    My only real problem with the books is the constant introduction of new characters, I've never seen the series so i dont know if its the same, but I'm one of those people who has to give a unique 'face' to every character I come across, even the minor ones which you might never even see again. Oh, and remembering the names I gave the faces too, the worst for that was the kingsguard :/

    Tyrion = Targaryen


    Look it up if you aren't familiar with it. Pretty compelling theory.

    I've heard of that before, but I'll be pretty annoyed if it's true. Though it'd be cool to see Tyrion ride on one of those dragons.

    Darkstar Vs. Balon Swann. Hopefully it's a duel as good as Oberyn Martell Vs. Ser Gregor Clegane was in Storm. :del

    Yieeaha, he strikes me as one of the bounty killers from the spaghetti western clint eastwood movies. Heck yeargh!

    Btw do you think that the young dragon has any chances of meeting Arya? if he wants the north under his control, marrying her would be the best and easiest choice.

    What is this T-T theory?

    That targaryen fucks targaryen?

    I am sorry but danny is filled with stds and doesnt deserve the shonen saskay targaryen, no way.


    So... where could I bring this petition, request to Martin? About the fight?

    Tyrion being Aerys' son through rape.

    It is just people wanting their favourite character to be a Targaryen. Because how kewl would it be if the three main characters were Targaryens?

    Yes, I also agree the the idea of Tyrion somehow being a Targaryen would be a very foolish idea; the tension between him and his father was a very awesome aspect of his character, and such a twist would greatly undermine it, in my mind.

    But as Genna Lannister said to Jaime, "Tyrion is Tywin's true son". I'm not sure how prodigious Tywin was as a fighter, but all his cunning and more went to Tyrion.

    Yes, indeed; I believe that Tywin and Tyrion were actually very similar to each other, although neither of them would ever admit it.

    Oh shit. About a third of the way into the second book and I'm surprised at the turn's it took. I thought the dragons at the end of first book were about as "fantasy" as the series would get, but damn. :ho

    Giving birth to murderous shadows... wut. And that Jaqen guy is fucking awesome. Loving it so far :LOS

    I hope Theon dies a fiery death, little bastard. Hopefully will finish it tomorrow, all though I ordered the third books and they haven't come yet, and I don't trust the postal network over here. :pek

    Theon was awesome once he arrived in Pyke. Or maybe a bit during the journey. Between the journey to Pyke and the dinner with his father, best moments. I loved his conversation with his sister before he knew who she was. After that all turns to shit.

    Well the books are like leagues better then the TV show to me, but I do love the show as well.

    One thing thats funny is when i watch the show, it seems like its on speed! Like everything seems so much faster. I mean even the scenes. And also the things they take out and add, that they feel is good for the show isn't always good for the show. One thing is that Khal Drogo could speak the common tongue, I have no idea why he couldn't in the show.

    Also the tv politics as well...

    I would read the books. It doesn't spoil it for me at all because they are a bit different. And watching things play out on screen is quite nice!

    Not really sure he'd change it, as he already knows how the story ends. so i don't believe he would change something like that which would probably be important to the end story. Just my opinion.

    Although I thought the scene was pointless, The books hint at there being a relationship between Stannis and Melly.

    So I am 500 pages into DoD and something really irks me.

    Spoiler:
    The Aegon reveal seems like 11th hour plotting and an ass pull on George's part. I get that it was a tad foreshadowed in Book 1 but it is still right out of left field and adds more complications for the sake of them.

    That got me annoyed too. It makes everything seem vague and immensely unpredictable and it just left me with a bad taste in my mouth. I?m not sure what GRRM wants to achieve here: is this a relevant twist to the overall plot or just a random plot device? I really hope it?s the former.
