  1. This is like blaming your 4 year old daughter for your own divorce. Many very sad ideas running through this thread. Duskendale.That was mainly adults.Showed a disrespect to King,realigned some lords,reinforced Aerys in his madness etc.
  2. Probably from the context of the thread title. So back on track I would say the Darklyn defiance was very pivotal. A hinge.
  3. No doubt she was dumb around then.Children frequently are, I find ,especially in emotional and political matters.Call me sentimental but, I don't blame children for doing childish things nor would I hold them accountable as a causus belli. Nor would anyone else in the history of the world ever. Only you.
  4. Joffrey did not kill her pet.It was those nasty adults.Ned by deed.Robert by decree.Cersei by suggestion. Those were at least paramount in the head of the pre pubescent girl we're discussing. ETA Just to remind ya'll are we really blaming it all on Sansa?For fucking real??

    An Evil Name

    Does choosing to defend thousands of human beings as opposed to a giant ice cube make you an anti hero? I suppose it does! Wasn't there something in the oath about the "realms of men?".

    [TWOW Spoilers] Alayne I, v. 3

    Here is one thread.I like the theory for the most part.Not so sure about Byron and Morgarth.

    [TWOW Spoilers] Alayne I, v. 3

    That sounds fantastic, but it doesn't make a jot of sense."Since no Lannister........." sounds like a rule that a pair of three year olds would make up in the playground.There is no such rule. That aside I think Shadrich's role is being underplayed,since he could well be Howland Reed.

    Interesting thought regarding NissaNissa

    It's an example of sorcery shaping nearby celestial events to me.

    Heresy 227 and the Great Turtle

    Much as I dissed F&B as a book I think a decent TV show could be made of it.The first essential is that they hire a good team of writers.As in a team with a background in period/fantasy.Just one or two writers won't work as history has shown. I too am disappointed Bloodmoon has been canned.It could have addressed issues of value to Heresy types.I don't know if she can get another tv company interested.If not we may get to see the pilot or screenplay eventually.

    His Dark Materials Series

    Fuck this.Waiting an entire 7 days to see the next instalment of something you know is going to be good? No.Not falling for that one. Except,of course,I am. Loving it.Great to see Kevan,Jeor and Sallador too! ETA I believe a thorough reread+ is indicated.

    Chess - the world in black and white

    A fairly crushing win for Wesley.13.5-2.5. See what I did there Star Trek fans? So does this mean So is better than Carlsen in active calculation scenarios?

    Football: dropping clangers and scoring bangers

    Brilliant result. Front 3 off their game for the most part. Biggest positive for me is that Ox and maybe Keita look ready now for prime consideration in first team selection.

    Heresy 227 and the Great Turtle

    Yes it is.Some minor embellishments.Someone steals some dragon eggs and sails off into the Sunset Sea. Probably.RLJ should be dead since it's been accepted canon by any one who hasn't got huge denial issues since 1996.

    Heresy 227 and the Great Turtle

    Any of you read Fire and Blood? I'm trying to do so at the moment. Kind of out of a sense of duty and in the forlorn hope that there may be some pertinent stuff in there. There isn't. And it's a very tedious read.I could not tell my Aemons from my Aemonds or my Daemons nor did I particularly want to. A slightly embroidered family tree of a not very interesting family.

    Chess - the world in black and white

    A big lead for So now-10.5 to 1.5.Three wins in a row.Doubt that's happened to Carlsen very often. But of course it's not over yet..

    An Evil Name

    I think you'll find that's a way too sensible interpretation for our resident Stark haters to stomach.It will be voted down an their local incel meetings.

    Chess - the world in black and white

    Nice little advantage for So v Carlsen in the FRC final.The second game seems to have been a good one in many ways. Anyhow,what y'all reckon to FRC as a game/format?
