    Was Tywin Lannister a villain?

    He ordered the gang rape of a 13 or 14 year old girl. Yes he is a villain.

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

    Song for Jon. Burn by The Cure (from The Crow soundtrack) "Don't look don't look," the shadows breathe, Whispering me away from you. "Don't wake at night to watch her sleep, You know that you will always lose This trembling, adored, tousled bird-mad girl." But every night I burn, Every night I call your name Every night I burn, Every night I fall again "Oh don't talk of love," the shadows purr, Murmuring me away from you. "Don't talk of worlds that never were; The end is all that's ever true. There's nothing you can ever say, Nothing you can ever do." Still every night I burn, Every night I scream your name Every night I burn, Every night the dream's the same Every night I burn, Waiting for my only friend Every night I burn, Waiting for the world to end "Just paint your face," the shadows smile, Slipping me away from you. "Oh, it doesn't matter how you hide, Find you if we're wanting to. So, slide back down and close your eyes, Sleep a while, you must be tired." But every night I burn, Every night I call your name Every night I burn, Every night I fall again Every night I burn, Scream the animal scream Every night I burn, Dream the crow black dream Dream the crow black dream.

    Wow, I never noticed that v.16

    I'm sure this won't blow anyone's mind but I've recently finished my first aGoT re-read and these stood out to me - In Asshai, the maester that Mirri Maz Duur learnt anatomy and the common tongue from was Marywn - that's a huge revelation! He is mentioned once in aSoS then we meet him properly in aFFC, so I'm not going to kick myself for missing it the first time. For some reason I'd assumed the Seven Kingdoms were an Andal thing (perhaps their association with the number 7?) but they were started by the First Men. But the scene and chapter that stood out the most was Jon and Aemon's conversation on honor vs love in Jon VIII. I noticed there was a focus on Jon's bloody hands: If anyone can point me to an analysis of this scene, I'd love to read it.

    I'm surprised no-one has mentioned Firestarter by The Prodigy, as sung by Keith Flint.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Thanks so much for the reply and the welcome! I did enjoy that analysis. I'll give you an example of why I chose my forum name. I have read and enjoyed many of your posts, and I really like your avatar picture as well. But I didn't even notice the "raven" reference in your name until you explicitly pointed it out in another post! I meant to mention in my first post, I am on my first re-read of AGOT after reading through the series fairly quickly (wanting to find out what would happen!). In between I have read a lot of this forum and other essays, and that has inspired me to read the text a lot more closely. I haven't looked at the poetry thread as yet as I am not really well versed (ha!) in poetry, but I will check it out, thanks!

    Small Questions v. 10105

    I've been reading this forum for a while and have just signed up. As you may have guessed, a lot of the subtext of the novels has gone over my head, er, under my radar perhaps? But reading this forum and links posted on it has given me a much deeper appreciation for the series so, (even though many that this is directed to probably won't read this comment), thanks so much! On with my small question. From AGOT Dany V: Could this be a reference to Varys and his ability to not get blood on his hands? If so, who are the thieves and what have they stolen - the Iron Throne? or am I reading too much into it?
