  1. Fire and ice will battle for control of the land. Jon is ice. There is no such thing as someone both fire and ice even if you believe in R+L=J. The Starks rebelled twice in the span of 17 years. I think they will rebel again. Taking back Winterfell and the North from Roose Bolton is rebellion. Seeing that they have no army, Jon will more likely betray the kingdom again and lead an army of wights and free folk to take the north from Roose Bolton. Jon puts family first ahead of everybody else and everything. He will betray Westeros and commit whatever crime he has to commit to support his Stark siblings. Just as he let a very dangerous element like Mance loose on the north to help Arya he will not hesitate to loose an army of the dead on the north to serve the interest of the Starks if it came down to him having to make a choice.
  2. Calling yourself a king doesn't make you a king. The land you stand on belongs to the iron throne. You have to take the land first and then the iron throne concedes first before you can be king of the land. Balon and Robb tried but failed.
  3. This is really not a theory thread. I just want you all to be prepared. George is not going to answer every mystery. A lot of the legends, stories, myths, and prophecies will never be answered or satisfied. The scribes writing down these stories very much follow the idea that when legends and facts disagree, put down the more interesting. Every writer wants a reader. Every poet wants an audience. A lot of the legends are embellished to make them interesting, to wow the readers. They've been sexed up. Do souls exists and what happens when a person dies. Do not expect this one to be answered. Such a question is still debated in modern times. Who and how were the black, oily stones built. Many archaeological sites remain mysterious in our world. Expect the same in George's story. The Dawn Age. Much of human prehistory is unknown too. Gods. There may not be an all-powerful creator that fits the standard concept of a god, but it does not mean there aren't beings with far greater abilities than the common human. I don't think we will know for sure whether gods actually exists or not but we have powerful superhumans. Are there any other questions that you feel will never be answered? If you could pick one question to get answered, what would it be?
  4. There is a distinction between a "rebel" and a "conqueror." Allow me to explain. Robert Baratheon was not a conqueror. He was a rebel who won. Robert was a subject of his Targaryen overlords. He swore an oath of fealty to the Targaryens. He broke that oath and rebelled. He won the rebellion and took the throne by force. He ruled by force, just like any other ruler. However, because Robert was a citizen of Westeros before he won and therefore was subject to the laws of the land, he had to justify his right to sit the throne by citing his Targaryen lineage. His grandma was part Targaryen. Unfortunately for him, King Aerys already made Prince Viserys the heir to the kingdom. Queen Rhaella crowned Viserys on Dragonstone and that made him King Viserys III. Viserys was crowned on Dragonstone, a part of Westeros, that the Targaryens still held at the time of his crowning. So there were two kings for a time. That gives King Viserys III legitimate status as a king. Aegon I was a conqueror, not a rebel. He took the kingdoms by force. Even the ones who yielded did so because they were awed by Aegon's power. Aegon and his sisters were not the subjects of any of those kings. He never swore fealty to any of them and he was definitely not obligated to follow any of their laws. A conqueror gets to start from scratch. He or she gets to take the conquered lands any direction he or she pleases. What I am saying is, there never was a break in the Targaryen monarchy. The crown passed from Aerys to Viserys and then to Dany. We know that many powerful people outside of Westeros and within continued to believe the throne belonged to the Targaryens. In this sense, I very much agree that Daenerys still has a strong claim on Westeros. I also admit that the Starks still have a claim on Winterfell.
  5. I'm thinking parts of Westeros will be returned to the CotF and the WWs. What was once a large kingdom could end up with only the southernmost lands such as Dorne and the Reach. The best way to fight an army that can raise your dead and add them to theirs is not fight them at all.
  6. Good Morning Clegane's Pup, Happy 4th of July if you're in the states. I don't have a soft spot for Jon. I dislike him. But I will be fair. Jon sent the wildlings to get Arya from Ramsay. He was not planning on taking Arya and then sending her back to Ramsay, was he? Jon would be less wrong if he was planning to return Arya to Ramsay. You know he was not. He was planning to take Arya away. Does it matter where they find Arya? Not really. Jon was willing to do anything to get his sister. He knew perfectly well that Mance should be executed. He knew perfectly well that sending anybody to take Arya from Ramsay is treason and he knew better than anybody that it's the equivalent of declaring war with House Bolton. Please consider this. Jon had a chance to consider before saying the words and taking his vows. He said his vows. He took the oath. He could have refused the position of LC. He didn't. Jon should respect the limitations and the boundaries of the organization that he joined. If a rule needed to be changed, then change it first, amend it, and make it formal before you take any action that exceeds the limits of that rule. In other words, change the rule and then act. That's not Jon's way, unfortunately. At least not when he's all emotional about his family. I think he knew that what he was about to do would never pass. He would have had a rebellion on his hands if he told the brothers he will let Mance walk and send him to steal his sister from her husband. But he should have tried. That is the proper way to do things. Going off like a he did and hellbent on getting his sister was completely wrong.
  7. Of course he could meet those terms. Better yet, if Jon was truly dedicated to protecting the realm and if he's responsible enough to put the needs of the many over the needs of Arya, he would surrender himself to Ramsay and admit that it was all his fault. Remember, it was all Jon's fault to begin with for getting himself involved in Bolton affairs when he had no right to interfere with their activities in the first place.
  8. Well, you know, bittersweet can happen in many different ways. It doesn't have to mean the death of the major characters. It could mean the death of somebody the major character loves, losing a castle/titles/land/gold, exile, imprisonment, etc. You name it. The possibilities are endless.
  9. Thank you
  10. Good to know. I'm on Team Daenerys too. Missandei: He was no dragon.
  11. It's not an easy question with Roose. You can argue that Robb was wrong to rebel and Roose was serving the king all this time. Roose was the man inside Robb's camp who was sabotaging the rebellion so it can end as soon as it can.
  12. It could mean that. It could also mean Rickard had already worked out a deal to make Brandon the Hand for Robert Baratheon.
  13. Littlefinger makes his money from his brothels. It is the world's oldest profession but the Freys have been collecting their toll unfailingly for hundreds of years. I still say the Freys are richer than Littlefinger. Walder could easily afford to give a fat daughter's weight in gold for a dowry and that is likely the biggest fortune the Boltons ever had. So I say the Freys are in the top five. Walda's dowry is actually very interesting. That amount of silver could have supported her for life in relative comfort. So getting her married off costed Walder more money than keeping her at The Twins. I think Walder really did want a good future for his daughter.
  14. Those fathers were up to something and it wasn't just finding a happy marriage for their children. Marriages were used to form alliances. It's clear to everyone what those marriages would do to upset the status of power in Westeros. There was no way Aerys could ever allow them to go through. I will even say that Rhaegar's initial goal was preventing these alliances from forming in the first place but the blockhead grew fond of Lyanna and failed to go through with it. What a dissapointment he must have been to dad who was counting on him to help the family.
  15. You can say that about most people. Lack of agency makes one less interesting.
