    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.
  2. 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.
  4. 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.

    Is Young Griffs invasion filler?

    Viserys was already crowned and named King Viserys III. And I have to disagree with those who believe Westeros will not be receptive to a Targaryen restoration. Most will want the dragons back after what the Starks and the Lannisters did to Westeros. Westeros is worse off now than it ever was during the 300 years of Targaryen rule. The Baratheons proved themselves unable to hold the kingdom together. Robert failed to keep the Starks and the Lannisters under control.

    Is Young Griffs invasion filler?

    The books will have two land battles. The Battle of Fire in Slaver's Bay and the Battle of Ice in the north. The third battle will be naval. Asha's fleet takes on Euron's in the biggest sea battle since Blackwater. It will be big. Aurane, the Redwynes, and the Manderly fleet might get involved. George is not going to fill the last two books with battles.

    Skinchanging a dead body

    Should be easy. It's not like they can refuse. What make the WW special is their ability to simultaneously control and coordinate a mass of dead corpses. Maybe the skin change ability originated from them and that's why they do it better. There are ethics involved but the WW follow different rules. A weak warg like the ones mentioned should be able to do this to a dead body but perhaps not enough to make that body dance gracefully. The control is not going to have precision.

    The worst Kingsguard members? Jaime Lannister and Criston Cole

    Percentage Poll on various theories

    75% I am hoping for this to happen. 75% 75% 50% Asshai is too interesting to leave out. 100% 75% 50% 100% 75% Or he could just be dead 25%

    Did he not qualify this with "but I have the right to change my mind"? It is always possible and can never be ruled out.

    Robert's Kingsguard

    Very good input. Robert's reign started after a rebellion. He, therefore, had a lot of political mending to do. Jon Arryn was a politician more than he was a capable administrator. Those positions were given to buy political goodwill, ex. Jaime. You might also look at Robert's character. He's a man's man kind of guy and hiding behind bodyguards was not his style. He didn't give much thought to personal protection. Any king with a modicum of caution would have sent Jaime as far away from him as possible.

    stannis and the valonqar

    Jaime doesn't have any problem killing people but he will not be able to kill his sister-lover. I do not see his plot heading in that direction. Tyrion is the one who will stop Cersei.

    About eastern Essos(my theory)

    The Lion Of the Night is either Jon Snow or Bran Stark in a past life. The Bloodstone Emperor was a descendant of them. One of these men had children with The Maiden Made Of Light (Daenerys Targaryen in a past life) and started the line of the birthstone rulers of the empire of the dawn. This is naturally inspired by the bible. Long-lived people (Methuselah, Sarah) and siblings (Cain, Abel) then followed by the wrath of God (Cain's punishment and curse on all of his descendants).

    Does Asoiaf Have a True Protagonist? *SPOILERS*

    Jon is not going to a protagonist. He already betrayed the Nightswatch and broke his oaths. The author just might increase the drama and the tragedy to push Jon over the edge to the Others. Jon got his cock bitten off by prophecy. He committed an injustice and let Mance Rayder go unpunished for his crimes so he can send him to get Arya. Or who he believed is Arya. He broke his vows and interfered with the game of thrones. Jon would have made an even bigger mess if not for Bowen Marsh and the loyal men of the watch stopping him. Jon is not a protagonist. He was a very conflicted man who finally crossed the line and got what was coming to him from Bowen Marsh.
