    Let's speculate about Illyrio's chests

    Do we have textual evidence that the square-cut rubies came from the chest, or that Aegon had not been wearing it previously? As some have pointed out, these rubies are strongly associated with glamours (Stannis' "Lightbringer" and Mance's Rattleshirt disguise). The ruby choker makes very little sense as a glamour if Aegon put it on recently.

    Jon is a hypocrite

    At least he knows what “hypocrite” means.

    I guess I was written poorly.

    It’s not in my arc to explain these things.

    There’s a new one. How did Ned need to die to fulfill his arc with respect to RR? Or Catelyn or Robb? maybe the problem is that you think there’s something called an arc that’s different from the things that the characters do.

    I see little point in elaborating on rhetorical nonsense intended to respond to your nonsense, but in any case: Jaime’s arc was to seal victory in RR and save the people, paradoxically becoming infamous for his most valorous action. I love the word arc. I feel ever so smart when I use it.

    This is a fun game. Jaime's death also was central to his role in RR.

    Because people who are hard of thinking continually make specious criticisms in a condescending manner.

    I’ll try once more. But this is the last time. Eddard and many other characters died after failing miserably. He didn’t succeed in his arc. Likewise, Jaime failed in his arc and died before he successfully fulfilled it. And it’s utterly circular to say in response to this that earlier characters’ arcs were fulfilled because they died, so jaime’s was poorly done.

    You actually think this makes sense, don't you? I'm out.

    His story arc was completed with a brutal, tragic defeat of all of his schemes and plans and the extinguishment of his entire future. Just like numerous other characters throughout the story.

    Can you prove he wasn't important in chapter 5 of GOT?

    He was a main character and then he died, despite being brave, admirable, just, and strong, among other things. If you retroactively say that means he wasn't a main character, you are making a completely circular argument.

    First, you have no evidence that they stopped, or that others' did. Second, where the entries start, in addition to contradicting your claim that the entries only address actions while serving on the KG, gives us some information about what the purpose is, and where they would naturally stop. The purpose is to provide an account of who was on the KG and the noteworthy things they did in their lives. And yes, it would be completely natural to note, for example, that Lucamore was ultimately slain in battle against some king beyond the wall. Yet again, you have no shred of evidence to support he idea that you wouldn't. There's no law, no rules about the entries, no other bit of information, except the examples I've provided from the very few entries of which we have any evidence. You've just made something up in your head to manufacture a complaint.
