    ASOIAF or Memory Sorrow and Thorn?

    Tad has a character who pretends to be a boy and goes by the name Marya. George creates a character called Arya who pretends to be a boy. “Marya” ends up with Simon, Arya ends up with Jon Snow. Both Jon and Simon have secret Kings blood and fight the mystical winter creatures. You see the correlation don’t you?

    Ramsay and Euron

    Decimation, poor hygiene, warfare, incompetent rulers, lack of care all together formed the bloody flux. Are you trying to tell me if Dany didn’t kill people in Astapor the bloody flux still would have happened? I’ll say yet again, a direct paraphrase from Barristan chapters is the bloody flux has been the greatest bane of armies. Armies = warfare.

    ASOIAF or Memory Sorrow and Thorn?

    I wouldn’t say it’s a rip off but 90% of it is based of Tad Williams series and spun around to be slightly different and the author is apparently okay with this. It’s an interesting read through to see all the similarities and how Tad ended his books compared to the direction ASOIAF is heading in. In George’s original outline he had the pairing of Arya/Jon and I think this revelation gives it even more plausibility and hints at the ending George had originally drafted. Whether or not he’s changed it we can’t be sure.

    ASOIAF or Memory Sorrow and Thorn?

    It’s interesting to see how much GRRM ASOIAF is exactly like this trilogy. With GRRM original outline of Arya/Jon it’s seems very likely he is going completely off these books which means he will have the ending be similar as well. I wont be surprised to see a Jon/Arya ending.

    ASOIAF or Memory Sorrow and Thorn?

    The ending of this has “Marya”(Arya) marrying Simon(Jon Snow) who has Kings blood and becomes King which coincides with George’s original outline of Arya/Jon.

    Ramsay and Euron

    Proper hygiene, caring for the city she massacred, staying and cleaning up the city? First reports of the bloody flux came after Daenerys host left Astapor. Saying she’s not responsible is idiotic. It was a direct result of her warfare at Astapor and lack of experience when it comes to the aftermath of battles. Daenerys should have cleaned up and cared for the city if she truly cared but she came, took, killed and then left. Furthermore she left an even more inexperienced council to rule Astapor and never came to their aid. There’s a reason Astapor is decimated now beyond repair. Daenerys is responsible for what has happened to Astapor how can you say she’s not?
  7. Everyone should give this whole thread a read through and please tell me your opinions/thoughts on this.

    Ramsay and Euron

    Daenerys handed the business man and his daughters over to a man who is advocating for Daenerys to kill the children she has hostage and is known for being harsh. Tell me what interpretation you get when Daenerys tells such a man to question them sharply? Daenerys massacre of Astapor combined with a lack of knowledge and care for the people she now had control over caused the bloody flux. FYI, after you massacre a city it’d be wise to see it repaired and cleaned up instead of just going through, taking what you want and then leaving and calling the city “free”.

    Ramsay and Euron

    The bloody flux is a direct result of war. It’s noted several times through the trilogy and lore that war leads to disease and most notably the bloody flux. Daenerys does not know how to lead or care for a host and as a direct result of the lack of care disease happens. Barristan himself notes how the bloody flux has been the bane of the greatest armies as the army wasn’t properly cared for.

    Ramsay and Euron

    The Wineseller business man and his daughters were tortured for information Daenerys herself notes that they likely do not have. The first reports of the bloody flux were after Dany left Astapor and it began to spread immediately after her host was there. It’s no coincidence. If I have to spell it out for you, following the massacre at Astapor combined with tens of thousands of freed slaves on the move and mingling, this is where it began as a direct result of yours truly, Daenerys. The bloody flux didn’t just come out of no where. Barristan himself notes of how it is the greatest bane to every army. All of these things combined all point back to the beginning which is Daenerys.

    Ramsay and Euron

    War leads to disease. The bloody flux was a direct result of Dany’s actions and it’s foolish to think it’s not connected to her.

    Ramsay and Euron

    I think torturing children in front of their fathers is one of the worse things I’ve read that has happened in the books and is en-par with the things Ramsay does. I think conquering a city and leaving it behind with incapable people and then not coming to their aid letting them all die starting the bloody flux which will bring her death count into the hundreds of thousands before even setting foot in Westeros is along the same lines as the worst of the worse.

    Ramsay and Euron

    Totally agree. Even without GRRM comments about Daenerys, it’s obvious to the avid reader that she isn’t a good person or someone you should root for. @Sigella is just ignoring and making excuses for Daenerys. She tortures, murders and kills people in greater numbers and efficiency than Tywin ever could and her dragons aren’t even in full play yet. Tens of thousands have died because of her and cities have been decimated beyond repair. When Dany finally comes to Westeros it will be the end of her. Come the end of the story everyone will realize the type of person Dany is.

    We’re Missing the Point

    In the end Jon will follow Ned and sacrifice what he has for the betterment of the realm. He will choose duty over love and Westeros will prosper as the result.

    I hate the Starks, should I keep reading?

    Imagine writing multiple paragraphs on how you don’t like the Starks . The last book was called A Time for a Wolves for a reason, if you don’t like the Starks, which you can make the argument are the central House and characters with how many of them there are and POV chapters, you probably shouldn’t have read past the first book. If you’re hoping for a Targaryen restoration or a Lannister takeover you’re going to be disappointed.
