  1. Unless (in Sean Bean's case) the flashback or vision has him dying.....and we all know how he likes that now.
  2. No. You guys can do it without me, I don't visit the forum often, so'd you'd be waiting a long time.
  3. This is just copy paste of my post about the blog post from R&R: I f***ing hope he's moving away from the ending of the show. If it's the same ending with different language, I will storm outside with all the books, burn them and post that video on the Internet (It would've been a waste of money and time, but screw it, I've got a paying job for the summer, so fine). It's been more than a decade since ADWD. I realize he's a gardener, we're not 90 year old seniors with memory problems who need to be told every five minutes, and I know that he's going to be rewriting stuff, but if we've had a decade waiting, and it's just the same dreck as the two D's, I'll be majorly ticked off. A moose turd pie is still a moose turd pie, no matter how much sugar you dump on it. No offense intended, the post just rubbed me the wrong way.
  4. Here's mine, @Lady Fevre Dream. I f***ing hope he's moving away from the ending of the show.

  5. Or you could give them one tiny aspirin pill......at least then you don't go to prison. "Your Honor, I would never coldly murder someone. He simply said his head hurt, and as such, I rectified it. I plead not guilty, and shall be suing you for damages and defamation of my good character."
  6. Speaking as one who reads them fairly often, I do like a lot of the stories (my guilty pleasures are the revenge fics), but all I can think of is "This is after S8." The only ones I can often really sink into are the fix its that start at the beginning of S7. My favorite fix it was Forewarned, by ReganX. It gave me a big justice boner (*Spoiler, the Starks don't get a free ride and two die horrible deaths), and while it obviously has a couple of problems, it's still really good and treats the Queen how she deserved.
  7. Indeed. With how they murdered her character, I'd tell people (or at least the HBO execs) to politely jump into a piranha tank if they asked me. Besides, there's no real stakes if the characters can be resurrected willy-nilly like MaRey Sue "Skywalker" (Screw you, Disney) Palpatine (HOW THE EVERLOVING F*** did PALPS do the wild thing?!) But I digress.
  8. I liked him in AGOT and Clash, but started to dislike him in Storm because it sort of seemed like he went back in character development. Obviously, the Others are massively f***ing scary, but I don't see Grenn or anyone collapsing into the snow and having to be carried around like a sack of grain atop someone's back. Then AFFC came by, and I read all his chapters a and thought it was useless and so darn boring that I just skip his chapters. Not like it adds anything, and we're prolly never going to get the next book, so no point. He's got too much damn plot armor and is pretty unlikable quite a bit.
  9. Let's start a new game....jeez, forgot about this.
  10. Unless the teacher posts an example essay, and you essentially use its framework and some evidence to help you get a 92/100. Not that I did that, though. I would never.
  11. Errrr....yay? More incest? Like a really cracky crackfic combined with a Western touch, with ice spiders. Speaking of ice spiders, it shows you how dumb the NW and the First Men were: they built a WALL to keep out SPIDERS who can literally climb. Plus, we never did see them in the show, which is odd because if D&D were all about spectacle, big set-pieces and cool visuals, I would think they would want to do something like that. Imagine, the Battle of Winterfell, big icy blue spiders are climbing the walls, killing, throwing wights aside to get at the humans, while the humans valiantly, desperately try to keep the castle secure. Cool, right?
  12. 1. It's entirely outside of Karstark's authority to execute the two hostages/captives, since it breaks down the chain of command. If you were, say, captain of an Imperial Star Destroyer or a First Order Resurgent class Star Destroyer (both classes have crews in the tens of thousands: 46,785 for the ISD and a whopping 82,000 for the standard Resurgent, but I've slightly digressed). Imagine if you had to fight a Rebel/Resistance fleet and your officers, pilots and crew essentially did whatever the hell they wanted to do, do you think you'd win against a fully composed, under control enemy? The TIE fighter pilots go off and do twirls and dogfight uncontrolled with the enemy starfighters, the gunners use asteroids for target practice before shooting at the enemy, the stormtroopers and maintenance people are partying in the barracks, and your bridge crew is having an orgy, how do you win when everyone does what they want to? TL;DR for this one, since it's sort of a nerdy rant, but chain of command is very important for any government or army, wartime or not. It's not Karstark's place to make such a decision to execute hostages that could be traded for. Not Sansa, to be sure, but some lower level lord or knight. It says that the boss is in the driver's seat and that he's trying to get people back in the game to keep fighting. 2. Why do you need to kill the two, when they're sleeping, in their birthday suits, kill/injure their guards (Your allies!) and give them more holes than the gods wanted them to have? Where's the gain? Everyone here knows that part of doing something is a risk vs reward situation. What'd the Stark faction gain by killing two unarmed squires? Sure, they probably weren't worth much in the grand scheme, but it's not like it would hurt to keep them around from a logical POV.
  13. I'm sure you saw the thread talking about which direwolf will die next. Vaguely amusing, but not as funny as the early pages of Arya's Mental Illness.
  14. I was sorta checking in only briefly for the past few months, so I only occasionally saw them, but I'm really remembering all the ridiculous catfights that went on here and on other threads, now that it's summer and I can be on here more without having to worry about stuff.
  15. I would reply fully to this, but I think I would have a stroke at the stupidity of that, so I'll keep it very short: BULLSHIT.
  16. We still fight the good fight. I believe I called someone laughable when they attempted to cover it with modern morals and values. In this setting.
  17. Vader had control of Death Squadron, which if I remember correctly was initially only six ships (usual Imperial fleet comp focusing on ISDs, six or so ISD I and II's: Devastator, Tyrant, Avenger, Conquest, Stalker and the Lady Ex). Presumably, Tyrant (Captain Lennox) had moved out of the formation to cut off escape, got hit and disabled and besides, seventeen of the thirty GR75s were destroyed, which means the rest of the fleet was doing something. Probably Vader ordered the fleet to pursue the Falcon, and since the blockade was probably only piecemeal if the capital ships blasted after the Falcon, I can believe that Luke, who left later than Han and his band of fellows, managed to take a different vector offplanet and reach the hyperlane. Incom Corporation, the company that produced the Z95 Headhunter, the T65 X-wing, etc also produced the T16, which was said to have very similar controls to the X-wing. Plus, he almost gets blown up, and he only destroys the TIE fighter when his targeting computer locks on. As for destroying the DS-1, well...."Use the Force, Luke." Yeah, it's a bit ridiculous, so I'll hand you this. Well, first, the Imperial Fleet saw the Death Star blow up, and they think the Emperor was on it, with Lord Vader, the Executor has crashed into the battle station, the rebels are everywhere, they've lost multiple Star Destroyers....I can easily believe order broke down in the ranks. Plus, we hear in Legends lore that the secondary command ship got attacked by Green Squadron and destroyed or damaged, so... As for the battle itself, from what I see the Destroyers only really start visibly pounding away once the rebels are amongst them. Remember, their orders weren't to destroy the rebel fleet, only to keep them penned in with firepower and a couple of interdictors so the DS-2 could blow them up. Plus, though I have doubts that each Rebel starfighter was fully loaded with proton bombs, proton torpedoes, concussion missiles, I'm sure that they had enough stuff to take out capital ships. Those ships were designed to come out of hyperspace, fire off missiles and such before the TIEs could launch (plus, ISDs have really weak/nonexistent point defense systems) Imperial TIEs are far more deficient, coming a viewpoint of "quality over quantity" and rebel fleets were good at starfighter screening, etc. Those ships were probably getting hit with bucketloads of munitions, and Mon Cal cruisers are supposed to be really well shielded. It's not just the two, it's supposed to be about half the fleet that's destroyed, captured or damaged.
  18. No, sir. Just look up on YouTube. You'll understand what happened then.
  19. You know, for a second, I was confused when I saw the thread's name to be "SNOW in development." My little, idle thought was "Why the hell is HBO developing snow? It falls naturally from the sky, we don't need a company to develop it for us." Then my brain kicked in. (Though I would not protest really good artificial snow. We don't get more than an inch once or twice a year where I'm at.)
  20. Arbor Gold. I think it might be able to cool off my mouth, but I've never drunken wine and eaten spicy food together. Would you rather be a Faceless Man, or red priest?
  21. We're going to need a new thread for this soon, @The Bard of Banefort.
