    What is the importance of the Hrakkar, the White Lion?

    This is the trope against the color white standing for something good. White is the color of winter and snow. The mechanism by which mother nature will use to kill the living. White is the color of death. Jaime, Jon, Pycelle are the opposite of the pure because they corrupted the organization they each belonged to. Their stain is there in the white.

    What was Tywin's original plan?

    Bravo. What Catelyn did was very provocative and effectively declared war on the Lannisters. Westeros would be so much better off with the Starks and the Lannisters relegated to minor houses.

    Who is Quaithe?

    This is because Daenerys Targaryen is the only one who can be trusted to have the power of three dragons. Think about what somebody like Arya would do with dragons. Nothing good for sure. She would use these wonderful dragons to exact revenge against those who beat up on the Starks. All of the Starks put together is not worthy of needing a dragon to avenge. The dragons are much bigger and more epic than the Stark family. What would Jon do? He would burn the Dreadfort to the ground even knowing those Bolton men could be helpful. Stannis would do the same. Daenerys will use her dragons to help the slaves win their freedom. If there is a cause worthy of dragons and the Unsullied this is it. Quaithe knows this silver-haired girl is very important.

    Could Dany conquer Dorne with a Dothraki horde?

    Sure. The Dothraki cannot be stopped. If Dorne could feed their horses, so can the Dothraki. The guerilla hiding tactics that the Dornish employed against the Conqueror is not going to work against the Dothraki. The Dothraki will have no qualms setting whole Dornish towns to the flames to bring out the men who are hiding. All the Dothraki will have to do is take control of the major ports in Dorne. Even the Dornish cannot eat sand. Rhaenys was too lenient on the yellow toad. She could have punished the Dornish who stayed behind. Dornish will can be broken.

    Aegon VI as a ruler

    1- Slavery was wrong even back then. That's why a whole religion outlaw it. That slavery is bad is not a new idea. 2- No it isn't easy to end. Doesn't mean good people shouldn't try. 3- They cannot fight against slavery everywhere, that is true. But they could perhaps free Volantis.
  6. It's not plot convenience. It is a character flaw of Jon Snow. He could not rise to the occasion and forget about Ned and the Starks for the benefit of defending against the white walkers. Stannis had no way to go forward. The Wall was his only real choice. He was not going to survive too long on Dragonstone. His family had always been allies with the Starks. Holing up in the north is as good a plan as any. He only has to fight the wildlings and the Boltons. A lesser threat than the Lannister-Tyrell forces.
  7. Jon's emotional attachment to the Starks biased him against the Lannisters and the Boltons. He could and should have tried harder to convince the realm of the white walker threat. But he disliked the Boltons and the Lannisters. He gave a little effort but it was too little when you consider the importance of the need to convince the realm. Jon was too concerned with fighting the Stark's enemies. He was not going to ask Robb to turn tail and come to the wall while the Starks are at war with the people who executed his dad. Jon was not nearly as effective of a commander as his fans would like to sell.

    Is Walder Frey the smartest man in Westeros?

    Walder Frey is generally a smart man. He didn't build one of the wealthiest houses in Westeros by being dumb. His greatest strength is his support group. He doesn't lack for capable advisers with sons like Lothar at his disposal. He was smart enough to shut Olvar's mouth to make his plan work. He kept good discipline with his troops and his planned worked beautifully. Robb was not smart enough to do the same to his minions. Theon and Cat betrayed him for love of family. Cat's betrayal is more damaging than her fans would care to admit. RW might have not happened if they had Jamie in custody.

    Aegon VI as a ruler

    True, but it is a start towards progress. Or would you rather people sit on their arses and watch the Ghiscari continue to practice slavery because of the excuse that ending slavery isn't going to solve every social inequality in the world. Look, just because the abolition of slavery won't solve every human misery is a poor reason to not do anything about it. It reflects poorly on Westeros because they sat on their fat bums when they should have been fighting against slavery instead of fighting among themselves for the stupidest of reasons. I look down on Catelyn's decision to arrest a Lannister to get revenge for Bran. I look down on Jon's decision to put the Night's Watch into an awkward position just so he can rescue Arya. I applaud Dany for her efforts in helping the slaves become free.

    How many lowborn POV are there?

    They are the movers and the shakers. Their lives are richer. What interest in reading the life of a farm boy.

    Is Walder Frey the smartest man in Westeros?

    Many children do increase the survival of the house but it introduces the problem of finding spouses of equal social status for such children. It offered little to nothing financially. Old Walder had to pay dowry to the husbands.

    King's Landing - an unrealistic city?

    Civil engineering was not the science back then. The fort was built where it was convenient to do so for military reasons. The city grew out of it. Water flow rids the sewage and provides drinking water. Yikes all from the same source. Gross isn't it. Oh the stench. Kingslanding was the bog of eternal stench.

    So where would you live ?

    Not Westeros. Qarth. Where it's fashionable for men to go all emo and cry. Awesome taste in women's fashion. Nice, dry climate.
  14. I never felt guilty. And I never will. I love Daenerys. I don't take the show seriously. I'm more of a book person. Like 95% book and 5% show. My Daenerys is the one in the books because what the show created is beyond logic. The show character is as much a cartoon character as the Starks, whom they choose to portray with zero accuracy.

    Gendry King's Landing King

    Orys, yeah. Aegon rewarded him for taking down the Durandons. He got the girl and the castle.
