  1. Is Dany Going Mad?

    I think Groat, it is her general lack of empathy towards others and I actually love Arya.
  2. Is Dany Going Mad?

    I didn't say a crazy person can't question themselves. I said a megalomaniac does not question themselves or has self doubts. Including Dany herself which is a good sign. Mad people don't generally question their own sanity. At the moment I do not see any evidence for madness at all.
  3. Is Dany Going Mad?

    This. I think someone just said one day "Hey I think Dany's going mad" and people just clung to it for various reasons. I have seen some bizarre claims about Dany, but this is the most bizarre one. I guess it came about when she had those visions out in the Dothraki Sea after she eat some (possibly psychedelic) berries... I guess. I re-read ADWD recently, and I was purposely trying to find any hints of madness from Dany. All I found was a girl who was depressed to be honest. Didn't Ned's older brother have that? I'm trying to rattle my brain trying to find an example of her going Viserys in ASoS and I honestly can't find one.
  4. Is Dany Going Mad?

    I guess you didn't read Dany's inner monologue where she constantly doubts herself and her actions? She isn't brimming with confidence in Meereen that's for sure. Isn't that opposite of a megalomaniac?
  5. If Jon is resurrected, there has to be a cost. GRRM has always stated so. Wouldn't it be a massive twist if he just died though. Can't see it myself, but hey this is ASOIAF.

    I always thought that vision was about Victorian's death floating in the bloody water.

    Victorian's plan was a smash and grab. Go in, captured Daenerys, control the dragons and leave. However Dany is not there, what will he do?

    Not saying they didn't. I am just saying I understand what Jaime did, as I would have done the same thing and I don't understand why he got the flak that he did for killing a clearly insane King before innocents got hurt,
  9. The "Bittersweet" Ending

    Or I read history books about that period.
  10. The "Bittersweet" Ending

    To be honest I am really happy that GRRM said it was going to be bittersweet. I don't actually like fantasy that much, I find most of it cliché, but these books read more like a historical medieval fiction than fantasy and I love that. In GoT, the Stark family are the typical cliché fantasy family, more at home with King Arthur and his knights than the violence and treachery of the medieval period - and boy are they put through the mill for it - Fantasy honourable good guys would not live in a medieval world. Ned's fantasy like honour kills him, Robb's fantasy like honour kills him. Now you have Sansa trying to learn the game, Arya - a borderline sociopathic assassin, Bran working with Bloodraven - who's intentions could not be as good as people imagine, and gods know what little Rickon could turn out like with a bad temperament and hanging out with cannibals. Great stuff!
  11. The "Bittersweet" Ending

    I thought that was the case and hoped it would be as Westerlings have blood of the first men in them (if I remember correctly), until D&D cast a Volantis girl instead of Jeyne Westerling, basically saying Westerling is not important to the overall plot. Shame.

    That's the one thing that annoyed me about characters' treatment of Jaime. He broke his oath yes, but so did the Starks, Baratheons, Tullys, and Arryns who all swore an oath of fealty to the crown. Why was it okay for them to break their oaths, but not Jaime? Very hypocritical.
  13. [TWoW Spoilers] Barristan

    Suzanna, I agree with you. I think George likes her too much for her to become the villian. But Dany haters want her to be the villian to justify their hate, as their reasoning is on pretty shaky ground. But that being said I wouldn't like to predict the remaining books at all.

    Unless of course the Narrow Sea freezes over.....

    Actually scratch that. Sounds more like a language derived from Latin.
