  2. I wouldn't want to argue with me.

      Did you know that you can comment about these comments on people's pages? It's weird! I just discovered this AND Jimboy's Tacos on the same night. Hi to Ms. Apple Martini, which was, by the way, Zack Braff's favorite fruity alcoholic beverage on Scrubs, whereas I like to say MOJITO with all the latin gusto I can muster ....Go Saints! (no arguing took place here)

      I doubt anyone wants to argue with you, for several reasons.

      I argued with myself once. It started out cordial, but then I disagreed with myself, then it turned into an argument...now I don't talked to myself.

  3. But that's not how we see them doing it up to this point. At this point, all we've seen are them taking dead people's faces. You mention Melisandre, but her glamors don't really resemble how we've seen the FM operate with their faces, so I'm not sure why she's relevant to the argument. Based on what we've actually seen the Faceless Men actually do, for Arya to actually use Sansa's face, Sansa would have to be dead. And I don't see that happening. And LOL at Sansa being a "fan favorite." I love her, yes, and she has her fans, but a huge number of people even on here give her a huge amount of (undeserved) scorn.
  4. I don't agree with it at all but at least it's different. ETA: Isn't the inventory of faces you can take limited to dead people? So if Arya is impersonating Sansa by taking on her appearance, that means Sansa will be dead. Like Jaqen killed Pate and then took his face, and all the faces of dead people that Arya sees in the House of Black and White. Are you willing to go that far with this theory? ETA2: I think the "twist" with this prophecy has already occurred, with people thinking that Sansa ripping the head off the doll fulfilled the prophecy when, I'd strongly argue, it didn't. Which sets up a surprise later on when Sansa actually fulfills it.
  5. Thanks, I've been trying to find it. (Broadly speaking, if you're quoting from the books, it's super helpful to cite it so other people can corroborate it easily without going on a fishing expedition.)
  6. Well there you go. ETA: I gotta say the drunk/madman and laughing thing, if it is deliberate, is clever as hell. When it's spelled out and put side by side like that, it's also compelling to the point where you'd have to be in deep damn denial not to admit it.
  7. :drool: ETA: To put the Jon quote in context, it occurs in SoS during the fight on the Wall and he's trying to rally the men and give them instructions. "Jon laughed, laughed like a drunk or a madman, and his men laughed with him. " So Jon is laughing, during one of his first real trials as a leader, hedged in language that has applied to two different kings, and his men are following him and rolling with it. Interesting. The "... and his men laughed with him" line is what makes it stick out to me, after the parallel with Barristan's thought.
  8. :bowdown: Or someone will stand up in the middle of the trial and confess, Perry Mason-style.
  9. GRRM doesn't do cheap "gotcha" moments. He's not a hack, he leaves clues. Whoever the Harpy is (and I'm still about 95% confident it's the Grace), there will have been clues to his or her identity. It's not going to be anything out of nowhere with no foreshadowing behind it.
  10. That's how Dany sees her. She's presented from Dany's POV as being helpful and trustworthy. Whereas Reznak is presented as suspicious. My point is, one is obviously meant to come off as villainous at "face value" and it's not the Grace. Hence my amusement at your "face value" comment, when your presumed two candidates are far and away the most "obvious" candidates, by a "face value" metric.
  11. Reznak being the Harpy is easily one of the more "face value" solutions there is. Meanwhile, the Green Grace "at face value" is a sweet, helpful, diplomatic old lady. There's nothing "face value" about the GG being the Harpy.
  12. The difference being that "Wylla is Jon's mother" is explicitly said and "the Green Grace is the Harpy" is not.
  13. It's obviously the Green Grace. ETA: And that Dany suspects Reznak should show that he isn't actually involved in anything. It's the people she trusts that should wave a red flag.
