  1. The Tyrells run a prosperous territory. It's easy to have loyalty during the time of plenty.

    Is death good? Why fight the Others?

    Give them back the land. Westeros belonged to them in the past. They want it back. So pack up and give it back. That's the way of peace. It doesn't even make sense to stay when its winter.

    Is x character a psychopath?

    Oh I think Arya skipped the identity crisis and went straight to psycho.

    Thumbs up. I like that.

    Poll: Is Quentyn, Called 'Frog', Still Alive?

    We got his death from his own pov. He's toast. The plot device of keeping somebody alive after they seemingly died will get old if it's not already old already. It's so old that it's fossilized to me. Much better and original plot is someone believed to be alive has actually been dead a long time.

    What villains would you have wanted to see a POV from?

    How about a Gendry. He pines for Arya and decides to duel Jon for her affections. Bastard vs. Bastard. It would make for a tragically lovely romantic triangle for the three of them.

    Does Nettles prove the Valaryians weren’t exceptional?

    Right. That makes sense. The life of a babe is innocent and thus pure. Like sacrificing a virgin to the altar of the gods. After all, what god worth its salt would accept the leavings of another man. An untouched, maiden, now she has great value to the gods. Giving her life to honor the gods is really honoring the gods. For these reasons, I believe the naked woman in the HOTU prophecy is the future of Sansa Stark.

    How should Robb have gotten his sisters back?

    Right, because Jaime is practically the only son of the richest man in Westeros. His value is high.

    What villains would you have wanted to see a POV from?

    The Tattered Prince and what he wants to do with Pentos. I get why he would hold a grudge but come on, it's been decades. He's done well for himself. Why attack and sack the city? It's stupidity.

    You might want the POV from a common folk.

    There must Always be a Stark at Winterfell

    Some readers assume it means the Starks guard the realms of the humans against the Others. I think it's the other way around. The Starks are the stewards who look after the land until their masters, the Others, can come back.

    There must Always be a Stark at Winterfell

    The Starks are the ice faction in this story. I have a feeling that family is somehow affiliated with and responsible for the Others. Like the Starks sold their souls to the Others in return for the warg powers. We saw with Greywind how useful that power can be in battle. It could have tipped the balance to the Starks during their war of conquest for the north. The Boltons loved to skin the Starks because they saw them not as men but as animals. The Boltons are the Huntsmen. The Huntsman is the wolf's enemy. The Huntsmen skinned the Starks because their warg powers were known. The Boltons treated the Starks like animals. The Starks gave up their sons to the Others and in return they got the help they needed to conquer the north. The Others see the Starks as their stewards. The stewards take care of the land until the master can return. There must always be a Stark in Winterfell because they are the stewards for the Others.

    Why did Jorah push Dany to go to Asshai?

    Mud isn't exactly sanitary. BUT, Drogo chose to ignore instructions and removed the packing. We may never know. But the important fact here is Mirri Maaz Duur's confession. She claimed responsibility for the crime.

    Why did Jorah push Dany to go to Asshai?

    I don't think he's alive. For the hell of it, I suppose we could entertain one of the Dothraki was really loyal to Drogo and saved his son from the other khals. He or she spirited the baby away thinking his mother could never protect him from the other khals.
