  1. Omnievul added a post in a topic Which scene inspired the TV show? - SPOILERS   

    I had read the same thing as well, and after having read ASOS I actually believe that said scene is either the Red Wedding, as the people before me said, or, surprisingly, the duel between The Hound and Beric Dondarrion. It may not have been the most significant event plot-wise, but it was a fantastic and very intense scene. I've read a lot of fantasy books, and this particular scene instantly became one of my favourite scenes in a book. Everything about it was full of awe. The huge fire burning in the midst of the cave, all the men around the fire looking at the duel without interfering, Lord Beric's first appearance, his fire sword, The Hound's battle against his very fear, the duel itself and how it escalated, all the while the fire casting huge shadows of the duelists over the wall caves, and to top it all the climactic ending of Beric's return from the dead. I don't know about the rest of the readers, but for me it was just breathtakingly epic. I can also imagine that it would make a spectacular scene in the series.

    But I guess that is just wishful thinking and personal point of view, and that the scene is actually the Red Wedding.
  2. Omnievul added a post in a topic Favourite Tyrion Lannister line yet? {SPOILERS}   

    “Lord Littlefinger.” Podrick managed a quick look at his face, then hastily dropped his eyes. “I meant, Lord Petyr. Lord Baelish. The master of coin. “
    “You make him sound a crowd."

    I was also in public when I read that line and I felt really awkward because I was laughing like an idiot by myself.
  3. Omnievul added a topic in Wiki of Ice and Fire   

    Arstan Whitebeard redirection
    Greetings everyone! Before starting, I'd like to warn everyone that this thread will contain spoilers for anyone who has not read the third book, so please do not read on if you have not.

    I have never been on this forum before, I just made an account so I can voice a suggestion / complaint I had. I believe that it's a very bad idea to have Arstan Whitebeard redirect to Barristan Selmy. I believe I am not the only one who likes browsing google for portraits of the characters in the book, and it so happens that a wiki of ice and fire is always either the first or the second result, so I guess that people would eventually refer to this wiki. I'm pretty sure a lot of other people, including myself, have had Arstan's true identity spoiled by this redirection, and I think it's too much of a nice and important plot-wise surprise to have it spoiled. Perhaps a moderator could create a separate page for Arstan Whitebeard?
    Thank you for your time and for any replies.

    PS: At least I was lucky and I got it spoiled 1 chapter before the revelation. Imagine someone else knowing all along, that would be horrible!
