  1. 1. Varys 2. Arya Stark 3. Sansa Stark 4. The Hound - Sandor Clegane 5. Ser Barristan Selmy 6. Robb Stark 7. Arianne Martell 8. Jon Snow 9. Tyrion Lannister 10. Tormund Giantsbane and Mance Rayder (they both needed to be included)
  2. Sansa's fate, and its possibly only because her story arc has taken a parallel turn in the show that I don't want to continue following it. Idk, I'm just not a fan of what they're doing with her character in the show. She had so much more depth and, indeed, a better story arc in the books. The show spoiling things for the readers is inevitable, at this stage. I'd rather be reading the books, but in the years we will be waiting for them to be finished, we need something to keep us going.
  3. Are you sure you're reading the right book? On the contrary, FEAST was one of my favourites in the whole series. It takes a different approach than the other books, and though the pace is somewhat slowed, its done so very well. We have time to explore the world of Westeros at previously unimaginable levels and got POVs from new characters, it sufficed only to enrich ASOIAF overall IMO.
  4. Jaime is the most popular answer, though I found I liked him even more after FEAST. I liked Jon in THRONES, though his character became somewhat forlorn and mopey by the third book. However, by its conclusion, he really had grown as a character.
  5. Illyrio and Varys were confident that Drogo would never bow to Viserys', or indeed Dany's, whims. In the unlikely event that he did, they would allow the Dothraki to come to Westeros and have Aegon swoop in and save the day. All Targaryen claimants to the Throne bar (f?)Aegon himself removed and the army of barbarians crushed - the young "son" of Rhaegar would be welcomed by Westeros with open arms.
  6. Hodor, of course. I kid, of course. Honestly, Tyrions received so much plot armour at this stage that he'll likely survive it all. If he doesn't, he'll live until the very end and no doubt die a valiant death. He is GRRM's interpretation of himself, after all.
  7. Personally, I don't see it. But that's just me! There's overwhelming evidence surrounding R+L=J, and I just don't see very much of a motive for Aerys to have raped Lyanna. He was had already begun his descent into madness at that stage. He was too paranoid routing out his apparent "enemies" to track down his son's lover and rape her.
  8. Exactly! Initially they seem the most dull, but upon re-reading you realise that Bran's dream-fueled chapters are ripe with foreshadowing.
  9. A fair point. I'm unsure about it, but you very well could be right. I'll look into it! It's food for thought.
  10. Continuing with my writing project. A history essay that needs to be rewritten and submitted in a week's time. A party tonight that I likely won't go to in favour of shoving pasta down my throat and reading threads on the forum
  11. I don't think it was meant to be a plan. He might have brought it in the event that 1) the Stark children were found, and he wanted to punish them or 2) he was preparing himself for the possibility that they could not be found and he would flay innocents. However, it seems far more likely that he had his flaying tools with him because he often would; flaying is somewhat of a hobby for him, after all.
  12. Arya's and Sansa's were quite interesting. At the time, I was not a fan of Sansa (oh, how times change) but the POVs from two very young, somewhat naive characters in a world so wrought with betrayal, their take on things were interesting. It preserved that sense of innocence in the first book, when the world was not unlike Robert - fat, lazy and ultimately unproductive, but safe. I really enjoyed Jon's POVs, more so than I did in future books. The Night's Watch was mystifying, and Jon's adjustment to this entirely new way of life was quite intriguing. I'm not proud of it, but on my first read I skipped a chapter or two from Bran. I just found his chapters dragged on for far, far longer than they needed to.
  13. A friend was rather obsessed with the books, and she recommenced it to me some four years ago. I plowed through the books, and have been patiently waiting for the TWOW ever since I've been browsing the forums avidly for some two years, until joining this summer.
  14. AFAIK, no. Though I'm a little sketchy on this, so perhaps ask in the Small Questions thread?
  15. It would be a high boon to ask of Robert, and given Dorne's opinion of him, it seems quite a lot to ask for a relatively pointless favour.
