    Which single character’s action was the most shocking for you?

    "Ser Ilyn, bring me his head!" I mean, heroes do have immunity, at least until the very last chapters of the last book in the series, right? Right? Joffrey... George, what the fuck?! Did it really happen?... It did. Wow.

    Let’s get some things off our chests

    I consider that a feature, not a bug. LF is indeed more lucky than he has any right to be. He lives on borrowed luck, actually, and the day the luck bank calls the debt, the day the dice will suddenly start rolling against Littlefinger... Oh, it would be glorious. If GRRM some day finished the damn series.

    How big is an endorsement for a book by GRRM for you?

    I'm with the "none" camp. If he puts his name on the cover in order to convince me to buy it, it better be in the place reserved for the author. "G.R.R. Martin" just above the title is enticing. "G.R.R. Martin recommends", not really. It would be awesome if he ever got into the book-writing business again.

    House Frey: Robb's Offer vs. Tywin's offer

    No. And no. We've met Ser and Mrs. Emmon Frey, haven't we? It's Genna Lannister who's really lord in this family. So, by "Freys", you meant "Lannisters". And regarding Winterfell - it's simply false. Do you have a quote regarding the "giving of Winterfell to the Boltons"?

    House Frey: Robb's Offer vs. Tywin's offer

    For your convenience, I just marked the parts where you outright make stuff up. You're welcome.

    How did Cersei find out about Robert's bastard?

    It's easily explained without involving neither Varys nor Littlefinger (nor Bloodraven). City plus royal court equals gossip, probably terabytes per second's worth of it.

    Opinions on Ghostwriters for remaining books

    Big Bucket Wull had a perfect answer for exactly this sort of a question. It started with "I want to live forever in a land where summer lasts a thousand years. I want a castle in the clouds where I can look down over the world. I want to be six-and-twenty again...".

    Anyone else here who hasn't watched the series waiting for TWOW?

    I've lost belief in TWOW ever being published some time ago, so for me the spoiler issue is moot. For any kind of "reading experience" the book needs to exist in the first place.

    The Valenquor

    Actually, the can of possibilities will be so huge that Maggy's words will be meaningless. People like to interpret "the valonqar" as, effectively, "some person" - because that's what "anybody, no relation to Cersei, of any gender, as long as he or she has or had some older sibling" amounts to. I strongly disagree. I still believe that Maggy's words actually conveyed some non-trivial information, as crazy as it sounds. (And don't get me started on YAMBQ...)

    Mance Rayder violated guest rights!

    Um... No, no, no, kinda-but-it-matters-not, and no. Roose wasn't "given" the North. Roose was, specifically, appointed Warden of the North, not Lord Paramount of the North and not Lord of Winterfell. If you argue that Winterfell is the seat of the Warden of the North - yes, traditionally. The same as, by tradition, Eyrie was the seat of the Warden of the East, and Casterly Rock - Warden of the West. However, when Jaime was given wardenship of the East (by Bob), and Daven - of the West (by Cersei), the Eyrie and the Rock respectively weren't part of the package. Roose didn't "defeat" the Starks. Not according to Roose himself. Not at the Red Wedding ("no comment"), not at Winterfell ("the ironborn did it"). Roose didn't "rebuild" Winterfell, and anyway, that's hardly a claim to ownership. If I scratch your car, and fix the scratch - is it now my car? And if your answer is "yes", I'd like to know where do you park. The Bolton claim to Winterfell stem solely from the marriage of Ramsay Bolton né Snow to one Arya Stark. Who, however, isn't Arya Stark, but Jeyne Poole, hence the claim is a sham. And, considering the nature of the marriage (gods!), arguing loudly for Ramsay's alleged rights there is a little unbecoming. So, all in all, the Boltons weren't hosts, but squatters, and the guest right says nothing about squatters' rights.

    winter will not come in 2018

    Well. Now, then, now then, now, now, then, now then, now then, then now... At the beginning of the century, we waited five years for "Feast" and then six more years for "Dance". So - he's halfway there? Almost halfway there? If the situation is analogical. (Or he doesn't have even that much, and that's why he's "resisting".)

    How far will Arya go to kill her enemies?

    Aww, shucks... Just doin' my job, ma'am.
  13. Ferocious Veldt Roarer

    How far will Arya go to kill her enemies?

    True, all true. After all, "A Song of Ice and Fire" is a story about dutiful fraud investigators and their relentless quest for maintaining and protecting the well-regulated insurance market. Not about swords and poisons and vengeance and shit.

    "The Others Take You"

    "The Others take..." is a perfect equivalent of "to Hell with...". It's not only "the Others take you", it could be "the Others take his eyes" (by Robb, re: the beheaded deserter), and even "the Others take your pigeon" (by the peddler not interested in the trade Arya offered).

    How far will Arya go to kill her enemies?

    Don't mean to nitpick (LOL JK), but if he had been arrested, he still may have been innocent of fraud. And if he had been convicted, he still might have been innocent. Which means nothing. "A Song of Ice and Fire" really isn't a lawyer drama. It's not a police procedural. It's not a story about due process. Did you miss that? How?
