    Best/Worst POV Storylines in Each Book

    A Game of Thrones: BEST: Daenerys Targaryen WORST: Sansa Stark A Clash of Kings: BEST: Daenerys Targaryen (House of the Undying is one of the best chapters in all five books) WORST: Jon Snow A Storm of Swords: BEST: Daenerys Targaryen WORST: Jon Snow A Feast For Crows: BEST: Samwel Tarly WORST: Jaime Lannister A Dance with Dragons: BEST: Daenerys Targaryen. SECOND BEST: Quentyn Martell WORST: Theon Greyjoy (I like Theon but I'm not interested in the north)

    Craster and the Others: Why?

    Craster, the Starks, and the Others share the same family tree. Remember the story of the pale woman and the Nk? The Nk was a Stark and this pale woman sought him out. He was compatible. It's a compatibility thing. The male children are the future mates for the female among the Others.

    The Others "inside" man

    The human who is acting out of fear and attachment can cause more harm than the outright villain like Ramsay. The Starks would have divided the kingdom if they had gotten their way. Roose Bolton, Walder Frey, and Tywin Lannister stopped them from dividing the nation. A whole nation rather than one fragmented is better able to handle war. Supporting Roose Bolton's leadership of the north is more beneficial. Stannis and Jon's war against the Boltons will hurt more than help. It's better for Team Stannis and Jon to lose quickly.

    Exile from Valyria, why?

    They were much more than well off. They were one of the forty ruling families of Valyria.

    How long had the north wanted independence for?

    There are different factions in the north. The hardliners probably wanted independence right when Torrhen bent his knees to Aegon. Just foolish pride.
  6. Stannis already chose his god. No alliance is possible until Robb gives up his plan to make the north an independent kingdom.

    Why did George give daenerys everything

    It's a lucky break that the Stark kids didn't earn. It's a gift from the author. Bran would be dead if it were not for his dire wolf. And you're trying to diminish Daenerys Targaryen's high intelligence, unmatched courage, and terrific leadership abilities. You're attempting to attribute all of her accomplishments to the dragons. Which is simply not true. Daenerys was on the path to greatness even before the arrival of the dragons. The dragons take an already very intelligent young person and puts her on the path to do great deeds. Jon Snow didn't exactly have to work for his wolf. He got special treatment at the wall because he is the bastard son of the warden of the north. That's right, Jon got away with attempted murder. He won an election that he didn't deserve to win, thanks to Samwell rigging the election. He got a Valyrian steel sword for free which a man of far greater accomplishment like Tywin Lannister can only envy. The point is, all of the five top tier characters got something. Daenerys is the top character and she has a really tough mission to end slavery that will require power to accomplish.

    Will Arya end up marrying Jon?

    It was his feelings for Arya that caused Jon to betray the watch. That feeling will live on in his direwolf form. All they need do is wait for her to die as a human and she can take on the direwolf form. They can live and mate together as wolves.

    Will Arya end up marrying Jon?

    He is in love with her but I doubt they will get together as humans. They will both die and become direwolves. They can then mate to their heart's content. They will be together in the future and live on as mates but perhaps not in their human form but during their second lives.

    Sam in basic training

    The message boards is a small place. I doubt anybody interested enough to read our exchange will have too much trouble finding your entire post. I chose to reply to a specific point to that specific idea.

    Sam in basic training

    That's Tyrion being the small, petty man that he is and blows Alliser off because he doesn't like him. Alliser and Samwell didn't choose to come to that wall. It should come as no surprise that neither are the best fit for what they do. Yes. Free pass. Basic training is that which every member of the armed services is required before they move on to their specialized duties. There is OTC for people coming in with college degrees and other experience. But they are still expected to have familiarity with weapons. Bloodraven, Thorne, and Mormont have fighting experience and they are not expected to start off as a raw recruit. They have proven to meet the requirements. Maester Aemon was already a grad of the citadel when he came in. He came in highly skilled and ready for his job. Maester didn't come with only basic, general skills. Samwell may be literate but he is not highly skilled at anything. To claim that Samwell had good value right from the start is false. Anybody on that wall can taught to read. Jon basically screwed over a guy who had an easy job to make a place for his friend. Samwell got a break and I can't recall that the watch is better served for it.

    Illyrio dragon eggs. a plot hole?

    Magister Illyrio is a man with many mistresses. He was playing a lot of hands hoping one of them would play out. That's what an investor does when they speculate. He took a chance when he gave Princess Daenerys the eggs and it paid off. Just not the way he hoped because she didn't follow his script and instead chose to use her powers to help the slaves.
