    ... Thanks.

    You've got a loooooooong way to go to catch up to my IRL friends... though I will give you that what you've managed so far is impressive, given that we only talk through the forum and occasionally through MSN. This is why you've managed to make my brain bleed once in the last two years, and why they manage to do so every day for pretty much the entire time I've known them.

    *cough* Bumping this back to on-topic. Shocking that Liadan's doing it, innit?

    If Robert didn't die... yeah, the book'd be kinda' boring - all the KL action would be cut out.

    Robert was good back in the day but now he is a bad king, a good fighter but a bad king and a **** junkie and has some bad qualities, but he wasn't evil, Ned had respect for him back in the day and if Ned Stark respects you you can't be that bad. And if robert didn't die well the story would be dull as hell until dany's arrival. And they would deffinatly be more ready for dany's return because they wouldn't be killing so many of their men in the chaos of the wars.

    Umhh was going to add something witty and profound ~ but words failed me :D

    Well that's not strictly true ~ it's a song for Liadan & Crusader..

    *Runs for cover*

    "Love is in the Air" (personalised :))

    Love is in the air
    Everywhere we look around
    Love is in the air
    Every sight and every sound

    And we don't know if Liadan's being foolish
    Don't know if Crusader's being wise
    But it's something that we must believe in
    Even when they're pretending to draw battle lines

    Love is in the air
    On the forum, in every thread
    Love is in the air
    Private moments where others fear to tread

    And we don't know if we're just dreaming
    Don't know if we feel sane
    But it's something that we must believe in
    When they search for each other's username

    (Chorus)
    Love is in the air
    Love is in the air
    Oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh

    Love is in the air
    In the typing of every PM
    Love is in the air
    When the day finishes on MSN

    And we don't know if we're seeing an illusion
    Don't know if we see it true
    It certainly takes some believin'
    That cupid's struck during the war between you

    Love is in the air
    Every sight and every sound
    And we don't know if you're being foolish
    Don't know if you're being wise

    But it's something that we must believe in
    And it's there when you look each other eye to eye​

    .

    That's the problem. Girls love Rhaegar because he was young, handsome, intelligent, and a musician. They don't really care about his fighting skills, because none of that matters to them. Guys who read ASOIAF, will be more interested in the best fighters. The only thing that made reading Brianne's chapters bearable for me were the fight scenes. If she didn't have any, then I would have probably skipped them altogether. Robert was clearly the best warrior of his era. He fought well enough to earn the respect of even Ser Barriston Selmy, when he said to Danerys, "Robert was a good Knight." Robert was handsome when he took the throne, as handsome as Renly was before he died. But, no one talks about Robert's past handsomeness, but rather his fighting skills, which were the most important thing.
