When You Wish Upon a Plot Point...
Posted 13 January 2013 - 07:35 AM
If you would be so kind, please pick one of your "I wish it'd happened differently" moments and share it. Tell us what you want to have happened instead and how you think it would've changed the series. Big or small, silly or serious. I'd love to see what my fellow fans think!

Actual one for the story and readership enjoyment, I wish Dany had said "oh, fuck Mereen, I'm taking my dragons to Westeros!". I'm bored of waiting for her. I don't care what happens to Mereen, or Yunkai, or Astapor, get to Westeros!

Wish that Catelyn had remained dead. That way we'd still have Beric Dondarrion around, Brienne would still be on her quest, Jaime would be able to keep making progress in his redemption and the only price would be a few Freys left alive.
This. So, so much. When Cat died, I thought "ok, at least I don't have to read about her anymore" - just to have her back even more annoying. Beric would have been much cooler and the resurrection thing wouldn't have gotten that stale.
Then in AFfC. Cersei. I kept thinking "no, no, don't you do that..." like all the time. Qyburn, Lady Stokeworth, dealing with the Tyrells, but most of all in regard what I think will prove to be her most fateful (for the realm) mistake: arming the faith.
Last thing Sansa and Tyrion. Sure, I can absolutely understand Sansa loathe him, especially after the battle at the Blackwater. But she could have shown a little kindness to him, like saying something remotely nice after him making it clear that he wouldn't force himself onto her. Maybe he would not have gone completely over the edge then.

1. Wish that he had included Loras Tyrell in the band of men he sent to bring Gregor Clegane to justice. I think his
inclusion would have moved the Tyrells to Ned's side and have made it almost impossible for Tywin Lannister to
make an alliance with them.
2. Wish that Ned had listened to Renly when he proposed seizing Cersei's children when Robert was dying. This
would have given him at least a chance of checkmating Cersei's schemes.

I wish Jaime kept boning Cersei. I wish Tommen was never born.

That and Tyrion telling Jaime he killed Joffrey. Why?

I wish Oberyn hadn't walked into Gregor's reach.
I wish Robb hadn't married Jeyne.

Robb marrying Jeyne Westerling. What a marvellous decision...
Pretty much any political decisions made by Eddard Stark. About as politically savvy as a wrecking ball.

I wish Jeyne Westerling had never happened.
You got your wish at least in the HBO series. I really think GRRM influenced them to make that change to put the whole "Jeyne's hips" issue to bed. There will be no heir to Rob Stark.
