    I don't have a specific genre as I'm not very picky. I prefer books within the spectrum of fiction.

  1. On the way through the hidden passages Tyrion discovers the secret entrance to his former residence, the Tower of the Hand. Varys warns him not to go that way, but of course Tyrion goes. We all know that he murders Shae and Tywin. But my main question is this, did Varys lead Tyrion past the hidden entrance to allude to murdering Tywin? Also, where did Varys flee to after delivering Tyrion to the docks? I've heard little theories that say Varys is hiding below King's Landing. It makes sense because that's where Arya accidentally overhears and sees Illyrio and Varys playing the game of thrones. Varys is also revealed to assassinate Kevan and it mentions him coming from below ground. Where is Varys actually hiding at?
  2. Tyrion and Petyr

    Hmmm. I always figured it would be Sansa once she fully realizes what role Petyr played in her father's death. Especially after Littlefinger teaches her everything she needs to know about the game of thrones.
  3. Fave moment in AFFC?

    Another of Cersei's chapters I find amusing is when she allows the Warrior's Sons to be recognized by the crown. I'm paraphrasing here but she says something along the lines of "my father would be proud if he could see me now.' I was humiliated for her at that specific moment!
  4. Fave moment in AFFC?

    My favorite moment was when Brienne and Podrick run into septon Meribald and he gives the broken men speech. It was quite moving. Another moment I enjoyed reading of (it seems to be a common favorite) is Cersei acting as Queen Regent. She becomes so paranoid, foolish and arrogant that she does all the wrong things. I found it especially comical when she gives Aurane Waters the title of master of ships. Once Cersei is arrested Waters just takes off with the dromonds.
  5. Most unintelligent character in the series?

    I never thought of Cersei as smart or dumb. She appears to have an average intellect. But like I said earlier, she is pretentious and obviously conceited. When she looks at Jaime she is attracted to him (because he looks like her) and envious of him too simply because she wants to be man. She understands that she lives in a patriarchal society and detests being married off. She hates men yet at the same time she wants to be one.
  6. Most unintelligent character in the series?

    Cersei eventually lets her paranoia get the best of her. Her POV chapters in Feast are my favorite. Her paranoia and emotional instability worsen the further in to Feast you go. Cersei is already pretentious enough when she's introduced in the first book. When she expels Mace Tyrell from the small council she just makes things even worse for herself.
  7. Most unintelligent character in the series?

    I have a feeling that Sansa is going to find out about many of Littlefinger's schemes and conspiracies. She was utterly played by him in so many ways.
  8. The character that I had the strongest convictions and judgments of ended up changing drastically once I completed aSoS. That character is Jaime Lannister. Once he became a POV character I assumed that I'd grow to hate him. At first read I simply just tolerated his POV chapters. I gradually started to understand why Jaime was the way he was. He was a man that was misunderstood and he'd made many bad choices in life. Other than being known as one of the finest warriors in Westeros, he is also notorious for murdering Aerys II Targaryen. It wasn't until after Jaime confessed what happened in King's Landing and why he felt he had to kill Aerys II that my perspective on Jaime changed dramatically. After getting to know his father Tywin and his sister Cersei's true nature I understood even more (and sympathized) why Jaime ended up the way he did.
  9. Which characters of the series can be regarded as introverted?

    I know he no longer has a tongue but I believe Ser Illyn Payne to be particularly introverted, even if he is forcibly that way. Podrick Payne is very shy, withdrawn and reticent. Brienne is quiet as well.
  10. Most unintelligent character in the series?

    One POV character in particular I thought was incredibly stupid and I really disliked her on my first read of the series, Sansa Stark. After reading the books for a second time my opinion of her changed. What made me dislike her at first was when she lied to cover for Joffrey after he antagonizes Arya and the butcher's boy and as a result of that Cersei has Lady killed in place of Nymeria. After Ned informs her and Arya of his plan to flee from King's Landing, she rushes to Cersei and tells of her father's intent. Once she did that I truly despised Sansa. But like I said after my second read through of the series I then realized my judgement of Sansa was too critical and harsh. She is a lord's daughter who has been sheltered all her life and she's very innocent, naive and gullible. Not to mention that she has quite a bit of compassion and sympathy for others. I also like that she is beginning to learn how to play the "game of thrones" from Littlefinger. She's no longer the played, but the player.
  11. So who would you bend the knee to?

    I would bend the knee to Stannis if I had to choose between those seven. By "law" Stannis is supposed to inherit the Iron Throne, he is Robert's successor. Stannis doesn't harbor any of the madness that Dany does. Robb is a great war leader and warrior but he's not politically cunning and is clueless when it comes to playing the game of thrones (in that he is very similar to Ned). Balon Greyjoy is too ethnocentric and close minded to rule all of Westeros. If he conquered all of Westeros he would establish the Old Way everywhere he possibly could. Yes I agree he's a fantastic naval strategist and commander, but he's too narrow minded and he has almost no diplomacy.
  12. Most unintelligent character in the series?

    Oh yeah! I totally forgot about Mord as a character. I would say he's second in line for the dumbest person in Westeros.
  13. Most unintelligent character in the series?

    Victarion is a big dumb brute who is better at taking commands from his brothers, especially Balon. I couldn't help but feel ashamed for the maester Kerwin when he was raped by four of Victarion's sailors. I don't know why but I laughed when I came to the part where Victarion throws his corpse overboard.
  14. I was thinking about who the most unintelligent character is in the series is (in all of Planetos) and I'm still trying to narrow it down. I'm not including Hodor on the list because he is the most obvious first choice. Patchface I don't consider the dumbest either because even though his mind and body are broken, he wasn't born that way. In aCoK it's mentioned that Patchface is nimble and witty, but after Windproud (Steffon Baratheon's two-masted galley) is shipwrecked on the way to Storm's End he is found days later, his mind and body broken. Since he is only able to spout prophecy I do find him somewhat dim. Many of the jesters and fools in a Song of Ice and Fire can be considered actual simpletons with IQs bordering on mental retardation. Some of them are just misfits or weirdos though. Take Shagwell of the Brave Companions for instance. I don't think he is unintelligent, just a psychotic psychopath. Moon Boy, a fool, is seen by others in King's Landing as another simpleton. Dontos Hollard says that he doesn't think Moon Boy is actually simple though and that he is probably faking it. Then there's Lollys Stokeworth. Lollys is obviously simple-minded but she can still function at a low level and she can hold a conversation. So after really putting thought into who the stupidest character in the series is I've come to the conclusion that Jinglebell (Aegon Frey) is by far the slowest character. Catelyn witnesses him drooling out of the mouth and jumping up and down to music at the Red Wedding, he is not able to speak either.
  15. I definitely want to know more about Howland Reed. Isn't there a theory out there that Jojen Reed is actually Howland Reed?
