  1. Maybe it was all that kissing and marriage bed stuff about Sandor coming from Sansa. GRRM sure wrote a lot of it...
  2. He added that to the story when fans said it would be more dramatic. If you want to talk about Sansa's knight... there's a ton of references for Sandor, and they are all coming from Sansa. There's a tourney where she says he will win, filled with Beauty and the Beast symbolism. He protects her and rescues her over and over again. When she's in trouble again, she imagines he's there, hears his voice. They talk about Florian and Jonquil and true knights repeatedly. She keeps his cloak with her summer silks (a cloak she positively obsesses about). And much more. Lots more here...
  3. Yeah, she rarely thinks of Jon. She thinks of Sandor's cloak more than Jon. And LOL that Jon is tall. Nope. There is a guy she hits all of the tall, strong, protect, cloak, kiss, and much more notes with, however. Yeah, she runs right into him! And one by one he takes on everything she's been thinking about. Help me, she prayed, send me a friend, a true knight to champion me... Sansa found herself thinking of Lady again. She could smell out falsehood, she could... Home, she thought, home, he is going to take me home, he'll keep me safe, my Florian... Then he has Sansa run straight into Sandor: She was racing headlong down the serpentine steps when a man lurched out of a hidden doorway. Sansa caromed into him and lost her balance. Iron fingers caught her by the wrist before she could fall. And one by one, Sandor takes on each: "You like knights, don't you?... True knights..." "A dog can smell a lie, you know." "I never got my song... Florian and Jonquil?"
  4. Like this? Sansa on Sandor, the tall strong man in her story who repeatedly protects her (as she has noted many times): As the boy's lips touched her own she found herself thinking of another kiss. She could still remember how it felt, when his cruel mouth pressed down on her own. He had come to Sansa in the darkness as green fire filled the sky. He took a song and a kiss, and left me nothing but a bloody cloak. (also here, have a pic... http://www.georgerrmartin.com/grrm_fromfans/san-san-str) Sansa's match for Sansa: She had dreamed of her wedding a thousand times, and always she had pictured how her betrothed would stand behind her tall and strong, sweep the cloak of his protection over her shoulders, and tenderly kiss her cheek as he leaned forward to fasten the clasp. Lots more story where that came from...
  5. Oh yeah, Myrcella, too. That's another that will be hard. Yeah, I loved the name day scene in the books, he was very brave and good. Damn.
  6. Oh, GRRM, Tommen is going to be a hard death to read about. I always knew he was doomed because of what Maggy the Frog said, but still. He's just this very sweet victim of horrible people.
  7. Not saying I agree with everything (the Brienne and Pod stuff is off, he doesn't get all the character connections that will play out) but here's a "how to do it better" video (part 1 anyway):
  8. Yeah, the actors are the best part about the show. Now they can't even prepare properly because of the secrecy. GRRM recently said so what about spoilers, you see a classic adaptation and still enjoy it. I'd rather be spoiled.
  9. That's a big part of how they went astray. This huge swath of story between the north and the south is virtually gone except for killing Freys. It's like flyover country.
  10. He was the nicest person in the books. So he was doomed by default on the show.
  11. So basically they had trouble even writing a psycho villain.
  12. Odd they don't just get a military advisor to help with these plots.
  13. And this was another problem, that she'd not just take Kings Landing with Drogon.
  14. Yeah, that the wight hunt made it out of preliminary writers room discussions is amazing.
  15. Poor Tommen. He's still playing with his kittens in the books. Of course, he's doomed, but...
  16. I think they would have, they just ran out of time and opportunity.
  17. Golden Company casting, back to the book story in some way perhaps, or just more filler. http://www.syfy.com/syfywire/latest-game-of-thrones-casting-news-may-have-just-axed-this-fan-theory
  18. Oh he posted his season 7 reviews too. Not saying I agree with everything. But some good criticisms.
  19. Hiding out with his uncle, too. Luke doesn't get the girl, the rogue does (Han Solo). Anyway yeah Peter knows.
  20. Much better. Really points out how cutting Lady Stoneheart and most of the Riverlands story led to all sorts of problems.
  21. Yes he said he knows the ending back in 2014: http://uproxx.com/hitfix/x-men-star-peter-dinklage-knows-the-ending-to-game-of-thrones/
  22. Chill. Trust me, the world isn't going to end if jonerys is a bust. You know, after you shipped Sansa and Tyrion how that went. And after you shipped Sansa and Jon how that went. You were not concerned that Sansa is "damaged" when you shipped her with her brother. You survived your "meltdown" then said she doesn't have genitals and she must die. (added quotation marks)
  23. Repeat after me. These are fictional characters.
  24. You are projecting. That's what you have done for years. Everyone knows it. It's all over the forum, an endless stream of cruel comments to posters. "Triggered"? You just keep going there with the rape references. A rape victim told you her story and asked you to stop and you still keep it up. (added quotation marks)
  25. LOL "temper tantrum"! This is coming from the one who lashed out at Sansa fans so many times so aggressively over the years. The costume designer (who is suddenly the expert) clearly said: "It's a message to Littlefinger." As many have mentioned repeatedly. Also others have said stop with the harmful rape victims are "damaged" nonsense on this very thread as well as on other threads.
