Yay Ayame! I basically just like it to see how everyone dies (haha), but I saw the movie before I read the book so I already kinda knew sorta how it would turn out. But after breezing through the hundreds of pages in a day, it was REALLY epic. The lighthouse scene is definitely the best.

George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.

Jon Snow is, quite possibly, the greatest fantasy hero ever.

I definitely agree with the first line.

However, Tyrion Lannister will forever pwn Jon Snow and all other fantasy characters.

Oh come on guys ... you know that The Mountain, Shagga, Bronn, Great Belwas, and many other notable characters are way better.

Psh. The Mountain was boring. The Hound was (is?) a much better character. Bronn was alright, and will probably be interesting in the next book. Great Belwas is hilarious, but not that great a 'hero'. Shagga was a great character, though.

And lol at Tyrion. You should see the preview on Martin's site for his chapter. I found it hilarious.

Well obviously none of the people I listed could be considered 'heroes', but since when were any of the characters in ASOIAF really heroes?

I like Sansa better then Arya as well. Arya annoys me. Sansa acts as a girl of her status and background should.. Arya was just a brat.

I would have considered Rob Stark a hero. I liked him a lot, even though we never see the story from his point of view.

Liu Bang then asked Han Xin, who had served under Xiang Yu but was driven out, "what is Xiang Yu's weakness? Is there a way to defeat him?" Han Xin calmly replied, "No, Xiang Yu himself is invincible, he is destined to be king."
