Psychoanalyze Qubirī

I am Analyze, the psychology student and more serious of the two writers. If you click on my beautiful mask you can find all of the various articles I've written organized in an ever-so-neat way. I release an article every other Tuesday, so you lovely people should be sure to follow Analytical Madness on Twitter to make sure you don't miss a single drop of the sauce of my wisdom. My articles are primarily aimed at making you think about the complexity of the various things that I talk about, though with a sprinkling of sarcasm and dry wit. If you're a fan of in-depth analysis of themes and symbolism, psychological analyses of characters, deconstruction and speculation on lore, rewritten scenes and a good dose of criticism then you've come to the right place. If however you're looking for something a little more accessible and light-hearted (or light-headed); you may want to try my more pedestrian counterpart Maddy.

From Pit Bulls to Puppies – How the Originals Were Trivialized

  “He’s here. This was a mistake. He wants me dead, Rose! I can’t do this! You give her to him, he’ll have mercy on you, but I need to get out of here.” Moments later a knock on the door. The door of the old manor slowly creaks open and a man in an …

Groundhog Die – Why Hell is Other People is the Best Vampire Diaries Episode of Season 7

  When anyone mentions season 7 of “The Vampire Diaries” I get a cold chill down my spine. A warm feeling collects down my throat and I can feel the acid burning my esophagus. Suffice it to say… I am not a fan. I am not a fan of any season of TVD after season …

Analyze’s Diary – Entry 6: Return to Sender… With a Bill

  A siren blared in the distance. It had finally come. My salvation had finally come! No longer would I be tormented by its inane pratteling! No longer would I be subject to its ear-piercing puns! My earmuffs had long since fallen apart, corrupted and rotten they had sloughed off my ears. Letting out the …

The Dragon or the Egg? – How Daenerys Managed to Hatch Her Dragons

  “As Daenerys Targaryen rose to her feet, her black (dragon) hissed, pale smoke venting from its mouth and nostrils. The other two pulled away from her breasts and added their voices to the call, translucent wings unfolding and stirring the air, and for the first time in hundreds of years, the night came alive …

The Saddest News in Many an Age

Gather ’round children, for I have a most sad announcement to make. I will be away on a trip to a true hive of scum and villainy to hatch new evil plots next week. As a result Analyze will be taking a small two week hiatus (from the 8th of July to the 22nd of …

We Hoped to Kind of Avoid the Expected – Subversion in the Long Night vs. the Red Wedding

  There once was a TV-viewer who’s mother mysteriously disappeared. All that remained of her was a comb with strange red hair and a torn note with the letters G, T and S written vertically. Her bed unmade, her clothes all gone. The man was scared. What had become of his beloved mother? Had she …

What’s In a Name – What Does the Title of “A Song of Ice & Fire” Mean?

  “Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate to say that for destruction ice is also great and would suffice.” These are the …

Fishing the Rulebook Out of the Trash – Repairing Game of Thrones’ Illogical Succession

  Succession is an integral part of the game of thrones. It’s the bedrock for the feudal monarchy the titular throne is symbollic of. It’s what drives on the wheel that crushes the poor, pitiful peasants beneath it like applesauce. It’s what allowed someone as supremely competent as Joffrey to ascend to power, something we …

A Song of Relationship Algebra – Does Brandon+Ashara Equal Anything?

  R+L=J, the idea that Jon is the son of Rheagar and Lyanna, is one of the oldest A Song of Ice & Fire theories out there. In fact I’d go so far as to say it’s the stonehenge of speculations. The dinosaur of AsoIaF discussions. The Pacman of postulates. But why would Martin include …
