Is Cersei a misogynist?

<i>She had a warrior’s heart but the gods in their blind malice had given her the feeble body of a woman.</i><p><i>“When it comes to swords, a queen is only a woman after all.”</i><p><i>"The gods must have been mad to waste manhood on the likes of him”</i><p><i>"I would sooner face any number of swords than sit helpless like this, pretending to enjoy the company of this flock of frightened hens.”</i><p>[about Septa Moelle] <i>This one still has her maidenhead, I’ll wager, Cersei thought, though by now it’s hard and stiff as boiled</i> …

Quick Analysis of the Ur-Text

So, as some of you may have been aware, a three-page letter in which George R.R Martin pitches his idea for the original trilogy that was to be ASOIAF has been found. Now, grain of salt – lots of things shift between conception and execution – but let’s take a gander:<p>(WARNING – KIND OF SPOILERY, BUT NOT REALLY BECAUSE NOT MUCH IS STILL CANON)

Does there HAVE to be a new Nissa Nissa?

Oookay, lately I’ve been thinking of prophecies in ASOIAF and how difficult it is to interpret them and recognize them when/if they come true. And recently I read a very cool post in which people tried to answer the question, ‘will character X be character Y’s Nissa Nissa?’ and it made me think.<p>Does AAR need to have his/her own Nissa Nissa? Is an actual Nissa Nissa Reborn necessary?

Surveying the Military Situation in Westeros at the Start of TWOW

<i>A Dance with Dragons</i> leaves readers with many cliff-hangers on the fates of various characters. But it also leaves the resolution of several upcoming conflicts undetermined. Though some of the sample chapters of TWOW have shed some light on the opening moves of the various battles about to take place in TWOW, much remains unresolved.<p>But today, I figured that it would be a fun exercise to show where all the major and significant militaries are in Westeros, their composition and their missions in …

Of Dragons and Wolves: The Parallel Journey of Daenerys Targaryen and Bran Stark

Essay I: A Magical Awakening & A Magical Journey<br>Written by: MoIaF & Queen Alysanne<p>Introduction<p>Perhaps the two most magical characters in the Song of Ice and Fire are Daenerys Targaryen and Bran Stark. These two extraordinary characters have given us some of the most interesting moments in the series from the birth of the dragons to the weirwood visions; from a treacherous journey across the unforgiving dessert of the Red Waste to a quest through the frozen tundra of the far North, we have seen …

Littlefinger's Downfall - Page 3 - General (ASoIaF) - A Forum of Ice and Fire - A Song of Ice and Fire & Game of Thrones

I'm not certain who will "pull the trigger," but I think the time will come when LF realizes just how powerless he really is. Someone will also recognize it an kill him in an ignominious fashion. I think a time will arise where push comes to shove and LF will realize he has no real power. Sure he …

A Sketch of the System: Made in Myr

Do you know of any theories explaining why in the hundreds of thousands of years that people have lived in the realm of ASOIAF, technolog…

(Well, the <i>real</i> answer to your question is that ASOIAF is a work of fiction primarily based on medieval England, and that gunpowder and electricity would not fit with the fantasy themes that GRRM wants to have in his series. But that’s no fun, so…)<p>First of all, I must correct you somewhat on the timeline. Recorded history in Westeros only goes back approximately 5000 years. (Just as it only goes back about 6000 years in our world.) Although it’s known that the First Men came to Westeros before …

Catelyn Stark: A Mother in Conflict

Catelyn Stark by Amok<p>“<i>My son may be a king, but I am no queen … only a mother who would keep her children safe, however she could.</i>” - <b>Catelyn V, A Clash of Kings</b><p>One of the first things we learn about Catelyn Stark is that she was born in the South, and is uncomfortable in the Winterfell godswood. The first line of her first PoV chapter tells us “Catelyn had never liked this godswood” and then goes on to relate that she was raised with the Seven. We get the strong sense early on that she is not …
