    Does Asoiaf Have a True Protagonist? *SPOILERS*

    I disagree with just about everything you wrote. The story in the east is just as important, if not more so, than what's happening in the west. Three of the main characters are in the east. The main character in the story, Daenerys Targaryen. And then Tyrion and Arya.

    The two big endgame prices

    The title of the last book should be a clue. A Dream of Spring. Daenerys and Jorah will look towards the west from the top of the Great Pyramid and dream of the day when the ice will finally melt so they can return to Westeros. Hope is the prize. Daenerys will await the day when she can finally reclaim her lands in the west. In the meantime, there will be plenty to do in Essos. Winter will kill almost all of the people in Westeros. Arya and Jon will finally get what they want. To be together. But not how they wanted. The Starks will come back to life as direwolves. They will finally be together in a pack.

    Does Asoiaf Have a True Protagonist? *SPOILERS*

    Jon is dead. He will warg into Ghost before expiring, I grant you. He gets to live as a wolf. But I fail to see how a shaggy direwolf can be the second-most important character in the end. Daenerys is already the most important character. She has been since AGOT. I would love to put House Frey on the top list for protagonist but even if my sympathies are with them, that is not the intention of George Martin.

    Tyrion, the lord of chaos

    I interpret this to mean everybody in general. Tyrion will cause a disruption in everyone. He won't be exclusively involved with the Targaryens. This is like something Mel would do.

    Kraznys mo Naklos - Charming Villain

    This, I would love this as well. She would make a fine rider to guard the flank. The people of Na'ath make the best servants. But you know, Missandei may not be all that rare. Human raw material is very easy and cheap to come by. Their training is a value-added system in which the product becomes more and more valuable as they progress in their lessons. So one boy in three successfully complete the training. Wow. It's more than physical skills. The students have to be mentally tough. Keeping up with their constantly changing names would be mental torture. Whose to say Krazny doesn't put his aide through the same testing? Like maybe he killed five girls to finally end up with someone like Missandei. And why would he give her away? He didn't. Krazny just made the biggest deal of his career. The biggest deal of any master in living memory. He could well afford to part with Missandei. Ah and so the same can be said of George R. R Martin. We can never accuse him of taking shortcuts in the making of his books. I think so. That makes it more special. Investing brilliant dialogue in a minor character whose time is limited.

    Which Freys deserve to die for what House Frey did to House Stark?

    Stark fans seem to forget this. I don't think the Freys will do any better against the White Walkers but the north will be devastated before the Freys have to face them. The north may get their revenge but it's going to be a bittersweet victory. They will get wightified and then attack the Freys. Then soon after these same wightified northerners will get roasted on the Trident.

    The Prophecy Glitch

    The only thing Quaithe and Mel have in common are being Shadowbinders from Asshai. I would not assume Mel is a friend to Snowhead. A deeply religious person is only loyal to her god and never to a man. The same can be said for Moqorro. Mo is not loyal to Captain Victarion. He serves R'hllor. Mel serves R'hllor. She's not loyal to Stannis and she is not going to be loyal to Snowflake.

    Kraznys mo Naklos - Charming Villain

    That chapter was pure treasure. The dialogue was a delight. However, I don't think there are deeper meanings to be had. The chapter merely told us how bad ass the Unsullied are and how morally screwed up the Astapori are. Dany was now obligated to save the Unsullied from this hell. If you're a city on the losing die, you better hope it's to the Unsullied. They are completely professional. That sealed the deal. The Unsullied had to be saved from the cruelty of the Astapori.

    Will Jon be Dany's heir

    No, Rhaegar would never have been king. Aerys disinherited him. Aerys preferred Viserys over Rhaegar. Aegon has a chance of being legit but there is also a good chance of him being a Blackfyre. That would put him behind Daenerys in the line of succession. Assuming a line of succession even exists. When the crown passed to Viserys, all of Rhaegar's children, be they Aegon or Jon (there are very good evidence that support they are not his sons) got disinherited.

    What is your theory on The Others?

    I agree with a lot of what you said, Sophia. People love to create heroes but if you think it through, the darkness did not go away because of something man did. The weather just changed. No magic sword can drive away the darkness. The Starks make human sacrifices to their trees. Craster leaves his sons out in the trees where the WW presumably take them. I don't think they will take just any human sacrifice. It has to have the blood of the Starks. Craster is related to the Stark. He is kin to the Starks. This is the difference between Brynden Rivers and Bran Stark. The reason why Bran is needed. Only a Stark has the gift to control the wights. It's anyone's guess why the Others are now mobilizing. The best guess is the climate change. They follow the weather. One other good theory, the Starks stopped feeding their sons to their trees. A pact existed whereby the Starks agreed to sacrifice a son of the house at some agreed interval. Why must there always be a Stark in Winterfell? Let's think. What is it exactly that is in Winterfell? The magic weirwood tree that's been fed blood since it was a seedling. The saying can mean a Stark must always be there to give their blood to the tree.

    Will Jon be Dany's heir

    Oh yes he would. Daenerys already told us. She is the heir to King Viserys, the third of His name. Viserys is the one who was formally crowned. Rhaegar was not. Rhaegar never even got close to the crown. That's probably why he wanted to call a Great Council. He was smarting because his father disinherited him. Which is totally understandable if we buy into your theory of R + L = J why Aerys would disinherit his son for such an irresponsible behavior. If you want to take road, very well. I can tell you, King Aerys II and his successor, King Viserys III will never allow the child of Lyanna Stark to inherit their kingdom. You might recall, King Aerys II thought of the Starks as traitors to the crown. This discussion is only relevant if Jon is the son of Rhaegar. There is still the problem of bastardry even if this should prove true. The dark pall of Jon's treason at the Wall also hangs over his head. I can't see anybody trusting Jon after that. There are way too many hurdles for Longface and there are more logical choices besides. Daenerys has people she can leave behind to rule Westeros before she goes back to Meereen. Aegon.

    Lord Walder Bolton

    The Freys have a much better chance of survival than the Starks. The Others will have to pass through the north before they can get to the Riverlands. The Starks and most of their bannermen will get wightified and those zombies will be the ones to kill a lot of Freys. It's a good thing there are many Freys scattered all over Westeros.

    Random Though: Jon was named "Brandon" by Lyanna

    Brandon + Lyanna = Jon I agree. That is something Eddard would do.
  14. The Lord of the Crossing

    What Needs to Be Accomplished

    A Dream of Spring. The title says it all. The struggle to survive while hoping for the arrival of spring. Few people will stay in the ice zones of Westeros. The southern areas of Dorne and the Crownlands might escape the brutal winters though. The common folk will escape the winter and cross over to Essos. They will spend the time covered by the book looking towards home and wondering when the ice will thaw. The nobles are tied to their lands. Land is the source of power and status for these people. And they will die huddled in their castles. Daenerys will continue her war against slavery. The Volantene slaves will revolt against their masters.
