…He won’t be a boy forever. And The Daily Raven is coming.”
–Lord Eddard “Ned” Stark
Of course, we here at Winter Is Coming know the answer to that burning question. But who else could possibly know? What is The Daily Raven?
Settle down, Gatewatch grumpkins! The answer will come soon. It’s Random Stupid Contest Time!
Give us your best guess! One guess per person! What is The Daily Raven? Whoever comes closest to the exact answer wins a 2012 A Song of Ice and Fire calendar—signed by artist John Picacio himself!
(Hurry and give us your best guess now—the month of January has already passed! You only have 11 more months to go with this freaking calendar! Plus the contest ends tomorrow, February 16th, at 10:00 EST.) (EDIT: That’s PM!)
It’s your choice whether or not you want to play it safe and guess vaguely, or take a chance and go with weird precision. “The Daily Raven is The Daily Raven” is a potential winner, assuming no one else comes closer than that, but “The Daily Raven is a vintage 1928 photo of nine naked pipers standing on the back of an albino pygmy elephant” would trump that if it were true. (It’s not.)
Being FaBulous, I will start you off with three hints:
1. The Daily Raven has nothing to do with John Picacio or his art. We’re just giving his exquisite signed calendar away as a prize!
2. The Daily Raven has nothing to do with the Baltimore Ravens football team, or its fan sites. Birds of a different feather!
3. The Daily Raven is not daily.
The answer will be revealed tomorrow. Good luck!
