  1. @Aashi It is more than intriguing. It is the one of the main points of "A Song of Ice and Fire." Daenerys is Azor Ahai. Jon Snow is not. I think that bothers the Dany haters as well as the Stark fans. It pleases me though. I like Daenerys.
  2. He already has. Revenge is never a good motive for governing. Another way to explain this is it is never good to govern when the desire is revenge. The same criticism applies to Jon. Just look what revenge led Jon to do. He murdered Janos. That act was the beginning of the downwards slide to disaster for Jon and the watch. Doran is doing the same thing but taking it slowly. Sending an inadequate son to do a man's job and making big offers they cannot back up was dumb. The son was a weak boy who went as far as trying to steal dragons. Jon and Quentin deserved what they received and got their comeuppance. Doran's day is coming.
  3. It was going to lead to war. The Targaryens have the right to protect their rule. Rickard Stark and his allies were going to challenge the Targaryen monarch. Their reasons were not benevolent. Rather those reasons were selfish and only served themselves. Aerys had his issues but Westeros was peaceful and prosperous. There was no need to upset the hierarchy. I am glad for the plot as much as I despise the Starks and the Baratheons. Rickard's treason and the aftermath brought Queen Rhaella and Prince Viserys to Dragonstone where the future Azor Ahai was born. Dany needed to be born and raised in Essos to fulfill her prophecy and become Azor Ahai.
  4. George R. R. Martin has carefully kept the western seas a secret. There is something on that side of the planet that Daenerys needs to see. It could be an island where the survivors of the winter can migrate to. I don't know exactly but it is important enough for Qaithe to expend her energies to communicate. Qaithe waited all this time for Daenerys and I don't think it is without cost to Qaithe herself. The message is so important that the woman kept herself alive to deliver to Daenerys. The Targaryen fleet will arrive somewhere on the west coast of Westeros. The biggest obstacle to the throne are the Lannisters and have to be dealt with first.
  5. What are your personal favorite theories? The Targaryens have their roots in the rulers of The Great Empire Of The Dawn. Targaryen is only their Valyrian name. The Maiden-Made-Of-Light and the Lion Of Night are the Sun and the Moon. Daenerys Targaryen and Bran Stark. Bran the Lion will once again send his wights to menace the land as he did in the past. Drogo is the Icarus. He got too close to the Sun and burned. His burning released forth the dragons. The third burning will bring forth a human child and fulfill the "one to love" prophecy. I don't think Daenerys will have a child through conventional means. Sansa will be the murderer of Robert Arryn. The real Prince Aegon was murdered by Tywin's men. This Aegon is a prop. A mummer's prop to steal the throne. Arya will commit mass murder the likes of which has not been seen before. The faceless men are plotting to bring down a major city and Arya is their loaded weapon. Tyrion will become the lord of casterly rock and reconcile with Jaime for a big battle with Bran Stark and the wights.
  6. Jaime needs to check into A$$hole Rehab and get a new personality. The Starks will try to kill him for what he did to Bran but he might survive until the end. A villain like that took five books to build. George Martin won't let Jaime die just yet. Jaime will find a way to temporarily escape Bran's wrath until near the ending. So yes, Bran will get his revenge on Jaime but not until near the end. The Starks will be total savages by then and Jaime will suffer before dying. I don't see Jaime getting redeemed. Jaime and Bran are both on course for their deadly personal confrontation.
  7. Jon is a bastard regardless of how badly some fans would like to fantasize him legitimate. If he is even Rhaegar's son. Rhaegar was already married and had children with Princess Elia. A more interesting, and more desirable to me, is Jon being just a bastard son of Ned Stark. Not with Ashara but with the fisherman's daughter. Jon's fuck up at the Wall will have severe negative outcomes. I don't think he will come back a whole man. I think he will come back as one of the White Walkers.
  8. Seeking revenge is bad but if it were only that she will be less of a villain. It is bad when she killed the old man. She killed him to pass an exam.
  9. Jon is the comparison. Dany is more able and more capable. Failure is possible. The mission to give the slaves freedom could fail. But that has not happened yet. While Jon already failed at the wall. Jon failed. Jon failed the Nights Watch and Westeros. It's in the past and Jon's tragic time at the wall will be written in the history books for future students to study failure. Dany can still succeed and help the slaves be free.
  10. It was meant as a joke. Right? Jon was a terrible lord commander. Mild-mannered, reasonable Bowen Marsh was pushed to the limits by Jon's incompetence.
  11. Rickon was losing himself to Shaggydog because the instincts of the animal overpower his feeble reason. It wasn't madness but the boy going wild. He sure has a taste for human flesh with garlic by now but that in itself is not crazy to the Skagos people. It would look insane to normal people though.
  12. The plight of the Westeros lower class puts them in consistent state of misery and pain. They cope and live without going mad. Arya lost it because of this trait she inherited from Cat. Her personality too is tense and reacts strongly to stress.
  13. Jon Snow's parents both have dark hair. Lyanna + Mance = Jon. The closest alternative are Lyanna and Brandon = Jon. Bailor's hair was such because he was part Targaryen. Darkstar, not Jon Snow, is the Haff-Targ.
  14. Jon Snow and Bran Stark are never going to be accepted by the remaining people. But there is hope for Rickon Stark. The battle of ice will lead to the demise of Stannis and Roose. Both sides will be weakened. The Wildlings will bring in more of their own from the other side of the wall and take control of the north. The Skagosi might get involved in this conflict. The North will become very, very primitive and that is just the venue for savages like Rickon Cannibal, Jon Wight, Bran Tree, and Arya Faceless to survive in. The negative public image of House Stark is not undeserved. And the words coming out of Jaime Lannister has the same value as the contents of his chamber pot. In other words, the public opinion of the Starks south of the Neck will remain negative. But those things do not matter to the Wildlings and the Skagosi cannibals who will come to dominate the North.
  15. Yes he did. Robb did not consider the source of his authority. Robb lacked the intelligence and the discipline to handle even that power. The source of his authority was coming from the support of the lesser lords below him. Robb failed his try to become king and he was too ignorant to realize where his authority was coming from. He let power get to his mind and he was careless with it because he thought it was always going to be there. Robb let himself believe he was truly a king with more power and authority than reality proved.
  16. The discussion has meandered from the main topic. Jon got the Night's Watch involved in a conflict with the Boltons over Arya. It was illegal to do it. Jon was going to attack the Boltons. Those are the reasons why Bowen Marsh cancelled Jon Snow.
  17. 'have to read" Is anyone forcing you to read my post? No. You chose to read. If you don't like an opinion you are free to ignore it. You are not being forced to read opinions you don't like. Your insults and complaints are not going to stop people from expressing their opinions.
  18. A sword without a hilt is a blade that can cut the wielder. Magic is one example, sure. But people are as well. Robert Strong is a weapon that can cut Cersei and Qyburn. Arya is a weapon that has already cut the Faceless Men because she's too wild to handle. Power cut down Robb Stark. He let the allure of kingship get in his head but that power, a power he lacked adequate discipline to wield, cut his head.
  19. Arya Stark is not going to stop killing until she dies or she murders everyone on her list. Then she will kill people who cross her in some fashion. She will become more wicked than the people on her list.
  20. I was reading those chapters at Harrenhal to get more information on Roose and he was the star of those chapters. I have never found Arya herself interesting. But Roose made things mysterious. He was weird. Arya has an unusual look. The face of the north. The long head shape is what earned her the nickname "horseface." It is almost impossible for Roose Bolton to fail to recognize her strange appearance because it is out of place in the heart of the river lands. So it begs the question why he didn't take her prisoner and gift her to Lord Walder Frey. I might believe Roose was not thinking clearly due to excess blood loss and he thought she was an orphan who was displaced by the Stark Rebellion.
  21. The Starks put the Freys in a very difficult situation. I can understand Walder wanting to avoid getting the same thing the Goodbrooks got from Hoster Tully. The Freys were forced to pick a side. They honored the pact with the Starks. The Starks did not.
  22. Far greater. And the Targaryens are the rightful rulers of all because they are the descendants of the Empresses and Emperors of the Great Empire Of The Dawn.
  23. Just right if her only crimes are what she has done so far. Much too light if she continues to murder. I am predicting Arya will commit the mass murder of King's Landing to get to her enemies. There is no punishment stiff enough for that level of crime against life.
