  1. I vote for the faceless men catching up to Arya and giving her the gift of death. Permanent shut-eye is not going to happen though because her wolf is still alive. She will get to live a wolf's life.
  2. Robb Stark was a rebellious lord. Future history books will paint him as a divisive figure.
  3. Bran's chapter began this long and still unfinished story. You might say the first Bran chapter is the foreshadowing of very dark events to come. Very dark in general but also predicted a very dark future for the point of view character, Bran Stark. Brother Gared, a seasoned man of the Nights Watch, was caught and charged with the crime of desertion. Desertion, we are explicitly told, is a crime punishable by death. We know from the Prologue what had happened to Gared just as we know the ranger had important information to convey. Gared was obviously traumatized and suffered from PTSD. Ned Stark listens to the man briefly and carries out the execution. Bran Stark, a young boy, was brought along to witness the execution. Furthermore, Bran Stark was told not to look away. The Starks find the wolves on their way home from the horrific scene of the execution. The Usurper's party arrives in Winterfell and Ned Stark accepts the offer to become Hand of the King. Bran Stark accidentally sees Jaime Lannister and his sister, Cersei Lannister, making love in one of Winterfell's ruined towers. Jaime, to keep Bran from revealing his secret, pushed Bran from the window. The fall breaks Bran's body. All of the boy's dreams of becoming a knight went out. Bran has several dreams. He dreamt of his bastard brother, Jon Snow, growing cold and experiencing the rigor mortis of death. He also sees across the Narrow Sea and Essos to Asshai, where he sees dragons. Lastly, he sees into the lands of always winter, almost literally he saw the Heart of Winter. Bran's dog saves him from the assassin. He comes out of his comma and wakes up to his ruined body. Soon the children of House Reed comes to visit Winterfell. Robb declares rebellion and leaves for the South. Bran the Broken becomes the acting lord of Winterfell. Theon and the Ironborn take the castle from Lord Bran. The cripple and his friends are forced to hide and then leave from the burning castle. This is another very traumatic episode for Lord Bran. Bran and Co. crossed the Wall and passed through the Nightfort and the Bastard Gate. They meet Bloodraven, the Targaryen bastard known as Brynden Rivers. Brynden teaches Bran and shows him how to use his abilities. Bran saw through the eyes of the Winterfell tree. He saw the brutality of his ancestors. His mind travelled back in time, reading the tree's memories and sees his ancestors making human sacrifices to the trees. In the real world, he sees bones scattered all around the vast cave. Bran begins to enjoy the dark. He begins to love intruding on the mind of his simpleton servant. He begins to engage in voyeurism and spies on his potential love interest, Meera Reed. Brynden tells him the strongest trees grow in the dark. Those are not normal trees because no tree can survive without the sun. Where do the trees get their energy? Human blood. What does Bran have that make him a valuable asset against the White Walkers? His Skinchanging powers. Brynden has a plan to use Bran to wrest control of the wights away from the White Walkers. It is unfortunate, I think, because Bran Stark will betray Brynden and use his powers to avenge the Starks. He will learn that it was Jaime Lannister who pushed him from the window and took away all of his dreams. There will be no peace with the Lannisters. Everything Bran has been exposed to by his elders are slowly leading Bran to become evil. Bran is not just physically broken. He is also morally broken. From the major screwup that was Gared's execution, to his crippling, and finally to the deaths of his siblings. All of those will not lead even a good person to become better. Bran will see the death of his bastard brother at the wall. He will see the deaths of Sansa and Arya. Bran will betray Brynden and use his Skinchanging powers to drive the wights to indiscriminately attack Westeros. Bran will become the Lord of Darkness and his bloody reign will last the duration of the Long Night. Bran Stark will have to die before the Long Night can end and for Spring to return.
  4. Sean. The only difference here are the story characters. Jon Snow was a man whose decisions will cause more deaths and sorrow to the kingdom compared to what Raff and Tickler has ever done. Or could have done. It was more important for Jon to die because he has done more harm and would have continued to do more harm if Bowen had not killed him. Robb's war caused more suffering and sorrow than anything Raff and Tickler has done. So Darth cheering for the deaths of Jon and Robb is no different from you having no sympathy for Dareon and cheering the deaths of the men you don't like.
  5. The order of the silent sisters are not in the business of treating the mentally disturbed but the calm may help reduce Arya's urge to kill.
  6. Pick any of the slaving families in Meereen. Or Astapor or Yunkai. What they do to slaves is worse than anything in Westeros with the exception of the Others controlling the wights. Those who use mind control to force the dead or the living to do their bidding are the worst of humanity but they are not limited to a single family. Varamyr and Bran are the main offenders among the humans.
  7. Fifteen years of servitude for Dareon's murder. The same amount of time for the Insurance man. That's thirty years in total. Reduce time for good behavior, to 12 years for each crime for a total of 24.
  8. The north may care but the people in the other parts of the kingdom would not care. They know the Starks for rebels.
  9. The Starks lost to the Lannisters. Eddard gave a public confession to treason. Jon is now a known traitor in the north. Sansa is implicated in the death of Joffrey. I don't think many people are offended when Tywin took and melted Ice. The Starks are considered rebels and traitors.
  10. I will be using it to support my opinion during my next talk about Arya's mental state.
  11. Craving Peaches, I believe I understand what you are insinuating at. I saw where you have been throwing my name around in other threads. It is soft slander. If you believe there is fraud going on then by all means report it to the Site Administrators. Know this, I believe there is fraud from the Anti-Daenerys, Pro-Stark fans and would like to report the following accounts (Craving Peaches, KingEuronGreyjoy, The Last Wolf, Corvo the Crow, and Maegor Targaryen I ) be checked for duplicates. Craving Peaches, I say this in the interest of goodwill and want to avoid confrontation. Please accept it as such. Trying to intimidate people who do not agree with you has been tried many times. Just about all of the personal attacks are coming from the Anti-Daenerys, Pro-Stark fans. It doesn't work. I am not attacking you. I do have a right to speak on my behalf and defend myself after you have thrown my name around. Feel free to have my user account inspected. I only ask the Administrators to check yours and those listed as well. It is only fair. I believe you would consider that also fair. Put this question to rest so we can move on with interesting discussions. @Ran
  12. Arya will set it off on purpose. There's no oops. It's a stony faced Arya watching the city burn shortly after she ignites the Wildfire. Jon's reaction will not be the expected shock as he will be beyond such emotions after the Others raise him from death.
  13. I am here. Is it more criticism of the Starks you're looking for? I am working on a criticism of Bran. I will do my best to post on the subject in the following few days. You might disagree. I am basing my anticipation based on what I have seen of your opinions here. We will debate in a few days.
  14. Cat went madder than Aerys in her minutes. Aerys was driven to madness by his experiences in Duskendale. Look if Aerys can go mad because of stress so can the Tullys. It means both have the weakness in their families. Arya and the other Stark kids have this gene. The trauma of witnessing Ned's head dropping in the bucket drove Arya to insanity.
