  1. The Tully's claim on the Riverlands

    the problem is the quote that you started from.    "The Tullys of Riverrun were never kings, though the books of lineages will show any number of connections to the dynasties of the past. It may have been these old connections that started House Tully on its path to becoming Lords Paramount of the Trident under Aegon I."   is from the world of ice and fire. which is specifically written by an unreliable narrator that is sucking up to the current powers, essentially those that had a part of the rebellion.   yes, the tully's likely had ancestral connections to previous ruling houses. but it is likely that every noble family in the riverlands had the same. just as in the reach. look in thaqt same world in fire at the lannister tree over the past 100 years and how many families that interchanged with. now expand that tree back a few thousand years. the line that you start from is just a nicety to make the tullys seem less upjumped.
  2. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    one of those is a lot easier to achieve than the other
  3. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

      not confirmed. but by far the most likely from what we know
  4. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    of course he squired in the vale. that doesnt mean he was there constantly.    could it be someone else? yes. but robert is the most likely seeing as the description fits him so well and there is a clear reason to have a scene there. why would one of ned's ancestors be so tall? which of ned's ancestors are so important to the show that a scene of him,as a child would make it to the show.? what other southerner would be with ned? what other large southron of the same age as ned? and what southerner would have a scene of such importance that the show would not only do it, but cast specifically for it.   it could be something else, but the specificity of the descriptions makes it the most likely choice     also this: A father: He’s tough and old, an alpha male patriarch. The show is looking for a man with a Northern English Accent. He appears in one episode and has 2 lin   could be rickard    given that the brandon and ned roles are open ended, and the robert and rickard roles are one-time, there could be a series of visions of ned and brandon and lyanna, one of which features robert and one of which features rickard    edit: and if it really bothers you that somehow brandon and robert met, it isnt entirely necessary that they be in the same scene. the robert character has been cast in one scene. while ned is in an unkown about. it isn't mentioned that robert has a stick. that could be a separate scene in the vale.   but we know that robert loved lyanna, and thus, had met her. isn't it possible that he met brandon at the same time. isn't it possible that rickard with his southron ambitions, invited the young lord of storms end to winterfell to meet his daughter?

    one northern boy. one southern boy of the same age but big for his age. one northern boy a few years older and the ned has green eyes like sean bean     it makes by far the most sense of anything else.the descriptions are spot on. the characters and scene would resonate with viewers. it helps give us the reveal that they've been building to.   it will probably take place in winterfell. there is no reason those characters can't be together. we know that ned and robert were in the vale for a ong time while brandon was primarily at winterfell. (although we know he was often as far south as barrowton and they all were at least one tourney.) what we don't have is a detailed whereabouts of their entire childhoods. 
  6. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

      not in the tower of joy or the tourney but for an earlier scene. she would match up well with the young robert-ned-brandon that they are casting.    clearly, with all the hints about rhaegar they brought up last season, they are building to the jon reveal. a scene with the established youngsters could demonstrate the dynamic, with robert already loving lyanna, and lyanna telling ned that she doesnt care for robert. perhaps brandon being adamant on the match from a political standpoint. 
  7.     this makes no sense. both of aerys's parents were targs so he is a full targ. but jaeherys ii was only a quarter targ, because his mother and paternal grandmother were not targs. well make that 1/8th targ since his father's father's mother was also not a targ. so why did aerys and his children, who were similarly only 1/8th targ. (this is a simplification as non targ blood had been introduced many times before that) have the targ look.   moreover, why do some of daeron ii's children have the traditional targ look and some have the dornish look of their mother?   it just doesn't work the way you think it does. however westerosi genetics work, i doubt bastardy makes a difference
  8. Season 6 Casting, Sightings and Speculations

    there is no way that this isnt ned, brandon and robert. the descriptions are too specific and too dead on. the large boy is the one that is not northern. and maise plays lyanna?
  9. Straczynski/Wachowski Sense8 on Netflix

    at the same time, this selection of characters is not in the same stratosphere of heroes season 1 personally, i liked lito and kala the most with capheus behind them. and wolf gang can just leave the show at any time
  10. Worst dialogue yet

    i would wager the bad pussy line was written by a non-native english speaker
  11. The Blackfyre

    nice work withe the op but if anything it proves that the concept of aegon, who i do believe is a blackfyre, was thought of in between asos and affc. there are no mentions of blackfyres in the first two books and the three mentions in asos are tangential and clearly only world building and useful in describing a particular circumstance, the same way that maegor was mention several times. great post but your evidence supports the opposite conclusion as you wanted it to. martin came up with aegon after writing asos (possibly while writing TSS) and thus started planting seeds in affc
  12. some people were saying that you did not enjoy those shows?
  13. Straczynski/Wachowski Sense8 on Netflix

    i accidentally watched episode 8 first. i knew what the general concept was and id heard that it doesnt make sense at first so i didnt really notice. i actually was thinking that it wasnt confusing at all........maybe 35 mins in it got to a part where it just seemed like this shouldnt happen so early and then i looked at what episode i was watching. so i went back and watched the first 3.i might have preferred 8 as a starting point. it's.....decent. i like how they weave in completely different types of stories and the cinemtography is fantastic. the contrast between the different location is far and away the best part of the show. i can't say that the characters are all that compelling though and i think it will certainly be hard pressed to make 8 interesting storylines feel complete. the one thing that kinda bugs me is the characters for the most part are just totally cool with their ability and dont question it at all
  14. The Mindy Project

    yeah, he had his moments, like most of the characters i guess. i just never bought him as that great of a character or worth wrapping that much of the plot around
