A few days afterwards, I worked with Lyra at the archery range, loosing arrows at the targets known as “butts.” I still enjoyed her hands on my waist as she adjusted my stance. I had become much better at hitting the targets. I could not yet match the speed of the young archer I had captured soon after my arrival on this planet, but the act of taking an arrow from its quiver and fitting the indentation on its end, known as a “nock,” over the bowstring, an action known as “nocking,” had become very fluid.
“There are actually,” Lyra told me, “ignorant fools who call it ‘notching.’ Should you meet any, shoot them with arrows.”
“I shall do so.”
“No, don’t really shoot them. I was jesting.”
“This world’s breeding pool would be improved, would it not?”
“I must remember not to encourage you to kill people.”
John Carter and Dejah Thoris of the Burroughs novels are mis-directed to the world of Game of Thrones, fulfilling two separate prophecies. Carter is a Confederate officer; his ideas might be considered unenlightened. Dejah is very good at killing people, but she feels bad about it.

Aerys Targaryen was the worst president in the history of the USA. Everybody agrees. A tyrant who lied, caused wars and killed anyone who opposed him in 'accidents', which usually involved fire. Some of which he video-taped for his amusement. His was a reign of terror, backed by his family's massive underground criminal empire and their family conglomerate. That is why few condemned Robert Baratheon, his Vice-President, when he murdered the then president Targaryen, along with his wife and sons, and removed his family from power. Daenerys Targaryen, then aged 7, was the only child of the former president to be spared.
20 years later, due to his massive popularity and the help of his insanely wealthy father-in-law - Tywin Lannister, president Baratheon, still in power, has successfully removed the term limits and made it so that to have new presidential elections, the people would have to vote for that. Now though, he is faced with the first serious threat to his rule - Daenerys Targaryen, in charge of her family's vast resources and married to the disowned daughter of his secretary of defense, has come back for revenge. The ruthless young silver-haired beauty will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Fire and blood.
