i wouldn't call it close/friendly so much as usagi and pyra haven't done anything punishable and are some of the most active players in the game so there's no way to justify blocking them out of things, unfortunately. ymmv but i always assumed the niceness was like the mod version of customer service face

Re: Why I've never been one for Dany

the plot armor where inexplicably she's been able to win every single battle and unlike people like Tywin or Robb she's never had any kind of training for that stuff

otoh, i like that she's naturally gifted at something and don't particularly see what's wrong with that. she also heard advice from her councilors and didn't make all the decisions on her own.

I still remember when she gives the Shavepate approval to torture a guy's daughter in the hopes he'll give them some information. And Barristan even outright trying to explain to her that Ned Stark was not a bad dude only for Dany to just go "lol, don't care".

yeah, that first part was evidence that she can be carelessly cruel when she's angered; we saw the same thing with crucifying the masters. but as to the second, you need to keep in mind that the rebellion is dany's life. it's her past and her present and her future. i've seen a lot of people get angry that she brushed off barristan's defense of ned, but whereas everyone in westeros has had years to move on, this is someone who has spent her entire life being fed an insane person's side of the rebellion, an us versus them scenario where the 'us' did no wrong. the stories she's heard are so abhorrent, in particular what happened to elia and her niece and nephew, that it's enough to instill in her a long-lasting anger and feeling of being wronged. not to mention, thanks to the 'them' in this scenario, she's had to grow up destitute, abused by her brother, and make a number of dangerous gambles to survive. is it nuanced thinking to lump all the 'traitors' together? no. but i don't blame her for being in no mood to contemplate the merits of eddard stark, robert baratheon's right-hand man. why would she want to? she's still stuck in the rebellion, and to acknowledge that her enemies were just people and not monsters poses a threat to her entire sense of moral justification to take back the iron throne.

And like, for what purpose is all of this? If Dany's not the Prince That Was Promised (Varys certainly didn't intend her to be in the books, what with Aegon VI) and doesn't contribute meaningfully to the saving Westeros, then all her stuff's been a waste of time. If her dragons just strafe all the White Walkers in the last five seconds of the show then it's a Deus Ex Machina no matter how long they were around and playing a role.

this entire paragraph just reads like silly pessimism to me. i think it's clear that while dany and her dragons are needed to wipe out wights/others and help the narrative reach the ending, they will not be the ultimate solution.

i support your right to dislike whatever character for whatever reason; i just also sympathize with dany a lot. she's had it rough, and i would say that her 'plot armor' effect is much diminished by the fact that she's fucked up right and left. she wants to do good (her compassionate side) and is bad at it (her dragon side); that's her tragedy, and one of the many reasons that to me, she's a great character.

lmao why are other women always so nasty and judgmental toward women who like to go bare

newflash the preference does not always have to do with men, attracting men, or "hentai and lolita" which is honestly a new one and y'all who get all judgy and NO HAIR IS GROSS/PREPUBESCENT are just as bad as folks who insist all women need to shave

on top of all the above, she's joked about pedophilia being illegal "unfortunately" and has fake panic attacks to guilt-trip you when you call her out or ask her not to tag you

i'm surprised she's running an event where her character is technically a 'bad guy' because she can't handle negative cr or negative anything

I've had both male and female partners. If a girl wants me to go down on her I'll ask her to shave, but if it's a guy, he just has to trim unless he wants me to be deepthroating or going for his balls. It's all about not wanting to get hair in your teeth, it's a standard for a reason.

I'm not really quite sure what caused the shift in mood, but I'm not sure if that's just me and it's blindingly obvious. Did something happen somewhere else?

another reason for lumping all the 'traitors' together: viserys had her convinced, and she is still convinced, that they had to constantly uproot their meager lives and move from city to city to avoid the 'usurper's hired knives.' we as readers know that while this was indeed robert's aim, jon arryn persuaded him to let them go. regardless, she grew up believing she was hunted and afraid, and then she survived an actual assassination attempt by the wineseller. all this stuff: being destitute, being constantly afraid for her life, being abused, and having no true home did a number on her worldview and her psyche. after all this, hearing, 'well, actually, this one enemy wanted to spare your life with the wineseller,' is kind of a drop in the bucket for someone who's stubbornly felt a certain way for years.

I don't play at Ryslig anymore, but tbh this looks like oversensitive children being oversensitive to me. It looks like Usagi was making some comments about a character's behavior making it harder to solve a mystery, and then Emilia (who plays this character??) took it as a nasty comment about how her character's actions were ruining the detectivework for this plot. Despite being reassured with plenty of "it's fine, calm down"s, Emilia is then committed to being upset that she thinks other people are upset with her even though they've told her that they aren't. It looks weird, but this is someone who willingly hangs around Usagi and Pyra so melodrama is probably a prerequisite.

Maybe someone in the game can check out the toplevel in question and see what might have been offensive about it?

i can't believe i'm on usagi's side here, but emilia is being ott oversensitive and i don't see anything in usagi's comments that read as upset
