Concept of Ice and Fire

Not open for further replies.
Thanks a lot for helping out. 🙏
While the idea behind it is certainly something more metaphysical, with what "fire is" in the verse, unfortunately is not enough for our ratings. George is very symbolic with his writing, with lots of allegories. He's likening the warmth of life with that provided by fire, which is from where the belief in the Lord of Flames (and Light) comes from with his role as the ultimate opponent of the White Walkers.

But is not enough to warrant conceptual manipulation. The others are correct that this would simply grant life manipulation instead.

If George elaborates more on the relationship between the fire the priests manipulate to the more "divine fire" the Lord of Light represents, then we could get a possibly rating if not a more direct one.
So why exactly isn't that enough? I don't get it.
