A beautiful medley of the Game of Thrones theme and The Children
By Lightbringer on in General.

It may be the off season, but that isn’t stopping the Game of Thrones theme covers from flowing. This latest one comes from YouTuber Malukah, who has created a medley of the title theme, and the song that closed out season four, The Children.

Malukah uses her own voice as a one woman choir, accompanied by performances on the guitar, piano, and drums to create a truly beautiful tribute.

    Malukah! Every piece of music she makes is beautiful… I love this version of the song almost more than the original.

    Love Malukah! Sad to see the WiC major crew go. I think I will be joining them. Maybe the deal with Fansided turned out to be a mistake. GeekFurious was right on the money with this one. Nostradamus reborn

    jentario,

    But it’s too hard! Atreyu was right when he fled the site many months ago. Guy was a fucking genius. Probably drowning in pussy too. I wonder where he keeps it all and how he finds the time.

    Summer,

    Ours Is The Fury, Fire and Blood, Hear Me Roar and Oz informed the new ownership that they would be leaving the site after SDCC and they were fired immediately. Those four are making a new website for GOT-related stuff and it should be up next week.

    As of today, FireAndBlood (aka Axechucker), HearMeRoar, Oz of Thrones, and I (OursIsTheFury) will no longer be a part of WinterIsComing.net.

    Wait…what?

    That’s…wow. Thanks for all of the links everyone. Will have to keep an eye out for the new site. (I also expect/hope that the ladies and lads at HBO will continue to support FaB, Fury, etc. They have done so much for the GOT community–and show–after all.)

    WiC has been such fun, so it’s sad to see it turn out like this.

    (And yes, the music is beautiful.)

    Malukah’s music would be better received, IMO, if one didn’t have to watch her awkwardly singing with a shit-eating grin on her face while she played it. Let the music speak for itself, and remove the awkward ego part of it!

    Woah. That is a mass migration, if I ever saw one (and sure to spur a fan migration). Not sure what’s going to happen to this place without those four…

    I will still come here for Game of Owns (and the inimitable Kate Welch), but I will certainly be spending some time on their new site, and less time here.

    It must have been a difficult decision, but I am sure it was the right one.
    Lets face it, the quality of this site has dropped A LOT since Fansided took over.
    I will follow them in their new website, those four writers were the only ones whose articles I read anyways.

    Well, bye then. I’ll surely migrate to their new site. It was great, but since the FanSided acquisition the quality went down.

    Im afraid to say I will be jumping over to the new site once it goes up too. Those guys were what made this place for me and they seem to be the first to know anything regarding casting or filming updates which is the main reason I visit the site. Its been a fun ride WIC.

    So, does Fansided expect they will be able to get any of the good content (such as exclusive interviews or number crunching or tweets) without the Fantastic Four?

    Shame it’s ended up like this. Also the four did the right thing giving advance notice of their decision to leave and Fansided have not treated them well. Doubt I’ll come here again.

    OMG! It’s like the red wedding…except they aren’t dead and I can follow them to the new location. The original content they provided was the only reason I still came to WIC. Never cared for the filler posts fansided provided.

    Best of luck with the future of this website, but I’ll be leaving.

    Adios.

    Dear Fansided –
    You could have at least made an announcement that these 4 long-time favorite writers were leaving and thanked them for their years of service. I think everyone understands that mergers don’t always work out, but few understand it when 4 valued writers just disappear without so much as a ‘good-bye and good luck’ from the new bosses. The way this has played out just seems so crass and unprofessional.

    Anyway – love Malukah but her rendition of “Dragonborn” is much better.

    Well – this was beyond predictable. Whenever a mom-and-pop place is acquired by a conglomerate, the prices go up, the quality goes down, and the family that built it up is forced out – one way or another.

    Anyone staying on this modern-day titanic is likely going to get very lonely. I for one am making my last post, and have read my last article here.

    Good luck to you all – I’ll see you over at the new site when it’s up and going, if you’re smart, anyway…

    I must say I thought all was good after a fairly smooth transition but more and more crap kept getting added and WiC has gone downhill fast. I may lurk on here occasionally but no more daily visits. :(

    I will see all my brothers and sisters at the new site. I’m not on twitter so I hope they will post the new site on that tumblrofthrones page (is that one of theirs?).

    I think the Tumblr site may be maintained by Ours is the Fury. I have to come clean and admit I was one of the people who did not realise that Ours is the Fury was female (sorry OITF if you lurk here still). I said my previous post was going to be my last post here, but obviously it wasn’t. I’ll probably watch the Tumblr (sp???) site to find out about the commencement of the new site.

    Posted July 23, 2014 at 4:44 am | Permalink

    I don’t think the quality had dropped severely since Fansided and actually they must be commended for broadly keeping the look and feel of the site. And we mustn’t forget that the powers that be at wic.net decided to sell it in the first place, so it’s not all ‘big bad corporate’ vs the little guy.

    However, as I said before, my loyalty will go wherever the best quality content and best quality of posters is (eg limited flamers / trolls). Limited pop ups / ads will also be a factor. So really there only seems one winner, but I’ll try and keep an open mind.
