RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

It’s a little unclear what the long-term impact of the great de-Tumblring of 2018 will be; in the short-term, I built a backup WordPress site so that I won’t lose anything I’ve written (for whatever reason, the backup is taking a while to complete, but most of my posts have been transferred over). So as I wait to see which way the fandom will jump, I’ll keep on answering people’s asks and rounding them up here:

    When it comes to the Mountain’s effectiveness as a warrior, I think he easily earns a place as one of the best fighters in Westeros. Not only is he absolutely massive but his strength is insane and that’s what makes him so dangerous. He can swing a two handed longsword with one hand and to him its like wielding a knife (I shiver at the thought of how unstoppable he could have become if Tywin gave him Ice). Now his size and mass makes him an easy target for quicker and more agile foes, but he makes up for that by wearing three layers of heavy armor. Not only is he covered in thick plate but he has chainmail underneath and boiled leather underneath that. Any other knight with his ensemble would be slowed to a crawl yet Gregor is surprisingly fast even with all that gear on. Now he’s not the fastest of warriors and any capable knight could easily dodge his blows in the onset of a duel or in battle. But his brute strength is go great that he is able to decapitate his horse (a large one at that) with a single swing of his sword. All he needs to do is land a blow on you once and you’re as good as dead. Plus he’s also a psychotic blood knight who has no sense of grandeur or chivalry in a fight. He kills quickly and does not waste time taunting his opponent or grandstanding.
