    Condone means to approve, tolerate, or forgive someone.

    And yes, Cat was supposed to have been fairly pretty, and Sansa's prettier yet. But Arya >>> Sansa. ;)

    AFFC SPOILER




    You don't consider hanging her a punishment?

    Heh, she was saying that what was following in her post was an AFFC spoiler.

    Omega, have you read AFFC at all?

    i have read the book, of course i have.

    but here's what she said: "You don't consider hanging her a punishment?", and i don't get who was she talking about. was it about hanging brienne as a punishment, or hanging ME because of the spoiler (still, i'm not a woman), or hanging catelyn.

    that's the problem.

    now i'm not really sure if i should answer, because i would probably end up spoiling some more.

    AFFC SPOILER WARNING:









    Uh, it refers to hanging Brienne, as far as I can tell...

    You: i was just SOOOO afraid, that she would actually do something to brienne or to jaime, to punish them.

    I think what App meant is that she thinks that Cat's already punished Brienne by hanging her, and she was asking if you didn't feel the same way.

    AFFC SPOILER WARNING:








    but she didn't really hang brienne, did she? i somehow got the impression that brienne doesn't get hanged, that she somehow manages to evade that punishment.
    not sure now, really.
    i don't have the book right here, so i can't check. nor will i get my book back anytime soon. sorry for that.

    but if she does get hannged, then it probably is a punishment, yes. i guess. i mean, why not, after hanging you are most probably dead, right?


    EDIT.
    she DOES hang her, and then lets her go in the end, right? i guess i remember now.
    if it is so, then i don't really think it's punishment. it would have been one, though, if she left brienne hanging. i guess.

    something else, all-in-green butterfly-sansa-girl, with your name beginning on APP, how should i really pronounce your name? i find myself not knowing really what to think. is it like if it were french?

    Well, we don't know if unCat let her go or not. All we know is that they were starting to hang Brienne, and then she "screamed a word." And that was the end of Brienne's AFFC chapters. I believe we had an argument in the Speculations! thread in the Games area of the Guild on what the word actually was. :)

    Lol, I've always thought of Rach as "A-puh-leek", (the "A" like in "cat") but I think that's wrong. :p

    I voted for the Arryn's, just because Lysa and that little POS kid run it now doesn't mean that they dident kick ass. Jon even though we never got to see him, is one of my favoret characters and the one that I would like to meet the most. He practically raised Ed and rose with Robert and Ed in there rebellion. Not to mention he was probibly the only thing keeping the realm stable while Robert was king.

    :eek: The Arryns? Sure, 1/3 of the house is okay, but that's not that great a statistic.

    Hey dont blame the kid when it is the mothers fault, he is 5 or 6 he doesnt know any better and he is sick. Im not saying I like him I just think we shouldent hold him to the standars of a regular person.

    I don't blame the brat (you're right, it's Lysa's fault) but the only cool Arryn I know is Jon. Who else did anything good?

    i like lysa. i like her for being psychotic and hysteric, it makes me laugh. still, she is like a harlequin, funny and tragic in the same time.

    little brat robert makes me furious. i'd like to slap him on the face HADRLY a few times, just to show him who's the boss. then i'd send him to some strict teachers for complete education. to north, to the wall, perhaps. of course, after the education was complete, he'd return. it's just my thoughts, nothing more. i believe the wall would make a man out of him. or at least, a boy. because now- he's just a little crippled infant. geez, i hate that brat.

    but i agree, it's a shame we don't get much of the arryns around here. i sort of always wanted to know more about them.

    Well, I'd presume that GRRM will include quite a bit about them in the worldbook. :)

    Sorry, didn't see this until now. You are correct. I'm always coming up with variations of "Appy". Appaliq is supposed to be my French variation. So think "App-pah-leek", only with a little French accent. [​IMG]
