The thread that keeps on giving.
Context: Beth Briony’s answer to What does your accent sound like in English?
Annika Schauer, she who once loaned Jimmy Carter an alarm clock, responded:
You sound like Arya Stark! hahahahahahaha
Whereupon I value-added:
cc Beth Briony: preconception, going in: She must sound like Jessie J. It’s a dead cert. I will not go in thinking of Maisie Williams. Do not think of an elephant, do not think of an elephant…
… But yeah. Arya Stark it is.
(Checks Wikipedia: Maisie Williams.) Bristol? But Arya doesn’t sound like a pirate, and Beth’s from the Saff East, not the Saff West…
… I’ve got it! You guys go to the same dialect coach! Go on, fess up!
