    The most interesting Targaryen king to read about

    Egg had the right idea but he didn't have the tools to get it done. As we have seen time and again, it is the High Lords who are the problem. The HL and the other intermediaries between the monarch and the people. The intermediaries want to keep their power and do their own thing. Egg had his failings with his children. He let the heart win over the brain. It caused issues to be sure but nothing too significant. It was his desire to help the people that drove him to try to bring back the dragons. He almost ended the dynasty with his stunt. His great-grandaughter, our Queen Daenerys, will be better prepared to carry out his legacy of helping people, albeit in the East. Westeros will be experiencing the Ice Age for a long time. Things like government will cease to exists in Westeros until the season changes back to spring and summer.

    Jon Snow and the blood of the First Men

    The north is an isolated area where distances between families is large. The nobility policy of marrying only nobility further limit the gene pool. So Jon Snow will have been produced from a limited gene pool: First Men and White Walker DNA is my guess.

    George Martin and idea of kingship

    A good story has great supporting characters. There is not a single set of curriculum to make a person fit for ruling. Robb had all the education and yet he was pitiful at ruling. Samwell and his friends elected Jon Snow and he ended the second worst commander after the NK. Robert caved in Rhaegar's chest because he thought he could run the kingdom better than Aerys and his family couldn't keep it together for more than 15 years. Young Grif and Daenerys do not represent opposing ideals. The share courage and strong wills. Daenerys is smarter than Young Grif. Young Grif has shown that he doesn't care to help the suffering slaves. He could have gone to Meereen but chose to move on to his conquest. Jon Snow is far from ideal and would actually be less able than YG and Daenerys. Daenerys is the best qualified to rule. She puts aside her distaste for the Ghiscari because she knows she needs their cooperation in order to make it work. And it started working at Meereen for the most part. The harpy is the extreme arm of the slaving families but they don't represent the average Meereenese who have accepted the end of the slave trade. Do away with the harpy and progress will continue.

    An Evil Name

    I could see Jon going further down that hill. It could bring interest to his part in the story.
  5. I'm one of them. I never cared for the show and cancelled my subscription. I don't think the two are related storywise. I never cared for the Starks since my reading of the books. It has nothing to do with the show.

    An Evil Name

    The white walkers will raise Jon from the dead. He will have remnants of his human self because part of him will have avoided the degradation that would normally happen after death because of his link with ghost. He won't come back human. Not wholly. He will come back a wight with an intact mind. Imagine an angry, unkillable, undead Jon coming back for the Boltons. His will to take his sister from the Boltons will survive death. He becomes a walking wight set on a mission to attack the Boltons and the Nights Watch. Jon and Arya are being prepared to become the alphas of two large wolf packs. Jon's warg skills will remain intact with his body.
  7. Plus the Starks do not have enough funds to hire skilled agents to do this type of job.

    Gender relations in Westeros

    That is the Andal culture. Valyrian culture is a lot different. Targaryen women are warriors. A Valyrian woman who can ride a dragon is higher up their rankings than a male who cannot.

    An Evil Name

    Jon is another baby resulting from a wildling man taking a winterfell maiden to bed. Mance Rayder got Lyanna with child.

    What if elia and children survive

    The difference will be little to none. Their titles would be taken away for sure. They will live as prisoners at best. Robert will still have the throne.
  12. He had no reason to. Catelyn is what, pushing 35 now. She could choose to stay unmarried.

    Strangest Possible Ending

    I think you're seeing that on the show. It's pretty damn awful. Jon should never have come back from death.

    Boltons vs Manderlys'

    I hope the Boltons. That cannibal needs to lose and die.

    Best/Worst POV Storylines in Each Book

    A Game of Thrones Best POV has to go to Daenerys Targaryen. Her wedding to Drogo, getting the silver horse to jump over the flames, waking the dragons from stones. Awesome. Worst POV is Sansa Stark's. A Clash of Kings Best POV award again goes to Daenerys Targaryen. Leading her khalasar with courage, house of the undying, Arstan and Belwas. Worst POV is Arya. Too much wandering around and I'm not interested in Arya. A Storm of Swords Best POV award goes to Daenerys Targaryen. The strategy she used on Kraznys, Selmy's reveal. Worst POV goes to Jon Snow. A Feast for Crows Best POV goes to Cersei Worst POV might be Samwell. I like fat boy but he's not mr. excitement. A Dance with Dragons Best POVs are Daenerys Targaryen's. Flying her dragon was an awesome read. Worst POV is Arya Stark's. She did not belong in this book. I would have preferred if she was not in this book.
