  1. Spoilers from season 5 and upto The Winds of Winter (book) Who do we think the guy next to Stannis who says “there’s not going to be a siege” is. I know that he isn’t intended to be anyone from the books. But I would like to theorise that he is either Richards Horpe as this guy is clearly second in command of the the march to Winterfell much like Horpe in the books. Also I find that when he sets up the troops outside Winterfell it’s very similar to Horpe ordering the troops to ice fish at the crofter’s Village. Candidate number 2 is hand of the Queen. Axell Florent. Assuming that the majority of the men remaining at Stannis’ side are florent men the it would make sense that he was second in command. It will also explain while he looks so distraught at Shireen and Selyse deaths because he was losing his sister and his niece. what do you think of these Ideas and who would you like that guy to be or theorise him to be.
  2. That’s the point I’m making. Renly sealed his fate when he rebelled against Stannis and ignored the line of success. Just as Visaerys sealed his fate with the threat. Yet Stannis is constantly atrackec for being a kinslayer
  3. Spoilers ahead up to Season 6 It is interesting how people can forget Dany’s Sins but fail to forgive Stannis for his. Example 1- They are both Kinslayers Stannis is infamous for his assasssination of Renly. Yet people seem to forget that Dany estential killed her brother. Yes many do claim that this was Drogo and yes I most certainly agree but Dany didn’t even try to stop it despite her brother’s pleas, so she is at least accountable in some shape or form. Some may claim that Danny had no choice because Visaerys broke the law by carrying his weapon in the city. This is the same circumstance for Stannis. Evenly was breaking the law of succession and estentially destroying any form of a peace in Westeros. Then it comes down to Shireen. Yes this is dreadful and I can’t deny it but the intentions were good. Stannis’ intentions was to sacrifice Shireen so that he could become Assor Ahai and save the world. In my book any man who would be willing to kill their child to save the rest of the world deserves to be king. Example 2 - Justice Stannis burns people and so does Dany so this is a fun one to compare. The first proper example we have of Stannis burning someone is the burning of his brother by law. Now the show doesn’t explain this but in the books Stannis’ BIL went behind Stannis’ back in the attempt to make peace with the Lannisters. This is treason and lawfully Stannis executes him. Up at the wall Stannis executes Mande Rayder after offering him mercy. MR refused and as an enemy Stannis had a right to Kill him. Dany on the other hand crucified the masters of Mareen and burns a couple alive (potential murdering some innocent masters). She fails to give Justice or mercy and yet this flaw is over looked. This isn’t a post to admire Stannis or to hate Dany. I like both characters and find them foils of each other. I just don’t like the hypocrisy when looking at these characters but hey everyone’s got their favourites. I would like to hear about other people’s view on the matter.
