Ygritte and Jon

17 posts in this topic

Am I the only one getting annoyed with Ygritte, just a tad? The first couple "You know nothing Jon Snow"'s were amusing, but now it seems as if it's used on every other page. Drinking game anyone?

Welcome to the forums, first off.

And no, I can't say that I ever got tired of Ygritte. She definitely ranks highly in my Top Female Characters List.

"You know nothing, Jon Snow"

Oh maaaan, that hit home towards the end of Jon's chapters. Yeah, it's a little redundant but I think there is plenty of meaning behind those words.

wasn't it because of the wild look?

Cant remember exactly what he was thinking. Do you have an example?

Welcome!

Just a tad. I like her a lot. She does get repetitive. I always kind of imagined that English (Westerosi?) is not her first language, so I cut her some slack.

I like her a lot too. I think you should cut her some slack. She's one of those characters that are actually tough. Hell, she trapped Jon and captured him.

Then she seduces him. She dies in Jon's arms. <------- Okay, that was the saddest part of SoS besides RW.

I found "You know nothing Jon Snow" the most irritating thing about the books. By the 30th time I almost through my Kindle out the window.

Actually, I think every time she sends it, there is a different meaning behind it. The suggestion behind: "You know nothing" is of course that she knew something more than he did, and every time it's a different aspect that she thinks she can teach him. I think it adds a lot of depth to her character. Even her last "You know nothing"s are, whether irritating or not, quite telling.

Cheers to all,

Thyrza

I was looking through this forum, just because and I was aggravated about GillyTarly's post as it has ruined Jon's storyline for me a bit. It is my second favourite storyline and due to their post I now know what is going to happen between them, Thanks(!).

The whole Westeros speaks the same language, except the Old Tongue and the thing that the Thenn men speak I think. I always found that a bit strange, though. Anyway, the wildlings speak the Common tongue like the people south of the Wall, otherwise Jon would probably have to learn it from Ygritte.

I just reported that. I am sorry you were spoiled. :( The "Still Reading" parts are usually spoiler-free, but maybe it is better not to read anything on the internet until you have read all the books.

Please remember that in the still reading section of the forum you must use spoiler tags.

Thank You.

ADWD Spoiler:

Dat moment when Melisandre said "You know nothing, Jon Snow"..

This was awesome! I was upset because I expected something to come of it but in the next chapter there was no mention.

Another ADWD spoiler:

I thought there was maybe some connection between Melisandre and Ygritte but more likely she just saw it in her fires. Not far into the book though so hopefully something can still come of it.

I agree Thyrza. At first I was thinking, OK, we get it. But, Jon didn't get it. He needed to hear it and I do think each time was w/different meaning.
