    Would you rather?

    A false royal. Who cares if they gossip about my birth? WYR be Varys' spy or Littlefinger's?
  2. shadin

    Would you rather?

    A peasant in the riverlands. At least I have the (relative) freedom to flee during war. Would you rather be a fabolously rich merchant in Gulltown or a hedge knight granted lands on the Gift?

    Would you rather?

    Ice dragon. Afterwards I can die content. Would you rather be a Yunkaii slave soldier or a Meereen pit fighter?
  4. shadin

    Would you rather?

    Illyrio. Less chances of dying. Would you rather die by bear (a la Amory Lorch) or starved and chopped (a la Vargo Hoat)?

    Would you rather?

    Oldtown. Biased answer since we've never seen Lannisport on page, but I think it offers more options, socioeconomically speaking. Also, I'm oriental and I assume Oldtown's more diverse ethnically, so more tolerant. WYR be a successful musician at court or a penniless hedge knight?

    Would you rather?

    Sandor Clegane. Less creepy, less dead (I subscribe to the gravedigger theory). And who knows where Ser Robert Strong's loyalty lies? I'd rather trust my life to someone I can, at least to an extent, understand. If you were a peasant in the North, WYR get appointed as castellan of Winterfell or tasked to rule over a new-found village on the Gift (with the rights to build a holdfast but also chances of wildling raids)?

    Would you rather?

    Fair point. I was actually leaning towards the dragon's egg because I thought I could buy a knighthood and land with it. A noble lady. I think it'll be easier to exert influence via my husband (gods, I hope it won't be Walder Frey) than to rise in the ranks from being a commoner. If you were tasked by the throne to found a new port town along the Westerosi eastern coast, would you rather build it in Dorne (along the saltshore), or in the Vale (somewhere North of Gulltown)?

    Would you rather?

    Supposing they won't turn on me, the basilisk. Deadlier, I think. If you're a commoner in Westeros, WYR come upon a dragon's egg or granted land and a knighthood?
  9. shadin

    Would you rather?

    Hm. Tough choice. A Night's Watch member. Because there's less chance of getting whipped. And either way, escape will be hard. Not knowing what would happen, would you rather be a common soldier on Tarly's side at the Battle of Ashford or be a defender under Stannis at the siege of Storm's End?
  10. shadin

    Would you rather?

    Varys. I think he has a larger capacity for sympathy than LF. WYR get exiled or sent to the Wall?
  11. shadin

    Would you rather?

    The former. I could still run away with my lover eventually, I guess. Would you rather have Randyll Tarly (merciless but efficient) as your lord or something like Eustace Osgrey (passive but lax)? Say their influence and wealth are equivalent.

    References and Homages

    I don't know if it's mentioned here before but has anyone noticed how similar Mandon Moore's name is to Mandy Moore? I doubt there are any connections aside from their names, but anyway I thought I'd bring it up here in case others have noticed it too.

    Songs that Make Us Think of A Song of Ice and Fire

    Nope, but my brothers play this on the guitar always. And yes, the singer could definitely be a Frey!
  14. Confession 1: I hated how GRRM wrote Ygritte's death. I think he didn't have to write "Ygritte/she said, dying." -- or something, sorry, too lazy to look for the exact words -- and instead just ended it at "Oh, you know nothing, Jon Snow.". It's very minor but it bugged me during my first reread that I didn't continue for a time. Confession 2: I think Melisandre in Season 6 was super hot. I don't follow the show, but I just saw season 6 a few days back and now I think I'm going to watch season 7 for Mel...

    Songs that Make Us Think of A Song of Ice and Fire

    Also when my brothers sing "Hangman", the one that goes Slack your rope, hangman, slack it for a while I think I see my father coming riding many a mile Father have you brought me hope, have you paid my fees? Or have you come to see me hanging from the gallows tree? I imagine it's being sung by someone from in-universe.
