Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans
Maybe I'm using brute to broadly. What I was implying was that Bronn is a fighter, always and ever. He has no scruples so long as he wins. He was never the biggest or the strongest or even the fastest (I think the books give that to Loras and Jamie) but he always sets out to win. Like a physical manifestation of Tyrion's mind. He's a mercenary brawler who finds a way to survive any situation. I don't mean brute as "big dumb strong" but rather in this sense. And yes, he'd definitely give Sandor a good fight.
I kinda envision Bronn similar to how most of us write Miburo, though with a bit less of the Viking bravado and smaller.
Also, I understand the character of Stannis and it is likeable in the sense of honour, but as a character within the story, you are loyal and dutiful to Stannis, but you don't like or love him. He's a ruler who holds to a definite line of justice and ideals... but he's not lovable. He's not a character who lead men into battle. He's a character who takes people to battle and expects them to fight for him, because that is what his right as being the "rightful" heir to Westros.
It's amazing to me that, unlike in the real world, people on the internet will wear "everyone thinks I'm a moron" as a badge of honour.
