We open the story on our protagonist abandoning their childhood as they enter a new world  - that's right, Will Parry! (But don't worry, Lyra's in this, too.)  After we get introduced to faces new and old, we'll hop onto our cloud-pines and catch up with Serafina Pekkala.

New year, same Jon POV, and Jon continuing with the same problems of trying to get a bunch of different people to get along at the Wall. Seems the brothers who said the same vows as him have different ideas of what it means.

ASOIAF Episode 76 - ADWD Jon X

Jon orchestrates a shotgun wedding... a crossbow wedding? Whatever. Either way, things end up kind of okay considering the track records for weddings in this series. Hopefully no one crashes it at the end.

Temperatures are subzero and bears walk the plains, following their new King and Master Iofur Raknisson.  But WAIT! Lyra Silvertongue has come, and all bears will bow - but not to her.  

Join the girls as they ponder Asriel's character, Serafina's scarring, and of course, the Parry family.
