And the Scariest Person on Game of Thrones is…

…Stannis’s wife, Selyse Baratheon.

I swear to you, when I saw her on S4E2, I literally had CHILLS down my spine. That’s how crazy she is. Melisandre is also supposed to be a fanatic, but she has a kind of a trolly vibe about her. She also seems more mysterious than scary. Selyse, on the other hand, is an obvious fucknut.

Never forget what you are: A Rough Classification of POV Characters

******!!!!!SPOILERS!!!!!*****

Happy Season Four of Game of Thrones! One of my wild predictions already came true—Oberyn did get some sexy time, including with a dude. Oberyn is a darn fine piece of ass! But my post is going to be not about him or even GoT, but about nerdy book-related stuff.

While reading A Song of Ice and Fire, I noticed that the POVs were not created equal. Of course, they all differ in importance—we and GRRM care more about Tyrion than we do about all those “Oreo” dudes from the fourth book—but there’s more to it. In the case of each POV, GRRM emphasizes a different function in relation to the story. According to that emphasis, I’ve grouped the POVs into three categories.
