Renly may not be the brightest, but he’s definitely not the stupidest either. I mean, come on - he had Loras, Highgarden and their money, a crap ton of bannermen, and I don’t think he was aware of Stannis’s force size. The slow moving, tourneys, and feasting were bad ideas but overall - I’d say 4/6 Hodors at most.
The bathroom graffiti pic is satire (I hope). It’s a quote from My Immortal (the infamous Harry Potter fanfic)
Response to 11 Filmmakers Who Expertly Answered The Question “Why Do You Write Strong Female Characters?”:
Does anyone realize that Abram’s movie, Star Trek: Into Darkness didn’t even pass the Bechdel test? Not only that but it showed that shot of Dr. Marcus in her underwear for no reason, and if you count the first movie, 3 named female characters have been in their underwear, and the other one is dead. Plus the movie franchise completely ignored 2 important, reoccurring female characters from the original series. Plus, it seemed like the two named female characters in ST:ID were defined by their relationship to a man, Uhura with Spock and Dr. Marcus with her father. JJ Abrams may be a feminist (or a believer in strong female characters) but I think he forgot about that for this movie.
