    well it was an endpoint on him. Unless he manages to pull through. He didn't look that bad.

    Yeah, it was brilliantly horrific. However, after it was all going so well, and anything on GOT going so well with 1 minute left is a big RED FLAG, I was really bracing myself. Damn Martin and HBO toying with us like that!

    Yeah, I guess Tywin is pretty much King, for all intended purposes.

    Yes, much of his body (90-95%) was still intact.
    I think we can rebuild him.
    (And if he doesn't want extensive dental work, he can drink slurpees and wear a faceplate.)

    Barring that, maybe he can donate some crucial organs for Grey Worm, who might need them shortly.

    God, I hope so.
    Touche.

    Pretty much. As soon as he didn't finish him off, I was like, "Oh crap."

    Yeah, my opinion of Martin's prose is that if you're a speedreader, you won't do it justice. His writing is very easy to parse for fact and detail, without experiencing the actual emotional content of the story. You kind of have to actually actively imagine it in your head, take the dialogue paragraphs and imagine a character actually saying them, their facial expressions, their inflection, etc, if you want to feel any intense emotion -- the reader is filling in a lot of the theatric performance and the events themselves are delivered pretty straight-forward.

    .
    Well, he was a good example of how ESTPs are the king of sexual charisma at least. :3

    It does fit in, at least, with his character persona so it's not something like on CSI where the forsenic team seems to have missed the lesson on "Turn the damn lights on" before gathering important evidence that may be needed in a court of law.

    If type has anything to do with it... I find I tend to experience this disconnect with T writers a lot. Where there is a separation and one cannot just inhibit and absorb but must do the leg work.

    Ne desires speed reading to get the AMGS WHATS AND HOWS done first... and then later one will read and reread things for all the delicious emotional connections and Si framework of history.

    I can't fault it.
    It's another reason it hurts.
    His personal goals had been established clearly, and so he was acting according to them.
    Which makes it the "fatal flaw," like watching a Shakespearean tragedy.
    This conclusion was fated from the beginning.
    He stayed true to character, versus doing something convenient.
    But damn. Sigh.

    I'm not a big fan of CSI and other shows where inconsistencies seem to exist to provide convenience.

    I try to force myself to read more slowly as I age... to savor it before spoilering the details for myself. But it's a conscious thing I have to pursue. As you note, the "big picture" thing wants to get it all in context, so we rush around and try to get a sense of all of it.
