    Heresy 230 and die Herren von Winterfell

    Martell, Arryn and Lannister?

    Got a chuckle out of this, but in a way it feels almost related... https://www.tor.com/2019/12/24/i-cthulu-neil-gaiman/

    Lol. Sounds like she wanted to leave you with a laugh to remember her by. I had a dream years ago in which one of our Heresy members was actually wearing a green and orange plaid suit ( I think it was) so I can have a little extra chuckle. I’m glad she left you with positive memories. :))

    @LynnS, I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. I know that you’ve always seemed close. Positive thoughts headed your way.

    Because the maester’s mostly, and the Septons certainly, don’t want people to realize that magic exists. Personal favorite head cannon is that all of these sights are the equivalent of the magical variation of a nuke blast radius. A result with its overuse in unethical manners. ie the abominations.

    Could turn into a talking wolf too. Don’t forget about that one.

    Ok. So thinking on this, something just dawned on me... I’ve always tried to relate this to magic too, but what if it’s actually Just another representation of the “Seven?” Mother, Maiden, Crone, Warrior, Smith, and Father. The seventh remains nameless as it is Death. I keep getting stuck on Septa Lemore. I mean it’s pretty clear that she is in hiding and not an actual current Septa. Not to mention the name “Lemore.” It is reminiscent of both l’amore and l’amorte. And Septa is 7. Is she the 7th love? Of who? Or Presumed dead? Representing the Stranger? It seems that we se several instances of parties of 6 with one person of the opposite sex noted. The six kings sent by Queen Nym, the six washerwomen and Abel.

    Good. I’m glad. Sometimes I do forget how much I appreciate your direct approach. I need to remember that I tend to sound pretty abrasive myself at times. It’s just nice to actually be able to solve issues through communication rather than making them worse. I still feel badly about how out of hand things did get with the arguments a few years back. I know I took out a bunch of unearned hostility on you. Luckily you have managed to take it all in good grace.

    Honestly, I have had some bad experiences both here and elsewhere with people using private conversations, of both myself and others against to increase conflict and involve others, especially in relation to these forums. Although I believe that I again owe you an apology. You are one of the people around here who’s private conversations actually REMAIN private. I need to remember to look at the person and not the experience sometimes. I do understand that a lot of this stuff is ancient history for some, but I’ve had some reasons to reflect on my forum related experiences lately and some of it still feels quite raw and personal to me. I mean, the guy who was for all practical purposes my best friend at the time, that I talked to for hours daily, and shared some quite personal information with turned out to be his own wife? That isn’t normal.

    No. You haven’t treated me unfairly, but I did feel as if Corbon had been treated unfairly yesterday. Him stating his opinion was no more offensive than any of the rest of us doing the same, yet it was treated differently. I will say that I was a bit frustrated last night with the conversation that we all were having seeming to turn back into the exact same argument as always when I was attempting to explore things from a different angle. That was exasperated by some personal frustrations as well. I try not to take out real life frustration here, but it does spill over at times. (And can also make minor annoyances feel much larger then they actually are.) I do apologize if I offended you. That was certainly not my intent.

    Because not everyone has moved on from it. You only say that you have. The every action of every poster on this forum is still colored by the perceptions that have been left behind. And several people have been responsible for harming others on an actual personal level yet have denied any responsibility for their own actions. People are people, whether online or in life and should always be treated and respected as such. For that matter I’m getting messages from you for being offended by my attempt to diffuse my own frustration through humor. Yet instead of that it’s seen as a personal attack and meant to cause you personal harm through doxing you. FFS. You have gone by the forum name Melisandre. It’s how you got your current name.... a combo of that and Feather Crystal. Sandy was just shorter than Melisandre. Why must you all see intended harm in everything that is done?

    There’s nothing wrong with having opinions. We all do. What is wrong is when you completely disregard the opinions of others in favor of your own, despite contrary evidence and without respect. I understand that others have not always been respectful towards you, but it doesn’t mean that you need to turn around and do the same to others. I understand that it may not be intentional, but it is the way that it is perceived. And unfortunately perception is the majority of most people’s reality. For example, it does you no favors to continue to insist on an idea as being fact without being properly able to defend it, or being unwilling to listen to the constructive criticism of others without seeing it as a slight. Other people like to have their opinions respected as well. And many have gone through substantial effort, just like you, to supply quotes and counter evidence that is summarily dismissed. It can be very frustrating to be on the other side of that.

    @LynnS And @alienarea (I’m just tagging the two of you because this is in direct response to both of your comments, not to direct it at you personally.) But....No. it all (the drama) started here on Westeros as far as I know, and always looped back through. I wasn’t around for the first part of it, but I managed to get dragged into it somewhere along the line by those who were involved. There was drama in this community well before I got here, and I’m sure it will remain long after I’m gone. It’s like there’s a mental block in people’s minds that doesn’t allow them to consider any perspective other than their own, both in book and personal related matters (for those of us who had become closer friends.) The issues and splits that I’m aware of are pretty much all from within Heresy and the numerous “splinter forums“ that it’s members have formed. First there was Sable Hall. It blew up spectacularly from my understanding, but I had missed that forum incarnation. I got sucked into the drama at The Last Hearth when the updates to Westeros delayed the posting of the Heresy XYJ Parentage Project. Mojo and WeaselPie had some crazy fight for control of the site that resulted in the eventual split off and formation of the House of Black and White. When I tried to remain neutral and keep friends on both sides, I was accused of being a spy by BOTH sides and summarily kicked from everywhere. About the only person that had it even worse was the group’s attempted peacemaker. He’s probably one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met yet he got turned into the root of all evil all while having his own privacy invaded. If Mojo ever sends and of the rest of you all screenshots of anything... delete them and run!!! @The Snowfyre Chorus

    Yeah. I was never brave enough to do more than either just the tips, and a couple times foiled highlights. I think they were just fine purple highlights. Didn’t stay in for long though.

    Some days I’m really not sure I care a whole lot about any of it anymore. In a way, we already got our answer with the show, even though I’m sure there will be substantial differences throughout. That’s not even mentioning all of the craziness in interpersonal and forum relationships that occurred a couple years back now. I don’t know about you, but it cost me multiple people that I had thought of as friends over a couple year period. I’m still not really entirely over it all. The stupid feuds and dueling forums. The disrespectful attitudes. The personal attacks. The multiple accounts that nobody admitted to and used proxies for. People pretending to be anyone other than themselves, including their own spouse. Everyone trying to point fingers and argue over who’s behavior was worse when all of us were being stupid, trying to control who got to be friends with whom. Blanket bans over stupidity. Public arguments on help forums. Not to mention hours, days, weeks, months of time wasted trying to put the puzzle pieces together to figure out what in the world actually happened. And ya know what? I still have no idea.
