  1. The Starks are moving away from the path of honor and civility. Rickon hanging out with Osha guarantees he will be more wiildling than civilized. Jon is more wildling than a son of a nobleman. Arya is cold-blooded murderer. Bran is learning to live with the children of the forest. Rickon was already growing wild before they left Winterfell.
  2. Many men would do as Jon did and let the world die for a beloved sister. However those men should never, ever be in a position of power or command. Military life is not for people like that. They are not cut out for leadership. Jon is not cut out for command. Bowen did the right thing to stop him from leading the wildlings to Winterfell which would have been an act of atrocity.
  3. The thing is, the Daynes like Ned. He must have done something in service to them. I guess bringing back their house sword is that good thing. I suspect there was more to it than that. Say the baby was Ashara's with Brandon. Ned promised to keep his mouth shut and claim the baby was his and Wylla. That lets Ashara off the hook and saved her honor. I prefer this theory. Ned and a loyal maid named Wylla saved Ashara and the Dayne family from a public embarassment.
  4. Hoster Tully didn't join the rebels for principles. He joined because he needed to get rid of a daughter that lost her social value and was never going to have a chance to marry into another high ranking family. Hoster Tully was a Grade A snob. He thought his soiled daughter too good to marry less than a son from a High House. Jon Arryn desperately needed his help and he took advantage and required Jon Arryn to marry Lysa. Lysa lost her cherry to Petyr and Hoster forced her to have an abortion.
  5. Because she's not logical. Why wait so long to make an attempt on the valonqar' life until Stannis attacked the city? Why not make an accident for the imp while he was young and easier to kill? Plot hole. Logic hole in Cersei's reasoning. Cersei felt secure enough to ignore the prophecy. Take your pick.
  6. Targaryen women actually had power and played prominently in the affairs of the realm. Visenya and Rhaenys were active in the governing. The women had important roles unlike the other women of the times. Allyssanne was an equal partner with her husband in the governing. They are studied as well as the men by historians and not one of them has been confirmed crazy.
  7. The boys were close in age to Bran and Rickon. Theon is not old enough to have boys of that age.
  8. Homosexuality was blamed for the spread of AIDS in the early eighties. Incest itself has no consequence unless you plan to have children and then when you do the chances of having problems is still low.
  9. 1. Tar was used as a wood preservative. It needed to penetrate the wood to provide long term rot resistance. I will guess that it is effective if you soak the head long enough. But then they all will look the same. Oh well. 2. Your guess is as good or as bad as mine. I read on reddit a theory. Robb's head is now worn by Robert Strong. Robert Strong has Robb's head on his shoulders. He's made up of Gregor and Robb put together. 3. Frozen at the wall. The ground is hard when frozen. Digging will be a problem. Crow food. 4. He doesn't much talk about his work. I accept his silence to mean he's found job satisfaction. 5. I think so. It will be a mercy. A little Payne is better than the agonies of roasting.
  10. His prayers were answered in the most unlikely of ways. A girl avenged his honor, if there is even such a thing. The story goes he went to pray to the gods to him the strenght to beat the little boys who beat him up. Which is embarrassing if you think about it. Did Lyanna pray with him is the question I'm most interested in? The blood sacrifice could be anything. A deer. A lost child they found wandering in the woods. Just kidding on that last one. So yeah it could be anything that can bleed.
  11. You know, Lyanna is a poor fit for this lovely party. She's not that attractive and she would show up smelling like a wet wolf. Anyone would mistake her for the serving girl. Sansa would fit in nicely. Ashara grew up in Dorne where expressions of sexuality are more acceptable.
  12. Yes. They are career soldiers and until sold they do not have a specific occupation.
  13. Maester Aemon, Septon Barth, Aenar, Tyrion, Jorah, Stannis, Quaithe, Petyr Baelish, Lady Ollena, Varys, and Green Grace.
  14. Thank you for posting this. Yours is the best work I've read on this subject. The possibility of a Targaryen going mad has been greatly exaggerated both within the POVs and on the fan discussions. Three hundred years of recorded family history and not one confirmed female going mad. All the loonies were men.
  15. Where they doing fine? Men go out into the snows under the pretense of taking a piss break and commit suicide during the winters because of food supply shortages. House Stark was practicing ritualistic human sacrifice in their castle garden. Noble lords were raping the brides of their common folk at will. The Targaryens put a stop to the lord's right to the first night and did what they could to discourage it. Human sacrifice stopped. The Targaryens were the only ones who could dominate the Ironborn. While the ironborn's mischief wasn't completely contained, the Targaryens at least kept the ironborn from dominating the people on the main land. The targs put the ironborn on the lowest rung of the social and economic ladder. The dragons cut off one of the kraken's testicles and bruised the one remaining item.
