say, return to Westeros and meet the history of Targaryen and Hightower, like fans of the show will hardly know what you’re referring to with Hightower, they scratched the surface with that house.

I bet not even half of those who watched the show would even be able to say, ah yes I know that house.

And no, the one you’re probably thinking about is the Tyrells, who are from Highgarden.  

In the books, of course, we know a lot more about them like the fact that Margery Tyrell’s mother was (is?) from Hightower.

Fact

House Hightower of the Hightower is one of the most powerful of the noble houses in the Reach. Their seat is the Hightower, located in the city of Oldtown. The sigil of House Hightower is a stone white watchtower, with a fire on the top.

So, yes, just a fun fact for everyone out there, I saw a promo vid for House of the Dragon and thought, huh, do they even know?

hightower house books

I’m currently reading Fire and Blood, and it’s interesting, to say the least, I hope to finish it before the show is out, but as most of George R. R. Martin’s books are a thousand million pages long, then that remains to be seen if I’ll finish quickly or not.

I’ll keep you posted and look for the review on it.

Hello, dearies! Happy Easter Week! 🐇

I wanted to do an entry on Moon Lovers since I finished it a while back because I fell hard for the story and the characters, and even though the finale was not my favourite, it was still a darn good drama.

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo’s name came to me while I was watching an episode of Knowing Bros (Ask Us Anything/Brother School), and IU and Lee Joon Gi were there as guests. It’s a great episode you should watch it.

Hello, dearies! How is January ending?

I managed to post more than I expected this month, so I’m happy.

I recently finished Hotel Del Luna, and I had my suspicion that I would like it but I really enjoyed it, and it was so much fun to watch with my mom, she joined me mid-story but caught on quickly, and was into the story. Is something else when the elderly love K-Dramas as much as you do, you know they’re good. 😀

The Idhun Chronicles

Overall? I would watch it again and that means it was good the first time. Pretty close to the books.

Where? Netflix

Based on the books by Laura Gallego – Memorias de Idhún

Season 1 – so far

Alright, let’s do this while it’s fresh. As in, I just finished watching season 1, tonight, not long ago.

Starting now, and if you haven’t read or watched this, don’t worry there are no spoilers on this one.

The Dragon Prince: Season 2

The Dragon Prince

Watch it on: Netflix

So, I didn’t do a season 1 of this one but season 2 was even greater and that’s the reason we are here today. After finishing the whole thing in a night and a morning, I have to say that is good and you should be watching.

The story

Wow, you have dragons, that’s all you need to know. Dragons in your life is all you need to be happy or at least me, just me? Okay. You have magic, and elves, and dark magic, and mixed cultures, like two Queens in a kingdom or blind people doing incredible things, or being able to talk to animals, and a magical mirror. If none of those things is your cup of tea then I cannot help right now, that’s all I got.

We Need to Talk about GOT: Finale

So this is the year of endings, apparently. Shadowhunters TV, The Big Bang Theory, Endgame. I am sure others as well but those are at the top of my mind, and nothing like last Sunday’s GOT Finale, which could not be farther from what I was expecting yet it did not disappoint me in one thing: I was not expecting more than what it happened.

If you thought this would be a complete happy and tearful one, then you are in for a treat. I will not trash it, much. I think. As usual if you have not watched yet and have not read the books, or the last book published A Dance with Dragons, then stop here for the night is dark and full of spoilers.

Shadowhunters TV So Far: New Characters

Hello, readers! Thank you for coming back to the site for more Shadowhunters TV, you were here for something else? Well, you are reading this now so no matter. I have not written a word about the Shadow World on Freeform for some time and mainly it is because I had not had the time to watch all the episodes, when Season 2 ended it escaped my mind to come here, and once Season 3 started I did not watch all episodes straightaway (*stupid working adult life*) but anyways, as of right now I have watched up to Episode 7 of Season 3, and could not hold back on letting some steam up here.

Here we go, this one will be short (hopefully) so do not worry, and mainly it would be me talking (*cough* ranting) about a couple of characters, specially the new ones. You must know where this is heading if you watched Ep 6 and 7.

Mild spoiler for those who have not watched the show so far.

What’s New

New Characters

Brother Zachariah

The moment Magnus mentioned him I stopped listening to the rest of the episode, there was nothing else but Brother Zachariah, how would they bring to life such an amazing character and then he was there and I was screaming all over the place like a fangirl. Mind you I was not watching it alone and my partner in crime, who has not read the books was looking at me like: what is it? Is just a Silent Brother.

But all the fans of the books will know why I freaked.

Lilith

To the designers and make-up artists of the show: What is up with her makeup? And sometimes her choice in clothes? Not very good.

Lilith was not entirely what we were expecting, what I was at least. She came off a bit crazier than necessary. And the way she possessed Jace? Nobody really said how come she had possessed him because he did not have all the Shadowhunter protections they are given at birth, the ceremony performed to them, they just skimmed over it, but whatever, right? No! But moving on.

Kyle

I was saying Jordan even before they said who he was. Oops, was that spoiler? I’m sorry I thought everyone had watched so far.

Heidi (?)

Heidi who should be Maureen, then again in the show they do what they want without looking too much into the facts from the books, and Maureen appeared only a thousand million moons ago and they did not give her the proper importance she had, so this is fine as well, I suppose. Heidi is just as crazy as Maureen eventually was, so that must count for something for the writers of the show.

Izzy’s Beau

What is up with the doctor? The mundane? We all know Izzy is awesome and does not discriminate in any account but I really did not get this, is it to eventually get her to the love of her life? Who we perfectly now who he is? I did not understand this character who I am having trouble even remembering his name, sorry not sorry.

New Relationships

The One that surprised but also made me say: Ooh!

Should I say it? I am going to, you probably watched all the episodes already, but Luke and Maryse, I mean they clicked straightaway with one look across the bar. Yes, we all know that this is a total lie and Luke from the books has eyes for no one but Jocelyn, who is still alive! In the books that is. But this was fine, I said: Sure, what the hell? No problem. 

Izzy and her new one

Dinner with this guy, who I still cannot remember his name nor am I trying to remember. Really I did not understand this at all.

New Institute Guy

Ugh! I spent the whole time thinking: He won’t do it, right? Alec would not do that. And he did not, thank the Angel because I would had been truly upset if something would had happened.

Alright I am done for the moment, there is more to come, I am watching all episodes without stop now and want to catch up with the story so far. Stay tunned for more, Angels!

shadowhunters tv season 3

If you have watched the episodes so far, up until these ones that I mentioned, let me know and no spoiler on the comments, don’t be mean to the other readers. I hope you enjoyed and please feel free to look at the rest of the stories on the blog.

Happy reading!

 

Charmed: New Vs Old

I should probably wait a bit to write this one, but I am going to do it anyway.
I have only watched 2 and a half episodes of the new but I believe it is enough for the moment. And I have watched Charmed (Original) about 100 times since my teenage days, so, you get where this is going.
