In fact, I don't believe there is a Great Other. Or Rhllor.
Many are quick to connect the Great Other and the Others, but then there are those who are very quick to say Melisandre is an idiot.
I don't believe Melisandre is that stupid per se, just misled maybe. But I've never believed her religion is real.
Where is the proof? It's been awhile since I've read them, but other than small glimpses of her fire magic/glamours, I don't remember if there's a definitive way the texts suggests Rhllor is real. I'm not doubting the proof's existence; I just don't recall it.
I'll believe the Old Gods are real because we've been shown the Weirwood powers via Bran and Sam. And the COTF's actual existence tells me there's more to the Old Gods than people see.
Sometimes I think Melisandre might just be having hallucinations from breathing in the fumes of her fires. I hope that's not taken as a joke too much...
