    sansa, arya, and dany

    For the thousand time I've written this, but still....and then get screwed by the incredibly increaed WW army herself, when they come South. The only idiot is Cersei. Daenerys (luckily for mankind) is less an idiot. The girls will get along, no doubt. Daenerys is not what Sansa wishes to be...Sansa wishes to be home (yes, she would be a wonderful Lady of Winterfell). Daenerys has no home and all she wanted until recently was IT. The Starks (and it was stupid that Jon did) should not bend the knee to Daenerys. They should be alleys - yes. Jon is surely at least an equal. Anyway, I do not think Daenerys is fit to rule anywhere. If (and the word IF speaks volumes) she ever breaks the wheel, then I will believe she is fit, but so far she has just been power-hungry self-righteous conqueror, well...until Jon came and changed her mind that cost HER a dragon, her child as she calls them.

    The younger, more beautiful queen . . .

    I'll talk about books since in the show it is not even mentioned properly. Book Sansa is more Queen material than Marg is, was or would be in any chapter (in the show they made Marg cunning and liberated, but in the books she wasn't prettier or particularly smarter than Sansa; if Sansa had someone like Lady Olenna helping her, I think she would be even more successful than Marg). In the books Marg is more plain character than in the show (I do not particularly like her neither in the book nor show). In fact, Tyrion described Sansa just as good-looking as Marg and thought that Joffrey was a fool and that Sansa would become a good queen, even better than Marg. Tyrion called Sansa beautiful and she was just a young girl developing then. The thing is - Cersei never saw Sansa as the one, because Sansa was helpless and her prisoner, while (in the books) Marg still has Tyrell power behind her back and that's the reason she thinks it is Marg. And yes, Dany is the obvious one and it is about her- she is more beautiful queen, more beautiful than Cersei, that is. She is one of the main characters anyway. As for Dany being "the most beautiful woman in the world"...most of Lys share the same look, even baseborn slaves... There are few incredibly beautiful Lysene woman in the story that were brought to Westeros as wives and paramours (one of which is Dany's own direct ancestor). In fact, Lys's pleasure houses and whores are famous for that, so "the most beautiful woman" is just an exaggeration... Dany's attractiveness is increased by her personality and dragons, which is unique, no doubt, and she is well publicized - let's not forget about that. Anyway, "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder". P.S: In the books we also have Arianne Martell, who is a princess and is definitely a beauty. She could easily become a queen in the next book and be the one from Cersei's prophecy, although, I doubt it: in the end it is all about Daenerys.
  3. Do not remember anything in the show about her period, but in the books she had her periods, I suppose, since she had miscarriage in the end of Dance and thought it was her period, which she was missing for some time.
  4. Actually, the official version of the events is that she was kidnapped and raped - the event that lead to Brandon and Rickard's deaths and their deaths lead to other events in turn - and Bran has just discovered that she actually ran off and even married the prince on her own will. That's why he said "based on lie". It all has started with her "kidnapping and raping". Aerys, being the biggest idiot and a madman, just put some oil on small fire and it burst out.
  5. Read the Dunk and Egg stories- Aegon V (Dany's great-grandfather) has the same (I mean literally the same - hot bath, sun, hot stones) heat resistance, but, unfortunately, he died in the fire while trying to hatch dragons. It seems that Dany survived because of blood magic and not because of her fireproof abilities.
  6. Richon is even younger than Bran, so no. Arya could just assume that Jon has taken up Stark name and got married. That is a possibility, but anyway, I personally think that she just didn't know that Sansa was alive and in Winterfell that's why she asked "which Lady Stark". Or else it is absolutely meaningless scene - bad writing

    Do not forget the Sacking of King's Landing and Elia Martell and her children...and also using monsters like the Mountain for his cause.

    Apparently, I didn't get it at all. Since this is a forum...I am allowed to state my opinion...And English is not even my second language, so I guess, if I violated any rules, I do apologise, but not to you- to a person I wrote that reply in the first place. I am not arguing that Cersei is not bad. She definitely is, I just think that they all want Dany to be better than that. Jon actually told Dany this when they first met "...which means at very least you're better than Cersei..." For now Dany is not mad, just power-hungry, while Cersei has already gone past the power-hungry part to complete madness.

    You probably didn't listen at all: Jon told her not to melt and burn castles and cities - TO BE BETTER THAN THIS, otherwise, she would the same as Cersei, as well would be the same as almost all her crazy ancestors (starting with her father and ending with Maegor the Cruel). Using dragons on the battlefield is appropriate, for both people to fear you and to be at least decent conqueror as Aegon and his sisters were. The same thing Tyrion and Varys (gods know, they are able to use any means for their purpose) have been telling her - not to be a savage tyrant. It is quite enough that she brought savages like Dothraki to Westeros - it is already not in her favour among both nobility and smallfolk, which is understandable and natural.

    I am not sure whether it was in the show or not, but there was a pact between the Children and the First men (Night's Watch) - the Children provided dragonglass. I presume they knew where to find it. Also, the drawings could be made by humans, by the First men and not actually by the Children, they share history and blood, I think (all skinchanging and greenseeing).

    Why does everyone assumes Davos is hitting on Missandei?! I think he tries to break the ice as advisor of the king with advisor of the queen. Considering how unemotional, solemn and silent Misssandei is - it is quite appropriate.I didn't see any flirting at all. I also think he was mocking everything Missandei said a little bit
  12. Well, I do not know whether he speaks it or not. He is a smart man, he could have learnt some Dothraki. Anyway, Tyrion acted as if he understood what that man said. "Once the throne is secured" you said, so you presume that Dany won't use any soldiers against WW? I doubt that she will get IT before the Long Night and the Army of the Dead comes.
  13. Am I the only one who felt sorry for Tyrion. And since I despise Dothraki as a culture, I didn't like the comment that smug idiot said to Tyrion. I really hope they find out very soon what winter means. I hope the wildlings could be able to show them what fighting means. I'm not completely fond of the wildlings either, but in comparison... At least among wildling we had real personalities, not just stupid superstitious flock. All those people who keep saying that Dany would defeat WW and thier army alone...just imagine completely unprepared southern army like Dothraki and Unsullied during winter storms. Even 3 dragons won't help. As Old Nan said "oh, my sweet summer child...what do you know of..."
  14. To be fair, it was Jojen who insisted over and over again on Bran going to Three eyed crow, North of the Wall, in the first place. She went to help her feeble brother, not Bran. And when her own brother sacrificed himself - it was his desicion and Bran wasn't glad about that as well - she didn't want even to help Bran. And now she is complaining, as if everything was Bran's fault. Really, what could he tell her to make her feel better about herself - she is depressed since her brother was killed by the wight. Although, yes Bran became creepy emotionless, considering how emotional he always was. Yes, the scene is painful, but it was necessary to show us that Bran "died" in that cave. I suspect Hodor incident changed him completely. I think he made a huge mistake there and then, which was neccessary for him to learn the main thing about being the Great Greenseer - do not mess with the past and do not intervene. Do you remember how pitifully Bloodraven looked at him when they "visited" Winterfall and he learnt about Hodor being called Walder, as if he knew that something like that would happen. I liked Max von Sydow in this role, by the way.
