    The Tyrion of Fevre Dream (spoiler)

    Daenerys and Joshua are the characters where the stories pivot. They are the agents of change within their respective stories. Abner is the main view point. He's the almost average person who got pulled into the dreams of the agents of change. Abner can indeed be likened to Tyrion, Jorah, Barristan, Daario, and Missandei. Though yes, it is Tyrion that most closely match. The supporting casts of Jonathon, Mike, Toby, have the same role thatof Daario, Barristan, and Greyworm have.

    A closer look at Roslin Frey

    The Freys would vary greatly in appearance because Walder had so many wives. Each wife would bring new blood to the family. The Starks are generally unattractive but there is the injection of outsider blood that can sometimes bring in an easy on the eyes appearance. The elongated faces do not always show up in every Stark. The weak chin will not always show up in every Frey. What girl would want her wedding day to end in blood? Her reaction was normal. It doesn't mean she liked the Starks. It's not a sign that she didn't feel insulted by the Stark's betrayal. Wedding day should be a special time of happiness and the start of a wonderful relationship. Roslin knew this was not to be. Naturally she would be sad. Her grief was not necessarily because she had a fondness for the wolves who betrayed her family.

    Foreshadowing the end of house stark

    Ending the Stark family would make for a terrific ending to this epic. The dead direwolf was an explicit warning to all Starks to stay north. They didn't listen. Going south is the death of the Starks. Robb, Ned, Cat died when they went south. Jon died when he attempted to go south to confront the Boltons. Lyanna, Rickard, and Brandon all died in the south.

    Did the Red Comet _____ ?

    Dany's interpretation was the most accurate because the comet led her khalasar to Vaes Tolorro. The most important event of the last 150 years took place under the red comet. The birth of the three dragons.

    Did the Red Comet _____ ?

    There is no future in a death unless one becomes a White Walker. Which we know Rhaego did not. The comet arrived during the funeral ceremony for Drogo.

    Did the Red Comet _____ ?

    The idea came from the bible. The star that appeared during the birth of the Christ. The comet appeared at the perfect time to announce the birth of the dragons and the rebirth of Daenerys Targaryen. Three wizards came seeking the dragons not long after. Three kings came seeking the Christ.

    Appropriate Punishment for Catelyn

    Inconsistency, partiality, and emotions are the enemies of justice. These two fools brought their followers to ruin.
  8. Must be a Dayne from the father or the mother. Must be male. Must be brave. Must have reasonable skills with a sword. Good reputation and respected. Best choices include fAegon and Darkstar. Darkstar is not nice but what warrior is. These two are the best choices to me. Jaime doesn't meet any of the criteria, except having testicles. Jon could be a Dayne, he is male, with reasonable sword skills. But Jon is not respectable and he is an oathbreaker. I'm sure the lord of the morning can't be an ice zombie. Loras is not a Dayne.

    Do you like Feast and Dance?

    I loved the 5th book, A Dance with Dragons. I cannot say the same for Feast.

    Is House Blackfyre really extinct on the male line?

    The legitimate male line was destroyed but there must be more than a few bastards carrying the Blackfyre line without knowing it. Bastardry makes a difference socially and legally. The science of genetics does not discriminate. A Blackfyre semen will serve Dany's purposes just as well as a Targaryen if she should desire to rebuild the dragon dynasty.

    f/Aegon's Fate, Reborn

    If real, Griff (Aegon?) is an interesting love interest for the main character, Daenerys Targaryen. He is bold and handsome. Fire + Fire is a good team. It is an interesting romantic possibility if he survives Doran's plotting. His role for the time being is to sow more chaos in Westeros. The wolves, lions, stags, and trouts have done the people a disservice. The realm is suffering because of Ned, Robb, Tywin, Catelyn, Jon Snow, Renly, Balon, Euron, Jaime, Robert, and Stannis. Those arrogant fools destroyed what the Targaryens built. Little Griff threw himself into the fight. He might survive Doran's plot. Everyone who got caught in Doran's plotting have so far died.

    Predicting and Gambling

    And the preserved bodies of the NK and the NQ are hidden in the crypts awaiting the Others. The Starks are duty bound to protect them until they can be resurrected.
  13. Whose to say Lyanna would have been a better wife for Robert? Lyanna had the potential to wreck the kingdom as badly as Cersei and Jaime did. Robert's biggest sin was failing to keep the Starks and the Lannisters under control. He failed because he was too close to these families.

    Is GRRM As Complex As You Believe He Is?

    The story can be as simple as a princess in exile who found a worthy cause. Across the sea, the lords of a medieval kingdom are failing the people because they are more interested in advancing their own families instead of bettering the lives of their small folk. Those who want to dig into what drives the human heart to do idiotic things will find complexity.
  15. I don't believe this to be the case. George is waiting so his story is the last word. He gets to repair the damage by the show.
