  1. I meant it content-wise , not who is posting of course - just for the record. Was a joke anyways obviously.
  2. Add to that Quentyn's death. Drinkwater in Dance already had a garbled recollection of events claiming Dany had "laughed at" Quent's proposal, when she did no such thing. Only Barristan or perhaps Arch Yronwood can provide Dorne with a true account of what happened in Slaver's Bay, I would not trust Drink to not come up with a falsified version to hide his role in going along with the stupid dragon taming attempt. In the sample chapters of Wind Arianne is already speculating if Dany could have instigated Viserys' death (and Arianne seems sour her bethrotal to Vis did not come to fruition, or that that bethrotal was the reason her father refused other good matches)- so there is very clear build-up to a conflict between Arianne and Dany. Add to that the mention of Teora Toland's dreams (told to Arianne) about another Dance of Dragons, and it seems quite reasonable to assume it will be fAegon + Arianne in conflict with Dany. There has to be a point to why Arianne emerged as another POV late in the series. This does not have to preclude other major characters having issues with Dany as well of course, but this one has the most build-up so far.
  3. If you can't trust produce farmed in Germany, then I'm really scared! Well, I'm guessing this wasn't an overnight development anyway - and should have stuck with the 'Was ich nicht weiss macht mich nicht heiß' principle I guess and not read this portion of the thread Oh well, looking forward to all that chlorinated chicken coming my way across the Atlantic after Halloween!
  4. Maybe Parliament don't approve her? (While Brexit Party MEPs run around shooting water pistols at each other for their own entertainment)
  5. Looks like der Leyen and Lagarde aren't the only two being kicked upstairs then! Jeez, all this because Merkel became a Lame Duck? What when she's gone for good?
  6. Oh dear, Chris Grayling-level of disaster is pretty bad. Well, with Jens you would have the rest of the Governing Council reining him in admittedly, but if he had his way, we would be back to late 2011 straight away. He was opposed to every single crisis fighting measure introduced since then in the name of orthodoxy. Once all of southern Europe had finished crashing out of the euro (maybe even France) and you only had countries with low debt and no deficits left, and the worst of the second global great depression had eventually passed, then he would just have been your generic banker.
  7. Did Lagarde and von der Leyen both get their jobs purely to avoid a German (Jens Weidman) heading the European Central Bank? For the first time a politician, not a central banker, will be running monetary policy in the eurozone. I was tempted to say this is consensus politics at its worst, but on reflection, not sure about Weidman in charge either. That would have been 'rotation' politics gone horribly wrong. I don't know much about von der Leyen, and as political as Lagarde is (the IMF gig wasn't enough for you? Really?), if the only other option was Weidman, then Europe has dodged a bullet.
  8. She could have called off the airstrike at the last minute too .... ah, no, I didn't say that, no, no, back to ranting: D&D write S7 and 8 Writer who wasn't complete crap at the start of the series: Right. That's season 6 done. I heard you guys want to wrap it in 2 more. Jon's KitN with the Vale tagging along, Dany's got a massive army, and the Reach and Dorne. Cersei's just blown up a lot of nobility, can't see her lasting long with a handful of Lannister soldiers left, now that it looks like the Freys are gone. How does it play out from here? I'm guessing the NK overruns the 7K? D1: huh? We don't want the NK messing stuff up man, this is Game of Thrones, man. W: Ok, so Jon takes out the NK? Dany helps him? D2: Yeah, kinda, but they need to convince Cersei. W: wtf for? Dany can probably take out Cersei before breakfast. The Starks not going to interfere with that either. D2: Hey, asshole, what do you mean Cersei gets taken out? You trying to ruin the show? W: errr.... ok, I guess Cersei's got Euron's navy. Oh, ok, Euron's got magic right? Does he get control of Dany's dragons? D1: Even better, he gets Yara. W: errr, ok. So? D2: Man even, even better he gets that Dornish babe too. W: err, ok, but the Dornish army's not going to be on ships right? So someone takes over? D2: The viewers don't care about the Dornish army, they never seen no Dornish army, they only care about those babes, if Euron gets them, he's the big bad. W: Ah, and the Tyrells and Dany's huge army and 3 dragons? D1: Man, just find a way for her to mess it up. W: Ok, I'll think of something, how bad you want it messed up? Does she keep the Dothraki and Unsullied on her island then - sounds like you're saying Euron controls the seas. D2: Man, you really are dumb. Those guys are ethnics. They have to have some scenes. And Dany has to win a battle with her dragon and her foreigners, preferably the horse guys. She has to look foreign and have her dragon shot down as foreshadowing. W: woooaaaa, what happens to the dragon ? D1: He's fine. The boss said foreshadowing, what's the matter, can't you listen? W: And she wins the battle? Why not take KL? D2: Man, just figure something out. She needs to go north of the wall and lose a dragon there so the NK gets through the wall. That's what they want to see - a Zombie dragon! D1: And a zombie polar bear! W: Ah, so she and Jon are a thing then, eh? Oh, but Bran would probably know about Jon's parentage then. Will he see her as family then? D2: Bit of everything, she has to go mad in the end and Jon has to kill her. W: ....... D1: George W: Ok, then make her mad sooner, no? We have two seasons. D2: No, no, everybody wants to see Dragons Vs Zombies. And you can't have the Dany fans getting worked up before S8 starts. She's going to be totally awesome in S7, saving Jon's ass and falling in love with him, and helping to save the North. W: So the Dragons burn the NK? D1: No, that would be too easy. He's fireproof, but we want Arya to stab him. W: ..... D2: Yeah that's one big battle in S8 and in the next one Dany takes it to Cersei. W: So two Mad Queens duking it out? D2: Who's the second? W: err Dany? D2: I know that asshole, who's the other mad one? W: Cersei obviously. D2: Hey, you want me to fire you? Who tf said Cersei is mad? W: Ok, whatever. So Dany fighting with her armies and two dragons and no Westerosi? D1: One dragon. Euron shoots the other. W: Shoots? Why not use a dragon horn .... D2: Hey, shut up, ok? We want that dragon dead and gone. We want her to turn mad. W: ok, but where did Jon come from? D1: He's there too. W: If he knows she's mad, why is he fighting for her. D1: No one's sure if she is mad or not, until she torches everyone in KL. W: Oh wow, I guess she had to do that to get to Cersei's soldiers ..... D2: No, Cersei's soldiers are already dead and the rest are surrendering. W: Then, why? D1: We told you, she's mad. D2: And then she gives a Nazi speech. W: (totally resigned at this point) Right. Then Jon kills her. D1: See, you're starting to get it. W: whatever. D1: And Bran becomes King. Write that in as well. W: I don't suppose you want Bron to be Warden of the South, Lord Paramount of the Reach and Master of coin, eh? Ha, ha, ha .... D2: That would have been a great idea, but I thought of it first. D1: You did? D2: I did, so put that in as well and it's a wrap.
  9. Q: Since you were going freelance since S5, what stopped you from having Mel unleash more shadowbabies?
