Seriously. It’s the manifestation of that Simpsons joke where Lisa nags J.K. Rowling into saying the end of the series is “he grows up and marries YOU.”

That script was trope-tastic fan fiction. And also terrible.

Even those of us who aren’t book readers knew Ned wasn’t going to last long. For fuck’s sake, you don’t hire Sean Bean to LIVE through a project.

Avatar was fine, you know? Like, hey, that was a good movie. But it wasn’t Star Wars or Trek or even Firefly in terms of generating much excitement for me.

I’m THRILLED to find out this is about my candidate from my district. I can’t thank the CLF enough for bringing this incredibly endearing trivia to my attention. I’ll be sharing this with all my friends to help them remain enthusiastic about voting in the special election. He’s One of Us.
