ADwD spoilers!

Am I the only one who greatly enjoyed learning about Varys and Illyrio's shared past in Pentos? Damn, I love Varys. Anyway here are those old crafty mofos in the good old days.

I like it.. however, Illyrio is described as being morbidly obese. I really like that you did an illustration of the less conventional characters, though!

Yes, it was really awesome to hear about Varys past! I think he's a fascinating character, and hope to see more of him (I'm about 2/3 through the fifth book).

Nice image! Unfortunately, my Varys love has shriveled, and I now no longer trust him.

Oooh, that's too bad! I actually expected him to be no Lannister loyalist given how he probably enabled Tywin's murder, so while I didn't see that coming (I mean, being an epilogue POV I knew Kevan was toast - I just didn't anticipate it would have been the spider to take him out), his DwD actions made sense to me.

Io mi chiedo perché i due siano tanto fedeli ai Targ, dopo tutti questi anni. Cosa ci guadagneranno, loro, dal rimetterli sul trono?
Reply
:iconpojypojy:
Pojypojy Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2011  Professional General Artist
eh, ma infatti secondo me non è fedeltà (beh, Illyrio può semplicemente farlo per soldi), c'è sicuramente qualche altro motivo sotto.

:iconcabepfir:
cabepfir Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Sono sedici anni che i due cospirano a favore dei Targ rimasti, e mi viene da dubitare che per gente come loro la fedeltà abbia quasi più valore che per Ned Stark... Ci deve essere altro.

In ritardissimo per commentare ma io ho una teoria rigurado alla lealtà di varys verso i targaryen, credo dipenda da ciò che gli disse il fuoco dello stregone quando fu evirato, ma non so

sono un po' lontana dal mondo di ASOIAF adesso, ma in ogni caso penso che ci sono ancora molte cose che non sappiamo di Varys

I wondered too, but then I came to the conclusion that with only two (theoretical) books to go and virtually no previous information on either Varys or Illyrio, I don't think GRRM would be starting to set up a false track now (though I might be wrong of course). And Varys' actual agenda is still obscure...

I do not doubt his agenda... but I sometimes think he knows how to use magic... something much more interesting than just having a troop of children everywhere.

Non sei la sola, te l'assicuro! Varys piace un sacco anche a me, non vedevo l'ora di sapere qualcosa di più sul suo passato. Mi piace molto l'atmosfera da Italia quattrocentesca che hai dato sia al vicolo che al giovane Illyrio :)

Yeah, I enjoyed it too. Also, the fact that Illyrio used to be hot :D
Varys got quite a comeback, eh.

I wonder if one of the underlying messages of ASoIaF is "Nobody stays hot for long, you either lose a limb, age badly or die young"!

Well, she has also been routinely abused for most of her time in King's Landing, I guess that counts as her own version of the "break the cutie" trope :| I surely hope she stays safe.
