    The Tyrion of Fevre Dream (spoiler)

    Billy is the bad man serving a bad cause. He's more evil than Bronn though. Abner is the mixture of Jorah, Barristan, Davos, and Varys. Maybe since FD was written first they are bits of Abner.

    Danaerys surviving?

    Book Jon is very far from sane. His behavior in the books is one of the most destructive out of any character. Book Daenerys has been very reasonable. Consider the difficult issue of ending slavery in Essos. That can't be done without a lot of bloodshed because the slavers are not interested in morality but instead are interested in keeping power and status. The slavers' resistance to positive change is causing misery. I would never trust Jon with a dragon. Look at the damage he did at the wall with the little power that he had. He took an institution that has stood for thousands of years and destroyed it to get his sister from her husband. Jon would use a dragon to punish those families who have wronged the Starks. That is unethical and will only cause more damage.

    Dany and child murder

    This again. I have to say it makes for interesting talk. Start by tackling the executions of Rickard Stark and Brandon Stark. Those who believe they were conspiring to remove the Targaryens from power do say those deaths were deserved because they were guilty of treason. With Lyanna being the glue to hold the houses together when they finally declare war on the Targaryen. Aerys was justified in executing the Starks. He was justified in calling for the heads minus the bodies of Robert and Eddard. I believe this because I think the chances are quite reasonably high that the Starks were part of the plan to overthrow the Targaryens. I know more than a few people here will still speak up for the Starks even if they are guilty of treason. I know I would still support the Targaryens even if the Starks are innocent. It is determined by which side you like.

    Horns

    Expect the unexpected if the horn makers are playing a bad joke. The prettiest horn is probably a dud. It's the homely one that has the real power.

    Horns

    Could be a trap to play a bad joke on dragon thieves.

    Characteristics of a good ruler

    Yes they do. Ah the advantages of youth. They both could do with more experience and they are getting it. Petyr Baelish and Tyrion Lannister are smart men but neither would make for a fine ruler. It's the right combination of abilities and the experience.

    Why weren’t Robert’s brothers princes

    Fascinating question on Bran's intended title. I say intended because it was only intent and hope that gave him that temporary title of prince. It's the north harking back to the glory days when they ruled themselves. Bottom line, it's just a title. Stannis and Renly functioned like princes. Behind Robert's heirs they are but still they behaved like princes.

    Why weren’t Robert’s brothers princes

    Hoare has the right of it. I believe it. They were not the sons of a king whereas Prince Viserys, Prince Rhaegar, and Princess Daenerys are the children of a king. There is a difference. Stannis and Renly were not royal-born.

    Conjectures on Robert Arryn’s Paternity

    I have to agree. His seed is weak and that is why robin is unhealthy.

    Stannis wrote the Pink Letter. Clydas changed it

    Would Stannis, knowing how serious the threat of the others are, do this to lure the watch away from the wall? I'm thinking he won't. His sense of responsibility is not that far corrupted by ambition.

    Stannis wrote the Pink Letter. Clydas changed it

    Clydas doesn't have the balls to edit that letter.

    Prediction: Jon will become a direwolf

    Bran might join that pack. His dog is still kicking in the books.

    Is death good? Why fight the Others?

    I actually disagree with you. Jon's killing of Janos Slynt was passionate and brought on by his dislike for the man who he sort of blamed for the death of his father. So ice is not the good side here. Daenerys is liberating an enslaved people and that is a very positive thing to do. She has shown more mercy. Take the example of Jorah Mormont, who was partially responsible for the death of Rhaego when he brought her inside Mirri's tent. She banished Jorah but did him no harm. There aren't many people in this story who would show that kind of mercy. Daenerys is also willing to win the people of Meereen over despite how she feels about them as a people. Jon didn't even try to win his people, the Night Watch, to his cause. Ice is the one destroying Westeros not fire.

    Fate of Olyvar Frey

    Let's not overestimate his devotion to Robb Stark. He's just a naive boy who doesn't see the big picture. The concept of a sacred oath is beyond his grasp right now when balanced against the man who was his mentor. The young and the immature overvalue friendship and fail to realize the importance of rules, the law, oaths, and promises. He will realize how right Walder Frey was when he matures. What Robb did to his family was not a minor offense. The red wedding served a dual purpose. To help the Freys integrate themselves back into the good part of Westeros society and protect their vast wealth from any punitive damages for their part in the illegal rebellion. The red wedding and the dismay of the north is a small price to pay.

    Did the Red Comet _____ ?

    We need to look at the timing. Did the candles start glowing right after Drogo's death? That would make them one of the possible lightbringers.
