  1. Incest is good for Targaryens, though? Goodman, if you're going to criticize Jaime and Craster for incest, then you have to criticize House Targaryen as well. At least try to be more subtle about your double standards. IRL, I believe incest is disgusting. In ASOIAF, it's still gross, but at least it's contained to pages. Incest makes for interesting tags in fanfiction, though.
  2. So uncivilized. Our good Ser Barristan would never do such. Due apologies for the disappearance, I've been busy. Predictions: 1. Stannis wins the Battle of Ice, but because he made some bad decisions, like possibly sacrificing Shireen, his men desert him. He dies. Ramsay dies. 2. Daenerys lands in Westeros at the end of TWOW. 3. Sansa doesn't marry Harrold, Petyr tries to wed her to fAegon 4. fAegon takes King's Landing, kills Cersei, imprisons Tommen and Margaery in Maegor's comfortably. Large amount of damage to KL, IDK. GRRM might save KL for the battle between fAegon and Dany. 5. Jon is either resurrected, or was only temporarily out of commission. Hopes: 1. Ramsay is flayed and/or fed to his dogs. 2. Gendry and the Brotherhood meet up with Arya, and maybe start north. 3. Edmure and Roslin are freed during Red Wedding 2.0, or freed on the way to Casterly Rock. 4. Dany brings a bunch of sellswords to supplement her less than ideal Unsullied and Dothraki. 5. fAegon is killed by a mad JonCon, crazy by greyscale and learning that fAegon is not Rhaegar's. Wishful Thinking: 1. Dany is able to take control of most of the south without Pyrrhic losses. 2. fAegon dies. 3. Cersei dies, Tommen and Myrcella are simply kept as hostages and live on happily. 4. Jon and Dany hook up. KITN and southern queen marriage alliance? 5. Shireen lives.
  3. At least he didn't make as much of a fool out of himself as Duncan the Dumb, and Jaehaerys.
  4. Dany and Jon, Edric and Arya, SanSan. A pox upon whoever comes between my babies Jon and Dany. I need a boatbaby this time around.
  5. I'm honestly curious as to what those reforms were. Ideas, anyone? He should've just made Daeron the heir, IMO. All the sons were idiots, but he seems like the best, and with Olenna by his side, he would've been fine. And on another tangent, completely unrelated. @The Bard of Banefort, I've come to register a complaint for a thread with TWENTY SEVEN pages, while my lily-white threads were locked at 20-21.
  6. We have a sacred obligation to talk about Jar Jar. I don't believe I've ever spoken about a Jar Jar/Padme fic in a fic (it was set on the ISD Chimaera)I found. IIRC, it was called Naboo Nights: An Erotic Gungan Thriller.
  7. The references are wildly abundant and I love it.
  8. Yes, but then again, that'll probably be too distant for northerners, I think. Robb's objection to Cat's idea to make the Vale lordlings heir to the north was that they were too distant (and from the Vale). Oh, and on an unrelated note (since you've posited that ASOIAF takes a lot of stuff from Dune, do you think that Baron Harkonnen was a partial inspiration for Yezzan?)
  9. I think she's Quaithe, but you would have to find someone else to collect all the evidence.
  10. We get background stuff, like setting, and we can surmise the societal structure of Rohan through armies and such. We know that it's partially based off of Anglo-Saxon society, so we can also extrapolate a bit more information. With the Dothraki, since they are simply not related to Mongols besides being "big scary horse nomads who kill every enemy in their path," it's harder, since their known society contradicts IRL nomads. Eowyn x Aragorn for the win, but Arwen is pretty good too. True, but when GRRM says that he's attempting to be "real" and when people praise his story for "gritty realism," it should be actually realistic. On another note, @SeanF and @Aldarion, do you think that the Lhazareen should've logically been attached to Meereen, if Dothraki raids were such a problem? Sure, Meereen doesn't seem to have a standing army (which is another odd thing, if they're so rich. They should have a big military/bureaucratic apparatus), but it might deter most raiders.
  11. Well, for Helm's Gate in the books, Erkenbrand and his infantry are the ones who show up and save the day. Eomer was already at the complex. Gandalf brings E and company along (minus the ones he assigns to bury the dead at Isen Ford). Then Pelennor Fields is just the cavalry because all this is working on a fairly tight timetable, no time to get the infantry to Minas Tirith once Hirgon and the Red Arrow arrive. Ye, Lady Galadriel and Lady Arwen, but I can't make heads or tails of the different types. I just call them Mirkwood or Lothlorien. IDK what Tolkien does.
  12. She gets referred to as Lady Eowyn if I recall correctly. I don't think he banished Eomer in the book, but that does happen in the movies. And the army (Erkenbrand and such) is tied up at Helm's Gate, KIA at the Fords of Isen, etc. And there were no elves besides Legolas at BoHG. I think they all sing, but it's the Rohirrim I remember the most.
  13. The Reach, since they're the most productive/richest kingdom. Maybe not the best, but quantity has a quality all of its own.
  14. We're talking about the book Rohan, not movie Rohan. 1. Yeah, kinda. Theoden sings out his "spear will be shaken" stuff before they enter the Rammas Echor. And Rohan army is based partially off of cavalry. 2. Movie stuff, or partially happened while under Saruman's control. 3. In the book, there is no hesitation, really to support Gondor, since Rohan's fate rises or falls with the battles in Gondor. They have to support Denethor's men, or else it's them against the forces of Mordor. 4. Eowyn is the only woman known to be in the army that goes to the Pelennor Fields. I don't remember if any other women have fought. Also, Gondor doesn't have princesses since there was no king for a long time until Aragorn. Plus, I don't think that Boromir and Faramir had a sister, so no fighting princesses.
  15. No, we're not giving him a chance because only idiots with no social knowledge would do that. Why should we give a traitorous, incompetent, whiny, childish idiot who proposed letting women and children die and thus be added to the Other's numbers just because he didn't want the status quo to change a chance? You might reassess your opinion of him because he looks like a dumba** traitor from where I'm standing.
