Game of Thrones season 7: each character's strategy, ranked by political science
Game of Thrones’ seventh season, one defined by the show’s most central characters all coming into conflict for the first time, is over. Daenerys, Jon, Cersei, Tyrion, Sansa, and all the rest spent the entire season struggling with one another for power and control over Westeros, each employing different strategies to strengthen their faction and accomplish their objectives.

Which makes the season’s end a perfect time to take stock: to assess each player’s strategy, and judge which character did the best with the tools they had available. Who played the Game of Thrones best?

To make this judgment, I looked to science — political science, specifically. The subfield of international relations has spent decades accumulating knowledge on what causes different countries to rise and fall, to succeed at getting what they want or to fail miserably. A lot of this work applies just as well to Westeros, with a little bit of tweaking, as it does to Earth.

Moderator stungun posted: FROSTFIRE AND GROUND ZERO: DATING?!

As reported by Heroes daily at 09:12 pm tonight Heroes Frostfire and Ground Zero were found standing outside the apartment building rumored to be Ground Zero's in their boxers, heavily soaked due to the thunderstorm raging through half of Tokyo. The building's fire alarm had been triggered, but there weren't any reports of fire.

Hodor, Disability, and 'Game of Thrones': A Conversation With English Professor Lauryn S. Mayer About the Ethics of George R.R. Martin's World
"That a fictional stablehand could inspire doctorly debate highlights not only how seriously people take Game of Thrones, but how seriously the show and corresponding books take disability. George R.R. Martin’s cast is filled with what Tyrion Lannister affectionately terms “cripples, bastards, and broken things” who manage to wield power while facing stigma and physical challenges. Some characters are born different, but more are rendered so by a brutal world, like Bran, Jaime, and story’s various eunuchs and greyscale patients."

"In the 2014 scholarly essay “A Song of Ice and Fire’s Ethics of Disability,” Lauryn S. Mayer of Washington and Jefferson College and Pascal J. Massie of Miami University of Ohio examined the disability themes in George R.R. Martin’s book series. They wrote that the saga seemed interested in “dismantling the clichés of disability, examining the costs of ableist ideologies, and uncovering the fear of mortality and vulnerability that compels people to build a wall separating themselves from the disabled.” "

_9MOTHER9HORSE9EYES9: the mysterious tale terrifying Reddit
The user continued to post about topics including Vietnam, Elizabeth Bathory, the Treblinka concentration camp, humpback whales, the Manson Family and LSD, but especially about the inexplicable “flesh interfaces”, being built somehow by shadowy programmes. A Reddit user might chance upon a single one of these posts in one of their ordinary discussion threads, but clicking on the username of _9MOTHER9HORSE9EYES9 would let you view all their posts in aggregate, and there, a compelling science-fiction horror story was beginning to emerge, gradually more beautifully and boldly written from multiple narrative perspectives, but with a common mystery.

A Brief History of Books That Do Not Exist | Literary Hub
I love books that exist almost as much as I love books that don’t exist. So I have written some books, The Seas, The Invention of Everything Else and Mr. Splitfoot, but more importantly I have not written many, many more books.
