    Mid 30s. She was 13.

    Besides, I'm not in love with him, except in a platonic sense. Like I stated above, it's appreciation of aesthetic beauty and romantic ideals (OK, and pissing off Cru's always amusing... :D).

    Mid 30s...I thought so...but still...YUCK, all the same.

    You're not in love with him? Ah...but the way you swooned over him made me think otherwise. :p

    It's an acronym. I got tired of typing appreciation of aesthetic beauty and romantic ideals over and over again. AoABaRI + POC (Pissing off Cru :D.)

    Well I'm afraid you'd have to use that acronym for quite a while...because there IS a blurred line between AoSABaRI (and swooning) and sexual affection and some people won't be able to define your feelings, remember that :p

    i dont need 24 hours it took less than a minute from reading your prattle. andyway where were we:




    Oh please. have you all forgotten what Martin is trying to do with ASoIaF? he is breaking the stereotypes, there are no white knights (metaphorical) and gallant heroes in westeros, there are puppets and fools. Everyone is after their own purpose and no one is there as a hero unless it will get themselves far.

    No white knights.

    No romantic ideals.

    No Fairy tales.

    youre chasing after the stereotypical fantasy story, looking for a warm story to dream about when this goes agaisnt the very ideals of the story itself, that these ideals are ficticious and the real world is very different. Youre praying for the R+L=J but we all know martin is one for killing off our hopes for shock.


    You know im right. Face it gals, YOURE SANSA!

    And the guys are back infront with a Vengeance :) ^^^

    Show me something that isnt Speculation that backs up R + L.

    Gallant Knights? I got one for you... how about Ser Marq Piper, He's pretty gallant. And probably did alot more Gallant stuff than Rhaegar

    Dondarion would be a good example of the gallant white knight. And R+L=J if you say otherwise again I'll mail you some white powder!! ok it'll be baking soda and not Anthrax but you still won't know it except that I just told you. Damn!!!
    GRRM likes to disappoint us yes but I don't think so in this. He's built it too much. Just like Sandor and Gregolem. And if you all try to argue with me I'll just ignore you and be like the girls and just believe what I want to.

    Yes, i think the R+L=J thing is likely, i have never said otherwise. I'm just reminding people carried away by the dieal that it is still just pure speculation, there are no facts involved, the only direct referewnces point away from it. I am merely adding the voice of reason that it may still be a case of rape and abduction and untill we get the facts argueing for the theory is a bit stupid.

    What i am doing about rhaegar is the same, we have almost nothing on him and the girls are gettign carried away by this theory when it could still be false. His 'skills' can be ignored, sure he could joust in a tourney but when it came to the real thing he sucked ass and got pounded by robert. And correct me if im wrong, but it says he plays the harp but does it say anywhere that he was any good? and for4 being 'hawt' we only really have one person directly saying that, and skankerella isnt exactly a reliable source of info.

    lol. Well you cant argue the facts but on the other hand you can't argue what people have already convinced themselves of

    Hush. :p If we want to be delusional, that's our affair. And you're calling me Sansa? :confused:

    AFFC SPOILER: And as far as we can tell, Dondarrion is dead.

    Hey, you're the one who started the argument. All we ever said is that Rhaegar was cool, you're the one who started the argument! :p

    Hey, we don't ask for much. You're right. That's part of the appeal, that maybe there's one character Martin created for us that IS the sterotypical knight for a change.

    Eldest son of Lord Clement Piper. He comes to King's Landing with Ser Raymun Darry and Ser Karyl Vance to inform the king that Ser Gregor Clegane has been raiding their lands. He returns to the Riverlands after this, and harasses the rear of Lord Tywin Lannister's army, which has since invaded the region. He swears fealty to Robb Stark as King in the North.

    Boooo. The only thing I see there that's a turn on is that he was one of Robb Stark's bannermen, but then so were the FREYS.

    Yeah, Beric is hot. I'm not going to lie. I wish we would have heard more about the Lightning Lord.

    You don't know that. Maybe he almost won and then something happened that gave Robert the advantage? I don't think we've heard any details abou the battle between Robert and Rhaegar on the Trident.
