    ASoIaF character poll

    I was wondering the same thing.

    The Carter Presidency And The Game Of Thrones

    You can't go overboard with harsh. Stannis burned his own men. Is that going to have consequences?

    The Carter Presidency And The Game Of Thrones

    Reagan was passionately against the Soviet Union the evil empire. That beacon kept his policies on target. Love him or hate him he was effective and got what he wanted. Wishy washy get little done.

    Poll: Has Brienne Become a Wight?

    I don't think she's dead yet. Do you expect Cat killed her and then passed on the breath of life to her corpse?

    Dorne Predictions

    Dorne will be ripped apart and the Martells will be ousted. Arianne will drag Aegon into her scheming and plotting. Both of which can and will get both of them killed. Elia Sand is the hope for the Martells. Darkstar is the wildcard.

    Jon's Shield Hall Speech and Subsequent Plan

    You're ignoring the reason why Ramsay got upset to start with. Jon, the lord commander of the nw, had no business in sticking his nose in Ramsay's business. Ramsay would have no need to threaten if Jon had not done something wrong from the beginning. Jon had already done a lot of wrongs by the time the pink letter arrived.

    The Ghost of High Heart, and a promised... “Prince”?

    All those are possibilities but it is more likely that Aemon has finally figured out the truth.

    Jon's Shield Hall Speech and Subsequent Plan

    It is realistic expectations for someone in a critical position. Jon himself in his own POV said he would tell his brothers to stay put, the sister is no longer his problem. Look, nobody said it was going to be easy. People in the military, emergency rescue, do it all the time in the real world. The people who work and do their jobs during emergencies (hurricane evacuation, for example) would rather be with their families helping them instead of the people they serve but they stay at their jobs. I served with guys who had pregnant wives back home, parents who were sick, you name it, but they stayed and continued to do their jobs. It's silly to think the expectations are unrealistic because people do it all the time. In the real world.

    Jon's Shield Hall Speech and Subsequent Plan

    You're not the lord commander of the Night's Watch. A man in such a position has bigger responsibilities than to run off and take care of a sister. That's harsh to hear but it's reality. Not every person is cut out for command and Jon clearly is not.

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

    Dragons would not bond with the mentally ill. I think that is one of the keys to dragon bonding, mental and emotional strength. I believe the loss of the dragons affected some of the Targaryens in negative ways. They may be drawn to bond with the dragons just as the dragons were drawn to bond with the Targaryens. The dragons gave them super immune systems. Who is to say this connection with the dragons didn't also give them immunity from other forms of illness. The Valyrians could not have kept their empire together for thousands of years if they had a high incidence of mental illness. They could not have done it. This madness, however small the percentage is, is a recent phenomenon. The deaths of the male Targaryens most likely got rid of the bad genes.

    Probably because Daenerys has a lot of fans and this is her family that you're criticizing. Aren't you also defensive when it comes to the Starks? I think so.

    Rhaella is not Lysa. Aerys was. But his reaction is actually just an exaggeration of parents who have lost many of their children. He meant to make little Viserys his heir and wanted to keep him safe. But I like the idea of fostering him off to the Tyrells or the Martells. I just want to keep him away from Oberyn. Oberyn is not exactly healthy either. And Doran has OCD like symptoms. I'm not saying they're mad. A lot of people walking around today have OCD but we accept it. Those "madness" that they refer to would probably be accepted today.

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

    Obnoxious, stupid, entitled, and bitterly frustrated is how Sansa can be described too. But sure. I agree for the most part that Viserys was not mentally ill. But he was depressed and desperate. His emotions ran high and his anger had no outlet. It was inexcusable to beat his sister the way he did. She was the only good thing, the best thing, in his life. But I guess an average man like me can understand that and he's a king.

    How far south will the Others get?

    Winterfell and the entirety of the north will be destroyed. However, since the north has a smaller population than the south, then it cannot be called tragic if only the north were to fall. About half of us here could care less about the north. George Martin wants to keep the story on the bitter side so the white walkers will make it to the south. At least Casterly Rock, King's Landing, The Twins, and the riverlands will fall to them. Sunspear is too far to the south and will be spared from the white walkers but it will be inundated with refugees. Dorne and the southern part of the Reach will suffer indirectly from the refugees.
