Series creator George R.R. Martin, Michelle Fairley, who played the flawed heroine Catelyn Stark, Jerome Flynn, who plays strongman Bronn, and Mark Addy, who portrayed the now-dead king Robert Baratheon, are in Brisbane for the Supanova pop culture festival.
This is a quote from The Courier-Mail. This is a quote from The Courier-Mail that lists four figures and three fictional counterparts related to ASOIAF/Game of Thrones. This is a quote from The Courier-Mail that, in contrast to the basic “strongman” and “now-dead”, only attaches the value judgment of “flawed” to Catelyn Stark. This is a quote from The Courier-Mail that singles out Catelyn Stark as necessary to be qualified with the descriptor “flawed”. This is a quote from The Courier-Mail that doesn’t see it necessary to highlight that a man who kills for money is flawed, nor a man who beats his wife and lets his kingdom go to ruin — just Catelyn Stark. This is a quote from The Courier-Mail that reflects what ASOIAF fandom always demands: that “flawed” stick to Catelyn like white on rice, all the while never turning up much in the way of “the flawed hero Jon Snow” or “the flawed boy king Robb Stark” or “the flawed tomboy Arya Stark” or “the flawed warrior knight Jaime Lannister” or “the flawed honorable northman Ned Stark” or “the flawed dragon queen Daenerys” or “the flawed hostage ward Theon Greyjoy” or “the flawed Everybody’s Favorite Character Tyrion” or etc etc etc etc etc ETC ETC ETC ETC ETC ETC ETC ETCCCCCCcccc.
This is the fandom that insists that, hey man, everyone’s flawed so why don’t Cat fans just chill when we remind them that their favorite isn’t perfect because that’s obviously what they think I mean why else would they make such a fuss.
