they cut arianne from the show and she's being replaced with trystane

Well that’s fucking dumb, but I also called it, so I’m not shocked.

I'm still annoyed about the "Storming of the Dragonpit". Five Dragons FIVE DRAGONS were killed by small folk. Makes me sad because I love Dragons.

I’m actually terrified of dragons, so I totally get it?

Do you ever think about how Sandor Clegane (dark hair, grey eyes) had a little sister who died when she was a child, and how she probably also had dark hair and grey eyes, and thus probably looked rather like Arya Stark?

The Legend of Storm’s End by SephyStabbity

"The songs said that Storm’s End had been raised in ancient days by Durran, the first Storm King, who had won the love of the fair Elenei, daughter of the sea god and the goddess of the wind […] her grieving parents had unleashed their wrath and sent the winds and waters to batter down Durran’s hold […] Five more castles he built, each larger and stronger than the least, only to see them smashed asunder when the gale winds came howling up Shipbreaker Bay […] A seventh castle he raised, most massive of all. Some said the children of the forest helped him built it shaping the stones with magic; others claimed that a small boy told him what he must do, a boy who would grow to be Bran the Builder."

Hey, have you read about the Ragnorok ties to ASOIAF? If so, what do you make of it?

It’s the only theory I hate more than the Grand Northern Conspiracy.

I say again, if you don’t think ice zombies, dragons, greyscale, a monstrous wolf pack, Lady Stoneheart, sellsword companies, and the entire Northern nobility can whittle down House Frey, well…

I'm sure I'm forgetting someone, but if both Stannis and Shireen don't live, won't the Baratheon line die out? Do you think Edric Storm may play into this at all and be legitimized if/when he ever makes his way back into the story? (as I ask one question, others come to mind) Are there any houses you believe will be extinct by the end of ASOIAF?

It’s true. If Stannis and Shireen die, then the Baratheon line is done. It’s a sad fact. But this question did make me think of something. If Stannis truly didn’t want to be king, it would be a simple matter of legitimizing one of Robert’s many bastards, right? As king, he has that power.

But then I thought a) the rest of the realm foolishly doesn’t accept him, and b) would that even work? Edric could be legitimized by Stannis as Robert’s heir. But then Edric would be Robert’s heir, which means Stannis wouldn’t be king, and the royal decree wouldn’t mean anything, which means Stannis IS Robert’s heir, which means WHY DO I SMELL TOAST.

But yes, there are definitely some houses that won’t make it. Bolton, Baratheon, Frey, Arryn, possibly Tully, probably Martell, and quite a few others.

I don't really think the post implied that Khaleesi was a name, no more than it implied that queen was a name. Unless you mean that you refused to choose it because of the people who indeed think it is her name, which is perfectly understandable.

Yes, I meant that I refused to pick it because people think it’s her name.

There are hundreds of infants named Khaleesi right now in the world.

That’s as many as ten tens. And that’s terrible.

George R. R. Martin:

“The peach represents… Well… It’s pleasure. It’s… tasting the juices of life. Stannis is a very marshal man concerned with his duty, and with that peach Renly says: “Smell the roses”, because Stannis is always concerned with his duty and honor, in what he should be doing and he never really stops to taste the fruit. Renly wants him to taste the fruit but it’s lost. I wish that scene had been included in the TV series because for me that peach was important, but it wasn’t possible.”
