You know LF's lash, for the past several days I've been reading the folllowing hateful and rarely supported comments on your part that myself and others (wisely, imo) have generally chosen to ignore. However, I couldn't help but wonder what, from Sansa, would inspire such vitriol on your part. A sample
So, yeah, I was wondering what in the world inspired such vitriol on your part. And now, rereading the Sansa chapters featuring LF in AFFC, I think I know.
It can't be easy seeing one's hero act unbelivably stupid, and basically show himself coming undone over his raging hardon for a barely 13 year old kid who does not return his feelings. No wonder you feel the need to insult, degrade, and mock Sansa at every turn. She is your hero's cryptonite, is proving to be able to see past his act more and more, and may well prove his undoing at this point. Seeing one's hero make an ass of himself over his crush on a 13 year old schoolgirl cannot be fun, or inspiring for one who sees LF as some sort of inhumanly brilliant individual.....
Its you guys. honestly. I hadn't paid Sansa much of a second thought (and assumed everyone loved Petyr) when I joined the board. But I didn't actively dislike her. I just didn't like reading her chapters. But its this constant hand wringing over this character who's only redeeming qualities are being "Pretty and Nice". Its driving me nuts.
If she were an actual 13 year old girl, I probably wouldn't feel the same way. But there's a reason I haven't interact with any 13 year old girls...since I was 13.
I was actually thinking about this last night. Sean Collins recently had a blog post where he wondered why there was no Bran hate. To which I responded, first of all there is Bran hate. I hated his chapters just as much as I hated Sansa's. And second, SHE DOESN'T FUCKING DO ANYTHING. The only reason I stopped hating Bran was because he started doing things. They both suffer in my opinion of then for having Arya for their younger
And then on top of that. Comments like
"Alyn carried the Stark banner. When she saw him rein in beside Lord Beric to exchange words, it made Sansa feel ever so proud. Alyn was handsomer than Jory had been; he was going to be a knight one day."
Sansa sighed as she stitched. “Poor Jon,” she said. “He gets jealous because he’s a bastard.”
And then she has the nerve to treat characters I love, Arya, Jon, Tyrion, Sandor... like shit? Seriosly, I might not put her head on a spike, but if I were on the wall walk with her like Joffrey was. I might push her off.
But then I thought, maybe I'm being sexist. What if Sansa had a penis? Which character would she be....
"The armorer considered that a moment. “Robert was the true steel. Stannis is pure iron, black and hard and strong, yes, but brittle, the way iron gets. He’ll break before he bends. And Renly, that one, he’s copper, bright and shiny, pretty to look at but not worth all that much at the end of the day.”
“Renly’s made his own Kingsguard,” the onetime smuggler explained, “but these seven don’t wear white. Each one has his own color. Loras Tyrell’s their Lord Commander.”
It was just the sort of notion that would appeal to Renly Baratheon; a splendid new order of knighthood, with gorgeous new raiment to proclaim it. Even as a boy, Renly had loved bright colors and rich fabrics, and he had loved his games as well. “Look at me!” he would shout as he ran laughing through the halls of Storm’s End. “Look at me, I’m a dragon,” or “Look at me, I’m a wizard,” or “Look at me, look at me, I’m the rain god.”
The bold little boy with wild black hair and laughing eyes was a man grown now, one-and-twenty, and still he played his games. Look at me, I’m a king, Cressen thought sadly. Oh, Renly, Renly, dear sweet child, do you know what you are doing? And would you care if you did?"
And then to have people suggesting that she deserves, better than Tyrion. That Petyr is irredeemable because of her. It is a bridge too far. But I do want her away from Petyr and I don't think he can just let her go. So...logically.. she needs to die. The head on a spike is just a flourish. But her father and brother were decapitated. And I do have this http://www.chevronon...012/03/king.jpg
