Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion
Yep, not a series where it's beneficial to fall in love with any of the characters, for sure. Every time you start to like someone, and root for them to fix the mess that's going on, they usually die pretty quickly (and horribly) after that.
Then again, as the entire saga is called a song of Ice and Fire, I've always been operating under the assumption that most of the stuff going on in King's Landing is meaningless (although entertaining), and the important stuff is tied up in the Wall and Danys (and her dragons). Since the rest of the characters seem content slashing away at each other and/or self-destructing, Jon and Danys are likely to be the only two left standing anyway...
Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by man. ~Jack Handey
