    Small Questions v. 10106

    It’s quite good. Hopefully she’ll link it here as I’m too sleepy and lazy at the mo to look for the link myself.

    Yes. Coz he killed him and “sausaged” him. @sweetsunray has a good essay on it.

    Can you see how very confusing this statement is?

    What are Jon's reasons to fight his warg nature?

    No, it doesn’t. Varamyr’s prologue gives us a good view of Varamyr, mostly. And how he is the exception, not the rule. IRT the bold, how on earth planetos can you know that? Answer is, you can’t. But your head canon tells you so, therefore it must be gospel. No. No, no, no, no. Varamyr is the creep he is b/c he is a creep. He is a disgusting creep long before he takes Haggon’s wolf and the other animals. Jeez Louise, Martin literally spells it out: he killed his brother just b/c he could and it amused him. And, as I’ve said, that happened before he was sent to Haggon, and killing his brother was actually what made his parents send him to Haggon. “Normal” doesn’t exist. What’s normal to one person may be incredibly abnormal to another.

    Yeah, me too. Then again, in all fairness, I’ve never really watched a game of AF. My American boss assures me it’s awesome and much better than football, but he doesn’t know the 1st thing about football. I really love watching a great football match... not that we get that many of those, but still. It’s not unlike a great basketball game, totally jaw-dropping, the level of skill is absolutely amazing. I’m not the best person to comment on this, seeing that I really don’t know, but this seems accurate... AF is not a thing anywhere but the US, right? (on a sports side note... I always wanted to watch a baseball game live. I only know it from clips and films and such, but it looks beautiful and hopefully one day I will fulfill my dream. Red Sox beating... someone, if I can be picky. But I always thought it’s hilarious how the championship is called World Series, since no one but the US plays? )

    Seriously, I have no idea where any of this is coming from. Well, that’s a lie, I do know. It’s ALL from the prologue in ADwD, but you’re extrapolating and making Varamyr’s situation = ALL SKINCHANGERS EVERYWHERE. And that is pure bollocks.

    Really? Good man. This is the 1st time I’ve heard (or rather read) of an American calling it American football. Don’t mean to pry, but why do you call it AF?

    So this is not a confession exactly. Well, it is, but not an ASoIaF confession... Can someone explain where the hell did the word “soccer” come from? WTAF. Yanks invent a game that is a variation on rugby (maybe? I don’t care for either, so), appropriate the word “football”, and come up w/ something totally weird and meaningless to rename football with? Huh? ETA: soccer doesn’t exist. There’s football (the proper one, played w/ the foot and a ball), and there’s American football, played w/ the hand and an oval shaped object.

    What are Jon's reasons to fight his warg nature?

    All Stark kids are skinchangers, and Bloodraven tells Bran, “Only one man in a thousand is born a skinchanger,” Lord Brynden said one day, after Bran had learned to fly, “and only one skinchanger in a thousand can be a greenseer.” So, Jon, Sansa, Arya, and Rickon are “one in one thousand”, and Bran is one in one thousand thousand.

    Most likeable child character?

    I like all on your list, and I’ll add Bran, Shireen, and Ned Dayne.

    What are Jon's reasons to fight his warg nature?

    Yup, Martin has confirmed this years ago, all Stark kids are skinchangers, to varying degrees. Q: Are all the Stark children wargs/skin changers with their wolves? GRRM: To a greater or lesser degree, yes, but the amount of control varies widely.

    Very much disagree here. The quote you provided does nothing to prove that Jon isn’t “happy about it”.

    What are Jon's reasons to fight his warg nature?

    And yet, even though we have some of Jon’s thoughts on the matter we never, not once, get anything even close to this. The rest is just assumptions. Same here, assumptions and more assumptions, since we don’t actually see anything remotely close to what you say. Also, Orelll and Borroq seem to be well integrated into ff society, it’s only Varamyr that is ostracised, and that’s more b/c he’s a nasty creep rather than a skinchanger.
  14. I wholeheartedly disagree w/ basically all you said. And here, nope, I am not. I based what I said in my understanding of the text, and the fact that Littlefinger is a disgusting creepy paedo. In the books. In the abomination he was just a disgusting moron who never really accomplished anything.

    Was Jaime molesting Cersei?

    There is nothing in the text that supports this, as far as I recall. Not from Cersei’s memories nor Jaime’s. In fact, she comes across as the more active pursuer, and I think this instance is just a bit of unreliable narration.
