    What are some significant differences between Robb and Jon?

    They were not put into their positions. They chose or accepted. And they chose to betray the duties of their positions for love. Martin himself believes humans are more alike and not different at all. He also prepared us for the poor judgment to come. Robb worried about the appearance of his bride at a time when they were facing war. Jon already tried to desert the watch before.

    Why did Jon Arryn raise his banners ?

    Brandon rode fully-armed into the red keep and threatened the king's family. No one would have had any problem with his death. Rickard could have begged the king's forgiveness instead of asking for a trial. Aerys can be reasoned with as proven by Barristan's request to spare Dontos Hollard. He also spared Ethan. Who repaid the mercy by fighting the king's guards at the tower. Robert will be a future thorn in the side because he is not going to forget Lyanna. He had to be dealt with. Eddard Stark should accept the death sentence on Brandon but might want revenge for Rickard. He had to go.

    Why did Hoster Tully support the rebellion ?

    Hoster had a daughter who has already been disgraced. That's too much for his pride and the chance to marry her off to a lord paramount could not be passed up.

    An Evil Name

    Jon is already the turncoat at the wall. He is way worse than the anti-hero and he is the one who had the chance to defend the wall but failed because of his over attachment to Arya.

    Agree. He can't control his emotions. I am reminded of Anikin's over attachment to his mother and how it drove him to violence. He can't stick to the rules and pursued a relationship when it was forbidden by the order. That is how Jon is exactly. Jon going dark and having to be burned for the good of humanity will make for great reading and might add interest to his story line.

    We obviously are far and wide apart when it comes to agreement. Jon lost his head over the thought of Arya and Ramsay. Think how he would go berserk if he got word of her death. He reacted foolishly after the arrival of the pink letter.

    Stoneheart will only do that if Jon is set to avenge the Starks. Revenge is all she has in mind. Jon will be the same. He might get the news that Arya is dead and that will be enough to flip his mind to the dark side.

    Is Jon Already a King in the books? Aka What makes a King?

    Jon has already perverted the office of lord commander by interfering with the Boltons. He also executed a sworn brother for a comparatively minor crime while letting Mance Rayder go unpunished.

    Is Jon Already a King in the books? Aka What makes a King?

    All memories of warmth will leave his body. He is a descendant of the traitor, Nights King. He let Mance Rayder go unpunished. He attempted desertion to help Robb. The betrayals are there. Jon was the one who betrayed the watch.

    The Red Wedding Was Justified.

    Ned actually betrayed Robert AND Joffrey. We know his intentions but the north do not. He hid the truth from the dying Robert. And, besides himself, Jaime, and Cersei, the appearance to the world looked like he was attempting to take power from Joffrey. Ned would be convicted of treason in any court. You and I are talking about the nuance and the finer details. Of which Robb Stark and the north would never concern themselves with. One of their own is the prisoner and the question of guilt or innocence (nor the negative consequences to the common people if war should happen) did not factor in the decision to march to battle. It occurred to Catelyn but she still arrested Tyrion. It's the irrational level of love of family that brings on the problems and the suffering. It leads people to make decisions that hurt more than help. That is true indictment for both the Starks and the Freys.

    Is Jon Already a King in the books? Aka What makes a King?

    Jon is King of Nothing. Guards that would seemingly die to protect him? Oh my. The last people which he led made the choice to kill him because of his incompetence and oath breaking. Divine? R+L=J might be a fact on the show but it is very far from that in the books. That might be something completely made up by Benioff and Weiss. Jon has only achieved to weaken the strength of an organization that is thousands of years old and betrayed them to help his sister. Frankly, to help the girl who he thought was Arya. Jon is one of the causes of problems in Westeros. He is more of a trouble maker rather than a protagonists. If Jon is to become king it will be the Night King 2.0. The parallels are there. Lord Commanders who betrayed the Watch. He will become the Ice King, one of the main antagonists in the story.

    Valyria, A Gender Equal Society?

    There are information about Valyria that we are not aware of. But what we know supports the idea of gender equality. What really elevates status in Valyria is the ability to bond with and ride dragons. A female who can and did "birth" dragons from petrified eggs would be very special indeed and thus elevated to a very high status.

    The story isn't that hard to follow. The 13th Lord Commander was a brave man who carried out his duties bravely until one day he fell under the spell of pale woman. He wasn't born a bad man. Jon Snow wasn't born a bad man. Love just tipped them over the edge. Desire won over duty. It is an intriguing possibility if one of their offsprings survived and brought the blood of the Others to the Stark bloodline. It means the Starks carry the blood of the warg king, Others, and Bael. I proposed a theory that the Starks and Craster are closely related. That will explain why Craster's brood was so important to the Others. They're kin. That could also explain why the Others want to cross the wall. They have a claim to Stark lands because they are, for the most part, also Starks.

    The Red Wedding Was Justified.

    They annoyed the north by killing Ned but it was not enough to motivate them to attack. Robb had to threaten the bannermen and Lady Dustin only agreed to send men because she feared the wrath of Winterfell. May I remind you, Ned admitted to treason. Many in the north are angry right now but that will be shortlived.
