If I lived in Westeros and had the ability to do so I would flee across the Narrow Sea until the war is over rather than swearing my allegiance to a house. All hell has broken loose in the Seven Kingdoms and Braavos seems very safe in comparison. It's one of my favorite places in the books anyway.

1)He is the rightful king. That way, you can be on the side of justice and the law.
2)Of the six claimants (the five kings and Dany) he is the only one to serve his people by defending them from the wildling horde. Even Dany, for all her claims to be the rightful queen, has never lifted a finger to serve the land she wishes to rule. Thus, you can claim the moral high ground by siding with Stannis.
3)He's a great military commander (as evidenced by his crushing of Victarion and the iron fleet), so you're probably going to stand a decent chance of winning and therefore surviving battles.
4) Anyone can rise high in his service, even a former smuggler of low birth. All they need do is demonstrate great honor, ability, and loyalty. That way, no matter who you are are how low you were born, you may rise high.
5) Most importantly, he is the only ruler to realize the threat the Others pose and actively prepare to fight them. If you would rather the seven kingdoms weren't completely obliterated by a horde of inhuman monsters, your best hope is Stannis.
Thus, if you are just, moral, self-serving, ambitious, or fond of not being a wight, Stannis is your man.

I would also feel very out of place in the hot, dry southern lands. Dorne, Braavos etc. just doesn't attract me.
I also agree with the Lord of Light "rubbing me the wrong way" as King_Baratheon put it. If I would declare for a religion, and that's a big if, it would probably be the Old Gods. It seems like a very humble and tranquil religion. The Lord of Light gives me a very medieval Catholicism feel, and that's not exactly a religion I want to touch.
So, the Night's Watch it is. Maybe at the Shadow Tower?

If things in Westeros ended without Dany ever landing and taking the Iron Throne, I would support my Liege Lord's son and rightful heir Jon Targaryen-Stark.

Isn't that more the Faith of the Seven?

- 7-in-1, like 3-in-1
- Father = Father, Smith = Son, Stranger = Holy Spirit, Maid + Mother = Mary
- High Septon = Pope, Most Devout = cardinals, septons = priests, brothers = monks, sisters = nuns
- Armed religious orders
- Kings "blessed," thus deriving authority from
- Inquisition-type feel with these trials
- Replaced paganism (Old Gods of trees)

I've always kinda liked Vikings/raiders...so, Greyjoy caught my attention immediately. (tho' I started out liking the Starks first, but that quickly passed after the first book /tongue.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':P' /> )
Asha for queen of Westeros! /laugh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':laugh:' />
