The Bard of Banefort Posted September 25, 2021 Author Share Posted September 25, 2021 11 hours ago, FictionIsntReal said: Do we know of Varys ever taking on someone in hand-to-hand combat who is tougher than one-handed Jaime? That's the Watsonian explanation. The Doyleist is that GRRM is writing the series and plans things out in a way no individual character can, putting his thumb on the scale in ways no character would predict in advance. I agree with this. Both Varys and Littlefinger are extremely clever, but a lot of their plans rely too much on happenstance or involve too much foreknowledge to realistically work. LF’s diabolical plan for winning the Tyrells over—involving singers, servants, and guardsmen, without LF doing anything to implicate himself—was just too convenient. I don’t believe in the Dornish Master Plan, but it wouldn’t be the first far-fetched conspiracy to come to fruition in this series. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
