A lesson in unexpected character death
A blog based on a blog that will no longer update has a limited life expectancy.
Like many, we were dumbfounded today to learn that Horse_ebooks is not now
, nor has he ever been, a genuine spambot. Like marginally fewer, we have been running a Horse_ebooks-inspired project for the best part of a year and let it slide in recent weeks only due to the combined effects of post-season burnout and unexpected real life changes.
Over the years Horse has often provided us with uncannily timed responses to the deeper questions in l— well. To questions. Predicaments. We once expended five dollars on a book of romantic advice he promoted (though so far it has prevented neither of us from using ineffective methods to select men). When I got a new mobile telephone for the first time in ten years I immediately messaged my co-mod to tell her I would make certain she never bought knives again, PUMPKIN “PIE”. Horse_ebooks will forever be a part of our lives - at the very least, one of the major cartographers of our mental landscapes.
This is not, mayhaps, the end for Horse of Thrones, then. With the fourth series of GoT coming up in the spring, there will be new images that may bring to mind old tweets. For the interim, a hiatus will be inevitable, for the various reasons outlined above.
Thank you to all of our followers. Let’s hear it for the riddler that was a riddle (or is it the other way around?):
Valar morghulis. Everything happens so much
