    Littlefinger's Plans

    Robert and Jon Arryn are the ones responsible for putting Westeros in debt. Petyr Baelish could not have done something like that and gotten away with it. Robert was in a coma and might miss it but Jon Arryn would have sniffed it out quickly. Stannis and Renly surely would have. It is more the case of Petyr Baelish being an enabler for Robert's excessive spending.

    The role of forgiveness

    Selfish is selfish. Time period is not what determine that. It wasn't the disobedience but the intent behind it that proves her selfish trait.

    What if Robb knew Arya Escaped KL?

    Specifically, what if the Brotherhood would have sent Robb a raven from Acorn Hill demanding their ransom for Arya? The Starks would have paid the ransom if they could afford it. The rebellion was costing them plenty. Catelyn would squeeze House Frey for the ransom money. Are you asking if Robb would have treated Jaime any differently? He would not.

    Littlefinger's Plans

    We can understand all we need of Petyr Baelish after reading about his humiliating defeat. Imagine the humiliation. Proud young man honestly loved Catelyn. He fought a superior fighter and lost. His love had to beg for his life. Hoster Tully rejected his offer. Can you see why he would want to remove those families from power? It's obvious.

    The role of forgiveness

    I don't agree with your interpretation. Seems to me, you're spinning what took place into what you want to see. Which is fine. It's your right. Mine own interpretation is not the same as yours. Mine is more direct based on that chapter.

    What will happen to Stannis in next book

    All men die. He is either already dead or will in Winds. He might get a second coming if the Others revive him but he ain't gonna be the same.

    You sound like you've not read the books. Did she not do just that when she took Joffrey's side over Arya and it ended up with her wolf getting the knife? That is exactly what happened.

    Help me create Valyrian names for my story.

    The names in ASOIAF are inconsistent within the families because they are in real life. It is a wonder the Targaryens were able to hang on to their custom. You might want to add variety. Don't just use -on and -rys at the endings. Use more than the typical two syllable form. Maybe decide on the first names of your main families and then build names that sound good with the last names.

    Toxic aristocratic values

    The situation was much, much worse before the arrival of the Targaryens. Argillac, Harren, and the "great" houses were constantly in conflict. The commoners had little break from warfare. A strong, central ruler helped calm Westeros to allow for longer periods between conflicts. The social values have yet to catch up but the authority of the iron throne gave rise to progressive ideas such as prohibiting the lord's right to the first night.

    Which Targaryen ploy would work?

    #1 Could work. King Viserys, Third of His Name, will have the support of Khal Drogo and his Dothraki. The Martells will fall in line, as well as the Tyrells and the Greyjoys. #2 Would work very nicely. Queen Daenerys will have no need of assistance from within Westeros to take the throne in this scenario. Ironically, this scenario will guarantee her the support of at least half or more of the lords of Westeros. The dragons will prove her identity as the Targaryen. Just about all the Starks, Tully, Arryn, and Baratheon bannermen will flock to the dragon banner. It's a chance for a promotion after all. #3 Is a longest of the longshot. This is not enough support for Aegon to take the iron throne and keep it. He will win a few surprise victories but he doesn't have enough on his side. Doran will need to die for this risky plot to proceed. Queen Daenerys will have no need of the Dornish army.

    The role of forgiveness

    It's you who doesn't understand Sansa. She is selfish enough to forget about her family if it will bring her a high lord for a husband. And about Arya. She is sick in the head and being around her siblings is not gonna make her well. They're not exactly well themselves in that department.

    Does Visenya Deserve More Criticism?

    Every person in a decision-making capacity can be opened to criticism. Visenya did what was needed to protect the Targaryens from the demands of the religious fanatics.

    The role of forgiveness

    Sansa will trade away getting even for Ned if Petyr Baelish offers her a handsome groom in Ser Harrys. That's the only forgiveness you'll get from a Stark. Arya is too far deranged in the head to forgive.

    The role of forgiveness

    Bowen will die a heroic death. I think he knew that going in. He was dedicated to his duties and loyal to a fault. Jon put him in a bad position after the shield hall meeting. Bowen will be a hero to the NW but an enemy to the wildlings. Arya's madness will make it hard for her to forget revenge. Each person has a role and hers is to be the crazed killer.
