    GRRM: Some folk got it right.

    Eh, this just seems to me to be a coy statement that doesn't actually state anything. Nothing new here.

    Why was Bloodraven allowed to take Dark Sister to the Wall??

    One, FaB isn't exactly an objective unbiased history. Two, you didn't quote the part of my post that rebuffs your argument. The edge isn't going to make that much of a difference. Yes, Rhaegar knew what he was doing. He managed to wound the armored Robert even with an ordinary sword. The superior edge of a VS sword had nothing to do with Rhaegar finding a weak point in Robert's armor though. Speed is Rhaegar's weapon against an opponent like Robert who has a longer reach with who warhammer. A VS sword is lighter than an ordinary sword, yes. But as I said in the part of my post you didn't quote, considering Rhaegar was also fully armored. The weight of full plate mail, especially in the environment of Ruby Ford would have definitely slowed him down. It isn't like the movies where people are ducking and dodging in plate armor, that stuff hinders your movement. A lot. I don't see having a lighter sword speeding him up any. I don't see it enough to stop Robert from landing his killing blow.

    A VS sword doesn't automatically turn you into superman. The impact of the improved edge of a VS sword would be minimal in the chaotic environment of a battlefield, especially against a fully armored opponent like Robert. The main advantage Rhaegar would've had with Dark Sister is it would be lighter than a regular sword, and thus he might tire more slowly. Even so, Rhaegar was dressed in full armor as well, so the impact of a slightly lighter sword isn't going to make him that much faster.

    Penny's Gift

    Maybe. I tend to think the whole Penny arc is superfluous. Perhaps if she manages to get Tyrion giving a damn about the world again it'll be worth it.

    Penny's Gift

    She's one who appreciates the mundane things. She'd have no reason to want to open herself up to one of his mocking japes over something that may have meant a great deal to her but didn't mean much in the grand scheme of things.

    Penny's Gift

    Penny would think a fancy new saddle for her pig is grand.

    Aegon's story is fake news and propaganda

    Still using this message board to promote your YouTube channel I see.

    Do arranged marriages make houses closer?

    In theory it seals two houses together, in practice a house is going to do what is in their interest even if their grandchild, niece or cousin happens to be a member of an opponents house.

    How should Robb have gotten his sisters back?

    Robb had Jaime, he was a threat and he proved he could win. Instead of declaring himself king he was in a perfect position to negotiate with Tywin for peace on his terms given the threat of Stannis and Renly.

    There must Always be a Stark at Winterfell

    It could be something as simple as keeping a hold of House Stark's seat of power.

    Why do we not hear of Targyen parents marrying their offspring?

    Guess you have to draw the line somewhere.

    Viserys does not go east

    Had Viserys stayed in Pentos, he probably would've ended up with the Golden Company in (f)Aegon's place. Unlike Aegon, there's no question about the legitimacy of his birth or claim. Illyrio was always planning a Targaryen restoration with Aegon, but once Viserys and Dany came into his hands, they became more important pieces. Once Viserys got himself killed and Dany went off to Mereen never to be seen again, he brought out Aegon again.

    What is your theory on The Others?

    Well there is Melisandre's vision that the 3ER and Bran are the Greath Others champions. So seems to be people are being deceived across the board be it by others or themselves. Maybe there's a big revelation coming that will twist everything but right now the zombie apocalypse that's coming seems rather... two dimensional, so it saddens me that it's going to take over the story inevitably.

    What is your theory on The Others?

    Well I'd hope Martin is more clever than to have some global warming parallel be the driving force of his incessantly evil villains. I read to escape the crap in this world mostly. I'd also really hope they're more complicated than mindless monsters that are just awakened and attack randomly Egyptian mummy style. But can't discount that either. Honestly, given the Long Night supposedly happened well before there were Targaryens in Westeros, I'm not sure what relevance Rhaegar and Lyanna having a kid would have to them. But why not blame this on them too? But I'm more convinced they're just mindless dicks. No way of spinning laughing as you slaughter a helpless person.

    So, what's your head canon?
