  10. REALLY A GOOD IDEA *sarcasm*
  11. Whoever is the war strategist should be dismissed – a just cause.
  12. Now we’re staring at a pitch black horizon, waiting for the dead to have us dead.
  13. Daenerys and Jon, I think you should be at the ground with your troops? What happened to the principle of command responsibility?
