klaroline-westeros said: Hi! So it won't let me reply to my post, but I wanted to comment on you saying: "I’m still not convinced there won’t be Stoneheart. Brienne could still run into her." - I wish that were true, but I did read a few interviews, one with Michelle (Catelyn) herself, stating that they had decided against bringing Lady Stoneheart in because they didn't have time to fit that storyline in and thought it might seem 'pointless' for her to just come in and kill people. Something like that. :/
I read that as well. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking, but I don’t think we’ve had a definitive no from the show runners. They could be throwing us a curve ball (I hope.)
I wrote/scribbled this during lunch & after work this week because I was thinking about GOT. I haven’t read all of the books yet and I just don’t want one of my favorite characters to not have a chance at redemption. This is 100% wishful thinking (that probably will not happen).
This is awesome and unknowingly close to what most people believe really happens (not completely, however.)
To everyone who disagrees with this, how did that Red Viper thing turn out for you? I’m happy I ran into Richelle Mead’s work because when characters die it is a big thing that changes the world, not just one or two little things. Their deaths meant as much as their lives which at this point I hope AGOT fans are realizing is not the case with Mr. Martin’s work.
What are you talking about? Ned Stark’s death caused a civil war. Robb and Catelyn’s ended the Stark’s part in it. King Robert’s death sparked the War of the Five Kings and Renly’s death caused his men to switch to Stannis. Viserys death made Daenerys’ realize she was the real Targaryen and Khal Drogo dying was the impetus for her to enter his funeral pyre and birth her dragons. Even a low born death like Arya’s friend, the butcher’s boy, was the beginning of Arya’s quest for revenge against her enemy’s list. As for the Red Viper, his kingdom and powerful House are in turmoil as a result, sparking actions that will shape Martell/Lannister relations permanently. Death in ASOIAF, including deaths that occur before the story even started, have long lasting consequences. Your claim is factually incorrect.
I need help; why have the white walkers even come back? Is it because winter is coming??? And how do they tie in with the playing for the iron throne storyline??
No one knows what the White Walkers are really up to, who they are, where they come from, or what they want. All we know is that they are supernatural beings who wake up in the extreme North after thousands of years to portend some profound occurrence in the world (always bad.) Legend has it that it involves the reintroduction of magic. It cannot be a coincidence that they appear around the same time Daenerys’ dragons are born i.e. the Ice and Fire (pure speculation.)
