what is tragic sad disturbing dark etc for the most part though these events are no darker than the things we can find in our own history there are also in no particular order and these aren't the darkest events just the ones that stuck out to me number one in volantis every year they hold a vote to elect a new try Ark three people that rule for a year or reelect the old one in one case a try Ark named Hirano had been elected for 40 years running due to him being a great hero during the century of blood after the 40th election he declared that he would be a triac for life this did not sit

  1. How come Blood and Cheese did not kill Maelor? It was Lucerys that was killed a /second/ born son. Seems that they don't know the eye for an eye.

  2. Here's a dark story.

    Due to a strained relationship with my mother I was living with my grandmother and attending college. I decided to make up with the woman who gave birth to me and came to live with my mother. She had come to adopt a younger dreadheaded man as her boyfriend. She rode with him, drank with him, and loved with him, and her once flourishing hair salon squandered into nothing. I attended school and told my mother that the alcohol would be her downfall and she believed me and swore off alcohol. Her boy scoffed "Don't let your son run your life." And so, she continued to drink and I blamed her to it. Weeks later, with a resentment still brewing in my heart, my mother and I argued on substance abuse and her man stood up for her. I talked to her boy and confronted him of how he was destroying my mother. He expressed his distaste for me in spitting and howling swearing. I enraged by his words, but a beat down upon him and after his destruction my mother cradled him and loved him as she once had me. I, humbled by my own sucumbation to anger, decided to distance myself from them all together, and allow their story to unfold as it would. Ghetto times ensued, and I continued in school. I made friends to take my attention away from home, and they became a family away from home. Good times ensued, but the foundation of my life, home life, was still encompassed by ruin. I went to school, I starved, we were homeless, I went to school, I lived with crippling sickness in abadonned apartments, I had a falling out with my friends, and still went to school. But the day dusks and dawns faithfully and we weren't homeless, and the school year closed, and my diligence yielded near perfect scores in my 6 classes. But home was still ghettotized. My mother had bought a gun for her boy who I still glared at out of the corner of my eye.

    I worked diligently, hopeful in my own future but hopeless to my mother's. My mother and sister and cousin and her boy were descending. Her boy fired his gun off frequently, into the air outside, and outside my mothers car. He had nothing to his name, and took everything that my mother had. She bought for him whatever she wished, and for me, let starve out of resentment. Domestic violence was abounding in the house between my mother and him. He was a pussy, and tiny, and not only did I fight him that once, but my mother fought him frequently in her alcoholic wroth. He was a man to fight back. She was more often the assailant, but one day the tables flipped entirely.

    She was gunned down a faithful day, shot in the chest and shoulder and I came out to witness it. Mother mother limp upon the ground, staring at me with helpless eyes, "He shot me. . . I can't move. . .. " I was conditioned to see past her faking, but my sister who witness it all said, "She's bleeding." I approached and saw her boy in the door way. He denying that he shot her. Denying that she was shot. I kneeled and touched her, and after seeing the blood on my hands I was not likely to believe him, "She's bleeding." He approached out of disbelief and I rose. I stood over him as a towering ebodiment of rage, "You shot my mom!" All he had to say next was, "I'm gonna beat your a-," and I lifted him from the ground with my fist. He flew. He landed scattered upon the pavement outside. I did not relent. I hit him more, and threw him. He was a ragdoll. He only wanted escape, but I wanted something else. I pounded his head on the pavement over and over. It bounced. I had him by the hair and his head bounced. I was a yo-yo. Then I her the moan of my mother and saw her and realized I was looking at her through teary eyes. I released him and backed up. He got up and was frozen staring at me like a dear in headlights. Now as I look back on it it was probably an accident, but I didn't care. I hated him for what he'd done to my mother over those past few months and hated him even more now. I ran to find a phone and call the police. And they arrived and time passed so slowly but so vaguely. I remember how I begged her to leave him, so many times before, and the last time a week prior when I begged her that he would end up shooting me, or worse my little sister. Or that in they constant fights, she, my mother, could end up dead or never able to walk.

    She's alive to this day, and she has not walked a single step since that fateful one. I no longer go to college, I take care of my mother, and I pray for a brighter day. I go over that final plea I had with her, and I find I am begging, just as I did her, my own self for forgiveness. Am I still trying to forgive her, or me?

    I can't do anything about it now. I can be thankful for that day. Thankful that he didn't shoot me and my sister too.

  3. You didnt mentioned cannibal bay a bay in the shivering sea where boat are stuck in ice and the revenant of lost sailor feast on the trap men

  4. I'd say one of the darkest moments for me would be when Roose hanged Ramsay's mother's husband and raped her beneath the tree where he was hanging. That disturbed me a lot.

  5. The summer islanders selling their own is what actually happened in Africa in the 14th century. The wars between tribes and kingdoms fueled the American slave trade

  6. Ugh, I've been going through all these terrifying things and I need to "go away inside". I'd have to say that the Rat King and the history of Harrenhal. * hugging my knees and rocking * Okay going to go look to see if you have a history of Harrenhal video. I'd like to request a video about the badass warrior women of ASOIAF.

  7. the westermen should have purged the iron islands completely when they had the chance as should robert and aegon have
