  1. this is one of the things that makes be believe lads interpreted what he/she knew. The Brienne part I mean, it sounds like an interpretation. Anyway being main or secondary character is not fixed, so I don't think it is so important what Sandor is. yes, that doesn't makes sense re-watching the first two seasons, I think it's clear the Sandor really cares about her. There are many hints. As for Sansa, i think she is the most complex character in the show, Tyrion said something like how she will survive for her ability of not showing what she thinks. I really enjoy the publication of the scripts, I can't see how someone can be so fuzzy having got the script
  2. if they don't know what Sandor will do after AFFC that doesn't mean they don't know the end of his plot.... but I think you're right about the wight hunt. And in the books, for me, it is not going to happen , nor for Sandor nor for the other ones. As for the " George hasn't revealed kind of what he's going to do with that yet, but we took that kernel and fashioned this storyline ": if you read it out of the context I agree with you, but if you read all the conversation he was referring to Sandor's fate in AFFC and in the immediate future. Besides he doesn't say that George hasn't revealed to THEM what is going to happen, but to all the readers.
  3. cool thank you! I didn't think they could have been sooo far and still took so high resolution photos.... I agree about the drones! What did Brian say in the commentary? Last week I was searching for a SSM about VS swords and I've found one in which Martin talks about the unkiss. It made me think about the future of Sansa and Sandor, not necessary in a romantic way, but for sure in their role as important characters. "[GRRM is asked about Sansa misremembering the name of Joffrey's sword.] The Lion's Paw / Lion's Tooth business, on the other hand, is intentional. A small touch of the unreliable narrator. I was trying to establish that the memories of my viewpoint characters are not infallible. Sansa is simply remembering it wrong. A very minor thing (you are the only one to catch it to date), but it was meant to set the stage for a much more important lapse in memory. You will see, in A STORM OF SWORDS and later volumes, that Sansa remembers the Hound kissing her the night he came to her bedroom... but if you look at the scene, he never does. That will eventually mean something, but just now it's a subtle touch, something most of the readers may not even pick up on." I thought he could mean 2 things: sansan is going to happen (or at least they are going to talk about their "relationship") or Sansa's false memory will affect the events. So this SSM doesn't fit well with your idea, for me. I'm not saying you're wrong, but something doesn't add up. I'm sure Liam is right. So if you are right about Brian, then yes Sansan is not going to happen and Martin meant something else. Or in the meantime he changed his mind.
  4. First thread!! (if there are other threads on this topic, feel free to close it but I didn't find one on a comparison) Last week I watched a documentary on tv about climate abnormalities during the “Year without a Summer” (eruption of Tambora) and the events of 535 A.D. (For those who don't know what I'm talking about Year without a Summer and Weather events of 535 ) So we know something about what a long winter can cause in our world and we know something about it in Westeros too. But what can GRRM use of real long-winters experience and what is he forced to chage because of the plot? Ex: Some epidemic were related to long winters, but in a novel with a complex plot it is difficult to use in a realistic way. Storms and floods destroyed everything, but how will the characters travel? Will it ice the rivers? Note. Sorry for my English, it's not my first language
  5. Yeah, but I had never thought that a cold winter can cause an eruption that can cause a veeery long winter Yes you're right about Winterfell! np, we wait! thanks for all your posts! They're very interesting... yes, migration will be crucial! yes, this is a big problem, you know that a winter lasts more than people have estimated when it is already too late... LoL!
  6. Remark by Jaime's aunt Genna about Tyrion

    yes, these are other valid options of what she could fear....
  7. Remark by Jaime's aunt Genna about Tyrion

    I think the second part means that Tyrion is more similar to Tywin than Jaime. What I find more ambiguous is "That is what I fear the most in truth" what does she mean? what does she fear the most? Why? I think she fears that Jaime, feeling the weight of being Tywin's son, will act like his father even if he is different, dooming himself to be someone else. Indeed, later, Jaime acts like his father with Edmure, even if for a good purpose (prevent a bloodbath). Funny thing is that he plays that role because of Genna's words. But that is just my interpretation.
  8. Sorry I know it's a bit ot, but I didn't know snow can cause a volcano explosion. http://www.ansa.it/english/news/general_news/2017/03/16/10-hurt-in-etna-crater-explosion-3_d2d39fad-00a0-4a08-94be-8bc1bc31c999.html (it seems that all the injuries are well) So fire and ice---- > explosion/eruption. Big eruption -----> Long night?
  9. why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    and they couldn't because......... ?
  10. Skin Changing and The Last Greenseer

    I totally agree with everthing you're saying. Bran is a good boy, he will never be like Euron. Yes, empathy requires mirroring, but it's a matter of quantity, if there are no boundaries at all, you risk to loose yourself and to push people away from you. It's like when he is in Summer's skin and he has to come back and be bran to live. and it's true, you're right about Jaime and Cersei. The difference it's about perception: Cersei feels whole with Jaime, she exists but she needs Jaime to feel complete. She is so narcisistic that Jaime is only an appendage for her. But in skinchanging if you don't have boundaries, you don't exist, you feel disintegrate, you are the other one person (if the other one is strong enough to bear it and keep existing). yes and in a very sublte way. absolutely
  11. Skin Changing and The Last Greenseer

    You should edit the title: "skin changing, the last greenseer and kinky stuff" I agree with both of you. I wonder if Martin knew, when he chose the word skinchanging, about all the literature, theories etc around the metaphor of psychic "skin" and similar. You are empathic when you "feel" what someone else feels, not when you "are" someone else. Bran seems to be empathic with Meera, but probably he looses control. He has to learn how keeping a "right distance" ahahahah
  12. Thanks!! So I remembered it well.
  13. There was something Faraday80 asked Lads2 about a Maester, but I don't remember what he/she said, @DutchArya?
  14. Skin Changing and The Last Greenseer

    LoL not in a sexual way. If you prefer, imagine a crying child and a mother: if between them there is no "skin", they will be both anguished, the baby will not be comforted and will feel invaded. With Hodor it's different, Bran doesn't confuse his feelings with Hodor's and he doesn't want to comfort him in the same way as he wants to hug Meera. He was feeling differently: Meera: "Don't cry," he said. He wanted to put his arms around her Hodor: "Be quiet!" Bran said in a shrill scared voice so, if Meera experienced it, i'm not surprised she ran off. yes, a sort of deprivation chamber!
  15. Skin Changing and The Last Greenseer

    If he did it, the message is clear: you can use skichanging for doing some things, maybe comunicate, but not for being in an intimate relationship with someone. People can't stand it. He is overstimolated in the cave. Besides magic, the dark and the isolation are used to stimulate "powers" and "senses"
  16. Indeed, great post! Some add: In Volantis, the Black Wall, where only Old Blood are allowed to live within them. The story of the Black Brides House Hoare, their "black line" and Andals. Black blood seems associated often with Power and mystery. Sorry I'm a bit sleepy right now
  17. Oathkeeper or False Friend?

    This? (AFfC, Brienne I) But I agree with @Leo of House Cartel it doesn't means she considers her vow to Cat more important than Jaime's life. And anyway she sees LSH and Cat as if they're 2 different women. The real vow to save Sansa was sworn to Cat and to Jaime, and it means more to her than whatever LSH can say. Yeah damn earphone!!! he used it to skip the complete answear Btw great profile pic and nickname
  18. What an interesting thread! Blood is described as black,too. In another thread someone wrote some good posts about it, @OtherFromAnotherMother maybe? Black seems to be a powerful magic color, GRRM also used it for some VS swords like Blackfyre and Orphan-maker.
  19. How did Cersei get Jamie in the KG

    ahahahaha No, you're not alone. I've even quoted you and translated it! I like foreign languages. I can speak symbols, more than English. Btw yes I see words in your post now, but I like to keep my quote with shields, gifts, question marks, umbrellas, bicycles etc. I find it a bit eccentric and mysterious.
  20. [Book Spoilers] Jaime & Brienne- What's going on?

    I think it could mean they are working on the new season, they say "in production" and show a sword that is being sharpened, like a "under construction" sign. But they could have chosen any other sword, if they choose Oathkeeper it means it is and will be an important sword! They could have used Longclaw....
  21. it looks like a sharpener (don't know if it's the correct word in english) to me
  22. LoL I'm still quite sure this is not Gwen's hand
