  1. Are people actually assuming both Jon and Dany will both survive long enough to rule over Westeros together . . . seriously?
  2. I was so pissed off at Arya this episode(most episodes really). Sansa didn't deserve that.
  3. That's what I've been saying ever since I read the leaks. It does feel forced.
  4. What I don't understand is why that's indicative of bad writing. I always see people making this mistake of painting a character's flaws as "bad writing."
  5. I disagree. If what you say is true, Jon would be failing at a comically-high frequency. I think all the writers want to do is show the complications of playing this game, and how neither Jon nor Sansa are right, but they do need eachother.
  6. It's almost as if D&D want viewers to doubt Sansa . . . . No no no, that can't be it. I'll never understand why people like to paint character flaws as weak writing. Sansa is a flawed human being. So is Jon. They struggle to trust eachother not because they don't care about eachother, but because they doubt the other's competency.
  7. Viserion is captured and publicly made an example of by Cersei.
  8. I don't get all the complaints about false tension between Jon and Sansa. They're both unreasonable and imperfect people, and this is how they express their imperfect way of communicating with eachother. It's like when people complain that Sansa is inconsistent. No, she's nuanced. My point is this is WHO the characters are. Just like real people, they're messy, hypocritical at times, and rarely communicate their ideas effectively. This is some good writing right here.
  9. I doubt that. If I had a 13yo daughter, that argument would never fly. Not with I as the parent, or a court of law in most countries. I don't know why SanSan shippers are even trying. She's too young. It's creepy. He's a hebo. It's an open and shut case. Look, I'm not interested in reducing arguments about the complexity of the brain, especially in development, or the legalities of this pairing if it took place in the real world in the 21st century to shipper fantasy. I know everything I need to know about this pairing, and I've concluded that it is an extremely creepy pairing, to say the least. If I were Sansa's parent, Sandor would be placed in the black cells. I'm ok with GRRM writing about it. Fiction is fiction, but let's not mince the truth here. It's inexcusable on Sandor's part.
  10. You're right. He's not a pedo. He's a hebo. As for Sansa, she's not old enough to make these decisions, and Sandor shouldn't exploit that. People don't seem to understand this. Sansa ISN'T old enough to know what she wants. The fact that she's confusing lust and compassion with love proves this.
  11. What are you talking about? First of all, you're trying to generalize a reasoning/debate rule to the scientific method and how science is conducted. In a debate, you never ask somebody to prove a negative assertion. Only positive assertions need to be proven . . . IN A DEBATE. Second of all, you don't seem to understand what I wrote. Laslty, stay on topic. Though I did go on a tangent, I didn't drop the topic completely as you just did. Yes, it's lust, mixed in with a bit of compassion. Lust doesn't limit a person to thinking about another person in a sexual manner, especially when they're so confused they think they're actually in love. I remember how I used to think when I was younger. I would think similar things as Sansa. It's not an on/off switch. It's a gradual change that happens to everyone. This is why the drinking age is 18-21. This is why the driving age is 16-18. Different countries disagree on when people are mentally ready to assume the responsibilities of a specific action. What GRRM intended is irrelevant. What he wrote makes Westeros look like it's full of hebos(not a typo). I don't have to wait for moral relativism to shift the goal post to wherever is convenient.
  12. Sophie Turner seems to be a PetyrSansa shipper. At least as partners.
  13. Experience doesn't accelerate brain development. It certainly creates new connections in their brains, but it doesn't make their brains reach adulthood faster. Anyways, another point. People keep saying Sansa should marry for love, but what makes you think she can even love Sandor? He's not a lovable person. He's a horrible person, albeit, with some regret. As if that matters. This plays into Sansa's mental maturity. She clearly feels lust, but immature and inexperienced people will often confuse this for love. The fact that she's picturing Sandor in her marriage bed only confirms her lack of mental maturity. She's not old enough to choose.
  14. No, only positive assertions have to be proven. This is done because negative assertions can be extremely hard, if not outright impossible to prove, and because the absence of something is self-evident by the lack of evidence proving its existence, in this case the usefulness of House Clegane. For example: Someone asserting that dragons don't exist don't have to prove their assertion. The burden of proof is on those who disagree. Given that you have no evidence of House Clegane's usefulness, I can only conclude that you don't know. Moving on. A fair point about House Clegane being able to become a Northern house, but given that you can't even prove whether House Clegane is useful, nor prove if it even exists anymore, it makes no sense to talk about House Clegane as if it exists. I can address what you wrote. The small write-up you did on symbolism wasn't compelling enough to convince me of the importance of your interpretation of the symbols. Interesting read though. So in other words, it's a creepy ship? Moral relativism doesn't change that. It's fiction, and based on actual history, and that's fine. However, shipping it?
  15. Burden of proof is always on those who make the positive assertions. I don't have to prove that House Clegane is useless. YOU have to prove that it's USEFUL. Also, House Clegane isn't a part of the north. I guess it can just move. I don't know how these things work. Also, Sansa(in the show at least) isn't like other Starks. She's aiming to be smarter at playing the game than her father. Symbols can be misinterpreted, which I feel you are doing. Heavily. I don't need to address it any further than that. Yes, it's creepy. I believe Sansa is 14 in the last book. You honestly think she's mature enough to make these decisions for herself? Whatever Sandor is willing to do or not do, it doesn't change the fact that he's thought about her in an extremely inappropriate way. No matter how anybody spins it, it's a creepy ship. It may be contextually accurate, but us the audience are reading it from the 21st century. The correct response is discomfort.
