You're not going to believe this, but I'm talking about the recently ended My Little Pony Friendship is Magic... which was able to garner an unexpected adult fandom called Bronies... I was one of them. And one of the final villains was a filly called Cozy Glow. Now, you'd expect child villains to be reformed, or have a reveal on what causes their actions. Abusive or corrupting parents? A lack of emotional and mental maturity? Being abandoned or orphaned or unwanted? None of those are revealed, in fact no backstory was revealed. She's just a badly written twist villain who was KILLED in the finale. Needless, half of the fandom found such a cowardly move repugnant.
Now granted Game of Thrones had Ollie and Joffrey. But one could argue that Joffrey was spoiled and had no choice but to be axe crazy because of his inbreed birth. And Ollie was just as much the victim as he was the villain, and Jon came to later regret hanging him. And I consider his "exile" back to the Night's Watch his "punishment".
And if fans really want to see a bad final season, just look at MLPFIM, how dare something that actively promotes friendship and forgiveness, approve of child murder?
She was, when Margery was queen.
He means to turn Westeros into a theocracy. He was a zealot. But he fasted himself to death, because he thought food was of the world, and the world was sinful.
It got one from me. But toxic fans and book purists cannot be satisfied.
And people still complain it was bad writing. Even though Martin endorsed ALL of it. EVERYTHING that happened, gained a thumbs up from Martin himself.
He also burned books that contradicted the Seven. And he imprisoned his sisters to "keep them from temptation".
Well, when it comes to being naive or being evil, naive takes the win. By the way, have you ever noticed a sort off Snow White theme with Sansa and Cersei? Cersei is a beautiful woman on the outside, but on the inside of her is pure ugly. She has been told that a "younger and more beautiful queen" will take away everything she holds dear. Sounds an awful lot like being told that she's no longer the fairest in the land. She finds comfort in Jaimie, and says that she sees herself in him. What do we see ourselves in? Mirrors.
Cersei fears that Sansa could become this queen, and I beat the reason she sets Jofferey up with Margeary, is to prevent the prophecy from coming true. And throughout Sansa's cruel treatment as a prisoner at KL, who is one of the few who actively care for her? Tyrion, who is a dwarf. And he remains an ally of hers. And in a way, Sansa IS this younger and more beautiful queen, as she unknowingly plays a role in Joffrey's death, and frees the North from KL, preventing anyone from wielding the same power that Cersei loved.. And later she becomes Queen herself.
Old Gods rest her soul. Old Gods damn her father.
Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo!
^ It's like if someone found the Evil Queen from Snow White fairer and more likeable than Snow White herself... see the problem here?
^ True. And I did like him better than Stannis.
I'm surprised no one has voted for Baelor. Yes, wasn't as axe crazy as the others on the list, but he was a delusional zealot.
And from I know of Robert, I can see why she would reject him.
Interesting casting choices.
I... I honestly don't know. Long may Sansa reign.
^^^^ Because Gendry was a pretty decent person compared to the others.
^^ She was a Targaryean Queen who was King Aerys I only child from his first wife. She fought her half brother Aegon II for the Iron Throne... both died.
