-->The quiet stretched and stretched, until finally [Brienne] said, "How old were you when they marched you off to war?"
"Why, no older than your boy," Meribald replied. "Too young for such, in truth, but my brothers were all going, and I would not be left behind. Willam said I could be his squire, though Will was no knight, only a potboy armed with a kitchen knife he'd stolen from the inn. He died upon the Stepstones, and never struck a blow. It was fever did for him, and for my brother Robin. Owen died from a mace that split his head apart, and his friend Jon Pox was hanged for rape."
"The War of the Ninepenny Kings?" asked Hyle Hunt.

"So they called it, though I never saw a king, nor earned a penny. It was a war, though. That it was."

* The Damphair preview chapter read out at Balticon is a nightmarish blend of twisted drug-induced prophetic dreams and even more twisted reality. But among all the moments of horror & despair, the interactions of Aeron & Falia Flowers (last seen as Euron's concubine) are real tearjerkers. Aeron, whom who have always seen as yet another religious fanatic, obsessed with spreading the Drowned God's dominion over the mainlands. But in this chapter he reveals another side of his character, when he desperately tries to convince Falia to flee before Euron hurts her. But Falia refuses, believing Euron's promises of making her his salt wife. She even appears positively thrilled about Dany becoming his rock wife-claiming the two of them would be like sisters. Of course, Euron being Euron, he has her tongue removed and tied to the prow of his flagship along with Aeron on the eve of his battle against the Redwynes. Even then Aeron(even though he's in no great shape himself) comforts Falia and tells her to be brave, even promising her of a place of honor in the Drowned God's Halls. Basically for the first time in his life, he is not using religion to harangue or to incite violence, but to comfort a fellow human being in pain.

* When the Hound is captured by the Brotherhood Without Banners, they accuse him of being a murderer, and he responds: "who did I murder?" The members of the Brotherhood reply with a long list of names of people who were slaughtered by the Lannister armies, illustrating how devastating the war is for the smallfolk.
-->“Lord Lothar Mallery and Ser Gladden Wylde,” said Harwin.
-->“My brothers Lister and Lennocks,” declared Jack-Be-Lucky.
-->"Goodman Beck and Mudge the miller’s son, from Donnelwood,” an old woman called from the shadows.
-->"Merriman’s widow, who loved so sweet,” added Greenbeard.
-->"Them septons at Sludgy Pond.”
-->"Ser Andrey Charlton. His squire Lucas Roote. Every man, woman, and child in Fieldstone and Mousedown Mill.”
-->“Lord and Lady Deddings, that was so rich.”
-->Tom Sevenstrings took up the count. “Alyn of Winterfell, Joth Quickbow, Little Matt and his sister Randa, Anvil Ryn. Ser Ormond. Ser Dudley. Pate of Mory, Pate of Lancewood, Old Pate, and Pate of Shermer’s Grove. Blind Wyl the Whittler. Goodwife Maerie. Maerie the Whore. Becca the Baker. Ser Raymun Darry, Lord Darry, young Lord Darry. The Bastard of Bracken. Fletcher Will. Harsley. Goodwife Nolla-”
-->“ Enough.” The Hound’s face was tight with anger. “You’re making noise. These names mean nothing. Who were they?”
-->“People,” said Lord Beric. “People great and small, young and old. Good people and bad people, who died on the points of Lannister spears or saw their bellies opened by Lannister swords.”

* [[spoiler:The Red Wedding. Outside the castle, Robb Stark's loyal men, victors & survivors of so many battles die horrific deaths, gutted by their erstwhile drinking mates, burned alive, or hunted down like mad dogs by Frey heavy cavalry. Inside the castle, their lords & commanders desperately try to put up a resistance against almost inevitable death with cutlery, crockery or (in the case of the Greatjon)their own teeth. George RR Martin just ''loves'' to kill off the nice characters, doesn't he?]]
