Posted by Erzsebet_BathoryPosted by xoxfluteI am a Taurus Mercury and my thought process is very slow, methodical and logical. My Libra Ascendant just makes me see all sides and then my Taurus Mercury needs to process all data and make a final conclusion. That's why people see me as distant and quiet to the point of autism sometimes. But my head always aches because I'm in there too much.Posted by alexscariesPosted by xoxflutePosted by Parkourler
I love and hate Aries at the same time.
I find that some aries woman have certain behaviors that are offputting. Many think
they are a strong woman if they talk with a very stern voice, they fly off the handle in public, they interrupt, they barge in rooms, act impulsively snd not stick to plans.
When confronted they smirk or or tell you cant handle a strong woman. I suspect some of those are posting here.
I think thats bad behavior and justifying it with ideology instead of being selfcritical makes them even ore disgisting.
I will never let a person with a temper be boss. My methodical ways arm mevwith lnowledge and arguments. If they misbehave i humiliate them.
People dont find aries in general bad just certain behaviors in certain situations. So if you tell yourself people cant handle you dont own your shortcomongs i know you are a bad person.
I get really furious when they you cant handle me. I dont want to deal with the negativity you need to handle yourself and not dump your butter on us.
Why dont you think about a situation and analyze your own behavior inszead of glorifying yourselv here?
What makes you think we can't do both.
Aries has shortcomings, like all other signs. Aries is competitive, but more with ourselves than anyone else. I think most Rams as they get older, would have some control or another over the infamous temper that we are known for. I don't relate to the not sticking to plans part. I use to relate to the other things you mentioned. I don't anymore. However, Aries don't usually verbally express their shortcomings, regardless of whether they are aware of them or not.
I wouldn't personally say other people can't handle me, but I do find some people tend to have trouble seeing Aries as it is...because Aries don't express well in general, especially when it comes to anger. If a Ram blows a fuse, some people just see that part, very rarely do they ponder on why the Ram got angry in the first place, imo. Contrary to popular opinion, Aries don't just say things to piss people off. It's just driven by the desire to express (what Aries believes to be) the truth. Aries saying other people can't handle them is the same as Taurus saying non-Taurus are just jealous (ie. RedBull's Taurus Envy thread). Both boils down to being misunderstood and how each sign treats it.
I'll be the first to admit that obliviousness is one of the shortcomings. Awareness is just not something that comes naturally for us, imo. So when it comes to bringing up faults and wrongdoings to a Ram, it's a bit of a double standard. Despite Aries lacks delivery and likes to advise people, if other person say something that remotely indicates that they are telling the Ram what to do or even a belittling tone, I don't think the Ram will take it well at all. I can take constructive criticisms but if it comes off condescending to me, it will frustrate the heck out of me, no matter how much I try to understand it.
So if you are confronting an Aries and they take it really badly, chances are they think you are telling them what to do or being condescending.
I agree with all of this, but you missed one key point it's whether or not we trust or respect the person telling us off. If we don't we will either annoy until they give up or just dominate them.
I agree but only relate with that point to an extent, in that my Taurus Mercury cannot reject anything if it makes logical sense, even if it came from someone I don't respect. The reverse is true too...I will refute any argument that does not make sense or has logic holes, even if it's from someone I highly respect or like. Though regardless of situation, I will not annoy them. I will say nothing more than "ok", in response to feedback until my mind had sometime to process the thought.click to expand

Also.. Jon was brought back to life for a reason by the Lord of Light, right?
Has his purpose been fulfilled?
The purpose of the Lord of Light was to defeat the darkness/death aka NK and WWs. That means whatever purpose Jon had, was completed in BoW. Why do we need him for the last three episodes?
He has a claim to the throne more than Daneryus though.
The Lord of Light couldn't give two butters about the throne. Defeating death was the Lord's only purpose.
That was Melissandre's only purpose. It was her quest. If the Lord of Light cares about mankind, I see no reason why he would not continue to care about mankind once the main threat is eliminated.
"In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Lord of Light religion has a strong dualistic belief, focused on the struggle between the Lord of Light, the one true god, and the evil deity known as the "Great Other". The Lord of Light is the god of fire, which provides light, heat, and life. His symbol is a heart surrounded by fire. The Great Other, his eternal enemy, represents darkness, cold, ice, and death."
To me.. this means the LoL has no concern with the material needs of men. Only to protect them from his eternal enemy, The Great Other.
How does that mess things up for your enjoyment or understanding of the show? Do you feel that the major events of this season are coming out of logical order?
It doesn't mess up the enjoyment of watching. Some of my most favorite shows are of medieval theme. I'm intrigued by most history (even fiction history) that predates industrial civilization.
I think what is bothering me.. is that although I've never read GRRM's stuff, his talent is obvious through the first 5 seasons of GoT. DnD had something to base the story off of. The last 2-3 seasons are them shooting from the hip, and their writing/vision is no where near that of GRRM.
The first 5 seasons had me binging back to back just to see how certain character's plans panned out (mostly how they backfired). It was meticulous in the delivery . The latest seasons just come of as lack luster dues ex machina plot points.
I agree. Part of that is that they don't compare to GRRM in the writing department. Then they also cut back the number of episodes, so it's more like a movie than a series.
I agree with whomever you quoted that GRRM started stalling because he wrote himself into a corner. I've been saying for years that he will never finish those books now.
And that's why I'll never start reading the books until he has finished them.
I don't want to be blueballed by his death.
I have no faith in him ever finishing them. He’s said he goes to write and turns to video games instead. I feel sorry for the book fans that have been waiting for about 20 yers. I read them all between season three and four of the show. I want to read the rest. But I don’t expect him to actually come through.
The people that have waited and read about the Red Wedding and chucked there books at the wall.. how dare he leave them and everyone hanging?
I wanted to throw my TV out the window after I saw that episode. I would love for him to actually finish the books he said he would.
Absolutely, but I also have empathy for him as a writer and person. Given how much flak GoT got the for the last seasons for it's writing. Imagine how he feels if he planned stuff exactly like it went down in the show. Writing on that level on internal consistency is incredibly hard. Even Tolkien, who is one of the best word-builders of fantasy, avoided those rabbit holes and sticked with the general storyline instead of exploring grey areas of morality for every character.
Martin doomed himself when he signed that contract years ago and, while I don't know much or anything about him as a person, I think he knows it and has slowly come to accept that he will fail no matter what he writes. Now he just has to take the loss and roll with it and that is as hard as for every other human being.
I think he would have seen his story come to fruition 20 yrs ago (or whenever - I haven't read the book) if he really cared that much.
HBO: So can we stick dragon glass up Jon's ass in the end or nah? *hands him a few mil*
Not a book reader but I think the first one came out in the 90s meaning that not that much time has passed.
There are multiple possible reason for why he is taking so long but the easiest is probably that he burned out on a creative level and has no idea how to wrap it all up in a good way. Every creative profession always has that risk of not having ideas anymore.click to expand
