Mrs.Grumpy Posted October 5, 2013 Share Posted October 5, 2013 As you know Cersei's prophecy says;Aye. Queen you shall be... until there comes another, younger and more beautiful, to cast you down and take all that you hold dear. Cersei assumes that there will be a queen who will take everything from her and thinks that queen is Margaery Tyrell. But as you can see there's no mention of a queen in the prophecy. It says another rather than an another queen. Another means;1-being one more or more of the same; further; additional2-different; distinct; of a different period, place, or kind: For those who think "wtf is a quibble?"In terms of fiction, a quibble is a plot device, used to fulfill the exact verbal conditions of an agreement in order to avoid the intended meaning. Typically quibbles are used in legal bargains and, in fantasy, magically enforced ones. So why does everyone assume that Sansa or Margaery or Dany will cast her down? It could be anyone who's more beautiful and younger than Cersei. My guess is Loras :p Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
