    Let me guess: Howland studied at Hogwarts? :D

    that is actually popular ! OR you'll get posters calculating the force required to pull down a tower using ropes and horses... then there will be loads of disagreements among experts on diameter of the ropes , number of horses , etc, etc.

    The Freys do not deserve any more punishment.  Cat and the nasty Wayman have done enough.  Punish the Starks for dragging the Freys into their rebellion. 

    if anyone could claim that Starks dragged them into their rebellion , it's their vassals. Freys weren't dragged into anything ; they reached an agreement . granted, Starks didn't honor that agreement but that still doesn't mean they should be punished for dragging Freys into their rebellion!

    The fact that literally every aspect of this series gets orders of magnitude bigger than Martin initially plans feels like an even bigger clue. :D I'm sure he'll change his tune when he hits 1000 MS pages in Blood & Fire and he's still writing about Aegon the Unworthy. 

    it does sound like him to write 1000 pages and doesn't get passed Aegon Lusty Unworthy . not to mention , without a third book he'll have to include Aerys II's reign , Robert's rebellion and Harrenhall in detail , too.  

    however , if he wants to call the second book Blood and Fire instead of Fire and Blood 2 , what will he call the third books? Flood? besides, Blood and Fire being the inverse of Targaryen words might suggest the end of their dynasty..

    now, I'm lost again! @Ran can you tell us if there will be a third F&B book?

    Tywin didn't rape her. He paid her to be a prostitute. We never hear of her refusing money. Or Tyrion saying she fought back and resisted. 

    I'm gonna stop you right there.. if you don't see that as problematic and if the only version of rape in your mind is a woman kicking and screaming whilst the rapist has his way with her , then we don't really have to discuss anything! we have very different views

    He has said many times that he wouldn't do other projects until TWoW is finished, but I guess he couldn't help himself. :unsure:

    well , he certainly is working on other projects... I'm gonna lean towards a more optimist view by thinking he means he won't publish any more books before WoW and conclude that he is close to the end of WoW! however , I'm pretty sure that I'm just fooling myself:leaving:

    So basically nothing new. GRRM is working on all these projects, and aside from the up coming tv show, non of them are near completion. That's all I got out of that article.

    me too ... :wacko:

    I wonder what the Who and Who book is gonna be.. I mean , if it's just the app info , it's not exactly .. exciting (sorry for saying that)

    Have GRRM and I become telepathically linked? I recently started saying how I’d prefer if he prioritized DnE, and this blog post makes me think he might be :stunned:

    how about sending him some Winds of Winter positive energy then , Bard?:bang:

     but his father is a great man

    ok! which one is his greatest deed?

    1) mascaraing Tarbeks and Reynes

    2) forcing his father's mistress to a walk of shame(and make no mistake ser.. he only did that because she was a commoner who had risen above not because she was a corrupted woman)

    3) having his son's 14 yr old wife gang raped

    4) making his son watch his wife being raped 

    5) neglecting his twins to the point that he was entirely clueless about their affair

    6) thinking himself so high and above that ,for no good reason , just assumed crown prince of a dynasty that hardly married outside of their inner circle, would be his son-in-law.  and worse than that made his little daughter believe that , having her heart broken afterwards.

    7) accusing his dead wife of being unfaithful for the sole reason of not getting a pretty son , before her corpse was cold.

    8) "honoring" his wife's memory by offending her friend

    9) ordering two brutes to murder children

    10 ) ordering a mad man to rape and kill a woman because Great Tywin was offended by her marriage

    11) conspiring for a slaughter of nobles and innocent soldiers in a wedding

    12) probably Duskendale (disputed)

    He was a terrible hand of the king.

    he did the best with what he had

    6 hours ago, Hrulj said:

    He gave away Myrcella for no gain. There is no Dornish alliance, Dorne still plots with Targaryens, and it was Neutral either way.

    if it wasn't for their Targ Plot , the Dornish probably would have joined the war . Tyrion was no fortune teller , therefore , what he did was the best in that situation.

    His entire plan for city defense hedged on one singular trick - chain and wildfyre, which failed. Without Tywin and Reach forces arriving Stannis would have taken the city.

    if not for his trick , Stannis would have taken the city before Tywin and Reach could save anyone.

    He spent his handship on petty power struggles with his sister and making enemies of all Lannister loyalists in the city.

    that wasn't just on Tyrion. those two should have joined forces but Cersei's paranoia came in the way and the only way for Tyrion to actually do anything was to fight her back. and if by Lannister loyalists you mean Pycelle and Janos...please!..

    He brought a prostitute over,

    not his finest hour

    despite explicitly being told not to,

    the irony is Tywin did the same.. he just kept his whoring secret

    6 hours ago, Hrulj said:

    then proceeded to threaten his own nephew with rape

    granted , a terrible threat . but the truth is he was playing a part that he knew Cersei would buy.. he never meant to harm Tommen. that's the thing about Tyrion : he has accepted people referring to him as a monstrous Lannister imp and he plays the part .. although as time goes by he is embracing that persona entirely.

    for her sake

    shall we talk about how Chataya was an innocent human being that Cersei used for no absolute gain other than threatening Tyrion? and unlike Tyrion , she would have been true to her word

    and sets stage for his own imprisonment and condemnation for murder of Joffrey with those actions.

    his interactions with Joffrey were golden! that kid needed to be taught a lesson

    6 hours ago, Hrulj said:

    He thinks money can buy friends and lovers rather than see that people are with him for said money and is shocked when a whore doesn't love him and sacrifice her own life to save him from his own idiocy. Or that a mercenary doesn't throw it all away for his sake.

    that's more upsetting than anything

    He gave the Vale to littlefinger for no gain. Vale was and has remained neutral. 

    yeah , but his sister and father both would have done the same thing.. which is a problem with them all..they are too proud to see someone like LF might have his own agenda

    6 hours ago, Hrulj said:

    Hardly. His sister is worse off but his father is a great man

    oh boy! that misogynist monster? ! I have to make another post about that!

    Maybe this belongs more in the small questions thread, but what is the difference between squires and men-at-arms?

    as far as I've realized , squires are in training to become knights and are in personal service to knights . men-at-arms are like hired fighters whose contracts, unlike sellswords , are permanent.

    Tyrion is dark. He set Aegon on a self destructive path. 

    he was more of a good guy in book one but he is getting darker each book. I'd like to mention that his train of thoughts as he was manipulating Aegon was interesting, considering he had not yet decided what his own agenda is (he hadn't even if he wants to live yet!)  and was merely playing with him: " There, that’s made him good and angry "

    That dirty deed was done by Mance Rayder.  The wildling killed another guest.

    no, it was Big Walder

     

    Quote
    "My brother Merrett's son." Hosteen Frey lowered the body to the floor before the dais. "Butchered like a hog and shoved beneath a snowbank. A boy."
    Little Walder, thought Theon. The big one. He glanced at Rowan. There are six of them, he remembered. Any of them could have done this. But the washerwoman felt his eyes. "This was no work of ours," she said.
    Quote

    "And Little Walder was a piglet. Killing him brought the Freys and Manderlys to dagger points, that was cunning, you—"
    "Not us." Rowan grabbed him by the throat and shoved him back against the barracks wall, her face an inch from his. "Say it again and I will rip your lying tongue out, kinslayer."

    He is a smart little guy.  He was the smartest boy in Winterfell during his fostership.

    smart little monster you mean!

    • Cersei killed her best friend for fear of a prophecy at the age of 10.
    • Big Walder killed his cousin as a means to elevate himself in line of succession at the age of 8-9 . 

    I wonder how this one will turn out...
