Hedge Knight (5/8)

  1.     I searched, but I couldn't find them. I feel really stupid about it, but could you please post a link to these essays?
  2. 1. You can't marry into royal family. You can only be born into royal family. which is why she kept her surname. You can't get a royal surname with marriage.   2. Robert is an usurper. Yes, his rebellion was legit (if you ask me, some posters believe it was not), but it was still a rebellion and he is still a usurper. A question of Dany's claim is very complicated. Robert became king, because his grand mother was a Targaryen (like Dany). His claim comes from the same family as Dany's claim. Before the rebellion Robert was 5th in line for the throne. His legitimacy is build on the fact that he was a cousin of king Aerys II. So if Stannis and Shireen dies, the crown goes to his closest family-Aegon Targaryen (in show it is Dany(and Jon)). They 'forgot' to mention in the show that they are related :)   If you ask Targaryen loyalist, Robert is an usurper and just like John Locke said: 'We might regard conquest as a kind of foreign usurpation of power and usurpation as a kind of domestic political conquest. However there is a major difference between the two in that some conquests may be just and lawful, usurpers can never have right on their side.' So Robert was never a lawful king.   Some say that Targaryens lost their claim entirely and that if Stannis and Shireen  die claim to the throne possibly goes to Edric Storm (or some other Targaryen relatives). Edric Storm is the only recognised bastard son of Robert. Gendry is not recognised, so he can't be in line for a throne. Edric Storm also can't be line for the throne, because he is still a bastard. And you have to legitimize a bastard (a bastard can't sit the Iron Throne without royal legitimization).     3. Littlefinger is a mystery. 
  3. Do D&D know how many problems this season had? GRRM is spammed with angry fan mail (which don’t get me wrong I don't approve), but how about D&D? Maybe they think that season 5 was their best season? viewership and ratings were high...
  4. Do you have a link or SSM? I can't remember reading this
  5. Exactly, in first season they had GRRM and Jane Espenson, (and Bryan Cogman), now they have Dave Hill-Sons of the harpy was his first screenplay. He started as assistant, and he got a job as a writer because he suggested Olly should kill Ygritte.
  6. There was a lot of ‘Dany will go mad’ exposition in this episode. Tyrion said that Targs are known to be insane, he said Aerys burned people for fun which is a parallel to what Dany did in last episode. D&D are trying very hard to make us like Stannis and hate Dany. And Cersei is not 'mad' in show, so 'mad queen' would be something new. I don’t want to believe this will happen, but it seems they are going in this direction. As to Sansa...A lot of unsullied love GoT because of shock. We don’t have all those things that made us like ASOIAF in show. So D&D have to do shock >substance to keep ratings up. Most of my unsullied friends were looking forward to each new season, because they always hoped that Dany will came to Westeros or that Others will invade. They think that’s the main point of the show. And since Dany is still in Meereen and Others are still gods know where, they need shock-well, at least that is what I think D&D are thinking. They made shock >substance into show trademark. And it’s sick. What they did to Sansa…that was our fifth rape so far?
  7. Thanks everyone! I’m from Slovenia and I haven't written in English since high school, so it might take me a while to get used to it again :) And my favorite POVs are Jon and Eddard, but otherwise i'm fascinated with Targaryens :)
  8. Tnx! :) And as long as it’s not death by burning, I’m fine :)
  9. Hello everyone! i started reading ASOIAF around 2005, but i was just a casual reader. But I just started rereading books and now I’m all in :) I struggle a bit with writing in english, so I hope you are not too strict with grammar here :blushing:
