    NOT HOT. They're not gallant knights, for one... and they're too loud...

    maybe, but thats a good reason why that he's beeen dead for the entire book, we dont get the gallant knights or it woudlnt be as good, dont get caught up like sansa, enjoy the books for their difference, if you want to swoon go read something else.


    PLEASE, youre being incredibly pedantic there. maybe he DID win and then a quantum sigularity appeared and flipped time round, meanwhile rhaegar being the noble and brilliant savior of the realm set out to investigate, building a flux generator that would succesfully unto the gravometric distortion created by the singularity. Unfortunately this work broguht robert back to life who came and stabbed rhaegar in the back when the job was done and lied about it after.

    Or maybe it DID happen like everyone said it did and youre just making excuses. Ned was there at the battle, he didnt refute robert's victory the facts we do ahve is the armies clashes on the trident, robert and rhaegar went head to head, robert smacked him so hard it broke his chest and crushed his body killing him, robert got a bit wounded so ned took the army on to kings landing be satisfied with the wounding. Youre just trying to defend rhaegar, and ill let it go since youre beign sansa-like and caught up in gallantry and 'hawt boiz' but if youre going to try and use that as a legitimate point, I'll have to destroy you.

    But we do. Joscelin Verreuil from the Kushiel trilogy's a good example. :D

    WE're not the ones who misspell things. :rolleyes:

    Cru, you're acting a little angry. I'm not as in love with Rhaegar as you think...just defending him for the sake of defending him sort of like you don't hate him but attack his known flaws. I'm certainly not "caught up" but if I want to swoon, I will. Part of the difference that you refering to is how each person reacts to the story, and just because you're not swept away in Rhaegar's tale (most guys here aren't, and who can blame them? It generally appeals to females) doesn't mean Martin didn't write it for some people, like us girls, to enjoy.

    ypure not kidding, i forget to tell everyone i approach all debates lightheartedly, so assume joviality. im not angry. remember youre argueing for the sake fo defence, im arguing for the sake of attack, im not too bothered on the matter but i think its more interesting to discuss the matter with soem heat.

    Excuse me?! Since when the hell did name calling come into this??

    I have to say, I went through and read all 9 pages of this thread. I'm still impartial to Rhaegar. Not one of the arguments given was serious enough to take on board, even after you take out all the petty insults thrown at each other. Although I can't understand why people have to keep beating up on others for their views.

    People. Rhaegar is a character in a book. If Appaliq and Liadan want to love Rhaegar for his tale, let them. I laugh at them. What harm is it doing, really? Is it killing you, Cru?

    Such is the beauty of Martin's writing. The diversity of the characters is immense. They can be interpreted many different ways. Can we agree to disagree, and not have anymore of this stupid fighting?

    Skankerella = Cersei. Name-calling is perfectly acceptable if it applies to Cersei. :halo:

    Whoa, Renzo... it's all in light-hearted fun. Read Cru's post. It's more like an excuse for us to argue, which we do all the time anyway. ;)
