Shiera + Bloodraven = Mel
It seems almost everything about Melisandre’s appearance can be attributed to either Shiera Seastar or Bloodraven – two characters known to have had a sexual relationship. We will see that skin, eyes, height, figure, face, breasts, beauty, elegance, even apparel have startling similarities, as well as aspects of personality and aptitude (& lots more). Here’s Shiera + Bloodraven = Mel, which yolkboy originally posted at Westeros.org last year.
Here’s the description GRRM gave us of Shiera…
"She was the greatest beauty(1) of her age, a slender(2) and elegant(3) woman, slim of waist(4) and full of breast(5);… She had a heart-shaped face(6); full lips, and her mismatched eyes were strangely large and full of mischief”
Compared with Cressen’s description of Mel from Clash…
"Slender(2) she was, graceful(3), taller than most knights, with full breasts(5) and narrow waist(4) and a heart-shaped face(6). Men’s eyes that once found her did not quickly look away, not even a maester’s eyes. Many called her beautiful(1).”
The similarities are undeniable here… and the heart-shaped face is interesting. A heart-shaped face is a rare trait, only attributed to two other characters outside of Mel and Shiera, and one of those is related to Shiera. (Mel’s possible glamour is considered further on).
Yeah, ‘holy smokes’ would be an appropriate way to attribute this beauty of a glorious crackpot. I just LOVE how GRRM gives us all the ingridients to brew the craziest of dishes and ALL of them would seem accurate. In the face of Mel Blackfyre everything’s fine.
Shingeki no Kyojin Au Smartpass Interview Title Cards—Hanji Zoe
The Title cards translate to:
- When I joined the Scouting Legion, I was full of hatred towards the titans.
- But you see, the sample is right in front of me, I can’t just go take a bath!
- Eh…he’s worried about me? How so?
- I get restless even when I take a break, and often find myself back in my lab.
- When I get mad, I kick and wreck tables and chairs… but doesn’t everyone do that?
- I want to study the unknown organisms and the culture of past civilizations!

Plankton of the world, beware! While most nudibranchs, or sea slugs, crawl and graze, the melibe sweeps its hood through the water like a net, capturing unsuspecting tiny drifters. A fringe of tentacles interlock and trap prey as the hood collapses to help the slug digest its meal.
Melibes may be expert plankton snatchers, but how do these soft-bodied invertebrates escape being a meal? Researchers have followed their noses to the melibe’s uniquely fruity smell—noxious secretions which may ward off nibbling fish. They can also “swim” away from predators by wiggling from side to side.
Living on giant kelp fronds or sea grass, melibes live higher up in the water column than most seafloor-bound nudibranchs. They’ve adapted well to the vertical life—as you can see in the background, their white ribbon eggs hang and sway with currents.

Also the girl titan is a dead ringer for Annie. Except, ya’know without skin, and a couple hundred feet taller.

Hey guys, my friend Dan is becoming a super talented underwater photographer. He refuses to get Tumblr, much to my dismay. Let’s try and convince him otherwise. Hands up if you’d like to see him post his stuff on Tumblr.

I”m pretty lucky to be able to find the full interview for part 2, so here it is. Personally I find this rather hard to translate, so if you find any mistakes, feel free to correct me.
Part 1 (not full) is here
I heard she is skilled in close combat. However, I never expected myself to go flying through the air…
Despite sounding disinterested in this interview, she demonstrates her sincerity as she thinks deeply about and responds to every questions that was asked.
