    I hate the Starks, should I keep reading?

    I’m one of the few people on this forum who truly enjoy’s every character in these novels. The different “camps” I see in the fandom is something I can’t understand. If the character is written well (and most are) then I like them.

    The business of ASoI&F fandom

    Such as??? Haha Ive lost count of how many times I’ve read the books so I feel I have a good of a gasp of the content as most people on here but I’m also well aware that I can learn a lot from other’s perspective’s. Who’s charging money for their “knowledge?” I’m really at a loss. Youtubers? Podcasters? Please fill me in.

    Poll: Is Lemore Actually Ashara?

    Dany does not have to go to Westeros

    This It just doesn’t work from a narrative perspective. Also, if I had the means to conquer a continent that was my families for 300 years, you’re damn right I would want to.

    Why didn't Lyanna write to Eddard?

    Ned’s talk to Arya about how Lyanna’s “wolf’s blood” led to her early grave may be a large clue into the nature of her abduction/eloping.

    Lady Hornwood's last meal? Me thinks not...

    I’ve never thought about it before but I have to say, this makes the most sense.

    Is GRRM As Complex As You Believe He Is?

    He is very good at not leaving plot holes. As far as every single thread being developed to its fullest and all connecting thematic, I seriously doubt it. But what he does do really well is having a "tight" plot that's difficult to poke holes through.
  8. If this was the case, Jaime would be dead. This is probably right.

    Do the people of Westeros understand money

    This is a stand up bit.

    I made a visual timeline of events

    Wow. I’m impressed.

    Is x character a psychopath?

    Roose is the best example we have of a clinical socio/psychopath. Lady Dustin lays this out for us as clear as day with the whole “Roose has no feelings” spill she gives Theon.

    Is x character a psychopath?

    But how much of this is brought on by an actually psychosis of the brain and how much of this is just a result of a child experiencing massive trauma for a couple of years while being forced to do whatever she can to survive in a cruel world? Psychopaths are born not made.

    Is x character a psychopath?

    There is no clear definition of what a psychopath actually is. Sociopath is an easier term to pin down. When I think of the stereotypical “psychopath”, characteristics of antisocial personality disorder are what come to mind. Such as a total disregard for right and wrong, a complete lack of empathy/compassion/remorse, and the overall view that other people are objects to be used to your benifit.

    Girlfriend, mistress, paramour and concubine

    This is the right answer.

    Is there romantic love between Ned and Catelyn?

    Thanks for coming to my defense.

    Is there romantic love between Ned and Catelyn?

    They kind of do because of the incredible amount of love that the couple both have for the children.

    For the record... and posterity!

    1. Jon's parentage: RLJ: Too many hints 2. Tyrion is not a Targ, he isn't Aerys' son He's Tywin's son. I’m biased on this one because I really want Tyrion to just be Tywin’s son. 3. Bran didn't eat Jojen I really don’t know. Jojen paste makes sense to me though. 4. Ramsay wrote the PL This one is a real mind fuck for me. 5. Red door/lemon tree = Braavos I lean towards Braavos but if it was somewhere else I wouldn’t be surprised. 6. Lanna is the daughter of the SW and Gerion Lannister, not Tyrion Don’t know 7. Theon will not be killed before the heart tree at the CV. I don't think he’s done yet. 8. Young Griff is the real Aegon Targaryen I think he is fake. But I don’t completely sold on the whole Blackfyre thing.

    Do you think Victarion Greyjoy is a psycopath?

    Your right. A pretty good parallel there.

    Do you think Victarion Greyjoy is a psycopath?

    No, he’s just super Ironborn. I love the character too. One aspect of Euron that I think doesn’t get enough attention is the fact that he’s tripping balls all the time. I’ve always wondered how psychedelic drugs would affect an already “evil” mind. All of his grandiose ideas are easier to understand in this light.

    Who is Haldon Halfmaester?

    Sorry if this (I'm certain it has) been discussed before, But who is Haldon Halfmaester, really? So much speculation goes into Lemore's identity but I never see any questions about Haldon. Even when Tyrion is naming the "secret identities" of the pole boat, Haldon is never mentioned. ADWD - Tyrion VI Tyrion mentions the entire pole boat crew except Haldon. Why is that? Is GRRM trying to take our focus off this smart/ out of place man? Is he someone that might have been important in pre GOT history? What does everyone here thing. Tinfoils are welcome.
  21. You are one of favorite posters on this forum. So I want to see where you fall on the whole “Tyrion is Aerys’ son” theory. Personally I don’t like it only because the dynamic of Tywin/Tyrion fascinates me to no end. And for me, it works better with Tyrion being Tywin’s biological son.
  22. @Lord Varys You make a good point that Tywin possibly had a sentimental side.

    Which book has the best final chapter?

    Dance. It’s one of the best chapters in the entire series. It does a great job of touching on almost everything going on in the novels at that point and the dramatic ending gives it a great boost. While writing this I realized I forgot about GOT’s ending. That’s probably the best.
  24. A lot of us would not be OK with that.

    Do you mean overrated in or out of universe?
