Winds of Winter, the latest novel in critically acclaimed author George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, must not keep the ol' boy too busy - he apparently has time to pit the love-to-hate Jaime Lannister against arcane demigods from beyond the brink of madness in a one-off battle scene.
But that's exactly what Martin's done, in repsonse to Suvudu's Cage Match Series, which pits fictional characters against each other, crossover deathmatch-style. io9 dug up one of Martin's LiveJournal entries from 2010 and apparently, he wasn't pleased with the ancient Cthulhu of Ry'leh besting his pretty-boy Kingslayer.
Excerpt from Martin's version of the battle after the break...
"He was not wrong. When Jaime strode onto the battleground beside the sea, he found more than twenty of them: priests and acolytes with bulging eyes, fish-belly white skin, receding chins, and the odd gill or two. The moment they saw him, they all started chanting, "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn,"and dancing about in a circle, their pale limbs flopping. Their eyes were all on the waves. None of them paid the least bit of attention to Jaime... until he shrugged off his cloak and let it puddle to the ground, revealing the golden armor beneath, covered over head to heel with Elder Signs.
Then they started shrieking. Smiling happily, Jaime donned his helm, and unsheathed his longsword."
There's plenty more mash-up mayhem at Suvudu and read the rest of Jaime's encounter with the Old Ones at George R.R. Martin's LiveJournal.
