Posted 7/11/14

For today’s Hodge Podge, pick one of the song titles below, and write the story behind that song. (These are all from George R R Martin's Game of Thrones books.) Remember to add a warning if your SUB needs one!

Iron Lances
The Burning of the Ships
The Bear and the Maiden Fair
The Night That Ended
Oh, Lay My Sweet Lass Down in the Grass
Let Me Drink Your Beauty
Six Maids in a Pool
The Maids that Bloom in Spring
Two Hearts that Beat as One
The Mother's Tears
When Willum's Wife Was Wet
Lord Harte Rode Out on a Rainy Day
A Cask of Ale
Fifty-Four Tuns
The Name Day Boy
The King Without Courage

Critiquers, along with the usual technical critique, you might also comment on how well the SUB tied to the choice.
