  1. Yeah sorry about that, my mistake. I had him mixed up with Edric Dayne. Edric Storm is fine, he’ll live forever.
  2. Agreed. It’s a shame he’s being written out due to the time jump not happening.
  3. Satin is my favourite minor character. He’s got balls, is a loyal guy and I appreciate that he combs perfume into his beard. I don’t like Janos Slynt the man, but I like that he exists and he’s an excellent minor villain.
  4. They had a dad and a sister but they both got Gregor’d edit: grammar
  5. If there’s a repeat of the last hero legend, is it safe to assume Lady Stoneheart is one of the dozen companions?
  6. Both of those places are over 100 years old aren’t they? Either way I just realised that almost all of the castles have had major extensions over the years, which more or less explains it if you think of castles as though they were cities.
  7. A general paranoia is something I can get behind. It’s not perfect, I mean there really should be a lot more but lords not allowing construction for that reason is better than no explanation. You guys don’t think there’s a magical element at play here? I’m thinking about the black stone of ‘unknown origin’ that was used in the construction of the Hightower at old town, the five forts and other well known structures.
  8. Do you think that’s all it is? No one has had the funds or motivation to build anything in hundreds of years? IMO it’s something that needs an explanation. Look at a place like Dragonstone; that place is an architectural marvel and it was built before the doom, we’re talking over 400 years ago. Think about all the other amazing structures, basically every major castle is incredible, the Titan of Bravos, the wall, the effing Eyrie. None of it inspired anyone to build anything except Sansa who built a snow castle once.
  9. How come no one has built anything in forever? Everything is really old. Also, if songs are so important how has no one has written a hit since The Rains Of Castamere?
  10. Yeah that’s probably right, the mother would likely have helped. Maybe I’m being too hard on him, but it seems like a super dumb move, the Northerners would have planned for Balon refusing them and like surely this plan b wasn’t to have Theon start raiding villages along the stoney shore.
  11. Not bad points at all, Admittedly I hadn’t thought overly about Theons life as a ward/hostage and how that would mess with his head. At that point isn’t the story I would have considered Theon a Stark. He didn’t care much for the rest of the Starks but Robb was close to a brother to him and Theon was obviously a huge part of his rebellion. I just think he fell in with the Greyjoy’s way too easily, for dumb reasons and his plan to take winterfell was moronic.
  12. We all know about Theon switching sides when he’s sent by Robb to Pyke to bring the Greyjoy’s in on the Stark rebellion (aCoK). I’m doing another re read and after going through that whole process again (being unrecognised, then mocked, the stony shore and winterfell idiocracy), I couldn’t help but wonder how he could be so stupid. Thus, my “small” question is this; Was switching from Stark to Greyjoy like that the biggest fuck up/bad decision that any character has made so far? There have been plenty of bad decisions made, I might list a couple below, but I can at least understand why those people made the choices they did. Just what was Theon thinking? Other candidates that come to mind; - Cat freeing Jamie - Viserys’ tantrum during the golden crown feast - Cat arresting Tyrion - Ned letting Cersei know he knew about her and Jamie - Renly claiming the throne etc Back to Theon, can anyone tell me how he suddenly went from treating with the ironborn to allowing himself to be mocked into joining them and doing the actual opposite of what he was sent to do? It can’t just be the desire for approval from his “family”. As far as I can tell they never visited, wrote or otherwise enquired about his well-being after he was forcibly shipped off. They’re a bunch of shit heads. Why didn’t he, after that first conversation with Balon, simply turn around and go back to Robb?
  13. I don’t have anything constructive to add, other than a sincere well done. I like to think my ASOIAF knowledge is pretty hot, but then I read stuff like this and it reminds me that I know nothing.
  14. Right you are. In GRRM’s universe it won’t be allowed to happen though, surely. I still have faith.
  15. Lol. There’s no way those old bones should have come through. Everyone should have been sweet down there.
