  1. Sooner or later the Free Cities would make their apperance. Perhaps the Bravoosi Iron Bank would see the financial profit from turning an expedition West against seven unstable, seperated fragile kingdoms & would make deals with mercenary groups to conquer lands. Tyrosh, Lys, Myr & even Volantis would have much to earn from tearing pieces of Westeros apart. The Stormlands, our fresh Crownlands would be in much danger. The two kingdoms who most likely would remain intact from invaders would have been the Vale of the Arryn & Dorne. Also we shouldnt exclude the possibility that one or two of those seven kingdoms could grow stronger & absord regions to their dominion so Westeros could become a 2 or 3 kingdoms business.
  2. It's a too simplified motive for someone like George.
  3. Agree completely with your stance about Jon Snow, I used to find him more likable as a broken, confused teenager back on Book #1, as he grow up he's been treated with much privileged writing (leader of Wall's resistance against Wildlings, very young Lord Commander, advices Stannis on warfare issues, expected to come back in life). I disagree on his essentiality though. The writers make the characters essentials. Martin could chose an other horse instead of Lord Snow anytime of the day. Jaime would make a good option. Even Cersei could do something gallant towards the end. There're so many ways a write can take.
  4. Ιn any case this girl is on fire. I believe the death scene will involve Tyrion, I always imagined she will die with Tyrion by her side holding her hand, the brother she always despised. Cersei is a complex, very grey, glorious character you meet once in a lifetime in fantasy literature & she deserves a death equal to this glory.
  5. I always believed Cersei will have a very glorious death. Strangling feels obvious. He used the same plot with Shae.
  6. It's obvious that Cersei wont be able to rule on her name in KL, allthough on Westerlands she's the de facto heir. That said, offstage during the short period of her antiregency to Tommen she was the person behind all the decisions of the crown, acting more like a Queen than a Queen Regent. The SC was a puppet to her own will. Even is she cant legally considered a queen, in terms of power, authority & circumstances she was the second queen of Westeros after Rhaenyra. Maesters wont ever write Cersei as one, but the influence she had to the crown "makes" her one.
  7. The Great Council of 101 AC summoned by King Jaehaerys I made sure that the Iron Throne could not pass to a woman, or to a male descendant of a female lady, all though it's decisions werent included in the Westerosi legal system by royal decrees, otherwise this would block Viserys from appointing Rhaenyra as his succesor. Does Cersei's antiregency to Tommen during Feast -until she gets imprisoned by Faith Militant- contradict it's conclusions? The regency of Aegon III was male dominated but in the case of little Tommen Cersei rules on her name without any male interference such as Kevan, Mace or Jaime. The small council was just an illusion to the eyes of the kingdom, Cersei was taking all the decisions herself. Most common folks never bothered to call her "Queen Regent", "Queen Mother" etc, they always call her the "Queen" (which sometimes comes with the word "cunt"). Can Cersei be considered the second queen Westeros witnessed after the Half-Year Queen Rhaenyra?
  8. I wish you are right sista. Lord Snow remaining dead would be very nice plot surprize. BUT as George said in a recent interview Beric is dead even if he's resurected, a fire wight, so I bet it wont be any different for Jonie.
  9. In this case the "Chosen One" becomes less cliche & more of a cooperation work. That would be more "realistic". Even in that case though Jon still remains the most privileged out of the three protagonists. The only actual obstacle he has faced during his adult life (aside the emo Catelyn drama) is his murder by the brothers of the NW, but it's irrelevant since a ressurection is almost certain & the reasons behind this plot device will benefit the character in the future.
  10. Gladly the famous theory of the three headed dragon requires three persons. I hope GRRM will break the cliches of fantasy literature & instead of choosing a male protagonist he will make Daenerys the savior of the world. Tyrion has more POV's, "book time" from both in any case. Plus Jaime seems like a potential AA.
  11. The choice to make some characters utterly superior than the rest feels to unrealistic for a world that's been based too much on raw honesty & real life history. Jon Snow has been presented as the absolute protagonist (along with Tyrion & Dany, even if she has less POV's). The "Chosen One" manichaeistic theory makes him somehow more valuable, worthy as an individual than Stannis, Cersei, Jaime etc for higher unexplained reasons. The plot would have been okay on a Tolkien-like story but not on GRRM's narrative about chopped Riverlanders laying on the Kingsroad & with Boltons flaying captives. The Mesiah story of Jon Snow feels too much of a boring cliche fan service.
