About Me

"When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser." - maybe Socrates

I BLAME AUTOCORRECT!

I'm an artist first, a whiskey-lover second, a dirty mouth with feet, and a girl last time I checked.

 The comic books are not canon, as clarified by GRRM.

Jon & Rhaegar comparison  Nymeria the woman Returns  My time with GRRM at Balticon & that outline

Val & Jon's resurrection, by bemused  Medieval People can survive stabbings

Watching Benioff & Weiss fanfiction is like watching a symphony that is being directed by two air-guitar dudes.

Bran as Pinocchio theory- confirmed on the sly   First Born Targ/Non-Targ children- confirmed on the sly

Explanation for the Black Gate???

The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.

George loves his comics! https://m.imgur.com/a/WckGf#dkCMAjg

The phrase is not just, "blood is thicker than water." The full phrase is actually, "blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb." It means that relationships made by choice are stronger than the ones made at birth (no choice).

George says HE IS NOT LIKE TOLKIEN video here...

He prefers Jack Vance, and magic is increasing in the series here...

But sometimes also, the story goes in unexpected directions, and it turns out to be much more interesting than the way that I originally envisioned it going. So sometimes it does make sense to follow that muse where it goes, but you never know until you try it. And that's what I'm doing.http://www.austinchronicle.com/daily/books/2013-08-29/lonestarcon-3-the-george-r-r-martin-interview/

SSM Search engine site... like a cold Popsicle on a hot summer's day.

Q: Some people want a happy ending. A:"Some people like to eat at McDonald's." GRRM :lol:

George confirms character growth/importance (at 19:30 mark) http://www.westeros.org/Citadel/SSM/Entry/FIL_Guadalajara_Press_Conference

"Minor characters sometimes don't stay minor" Here.

The World Book is purposely full of errrors. So says Martin. "George pointed out that even in the age of the books these were long-distant times with little in the way of accurate information." And Martin again.

And, according to some, GRRM is not to be trusted with his words here.

Greenseeing is going north of the wall, and in the trees here.

What GRRM says about the horn here, and then Sam still has the horn here.

Is Tormund the horn of winter??? Here.

The well at Nightfort is.... here

Lyanna and Howland are both the Knight of the Laughing Tree... here.

Sam is the new Brandon Ice Eyes? here

The Great Other is probably based on the Illitid from role playing games, a fav George pastime. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illithid

What George says about the building of the wall http://www.westeros.org/Citadel/SSM/Entry/The_Wall

Summerhall and the Pandemonium, Paradise Lost connection

"The seasons are "completely fantasy based". There's no sci-fi type element to it at all." http://www.westeros.org/Citadel/SSM/Entry/To_Be_Continued_Chicago_IL_May_6_8/

Yes, there are plenty of moral, ethical, physical and mental health negatives to incest. Read here, and don't forget to check out the comments :lol:

George saves "reveal" information for later, dragon warging, and the D&D do not know everything. Video Link here.

George talking about religions of Westeros and use of real world myths, such as Norse, to develop them. Video link here.

Brynden Bloodraven Rivers is a Hypnos/Thanatos combo. Read here.

Bran already turning into a tree? Read here. <--- This thread has been archived. The discussion is carrying on here with updates.

The concept of the free folk and Jon. Here or Here.

"only a =king= can legitimize a bastard......" About Robb's will and Jon. Here.

Bastards as a negative are Andal influence here

George speaks in Mexico, December 2016, about his next books, what Mel sees in the flames, etc.

 

Hahahahaa, The Double D's never read past the Red Wedding and did not know Sam was a POV character...:lmao:

Benioff: We’ve had a lot of conversations with George, and he makes a lot of stuff up as he’s writing it. Even while we talk to him about the ending, it doesn’t mean that that ending that he has currently conceived is going to be the ending when he eventually writes it.

Weiss: He figures a lot of this stuff as he goes. He always says he’s a gardener, not an architect. http://variety.com/2015/tv/news/game-of-thrones-ending-season-5-producers-interview-1201469516/

WINDS will be different in some ways, but will parallel the show in others. At this point, there are probably a dozen characters who are dead on the show but alive in the books, so it would be impossible for the two to remain the same. (Also, of course, there are characters in the books who have never even existed on the show, like Victarion Greyjoy, Jon Connington, Penny, Arianne Martell... ) http://grrm.livejournal.com/541795.html?thread=26242403#t26242403

Dictionary.com:

Usurpation 

noun

1. an act of usurping; wrongful or illegal encroachment, infringement, or seizure.

2. illegal seizure and occupation of a throne.

Conquer

verb (used with object)

1. to acquire by force of arms; win in war: to conquer a foreign land.

2. to overcome by force; subdue: to conquer an enemy.

3. to gain, win, or obtain by effort, personal appeal, etc.: conquer the hearts of his audience.

4. to gain a victory over; surmount; master; overcome: to conquer disease and poverty; to conquer one's fear.

Aegon I laid claim to all of Westeros when he had zero claim to any of it, and took over the land on top of a dragon. He retroactively claimed right of conquest. Usurper and conqueror. He had taken the 7 kingdoms from 7 rightful kings, and said that now he is top dog.

Robery I, after Aerys II broke the feudal contract with him and gave him every right to wage war against an unjust king (crown prince took his soon to be wife, the king murders lords and sends for Robert's head though he has done nothing wrong...), deposed the ruling monarchy and then took the throne by right of conquest, after having been chosen by the bulk of the realm (the rebel regions of the North, Vale, Iron Isles, Westerlands, Stormlands) to be king. Conqueror, not usurper, he took nothing illegally. Joffrey was an usurper because he was not of Robert's blood yet was claimed to be so.

Aegon usurped 7 kingdoms and was called king on on the Iron Throne, ruler of the realm with the unimaginative name of... the 7 kingdoms. Robert conquered said realm and did not bother to change the title. That does not make the first a conqueror and the latter an usurper. Robert at least had the support of all but 2 regions in the end. More than Aegon could ever say about the legality of his actions.

Good Night's King- Rat Cook post

Responding to the question: "Can you kill of the main character from the prior 5 books in book 6?" GRRM said yes, you can do anything you want if you make it work. They killed off the main character in "Psycho" and it worked. http://www.westeros.org/Citadel/SSM/Entry/1314

Arya's main overall arc is probably based on the original story The Little Mermaid. But her Mercy/TWOW arc is based on Theda Bara.

Possible source for the inspiration. Here.

GRRM is not promoting incest Here.

Dany is going to be a red god folk saint, because of fire worship. Bride of fire here.

The nature of happy endings... in literature you dirty dog. Here.

"My philosophy of fiction is not necessarily all about advancing the plot..." here.

Whole lotta good here https://io9.gizmodo.com/10-sources-that-george-r-r-martin-borrowed-from-for-ic-511679817

Remember someone wrote this on Nov. 3, 2018:

Guys. This is a cult. Repeat: this is a cult. This is not something a rational person says. The president lives in a delisional make believe world and demands his followers live there too. The constant falsehoods are part of conditioning his audience to believe only him. Cult.

“I’m the only one who ever tells you the facts,” President Trump says. Which is, of course, not true.

And so what we're left with is racism, cloaked in disingenuous bullshit rhetoric, which pretty much sums up the entire right wing. Similarly, they hide behind concern about non-existent voter fraud to justify the suppression of minority votes. It's just racism and tribalism.

So much of the rights rhetoric these days amounts to justifying selfishness and greed, a la the famous Galbraith quote, and justifying racism. I mean, the presidents offered justifications for the Nazis upset about Confederate monuments, as well as the synagogue killer.
