I never questioned the meaning of the word, which I understand, but the use of "vicarious displays" ...
Forget it, you are not getting a word about what I'm saying.

Fighting over my particular word choice isn't really the best way to be spending our time... is it?

George R. R. Martin has many awards, yet he's another author I haven't read... so if you don't mind me asking, what do you like about his works?
____

Anyway, realigning to the thread with a silly question:

What do you guys think... did Izzard see what was inside Touma all along? or does that being exists cause Izzard rewrote reality with his fear?

What I like about his A Song of Ice and Fire:

- It is History-inspired Fantasy - Noble Houses, Lords, Princess and such instead of peasant boys becoming great Knights to beat an evil Dark Lords
- Complex, deep and often unpredictable plot
- Great dose of realism - don't expect one guy to be able to defeat dozens of foes. Even the best knight will fall if 10 weak people gang up on him
- Versatile, realistic, deep and likable characters, with a lot of development
- "Hero is just the Villain of the other side" approach - this means that very few characters are good or evil and almost every character is just a different shade of gray, always trying to reach some goal in a brutal Medieval Society
- Anyone can die - even if you are a Main Character and a good guy, you are not protected from death and injustice by a Plot Shield. Every character can die, lose a hand or a leg, lose everything he held dear, etc. on the next page which makes you care for them even more... be it a chivalrous hero or an evil asshole, fate won't discriminate
- "High on Magic... yet low on it" - meaning that magic plays a vital part here (it is fantasy after all) but it is not being used left and right. Most people don't believe it even exists. This story has a great handling of magic IMO

4 books (starting with A Game of Thrones) have been released up till now with 5th one (A Dance with Dragons) coming out on 12th July and 2 more being planned.
The first book got a TV series adaptation this year (Game of Thrones) and is one of most expensive series up to date. 2nd season will air in April next year,

Preview of TV series

I have something in mind, but there's two things to consider.

1. It's yet another Touma discussion so I'm wondering if I should make use of that niffty little Character discussion thread the nice mods have set up but is under used and overlooked all the time.

2. And this is the most important issue, far more than the first... It's passed midnight here and I'm going to sleep- So another time gents.

So... what would happen if Misaka Misuzu found out that she now has at least 9973 daughters?

She'd probably wonder if they were averse to dress-up like Misaka or would prefer to undergo 'training' to win the heart of a certain spikey-haired boy...

Tabikake, the most badass papa yet, would probably wonder about the policies involved and child support.

Well, Papa Misaka already knows about 'em (SS2)... he just keeps quite because no flow-fixing can save your financial status when you start sending so much monthly allowance...

Or maybe he threatened Aleister into sharing child support. After all, they are part of his plans, so he should 'take responsibility'.

Wait a sec, that sounds wrong on so many levels...

While we are talking about Misaka Family... are Mikoto's and Touma's now living in the same town or have I understood it wrong?

He doesn't know 10000 were killed though, I wonder how would he react to that...

About Misuzu, I can picture her thinking of a method to name them all.

Oh, I can't wait till holidays come... Touma will feel so lucky when he finds out that his "peaceful" holidays will actually have quite a bit of Railgun in them XD

They do go sometimes home... at least once a year I hope...

if you are talking about the fathers then what if touma isn't home when they come?

i wonder what tabikake's reaction will be if he finds out that mikoto likes touya's son,if he even remembers him that is.

Lol, his skill is to find what no one sees right? so finding a weakness in the windowless building would be right up his alley.

... Personally, I want to see an Ollerus-Tabikake alliance against Aleister.

Tabikake first grilling his daughter about Touma before having a 'talk' with Touma about Mikoto would be something I hope the author wouldn't mind doing if they end up together.

"Kamijou-san. I hear you are going out with my daughter?"

"Such Misfortune..."
