    Poll: What would you have preferred?

    Yup, I definitely agree with this BTW. GRRM made the right choice creating the 'Ice Others' as we know them today.

    Poll: What would you have preferred?

    Let's just say that - instead of the Others that we know presently - George RR Martin decided to start the series with the 'Fire Others' murdering Waymar Royce. The religious fanatic 'helping' everybody else would be of the Ice Element; Melisandre would be cold to the touch. For at least 5 books, the 'Fire Others' is the ultimate, looming threat. Assume that the story line everywhere else is completely the same. Would you like the story more? Or would you think that the 'Fire Others' are gay? Heck, Would the story -incredibly- still be the same to you? I am looking forward to reading some interesting posts.
  3. How do you explained its relationship with the 5 Forts of Yi Ti? Some of you claimed that Men could not have been the builders of the Wall even with the help of the Children and Giants. Yet, it was likely Men (and Dragons?) who built the 5 super/mega Forts stretching across a gigantic distance. Keep in mind that there is no indication of the 'Fire Others' building the 5 Forts. In fact, even if they do exist, the 5 Forts were built to separate Men from the cold /freezing Grey Waste. If there are 'Fire Others', they would most likely be living in Asshai right now, and the 5 Forts are useless there. What this means is that the 'Ice Others' - like the ones in Westeros - are likely the main threats in the Grey Waste. Are you going to claim that these 'Ice Others' built the 5 Forts out of fire magic?

    For those who thought that the Others built the Wall

    I would bet money the Shade of the Evening Tree does this...

    Very interesting theories! I have a question. We know there is a Weirwood gate of extremely deep magic at the foundations of The Wall. Based on the way the core oaths were sworn to this Gate, it seems most likely that the Children, Men, and Giants built The Wall to protect all Southern warm life from the Others. This makes it likely that the 5 Forts were also built by Essosi Humans and their own allies. However, since the Evening Trees are 'opposites' of Weirwoods, the trees would have to be on top of the 5 Forts. But how would a wooden gate on top of the 5 Forts be useful in protecting Humans against whatever 'Others' there are in the cold Grey Waste? Keep in mind that the 5 Forts are almost completely (though in an opposite fashion) analogous to the Walls in many ways: the axis that they were built along (East-West; North-South) ultimately ended in oceans. However, the Western side of the Wall ended in cliffs and mountains and the Eastern side hit a body of water; on the other hand, the North-Western side of the 5 Forts ended in a body of water (Bleeding Sea) while the South-Eastern side ended in Mountains.

    "Moral ambiguity" is overrated and overestimated

    I think you guys are talking past each other, but this is one of the best quotes on this thread. True empathy (true by its definition) does coexist (without contradiction) with objective 'good' and 'evil'. And so empathy does exist with- again, without contradiction- justified and reasonable punishments and accountability.
