She is the closest to my own believe of justice and law.
The way she gives you security because she does not change the laws in Mereen retroactively is a very modern Law logic. And unlike Stannis, she is also willing to keep her standarts of Justice, and even take decisions that are against her own immediate short term goals.
And the way she improves and had Mereen as training ground makes me believe in her intelligence and the ability to adept and improve at an astonishing rate.
They would bring her freaking awesome Game of Throne intelligence.
And i would prefer LF without any troops to the Golden Company and Faegon at any moment.
People have to realise that the factors are not troops or inheritance.
The most important thing is skill at the Game. Given that Littlefingers value is highly circumstancial, but to Arianne, his skills, intelligence and behind the scenes knowledge is worth more than any other heir could offer.
You see any Riverlord answering Sansa's call for her Banners?
You see any Lord of the Vale answering Sansa's call for her Banners? Or do you see any Lord of the Vale answering if Sweetrobin would call his Banners right now?
You see 30k Men marching through the snow to the south right now?
I still think the Reach is more important than anything Sansa could bring to Aegons cause
Sansa has 0 claim to the vale. (so far it is a scheme in Lfs head)
Sansa is how far down in the Line to the Riverlands?
The Riverlands would back the Tullys first before they would move one foot to help Sansa in anything.
Only the north would send men if Sansa would call in her bannermen right now.
And the north is bleed out.
If you want to win the Throne, you need the Reach. Either conquer it with an Ironborn alliance, or Marry it with a Tyrell alliance
You guys have to analyse the major conflict line. And everyone seems to fail to put the conflict in words and compare it to westerosi standarts:
Is it more honorable to follow the orders of the King, or more honorable to protect the weak.
Easy answer: in westeros it is more honorable to follow the orders of the King.
Barristan did the honorable thing, but he has a redemption arc and is becoming a man who does the right thing.
And I am surprised that so many of supposedly educated readers fail to analyse that Barristan did change, that he does things he would have never done before.
Ah yes, my favourite discussion with Dr peppers and the lunatics....
I dont believe that Tyrions first wife will be of any importance. And I dont believe that Littlefinger needs any exwife of Tyrion to get an annulment for Sansa..... Lol, come on people. That guy is a kinslayer and a kingsslayer. Nobody could be denied be denied an annulment with such a husband.
I dont believe that the Iron bank works with the Faceless Men. Thats just retarded crap with 0 evidence, and would go against everything the FM stand for.
I dont believe that the FM hate dragons. They hate slavers. If Dragons kill slavers they should be happy.
I dont believe that the knights in Westeros are half as good swordfighters as some here want them to be. People seem to use their childhood adventure stories instead of informing themselfs about Escrima and Martial arts. None of those knights except Selmy, and maybe the Mountain would make top 50 fighter list.
I dont believe that the Will, or Jeyne Westerling will be of any importance. For crying out loud, there are 2 books left for the fight against the others.... There is no time to look into useless side stories.
