Craster's deathEdit

"The scene of Craster's death features a noticeable blooper: In Craster's closeup, as he keeps his mouth open, a white cubic device can be briefly, but clearly seen resting on his tongue. This device is obviously used to sprout fake prop blood from a dying character's mouth"

No. That's the dagger in his mouth. So little blood is coming out of Craster's mouth that he could blatantly just be *spitting it out under his own power*, not requiring some sort of complex mechanism.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 02:26, June 14, 2013 (UTC)

High ValyrianEdit

Do you have any idea or citation to back up the claim that Jaqen H'ghar's speech pattern is related to High Valyrian?--The Dragon Demands (talk) 02:16, June 14, 2013 (UTC)

In the Daenerys storyline, the subtitled dialogs display this feature. For example Grey Worm says "this man thanks you" (can't remember now if it was Grey Worm and if he spoke exactly those lines, but that's what I noticed). The use of "this man" instead of "I" was noticeable in Valyrian dialog in several points, if not always. MoffRebusMy Talk 08:49, June 15, 2013 (UTC)
...(sigh)...That isn't "High Valyrian" dialogue. That's just how the Unsullied are trained to talk, because they are slaves. They are stripped of all individuality and forbidden to use personal pronouns, either for themselves ("I" becomes "this one") or other Unsullied ("he" becomes "that one"). Missandei was also trained to speak this way until Daenerys told her not to, but with the Unsullied it has been drilled into them so much that they keep doing it. Didn't you pause to notice the difference between the two? The Unsullied DO NOT speak the way Jaqen does. The Unsullied use impersonal demonstratives - "this one, that one" - while Jaqen uses indefinite articles - "a girl carries a secret? A man knew" = "You carry a secret, girl? I knew." These are two entirely separate grammatical structures. You'd know that the Unsullied talk this way, due to being slaves, if you were more familiar with the books. I've had to make far too many corrections to your limited edits to this wiki so far.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 18:10, June 15, 2013 (UTC)
It's true that I'm not familiar with the books. Sorry for your trouble. MoffRebusMy Talk 09:38, June 16, 2013 (UTC)
