What a great tumblr! Thanks for sharing it

Is anyone else a bit baffled by Dany's storyline in Qarth? Apparently she didn't have much to do in book 2 so they're improvising, but hearing her shriek about "taking back what is mine" all the time is more than a little bizarre. Do you think they could have just started with her storyline from Book3, or left her out of season 2 more? I think the current direction makes the character more than a bit boring

^i might mix up books two and three here, but all i remember from her in those two books is her walking from town to town and building an army and trying to cross the narrow see. it's super boring in the books as nothing really happens, very repetitive. i loved her in season/book 1, but after that her chapters became some of my most dreaded ones to read

oh god, her lame speeches that are always the same "mine, mine, mine!" are killin me. she's, for me, the most boring story of this season and i love this season far more than i loved the first one.

omg I completely agree! It's like she's turned into her brother or something - her story arch was so interesting last season and now she's turned into an entitled spoiled child whining at people to give her things and threatening to kill anyone who doesn't help her. Someone needs to remind her that Varys did that last season, and he did it better.

I had no idea her plot line became so tedious, how terrible And I was rooting for her at the end of season 1, now she's borderline unbearable

her plot was one of the most popular (and inspiring) in the general fandom, now it seems she's getting on most of people's nerves. it's really dull indeed.

i read that the dragons weren't even stolen... i liked her in the first season, it was a lot more interesting there, and as you have said now is just her wanting ships (????)

Yup, the part about her dragons being stolen is part of the TV series, but not in the book. I've started reading the book, but I watch it with my friend who has read them and he pointed that out to me.

Guess because she's such a popular actress they wanted to cater to the fans of the show and wrote that in.

imo Dany´s story was interesting because of Viserys and Drogo. Then because of the dragons. But now it´s not that interesting and recently I´ve become annoyed with the way Emilia acts...

i really dont know what to think about last episode!! i mean it was really good but i missed a lot most of the cast (specially jon hehe). I know this battle was important but i got bored sometimes, i enjoyed the scenes with sansa and cersei more tbh and agh she should've gone with the hound to winterfell!!!!

^it was the other way around for me, the battle scenes hold all of my interest
I have a feeling that Sansa did leave with the Hound but I haven´t read the books...
Tyrion was such a bad a$$!
The wildfire scenes were great! so beautifully savage

I kinda want to see the dragons again. I used to be bored with the Daenerys scenes, but now it's becoming more interesting than the other storylines going on.
