  5. Perhaps he creates his greatest pie of all....a labor of love. Sweetened with Honey, blackberries, cherries. Then he is forced to plunge his hands into the Uberpie to pull forth Piebringer

  6. A bag of dragons buys a man's silence for a while, but a well-placed quarrel buys it forever

    The future of Jaime and Brienne?

    Maybe i am to much a romantic in this one instance(I consider romeo + juliet a tragedy not a romance) I really think Brienne + Jamies sacrifice for each other is what finally moves Thoros to sack up. I really like the idea of Jamie completing his journey from golden prince in love with a golden princess to losing everything...rallying back....and leading an outlaw band with his unactractive lady to try and undo some of the damage of his father. I just don't think Stonehands has that in her. So i think she leaves on her own....maybe to go Lych style and raise an undead army from the riverlands to march upon the Twins. That i would liek to read :drool:

    The future of Jaime and Brienne?

    The short version: Brienne yells sword.....goes to get Jamie.....leads him back but tells him why......Stoneheart forces them to fight Thunderdome style to the amusement of the brothers without Banners. Jamie refuses and tells Brienne to finish him.......Brienne throws down oathkeeper and does the same......Thoros steps in and says enough is enough Stoneheart is crazy and she was always a crappy leader even as Catlyn....Stoneheart sees the tide turning and runs off screaching to cause further damage later in the story.....Jamie takes his lady in 1 1/2 arms. I ship it.

    [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    Perhap because of the caves this was also a location special to the children and they were able to protect it in some way?
  13. I think it will be more then Just Walder. This is guest rights we are talking...a more henious taboo then incest/and canibalism. HIS WHOLE CLAN is going down. I just hope like with Vyseres and Joffery George is able to nail the level of death required for these vile Fuks
  14. What is they are forced to fight....but Jamie refuses to fight. Just takes a knee. Then Breinne does the same.....Stoneheart keeps forcing the issue. Thats when Thoros/Lem/BWB step in and say enough.

    Fantasy and SF Recommendations: Series

    Ok so many...several of these have been mentioned maybe all :) Heavy Hitters Tolkein- I don't often read High Fantasy...but when i do....it's Tolkein. Frank Herbert - Dune is the ultimate in political intrigue Sci FI. It's sets the standard and has been covered about as many times as Tolkein and the Beatles. (see Robert Jordan) Issac Asimov- Foundation series like Dune is so different from anything that came before it it sets the standard going forward. Dark and Gritty just how i like it Brent Weeks- Both Night Angel and Black Prism are a little fast placed action movie made novel for my tastes...but they are fun, nasty, and move at the speed of sound. The characters are interesting and have a cool different take on magic. Glen Cook- All of the Black Company series are a lot of fun. I love the mixture of band of brother military campaign mixed with some magic and intrigue. The characters are cool, you feel invested in them and feel it when he mercilessly bumps one off...and he does this without pause. Joe Ambercrombie- A young major rockstar in Scifi fantasy and for good reason. The first law trilogy is a perfect blend of the journey of Tolkein with the gritty brutality of Martin. I also love the way he uses his stand alone books as extensions of his world without playing out his major characters from the trilogy past the jump the shark point(Again see Robert Jordan) Phillip Pullman- He is the anti-C.S. Lewis. What is someone had the sheer testicular fortitude to turn C.S. Lewis use of pagan mythology as a means to indoctrinate children back on him using Atheist ideals in a young adults story with talking animals and steampunk. Pullman did just that. The movie has nothing to do with this awesome world with a distinct personality and one of the greatest showing of sheer gall ever in a novel. (C.S. Lewis was awesome when i was a kid and still a worthy writer...just acknowledging Pullman's nerve in writting a novel for kids that attacked the church.) Jim Butcher- The Dresden files doesn't deserve any pulitzer awards. However it's witty, sharp, has an interesting take on several common monster stories. It also has a fantastic audiobook version read by James Marsters(Spike from Buffy the vampire slayer) Brian Lumley- Titus Crow series is British Author Lumley's take on the HP Lovecraft mythos. It has a bit of Over Adrenalized Scientists Dan Brown thing going....but still fun in spite of that. Amin Maalouf- Balthasars Odyssey is a fun historical fiction meets religious mythology. Very well written and well researched to help bring the historical aspects to life. I could go on but this is definitely the top of the list :)
