    [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    I was in the middle of writing a huge theory based on Loras giving up Storm's End to Aegon... you saved me some embarrassment.

    [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    Has it ever been theorized that Loras yields Storm's End to Aegon? Or has GRRM promised we'd see some fightin'?

    Appearance aside, this guy doesn't give good vibes.

    [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    The rumor about Jon raping Red Ronnet's sister and killed his brother is a lie, right? The rape most certainly didn't happen and I dont recall Jon saying he lost a relative in the fighting

    [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    Her flaw is that she acts on misinformation. She thinks she knows what's going on but she never knows the full story. This is one of her thoughts from the sample chapter: She seems to believe Dany had Viserys killed which is wrong. She may believe Dany is also responsible for Quentyn's death which would also be wrong. If all of her misconceptions about Daenerys encourages her to marry Aegon and join his rebellion then no, she hasn't learned anything. When she hears Quentyn was killed by a dragon, she should wait for more information. It's what Doran would do. I don't see her being patient, however.

    It wouldn't be the first time she decided to hate someone over misinformation. Oberyn really messed things up for Doran by getting himself killed. Arianne and the Sand Snakes have no business playing this game. Let's hope Trystane amounts to something because this generation of Martells aren't worth much.

    From what I know of screenwriting: conflict creates character. She can't have an easy time because that would be boring to watch. It's likely she will be captured and Drogon will be too busy licking his wounds to help her. She has to answer for her part in Drogo's death. She certainly doesn't look happy to see this khalasar. Remember: Rakharo was killed by a rival band of Dothraki.

    Thoros resurrected Beric by taking flames into his mouth and giving Beric a kiss. It's something the red priest do for the dead but in this case Beric came back to life.

    Yeah! I wonder what they'll plagiarize this time. :dunno:

    Obviously Jon was going to get stabbed but I expected it to happen next season, episode 2. Renly and Joffrey died during episode 2. Figured they toss in some more foreshadowing by having another king die during episode 2. It will be hard to keep his eventual return a secret during filming.

    The show - in its own way - has brought us right to where we are in the books. Cliffhangers galore. There were spoilers, sure, but they were only confirmations of theories with enough evidence behind them that they felt like canon. The deaths of minor characters can be easily dismissed. We can rejoice because this can only mean the Winds of Winter will be published before season 6 airs.

    Hmm. I finally read that interview. The quote makes more sense in context:

    Definitely the pacing. The pacing is terrible, hands down. We're supposed to believe Stannis and his men are starving and they have no options. That is why we get that tiny tidbit of a scene where his men are lining up to get meager portions of soup for their meals. I agree that Mel should have done it behind his back but I think the writers are trying to show us something by having Stannis be the one to order her death. Still, we needed to see him in more dire straits for it to be more understanding. Even though I get his reasons why he did it, I think the show should have had him suffer longer than he did. Even though it has been set up for several seasons, when it comes down to it, it felt rushed.

    I thought it was because without better conditions they would not survive the march. Or that they couldn't march at all. Basically, it was his life or hers.

    Elmo, Kermit, and Grover Tully. I need not say anymore on that.

    When you have a zombie hand in a jar, you don't keep it a secret until it decays in a jar and is of no worth to anyone. Why didn't Ser Allister run straight to Winterfell with what he had or to any northern castle? How come no one saw the dead hand before he got to King's Landing? Let's see how many excuses you can come up with to make this make sense. There are still survivors from the Fist of the First Men at Castle Black. The watch knows the Others exist. There's absolutely nothing wrong with how Jon acted. There's no need to rush and tell them what they already know. Exactly. Agreed. What else could have attacked the wildlings? More wildlings?

    It seems that degree is needed to understand rhetorical questions, however.

    This is fan fiction and it is not allowed on the forums.

    Exactly. What was the point of selling the rights to books you havent even finished? When you know it takes you a long time to complete just one of them and you had two (or more!) to go? He could have finished the books and then sold the rights so that way he would have more time to help work on the tv series. But he didnt so we're stuck with this and all of the passive-agressing shade throwing doesnt mean jack. It's his fault. Nope. We discussed this last week. They want all the threads and there's nothing we can do about it. They hate the show that much.

    The Damphair's part is too small. And, really? Victarion "lovable dumb"? He beats his wife to death, keeps a tongueless woman as a whore and smacks her, on occassion. He doesnt care Kerwin gets raped (later has him killed), hates homosexuals, and he burns several young women alive.

    All signs point to yes, she will be seducing Meryn Trant. In this way, the show is better than the books because I dont have to envision a 12 year old macking on an old dude.
