  1. Clearly she knows that he's killed Jory and wounded Ned, but still she never recites his name even though she includes people like Dunsen for stealing a helm. Am I missing something here?
  2. I suggest burning most of the Iron fleet to the ground, and then allowing for any mainland fleet to pillage or loot the Iron Islands as they please, whenever they want. They will be allowed to kill, maim, rape, steal, take back women they have stolen as their wives, and they will be celebrated as heroes for it. Let's see how the Ironborn scum like it when they're on the receiving end of reaving.
  3. No. If someone burnt the Iron Islands to the ground people everywhere would rejoice.
  4. Joffrey literally insults Robb in the next few paragraphs. He calls him a coward and a child, go back and read the passage if you don't believe me. This isn't the Starks being disrespectful, this is Joffrey being a cunt. So you admit that this was another case of Joffrey simply being a cunt, rather than Stark disrespect. Just because you're the Queen/King doesn't mean you get to disrespect everyone around in every way possible. Look at what happened to Aerys. You mean like how the Lannisters tried to kill Bran without reprisal? Ned gave Cersei a very merciful choice, considering the circumstances.
  5. Joffrey was the one who wanted to fight with actual steel, not Robb. Arya did not "sic" Nymeria on Joffrey, Joffrey attacked Arya with an actual sword and the direwolf defended her. So Cersei committing a sin against the gods in the home of the Starks is totally respectful, right? I don't think Cersei was particularly torn up about Tyrion being kidnapped, either. And the Lannisters had so much respect for the ruling Baratheons that they conspired to murder the king.
  6. Are you really asking this after you made the claim that Dany would conquer all of Essos and Westeros with no sweat?
  7. And Dany "Tortured a girl because I am so awesum and I have dragons lol" Targaryen is fit to rule?
  8. Yes, because clearly she did a great job in Slaver's Bay, with the genocide and general state of violence and whatnot.
  9. The only food they'll want from them is Frey pie.

  12. See my reasons in my post above for why Tywin had to do what he did. If you think he could have done different I'd be glad to hear it.
  13. I'm not saying the children or the servants had any blame, but Tywin had no other viable option. Accept the Reyne's offer of Lannister hostages? Tywin looks weak. Go home without the issue resolved? Tywin looks weak. Attempt to storm the mines? Tywin loses his army in the process. What else could he have done that would have been beneficial to him? On the topic of Aerys, it wasn't the exact same situation with Brandon and Rickard, considering that his son had kidnapped their sister/daughter in the first place with no provocation. And Aerys was legally required to give Rickard an opponent he could actually fight, not fire.
  14. A family that had snubbed, insulted, and outright threatened their rightful liege lord at every turn.
  15. I'm inclined to be sympathetic to him in this particular scenario, especially when you look at all the details. The Reynes had essentially spit in the face of the Lannisters because of the weakness of Tytos, refusing to pay their debts, and even taking Lannister hostages once. And then they have the gall to rise up against the Lannisters when Tywin demands they answer for their crimes against their liege lord. So already they've made themselves unsympathetic. To make matters worse, after the defeat of the Tarbecks and it becomes clear that Tywin has all but won, the Reynes still have the nerve to demand hostages from the Lannisters in exchange for peace, showing that negotiating with them wasn't going to get anywhere. In addition, the mines that they hid in had passages that could be defended indefinitely, and they had plenty of food and water, so the Reynes couldn't be besieged with conventional tactics. So Tywin took the last option available to him after the arrogance and the insolence of the Reynes had forced him into that situation- flooding the tunnel and drowning them all. Those are my thoughts on the debacle, but I'd like to hear others points of view.
