  1. God, I'm so mad I missed the Mereenese Fighting Pits. I should just quit my job so I could troll these forums all day.
  2. It's really interesting to see the break down of Melisandre's powers and presence in this book, especially coming off Swords, where she's presented as an incredibly powerful force. In Swords, we're told that Melisandre is unaffected by the hazards of the North ("'You're not cold, My Lady?"he asked. She laughed. "Never."') thanks to the protection of the Lord of Light. We've seen her birth shadow babies, we've seen her burn of eagles with her brain, we've seen her seduce an entire retinue of nobles and knights. But in Dragons, we get a glimpse at the sausage being made, and Mel's importance and place and power suffers for it. What's interesting is that in Dragons we get some serious foils for Melisandre in the forms of Moqorro and Bennaro (and to a lesser extent Thoros in Crows, although Thoros always seemed pretty D-List when placed next to Mel). Where Mel's prophecies are muddy and incorrectly interpreted, Benerro's major prophecy in the book (the Selaesori Qhoran reaching Mereen) is clear and imminent. Where Melisandre's fire sorcery manifests as little more than parlor tricks, Moqorro serves us Victarion Necromancyfist. Added to this is the fact that most of the cities across the Narrow Sea respect, if not revere R'hllor. After Dragons, how do you guys think red magic will evolve, or retrogress, in the next two books? Is it still something to be feared, or will it fizzle out like Melisandre? Has Mel fizzled, or is she still a legit threat?
  3. Awesome profile pic!

  4. Targaryen looks

    Personal preference, but I am not into super fair dudes, so I've never really been about the Targ males. They're way down on the list, with the Baratheons (especially young Robert), the Martells and Khal Fucking Drogo at the top. I guess it also doesn't help that I imagine all the Targ dudes in the series to be little more than fancy-haired twinks. Their eyes are pretty awesome, though.
  5. Introductions

    Great name. Listening to the audiobooks stoned was maybe the best decision I've ever made in my entire life.
  6. Who are your top four characters?

    My first three slots would go to the dragons, but for the sake of being a real person: 1. Daenerys and her dragons 2. Bran 3. Arya 4. Euron Crow's Eye.
  7. [Book Spoilers] EP 210 Discussion

    Oh my God, those sweetling baby dragons. There really is a God(s).
  8. Emilia as Dany and every moment of Qarth is giving me everything I need. When I saw Quaithe in that mask, I did NOT know how to act. I was so nervous for this season, but they keep exceeding my expectations. I just want to see Viserion and Rhaegal.
  9. Does Cersei truly love her children, Jaime, anyone?

    Before we contine, WoS is short for Walk of Shame right?
  10. Does Cersei truly love her children, Jaime, anyone?

    I'm interested to see how much Cersei takes from that WoS. I think there's a pretty good chance she'll revert back into that stank monster we've all grown to admire, especially if she wins that trial by combat.
  11. The Winds of Winter is Going to be a BLOODBATH

    Arya and Sansa are the only two characters in the series who's lives I'd bet on. I think it's a tough sell to kill and eleven-year-old girl who's endeared herself to the majority of the readership. Plus, at this point in the series, Arya's got one of the more impressive skill sets for survival. She proven she can warg, make companions, overcome significant grief, thrive in a foreign environment, plus she's getting some serious assassin training. Sansa's got a major role to play. While I've always enjoyed her POVs, I've always been a little confused as to her placement in the series (Her location always overlapped with Arya or Ned or Tyrion) until Crows. There's a good chance she'll become the new Littlefinger, and as we all know, that guy is untouchable.
  12. Does Cersei truly love her children, Jaime, anyone?

    Cersei certainly loves Cersei. Does that count? I think she thinks she loves her children. She certainly loved Jamie through the first three books, probably more than her kids. I attribute a lot of her ACoK freakouts to the stress of Jamie's imprisonment. I'd also argue that she loved the idea of Tywin, but again, she loved it insofar as she felt she was the second-coming of Tywin's fear-based, awe-inspiring leadership. At the end of the day, it's clear that Cersei puts herself before anyone else. If she realizes that or not, well, that's another question.
  13. The Winds of Winter is Going to be a BLOODBATH

    POVs that'll still be POVs in ADoS: Jon Daenerys Tyrion Arya Sansa Melisandre Asha Bran Sam Brienne Maybe: Theon, Arianne, Davos Victarion will become UnVictarion, mark my words...
  14. [Book Spoilers] Ep 202 Discussion

    BABY SHEREEN!!!!!!!!!!!! This is what I'm most upset about. There go my chances of seeing greyscale, and I was really looking forward to watching Patchface act like a creep. Otherwise, everything was great. Arya was great, the Greyjoys were great, Cersei is doing a great job becoming that asshole we know and love her to be. I'm just going to say this right now: I like book-Tyrion way more than show-Tyrion.
  15. How would you rate episode 201?

    Where THE FUCK was Baby Shereen and Patchface? The shadows should be dancin'! Stannis and crew were a little lame, and I wish the season would have started with them, and I wanted them to linger on Dragonstone a little while longer, but I have trust. Everything else was pretty good. I was also pretty inebriated. I'll continue the theme of a 7.
