game of thrones meme | seven (stories) quotes (1/7)
“There was one knight,” said Meera, “in the year of the false spring. The knight of the laughing tree, they called him. He might have been a crannogman, that one.”
as….”Boy.” Yep, sticking with Boy for now.
Hmm, reminds me of when everyone thought Oona Chaplin being cast as “Jeyne” meant she was going to be Jeyne Westerling and then she ended up being some random noblewoman from Volantis who likes hanging out on battlefields.
So while I like to think “Boy” is who everyone says he’ll be, I’m just gonna wait and see on this one :(
Some thoughts I had about the show’s adaptation of a few women, including Catelyn, Sansa, Melisandre, Chataya and Alayaya. Join in the discussion, I’d love to hear your take on the subject.
This is a great essay, and I’ll just say I agree on all points, especially the changes to Catelyn, who was already one of the most controversial characters. More of the discussion here.
Guys, GUESS WHAT? I really like Sansa.
I get it if you don’t like her very much at book 1, but besides that… I’m judging you if you don’t admit that she’s as fierce as Arya.
Spoiler-y until book 4, so don’t read if you don’t know or don’t want to know.
(this should be a “read more” break…I don’t know how well those work, so….here goes)
just in case GRRM kills off all the main characters in the books, the show can still have someone to take over the Iron Throne.
