    Speaking of Stannis and Blackwater, what Davos said in this episode is now amusing:

Pale seems like a good poetic translation to me to convey the sickly nature of the coloration, but it's also ambiguous because it can lead people to think it means "white."
    Like, I know this is just me being ornery right now in regards to your strangely off-topic posts on what you think a word is from an old translation from hundreds of years ago while ignoring its meaning for those hundreds of years since but... but I just can't help myself. Someone, please stop me.

    THAT SAID

    pale
    /pāl/
    adjective
    1. light in color or having little color.
    "choose pale floral patterns for walls"
    synonyms: light, light-colored, pastel, neutral, light-toned, muted, subtle, soft, low-key, restrained;

    verb
    1. become pale in one's face from shock or fear.
    "I paled at the thought of what she might say"
    synonyms: go/turn white, grow/turn/become pale, blanch, blench, lose color;
    Glad we cleared simple word meaning up.

    Haha, remember how only 4 episodes he was proposing Jon and Daenerys get married so Westeros could be ruled by "a good man, and a just woman"?

    Something can be light in color, hence "pale," without being white. White is always pale, but pale isn't always white. I also don't know what evidence you have that "pale," specifically in reference to the biblical passage, has been interpreted as white for hundreds of years. It may have, but I know of no evidence for this.

    I mean I literally linked you the technical description that includes the word white. I don't know what more you want here.

    I have to assume you're deliberately troutposting because the alternative explanation would be that you truly don't understand how dictionaries work.

    You need to learn the actual definition of troutposting. troutposting is always deliberate.

    Me: *links you the dictionary description that lists white
    You: "It has nothing to do with white. Learn how dictionaries work"
    Me:




    Regardless of your weird word obsession. I feel they used the PALE WHITE HORSE to be a "hehe death rides a pale horse, arya is basically death as she killed it and not todayed it lol" but then could fall back on "well, of course, we didn't mean to have Christian imagery in this show. it just showed a white noble thing in such a disaster zone"

    Personally, I'm a fan of it being Bran as an Uber to pick her up.

    It was shadowfax, taking a quick trip from one fantasy realm to another.

    Okay. You're probably right. I don't expect the GOT showrunners know the Greek text or are particularly well-schooled in Biblical lore in general, so yeah, it's pretty likely. I'd be happier though if they found some excuse to give it a greenish hue. Maybe some grass stains. To be fair to them though, the ash covering the horse may be meant to convey the same idea.

    'cause I thought that guy was the midget's twin brother, and the midget is also the Queen's brother. But, ew, incest!

    I refuse to believe this.

    Was so sure there was going to be a "STOOOOOOOP! They have Jamie" moment.
    Ah, those naive and innocent days. I can't believe this wild smurfing ride is coming to an end in a few days. God damn. What an eight years it's been. Also lol "the midget". I legitimately didn't know Tyrion's name.

    This part holds up pretty well.

    The second part holds up pretty well. Unfortunately I did immediately read them all after season 1 ended. Because Robb was going to team up with Renly, his aunt's forces in the Vale and Theon's Iron Islands kin, capture King's Landing and Joffrey would get what was coming to him.

    I mean

    eventually that last thing happened, so

    Oof. You should join a tourney.

    Even the Knight of Flowers, with all his jousting capabilities, would be envious of that reach.
