    The naming of dragons

    There were not many dragons. They have had no need to reuse the names. Only some Targaryens had dragons. Many did not.

    House of the Undying. The Three Mounts

    The campaign against slavery will reduce the Dothraki population and thus open the way to a more peaceful Essos.

    House of the Undying. The Three Mounts

    You could say Mance dug a crack on the wall and planted HIS seed, Jon Snow, in the crack. The roots of the rose will further undermine the wall. Which is exactly what happened when Jon became commander.

    Summerhall is central to the series

    We will have to disagree on this. Summerhall is connected to Rhaegar. A man who thought he was important. Now we know that he doesn't have any more significance other than being a member of the royal family.

    The Others "inside" man

    I don't dismiss the idea of somebody secretly working for the Others but the cause of the problem is man. Man is doing something to create the problem. It maybe is an issue of morality. Preston Jacobs has this point of view where he posits an interesting use for the Nightfort. The right to the first night produce a lot of unwanted bastards. Some socially acceptable way had to be in place to rid the couple of these extra mouths to feed. The north being poor put pressure on the newly wed couple to dispose of their lords bastard without getting their hands dirty and incurring the anger of the lord father. The bastard gate was used for this purpose. The babies were carried out and left for the Ww to carry off. The threat is coming about as the result of the sins of man.

    Summerhall is central to the series

    Summerhall is not close to the importance of the Dance of the Dragons in terms of its effect on history. It is a cautionary tale for those who want to dabble in magic to hatch dragon eggs. Only the Special Promised One can bring back the dragons from extinction. Egg was not that person. There's really nothing special about Egg and the Targaryens of that generation. We can also deduce from this what Egg was thinking. He thought he needed the power of the dragons to force the high lords to make life better for the smallfolk. He saw the high lords as the problem. I don't think there is any significance to the tragedy of Summerhall beyond this.

    Is x character a psychopath?

    Ramsay and Theon Stark come to mind. Gregor is a stupid beast who doesn't know any better.

    Stannis, the first lie and the false light

    The weapon to slay the three lies are Dany's true identity. Azor Ahai, Princess of Dragonstone and heir to Westeros, and the Dragon. If we believe in the prophecy, and I do, the liars will be Stannis, Aegon, and Jon.

    What do you think is going on?

    Trying to find the descendants of the Bloodstone emperor is like trying to find the descendants of Gilgamesh. The legend is probably not even true. If it is true and some of those people are still alive then what. Maybe they're fishermen and wine sellers with no idea of who their ancestors are.

    Did any non-targaryen valyrians ever have any prophetic dreams?

    Not that we know of. More might have taken the warning seriously had it came from more than one person.

    House of the Undying. The Three Mounts

    The husbands die and somebody gets burned for the crime. Vicky murdering Hizdahr would earn him a blind date with the flames. How's that for a hot date.

    Daenerys (very likely) has Stark ancestry

    Let's send them a DNA kit from ancestry dot com and have them all give a sample. What George is telling us is bloodlines do not matter for most people. It's only once in a blue moon that the recessive genes express themselves. The amount of Stark blood is tiny but there. It's presence doesn't mean the carrier will have warg talent. In the same way that it doesn't mean every secret Targ bastard will be able to ride a dragon. Then you have to also put forth in consideration that even the ones with a talent do not have it at the same level. Some Targaryens were bad riders. Athletic talent can factor into the ability to ride. The dragon may accept the rider but the rider may not have the balance. I think Dany's time with the Dothraki helped make her into a skilled rider. So for the Starks, a guy like Bran who has had time will be the best warg.

    Ned shouldn't have allowed Robb and Theon to become so close

    Ned had a soft heart for kids but there is a limit to his compassion. He would decap Theon if father Balon rebels. But life goes on. Ned didn't allow the pal of that to make his family too dysfunctional. Social pressure creates that line so the children knew where each of them stood. Ned expected his children and Theon to know where that line is at all times. There was little rivalry because everybody knew their place. Jon's presence caused more unrest at the Stark home than Theon's fostering. I blame that on social pressure and the threat that Jon had to the inheritance. Catelyn acted similarly to Rhaenyra and Allicent. She poisoned her own children against Jon like those two did before the Dance of the Dragons. Oh how I would dearly love to have a Dance of the Direwolves!
