    agreed

    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.

    [Book Spoilers] Jaime & Brienne- What's going on?

    Well to me Jamie/Brienne and SanSan are quite different things for many reasons (intent of the Author, character development, influence of the characters on each other, outcome and others), but I don't wanna go into it (I'm not willing to start an off topic discussion about it... first because it's off topic - I mention it because somehow SanSan has been mentioned in this Jamie Brienne topic - and second, for personal reasons). Just pointing out that 'to everyone their own opinions' but it's not a similitude everyone agrees on (except for the obvious beauty/beast nod).

    Yeah, that would be frustrating indeed.

    [Book Spoilers] Jaime & Brienne- What's going on?

    Same. I would love for them to make it, but i don't think they will (at least in the books, likelly in the show too). My prediction ... I think Jamie will end up dead (possibly in different moments in the books and the show... now the show will be more conventional about that i guess, but i think in the books it's even possible Jamie doesn't get full closure with his brother or with Brienne, maybe he won't even meet them, because that's what happens in life, especially if he dies murdering Cersei / committing some sort of sacrifice and/or murder-suicide: "we will leave this world together, as we once came into it... I cannot die while Cersei lives. We will die together as we were born together.") while Brienne will survive and in the end, she will lkely take what was Jamies place as Lord Commander of the King(Queen)sguard. That role defined Jamie's life for better and for worse and in a depressing way, it's kinda 'romantic' that she - who represents the kinight in the shining armor more than any man could ever do and who is the only living person (along with Tyrion) to recognize some inner honor in him and not judge him from the outside as a kingslayer because of Aerys - takes his place. I can already picture her in a room, alone and thoughtful/moved, while she adds the lines about Jamie heroically dying to save the Kingdom to the White book of the Kingsguard.

    Same, it will be worse.

    Tyrion + Sansa potentially Reunite

    I agree, that Arya part was terrible (and she's a character I like, so…) and also I found disappointing Tyrion's storyline in S6 and the way the approached Jon post-death. I think resurrecting should leave deeper scars, I'm sure in the books it will. They truly changed a lot of stuff in the tv show and cut a lot of 'greyness' .. they santified Shae, making it look as if she was in love with Tyrion when in the books she's not, just to make the watchers 'feel' her death more, they cut off all the part where Tyrion was a sucicidal mess, they made Jamie less grey (left out Tysha hence Jamie is still the perfect big brother, the perfect lover to Cersei till the day she gets mad, the honorable platonic lover of Brienne, etc.), they made the hound way less violent and messed up, they made Daenerys less deluded than she in the books, Theon comes out as a more sympathetic character than in the books as well, Littlefinger is less subtle than in the books, Sansa' story has been changed a lot, Catelyn didn't push Ned to accept his porition as Hand as she did in the books, etc. .. the only character who truly stayed the same is poor Ned, xd. I am annoyed by occasional bad writing but as for the rest, I don't really mind, because it's a great tv show and still a tv show.. and tv shows have their own rules and we know those rules in advance. I can enjoy both the books and the show. I even watched some Brienne/Jamie and Sansa/Tyrion on YT (that was my lowest point, I know). At times, the tw show, tho partly different from the books, is even useful to adjust our theories: for example, I had been convinced Tyrion would ride Viserion. Now, after the last GoT season, I think I was probably mistaken and he might ride Rhaegal instead. I tend to think Sansa will be ok. It seems GRRM completely changed her outline, so I can see her surviving (you never know with GRRM but you see what I mean). Tyrion is my fave character but I'm kinda prepared for the worst, I'm used to see them die (JKR killed both my faves -.-)

    Tyrion + Sansa potentially Reunite

    I've always thought she would be LF's demise, I never considered it was something they would do togehter... I should think about it, thanks for the imput. I've read somewhere (I don't remember where... I wish I could find it) that GRRM said it will take Tyrion at least half TWOW in order to decide he actually wants to live ... so I expect him to be in a bad state of mind for a while. I guess it's kinda realistic, in that situation you don't recover in a snap of fingers. I can see him dying at the very end too... I would prefer him to survive but the author does as he likes. if he dies, i hope his arch will be satisfactory at least. Definitely there is some unfinished business with Sansa and him, I've already said why I think there might be potential for them to be allies/partners but whatever is the road GRRM choses for them (positive or negative) he has to close that circle.

    That would be amazing. I doubt it will happen, but I could do with 3 (like the year following the last Got season?) xd

    Tyrion + Sansa potentially Reunite

    I've said I wouldn't reply further and I won't for the reason I've explained, but this is just a 'technical' detail. My quote "Little lord Tyrion was kinder" etc. is actually from book 6 as I said, it's her POV. GRRM released some chapters from the upcoming book, you may find them on his website or just gooling around.

    Same, there's so much meat before we get there (the show is so much ahead of the books).

    Tyrion + Sansa potentially Reunite

    This is exactly what I meant. That's also true (not only Henry VIII but it happened all the time everywhere). Also, often the religious shield was so thin to be transparent. Like with the Dissolution of Monasteries to gain the lands and the gold they had. I guess either Sansa or Daenerys might end up as 'single', a single Queen like Elizabeth I. I really love her as a figure (I am named after her) and the Henry VIII - Elizabeth I period in general (I love that era and I also love theatre, so…) but hadn't she had Walsingham and Cecil to watch her back in different fields, she would have ended badly. Cecil ruled de facto instead of Elizabeth in many matters, because she trusted him absolutely. Maybe Tyrion, if he doesn't die, could fill Cecil's role for one of them (generically speaking, Tyrion is not really interested in religion, for example). Which one of them will marry? And if one of them - or both - marries / marry, would that marriage last or the husband would die? Would the bride marry again? Hard to say. Out of topic I would pay the money I don't have, to know how he mixed up all the pieces. I love the war of the roses and the following period. It's twice difficult because some early quotes might be misleading, given that he changed the original outline a lot. I know GRRM claimed the endgame of the main charaters is the same it was back in the says (he just changed the way they reached that endgame (Sansa's arc is totally different and while she was doomed in the first outline, now she is clearly destined to survive... who knows how this impacts on the other characters' path). I don't let myself be too hopeful about Tyrion because in the original outline, there was a deathly rivalry between Tyrion and Jon about Arya and she loved the second.. and Tyrion was also described in old interviews as a villain (even if Jamie was to be king and a probably embody the evil villain, now his storyline seems to be Cersei's)… so many things have changed, but if the endgame of the main characters is the same, it's possible Tyrion, the rejected villain, was originally meant to die at the very end and so he is still meant to die, even if he's an anti-hero now. I hope it was not the case. Of course, GRRM can also make him survive and claim he always wanted him to…we would never know. I just hope so much he'll live and I would be really glad if he and Sansa got to be reunited somehow, as allies, friends or partners/married couple (that's the silly fangirl in me). I know a lot of people said that the 5 who were meant to made it 'to the very end' are the 5 survivors of the series.. but one can die also at the very end and the last paragraph of the famous 1991 outline was blackened.

    Tyrion + Sansa potentially Reunite

    I think I have indirectly already replied in the other post (he doesn't want her as a person, etc.). I listed a lot of parallels and you are rightly listing, here, the ones I considered the weakest myself (the little/little might be generic, I suggested myself Alyane and Alysanne might be a coincidence). The fact they both kissed other people doesn't change that they both had to 'suffer' a kiss they didn't want while living in diguise as bastards. Sansa gets more kisses she doesn't want than him because she's a woman in a society where women were 'less'. That said, a lot of the other mirroring situations are strong ones and everyone can see that. I don't own the Holy Truth so I don't know if and to which extend they will be relevant or not in the show or in the books (I'm not ever sure he will live), but it's undeniable Tyrion's and Sansa's narrative arcs are somehow mirroring each other, more than others and I find unlikely that this is just a coincidence, 'knowing' GRRM.
