This is MINE.
Signed by GRRM himself at MisCon 2012.
GRRM seemed genuinely surprised that there was, standing in front of him, an actual fan of Stannis. And I quote:
"Stannis, huh? You don’t meet many fans of Stannis."
To which I replied with giddy fangirling all over the place. I couldn’t contain myself, but I regret nothing.
"I know I know I know! There aren’t many of us, we’re in the tiniest of minorities. But we love our Stannis!"
As he was signing, his assistant looked at me and said, "Were you the person that shouted out his name last night?!" (Meaning at the screening of Blackwater with GRRM, during the opening shot after the credits, someone in the audience actually shouted out "STANNIS!!!!" They had quite literally stolen his name out of my mouth as I almost did the same thing.)
"No, but I almost WAS that person. I was so excited when they did that!"
"But - but - he’s a lobster!"
I just laughed and said, "Come on now! But he’s Stannis! And he’s my favourite."
The whole time this conversation went down, GRRM was just sitting there signing my book, giggling. Giggling! Probably at the absurdity of the conversation going on right in front of him. I don’t even know. I don’t even care. I got my book signed by GRRM proclaiming my love of the rightful king of Westeros.
AND STANNIS STANS WE ARE UNIQUE! OUR LOYALTY TO THE RIGHTFUL KING INTRIGUES EVEN GRRM HIMSELF! BE PROUD!
