Angel Eyes

A shy girl? She must be insipid.

Recommended Posts

I’m a little flummoxed by the leap of logic that Jon takes in his opinion of Myrcella. He sees that she’s shy and smiles timidly at Robb. So how does that make her insipid?

She's insipid because Jon is a judgmental asshole when it comes to classically feminine women tbh.

I think it may have been him feeling a bit resentful of them given that his family got to sit with the royal family while he was tucked away in a corner. His unhappiness about that may have made him feel a tad snippy.

He likes wild, ferocious women like Igritte or Val so he thinks shy, sweet girls are boring.

I think all these are correct.

But I also think that it is a form of foreshadowing. Since then, we have gotten a lot of clues that point to the fact that Myrcella is a sharp as a whip. An intellectual equal to Tyrion and Tywin. For one, she has the makings of an accomplished strategist. Not only is she a good cyvasse player on her own merits but she is also capable of observing other people strategies and incorporating them into her own.

TV!Myrcella (yeah, I know...) was also the rare few who was able to independently come to the conclusion that she is a bastard born of incest and adultery and that Jaime Lannister is her father.

When GRRM finishes the books, I would love if he would go all out and a J.K. Rowling and commission out cyvasse and like make a real thing. Kind of how Rowling did with wizard's chess, the every-flavor-beans and the chocolate frogs

This is really random but speaking of J.K. Rowling? Am I the only one who has noticed that quidditch is a lot like hockey?

Never heard of it like that. Hagrid compared it to soccer.
