  1. Stannis and Davos forever, 'tis the love that cannot die!

    1. Alexia


      I'm just seeing this now. I love Stannis and Davos together so much... the sexual tension just oozes off the page whenever they are together!

      And, hugs. I always do love reading your posts.

  2. Your avatar is amazing ;)

  3. Unofficial Stark and Targaryen Skins for Westeros

    I love having the Stark skin again (and the stripped avatars) on my work computer. It is so much more discreet. Thanks so much for doing this. :grouphug:
  4. [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    Quick comment: shouldn't the topic now be titled Arianne II rather than I post-lord-Goat's clarification? [yes - typo. Thanks for pointing it out. Ang]
  5. 1. Sansa Stark: She's clearly being set up for bigger things 2. Arya Stark: I'm unclear about how she'll get reincorporated into the larger story, but think she's safe 3. Bran Stark: He's going to become a wizard apprentice and fight the Others 4. Rickon Stark: The next Lord of Winterfell 5. Jon Snow: By authorial fiat 6. Arianne Martell: She'll become the ruling Princess of Dorne 7. Myrcella Baratheon-Lannister: Call it a "gut" feeling 8. Samwell Tarly: By authorial fiat 9. Brynden Tully: He will work to get Riverrun back into Tully hands 10.Theon Greyjoy: The next Lord of the Iron Isles
  6. [Book Spoilers] EP108 Discussion Part 2

    The Mountain is not a sociopath. Your average sociopath, you couldn't tell the difference between a normal person and said sociopath. Littlefinger is an example of a sociopath. The Mountain has greater problems than merely being a sociopath.
  7. [Book Spoilers] EP108 Discussion Part 2

    On the Syrio discussion, I don't want to get to sucked in because I didn't watch the fight scene all that closely, but getting hit with a wooden sword in the back of the knee sounds pretty disabling to me (with the potential for permanent damage). Let me join in that toast. I teared up when she faced down those guards, knowing what I knew about what would happen to her.
  8. How do you want Cersei to die?

    Do you have a quote? The only thing I remember is that she was making fun of Sansa for believing in true knights, giving her advice on how to make people fear her when she became queen, and telling her how much it sucks to be a woman and that being queen doesn't make up for it.
  9. How do you want Cersei to die?

    I'd just like to point out that Cersei never compared herself against Sansa, or if she did, we were not in her head at the time. She compared herself against Margaery during her wedding to Tommen in AFFC. That being said, I'd love to see Sansa as the younger, more beautiful queen who will bring Cersei down.
  10. How do you want Cersei to die?

    I agree with this.
  11. How do you want Cersei to die?

    I think a nice padded cell beneath Winterfell...or even Casterly Rock...would be a wonderful fate for Cersei. While I agree that the narrative seems to be setting Jaime up to kill her, I would prefer that it fall to Sansa or Margaery to judge her. If not those two ladies, I wouldn't object to Daenerys or Lady Olenna.
  12. I'd like some quotes to show this to be the case. Arya, for example, clearly kills Dareon for oathbreaking (though I think there's some rage that he won't take her to the Wall influencing that, as well). Ned Stark kills Gared for being an oathbreaker and even tells Bran of how dangerous the men abandoning the NW are as oathbreakers. I didn't see Ned Stark executing Gared for poaching or whatever it was he was sent there for. Jaime wonders at one point what the High Septon would think of an oath sworn under duress. Wonders! Is there anything in the books, anywhere, suggesting that the men of the NW are not bound by their oaths? And what crimes did Ser Aliser and others sent to the Wall for fighting on the wrong side commit besides fighting for their sworn lord? They swore their oaths under duress...
  13. Why dissolve it when, 1) nobody believed in the Others to begin with; 2) its such a handy, ancient institution for sending prisoners to; 3) its an ancient, honorable institution; 4) everyone in there has taken vows, many of whom have been convicted of crimes and something else would need to be found for them; 5) the subjugation of the entire wildling culture is unlikely and unrealistic, considering the wildlings from the Mountains of the Moon. Its a great prison camp - if it ain't broke, why fix it? I'm still voting for Jonarion the Oathbreaker, or perhaps the Serpent (no true dragon, he). Songs will be sung a thousand years from now, of bastards borne of lust and lies who succumb to their nature, as exemplified by the Oathbreaker. The Mummer's Dragon works well too.
  14. :bowdown: :agree: You said it first, you said it best.
  15. I see it! And Natasha Rostov has begun to remind me quite a bit of Sansa Stark. ;)
