Hi there. I'm a college student originally from Upstate NY, USA. My stunted childhood was spent reading too many books and hoping I would grow up to be Han Solo. Still waiting on that last bit.

I spend most of my free time knitting polyhedral dice.

comment Why is Sansa Stark so important?
As of episode 6, it is my understanding that Robb is not believed dead, as he his marching his army South. However, he is a traitor, and an enemy of the state. That is the reason that Sansa is heir to Winterfell.

comment What happened to Gandalf after his battle with the Balrog?
Minor correction: Gandalf was always one of the Istari (there were five). Saruman was also an Istari, but since he joined Sauron he effectively fell from grace, and Gandalf was basically "promoted" to his position.

comment How did Starbuck come back?
The only given explanation in the show is when Lee asks her what she is and she replies with "I'm an angel," and disappears. That's all you get.

comment Why do some directors change pronunciation of character's names?
I have read that the director of The Last Airbender was trying to "honor the source material" by opting for a more "Asian" pronunciation of the names.

comment What is the cinematic origin (first use) of a “Fortune teller will lose powers after intimacy” trope?
Vestal Virgins? This is an historical example, though, so I'm not sure if it counts.

Neat question! I never realized his wristbands were anything more than hospital bracelets.

comment In the Avengers movie, why did the Chitauri troops die almost instantly when the portal closed?
I got the impression it was the nuke blowing up the ship that did it, rather than the portal closing.
