    Myrcella was shipped to Dorne as a peace offering by Tyrion (While hand of the king) during the war of 5 kings to keep Dorne from revolting as well as all the other kingdom's.

    Just kind of a random late night thought. :D

    I've always been fascinated with writing and I even took some classes etc. in Junior College to learn more about it. Some of the things you've said about Plot lines, and character development, and your analyses have always gone a little a deeper than most, and I always have wondered if you had more in depth knowledge.

    There was another guy around here a few years back. Very similar. Fantastic insights. Can't remember his name now, but it turns out that he was indeed a professional writer. I always really enjoyed him too. In other words, I'm glad you're here and I enjoy your contributions to threads like this one. :up: :)

    I'm glad I said something then. I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking that. ;)

    We as a group should probably do this sort of thing more often around here if not just to offset all the complaining. :D

    Atleast, that had a purpose..

    Sansa didn't have a choice with Joffrey when she was stuck in Kings Landing, but she had a choice whether to be arranged for Ramsay (family from an enemy) and chose to go to him.

    From Season 1, it did count - otherwise, she wouldn't have mentioned it to Catelyn.
    http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Baratheon_(son_of_Robert))

    I guess the writers forgot that detail from Season 1. Cersei later speaks of Joffrey as her first born after Joffrey's death.

    He tried, but since he'd spent so much time with Medieval history, his writing all came out like Thomas Malory, and the market for works that maybe two dozen people in the world could make heads or tails of was very small....

    She was listening to Baelish on this one. She wanted her home back and she thought if she could get in there as his bride she could rally the North to her defense when the time came. Nobody realized the person Ramsay was or clearly that wouldn't have been an option. Not even Petyr would have done that to her knowingly.

    I don't know, Littlefinger seems to know what's going on everywhere. He had even primed the little Lord of the Vail to want to help Sansa before she even sent her letter asking for help.

    Plus, it interfered with his chosen career as a janitorial-assistant.

    I'm going to disagree with you and agree with Sansa on that point. Petyr must have known or else he's a complete idiot.

    I would frame that differently, he primed Robin so LF can go up north and take over Winterfell. Petyr needed to also get Sansa's approval so he could marry her and take over the entire North.

    It also was part of the plan Tyrion had to reveal who could be trusted to keep a secret and who could not.

    This was way back... but I'd remember the name if I saw it again. ;)

    We got into a couple of good discussions about the Thomas Harris Novels back in the day. You know how nobody ever changes anyone's mind on the Internet? Well, he changed mine. Guy was really knowledgeable. He hasn't been around in number of years though. :cool:
