Revelations That Would Ruin Characters For You
Posted 05 August 2012 - 06:47 PM
For example, If it turned out that Euron was lying about all of his travels to Valyria and elsewhere, I would instantly disown most of my unreasoning love for him. I think that those travels are precisely what make him so cool, the idea that he is a fearless explorer and not just a gigantic jackass.
So, does anyone else have any characters like that? Characters that you would like much less if something turned out to be true/not true about them?

Jorah Mormont having a slightly longer left leg than right

I would also be bitterly disappointed if Sansa loses her moral compass and accepts Littlefinger and his horrid influence. I want her to get away from him.

I don't know about the born-evil thing, but as for killing Melara ... yes, yes she did.

Could that be more damning?

Text or it didn't happen.

I think so, but ... *shrugs*
What Jamie (sic) Lannister said. Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, it's a duck.

If Cersei ever repented.
If Dany never made it to Westeros.
If Tyrion never made it back to and got what he deserved.
If Sansa stayed with LF and participated in all his diabolical plans.
If Rickon turned out to be really practical and understanding.
If Bran stayed in the cave.

Did Manderly baking Frey pies happen?

The poor boy was always alone. I had Jaime when I was a child... and Melara, until she fell into the well.
“Please,” begged Melara. “Just tell us our futures, then we’ll go.”
“Some are here who have no futures,” Maggy muttered in her terrible deep voice.
“Not Jaime, nor any other man,” said Maggy. “Worms will have your maidenhead. Your death is here tonight, little one. Can you smell her breath? She is very close.”
“The maegi.” The words came tumbling out of her. She could still hear Melara Hetherspoon insisting that if they never spoke about the prophecies, they would not come true.She was not so silent in the well, though. She screamed and shouted.

Rickon and Shaggydog being dead and or killed on screen.
Tyrion being a dragon-rider or the third head of the dragon or anything else targ and/or dragon related.
These are things that could very well happen, alas.
ETA: these revelations would ruin the characters (two of which I can't stand) for me, they'd ruin the character's storyline.

Tyrion not being Tywin's son. It wouldn't exactly ruin the character for me, because I like him far too much for that to happen now, but it kinda messes up the whole "Tyrion is Tywin's son" quote by his aunt Genna which I really like :/

Jon Snow or Aegon being the prince who was promised, or anything to do with Jon/Dany falling in lurve and having magical babies together. I like both characters, but no.
Any of the Lannisters being secret Targaryens. No, they are Lannisters(an important family in the story) and their POVs helped the reader understand what it means to be a Lannister. I feel that if the most significant Lannisters(Jaime, Cersei, Tyrion) turn out to be Targaryen bastards, it would somehow cheapen them. I'm probably not making sense, but let's just say I wouldn't like it one bit...
