they don't have important never quote

There will be moments when you are pushed to your absolute limits. It may get to the point when you feel like the world is collapsing in on you. This is important, for it is during these moments when you learn of your true capabilities and how far you can really go. You’re much stronger and resilient than you could have ever imagined.

“Don’t be afraid,” I murmured. “We belong together.”
I was abruptly overwhelmed by the truth of my own words. This moment was so perfect, so right, there was no way to doubt it.
His arms wrapped around me, holding me against him, summer and winter. It felt like every nerve ending in my body was a live wire.
“Forever,” he agreed, and then pulled us gently into deeper water.

  • Me: um.. ok... that definitely sounds fake... but ok. ...

….I do not send them up the stairs, they do not get dressed in the mornings, they do not put the ignition key in the lock, and turn on the engine, and let it warm up and look at all the gauges, and put the car in reverse, and back out, and drive to the filling station, and ask the guy about the weather.”

Re: Rhaegar and Elia/Lyanna - I get his obsession with prophecies etc. but the fact is Aegon was only a baby when he ran away with Lyanna. It is entirely possible Elia could've given him another child, it's not like they've been trying forever and could not have another one. I don't think he could've been THAT desperate for a third child. So I disagree with you on the 'affair' not being about Rhaegar's personal feelings.

Hi! I appreciate how respectful you are in disagreeing with me about my post about Rhaegar, but I think there are some important quotes from the text you might not have considered. You say:

“It is entirely possible Elia could’ve given him another child, it’s not like they’ve been trying forever and could not have another one.”

But this quote from ADWD says:

Jon Connington remembered Prince Rhaegar’s wedding all too well. Elia was never worthy of him. She was frail and sickly from the first, and childbirth only left her weaker. After the birth of Princess Rhaenys, her mother had been bedridden for half a year, and Prince Aegon’s birth had almost been the death of her. She would bear no more children, the maesters told Prince Rhaegar afterward. 

The maesters told Rhaegar that Elia would not be able to have a third child. Rhaegar believed them. When Connington says “Elia was never worthy of” Rhaegar, you have to take into account that Connington was deeply in love with Rhaegar and that he was jealous of Elia. There is literally no definitive proof in the text that Elia treated Rhaegar poorly or that she was a “bad wife” to Rhaegar. As the text says, Rhaegar and Elia were “fond” of each other, but then Elia could not give Rhaegar a third child.

You say:

“I don’t think he could’ve been THAT desperate for a third child.”

Rhaegar says differently. From ACOK, Daenerys’s vision of Rhaegar in the House of the Undying:

Viserys was her first thought the next time she paused, but a second glance told her otherwise. The man had her brother’s hair, but he was taller, and his eyes were a dark indigo rather than lilac. “Aegon,” he said to a woman nursing a newborn babe in a great wooden bed. “What better name for a king?”

“Will you make a song for him?” the woman asked.

“He has a song,” the man replied. “He is the prince that was promised, and his is the song of ice and fire.” He looked up when he said it and his eyes met Dany’s, and it seemed as if he saw her standing there beyond the door. “There must be one more,” he said, though whether he was speaking to her or the woman in the bed she could not say. “The dragon has three heads.” He went to the window seat, picked up a harp, and ran his fingers lightly over its silvery strings. Sweet sadness filled the room as man and wife and babe faded like the morning mist, only the music lingering behind to speed her on her way. 

Rhaegar really did think he needed a third child to fulfill the prophecy, and he really did believe that Elia was incapable of giving him that third child, meaning that he had to look elsewhere. As I touched on in the previous post, love might have been one of the factors involved in Rhaegar and Lyanna’s relationship, but their relationship is a complex one and Rhaegar’s need for a third child definitely played a part.

Reducing Rhaegar’s motivations down solely to mere emotions does both the character and the text a disservice. It ignores Rhaegar’s upbringing as the alleged prince that was promised and how that affected him, it ignores the “song of ice and fire” prophecy, and it puts a lot of blame on Elia, something I am uncomfortable with. 

I would say to remember that everyone has their own set of troubles and dark days they have to fight. When the going gets tough, remember to keep on fighting for joy. Don’t ever stop fighting. Stay in the Word, and surround yourself with those who will lend you their faith when yours feels weak. the most important thing is to never give up and to never stop fighting .

hey! just a couple of things: the reason people don't mind the reset in Season 3 is because all the key players remembered- they're the ones who matter. and rose didn't die metaphorically, she officially died back home because she was missing and was assumed dead, that's the story of how she died. and jacks resurrection has huge consequences that plague him throughout the rest of his life, and he's pretty much miserable because of it

I’m not contesting any of this, athough I find the idea that going missing in one dimension is actually dying beyond a metaphor extremely questionable. My point is that you apparently have all this wonderful insights into the complexity of these storylines. For instance, you make the argument that “people don’t mind the reset in Season 3 is because all the key players remembered” and you would be correct with that. It is all lovely and also very, very one-sided, because:

Doctor: “The Angels all fell into the Time Field. The Angel in your memory never existed. It can’t harm you now.
Amy: “Then why do I remember it at all? Those guys on the ship didn’t remember each other.”
Doctor: “You’re a time traveller now. Amy. It changes the way you see the universe, forever. Good, isn’t it?

Doctor: “People fall out of the world sometimes, but they always leave traces. Little things we can’t quite account for. Faces in photographs, luggage, half eaten meals, rings. Nothing is ever forgotten, not completely. And if something can be remembered, it can come back.”

Amy: I remember you. I remember! I brought the others back, I can bring you home, too. Raggedy man, I remember you, and you are late for my wedding! […]
Rory: It’s the Doctor. How did we forget the Doctor? I was plastic. He was the stripper at my stag. Long story.”

Rory: “Rome fell.”
Doctor: “I know. I was there.”
Rory: “So was I.” […]
Doctor: “Do you ever remember it? Two thousand years, waiting for Amy? The last Centurion.
Rory: “No.”
Doctor: “You’re lying.”
Rory: “Of course I’m lying.”

Amy: “My life doesn’t make any sense… When I first met you I didn’t have parents. I never had parents… and then you did whatever you did to reboot the universe and I had parents. And I’ve always had parents. And I remember both lives in my head at the same time.”

Amy: “I killed someone. Madame Kovarian, in cold blood.”
River: “In an aborted time line, in a world that never was.”
Amy: “Yeah, but I can remember it, so it happened, so I did it. What does that make me now?”

Memory - and specifically the importance of it in a changing, re-writing world - is one of the major themes of the Moffat era. Characters remembering events and thus these events retaining their meaning is a point which is made again and again.
