On my reread of Selmy's last chapter in ADWD, I think I found my favorite quote in the book.

quote:

“You would break King Hizdahr's peace, old man?”
“I would shatter it.

"Do you lie awake at night, fearing my gash?"

I don't remember the exact quote but I like whatever Selmy said right before he fought the pit fighter. Something along the lines of "then come" I think


And "this coward is about to kill you, Ser "

I honestly don't remember if that was actually in the book or just the HBO version.

Great writing, either way.

and yes this a cleverly disguised bump.

Great line.

My favs:

“When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives.”

“What do we say to the Lord of Death?" "Not today.”

Oh and only appropriate that my 10,000 post is in this thread.

According to Random Numbers I am a seasoned Maester of the Night's Watch so compared to me you are as green as summer's grass. So in other words, you shut it

I think the "Stark in Winterfell" thing is very significant and I think that it is the source of Winterfell's and the whole North's problems. There is no Stark there and until a Stark returns the North will bleed.



Agree 100%, and I think the northmen know this subconsciously if not consciously. Stark in Winterfell = Warden of the North. Even the LC of the Nightswatch gives defference to Lord Stark.

Could somebody from the North be part of the Kingsguard? When they make Sandor part of the Kingsguard, Barristan and others are upset because Sandor is not an anointed knight with the seven oils. They do not follow the Seven in the North and for the most part, do not get knighted and called Ser.

I do not remember any Northmen being part of the Kigsguard. This is kinda odd that they would not include a major section of the Seven Kingdoms and one, with wilding raids, probably fought a lot.

Also any of the Iron Born because they followed the Drowned God.

Agreed. The Starks have always been the best House to the Watch. If any person would get leave from their duties it would be a Stark. Especially to re-take Winterfell.

There are northmen who are knights for instance Ser Jorah Mormont.

A select few houses do follow the seven so a northmen could technically become a knight of the kingsguard but I don't know of any off hand that have been.

I do think there has been an Iron born Kingsguardman but I can't think of his name and I could be wrong.

The north and the ironborn are by far the best warriors in the realm in my opinion. Just living in those places ensure a toughness that is not the norm in other regions.

Exactly. The only way to subdue the immense pride of the northern houses is to seat them underneath a Stark. The Stark house has always been just and honorable as leige lords and their bannermen have always knelt to them. Without them in place at Winterfell the pride that is born into the north will prevail and the fighting will not stop until they are unified under the direwolf once again.

Which is why both the Boltons and Littlefinger seek to legitimize their claim with a Stark, be that Stark real or fabricated.
