  1. Let's speculate wildly about Lady Dustin

    Lady Dustin is useing Roose to further her own ambitions, she knows more about Roose Bolton then maybe any other character in the books perhaps she even knows the reasoning behind Rooses leachings. I think she realises hes a monster as his son Ramsey is and when the time is right will stab Roose in the back probably quite litterally.
  2. Why did Roose never remarried?

    Lady Dustin secretly hates Roose as well.......
  3. Second strongest houses in each kingdom?

    IMO some houses like Manderly and Hightower could even being stronger then there liege lords
  4. From what we know house Manderly was once a very powerful house in the Reach apparently powerful enough that house Gardner felt threatened of there growing influence, with a gentle nudge from the Peakes of course. My questions are........ 1) How much time could the Manderlys possibly have to pack up all there wealth and head north before the Gardner army had them trapped in there castle of Dunstonbury? 2) Where did the Manderlys keep there fleet they used to head North in? you wouldnt think the Manderlys would have a huge fleet since it wouldnt be needed from Dunstonbury as its on a river not an ocean coast correct? 3) How was the arrangement with house Stark reached its not like the Manderlys just sailed upon the White Knife and were welcomed with open arms out of the blue, the Manderlys would have to have a great deal of time to send ravens or riders to the North to ask there permission then pack all your wealth and men at arms up on ships and sail north.
  5. I mean come on these are the Iron Born all they do litterally is steal, rape and reave then repeat. If I was king Gardener and the IB have taken the Riverlands I would be pretty causious of the situation and keep a very close eye on there movements, as soon as I hear of Harrenhals construction I would call ALL my banners and move in for the kill. Think about it why on this earth would you allow your enemy to build the biggest stronghold the world has ever seen (litterally) and your kingdom boarders with them are you INSANE or idiotic?. If Aegon didnt conquer Westeros when he did you would see the IB reaving all across the Reach and Westerlands which has to be expected when you think of the Nature of the IB, the Riverlands wernt enough for them they would always want more. If im king Gardener I would immediately call ALL banners meet with the Lannisters and ask they call ALL there banners and remove the IB scum for good before they have a stronghold that could turn the tide of war heavily in the IB favor. The Lannisters would be easy to convince hell some Riverland lords would help you too if it ment the IB gone for good.
  6. Questions about Manderlys move to the North

    Another question I was wondering is what gave king Gardener the right to attack the Manderlys ? You cant just attack your bannerman because they are growing to strong and rich that doesnt make sense to me. Imagine the Targs attacking house Valaryeon because they were the richest house in Westeros and on paper superior to the Targs.......... There has to be more to the story that we the reader are not aware of.
  7. I was thinking to my self how could Danny get the Stormlands on board and it occured to me if Danny had the Martells on her side and Tommon died before his sister wouldnt Trystane with Mrycella as his wife be the new lawful heir of SE? Also was kinda woundering what rights Edric Storm has by being known as Roberts bastard.
  8. Most Courageous Act in ASOIAF

    Ser Waymar Royce easily takes the cake for both couragous act and stupid act all in one deed, the Royces seem to be one of the most honorable houses in Westeros. I always wished Sansa would tell Yohn Royce the truth about who she is he would have protected her with every fibre of his being, obviously Sansa chose the smart decision because she doesnt truly know Youn Royce but she does know her father held him in High esteem.
  9. Weird quote about the Targaryens from Tyrion ADWD

    The Targaryans were bottom of the barrell dragons riders meaning they only had a small amount of dragons perhaps they thought it to risky to risk said small batch of dragons untill they had a solid hold on Dragonstone and the nobility of Blackwater bay. Or perhaps they had no dragons eggs and waiting untill the dragons they currently have produced more which could take a while?.
  10. Stannis on Dragonstone

    I always wondered did Robert not realize Stannis took the Royal fleet with him back to Dragonstone? Also wouldnt Stannis have to ask Robert to leave the captial he is on the small council after all his place is at court.
  11. The craziest ideas you conceived...

    That GRRM will finish his books before WW3 ends planet earth.......
  12. We know the Tyrells have ambitions for seeing there blood on the IT, doesnt it make more sense to join Robert on the terms of him marrying a Tyrell? With the Tyrells backing the rebels it would be a for sure win and Tywin would have joined the rebels far sooner as well. The Tyrells could have requested two spots on the small council as well for Reachmen, Robert would agree obviously. By supporting Aerys they put themselves at risk of losing the war which they did anyways also there was no guarentee Robert would be so forgiving as well. The Tyrells gambled heavy supporting Aerys with little to no benefit at all. Imagine Robert granted the Hightowers the position of great lord over the Tyrells, do the Tyrells continue the war against the North, Riverlands, Vale, Stormlands, Westernlands?? I think not it would be suicide afterall and the Reach lords would be fractured some suppprting Hightowers some supporting Tyrells. Most would be team hightower since they are of better blood not up jumped stewards like the Tyrells.
  13. Wouldnt the Tyrells have gained more supporting Robert?

    This....... You arnt gonna put the son (viserys) or grandson (Aegon) on the throne and pray he doesnt take revenge when there older is a risk I wouldnt want to make to say the least. Especially Viserys who grew up with his father and loves him. Usually when a dynasty is overthrown they take the old kings daughter and marry her to the the new king which you could either have Robert marry Aerys wife I forget her name but she is still a Targ or wait a long ass time for Daenarys to come of age, they would wait though blood is everything.
  14. Most cowardly deed in ASOIAF.

    Telling Tywin Lannister he is a coward and was busy hiding under Casterly Rock while Robert was busy fighting and winning a war was pretty brave even Robert didnt have the balls to say such a thing even if he thought it.
  15. Most cowardly deed in ASOIAF.

    For me it was Tywin Lannister ordering the death of Rhegars innocent children and Elia Martell, some argue that Gregor did this on his own but obviously this isnt the case Gregor is big and stupid but not insane he wouldnt just kill the prince and princess without orders from Tywin explicitly.
  16. Just read the most confusing chapter....

    The two Yronwoods that were with Quentyn were as loyal as they come one of them being his best friend in fact.
  17. Lord Greatjon Umber and his fate in "The Winds Of Winter".

    Agreed the great Jon is a huge man but 2 years in a dungeon will turn the strongest of men frail and weak unfortunately.
  18. I was thinking more immediate to the story line like if Tommon kicked the bucket and Mrycella became queen we know as the reader that Mrycella will soon be joining her brothers in the grave but Trystane was still legally married to her before her death by laws of mariage is SE his since there is no heir for SE in the Iron Thrones opinion anyways. Could the Iron Throne deny the Martells the seat? Especially in such crucial times of needing them as an ally. Lady Dustin managed to keep Barrow town even though she was only married to lord Dustin for a short time.
  19. The defense of the North

    Noone will be able to turn Sansa against her family again, she is learning from past mistakes and she sees LF for what he is POISON. Also she seemed happy when Jon was named KITN untill she locked eyes with LF.
  20. If Ramsay dies.....

    Bastards do have a claim unfortunately on the show there is no Edric Storm or Mya Stone which were Roberts only CONFIRMED bastards. Noone knows Gendry even exists so he def wont be receiving Storms End.
  21. Wouldnt the Tyrells have gained more supporting Robert?

    The Tyrells hold on HG didnt depend on the Targaryans at all as proven when Robert Ursurperd the throne and didnt remove them even though they were his enemies, also if the Tyrells joined Robert who if they won would be king how would there hold on HG be weaker if anything it would be stronger since the new dynasty is in debt to the Tyrells. Like I said if Robert decided to make the Hightowers the new Lord protector of the Reach he could easily remove the Tyrells from HG and install someone with a better claim. The hightowers stayed neutral in the rebellion so Robert rewarding them isnt out of place and the Hightowers are the strongest house in the Reach anyways id put them even with Tyrells.
  22. Rhaegar was WAY better than Robert

    So what? Just because other characters broke there bethroal it makes it ok ? She was bethrothed to the lord of SE not some Ser nobody she should have did her duty also Rhegar was married which makes things 10x worse I feel like Lyanna had no honour to speak of, Rickard should of had her fostered in the Vale to.
  23. Rhaegar was WAY better than Robert

    So many of you are saying o Robert never truly loved Lyanna, have you ever heard of love at first site? I believe this was the case here. Also Rhegar might have been the better option for Lyanna but she was bethrothed to Robert and should have did her duty to her father and her house running away with a married man wasnt a good choice and cost Lyanna the life of her father and over protective older brother. Robert was a GOOD man prior to the rebellion and there is absolutly no proof Robert would have cheated on Lyanna if they did get married, also Ned was like a brother to Bob I cant see him running around with every whore in KL since Ned would obviously here about it. Robert was a man that every lord who followed him loved and admired I believe when Lyanna died it took the better part of him with her and in his sorrow he turned to drinking and whoring.
  24. Why do the Arryns live in the Eyrie?

    The Eyrie is an awesome castle probably the best answer lol. It keeps you cool in the summer is made from the finest marble money can buy and of course for historical purposes the kings of the Vale belong at the Eyrie. Who wants to stay at the gates of the moon year round its more of a military base then a home.
  25. What Would Tywin Have Done With Arya?

    She would be traded for Jamie and even though its a stupid trade Robb would do it because he is family oriented, Robb could also ask for a few more hostages a few minor lords and such for jamie lannister Tywin wouldnt refuse.
