    Aerys ii kingsgs guard

    Besides, is the current known Kingsguards really THAT bad? In so far, there's two mediocre knights (Boros Blount and Meryn Trant), one we don't really know much about (Preston Greenfield), another that was considered dangerous by the very Jaime fo'''kin' Lannister, former still very strong Barry Selmy, the florid but still competent Loras Tyrell, the dubious Kettleblack dude, who seems a phony, and the soon-to-be true knight Balon Swann. And Gregorstein, who since is not longer human doesn't count. So (-): Blount, Trant, Kettleblack. Kinda (+): Greenfield, Moore Decisively (+): Lannister, Selmy, Swann, Tyrell Alien: Strong

    Aerys ii kingsgs guard

    It is a brotherhood sworn to the Iron Throne & who sits on it. To me, the fact that *most* of them stood by a corrupt king until the end actually speaks better for the lot. They are not partisans, nor lords, nor counselors. They are sworn to protect the monarch.

    Was Jaime molesting Cersei?

    The OP's text implies Jaime was persistant. It's not the same as molesting.

    Who is Quaithe?

    I think Quaithe is like the random doom prophecy ol' guy from the random horror movie. Y'know, like this one;

    Strangest Possible Ending

    That AsoIaF was actually connected to the 1000 worlds and, uh, the Others are actually Hrangans or something, trapped in some icy wasteland by Earth Imperials in a planet that subsequently reversed to medieval tech.

    Minor characters you wanna see lose and why?

    Margaery and Loras Tyrell. Because I want to destroy something beautiful.

    Poll. Is Bran ever leaving the cave?

    I don't think so. Not as long as winter is on. Bran is currently very far away from settlements, even the free folk is mostly travelling south. He's got a fading company with him and Bloodraven has not given any strong clue about returning. I think Bran will entangle himself with the Blooravenpedia and stay there until the end.

    Puns and Wordplay

    I was listening to a POV in audiobook format and I noticed a name I had hard time relating to my previous reads. Sarella. Sarella's is pronounced almost the same as 'ciruela', a spanish word for a plum, which obviously led me to the Plumms which are fond of characters playing double agents. Also, Sarella's mother worked or was a captain of a ship called 'Feathered Kiss'. Feathered, again, in spanish is 'Beso Emplumado'. Now again, Ben Plumm ancestry feels like a chimera. Or even a sphinx. A little of these, a little of that. Probably just wild coincidence. But the wordplay, if it was intentional, is actually awesome.

    The Drunk Thread: Just Look at the Flowers

    Haha. There should be a 'sobering up dudes and gals' thread as well. I've been 3 weeks and 5 days (as of today) sober and it's my second longest time like this in about 10 years. I won't deny that I need some beers.
