  1. I've always thought that the island of Dragonstone and it's volcano hasn't yet had it's rocks eroded sufficiently into the fertile soil. The description of it lends to it still being an active geographic zone, not quiet enough to have evolved into good farm land. It seems the Spears of the Merling King in Blackwater Bay are more of a comparison to Dragonstone than the island of Driftmark, in substance anyway, if not size.
  2. OMG!! I thought the title question of this thread was: Is Tyrion INFANTILE??? LOLOL I was ready to read all kinds of interesting posts, and perhaps......toss out some thoughts of my own. Lawd, he can be a bit infantile, especially in ASOS, but, as Gilda Radner would say: NEVERMIND!!
  3. Ha, that was a fun read. I cannot imagine watching those shit seasons for the first time, NOW, but damn, thanks for sharing. It really is astounding how awfully, awful GOT really did become.
  4. I expect, like the recent HotD articles coming out, we'll hear even more interesting comments. Sorry it took me so long to respond. I'm in and out of here a lot, don't post much because Real Life is a bit crazy and will be for awhile, I think. I am going to watch HotD (or try), but I'm sorry, I think Daemon Targaryen should have a bit of sex appeal, and I don't expect I will change my mind on Dr. Who, LOL
  5. When I first read the "Drunken lout" idea for Aegon I in that article, I was a bit confused as well as a bit pissed off, but reading the above posts put together has changed my mind. I cannot think past the idea of Aegon I as a Targ version of past his prime Robert Baratheon, but now, The God Force Seven.......really does sound like Pulp Fiction's Uma Thurman's Mia Wallace talking about her failed pilot of Fox Force Five? (was it), and now, I really can't help but LMAO. Still, I'm not sure which is more ridiculous of an idea? Seven Save Us All, but how did such STUPID ideas get any airing with HBO??
  6. So, no one is talking about GRRM's latest Winds post? I found it on Twitter a little while ago. It's a lot of talk and thought about Winds, and even GOT, that's for sure, LOLOL I'm almost impressed with just the amount of info in it. Of course, you couldn't pay me to expect anything, though, HA https://georgerrmartin.com/notablog/2022/07/08/a-winter-garden/
  7. Cersei chapters should come with a gift card to Bed, Bath, and Beyond.......as they usually leave me feeling the need for a shower.
  8. I think Jeor wanted to a.....make a difference, and b.....get away from all his women relatives on Bear Island. I say the second part half jokingly but half seriously, too.
  9. HI!! I saw you post a couple times and was going to say HI, but I've had a crazy few weeks and thought I might not do it justice......but: HELLO!! It is a damn shame. The funny thing is.....I can forget about the show, for the most part, remember how I do love so many characters, would like some answers, some resolution, but also: I do wonder if I'm better off without it, HA What limbo would be worse: Limbo now, or limbo after Winds? I think that's where I'm at, and ck worry about being left in limbo after Winds.....when I'm okay now, is maybe the only thing that makes me think we MIGHT get Winds, someday. Murphy's Law and all. I just think it's best to look at it this way. I get something I do, I don't..then I don't. I certainly can't do anything about it, right? (Luckily, I backbuttoned out of your quotes, not my response. Sorry about that)
  10. LOL I passed the bargaining one about getting Winds and living without ADOS a long time ago. No doubt, I'd like to get Winds, I had come to acceptance I won't get Dream, basically.....but now, I think I've back tracked to just about accepting (believing and being ok with) not even getting Winds at this point. I do, I do, I don't I don't.
  11. LOL You're a tease. I am just playing, it's cool to know there is a definite answer to how all the dragons look. Still, what a tease.
  12. I don't think Tyrek's abduction could have anything to do with Tywin and Ice and a King/Lannister sacrifice. Tyrek disappears while Tywin is still at war in the Riverlands and Illyn Payne still has possession of ICE. Tywin doesn't hit King's Landing until the very end of ACOK. It seems to me it's after the Battle of Blackwater Bay, during Tyrion's infirmity, that is the first chance for Tywin to get the sword ICE from Payne.
  13. LOLOL Me, too. That is the main problem with that name.
  14. Gatehouse Ami was asking Jaime to stay and have an affair with her, and Jaime knew that.
  15. I thought they'd make Podrick "Master of Whores" then again, maybe I (and Bran, and the show) should have given Bronn my member titles. Titles, titles, titles..........
  16. I was wondering if anyone has seen anything on this; what I was greeted with in the 'trending' category earlier this morning on Twitter. I did check out this link from ScreenRant, although the quotes are from an original story/interview in NYT that Dinklage did promoting his new work in the new movie Cyrano. I thought I saw more quotes in a People mag write up, too, but as i said, it's from a NYT article, and I haven't decided whether to burn one of my freebie articles on it yet, LOL I really am a bit surprised at some of Dinklage's continuing attitude. It's as if he refuses to accept that it could be we are dissatisfied with the crappy product that D&D gave us. That perhaps, we even felt bad for him.....for not getting to play the real Tyrion in all his three dimensional dysfunction instead of being stuck with St. Tyrion who is so special but still too stupid to see the problems with hiding in the crypts from zombie inducing and producing bad guys. He really just seems to want to forget that D&D robbed him of playing a terrific part and just defaults to......ha, but it has dragons, what do you expect? I'm not sure I get it, his point, anyway, other than....he'd like to have to stop answering for the mess. (I tried bold and italic for some, but the on and off functions weren't cooperating, ahhhhhhh) Here;s the screen rant link: https://screenrant.com/game-thrones-ending-backlash-peter-dinklage-response/?utm_content=buffer13b97&utm_medium=Social-Distribution&utm_source=SR-TW&utm_campaign=SR-TW
  17. Cersei has the pyromancers burn the entire Tower of The Hand in AFFC, without it even getting to Maegor's Keep. I'm not sure why pyromancers couldn't produce a wildfire execution in the giant throne room without burning the place down. This is from the wiki here: After the wedding feast of King Tommen I Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell is held in the Small Hall, Cersei leads the guests outside to watch as the pyromancers set the Tower of the Hand on fire. Fifty pots of wildfire placed inside the tower along with logs and casks of pitch are set alight. The Tower of the Hand is ruined. The greater part of Tyrion's possessions, which were still in the tower, are also destroyed.[1] I admit, I hadn't noticed the lack of the word 'wildfire' in certain places when discussions and thoughts of Aery's burnings came up throughout the novels, but still, I wouldn't doubt that Aerys did use wildfire, too. I would think the executions with the green goo is what lead to the idea of burning the whole city down with it, like a serial killer upping his game.
  18. I've always taken a sword from a falling star to be more so reminiscent of King's Tut blade of iron, believed to be from a meteorite. I can't be the only one that thinks of that instead of other fantasy/sci-fi/comic inventions, can I? Dawn has always reminded me of the blade found in King Tut's tomb, thinking it a nod to real history.
  19. If there is one continuity to choose, and one to lose, it's GOT's that I'd have second thoughts on........I'm all for just forgetting lots of their mistakes, like Dany and the Iron Fleet. Forgetting all of that works for me.
  20. These issues is why I do find the idea very messy, the changing of the Velaryon family. I fear I will find myself too much over thinking it. The addition of questions on the paternity of Rhaenyra's children, along with the known traits of past, present, and future Targs specifically, and Valyrians generally, give me pause. Granted, if we have other families of Valyrian ancestry with differing skin colors.......maybe it won't be so, so messy, story line wise, but.......... I'd like to be wrong, I'd like to just enjoy it, so I'm open to it, but not counting on it. HA! This brings me back to my original post this morning: WHERE ARE MY DRAGONS?????????? (yeah, yeah, I know, they are somewhere in post production) I had seen some artistic conceptions, I thought that were show associated, and well, let's just say it worried me. GOT did pretty good with the dragons, although they did lose a lot of color over the years, it seemed. Then again, so did everything on that show, it got so dark one couldn't see much of anything. The dragon bodies and effects, though, were spectacular. No need to change much, just some color, and, I guess, some interesting jaw set for Vermithor. I am looking forward to seeing some of the dragons, Caraxes especially.
  21. Thanks for the answer. I was wondering on the finger count, should I include the thumb? and, of course, wondering what it could be about. I had noticed some of the Wild Card posts that GRRM had made, but there are many more of those books, so.......I kind of ruled that out. I hadn't thought of adding up all current projects, there could be something to that. Whatever it is, hopefully he feels good about it, and we'll find out eventually.
  22. I did like the scenes of Matt from the trailer, it's just difficult for me to think of Dr. Who having any, shall we say, sexual attractiveness, that being a trait I associate with Daemon. In the past, he's always just been one of the Dr. Who's to me. I may change my mind on the sexual charisma part, we'll see. Smith did have a good Targ vibe in general for the teaser, though. Alyssa is not the only Velaryon back on the family tree, iirc correctly.......Aegon and his sisters were born of a Velaryon mother. I can't help but wonder how many more are back there in the Targ family tree, not to mention how many will appear again in the Targ family post Dance of Dragons. I'm just hoping whatever story the show tells about this, it's good enough to make me forget all I do know when it comes to the makeup of the families. I hope I don't find myself watching it and thinking "Damn, it would have made more sense to just add another family." Too much thinking about the written story in comparison to the visual story.......will just take me out of it, and THAT is my main concern with it.
  23. So, with the release of a House of The Dragon teaser, it made me wonder if we have any other type of GRRM news. I went to the Not A Blog and found this latest post, only photographic. https://georgerrmartin.com/notablog/ Any ideas what it could be.
  24. I've mostly stayed out of commenting, discussing, even over thinking on the Velaryons or Corlys being black, half black, with or without white hair that is also done up in dreadlocks because regardless of my thoughts nothing I say will change it. But, simply put, the mental gymnastics that ensue thanks to this change make it seem like not a great idea. From the beginning, I'd thought that if they wanted to introduce black families or characters of Valyrian descent, perhaps they should have just plopped down a whole new family in the middle of Blackwater Bay? It's the generational mix of Targs and Velaryons that make it so......messy, especially when it comes to the marriage of Rhaenyra and Laenor, it then all becomes extra, extra messy. It's not like anything I think or say will change how it went down, but I hope that IF I do get into watching HOUSE, I'm taken out of the questions on this. One of the best performances I ever had the pleasure of seeing on stage was Laurence Fishburne as King Henry II in The Lion in Winter with a mixed race cast (blind, not acknowledged), and the acting (and story, of course) were so good that the racial change was forgotten in moments. Stockard Channing as Eleanor was terrific as well, but again, House of The Dragon is doing this differently, so........ It's hard to have trust in the whole thing MAKING SENSE (that is all I want, things to make sense), and past experiences with Game of Thrones makes it hard to trust that too much rewriting without a good reason is a good idea. I hope I'm wrong to wonder. I hope that the story presented and the actors make it easy to forget. It's the past generational mixing of the Targ and Velaryons that leave me with questions on if the change is going to work.........and that long ago mixing of the families over and over again is what makes me think, perhaps, just creating a new family and dropping them in the vicinity of Dragonstone and Driftmark might have been a better idea. Then again, no one pays for my ideas, LOL, so again, I hope it does go well, for everyone. Hell, I'm still trying to get over Dr. Who as Daemon, that to me is the bigger question, LOL He just doesn't seem to have the Daemon Targ vibes that I have imagined, but that's me.
