Thought I would share this gem.
This made me laugh so hard!!!!
I am curious about the love for Stannis, I won't lie. I really want to like him, but he hasn't really given any opportunities to be liked. I want to see the man Stannis used to be, the one Davos is so loyal to. Maybe we will, sooner or later.
But please, Stannis fans, share why you like him! I'm really interested in hearing why.
Oh, well. I confess I haven't read all the books (the available ones :)) yet. I'm currently reading A feast for crows in a very slow pace
But so far I found him to be a very dutiful/lawful person. I mean, take a look at this:
I mean, he doesn't wants the throne for the glory. He wants it because he truly believes he is the rightful owner.
He praises honesty, and when people rub the ugly truth in his face...he consider it seriously. Besides, what other king would take a smuggler as Hand, looking past titles and ranks and looking the man for what he really is?
I don't know... There's just something about Stannis and his burning determination in doing the right thing, making the world a better place that speaks of a certain idealism. Just look at all those passages when Stannis speaks about what he will do once he's king (make the traitors pay, reward all the good men). I mean, he is aware that he won't be able to always do that, because he will have to forgive some traitors in order to win the war, but he stills thinks he should, wish he could.
Take a look at this quote
That's when I became a true fan of Stannis. Just take a moment to reflect on it...It's genuine! There's nothing more I can say that can add to this sentence.
And lastly but not least...
