  1. Sure. I was only commenting that bloodshed is the norm. That's how they cast their votes.
  2. The Others seem to have a culture. They have armor and weapons. They have humor. Maybe they have a culture. That culture could relegate their females to non-combat roles. We know they have females. The Night's Queen. If the Others we are seeing is their equivalent of a military force they would consists mainly of males. If they are Hive-Minded as some theorists believe them to be, maybe there can only be one queen per hive. One of the queens took an interest in the 13th lord commander, a Stark. Why? Perhaps his blood was compatible with theirs. Are we then sure that all of their children are dead? Could the Starks be descended from one of their half ice children? Did they sacrifice all of their children to their gods? Could be this is the reason why the Starks sacrificed to the trees. It is a family tradition that they must continue, to sacrifice a son to the trees on some predetermined interval. Each generation? Each turn of the season?
  3. Castles and much less kingdoms do not pass without bloodshed. Dany has as much right to take back Westeros as the Starks have the right to take back Winterfell. Many Starks fans have no problem with the Starks calling for a lot of bloodshed to take back Winterfell. Daenerys has the same rights to take back her throne.
  4. The show's version of the origin of the Others The books have yet to tell use where they came from. But we have two clues. The Others are powerful skin changers. They can control the flesh of the dead. Powerful stuff. Perhaps the ability came from them originally and it passed on to the First Men. Parallels the Valyrian resistance to heat coming from their dragons. They prized Craster's baby boys. There is clearly something unique about Craster. They are "ice" so it could mean Craster is a Stark. Why only boys? Because it serves to keep men weak when they have to give up their future warriors? Because we are only seeing a small part of their population and what we are seeing is the equivalent of their Night Watch. Their Day Watch. Other males who have sworn their lives to protect their realm from an outside threat.
  5. So why did he need to be a warrior? Skill at arms is not how you beat the supernatural Others. We have noting in the text to suggests that Rhaegar started collecting obsidian. I think what he read predicted the coming rebellion. He knew rebellion was coming and realized he would have to lead the royal forces into battle against human enemies if it can't be stopped. Against human foes, not the kind that you need obsidian for. The kind you can kill with steel. His behavior at the tournament supports this. Lyanna was the linchpin of the conspiracy against his house and he acted to seduce her away from Robert. Something happened at the tourney and he came to respect her. He chose at that moment to leave her out of his political game. But Lyanna was already smitten.
  6. The Goodbrooks stayed loyal to their king after Tully called his banners to join Robert and Jon Arryn. Tully destroyed the Goodbrooks' village to punish them for remaining loyal to their king. I have to clap my hands for Petyr Baelish because he gave back to the Tullys what they deserved.
  7. There were no humans on Westeros until the arrival of the First Men. The species stayed away from each other. They had their own corner of the the world, so to speak. Perhaps that is the final solution. Humans would leave Westeros and let the children tend to their trees as much as they want.
  8. A day might come when Bran chooses not to give it back. Self-pity and addiction could drive Bran to the dark side.
  9. Team Name: Stannis Team: Stannis, Davos, Mellisandre, Selys, Shireen, Tycho Nestoris. (List any other person that I could have forgotten to include). Team Objective: Time: Analyze the team during the time period before Stannis leaves the wall. This is the time right after Stannis crushed the wildlings. S: He has knights and horses. Seen by some as the king. Served by a red priestess who has some magic tricks. W: Winter is coming and he has little in the way of supplies and food. Non-cooperative ally in the NW. Unfamiliar with the north. O: He sent his advisor to win over allies to his cause. T: Unfamiliar with the battle grounds. He's not from the north. Bad weather conditions. Long march to Winterfell. Roose knows the north better. Roose hides behind tall stone walls.
  10. do the "others" pose a threat to anyone besides westeros? Ah that is a very good question. Are they a threat at all? Was our author remembering the Vietnam War when he wrote the story? That was one of the justifications for sending troops to a foreign land was stop the spread of an opposing ideology. Good question. Mel, Jon, the NW, the old scrolls from Asshai all call for military action against the threat. Are they right or misunderstanding the situation?
  11. Many people hate the Lannisters for what they did to the Reynes and the Tarbecks. But you know Hoster Tully did almost as bad with the Goodbrooks when that family refused to follow his rebellion.
  12. On the topic of House Lannister, allow me to say this. Yeah, the realm might prosper but it will happen at the expense of justice. Tywin would be a skilled tyrant, but a tyrant nonetheless. He may spend the first years of a Lannister reign Castamering some of the dissenters. After that there will be no more dissentment. Only bottled up resentment. He could pay off the debts to the foreign banks. He could quell rebellions. He could restore order. But justice would be hard to come by. Tywin is too much focused on the glory of house Lannister to be an unbiased ruler of seven kingdoms. He is best serving the ruler instead of ruling.
  13. Smart answer. I will have to accept and agree. Regional bias gets in the way of unity. House Targaryen. Second choice is Velaryon if they still had the wealth and power during the time of the Sea Snake. While the Sea Snake himself would not make for a good ruler because he is like Ricard with his mind on outside matters. Corlys would be a rather neglectful ruler. But there are others in his house who could make fine monarchs of the land.
  14. It tells me there's something weird going on at the Nightfort. The men on the tree roots haunt the minds of those who live in that place.
  15. The most ethical is without question the liberation of the slaves by Dany. Slavery has to stop and she took on the job even though it gives her back nothing in return. The most unethical is the slave trade. I trust there is no need to explain why.
