This is the first in what I hope to be an album's worth of songs about the Women of Ice and Fire. I'm releasing this one publicly as a bit of a teaser. If I reach my goal of $200 in Patreon pledges, I will be releasing the remainder of the songs exclusively to my supporters.
This first song is about Arya, who has long been one of my favorite characters in Game of Thrones. I've been reading the book series since the 1990s, so I've known her for many years. Without giving too many spoilers.... Arya is a girl/young woman who develops a very interesting relationship with Death. As she loses people around her to death, she is faced with decisions about how to survive. Arya does not run and cower. Rather than fear death, she strives to understand it, to know her enemy. She loses and gains much along her path. Her fierceness is inspiring. And so...what do we say to the God of Death? Not Today.
