As many of you know, Kvothe is one of the final four remaining fighters in Suvudu's fantasy cage match. After beating Aslan and Dumbledore, he's come head-to-head with Jaime Lannister from Martin's Song of Ice and Fire books.
Right now I'm losing. And while that stings a little, it doesn't sting nearly as much as what Sarah said to me last night.
"Are you still losing to Jaime Lannister?" she asked.
"Yeah," I said. "By a couple percentage points."
"Well, Jaime's a pretty awesome character," she said. "I don't think that Kvothe will be able to beat him."
Now she's entitled to her own opinion, of course. But still, what the hell? Whatever happened to "Stand by Your Man?" Even leaving aside the fact that I'm the pater familias, you'd think that she might at least show a little brand loyalty. After all, Kvothe as the one who puts food on our table and gives us the money to buy Oot jingly toys.
Seriously. Ow. My authorial pride is all hurty now.
Anyway, since I had a lot of fun writing up the Kvothe Vs. Aslan scenario, and a bunch of people asked for something similar for Kvothe vs Jaime, I decided to type one up. I just sent it in to Suvudu site, so it should be up there for you to see pretty soon.
Here's a link to the fight, if you want it.
And remember, this round of the fight only lasts until Friday (tomorrow) noon. So if you want to vote in the last two matches, you need to do it soon.
