    Robb's campaign

    Burning and looting puts pressure on the people who in turn will put pressure on their lord. It could work. The armies of the north under Robb Stark did all of that already.

    Famous people with skills transferable to Westeros

    I choose Gene Simmons from the great American group KISS. I wanna rock and roll all night. Bring the magic of rock and roll to planetos.

    What's your favorite speech?

    Ser Barristan Selmy's Pre-Battle Speech in Meereen. I loved that speech because it was coming from someone with a lot of wisdom and experience. It was full of good advice too.

    Patchface is a threat to Mellissandre

    Mellissandre saw the same vision for Jon Snow. Did she not see skulls all around Jon Snow? I don't have my books to look it up at the moment. The skulls symbolize death. Same lady seeing skulls around two different men. We know how it ended for Jon Snow. His face is getting pale, bleeding out, on a patch of snow. Will the same thing happen to Patchface? Killed at the wall, I mean. We can also assume the skulls represent threats to Mellissandre. If Patchface is a threat, was Jon Snow also a threat? Or was, before Bowen Marsh cut him up.

    Rhaego? Really?

    Aerys ii kingsgs guard

    Were the best. He had an awesome group of men serving him. And I will echo @Finley McLeod in saying "except for Jamie Lannister". There are some jobs that call for dedication and total commitment. Those are obviously not the same as the work-for-a-paycheck occupations that most people have. The KGs serve Aerys and it is their duty to protect him. Also consider the time period. Many men, common and high born, would have stood by as another man took advantage of his wife or beaten their children. Think of all those Northmen who stood by as their higher lords raped the newly wedded girls. In hindsight, yes they might have advised His Royal Highness to be gentle and kinder to his wife. We have evidence to support that the king listened to advice.

    Euron Greyjoy or Roose Bolton - Who has more morals?

    Roose is not really evil. He's a very harsh warlord is all. He broke the king's law by raping Ramsay's mother and killing the husband. He made the squatters work and then hanged them anyway. He's a cruel man. Harsh and cruel. Those are not rare qualities in those times. Raping the newly wed and killing the husband is extreme but probably happens a lot in the north. Roose and his thinking had not caught up to the Targaryen ban on ritualistic bride raping. Worse things happen on the north side of the wall among the wildlings. Much worse things are committed by the slave masters in the far east.

    Rhaego? Really?

    I agree he is dead. However, the prophecy did not die with him. It may not even be about him. The stallion who mounts the world, the Khal of khals will be a khaleesi. Khaleesi and Drogon will mount the world and bring all of the khalasars together.

    Rhaego? Really?

    This. Rhaego's soul went into one of the dragons.

    Will FAegon tame a dragon?

    Will FAegon tame a dragon? I don't believe so. He had a chance to meet Daenerys but chose instead to proceed without her. That will be his undoing. The boy doesn't understand the power of the dragons. He will end up facing the Lannisters without dragons and many will doubt who he is.

    What are your favorite POV's?

    I love Daenerys and all of her chapters. My favorite are either the hatching of the dragons on the Dothraki Sea or the first time Daenerys rode Drogon at Daznaks Pit. Both of them are epic chapters.

    Roose Bolton's Contingency Plan

    He made opportunities. Waiting for an opportunity is passive. Roose was active in reducing the number of men available to the Starks.

    Roose Bolton's Contingency Plan

    The Freys made it possible to remove the rebels without too much trouble. The war would have continued and the victory uncertain without them.

    Why did Sansa dislike being Northern?

    That was Catelyn's plans for her. And a girl who dreams of handsome knights in shining armor is not going to be happy in the north. She's raised by an Andal.

    Would Cersei have cheated with Jaime if she been married to Stannis

    She would do the same. Except Stannis would suspect. That is enough for Stannis to execute them and their children. Stannis is very harsh. The children will not be spared.
