50.0% "Spoilers: so Ned says he's milk brothers with Jon Snow, whose mother is Wylla. This conversation makes me disbelieve some of the fan theories about Jon (R+L=J) because of how similar this is to Robb. Maybe I need to review the theory and maybe Wylla is just a name used though it doesn't seem so. I'm open for more enlightenment." 1 comment

Cross examine, how much did you have to drink, 77 courses is a lot. There was a lot going on right, you looked directly at the chalice? The whole time? How many people were on the dais?"

Abigail I know I've read this one I just can't remember a thing about it except a little of Jon snow ending up in Mace's troup


seak This was where I really fell in love with the series. Jaime became one of my favorite characters, which I never would have thought possible and the infamous Red Wedding. I know there was some good stuff with the Brotherhood without banners, but honestly, I'm really due for a reread. Feast for Crows has me forgetting where everyone else (who I like) is.

Rob That twitter feed is hilarious. What year did this book come out? People are nerd raging all over again.

**spoilers for this book only**

I need to watch this season still. I didn't like Season 2 as much as Season 1, minus Episode 9: Blackwater

I'm with you there. But this season is heaps better than last.

Haha, HBO and D.B. Weiss! Are there really people who don't know about the books? It boggles the mind. :)

There really are plenty of characters you know. :D Did you see this article in EW about why GRRM did the Red Wedding?

For some reason people say they hate the Lannisters, but I don't know why. Two people that are super awesome, one who is arguably the best character in the series (Tyrion) are Lannisters. Yes, they have the really terrible people, but you can't really say you HATE the Lannisters at least not anymore.


karen i really never cared about (view spoiler)

but some other people i like get dead in this one...

i did see that article. someone sent me this, but i haven't been able to listen to it yet:

Me neither. Most Lannisters (looking at the larger family tree) are no worse than others. They have a few bad seeds who happen to attract a lot of attention (Tywin and Joffrey), but honestly looking at the Targaryens and Boltons I dare say there are worse than the Lannisters. I suppose it has to do with people rooting for the Starks, although I much prefer the Lannisters to them. They are much more interesting.


karen i'm on the side of the dragons
