    The Carter Presidency And The Game Of Thrones

    Rickard Stark belongs on that list. He can't even manage his own children. His daughter ran off with a married man and caused embarrassment to the family. Brandon commits treason when he threatened to kill the Targaryens. Stark family issues keep dragging the north to war.

    Does Asoiaf Have a True Protagonist? *SPOILERS*

    Right, and I think they will be just as deeply developed as the other main characters. We will know clearly their motivations for doing what they did. The OP used Tyrion as an example. It's built up hate and loathing. His perceived sense of having been mistreated all his life. Yet he is blind to the fact that he was living on his father's allowance up until he got accused of murdering Joffrey. Imagine a mature man living off his father and then killing that man.

    Does Asoiaf Have a True Protagonist? *SPOILERS*

    Daenerys Targaryen is the true protagonists of the story. So yeah, there is a true protagonist.
  4. The Lannisters under Tywin gave them Riverun. I think they can be forgiven for letting that one slide. War is not good for business. And Walder is a good businessman.

    Summer vs. Jaime Lannister

    He wouldn't be a Stark if he did this. The north remembers is about revenge. Bran will do what he can to get his revenge on Jaime even if he has to betray Brynden to do it.
  6. They were forced to choose. They never asked for war. The Starks and the Lannisters brought the war to their doorstep. And they were smart enough to get off the Starks' sinking ship. They made up for the mistake by doing King joffrey a solid and ridding him of a pesky rebel.

    Predicting the Future of Characters

    Massey will find it hard to get sell swords. Most are already employed by the slave masters. He'll take the gold and bargain his way back into the Lannister camp. He will become a lord and given lands and a castle of his own. Asha escapes and finds a fleet of her own. She fights Uncle Euron in a naval battle and wins. Aurane Waters will throw his support and kneel before the Mother of Dragons. In exchange, he gets legitimized and given his own lands. Landel is killed by Robert Strong. High Sparrow is killed by Robert Strong. Edric Storm will inherit Storm's End after he bends the knee to the Mother of Dragons. Lothar Frey will become Walder's heir after his brothers are killed by the Brotherhood. He's a smart man. He will find the Brotherhood and kill Lady Stoneheart. Black Walder will die but not before he kills Arya Stark.
  8. None of them. The Starks were rebels. House Frey was ordered to stop them.

    Will Jon be Dany's heir

    We are not going to agree on much of anything. That much is true. I suspect what I want to happen and what you want to happen, who I want to succeed and who you want to succeed, are light years apart.

    Will Jon be Dany's heir

    There is a recent topic about this. Bran is not going to forgive Jaime. It would be a dull story if he did. This is not the story of the Starks letting bygones be bygones. Catelyn slit the throat of a harmless simpleton. Arya killed an innocent old man who had nothing whatsoever to do with the red wedding. She has a kill list for Pete's sake. Jon killed Slynt the moment he got the chance. Bran is not going to be different.

    Sansa-Harrold Hardying

    I'm rooting for this plan to fail. But it can work. Baelish has something he can use for leverage. Food.

    Lord Walder Bolton

    I don't really care much what happens to the north and the Starks as long as they don't get themselves involved in anything below Moat Cailin. They can become kings of north again and it would be fine with me as long as they stay in the north and mind their own business. Don't be so sure. It is unlikely but more interesting than the Starks getting their castle back.

    Summer vs. Jaime Lannister

    Good stuff. I want to see these two fight. I don't like these families but Bran is better than Jaime. I hope he kills Jaime but loses Summer.

    Reznak mo Reznak

    I believe Skahaz Mo Kandaq is loyal but Reznak is not. The Shavepate and his clan are all in with Dany. Reznak, otoh, is still tied to the slavers.

    Why did Jorah push Dany to go to Asshai?

    It's on the very edge of civilization where the Dothraki might not trouble to find them. It's also a place where somebody will pay top gold for the dragon eggs. Magic users who are into dragon lore will surely want those eggs and Asshai has plenty of riches.
