  1. You’re forgetting that Jaime is changing, arguably for the better. Cersei is getting worse. She’s the Mad Queen who sees treachery and enemies at every turn, and she’s going to have the power to unleash hell upon the Seven Kingdoms. And even if she doesn’t directly do the damage, her chaos will allow others to do it. Meanwhile, Jaime has gone from throwing a kid off a tower for Cersei to burning her letters and leaving her to her fate.
  2. If you’re fishing for a scenario where the brothers reconcile, you’re mistaken. Neither was going to back down and give up, they’d both gone too far. One of them was marked for death no matter what.
  3. Maybe it’s a version of Ynys Mon which wasn’t destroyed by the Romans…
  4. The Rhaegar-Lyanna storyline is definitely one of my least favourite parts of the series. Not because of what they do, but how it’s framed. I hate the idea that GRRM will make it so all the pain and destruction they caused will have been what ultimately saves the world. Doing terrible things to justify the end result is not a message that I find very useful or meaningful in our age.
  5. I feel like the people of Skagos are going to be misunderstood. They’ll definitely be big people who ride around on unicorns, but their supposed savagery will be Andal prejudice more than anything.
  6. Didn’t the Red Kraken send someone to the Maiden’s Day Ball?
  7. This makes me wonder how many of the common peasantry in the southern kingdoms are old gods worshippers. We hear of Northmen settling in the Riverlands and helping revive worship south of the Neck, but could a thousand Northern husbands really make that much of a difference?
  8. Here’s two more: Stannis and Aegon III Younger sons who are emotionally traumatized from watching their mothers die in front of them. They both also blame themselves for their younger brothers’ deaths (justifiably or not). Stannis and Aegon also have zero interest in martial prowess or art or playing the courtly games. They’re both brooding loners with only a few close confidants (Davos, Gaemon, Viserys). Neither of them is much interested in sex (though Aegon got the better end of that deal). They talk of bringing justice to the realm, oozing contempt for the nobles who stand in their way every time. Robert and Aegon IV Both of them are promising young men who turn into fat wastrels that tear the kingdom apart upon their deaths because of the legitimacy (or illegitimacy) of their heirs. They welp bastards on a variety of women, including their own cousins.
  9. I’m aware of that. I’m an atheist too. I was just trying to create a specific hypothetical scenario. I didn’t mean for it to get out of hand.
  10. I asked a specific question in the title. I have set up the parameters. If this hypothetical question is not to your liking, you are welcome to ignore it.
  11. Let’s assume that agnosticism and atheism are not options.
  12. Let’s say that you are transported to Planetos now. We still don’t know which of the gods are real, which ones aren’t. You have to choose a faith to join. Which one do you pick?
  13. Wouldn’t that set House Stark up for trouble down the line? You’d have an offshoot house of blood relatives under the thumb of an ambitious and powerful vassal house that used to be kings. Someone at some point is going to cause trouble for the main branch of House Stark.
  14. Who’s an edgy boy! You are! Yes you are! What an edgy boy you are!!!!
  15. Moat Cailin is a paradox to me. Its origin story is so vague, and what little we do know makes little sense if you give it some thought.
  16. If the Starks take back Winterfell and the houses join their banners to theirs, I’d say that they would rule the North again. And by that point, House Bolton would have to be in complete disarray.
  17. There’s also the fact that Jon Umber brought all his sons and brothers to the army with Robb, but now he’s apparently got more sons according to Jon Snow. Did they somehow survive the Red Wedding and make it back home?
  18. There’s probably going to be a surprise Bolton marriage to one of the other houses, like one of Roose’s aunts married into House Ryswell or something, and so it’ll go to one of Barbrey’s brothers.
