  1. I was mostly puzzled at the different love interest every season bit. Like, huh? Seasons 3, 4, 6 and 7, there were no others as far as I can recall.

    Small Talk: The Quiver

    I'm pretty neutral on Little Women, but man, Saoirse Ronan is so great in the trailer. I may watch for her alone.

    House Stark: Winter Is Coming

    I imagine the time and geographical distance made them sort of ignore that and Ned to idealize Robert. And while Robert had doubtlessly been chewing off the ears of everyone he had contact with about Lyana, he didn't seem like much of a correspondent, so there was a bubble. However, it is odd that there had been no marriage negotiations for at least Robb and Sansa by this point. It seems pretty common for these to take place many years before the actual weddings in Westeros.

    House Stark: Winter Is Coming

    I assume so since septas and septons follow the Faith of the Seven, which isn't the religion of the North.

    House Stark: Winter Is Coming

    I actually find the show's version of these events easier to deal with than the books. Sansa's attempted rape isn't as systemic as dudes way older than her is in the books. It's horrifying and brutal, but it felt more the result of people being brought to the edge and a reaction to her being one of the nobles, whereas the perving in the book was more a part of her daily routine. Oh, here's a pretty pre-teen, why shouldn't we, men with more power than her routinely be sleezy scumbags to her? And I frankly found Jeyne's situation even more horrifying than Sansa's, because I felt at the time that one of the messages transmitted to me was that I should feel relieved because it wasn't one of the Starks and I really didn't know her aside from minor mentions in Sansa's and Arya's chapters. Which was very much not how I felt. It may not have been what GRRM intended, but there you go.

    Not to Sansa, but Lollys was rapred fifty times over during the riot in the book. It’s not that it didn’t happen, only that it was repurposed.

    House Stark: Winter Is Coming

    Okay, that tl; dr post is hilarious throughout and I was chuckling at the description of the Starklings (possibly the best description of Jon) and then I lost it when I came to the other one. 🤣🤣🤣 Ned being to blame for Theon isn’t that wrong, but man, I have no idea what he’d have turned into if he had stayed with his own psycho dad. Probably dead by the age of 15 when either Balon or one of his brothers drowned him. It is a really good character study of a kid left rudderless, though. While I can see reasoning behind some of Ned’s actions, this one is truly mindboggling. Like, okay, you don’t pay much attention to Arya’s story, but once you’ve realized something huge based off Sansa’s off the cuff comment, you never go back to lions and wolves? It really shouldn’t be that tough of a code to crack for you, dude. But whatever, Ned and Cat were supposed to die anyway, because GRRM needed that to have the kids grow. ETA: I’m just reading a Sansa chapter of ACOK, and man is that thing about 900 dudes perving on her true. Currently, it’s Dontos. I am so glad this was dialed back about a thousand in the show. I’m glad this fucker was killed later on.

    House Stark: Winter Is Coming

    If anything, I think Ned should actually have lied to the girls, because, yes, them being in the know was a liability. Oh, yeah, you two are just going to visit house so and so, amazingly enough, they have both daughters interested in embroidery and songs like Sansa, AND sons who'd love to spar against Arya and take her hunting. They'd also love to train with Syrio. It's just a short visit, you'll be back in a jiff. See you soon. Toodles. And then he packs them onto a boat taking them unknowingly and circuitously home.

    Very few people can keep up with Littlefinger, so I don't think Ned taking note of his warning would have meant much. He'd have played him differently. And taking LF's warning to heart again means he trusts the bastard. Regardless of how readers took Sansa going to Cersei, I firmly believe the purpose of putting that in was so that Sansa feels guilty, not that anyone else views her as such. She doesn't know that Ned has doomed himself. Because, yes, I do agree that not getting the girls out before going to Cersei was idiotic.

    Who Should Sit The Iron Throne?

    As the kids would say, same. Back to the seven kingdoms as in the pre-Targaryen era.

    Who Should Sit The Iron Throne?

    I'm rereading the books and am actually trying to spot if there is anything there to point in the direction of Bran and Sansa. I'm about a third to half way through The Clash of Kings, and one scene that stuck out to me was Tyrion getting back to KL and making note of how the people have nothing to eat while Cersei wastes time, money and resources on other shit as winter approaches. This I think connects directly to Sansa always worrying about supplies of food in the last two seasons. Much is also made about it at Winterfell at the same time, where Luwin and/or Rodrik wrangle the bannermen to set more food aside. And Bran actually IS taught to rule at this time and eventually both his mentors compliment him. However, this doesn't really fold intothe TV ending seeing as there's no Bran left. So, currently I'm at the point where Bran makes sense as king down the line to me, but not the 3ER. However, the other great houses going along with an independent Stark run North, and a Stark ruling over the remaining six kingdoms still doesn't gel.
