Thanks, folks.

It’s more like a double-barreled last name. The Martells are progressive like that.

No, but their full family name is two names: Nymeros Martell. Nymeros was added to indicate Queen Nymeria’s family line I think.

Double last name. They’re the Sackville-Bagginses of Westeros!

Wait, are the Martells the only characters with middle names, or am I imagining that?


It is not in Stannis to yield
"…so long as he knows his claim is just. No more than he can unsay his words against Joffrey, when he believes them true. As for the marriage, Tommen was born of the same incest as Joffrey, and His Grace would sooner see Shireen dead than wed to such.”
A vein throbbed in Florent’s forehead. “He has no choice.”
"You are wrong, my lord. He can choose to die a king.”

aegon took storm’s end, no? though i think that hapens in Arianne’s except of tWoW so technically it hasnt happened yet?

I don’t believe he has yet, but then, I only read the Arianne chapter once. I seem to recall them saying they were going to take Storm’s End.

*shrug* we’ll find out together, I suppose.

Which houses fight for Stannis?

racefortheironthrone:

Initially? Just the Houses sworn to Dragonstone. Velayron, Bar Emmon, Celtigar, and Sunglass. 

After Storm’s End?  In addition to who he had to begin with, he gets the Stormlords who rode with Renly switch over to Stannis, along with the Florents, Fossoways, Mullendores, Cranes, and Varners of the Reach. He also picks up a few Crownlands Houses. 

Now? Of the Stormlords, he’s only got the Horpes, Peaseburys, Fells, Wyldes, Grandisons, Morrigens, Carons, and Wensingtons; of the Reach, just the Florents and the Meadows. Of the North, he picks up the First Flints, the Wulls, the Burleys, the Harclays, the Knotts, the Liddles, the Norreys, House Glover, House Mormont, House Karstark (kinda), and half of the Umbers.  

I TOLD YOU STEVEN ATWELL KNOWS HIS SHIT.

Wait…a legitimized bastard comes AFTER all other possible heirs, per precedent.

Per precedent? Please show your work?

I don’t remember this situation ever coming up. Unless *gasp* you’re saying Daemon Blackfyre didn’t have a claim?!

How would Stannis have reacted if Renly didnt claim the crown for himself but instead backed Edric Storm as lord regent, claiming King Bob legitimized him on his death bed?

I mean, this isn’t something Renly would ever do. But yeah, if he produced some kind of evidence to back it up, Stannis’d be on-board for sure.

i think you mean blackhawks tbh :P

*hiss* Kit, don’t tell me you’re a Blackhawks fan! It’s ok, you’re young, you’ll grow out of it!

Let's go Blackhawks.

Know of any good ASOIAF (not GOT) podcasts or youtube videos?

Anonymous

Well, there’s the Boiled Leather Audio Hour and A Podcast of Ice and Fire, I hear Fat Pink Cast is good, but I’ve never listened.

That’s about it, as far I know of.

actually homosexuality is definitely not punishable with death, at least in the show bc there was a joffery margaery scene where joffrey was saying he should make it punishable with death

Anonymous

Yeah. I hated that scene. The performances were great, but it was just a littlelot stupid. But anyway. I doubt anybody would actually let Joffrey do that. (I know, I know, the king can do as he likes. Tell me again how Sansa ate Robb Stark’s head at Joffrey’s wedding? Tywin would probably say something like “Yes your grace, we’ll get right on that. Hey look, bedtime.” and then ignore the thing.)

Do the Stormlands still fight for Stannis? The exact make up of his army has never been clear to me.

Anonymous

Yes, and no. Storm’s End still belongs to Stannis, for the nonce. Tarth doesn’t. Dondarrion doesn’t. Quite a few of the Stormlords don’t. His army is mostly northerners and crownlands, right now, I believe. Ask Steven Atwell. He’s got a better head on his shoulders for these kinds of things than I do.

Think we've seen the last of Sybell Spicer and her bitch brood?

Anonymous

No, probably not. I’m sure some horrible fate will befall them. Maybe we’ll see some Snowes of Castamere once the Others hit the scene. Maybe they’ll all die of greyscale.

We just don’t know.

I believe King Joff called Renly a degenerate during that scene. That plus the Loras doll would imply that everyone knew that he was a gay. How did they find out and why haven't they executed Loras for breaking the faith?

"a gay"?Jesus, Anon.

Homosexuality isn’t a death sentence in Westeros? At no point has that been implied. And, unlike in the books, where only a few people seem to know (Littlefinger, Stannis, and a few other highborn people), everyone in Westeros is apparently aware of it.
