    Lol! I could see that. Though they are doing season 2, now.

    I was somewhat anticipating a few follow up pics to flesh out this theory, but it works.

  • you know … this has crossed my mind a couple of times. well, good thing we know who they are. now all we need to find out is where their kids go to school :D

    [[ how creepy is that on scale of 1 to 10? 1 being nice old Maester Lewin and 10 being Ramsay Bolton]]

    No…now all we need to find out is: where do whores go? ;)

    Just found this the other day:

    Shae haters are isolationists

    Shae ain’t messing with no broke dwarfs.

  • Off topic, but I had a random thought the other day.

    If the words of every house are based on their sigil or history, and the Frey’s control an important bridge, does that mean their house words are “You shall not pass!”?

  • My favorite theory, to date, is Jaime is Azor Ahai, and Bran is the Great Other.

    Who knows if it’s true or not, but it is an interesting theory. There’s a thread on Westeros.org under the ADWD section titled “Jaime & Bran” that really goes into detail. I’ve read countless other theories, but that one is pretty convincing… even though most Stark/Jon Snow/Dany fans (i.e. pretty much everyone) won’t like it. I think the thread itself is about 15 pages long, so there’s a ton of research on there, but you have to skim over some of the posts. Check it out if you haven’t already. Again, not saying it’s true… just interesting.

  • Varamyr Fourskins,

    I can honestly say that not “pretty much everyone” loves Jon and Dany. The Starks? Sure. But Jon Snow and Dany? No. I know of quite a few people who find them both pretty insufferable.

    This would be AWESOME.

    Perhaps. But I think everyone more or less expects them to end up together, and “win” the GoT. Whether that translates to “liking” their characters, I don’t know. But it seems to be a fairly common theory.

    Varamyr Fourskins,

    WTF!?Its a Saturday morning thread, but do you really have to act like a child?

    This is not the thread you’re looking for.

    Act like a child? What the hell are you talking about?

    If you didn’t notice, the meme says “What if D&D made Game of Thrones just to become the only fans on Earth to know how ASOIAF ends?”

    That’s what my comment was in reference to… how ASOIAF ends. And this would seemingly be the right thread for that, given the fact that the meme up there specifically mentions the story’s ending. It’s not some random Ned Stark or Jon Snow meme. It’s pretty specific.

    And by the way, I used spoiler tags on my original post, so if it gets reposted without them, that’s not my fault.

  • Congrats for the 1000th post guys. You’re amazing :)

    the goat:

    The fact that there are Terry Goodkind memes is an alarm in and of itself. Agree or disagree?

    IDK. I DO read Terry Goodkind sometimes, when i feel masochist, because it’s so bad it’s amazing. Maybe those guys do the same (Although I also read the Inheritance Cycle so I can write posts about how bad it is, so maybe I’m not a good mean of comparison)

    Anyway I’m definitively sure THAT is why D&D made the show. It’s the ultimate fan stategy – I think I want to become a professional screenwriter so I can do the same.

    PS:Jason: I can honestly say that not “pretty much everyone” loves Jon and Dany. The Starks? Sure. But Jon Snow and Dany? No. I know of quite a few people who find them both pretty insufferable.

    Well, Jon IS a fan favorite character, although there are many fans who dislike him a lot. He went up in popularity after Dance, and Dany (who wasn’t that popular to begin with) we down. Or you mean them as a shipping couple? As much as I like the character of Jon, I also like fictional messed up relationships in which characters suffer, so I’m kinda okay with it, as long as it not a sue-ish perfect lovestory.
    Why did we started talking about this anyway?

  • Yikes. Take it easy. A little deviation from a thread is what keeps conversation going. Besides- it is related to discuss theories of the end of the book when the original post somehow relates to it.

    ANyway…..interesting theory. I don’t buy it at face value, of course. But I am intrigued enough to go sniff out the current evidence. Cheers!

    Also, D & D have said they don’t know EVERYTHING regarding the ending. They only know certain directions and such. Maybe what happens to some or most of the important guys- Dany, Jon, and the Starks or something. GRRM is very tight lipped, even with his editor. So if GRRM dies, he takes a lot of it with him. Bugger.

  • Hmm … that would mean that Lightbringer gets tempered in either Cersei or Brienne. Both options have such deliciously dramatic repercussions, too!

    Whee! Let’s muddy the mystery even more :D

  • knowing them a little and working with them a little more i can assure everyone that THATS the ONLY reason they did it!

  • the goat,

    Fair enough. :) On another note, that comic is so cute, pathetic and accurate all at the same time.

    miltos yerolemou,

    We’re all just mad they thought of it first. Of course, there’s the whole being incredibly talented/working in film thing they have going for them, but whatever. I’m going to ignore that in favor of being SUPER JEALOUS, AH GOD WHY DIDN’T I MAKE MY MOVE?? ;)

  • When he’s not too busy, he also teaches us how to kill each other with swords.

    Which often comes in handy, though sometimes not.

  • Totally OT:

    So I’m flipping quickly through the ads in my local Sunday paper this morning. Target advertises the Amazon Kindle for $79 with quite a large picture in the ad. I’m not interested, but the book they show on the Kindle immediately catches my eye. The first word I saw was “Tyrion”. Now how often do you see that name in daily life?! Sure enough, a page from ‘Dance’ is shown on the Kindle!

    KEWL!

  • Alright! Alright! I give in to your demands! I agree to settle this pointless Blu-Ray/DVD debate using awesome rare Radiohead vids as examples!

    Just please stop undressing me with your eyes for no reason! Its freezing, even in your imagination!

    So first we have “Killer Cars,” an acoustic VHS recording from Japan in 1994.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWH7fBEfbew

    “Wrap me up in the back of a trunk
    Packed with foam and blind drunk
    They won’t ever take me alive
    ’cause they all drive…killer cars”

    Notice how the video quality makes his hair look even more terrible. And there’s an obvious hiss on the audio.

    You can barely hear the awesomeness. No, wait, you can still hear it. Regardless, VHS sucks.

    Next we have another videotape. 1997, Bill Graham Civic in San Fran (my 1st show, woot!) Here is “Banana Co:”
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhwwCUtqBbY

    “Oh, Banana Co, we really love you,
    and we need you,
    & oh, Banana Co,
    we’d really love to believe you,
    but, everything’s burning down…”

    Marked improvement in video, but the audio is still insufferable. This is when I first realized Jonny was a motherfucking genius, and videotape just ain’t loud enough. VHS still sucks.

    Yay, digital! Next is a handheld cam from 2001 (again Japan). Thom’s solo acoustic masterpiece “True Love Waits:”
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKGHVpV7V3k

    “I’ll drown my beliefs,
    to have your babies.
    I’ll dress like your niece,
    and wash your swollen feet.
    Just, don’t leave…don’t leave…”

    So digital is obviously > VHS. More pixels = more fun. Especially with a handheld, finally the masses get a chance to be a director.

    Next time, the final battle, DVD vs Blu-Ray!

    To hijack this thread even more, I’d just like to say thank you to Miltos for Hububb. ‘This is no ordinary town. This is no ordinary tower…’ :D

  • EvilPicnic,

    you have got to be kidding!!!
    ARGH
    Now thats a blast from the past….thanks so much
    this thread has been well and truly hijacked
    sorry folks
    normal transmission will continue after this break….

  • I will always have a soft spot in my heart for VHS! I will permit no one to gainsay its world-shattering impact upon history!!!11!eleven!!!

  • Okay so there is this very large GoT Sorority FanBase in the Midwest and pretty much all of us just want to know what Richard Madden’s full birthdate is… If anyone has any guesses let us know :)

  • Lol. I don’t think he told them how it ends, but maybe what characters and events are and aren’t important in the long run.
