    The Updated Exodus Theory and its Corollaries

    This fiction tries too hard to not only build up Jon into a greater role but places him in too good of a situation. One of the few ideas that I can buy into is the eventual need for the Westerosi to migrate to Essos. But to make this migration possible, the slavery machine will have to be removed. All of the slaving states will have to be forced to change. And a mass migration does not have to have one leader. A more realistic scenario is a disorganized migration characterized by widespread panic and chaos.
  2. Are you saying Aegon is a girl? Hahahah I mean, he is a dragon and they are genderless.

    Future Centers of Power in a Democratic Westeros/Systems of Government

    Democracy didn't start out as the system that we know today. My history courses are behind me and it has been decades since I've sat in a classroom. People of color (i.e. slaves) and non-land owners were excluded from participation in the democratic process. It's not going to skip from feudalism to modern democracy in Westeros. The light of progress may come from the east if Daenerys Targaryen creates a system in which the freed slaves are given the power to choose their own leaders. Such a system can make its way to Westeros after the long night has killed off the Starks, Baratheons, Lannisters, Tullys, Arryns, and any other noble family who would resist losing the status.

    Do You Think Sam Will Forge His Chain?

    Part of a chain. He might have enough time to forge a link or two.

    Please explain Ramsay and the Pink Letter.

    Ramsay wrote the letter but there is a lot of fan fiction attempting to point the finger towards Stannis and Mance because that would create a more favorable outcome for Jon. Which I don't like but that's the way it is. More "story" has been written here than all of the books combined.

    Is x character a psychopath?

    The insurance man. He would not have been in business for long if he had been guilty of fraud. Might be the insured failed to read the contract thoroughly.

    Is x character a psychopath?

    Nurture versus nature. He was born without much of an empathy and then an early childhood of violence didn't help. My opinion, the person who feels nothing is worse than the person who gets a kick out of it. A person without feelings is not your norm. There's something wrong up there.

    Crasters White Walker arrangement

    Craster is just doing what the First Men used to do. The north got more civilized and forgot to honor their gods. They forgot who the Old Gods actually are, the WW. Isn't it typical of the gods to ask for a sacrifice?

    Shadows Babies and Others

    It is a tale. Factor in major exaggeration and spinning. Asshai is like the ground zero of a radioactive fallout. A shadow is created when something is blocking the light. The something can be the real thing and the shadow is a copy. Stannis was the real thing in that ritual. The shadow is the copy. Mellisandre was the shadowbinder who bound the copy to do her bidding. There is a correlation in the methodology. The Others appear when the light is blocked. They bind the dead to do their bidding. The dead are a pale shadow of the living. The Others use skin changing to accomplish this. Mellisandre uses what kind of control mechanism?

    Shadows Babies and Others

    It doesn't mean he'll be king. It just means he will have the stature of a king.

    Dany's dream about the Trident

    I disagree. Jon is not Azor Ahai. Daenerys is Azor Ahai. Rhaegar was wrong about a lot of things and he is very likely wrong about his son, if he even had one besides Aegon.

    Robert and Maester Aemon

    Whatever claims Aemon had to the throne went down the hole in the Outhouse as soon as he took his vows. The vows are final and there is no release. Aemon could never ever play politics again. His life belonged to the watch and there is no out clause in this contract. No lawyering can get him out of those vows. Therefore, he was no longer a threat.

    Jon's Shield Hall Speech and Subsequent Plan

    Poor Jon doesn't get it. He does know nothing. He should have kept the peace with the Boltons instead of doing something so reckless as to send his operative, who also happens to be a sworn brother of the NW, to fetch his sister. Jon was a hypocrite throughout that whole time. He sent a sworn brother of the watch to do something criminal and against the laws of the land. Mance Rayder is still a man of the watch and what he did under Jon's orders was illegal. Killing the Bolton servants was very inappropriate and broke the custom of guest rights.
