  1. [Spoilers] Criticize without repercussion

    "Creatively it made sense to us because we wanted it to happen. "
  2. [Spoilers] Criticize Without Repercussion

    Hey guys remember last season when people were upset about Sansa's rape and one excuse offered was that once she was married there was no way to avoid it without changing the fundamental rules of their society? Apparently D&D have no issues changing the fundamental rules of fictional societies when it suits them re: Dany and the Dothraki. (And I'm not arguing Dany should have been rape, I'm arguing there was no reason for Sansa to be, even you wanted her to marry Ramsey.

    Man I usually pray my favourite characters WON'T show up in an episode.
  4. [Spoilers] Criticize Without Repercussion

    So I know that the Mel reveal was supposed to be this huge ZOMG SHE'S OLD thing but I'm confused by the mechanics : is the amulet just a glamour or does it actually de-age someone? Because if it's just a glamour then damn Mel's been doing a lot of physical stuff that would be hard for someone older like the constant riding and the stairs at the Wall and Dragonstone-I'm thinking Master Cresswen level agonies here.
  5. Would Robb make a good king?

    Ehhh "cunning" would be preserving Jeyne W.'s honour by wedding her to a bannerman. "Honourable" would be not bedding her in the first place. Robs faults were a mix of youth and not listening to his mother, and a king who doesn't heed good advice cannot be a good king.
  6. The Kight of the Laughing Tree was Eddard

    Tommen wouldn't win because he'sbadat it. Lyanna had excellent riding skills which are extremely important in jousting. If her opponents were poor jousters who did not practice-and they do seem to have been less than stellar-then Lyanna beating them is perfectly feasible. Moreover, the stunt is in character for her, as it would be for Arya.
  7. The Kight of the Laughing Tree was Eddard

    Ah no, it isNedwho calls him "slender as a reed". Sansa merely refers to the golden roses about his slender waist. OT: Lyanna unhorsed three not very competent knights, as an excellent horsewoman, in a sport where riding is essential. This is not the absurdity you're making it out to be. Ask yourself: would you be making such a fuss if Lyanna had been a ten year old boy who'd never jousted?
  8. Winds update (not a blog)

    ...are you serious? The Burning of Shireen, Brienne straight up murdering an unarmed man, Tyrion's laughable introduction to Dany, Bad Pussywere some of the best the series had to offer? Really? And I haven't even begun to mention the lionisation of Ramsey or how the death of the dogkeeper's daughter was portrayed as revenge for Sansa. Season five wasterribleand the idea that the same writers will be adapting tWoW makes me ill.
  9. The Kight of the Laughing Tree was Eddard

    It's worth noting that the other men described as "slender" are: Lyn Courbray, Allister Thorne, Marillion and Oberyn Martell. It is usedoften to describe women's necks and hips, hands and fingers in general, and swords,towers and blades.
  10. Petyr and Catelyn; One big tragedy

    *sigh*
  11. Anyone else rooting for Littlefinger?

    LF is kind of like the Snape of ASIaF, if you removed every last bit of heroism from Snape and replaced it with resentment. Yes, he was turned down by Cat, and rejection hurts. And yes he was nearly killed in a duel that amounts to little more than sanctioned murder. But he reacts to this bytorturing little girls.
  12. Do you remember 9/11? or would you rather not?

    I was eleven and in Saudi-I remember being confused about why the adults were so nervous about a tragedy that occurred so far away. It wasn't that people were upset or even afraid of the terrorists -they were afraid of America's reaction and the possibility of a third world war.
  13. If Cat knew R+L=J?

    She'd give him up to the Others yo.
  14. She doesn't actually. She pities him and calls him "kind"-she's never mean to him, she just refuses to get to know him, which makes these claims about Sansa being cruel so laughable.

    But Obara isn't Ellaria's right, so she has three daughters.
