As we celebrate our fathers, a new Everplans study reports that end-of-life planning is at the top of their responsibilities list. Other top findings include:

Dear Mr. Martin,

Now that another exhilarating season of Game of Thrones is wrapping up, we are all turning our attention to the calendar. Not for next season yet, but September 20th, your 66th birthday. If you had the life expectancy of your characters, you’d be long gone by now. That worries us.

We all love your lengthy and well-written spoilers for the hit HBO show. However, we fear that either HBO or the Many-Faced God will catch up to you before you can finish killing off the remaining characters. Please don’t leave us behind, George. Valar morghulis (translation: "All men must die"), so please get a plan in place. We can't rely on Beric Dondarrion to resurrect you because you already killed him off.

Let us help you out. We are offering you a lifetime subscription to the our Everplans platform for free. We have secure file upload that's fully encrypted, so you can upload your Wordstar manuscripts. You can then deputize as many people as you like who will be authorized to view your documents should you die before finishing the next books. Might we suggest David Benioff? Don’t worry, you can control what they can and cannot see in your plan. We’ll help you every step of the way with dedicated live chat support, email support, and support by raven (availability limited to Westeros and the Seven Kingdoms).

You see, George, we really need to know what becomes of Tyrion. We crave resolution for Arya... or Jeyne. And we must know, does R+L equal J? Do Daenerys and her dragon Drogon defeat the Dothraki? Please, plan ahead and make sure that we are not left running around like a Stark with its head cut off.

You may contact us at AllMenMustPlan@everplans.com to claim your free lifetime of Everplans.

Regards,

The Everplans Team

The Royal Seal of House Everplans

This missive was sent by raven and is intended only for the recipient noted above. If you happen to find it tied to a dead raven, please tie it to a live raven and send it along on its journey. All other unauthorized viewing of this missive is punishable by beheading, exile, or an evening with Ramsay Bolton. If the official seal of House Everplans on this message is broken then the offer still stands, we'll just be a bit bummed out.

Our Co-founder Abby Schneiderman went on Bloomberg TV's "Market Makers" to discuss how people can take control of their assets online and prepare for death in the digital age. Click the photo above to watch the video on Bloomberg.com.

An article about Everplans is currently featured in the May, 2014 issue of the AARP Bulletin. Titled "Online Help to Plan Your Exit Strategy," the monthly magazine does a great job informing their millions of members about our new way of getting a plan in place. Here's the full, glorious page:

Hey Everfans, be sure to stop by the Everplans booth at the New York Tech Day expo in New York tomorrow.

You've probably heard by now about a major Internet security flaw that has the potential to affect virtually every site on the Internet.

Everplans has qualified as "news that's fit to print." 

We came across this clever alteration of a Game of Thrones' billboard in a New York City subway station. Rather than walking by the original billboard and going "GAAAH!" commuters will be going "AWWWW!"

While promoting her new vampire flick Only Lovers Left Alive actress Tilda Swinton told The New York Posts' PageSix.com that she's not afraid of death:

“I think in a funny way we all do live forever. There aren’t that many people who aren’t spoken about after they die . . . I think immortality is probably overrated. I am all for the adventure. It’s coming and I’m not frightened.”

Swinton is known for playing fearless characters and it has apparently carried over into her real life. She won an Academy Award for her performance in Michael Clayton and is probably best known as The White Witch in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

Perhaps playing a vampire made her realize that immortality would get boring. While many might not share Swinton's views on death, we certainly understand vampire fatigue. Between True Blood, Twilight, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, more Twilight, Dark Shadows, even more Twilight we're all vampire-d out.
