yeah, i'm guessing she doesn't look like daenerys targaryen.

That's ridiculous... everyone knows you can barely sit on the Iron Throne without getting cut, let alone having sex on it.

Check the wrists; I doubt this is anything new to her.

Desperately seeking my dragons?
 
2013-04-09 10:21:15 AM
That's a pretty specific fantasy.
 
2013-04-09 10:27:56 AM
She apparently hasn't gotten to the Red Wedding yet...
 
2013-04-09 10:31:55 AM
I'm betting she looks more like the Great John than the Mother of Dragons.

That wasn't in the book.

So... How is this different than any random fetish-related ad? I've seen ads for BDSM, ageplay, rape fantasies, cuddles-only, and everything in between. There's a (presumably) woman who is clearly expressing what she wants. Whooptie-doo.

Not sure if trolling, but its from the show.  Frankly, I liked the fact that it was only subtly hinted at in the book that Renly was gay, whereas HBO goes full on in your face dick sucking, nttawwt.

Agreed.

How I can tell someone is:

1. Not likely to read the books
2. Going to be VERY sad when the shows finally catch up to the Red Wedding (I'm guessing this season's finale? Or next season?)

On the other hand...maybe she'll just adapt, and want Dismembered Wolf-Headed Robb Stark in the sheets?

Not trolling.  When we watched the episode this week, my wife and I both burst out laughing at that line.  I find it interesting that sometimes the dialogue is nearly identical, and at other times, it isn't.

Having read all the books, I wondered how the show was going to handle the parallel timelines that diverge in books 4 and 5.  I won't say more, I'm not one to give spoliers.

/Tyrion kills Dumbledore!!!!

Hmmm, I may have to answer this ad.

Is Rob Stark short, bald and 100 pounds overweight?
 
2013-04-09 11:00:28 AM

FlashHarry: yeah, i'm guessing she doesn't look like daenerys targaryen.


And we are done here.  If she DID look like Dany she could have just about any guy act like Robb.

I'm guessing she looks more like Samwell Tarley.
 
2013-04-09 11:01:42 AM
If we both look like The Hound, what's the problem?

No, but I think in this case Daenerys Targaryen might be.

+1 epic lols.
 
2013-04-09 12:05:41 PM
This reminds me of that Jabba the hutt fantasy someone had.  Apparently she wanted to dress up in slave Leia garb "forced" into sexual service.  Various comments pointed out that she would be more likely to fulfill the role of Jabba(she weighed around 350 at least) than Leia.

Anyway these adds probably end badly no matter what fantasy you want to pursue.

Probably more like Viserys.

Yeah, I don't see the issue here.

Heads will asplode that is for sure.  I know mine did.

Viper vs Mountain will also be epic.

The fact that she can't even throw in a "myspace angle headshot" Does not bode well for her potential attractiveness.

Really curious to see what happens there. We didn't get many details so far.

Martin adds in throwaway events that would take the main stage in many other stories.

I like that I read the books. I bought them after season 1 was over and read them back to back. I'll probably start again soon. I know they can't put everything in the show, and somethings that are just subtly hinted at have to smack you over the head, but having both side by side makes the entire experience awesome.

Yeah, I think the Red Wedding is really gonna piss off my wife. May have to add this to Walking Dead, Hannibal, and Bates Motel as shows I'll have to watch alone, but this time because she's mad. usually it's because the show is "too scary".

Smoky Dragon Dish: I find it interesting that sometimes the dialogue is nearly identical, and at other times, it isn't.


They have to keep things interesting and speed things up. Also, there can be no "internal dialogue", thoughts in the head echoing through your speakers never really works. It comes down to the fact that sometimes they can't be subtle. I thought the line was hilarious, too...

This, pretty much.

Now, a sexual fantasy out of a less murder-and-death-involved fantasy author's work, that can be arranged with a minimum of fuss. I worked at a few Renaissance Faires as a teenager, and nothing 'sex + fantasy novel'-related could ever shock me again. Ever. The phrases 'Lloyd Alexander' and 'fur-suit' come into the conversation. Thumpings and humpings. Yes.

Once you've shooed that sort of thing back to their own damn tent, nothing short of Nadrak knife-play the likes of which David Eddings never dreamed or an alternative use for the Elvish alphabet out of Tolkein will even merit a raised eyebrow. Some people just can't help what they find interesting, I suppose, and ours is not to question, just to leave out the Lysol and the condoms and try not to giggle when you see them at work.

She may sound like she's not exactly the most attractive lady but if she bought the official replica of the iron throne, she's probably loaded- $30k for a chair...
