  1. Uh no. The Targaryens built Westeros into a kingdom that was stable for a feudal system. If you want to put the blame on the decline of Westeros, point your finger at the Baratheons, Starks, Arryn, and Tully. The awful state of the kingdom is the result of their incompetence. The Targaryens are the best thing to ever happen to Westeros and its smallfolk.

    Predict her future: Penny

    Tyrion has one thing on his mind: revenge. I would love to say Penny will snap him out of it but I seem to recall she hates Cersei. Penny is not the kind of girl to forgive. She tried to slice Tyrion for what Cersei did to her brother. You know what would be cool. If they partner together in taking down Cersei and Jaime.

    Jon's Shield Hall Speech and Subsequent Plan

    The problem is, Jon should never have started that feud with the Boltons. There would have been no pink letter if Jon had kept to his duties instead of messing with Ramsay. It was all Jon's fault.

    How far south will the Others get?

    They will get as far as the weather permits. If I had to guess, they will be stopped at the trident.

    Why was Viserys mad and his "Sister" and "Brother" wasn't?

    Care to provide us with a link to this interview? Killing Slynt was not necessarily crazy but it is proof of why Jon is not fit to lead. Jon is symbolic of somebody like Rhaegar and Brandon. Extremely flawed people with a fatal weakness that kept them from doing their duties. The wall will fall because Jon can't keep to his job. I will agree it wasn't crazy but it is proof for why Jon is not fit to lead people. He can lead the Stark wolf pack when they are on their second lives as direwolves. He's fit for that. But to lead people, no way. It is wildly exaggerated. I read Fire and Blood and it proved the scarcity of madness in the family. It was an exaggeration because the history that we have been reading in the main books were coming from the perspective of Baratheon-Stark supporters. FB is revealing. Well, as much as George ever reveals. Slynt was a popular guy. He indeed had a following. Jon wasted an opportunity to win them over for the sake of revenge. I don't think Jon was crazy at that moment but he is not emotionally balanced. His judgment was and is very poor. Jon is totally not qualified nor fit to lead. He has the same chances. I agree. No more, no less. Jaime is like that. And lumpy stumpy wouldn't even make a mediocre king. He'd be terrible.

    Shade of the evening.

    The black barked trees are black as an adaptation to sunlight. It's like dark skin pigmentation is an adaptation to the sun's harsh rays. The source of the long night is in the north of Westeros, where the evil lives. The warlocks are evil too but so far as the ones who want to bring on this long night, the evil is in the north of Westeros.

    Is death good? Why fight the Others?

    What a question! Great thoughts written by my predecessors already. We are genetically programmed to value our lives. It has served us well and got us this far. But in my humble opinion, this is not the true path to our evolution. We can better our instincts. The true path to enlightenment and morality is to learn to value the lives, rights, and wellbeing of other species as much as we value our own. We have to evolve beyond being a humanists and learn to value non-human lives as much as we value our own. I think that is the real path to morality. The concepts of right and wrong that you present is bound by the limitations of human instinct, which we know is not programmed for morality but rather to serve the survival of that one species. It is selfish. Selfish is not good. There is a better way. A life of generosity and compassion is much, much better to me.

    My guess is they do. But that's just a low confidence guess. Sunlight is plentiful in Essos and the trees have access to photosynthesis. That's a whole different situation from a weirwood having to survive in the absence of light. Maybe these black trees do not require it.
  9. Queen Daenerys Targaryen. So unless Ashara Dayne comes back to life at her prime, yes, the more beautiful queen is Daenerys Targaryen. She is the only one who is without a doubt more beautiful than Cersei. She is the most beautiful woman in the world after all.

    Meanwhile back at the Wall

    The Watch takes no part. That means they stand aside if Ramsay wants to take into custody the family of rebels. That is a lot preferable to what Jon did, send a wildling to get his sister so he can hide her away from her husband. None of this would have happened if Jon had not made an attempt to get Arya away from Ramsay. Unfortunately, Jon put the watch in a terrible situation and Bowen will have to let the Boltons take away the loser's (Stannis lost the war) family into custody in order to save the watch. Survival of the watch is the most important thing right now. They will have to assure the Boltons that they have impeached their oathbreaking lc and from now on the watch will stay neutral. Maybe Bowen didn't get the opportunity to send a raven after the meeting. But he should do so as soon as he's finished with Jon.
  11. Then we have a different story. One of the lessons in the story is about the nature of prophecy. Stannis should follow common sense. There is no correlation between the burning of a little girl and victory in battle. Prophecy is hit or miss, mostly miss, for most people. In your story, Stannis makes the sacrifice and wins a victory. Many will say it's luck and the sacrifice had nothing to do with it. Davos may fall into that camp. I still think he will stick with Stannis. He will grieve and mourn but I don't think he will leave Stannis after they win the battle of ice. Winning the battle of ice is not the same as winning the iron throne. The line of succession failed and the IT is up for grabs for anyone strong enough to take it. Stannis will have to conquer Westeros to put his skinny ass on the throne. And that is much harder than conquering a drafty old castle in the north.

    Meanwhile back at the Wall

    Jon is dead, or dying. It would be pointless for any few of his supporters to fight Bowen Marsh. It would accomplish nothing. Even the boys who like Jon will understand why Bowen did what he did. I don't expect any opposition to Marsh coming from the crows. The only problem will come from the wildlings and only if he tries to stop them from raiding the Boltons. I hope he doesn't do that. It will be a long march to Winterfell and they will be weak by the time they get there. Roose and Ramsay should have the advantage. First on Bowen's To Do List, send a message to the Boltons ASAP and tell them what has happened. That is actually what he should have done as soon as Jon ended his public speech.

    Daenerys Targaryen's Power Plays

    Volantis is as good as hers. IF SHE WANTS IT. Or not. But she may decide to go there anyway and help the slaves because she is Mhysa. I would also add Braavos to that friends list because many in that city oppose slavery.

    Daenerys Targaryen's Power Plays

    Winning the Battle of Fire is not the end to slavery. It will break the masters' backs for sure but slavery will continue until the Dothraki can be convinced to buy into Daenerys Targaryen's issued Emancipation Proclamation for all slaves. Slavery is supported by supply and demand. The Dothraki khalasars harvest slaves from throughout Essos. Stopping the supply of slaves will necessitate stopping it at the source. But yeah, should this happen it will be her next great achievement. The Emancipation will outlaw the owning of slaves and thus curb the demand. There is no one else who can do this besides her. If we look closely at her allies and servants (Jorah, Daario, Barristan, Tyrion), none of these men are too motivated to fight slavery except that they do it because she tells them to. Only Greyworm but he doesn't have the skill set to bring on social change of this size.

    Bolton's Burnt Book: Mysterious Reading

    I don't think Roose was simply passing time because he was bored. The book was a decoder for a short coded message that had a lot of things to say. Ravens can only carry small messages due to the limitations of what they can carry. Me thinks a coded message was sent to Roose that referenced passages in the book. The raven mail gave the name of the book and the pages. Words in the pages were marked. Problem is, somebody would have had to spend time with the book before Roose got there. But what if it's a popular volume on the Westeros Best Seller of the past and somebody with a copy of the same book sent the message telling Roose the pages he needed to look at. That is more feasible in my opinion. Imprecise but three very smart men like Tywin, Walder, and Roose can fill in between the text to work out the message.
