    Predict her future: Penny

    Penny is not destined to be Tyrion's + 1. She's the lifeline to redemption but Tyrion will follow his heart and burn that rope. He can't get Tysha and Jaime out of his mind. They will pick and fight on different sides. One of them will die. Perhaps Penny's role is to mourn Tyrion's death. Somebody has to.

    House of the Undying. The Three Mounts

    I like it.

    Girlfriend, mistress, paramour and concubine

    Their word usage is more literal. Modern english in comparison is more subtle. A friend in the Common Tongue is literally a friend. A girl friend is a female friend. Which is going to be rare because friendship between a man and a woman brings on a cloud of suspicion.

    Valyrians of Westeros

    Oh there are countless numbers of people in Westeros who have Targaryen ancestry. But the traits referred to as the "blood of the dragon" are recessive and would not show themselves in these people. It would be impossible to trace the lineage of these people without access to a modern day laboratory. The amount of Targaryen in these people is a drop compared to the whole bucket.

    Will Jon be Dany's heir

    Heir to what? The Baratheons have taken Westeros. If we are to talk succession then the so called Baratheons, Myrcella and Tommen are the line of succession. Stannis failed to convince so he too lost his right. Either the people didn't believe him or they don't care enough to lose their lives to support his claim. Wars can be won away from the battlefield and that is what the Lannisters did. The Targaryens and the Baratheons have no existing lines of succession because they lost the kingdom. Worse, the kingdom no longer exists. The wildlings have broken the kingdom. The ironborn are trying to gain independence. Dany's empire is in Essos. Jon has absolutely zero rights to inherit what she built. So what if Dany somehow managed to add Westeros to her empire. That means she took it by conquest. So the old line of succession will no longer apply because she put the land back together. It means she built a new realm. She can pick Missandei to inherit if she wanted to.

    Whose nameday falls first - Jon's or Robb's?

    Jon is older.

    Do you think Doran Martell actually has a master plan?

    Oh he has a plan. Whether it's succeed or not is what we will find out in the next volume. He is trying to create the first ruling queen in Westeros. He wants Arrianne on that throne. Aegon is just his ticket to change the laws and apply Dornish law across the realm. Which allows for female rule.

    Does GRRM hate heroism or avoid it? (Jon and Quentyn comparison)

    I agree with the underlined.

    Does GRRM hate heroism or avoid it? (Jon and Quentyn comparison)

    They both chose badly. Jon chose to serve the lesser good instead of the greater good. Going after his sister when weighed against the safety of the wall was a foolish decision. This is an example of love causing destruction. Easily one of the worst decisions in all of the novels. Quentyn wanted to impress his father so badly and that led him to steal the dragons. Both these young men have much in common with Theon and Ramsay. They want to belong to a family. They are willing to betray their duties and oaths for their loved ones. And they both got what they deserved. One got slow cooked and the other got stabbed by his own men. Both should be dead and they should remain dead. Preston Jacobs at youtube thinks Quentyn is still alive. Most of the book readers think Jon is alive. Me, I prefer them both dead. It gives closure to their story lines. I won't label Mr. Martin but his story is rather bleak. I agree with some of the arguments in that article. Theon had a hero's moment even though most of his life has been everything except heroic. Jaime is a complete shithead in life but he had one hero's moment when he saved the city from wildfire. Though I might argue that he should have saved his king too. Bowen Marsh is a hero because he stopped Jon from leading a destructive wildling raid against Roose Bolton. I have trouble seeing Samwell and Sansa as heroes. Enduring is not enough to make one a hero. They have to do something to benefit other people to be considered heroic.

    How do you make a Truce Pact with Lannisters and Starks/Tully?

    Do you also believe the murder of Rhaegar's wife and children are war crimes of the same level of offense? Elia, Rhaenys, and Aegon were more innocent than the armsmen who died at the Red Wedding.

    That's true. Although the same thing can apply to making deals with the Starks. They are now known breaker of oaths. Walder's publicity machine needs to get moving to smear Robb's reputation. What Jon did at the wall will grease those wheels and help the smear campaign. Lady Stoneheart and Nymeria are not making the Stark name popular in the River lands.

    How do you make a Truce Pact with Lannisters and Starks/Tully?

    Oh my. A quote from one of my favorite films. Angel Eyes Thanks. Those are different circumstances. Pendragon betrayed Cornwall because he lusted after the duke's wife. Walder Frey and Roose Bolton were ordered by their king to remove a threat to the realm. It was legal. It is a breakage of custom but not of the law.

    “It should have been you.”

    I can think of no excuse for her behavior. The TV show purposely left this out to clean up her character. They cleaned up Sansa, Arya, and Jon. Jon most of all. Benioff, Weiss, and Cogman already had an end game in mind in season 1. They wanted to clean up the Starks to make them less controversial for the TV audience.

    Dragons and one lion

    Tyrion is already interfering with the dragons. He tricked Griff into a rash decision. All this interfering will get him charbecued in the end.
