    Pardon my French : I should have written "terrific" (meaning here awesome) and not "terrible".

    Dany the Mad Queen was a terrible idea

    There is a blatent lack of shades in characters in the last season, especially of Daenerys and Jon who deserved better than the classic opposition between ice and fire, North and South, and so on. Everybody bears his/her flaws in the previous seasons (even Ned with his bastard), but the more we go on into the serie, the simpler go the characters (I'm bad/I'm good). Daenerys's cruelty toward Tarly or the Masters in Mereen should not be hints about a final snap, but just...shades of a well-built character. Anyway this cruelty does not exceed that we can expect from a normal sovereign in Westeros. And -but that was already discussed in another topic- different houses seek alliances by weddings, but at the end, nobody marries nobody. Ok I admit we have one bastard, one crippled, one barren, one gelded (I forgot, his one died in an absolutely stupid way), and that reduces somehow the scope for weddings. But nobody knows the prophecy about Daenerys's barrenness, and prophecies are not supposed to always be true (remember the stallion who mounted the world). Daenerys was about to marry a Mereen prince two seasons ago, so she should have thought about marrying some Westeros lord, instead of childishly complaining about being hated by Westeros people. The normal ending? Daenerys burns down KL. She receives redditions of all lords in Westeros. She begins to rule the best she can/the least worst she can, with Jon part-Hand (Varys and Tyrion were dracarysed for treason), part-hostage (or better, she sends him in exile to run Essos in her name). She marries the nameless Dornish guy. Bran is the guardian of the North, like his father before him. Twice widow, Sansa marries some North-guy to foster anew the alliance after the nasty wars with Ironborns, Boltons and Wildlings. A last remark: why D&D did not deal with the two main plots in the same time? I mean, two/three epic episodes with at once the battle against the Night Walkers and the regular game of thrones, the very stake being how the GOT affects the battle against NW (people are already thinking to the aftermaths, and their schemes could cause the failure of the war against NW...). We could have a huge battle in the vicinity of KL stretching over the three last episodes, with side plots addressed in the same time. For instance, the rivalty between Daenerys and Cersei was overlooked...

    Done. You always find geeker than you, so to the twisted dark creatures hidden behind their computers: I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. I will look for you, I will find you, and I will marry you.

    Feminism -- A continuing discussion

    Tywin I agree with you on the fact that it seems more "safe" to have this beast behind bars rather than lurking outside and looking for more preys. But indeed in this very case the judges will likely ask the victim harsh questions: she began her relation with the abducter/rapist with BDSM sex so his attorney can claim that all this was nothing but a horrible misunderstanding based on sexual games and on a pretending "grey area". The judge will have to dig far to prove that it was not the case. So the young girl won't escape precise questions. With the caring of her family, therapists and justice staff, maybe she could overcome that...

    Feminism -- A continuing discussion

    On one hand, I could understand the father who wants to avoid further trauma for his daughter. On the other hand, two things come in mind: - Because of the father decision, this psycho rapist will remain free. I spite of all the restraints (registered as a sex offender, no contact allowed with minors, no pornography, drugs and alcohol), he will be able to attack again any young girl. So I'm not sure it is the most timely decision... - Facing the past is a part of all therapies and the young victim will have sooner or later to go through this process. A trial could have been an opportunity to do this work. Maybe she would have handled that perfectly with the help of her family and therapists. Incidentally it could have been a pretty revenge to show to her rapist that she is able to stand up against him. The initial penalty seems very light for me: only 10 years and 8 month for having abducted and repeatedly raped a minor during one year? I read the article below, explaining that the victime met him on an internet forum, ran away from home to see him and started a twisted relation that escalated soon in rapes and bad treatments. She has to deal with her own issues (she was anorexic) and wanted a masochist relation, whose the guy took advantage. So the guy pleaded not guilty because of this "grey area" (which is for me a "black area"!). (TTW: descriptions in the article are quite horrible, or maybe am I too squeamish?) https://heavy.com/news/2019/04/michael-wysolovski/

    International thread 2

    Al Baghdadi, leader of the former self-styled ISIS "caliphate" and taken for dead twice in the past, reappeared in a video where he speaks about Sri Lanka attacks, depicted as reprisals for the fall of Baghouz. https://edition.cnn.com/videos/world/2019/04/29/leader-isis-abu-bakr-al-baghdadi-appears-to-be-in-video-crn-vpx.cnn

    International thread 2

    A link to this article would be welcome (unless it is in German?). Europe could pay back that later: if we close our eyes on the Chinese debt-trap diplomacy, we will be the next to be trapped by our greediness. At this stage only Italy among Europe countries seeks to sign the New Silk Road MOU, but I just found out that several UE countries are already part of the BRI (only for the maritime part), including Germany.
