    Least favourite POV character per book

    I'm reading Feast now and honestly, the Brienne chapters are so boring. They're a bit "cozy" in a way, which was the case with Arya's wandering in the Riverlands all through Clash and Storm as well, but it's nowhere near as interesting or nice to read them. I think it could possibly be - at least to a certain degree - that I've been affected by everyone else saying that Feast is "just Brienne wandering around endlessly in the Riverlands" and therefore have a negative starting point but honestly, they aren't that good anyway. I think there are several reasons why Brienne's chapters are considered to be among the most boring: First of all, she's not really involved in any major player action until she meets the Brotherhood without Banners and Lady Stoneheart. She's not an important lord or lady in Westeros, like all the characters from Great Houses are, she's got no ambitions for the throne nor is she close to anyone who does. Her plotline is mostly pointless in the grand scheme of things unless you think that she's really going to find Sansa, and even then it takes her a super long time to do so so it's not necessarily worth it. She has a connection to Catelyn, Jaime and Sansa etc but the thing is that nothing related to that happens for like half the book so it's not interesting. Mostly it's just descriptions of smallfolk and soldier pines and the countryside around the Riverlands over and over again. That's the thing: Brienne's storyline doesn't pay off until the end of Feast, so she should definitely have had at least one or two chapters fewer. Also, while her character is definitely honourable, extremely strong - both physically and mentally - and noble etc, she's not the typical charismatic character. She doesn't have a "wonder child" thing like Bran, Arya or Daenerys, nor is she politically active or anything. Mostly she just thinks about having to do her duty or having been slighted or whatever. She is interesting in being a strong woman in Westeros, of course, and also her relationship to Jaime is interesting, plus her arc gives us a good world-building view of the Riverlands, but she mostly doesn't do or say anything really special, she doesn't have any great aspirations or dreams (except being a knight of course but it almost seems like she's given up on that as she lost Renly and now only has the promise to Catelyn to think about) and no great mysteries or prophecies surrounding her. Unfortunately, she's just much more boring and stiff than the other characters. And unlike Stannis, she doesn't have any gritty, teeth-grinding black humour to make up for it.

    The Vanishing Uncles of Westeros

    The Ice Dragon is not set in Westeros, GRRM has refuted that in Not A Blog (Although of course I understand that it still could be important and the worlds of the stories are very similar). https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/The_Ice_Dragon#cite_note-5 ... Euron was "missing" when he was in exile (obvious but yeah) and there might be others as well

  5. Me neither, yet if I'm not wrong it's not allowed to post joke threads that are just nonsense. I might be wrong, but I think that people have had their threads removed for lacking substance or meaning before, so I just want to make sure whether this thread is just a joke/nonsense thread or whether it has some meaning. If it's just a nonsense thread and if there is a rule or guidelines against those, I expect the moderators to do their work.
  6. I know that, but I am wondering what the theory is and what it is based on. What do you mean? Do you mean that the Snarks invented the Common Tongue and then taught it to the humans of Westeros? If so, why do you believe this? Is there any evidence for it, or anything suggesting that it could be true? And why would specifically Damphair and Victarion be speaking another language? Surely, if Damphair and Victarion speak another language, Asha would do that as well (and all the other Ironborn characters). She is also Ironborn, and logically people of the same region would speak the same language. Besides, I have never read anything suggesting that the Ironborn speak a different language than the Common Tongue.
  7. What are you all talking about???

    Wed, Bed, Kill

    Wed Kevan 'cuz he's a reliable, good man and I would be close to Tywin and Jaime, Cersei and Tyrion and see everything that's happening with them Bed Gerion 'cuz he seems cool and adventurous and I see him as handsome when I imagine him (#nohomo) Kill Tygett 'cuz I unfortunately like him the least, don't like his name and mostly just know that he was quite angry and aggressive Cersei Lannister, Melisandre, Asha Greyjoy

    Origins of the coat of arms of House Payne

    Are you serious? I thought it was completely obvious that it had to do with Tysha and her rape with the payment in coppers and/or gold coins. It's not necessarily that, but that was my first thought and it would make sense because Podrick being assigned as Tyrion's squire would be even more of a slight by Tywin then, to make Tyrion remember the Tysha incident.

    The Red Wedding "Omens?"

    I can't answer your question but when Arya and the Hound are travelling toward the Twins, the chapter ends with the Hound saying something like "maybe we'll even be in time for your uncle's bloody wedding", and the next chapter ending with him saying something like "It's your bloody brother I want", which is very foreboding in hindsight.
  12. Well yes, you are right in that. My consideration of Ned as the best fighter was mostly based on the fact that he was able to kill Arthur Dayne (and even with the help of Howland, his battle at the Tower of Joy is impressive), and I know that otherwise he was not the second greatest fighter of the rebels
  13. Their friendship seems like the ultimate, perfect friendship combination since they're both the ultimate, perfect men: tall, strong, beautiful, heroic, honourable, highborn with Valyrian descent/features, completely masterful at fighting - the very best in all of Westeros - etc. (Rhaegar defeats Arthur during the tourney at Harrenhal since they are both so alike and equal in skill; they are both basically the only match for each other and way above almost everyone else) They are both basically Demi-Gods and since they both die heroic deaths, their legacies both become further enshrined in mystery and glory to the point of reaching the heights of complete legend after their deaths. The only thing about it is the fact that therefore, it is almost TOO PERFECT to seem normal/realistic/to be at all. They are almost TOO ALIKE EACH OTHER and it feels like every social circle/generation/kingdom/court only ever "deserves"/has one of those men. Maybe GRRM subconsciously invented the same character twice and didn't notice at first. Anyway, I never remember that they were friends in that way since I always imagine them distinctly placed out at different places in my mind-map of Westeros, Arthur Dayne constantly standing vigil at the Tower of Joy since that's his famous moment, and Rhaegar either at home in King's Landing, at the Harrenhal Tourney, the Isle of Faces, or at the Ruby Ford. ... OMG, I LITERALLY JUST REALISED SOMETHING TRULY INCREDIBLE: One was killed by Robert and the other by Ned!!!! The two best friends, best fighters and most important leaders of the loyalist side killed by the two best friends, best fighters and most important leaders of the rebel side! How does that coincidence even happen??? And how come noone has thought about that, commented on that or made a theory about it (at least that I have seen), neither the characters themselves nor the readers? Right???

    Coldhands is secretly...

    Coldhands is secretly the "piece of fluff for an elephant" referenced by Eddie Izzard in his 1999 standup show "Definite Article"
  15. Well yeah, obviously it's just a random smallfolk rumour, like all the others and we all know that it's not true but the smallfolk believe everything. Anyway, I stand by my belief that this woman might have been the woman called Tansy that the maester spoke of, and therefore possibly Hoster's old mistress or bastard daughter or something
