I am unable to discuss that at this time, since I've yet to read A Song Of Ice And Fire.
I told this to Sue, though, and she paused a second, then said "Oh, god!" and busted out laughing.
I think that thought wins you One (1) Internet. Use it in good health.
Me, I'm still looking for a place to put a starship named Pandora's Pinata. :Laugh:
Technically, it was my fault.
Well, then, you're a bad woman... which is why I think Chris is a lucky man, indeed. I'm envious, of course, but you already knew that. :laugh:
Sue and I are exploring the notion a little bit for our own gaming... we're certainly not afraid to mine the ideas of others when it suits us. Our games are one third philosophy and a quarter fanfic at the best of times. And yes, I think that they are the best of times.
Sue is a bad woman as well, of course, and for that I am blessed. :grin:
I'm trying to figure out where he would FIT. The damn castle's already full to bursting with Starks. There isn't really room for a rich self-absorbed asshole alcoholic, although his suit of armor would be bitchin'.
They found room for Jamie to stay...
Well, if you want to split hairs, they found room for the entire royal family to *stay.* But that wasn't permanent. If we're trying to shoehorn Tony Stark into the Stark family it gets a little iffy.
Although if we bumped Theon Greyjoy out and sent him back to his family, Tony could certainly occupy that asshole seat.
Could be worse. We could be trying to fit him in at the Twins.
The other idea we had was sending him up to the Wall. But I can't imagine the Lord Commander letting him getting anywhere near Crester's Keep.
There's so much going on at the Twins that another mouth to feed isn't going to really interrupt things. The only hierarchy they have is the 8 or so people closest to the seat of power. With the Starks, though, you get the feeling that everyone knows their place. That's what's making it difficult for me to fit Tony in anywhere.
And the brothers on the Wall aren't supposed to know any woman. I think Tony would have a slight problem with that.
Hence the potential problems at Crester's Keep. But yeah, I can see Tony not having been informed of that before, and being halfway through taking the vow when he goes "wait, what?", panics, and runs from the room screaming.
God this icon is so many levels of awesome.
I wish I could take credit for it. I made this one, though.
They have an opening, what with Ned getting the ol' Valyrian Steel slice 'n dice and whatnot.
Actually they have a number of openings, come to think of it, but I'm not sure how far you guys have read (and judging by some of the other comments, some other folks are in for a couple good surprises yet), so I'm going to leave it at that. Suffice it to say it's far from the worst idea that could have befallen the Northmen...
I'm about a quarter of the way into the third book. So you may or may not be referring to stuff I've already seen. Hard to tell.
Ah! In that case, both. :D
Remind me when you're done with the fourth book and I'll send you copies of the two side stories (The Hedge Knight and The Sworn Sword), if you don't have them already.
GRRM would kill him, with Tyrion, because Tyrion is his favorite.
