    How do we remove that gender identifier from the side box? How do we remove signatures to decrease clutter? Where are my friends (in my profile)? Thanks!

    Re-read Project Resource Page

    Wow - thank you so much. This is an amazing compilation of gray matter. I am very happy to see evita mgfs' additions in the post above. I've just recently discovered a couple of her amazing posts and am looking forward to finding time to delve into them deeper and to find more of them, along with these listed here, MOIAF. ETA: words

    [TWOW Spoilers] Alayne I, v. 3

    @ Hippocras: Fascinating idea about LF trying to usurp the IB. That had not occurred to me. I rather thought he was in league with the IB; his family is from Braavos and he has been able to buy up debt the IB has been calling in on Westerosi houses. I agree that the HtH betrothal is the goal, not the marriage itself. Harry can’t marry a Royce or Waynwood or a wealthy spice merchant’s daughter if he is betrothed. If he should end up in the Winged Knights, he could be locked in for another three years, which would be a tremendous amount of time for LF’s machinations to bear fruit. @ ChillyPolly: Thanks for clearing up the origin of the UnBrienne. While I don’t agree that she is undead (we have a surfeit of undead already, I appreciate the idea. Also, you point out interesting ideas regarding Breanne’s ability to infiltrate the tourney. I would, however, pity anyone wearing the Hound’s helm after the Saltpans atrocities. I still shake my head at Lem Lemoncloak for wanting to keep it. Hmmm. Lem is tall; he too might pass with that helmet late at night, if we squint… Brienne does not have to be undead to be emotionally ravaged by conflicting vows. This was Jaime’s lesson to her, and now she is sinking into the moral morass of No Win. There isn’t a 100% Noble Outcome here to be had. She can only choose what seems to be the lesser of atrocious evils and watch others pay. Even if she chose to kill herself to keep her honor, others (Pod, Hyle) would die. Poor Brienne: honor was all she really had that was hers alone. Now she must traverse the same Honor/Semi-Honor/No Honor quicksand as so many others in these stories: Jaime, Jon, Ned, Arya, Stannis, Dany, Tyrion, the TOJ Kingsguard, and so many others.

    When I try to post, all of the control functions are grayed out - unavailable. If I quote someone, as I did you above, it shows up as code. Then anything I write just strings along in a long line. Is there something I can turn on or off to revert to the previous posting abilities? Is it something that can be turned off on your end? Thanks again.

    Is anyone else having issues with posting? I am unable to format at all. Thanks...

    Julia Spiegel @ #171 - Wow, great insight. With regard to this passage, most posts have focused on Sansa's embracing the cover story or the identity of Petyr's daughter. This sentence is very much like Varys - misleading but not technically a lie. Well done.

    Has any consideration been given to breaking out the TV section so that its high volume does not impact the entire site? Just wondering. Thanks again.

    I am still having trouble with the quote function. When I quote someone, the quote shows up in the dialogue box as code and then only permits me to add my comments within that user's quote box. So I cannot format my comments at all. Is there something I can do to see a separate area for my own comments (which would be format-able?) Many thanks for all you do...

    [TWOW Spoilers] Alayne I, v. 3

    That's what I would call a Spring-Autumn romance (possibly even Spring-Winter.) Besides, Meera owns Bran's heart for the time being. Bran and Arya are crafted with a COTF bent (tree-climbing squirrels) while Sansa, it is clear, has always been the Andal, Faith of the Seven, Southron belle...duty-bound like her mother. I am hoping to see more falcon/bat imagery around her story arc in the next book...

    [ quote name=Avlonnic" post="6890583" timestamp="1428514888] I am having trouble with quoting. Instead of the regular quote, it defaults to code language. How do I correct this? Many thanks in advance... Like this - perhaps it is only in the preview box. Sorry about that.
