Why did the gods inflict me with brothers?

BREAKING: George R.R. Martin, author of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, regrets killing off Renly Baratheon 

I fucked up,” Martin said in a recent interview. “I fucked up. I fucked up. I fucked up. I fucked up. I fucked up. I’m sorry. I’m trash.”


so I’m about a third of the way through clash of kings and there’s been no mention whatsoever of renly being gay

is this just a thing in the show or…?

No, he’s gay in the books, but it’s more subtextual since both Renly and Loras are not POV characters and  they’re closeted. GRRM has confirmed several times that Renly/Loras was definitely a thing in the books, we weren’t imagining it.

They seemed like a couple to me in ACoK, but I know many were surprised by Renly’s gayness on the show.  For what it’s worth, I thought it was super obvious in the books by A Storm of Swords, based off a comment Loras made to Jaime, and a very crude remark Jaime makes about Loras, Renly and swords.

Actually here’s a good website post that outlines the examples of when their gayness is referred to.
(The Rainbow Guard reference is just a coincidence though, according to GRRM. He says he had no idea that rainbows had anything to do with LGBT stuff.  Seriously.)

“they will surely sing of us, and it’s always summer in the songs. in the songs all knights are gallant, all maids are beautiful, and the sun is always shining.”

“And you rip it from my hands and you swear it’s all gone.
And you rip out all I have just to say that you’ve won.
Well, now you’ve won.”

Alex has this theory that GRRM reads everyone’s fan theories and then just trolls us all and kills our favorite characters because no one in the ASOIAF fandom caught his Renly/Loras romance in the books. So, really, he actually just hates us all.

Except a really large portion of the ASOIAF fandom picked up on the Loras/Renly romance in the books before Renly died. :\

Favorite plot twist

Renly’s death

Despite the shock of Ned’s death in AGoT, I still made the mistake when reading ACoK of thinking that the plot would follow a foreseeable trajectory. It’s called A Clash of Kings, so we’re building up the brother against brother thing and that will be the big climax of the whole book probably and- oh shit, no it’s not. I never expected Renly to die that quickly. It shifted the alliances around, gave some legitimacy to Melisandre’s powers, and proved once again you never can tell with George R.R. Martin.
