Do you consider any of the characters killed off to be missed opportunities, or all well crafted storytelling decisions?
A_Man_Is_No_One replied to Mwm's topic in General (ASoIaF)Oberyn is the biggest for me, regardless of what his death meant for the Dorne storyline, I loved his character and definitely felt like his story was incomplete, however, I believe that was the intention until Doran's plan is put into further motion. Nimble Dick was cool, albeit minor. His death still had meaning though. All in all, GRRM is very deliberate. I don't really feel like any of his in-story deaths were unnecessary or pointless. Doesn't mean I don't still wish some were around more.
A_Man_Is_No_One replied to Lost Melnibonean's topic in General (ASoIaF)Agreed.
A_Man_Is_No_One replied to Lost Melnibonean's topic in General (ASoIaF)Not sure if someone said this already, I haven't been through all the replies but Broken Crown by Mumford & Sons It could apply to multiple characters, mostly Starks such as Ned, Robb and Jon. However lots of Mumford & Sons songs remind me of ASOIAF and it's characters.) Believe (Davos, Stannis, Sansa, basically any character that isn't sure of what they believe or who they are.) Hopeless Wanderer (Arya, The Hound, Tyrion, any character that feels hopeless, or that they don't belong, and wanders.) Little Lion Man (Tyrion, basically the perfect song for him. Could apply to Jaime as well.) Winter Winds (Jon, Sam, Robb, characters in the North who struggle with love and the circumstances like Jon and Sam being in the Night's Watch and loving wildlings and Robb being already betrothed to another woman.) Liar (Theon, Tyrion, characters who are seen as cowards and liars.) Lovers Eyes (Jon, Sam, Robb, same as Winter Winds basically. Characters who are in love and struggle with it.) Sigh No More (Cersei & Jaime, Jon & Ygritte, couples whose love brings out the best in each others lives.) Timshel (Jon & Sam, Bran & Meera, strong friendships.)
