bloodymime Posted April 10, 2012 Share Posted April 10, 2012 My goodness, this is ridiculous. LF's status as a creepy predator is directly referenced in the books. I already gave the example with looking at Sansa as though she's naked; add to this kissing her while building the snow castle, wanting to marry her after Ned death, giving Jeyne over to be trained in his brothels, sourcing boys for Lyn Corbray, making Sansa kiss him, sit on his lap for "daddy time" and what in the name of the seven do you get but a sexual predator??It showed for viewers who might not be familiar with the books just what this man is capable of. Forget him as the wizard of the game for a moment, and think of the man's innate character, especially as it relates to his treatment of women in the text. It's despicable, and throughout this book he's going to putting his plans in place for Sansa with Dontos etc. THIS is why readers needed to understand that he's not simply a suave game player, he's a low life pimp who doesn't care past his bottom line. If this doesn't jive with the image you have of LF in your head, then too bad.Littlefinger comes across in the books much creepier then in the series though to be fair the books are far past the where the show is. This is a man who takes this young girl and proceeds to strip away her identity to the point of even changing her name, makes her believe she is complicit in the murder of her aunt all to make sure nobody knows who she is but him thus making her believe she is completely helpless and dependant upon him to stay safe and when she does good and obeys he rewards her with secrets that make her feel special and even more beholden to him.And people are going to want to say this was for her own good to keep her protected, kind of just same way Littlefinger convinces Sansa of the same but if that was what mattered at all to him he would have let her go on to marry Willas Tyrell but what good is Sansa being safe unless he gets to own her the way he could never own Cat. Everything he does with Sansa is to make sure he and he alone possesses her. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
