    Tyrek Lannister's personality?

    Jaime actually went to war long before Tyrek went missing, and Cersei started to sleep with Lancel likely before Robert's death, to actually make him kill Robert in the first place and it was also long before Tyrek went missing. So, timing-wise, it works, though I also find it unlikely.

    What was Tywin's original plan?

    Wasn't really a family feud, Ned genuinely believed that Lannisters were about to strike against Robert due to Lysa writing that Lannisters killed Jon Arryn, and due to LF telling that the dagger with which an assassin tried to kill Bran belonged to Tyrion. That's why Catelyn felt like she had to capture Tyrion once Tyrion saw her in the inn - because in Cat's eyes her being there would signal to Tyrion that the Stark know about the planned coup. Ned and Cat belived they were already in a war before it actually began.

    Lord Tywin Frequented Brothels (Theory)

    Shouldn't be until we know for certain what happened between Shae/Tywin/Varys as George has said he hasn't yet revealed everything that happened there.

    Strongest Lannister Vassal

    Rains of Castemere are being cited so many times as an evidence of Tywin getting rid of vassals getting too strong, yet Reynes being strong had nothing to do with why Tywin went after them and Tarbecks were not a powerful House at all.
  6. The first answer was Jaime, if it fails, next in the line. For people who say that Tywin would have never let Tyrion inherit, it was after Tyrion brought a whore to court and threatened his nephew's well-being for a whore's life. Before that, Tywin was literally prepping Tyrion to inherit when Jaime was captured and there was a high chance he would die. I am honestly surprised that people forget about this major plot point which is literally the reason why Tyrion was acting as a Hand during a whole book.

    They ruined Jaime once and for all

    Just forget about Jaime from seasons 1 to 3 and look at him starting from season 4 because that's when D&D completely changed his arc and character and started to write him on their own. In seasons 4 - 8, was there really a redemption arc? To me it looked like it was 'will he finally get away from his sister' arc, which wasn't even an arc but an audience bait: will he or won't he? I mean, for 4 seasons he was doing nothing but pleasing Cersei and proving his love for her. What redemption was there? People have long been saying that since season 4 Jaime's redemption arc was postponed for plot reasons. Well, actually it wasn't postponed, it was cancelled. And not now but back in season 4, when his character stopped being about becoming better and started to be about a good man being enthralled by an evil woman. With the main question to be - will he escape her charms or not.

    Which House is this?

    This one: https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/House_Myatt
  10. Dofs

    Girlfriend, mistress, paramour and concubine

    As I understand in terms of ASOIAF: Paramour - basically a wife in practice, an equivalent of a girlfriend. Mistress - a woman of a man who is already married to a different woman, basically the same as in real life. Concubine - a woman that the man keeps for sex. She maybe be a personal prostitute (that would probably be expected to be faithful as a concubine), a sex slave, or, like Lynesse, a gold digger.

    Do you think Victarion Greyjoy is a psycopath?

    It's a mental disorder. You quoted it yourself. So, anyone with whom you wouldn't leave your kids to take care of has a mental disorder?

    Do you think Victarion Greyjoy is a psycopath?

    So you admit that Psychopathy is a chronic mental disorder and then go on and say that entire cities can be made up entirely of people with this mental disorder that "banded together". I mean, doesn't it sound silly to you? Even a little bit?
  13. GRRM called Jaime as one of the best swordsmen in the history of Westeros.

    Do you think Victarion Greyjoy is a psycopath?

    Well, that's what I meant by "thick-headed"

    Let's suppose...

    I agree with those that say that the problems wouldn't come from Daemon's sons but from Daemon himself. At the time of Viserys' death he was still a huge powerhungry asshole and with the absence of other faction to fight (greens), I do believe he could have easily turned on Rhaenyra's 'strong' sons. After all, it's very doubtful that he married Rhaenyra for love, more like that was his attempt to get closer to the throne, and he would have very likely tried to sideline Rhaenyra and her bastards in favour of his children. Heck, the situation might have escalated to a different type of Dance down the line.
