    Unpopular Opinions?

    Unpopular Opinions?

    Me neither. And I find the "cinderella" part of his story (being the Targaryen heir... not yet relevaled in the books but pretty much sure) very boring.

    Minor characters/plots you care in asoiaf

    Garlan Tyrell + within the minor-but-not-100%minor storylines, Bronn and Podrick I also wish we knew more of Genna Lannister
  6. Personally I don't care in the slightest about the magical elements, that's probably why Daenerys is the character I never connected with and I don't care much about Bran or Jon either. What had me hooked was the historical novel, with complex characters, political intrigues and a realistic way of dealing with the major problems of ruling (noble houses fighting each other, church vs. state, political marriages, the role of women within society, etc.).

    [SPOILERS] What did you love about this episode?

    Oh sorry I don't know how I read "interacted" instead of "incinerated", my bad. I don't believe they'll be dying anytime soon, I think the showrunners are setting a meeting up. I'm gonna edit my previous post.

    [SPOILERS] What did you love about this episode?

    I think the three of them will be meeting soon. The show is not very subtle, they're setting this up. But I think they're gonna survive S7.
  9. agreed. She should have given part of the food supply to the common folk to win their sympathy and use the rest for her own army / followers. Plus, personally I don't think Jon was making a list of things you can or you can't burn (like: it's ok to roast as you like, as long as you spare castles and cities); to me he meant to say that you can't roast and threaten and then ask for loyalty or aim to be a sovereign loved by his subjects, able to inspire that loyalty and make them belive in you and believe that things will change. Certainly civilians have to be spared when possible, but I don't think he meant it like "go and roast the armies, just spare the civilians". In fact, "castles" are where the high lords live and the high lords are the ones to whom those armies belong and the armies are made by common folk who have families who won't forget who roasted their relatives: people won't perceive roasting as one of the casualties you can expect from war... being killed by a human is something you can 'accept', like "it's war", being roasted by a monster supposedly extincted centuries ago, against which you stand no chance, definitely is not. Plus, if you roast lords, why do you assume common folk won't perceive you as a danger, because she tells them so?. I think Jon meant that she should take advantage of her dragons showing them off as a way to inspire awe and loyalty, to make people believe in her for she made the impossible possible, instead of using them as a mass distruction weapon. She didn't get either Tyrion's or Jon's advices, in fact in 7x05 preview we see her say "I am not here to murder, join me... [and you're like : yes, right, she got it] join me or die [and you're like: I'm taking that back, she didn't get anything].

    Only 2 more books?

    I agree but I've read somewhere that GRRM said that the last book might be in II volumes as "A Storm of Sword" was, hence the books will be formally two but actually three.

    Daniel Redcliffe wants to be part of GOT. Whom would he play?

    Young Griff (f)Aegon, if he was in the show, Edric Storm. I love Alfie Allen but had he been not available, Theon Greyjoy. Or maybe even Pod. Watching the HP series I wasn't sure about his acting skills (well at the beginning he was a kid) but I truly loved him in that mini series with John Hamm about the doctor in Russia and he does make a lot of theatrical work, he's good.

    Ok, I get it now.

    [SPOILERS] What did you love about this episode?

    you mean it wasn't credible in your opinion? I don't know, maybe you're rtight, maybe they made it too easy but in the end, she was raised to do that job (and she gained some experience in KL as well).

    If the Lannisters ends up winning the Iron Throne

    Oh com'on you never made any mistake. If I were unemployed, I'd go reading all your posts to see if you live up to your own expectations. You brought the word pedantic to a new level and I will consider that as a statement about your character. I guess saying "hey, thanks for your post, I think you made a mistake writing it down.." wouldn't be as satisfying for you as looking down at somebody else. I wrote Beric but I meant Benjen, whose fate is unclear and it will likely be similar to what it is in the show.
