    Formula One 2018

    What I most anticipate about the next season is Leclerc behind a Ferrari wheel; this kid had me excited to watch GP2 and his races rather than F1 back in 2017, you can guess how ecstatic I was when he was confirmed by Scuderia. He did not disappoint this year, so the young man will go into testing on a high which will hopefully mean a great start to the upcoming season and making a case for the No.1 driver status. Imagine him pushing Vettel down to a supporting role and make expendable since the German is expensive to retain as well. Then enters Mick Schumacher to partner Leclerc

    Malazan: High House Shadow edition

    I was referring to the Adjunct but I agree all the same, the three Parans rank among the weakest. The youngest being the most loathsome and insufferable character in the books by far.
  3. Excuse my ignorance, I have only read the first two books in the FarSeer series, which series is ROTE? Is it tied to the Far Seer universe?

    Malazan: High House Shadow edition

    I think the biggest problem with the Bonehunters plotline is the author's blatant attempt to paint Paran as some kind of genius commander with superhuman will and grit, it's bad because the reader knows it, he knows it and even the damn characters know it.

    Malazan: High House Shadow edition

    Came back to the series a few months ago and have been gradually re-reading MBOTF since; at first I was not sure if I would be able to get to the finish line, especially since my opinion of the text being turgid was strengthened upon the re-read, but now I'm halfway through Dust of Dreams and I can say it has been a pleasure.
  6. I started reading Abercrombie by devouring The Blade Itself, Before They Are Hanged, Last Argument of Kings, after I was done I immediately picked up The Heroes, but for some reason it didn't feel the same and left the book unread. Seeing your comment I might go back to it.
  7. I thought they were fucking in the First Keep not the Broken Tower?

    Best Commanders alive at the end of ADWD

    Top warrior commanders, aka a soldier's general, are Victarion, Blackfish and Tarly; while the other great commanders, battlefield tacticians, are men like Stannis and maybe Euron.

    GRRM swears fealty to Tolkien in this ASOIAF Easter Egg

    So what was this top secret theory? I missed the thread, PM me the gist of the theory at least if you can.

    Did Bran Warg Into Summer to Kill The Assassin?

    I'm not trying to change your mind, just threw out an idea that occurred to me and wanted a discussion over it. On another note, I'm a firm believer of that not everything should be spelled out for one in the text to be true, I take pleasure in trying to find what is left unsaid and provides opportunity for inference.
  11. Even if she received some basic training when she was small enough to pass as Jaime, years of physical inactivity and lack of further training means she is no different than any other untrained woman.

    Did Bran Warg Into Summer to Kill The Assassin?

    What I suggested in my OP was that Summer had some minor help - a mental shove - from Bran to bring the immediate danger to the wolf's attention. If you read the scene, there is not much to suggest that the struggle inside the room was noisy at all. When finally Catelyn screamed Summer was there in a matter of moments, considering the wolf would have had to run to the entrance of the tower from below the window and climb up the stairs; I don't think the timing works. Bran was chosen because of his vast telepathic potential to replace the great all knowing three-eyed raven and in his immediate POV we learned that he with the help of the said entity he could witness events happening in different parts of the world. So it is not far from the realm of possibilities to infer that Bran could have had a part, an unconscious and instinctual one, in saving his mother and consequently that of his own life.

    Did Bran Warg Into Summer to Kill The Assassin?

    It could have felt like another sequence of endless dreams to him, something his psyche later suppressed; it's natural for one not to remember the bulk of one's dreams after waking up.
  14. Every time I read this chapter during my re-reads, this question pops into my head; I always concluded, in my haste to move on, it was Summer smelling trouble and coming to help. Finally thinking about the issue properly, it occurs to me that if it was the wolf noticing danger, the intruder would not even have made it up to Bran's room. I have raised three guard dogs over the years and their instinct and senses are just too formidable - let alone a legendary wolf - to let a threat go by like that without intercepting it. Now since the assassin had been living in the stables for days and reeked of horses, I presume that's what fooled Summer and let the guy slip past his guard. Knowing the wolf had missed the threat, the only explanation is Bran's telepathic powers sensing extreme danger to himself and his mother forced him to warg into Summer and eliminate the danger. It probably was not the strongest case of mind control though, as I believe Summer did most of the work and Bran as a novice warg just did what he could to lead the wolf to the assassin.
  15. So the OP thinks he has found something so huge in the books which would end Martin's career because it might offend a group of people? What does that say about the world we live in or the OP?
