Eddwyn Lannistark Posted November 17, 2014 Share Posted November 17, 2014 Lol don't worry about the length it was a pleasure to read! Like your excitement was building as your put your thoughts into words :PI'm glad you are reading the books as well! D&D have made quite a bit of changes :P as you've noticed :rofl:Do you have a favorite house? Or is it just Ned? And Tyrion that you like?I hope you enjoy yourself here with us, and don't be a stranger ;) Thanks Anomaly! Since I came into ASOIAF books from the GOT HBO show (and not the other way around), I don't mind most of the changes the show made. I'm especially glad D&D upped the ages of the children (the Stark kids, Jon, Dany, the secret bastard Lannister trio of Joffrey, Myrcella and Tommen) since a lot of horrible stuff happens to some of them. All the Houses of Westeros seem severely flawed to me, even House Stark: their overdeveloped sense of honor led to their downfall every step of the way. But House Stark alone seems to be the only House that isn't inherently selfish as hell. They seem to be the only good guys in a sea of progressively worse bad guys (although Dany and Tyrion are also sympathetic, imho). I like Eddard Stark AND Tywin Lannister because both embody very different qualities of fatherhood that I think are worth emulating ... when I eventually become a dad (got married recently IRL). I'll be around! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
