He might always be known as the Kingslayer but any other deed he does could certainly alter the overall perception the realm has of him. "Redmption" has nothing to do with it, he doesn't need to turn into some pure soul, simply not reviled any longer by the people.
Then again he could also do something for the good of the realm and not get any kudos for it, people are often ungrateful litte twats after all.
Lots more bodies of peasants, lords and named characters and destoryed infrastructure with haunted survivors picking up the pieces to rebuild. With King/Queen PUTNAMEHERE, (not who everyone wants but who managed to survive) doing best to lead Westeros into the future
The characters themselves are the best part of the series to me, they are truly fascinating. It is all a great read though, the politics, history and customs of the lands being covered, all of it is amazingly well thought out.
He may not want to be compared to Tolkien as they do write different stuff but I do prefer GRRM and his work to Tolkien, the story is more interesting and the lack of black and white thinking makes the books have much more staying power with me.
No one wants Dany or Jon to actually get the Iron Throne but who else will get it then? Aegon is probably a pretender and I highly doubt Tommen or Myrcella will be keeping it. Who does that leave barring a random strongman? An unnamed Baratheon cousin or something?
My personal worry is about Jaime or Brienne possibly dying without accomplishing anything of note. Would be incredibly frustrating to me.
I'm glad all of The Dark Tower was released before I started reading and only had to wait for the last release of the sub-par final books of Wheel of Time series. Only want to be waiting impatiently for one series, this one namely. If I added more I'm not sure I could tolerate the frustration.
Sorry, Jaime is my favorite character but whether in modern honor or Westori honor he is hardly someone you point to when you think of an honorable person. Of course I wouldn't hold Robb up as my standard of honorable behavior either so I find both sides of this to be moot.
