    Coal in ASOIF

    The wightified northern army marching on the trident will be charcoaled by the time Drogon is done with them. They will be turned to steaming lumps of coal.

    The danger of Gerold Dayne

    Doran is a cautious man. He's risk averse. To whom is Darkstar dangerous to? Doran?

    Characters who deserve to DIE

    Euron, the Slavers, Vargo, Ramsay, Gregor get off on inflicting pain and suffering on others. They are the few examples of evil in the text. The others like Roose, Walder, Tywin, Stannis, and Mance did very bad things but I wouldn't call them evil. They had good reasons for most of the bad things they did.

    Why was Viserys mad and his "Sister" and "Brother" wasn't?

    The Starks cannot claim the moral high ground when compared to the Targaryens. Those northern sheep heads supported and practiced the lord's right to the first night. Read F&B and they give the impression of being more sexists than the south. Bran's dream showed an ancestor cutting a man's throat to nourish that bloody tree in Winterfell. Sansa does not hold the moral high ground on Viserys. Viserys, for all of his faults, took care of his little sister. We can all agree on the hardship those two siblings had to face. Viserys was a bad brother in many respects but he took care of his little sister. Sansa takes care of Sansa. I would not at all be surprised if she murders little Robin Arryn to impress Hardyng. Arya is going around murdering people who have nothing to do with her family's troubles all with the goal of getting even. Their half-brother is at the wall causing problems because he wants to avenge the Starks. Robb is an oathbreaker. Lyanna broke her engagement, which can be seen as a form of oathbreaking. Late uncle Brandon is no better than Robert when it comes to their treatment of women and children. I'm not bashing on the Starks. Not this evening. I'm just saying they do not hold the moral high ground on the Targaryens.

    Why was Viserys mad and his "Sister" and "Brother" wasn't?

    That's a point that Martin was careful to make. Members within a given family are not homogeneous outside the fact that they're all human. Most of the Targaryens are average in terms of temperament. Which is good considering they had the power to get what they wanted. The representative of the family that we know best, Daenerys Targaryen, is a very special person blessed with courage, compassion, intelligence, beauty, and charisma. For sure she is not representative of every member of the family and she is rather exceptional. But, the rest of the Targaryens were quite the average lot. No better, no worse than the rest of the nobility.

    Daenerys Targaryen is most like Prince Daemon Targaryen 

    Daemon is no more than a dragon riding Targaryen. She's much more than a Targaryen. Dany is the Maiden Made of Light. It's her destiny to build a new dawn empire at the end of the Long Night.

    Faegon will get grey plague from jon connigton and die

    Jon Connington is contagious and greyscale will spread. It will be blamed on the Golden Company ofcourse. Shireen will spread greyscale in the north and it will be blamed on the Wildlings. Aegon may have enough Targaryen in him to resist the disease. He's not getting sick. He will marry Daenerys and become her consort.

    most tragic character

    Sigella. You know where his pickled body is headed to? To the one person who might be able to bring him back to life. If she could bring back an extinct species an old man who died will be possible. He's still flesh and that is an easy miracle compared to giving life back to stone eggs.

    Will Jon be Dany's heir

    Not this time around. Rhaegar and his sons, daughters, grandchildren have all been disinherited. The line of succession does not go back to his line.
  10. The Pink Letter


    No, I think Aerys already disinherited Rhaegar before the battle at the trident. But whatever the timeline might be doesn't matter. Rhaegar was disinherited and the line of succession starts with King Viserys, the third of His Name and His heir, the Princess Daenerys, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Queen of Meereen, and future ruler of Westeros.

    Will Jon be Dany's heir

    Rhaegar's children lost their place in line when Queen Rhaella crowned Viserys. Add to this the fact that Robert won the rebellion. Rhaegar's heirs do not retroactively get their place in line back. Daenerys as the heir to Viserys is ahead in the line of succession. But really, who gets the throne will be determined by strength. The Lannisters are not going to step aside. And I would be very disappointed if my favorite character, Daenerys, chooses to step aside for Jon. And all this is only relevant on the unlikely event that Jon is the son of Rhaegar. There are many problems with this line of thought. It is more the desire of Jon's supporters rather than evidence in the text that is driving this.

    What if freys pro targayen in robert rebellion

    It would have helped. Something would have to be done about the Tullys so they can't attack from the south though.
  13. An idiot she may be but she outplayed Ned, Sansa, and Robert.

    Is Jon to blame? #NotMyKing

    The Watch has independence on matters confined to its internal affairs. But the Watch does not have the authority to make decisions that have realm wide impact. Lord Commander Mormont would need to get Robert's permission before he can decide to let in thousands of wildlings and set them loose in the realm. The Watch also does not have the right to set Mance Rayder loose in the north to steal the wife of a nobleman.

    A dark horse for the perfumed seneschal

    I don't think so. Jon Snow is dead. It would be rather disappointing if he came back to life. And even if he does and if he is the seneschal the only thing he can look forward to is a date with stake and fire. That is right. He will burn at the stake for treason.
