Curled Finger Posted July 16, 2020 Share Posted July 16, 2020 27 minutes ago, Frey family reunion said: It's typically been thought of as a reference to female genitalia. Which kind of makes it ironic that Renly brings it up. But of course if GRRM is using this double entendre it does make sense in a way. Renly is showing off the power of Highgarden. The power which he obtained by marrying Margaery and thus having to eat her, umm, peach. I think this is a bit of mockery here. Renly, though gay, still finds the peach/vagina delicious because of the power it brings him, the power of Highgarden. Stannis who is probably not much of a peach eater himself takes offense and tries to puzzle out the meaning. Interestingly enough, Stannis himself may partake in a bit of the peach with Melisandre, creating the Shadow Assassin that kills Renly and brings Highgardens army to him. I'm reading your post and thinking, wow, this is fascinating. I wonder if any of us drew conclusions of this nature before we began dissecting ASOIAF! Really good stuff, Man!
