    Welcome back lifeforce.
  2. Who is Loneman Pai?

    Do you believe the continued "jokes" are helpful to you? I've known a couple people with this tendency - to say mildly disparaging things that hint at their own underlying feelings, and then claim they're just joking. May I ask, how much are you actually joking? And how much are you expressing your own fears? And if you do fear, why do you keep poking?

    Your sharing in this post is far more interesting than that drivel you shared from someone else's riotous mind. Did you catch how Arya sailing West of Westeros opened up the possibility of expansion of the GOT universe? (Wait, are you the one who didn't watch?)

    Except we're directly told by Jojen (in that scene) that there is no one else who can do that (warg into a human). And then there is the later scene where Hodor becomes "hodor" when he is told to hold the door and it ripples through his lifetime/timeline.. I'd say ripping through someone's timeline would suggest very strong ability. She wasn't a faceless man, and unable/ unwilling to give up her identity as Arya Stark - which actually fits like a custom made glove with her saving her brother from the Night King.

    I'm good with a little nerding out, hell I'm good at a little nerding out.. but there are limits as too how much time I'm willing to invest. (And that was a very long copy/paste that quickly proved itself to be erroneous supposition and conjecture - at which point I stopped reading.)

    Still waiting on the 3rd Rothfuss novel myself. Was a fascinating series so far. Just two different "universes" that many book readers came to accept long ago. Kinda like the Kelvin timeline in the Star Trek franchise. Conveniently overlooking that GRRM only gave the go ahead to the show runners when they were able to discern Jon Snow's parentage.

    And necessary for the Red Woman/ Lord of Light arc to fit..
  8. Oops, it's been a minute

    GSmaster.. I'm sorry, but you've got one of the biggest egos here - in which case your actions are quite full.

    The author's writing style. He isn't plotted out, but 'following' the characters where their choices and inclinations lead. "Writing by the seat of his pants." He was along for the ride as much as his readers were, imo.

    House Stark, which throughout much of the series appeared inches from complete and utter annihilation, now holds the crown of both the North and the Six Kingdoms. "When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die."
  11. Omniscience. Game of Thrones.

    This sentiment is shared by my two most vocal (regarding the series) co-workers. The show writers are "plotters", and crafted the arcs to lead to their already formulated ending, while we started the series with the foundation laid by the author, a "pantser". It was more "happily ever after" than I would have anticipated from the outset.
  12. Omniscience. Game of Thrones.

    He went north, where winter was receding, and could not return to Winterfell without destabilizing Sansa's rule. And do remember, deserters of the Night's Watch must be executed according to law and tradition. You were correct imo.
  13. Omniscience. Game of Thrones.

    I really want to know where Drogon went... Jon could not have been chosen. He needed to be 'punished' for 'the good of the realm ' - which he would no longer have been able to unify after that particular act that led to his incarceration. (We do have a "here be spoilers" warning for those who haven't finished the series yet, don't we?) It seems to still be more oligarchy than democracy, as it is the lords and ladies who will determine which among them rule.
  14. Imprinting your desire on an atom

    I would suggest three.. gut, heart, and the good old noodle. Each seems to have it's own wisdom - within a unification.. Anyway, interesting discussion and observations.

    :taking a deep breath before starting the last episode and breathing it out reallllly slowly in preparation:
