The death and resurrection of Jon Snow (ops, spoiler alert) created quite a disarray in the Game of Thrones fandom, in both moments: some thought that he should not have died, but, once dead, should have stayed dead, while others wanted him dead but were satisfied with his comeback. Of course it is impossible to please so many different people, especially when dealing with fandoms, and reasoning with them is even harder, but let me just briefly mention why he should have stayed dead.
Some people say he is essential to the story, which walks in the exact opposite direction of what made the series so popular: the fact that anyone can die in the most ridiculous fashion for equally ridiculous motives. So, no, he is not essential. There should not be main characters, or, at least, that was the marketing. There is also the “this is based on a real story, so Martin cannot do as he please” argument and, anh, yes, he can. That is why the term used is “based on” and not “an accurate portrait of real history”. I am not even going to talk about the lack of accurate representation of anything in GoT. And there is the argument I wish I did not had to mention here, the “but he is so cute” one. Let’s just say that, if this were a thing, Tyrion Lannister should have at least appeared dead, right? While some other people should be basically immortal (and are now dead, by the way). So, yeah, there is a reason why Jon Snow is alive, and it is called “fan pressure”.
So, if you didn't notice by the giant image and the impactating quote, I am a huge fan of Patrick Rothfuss. Other than that, I am 23, brazilian, with a normal life full of dreams that are never going to come true. So, you know, the usual.
Final Papel *u*
