  1. I presume Argella had a miserable life married to her father's murderer/her rapist.

    [SPOILERS] The Regency of Aegon III

    yeah, the repeating instances of cool sister vs dull sister got very dull.

    Regarding Planetos

    Werthead is brilliant.

    Targaryen princess who doesn't want to marry her brother in F&B v2

    you know it's funny: IRL women find incest more problematic than men & are significantly less likely to initiate it.

    The Family Traditions of House Bolton (Theory)

    Barba Bolton shows that there are female Boltons. Perhaps the family tendency towards sociopathy does keep the number of Boltons low, though it doesn't seem to have applied to Barba.

    The Shivers

    Wouldn't it have been seen in White Harbour first? This makes it almost sound like Stephen King.

    So what was Criston Cole's deal?

    this is something that bothers me: Gyldayn claims that Mushroom had a great affection for Rhaenyra, but his stories about her are so hypersexualised/gross. Like who could Aegon 3 & Viserys 2 have not been furious that their old court jester wrote unflattering pornography about their mother. As an aside, does anyone think that Rhaenyra's more irrational behaviour stems from childhood sexual abuse at Daemon's hands, leading to complex PTSD?
  8. Right: and though Gyldayn has ambiguities he can provide context beyond "tall man kissing woman", you would have to have read all of Dunk & Egg books to know that's Old Nan.

    [spoiler] Larys Strong

    Perhaps he didn't like his own family (observe Aeron Greyjoy's dislike of Euron, Tyrion's dislike of Tywin) so that's why he remained a Green loyalist after Aemond killed his entire family. He could also have really hated Daemon

    The Book of Swords - The Sons of the Dragon SPOILERS

    The sheer numbers of people involved in such a conspiracy would render it impossible. http://www.popularmechanics.com/science/a19150/most-conspiracy-theories-are-mathematically-impossible/ And it would be even harder to run such a conspiracy for thousands of years. I think we need to accept that a side affect of incest is poor health, reduced fertility etc. Occam's Razor rather 'elaborate conspiracy of Septon's and Maesters'

    The Book of Swords - The Sons of the Dragon SPOILERS

    Perhaps the Green Grace is being dishonest: since it is the opposite of the Islamic ruling on other people's marriages. Given that Slaver's Bay is the equivalent of the Barbary States of North Africa (Although perhaps I am taking the analogy to far, religiously the Ghiscari seem to be religiously closer to the Carthaginians, however pagans are usually pretty tolerant of their differences... https://islamqa.info/en/169528 Interestingly, since we are discussing Targaeryn incest, this Islamic website has a very interesting discussion of Magian marriages He replied: With regard to these people who had intercourse when they were still disbelievers, if they believed that this intercourse occurred in the context of a marriage contract that they thought was valid, even though it is invalid according to sharee‘ah, the marriage contract is valid and the children belong to that man. For example, when he was still a disbeliever, a man proposed to a woman that he should be her husband and she agreed, and they thought that this was a marriage contract, then the man and woman became Muslim. We say: Your marriage is still valid and there is no need to repeat the marriage contract, and any children that you had are your children, unless the wife is not permissible for the husband in Islam. An example of that is if he was a Magian and married his sister, as the Magians regard it as permissible to marry mahrams (close relatives). If he married his sister when he was a disbeliever, then he became Muslim and she became Muslim, they must be separated because the woman is not permissible for the man. With regard to the group of people you mention we say: If they believe that what they did of having relationships with these women was a marriage, then it is not zina and the children belong to them. But if you believed that it was zina and you attributed these children to yourself when you were still a disbeliever -- i.e., the zaani said: These are my children -- then they are his children, so long as there is no one to dispute with him on this issue. But if they did not attribute these children to themselves, then they are not their children.
  12. I hope the fifth season gets onto the Mexican cartels, since I don't know much about them. I find that historical dramas are a great jumping off point to historical research.
  13. Just finished. I am glad they are doing a third season with the Cali Cartel. I think looking at the big picture is much more interesting.

    THE PUNISHER now a Netflix series

    Well Jon Bernthal is very hot. Which is a bonus. But would seriously prefer if he patrolled something other than Hell's Kitchen.
  15. surely they use multiple writers?
