    Wow! It seems like an honest mistake was made and in my opinion it shouldn't be such an issue. :o

    The entries this game have been great across the board and I am sure that the host as well as each player has made every effort to do the right thing. I am reminded that we all have made mistakes at one time or another. It is just a game that is supposed to be for fun, after all, and the results aren't world shattering.

    My advice is lighten up! ^_^

    Furthermore it hasn't changed my mind about my enjoyment of the game or my choices for this round, which are as follows:

    1) 5 -  it is the best one this round "E" or no "E" ! :cheers:

    2) 8

    3) 7

    Final observation, for what it is worth, we are all friends here and when a game becomes so contentious perhaps it is time to take a break. Thanks @Dolorous Gabe for stepping in and hosting when I think I was supposed to do it, but since I had never done it before I was hesitant to take charge because I was afraid I might not be as good at it as you. B)

    Was there contention? Maybe the health hoohah put people in a mood?

  2. Season 1: This looks cool. What's going on? What's a Targarian?

    Season 2: This looks cool. What's going on? I guess I'd best read this icy fire thingie. Oh. So why did they do that to Dany and Robb? What's with making Jaime kill that chap?

    Season 3: This is pretty good!

    Season 4: This is pretty good. BUT ...

    Season 5: This is pretty goo... The rationale for Sansa going to Winterfell makes no sense; but it might still be coo... Oh, it wasn't ... Bad WHAT? ... Oh, come ON!

    Season 6: Well, this isn't quite so shocking as last season; but that doesn't make it good ... I like the Jon-Sansa meeting ... The North kinda forgot ... I'm the last thing from a military tactician; but come ON! ... Arya's plot armour is through the roof ... Well, the ending was kind of cool; but still ...

    Season 7: Oh, cool, they're arriving in Westeros ... Did everyone kinda forget the sept, or what? ... This. Makes. No. Sense. Even by GOT standards. Best just look at the pretty stuff... Pretty, pretty, pretty!

    Season 8: Maybe this won't be so bad ... I can't see anything. ... They really don't like dialogue, do they? ... Oh, come ON! ... Okay, will the ending at least be mindlessly enjoyable? ... These flames look pretty ... Wait, what just happened? ... Nooooooooooooo!!!!! ... You just ruined your own show! ... Well, may as well just watch this last episode .... They really don't like dialogue, do they?

  3. Tyrion says stupid things and is considered a genius. (My theory being that the Tyrion of the last few seasons was actually his idiot brother Morion.)

    Cersei mostly stared out from the balcony in season 8.

    The more I learn from the Dragon Demands about the D-chaps' lack of even the most basic qualifications and about their general modus operandi, the more I marvel that the show wasn't worse.

  4. OK, now that I'm over sulking because of my poor showing last round (meanies! WAH!), and jolly well knowing I don't have a hope this round with all the brilliant entries, here goes:

    5 (this should win by a landslide)



    I'd completely forgot about the seal stand-in, and thought it was a reference to krakens. "They're molluscs, not pinnipeds!" Duh to that, too.

    Hey! I did that! :tantrum:

    Thanks for the compliments though. :p

    I can host the next one in a week or a few weeks.

    I was warging you, though.

    Next time I host, I'll have bonuses too. That'll give me a chance to make more weird sentences.

    When I google Kossinna, I get a German archaeologist. Is that right?

    And I figured the poodle meant to be a lion when I saw it.

    I can recommend it, it is cute.

    Yeah, Kossinna was a German archaeologist. He had some kind of theory ... oh, bother, I'll have to check the book ... Half a moment ... It's in works by Peter Heather. Loosely, Kossinna held for unchanging closed group identities and Wenskus emphasised discontinuity. The details aren't really the point, though. The point is Arya read up on this stuff is using it to dis the version of Westerosi history she's being taught. Probably you had to be there.

    I like the lion-to-poodle move.

  7. Wowoo!

    My demon NW corona viruses turned into cockroaches AND flowers. AND ... I'm not sure what I drew ... stars? more viruses ... turned into Dothraki.

    Qyburn was Tintin. Briefly.

    Mean Dothraki turned into Putin, which is perhaps not too far off the mark.

    Kossinna became Pacman. Which seems reasonable. Then Arya and Septa Mordane turned into mouthless space aliens.

    I guess Darth Vader to Black Knight iisn't too far off. But wow. Jaime acquires a poodle hat (that thing was meant to be a lion. And Jaime and Cersei have mirrors because they're Lannisters.)

    I don't know what the blazes happened to that last bonus.

  8. Finally finished my satirical video on Game of Thrones character arcs. It's very amateur, of course. The worst thing is the lag between audio and visual. But to paraphrase Dr. Johnson, it's like a dog standing on its hind feet: it is not well done, but the wonder consists in its being done at all. Hopefully at least it's amusing.


  9. If any of these are right, it's strictly a coincidence:




    The Long Night is postponed, while the White Walkers sulk in self Isolation.
    Wun-Wun and Shireen team up against the members of the Nights Watch in an impromptu snowball fight.

    The Hound's chicken farm has joined forces with Davos' onion plantation to become the world's first fast food joint which specializes in fried chicken and onion rings.
     Rocksniffer is peeing down from the Wall on a nest of chickens, which are later offered him as a sandwich.

    Littlefinger tired of The Eyrie and decided to open a chain of coffee shops across the country from the Wall to Sunspear.
    A bearded man regrets having his braid cut off.



    Arya and a robot ninja fall in love over their mutual hobby of killing people that had wronged them in some manner.



    Hot Pie is living his dream of running a successful bakery.
    The yellow, noseless and mouthless aliens, one naked and one in a blue and red space suit, dream of eating fish and horse heads.



    A bored Qyburn uses his time in quarantine to tinker with his potions, when he discovers that just a whisper of wildfire significantly improves a dry martini, but one must be especially careful about shaking... or stirring.
    A devilish red haired man with a chicken plaque hanging on the wall above him, hands a poisoned cocktail to a man with an eagle plaque on his wall.


    Only the dragons are in quarantine.
    Jamie Lannister and Luke share hand loss tales and their love life choices.

    A couple settles in for movie night at home and decide on a film where giant ants attack Disneyworld while the Hindenburg is used to try to stop the path of three dothraki screamers, but they are horrified to discover that they were actually watching the news.
    A stabbed boy snowbird and a girl snowbird hang out near a black castle from which a large brown bird is looking out from the roof.



    Abe Lincon is looking out the 2nd story window of a house at a fire breathing direwolf roasting a plate of pasta when the back of Abe's head falls off and he falls backwards.
    The king is riding his mule in the sun hoping to kill the virus but Abe "frog-legs" Lincoln says "wash your hands you fool so everyone can go back to work!"
