ValkyristG’day! My name is Duncan in real life, but Valkyrist tends to be my online username (pronounced VAL-ker-ist). It’s basically just “valkyrie” and “alchemist” smushed together.

I’m a postgrad student, ASOIAF fanatic, cinephile, and avid podcast host and editor with the Vassals of Kingsgrave, a community discussion show which covers everything from George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, to the latest movies and TV shows. I’m also producing a series of video essays on cinema and philosophy for YouTube. So this blog will act as a catalogue for all of that content, and hopefully lots more creative projects in the future. 😉

If you’d like to contact me with questions, feedback or project ideas, you can email me at: valkyrist101[at]gmail[dot]com
