I actually think that Cersei is better in the books. I like seeing her tortured psyche at work.

That’s not to say she’s bad in the show, it’s just I liker her evil persona better.

And Joff is more of a dick in the show lol.

Cersei is already a bad character in the book series; there was no need to make her actually worse by giving her empathy.

I must be the only Cersei fan I know sad. I’m also the only Theon fan I think sad.

;( It’s because Cersei is a little bit of a complete ass.
Nah but I came across a guy who’s completely in love with her haha. XD

=S I feel so sorry for Theon. He did some stupid things but under harsh circumstances.

I’ve always loved Theon, but everybody thinks he became great when:

He became Reek. He was still as entertaining as he was before he was turned into Reek IMO.

As much as I love to hear Cersei talk, when the hell are we gonna get an actual trailer?

We 2 months away from the new season.

Not very often that a scene is better than its book counterpart.



That one scene was particularly well done. But more often then not its the other way around.

The TV show nerfed the shit out of Danerys’s trip to the House of the Undying and Arya’s escape from Harranhel and the mob revolt in King’s Landing, and a whole bunch of other scenes that were just so much better in the book.

Pretty much every TV scene with Jon Snow is trimmed down to 10% of what it is in the books, so that the focus of the show can stay on whats going on with the politics of Stark v. Lannister v. Baratheon and the fight for the Iron Throne.

I don’t wanna talk to much shit on it though. Its a great show. I’m glad they made it into a TV series instead of doing what they did with Harry Potter and trying to cinematize it. (no way in hell you could do a Game of Thrones novel justice with even a 3 hour movie; they would have had to cut so much out and it would have sucked so hard)

Here’s something to look forward to a few seasons down the road. (I’m not even going to call it a spoiler, because anyone who paid attention to the end of Season 2 should know that this is coming)



Arya Stark will be trained by the Faceless Men, and she will become a fucking badass death machine.

Actors for the series were great too.

I actually liked Ned Stark more in the show than in the book thanks to Sean Bean’s performance.

So I’m in the process of writing a Skyrim x Game of Thrones crossover fanfic, and its turning out surprisingly decent.

PLOT SYNOPSIS: Parthurnax informs the Dragonborn that there is another Dovahkiin, and instructs him to sale west to find her in lands unknown.

“Teach her as I have taught you, so that she may grow in wisdom and power. Her thu’um is strong."

With these parting words from his master, the Dragonborn sets sale for the land of the Dothraki. There he encounters Daenyres Stormborn of the House Targayen...

(I read some of the prior art in the 'Song of Fire and Ice' section of fanfic.net before starting this project. As expected, its all awful. One-uping these middle school masturbatory fantasies shouldn’t be difficult.)

*pat pat* Because George R.R. Martin likes to destroy everything you love or become remotely attached to.

Oh don’t worry, this is where Dany’s story that shit hits the fan.

Everyone has their best moments in the third book, and not too mention that a battle even better than the Battle of Blackwater is going to get adapted cool. Can’t wait.

Jaws will be dropping once this season is over. I’ve heard that the third book will be split into two seasons, so here’s hoping that’s the case. There’s no fucking way a book that big could be crammed into one season.

Baelish actually has more screen time in the show than he does in the books(and so does Bronn). But I’m okay with that, because they’re both bosses.

The humor from the books is often lost upon the show. From Book 4:

“No man could piss longer of farther than Aeron Greyjoy, as he proved at every feast. Once he bet his new longship against a herd of goats that he could quench a hearthfire with no more then his cock. Aeron feasted on goat for a year, and named his longship Golden Storm, though Balon threatened to hang him from her mast when he heard what sort of ram his brother proposed to mount upon her prow."

I can attest that this upcoming season (covering book 3) is going to be fan-friggin-tastic. Expect amazing things from Daenerys and John Snow.

Cersei has a lot of fans, just the fans don’t realize it because they love to hate her, if she left the Lannisters would need a new whipping boy (or girl in this case).
Theon on the other hand is just generally unloved, his actions and his people seem to exist to make everything worse.
Really the Ironmen are the least useful people in Westeros, the only two people I remotely enjoy is Asha (Yara on the tv show?) and Rodrik Harlaw, who probably won’t be seen for awhile on the show.
