I'm going through this re-reading all the Jaime chapters on this one. I wonder what it would be like to read all the books that way, just follow one character... jarring probably.

I just read all the Robb/Catelyn parts! I'm definitely gonna go back and read everything else, but I had to know what would happen to Robb. I cried I loooooove Robb/Jeyne though omg. I'm glad we have this book thread so I can gush about them!

awww!

Sorry about the red wedding... I know I was in shock when that happened too... Damn Walder Frey!

I finished my read through of just the Jaime chapters... it was definitely interesting. His chapters get my shipper heart gushing.

Robb/Jeyne is really sad... he lost everything for her...

A Storm of Swords was shocking but it was the best book IMO. I love how GRRM shows that honor has its consequences, one way or another. I think Jon's and Sansa's arc were my favorite in ASoS. Robb and Cat's end was heartbreaking but it was foreshadowed. The Freys are my most hated family in the novel.

I like how everything has it's consequences.

I love how Jaime was thinking about all the things that were happening to the Lannister family and then ponders how anyone could call that wining.

To the Frey's there was a whole half the family that wasn't in on the Red Wedding... like Robb's squire... the family isn't entirely monsters...

Yeah. I think ASoS was the book where I started to care about Jamie. I thought I would hate him forever after he pushed Bran out the window.

Edit: Yeah, when I say Freys, I mean the Freys in on the Red Wedding. I mean, Jeyne's mother also bears culpability here as does Tywin.

Me too. He jumped into the Bear pit to save Brienne and I couldn't hate him ever again.

Plus his whole story about the king and the alchemists fire and you realize just how horrible a rap he got for preventing mass murder...

Also... my heart kinda breaks for him how delusional he is about his sister. She lead him around by the noise while he was always her fall back guy.

I'm afraid to read any of the posts because I haven't finished the book yet but DANY!

Dany you BAMF I love you! FREEDOM!!!!!!!!! Awesome! I totally did a dance after this moment.
Spoiler:
DANY owns me. I never disliked her but... I never loved her either. I know how could I not after she birthed dragons? But this... wow! I'm... blood of her blood now for sure.

Um... way to be subtle GRRM with Brienne and Jaime's first fight... NOT. Hahaha! I mean it was totally written like a sex scene. "Give me your sword." "Oh I will."

Spoiler:


WOW. All that scene needed was for Jaime to light up a cigarette. I don't know why their shippers are waiting for hot sex. IT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED.

Jaime's obsessive love for Cersei makes me so sad.

Jamie and Brienne
Spoiler:


Worst place to end a chapter ever GRRM. I'm just saying.

And we have yet to see the aftermath of this! WHAT THE?!

Just when I thought Bran couldn't be any cuter, the Frog people (I adore them) tell Bran a story. He's SO CUTE! <3 *squish*

Arya runs away really fast on a horse. She's caught again but I really ... I want Arya as my role model. She is so awesome. Arya/Gendry/Acorn Dress <3 <3 <3

Robb's life has gone to hell.
Spoiler:
It's hard to watch this part of the plot unfold.

Spoiler:
- Oh GOD Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!
Tyrion is MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *sobs for days*

So wonderful but also sad but more wonderful than sad to see
Spoiler:
sell her off like a sow... again!

Spoiler:
She's not BAD I just...

ETA: OH JAIME...

ETA2: Just when I thought I was so traumatized that I wouldn't finish the series... (I literally sobbed for 30 minutes about Jaime) CRASTER'S SONS

YouTube - &#x202a;**** Just Got Real HD&#x202c;&rlm;

ETA3 aka I have no life aka GRRM owns me aka
Spoiler:
:

Sansa, I'm sorry that I ever, ever compared you to that harpy from hell Cersei.

Catelyn just compared Jon Snow to Theon Greyjoy. SHE'S DEAD TO ME!

I really don't want to ship Jaime and Brienne. I really DON'T. But after the last chapter I HAVE NO CHOICE! *flail*

It is not possible for me to love Arya any more than I do now.
Spoiler:


I want to follow Dany wherever she goes... forever and ever amen. She is THAT awesome.

Lord Baeric is so very scary.
Spoiler:
I'm so afraid of him. :sob:

I still haven't recovered from seeing Tyrion through Sansa's eyes. It hurts me. But Tyrion never fails to bring me JOY.
Spoiler:


I'm halfway through book 3 Yay!

I'm all about red-headed tree gods but...

Father: Ned
Mother: Dany
Warrior: Jaime? Brienne?
Smith: Gendry
Maid: Sansa? Brienne?
Crone: Crazy Dwarf lady? Dany's vision witch?
Stranger: Tyrion?

What is it with GRRM and Beauty and the Beast?

ETA 100: I'm so sorry I said that Cat. I'm sorry.
Poor Grey Wind.

ETA who cares:
Spoiler:
Crying again... Will I ever stop crying?
