asoiaf major acarna - north edition - XVI The Tower (Lyanna Stark)

 The tower in major arcana tarot represents change, disaster, and upheaval, all of which reflect Lyanna as she was kidnapped and taken to the Tower of Joy at age 16 by Rhaegar Targaryen. Her disappearance led to a war, to her death at a young age, and ultimately to a change to the monarchy, bringing Robert Baratheon to the throne.

anonymous asked:

I'm not sure I agree with your signaling out of GRRM's descriptions/denial of interiority to Lemore and the girl in the manse. Is it really realistic to expect GRRM to go into significant character-building and self-agency for each person he introduces? Lemore's story isn't over yet and the depravity of the manse girl interaction is intentional. The reader is meant to be uncomfortable and the denial of that interiority is almost certainly authorial intent, not sloppy or inattentive writing.

I know full well the reader is supposed to be uncomfortable during these scenes; I say so repeatedly in the posts in question. What I object to is female characters being splayed out for our gaze as signposts of how degraded and lost Tyrion is, and given little else to do. That setup devalues both the women involved and Tyrion’s very genuine and almost intolerable pain by weaponizing that pain so crudely and ham-handedly. It’s lazy, unempathetic writing for every character, and the result, for me, is more repulsion than discomfort.

Moreover, given the self-contained education scenes set aside for Duck and Haldon, it’s glaring that we never actually see Lemore instructing Aegon in religious matters. Why does Duck get a backstory that personalizes the appeal of Varys’ populist frame to Aegon’s campaign, and Haldon gets to show off what he knows and loves about history, cyvasse, and shit-talking, but Lemore is largely reduced to fending off Tyrion’s creeping? Really, why is there no scene of her explaining the Seven-as-One in a really powerful and memorable way that clearly sticks with Aegon and he repeats it with his own political spin to the Sparrows and etc. Showing us that scene would’ve displayed her passion, knowledge, and love for her charge, all of which we are mostly told about rather than shown. GRRM’s cynicism regarding the Faith of the Seven works best when leavened with grace and empathy (see especially the Quiet Isle), and he missed an opportunity with Lemore.

Yes, it’s authorial intent. So what? Of course GRRM made choices, I’m saying they were bad ones! But to be fair, what he’s trying to do with Tyrion in Dance is really really hard to pull off. Triangulating Tyrion’s nihilism with our preconceptions and the propulsive needs of the larger narrative required exquisite balance, and on the whole, I think GRRM got it right (emotionally, logistically, etc.) far more often than Dance’s reputation suggests. Yet I do think he very conspicuously took a lazy shortcut with multiple female characters, and I also think that sucks. This is mitigated, as I’ve said, by the times he comes through: the washerwoman in Pentos, the Widow of the Waterfront, and above all Penny. And no writer’s perfect, I’m not condemning GRRM here! This isn’t a dealbreaker, but it is a persistent and significant flaw.
