    Poll: The Southron Ambitions

    Rickard was plotting to remove the Targaryens from the throne. So yes.

    Poll: The Southron Ambitions

    I agree. For one thing, everybody knew what would happen if Rickard succeeded in building his coalition. He would be able to challenge Aerys. Everybody knows a king could never allow one of his vassals to become more powerful than he is. War was coming unless Rickard gave up on his plans.

    Were anti-magic maesters happy with Rickard's southron ambitions?

    Magic had just about died at the time. I doubt the maesters were trying to end magic. And if they were, well let us say they chose the wrong family to start a campaign against magic. The Starks used magic in the past to beat the other contenders in the north. They skin change and give human sacrifices to the Old Gods.

    The House of the Undying

    It has never been proven that Jon is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen. Jon is not living fire. He is ice if anything.

    Why did Jon lock Ghost up?

    It's not the only line that gets blurred in the novels. He already broke his oath and committed treason against the watch for Arya.

    Why did Jon lock Ghost up?

    Why did Jon lock Ghost up? To mollify the others around him.

    Why did Jon lock Ghost up?

    People called him that but it's not for locking up his dog. IIRC, it was his decision to execute Janos Slynt and send Mance to bring Arya to him that generated those comments. I don't think D + J is going to happen. Ice and Fire do not mix. Should not mix. Wilas Tyrell is my choice for Daenerys. He's the only groom who brings sufficient gravitas to the union. Aegon is another good choice. Arya is my choice for Jon. Jon is a passionate man who doesn't stick to the rules. He is just the type to cast aside customs and tradition to marry his half-sister Arya.

    Who will command Dany's fleet?

    There are a lot of sea captains to be found. It's not hard to find them. The mission is not that hard. The ships may stay close to within sight of shore. Excellent navigation skills are not a job requirement. I agree that the management of a large Freedom Force will need to be delegated. Command of the infantry side will fall on Greyworm. The cavalry could be commanded by her bloodriders. Barristan can map out the landing strategy.

    no kidnapping tyrion

    Robert is still incompetent. The Starks still suspect the Lannisters. Eddard will still discover Cersei and Jaime's secret, the kids are theirs, not Robert's. Eddard and Cersei will still clash and Robert will end up dead. Sansa can't be trusted with a secret and she will run her mouth to Cersei. Not much will change. Jaime and Cersei stole the throne with their children. Eddard and Stannis will always have a problem with that.

    Shiera Seastar's whereabouts

    Shiera died a long time ago. She is of the same age as Brynden Rivers and the only reason he still lives are the tree roots. He's more tree than man. Shiera can't live this long unless she found the fountain of youth and then she would parade her beauty for all to see. Short story, Shiera died a long time ago.

    Mance Rayder violated guest rights!

    There are two separate points to be discussed. Jon sent Mance Rayder to bring his sister to the wall. He was going to take Arya somewhere where her husband can't reach her. That's not being neutral. Jon gave Mance Rayder a get out of execution card. For all of that, Jon is guilty of treason. He was about to do something worse than what the Nightking did, he was going to lead an attack against the people he swore to defend. Jon is guilty of all of those and Bowen Marsh was right to kill him. Mance Rayder broke guest rights but that's not surprising because Mance was never good at obeying rules. Jon is responsible for the whole mission but he's not responsible for what Mance decided to do in Winterfell. A president who sends troops to the middle east is responsible for the war but he's not responsible for the actions of each individual soldier. I do not think Jon is guilty of breaking the tradition of guest rights. He is guilty for sending Mance out in the first place but he's not guilty of breaking the spirit of guest rights.
  13. I watched this interview after following the link elsewhere in the forum and George said something that got my attention at approximately 30 minutes into the interview. Based on what he said, I don't think Bran Stark will get to skin change a dragon. I would like dragons to have immunity from being skin changed.

    Daenerys is Azor Ahai.

    The prophecy of Azor Ahai comes from the east. I don't know why Mellisandre ever thought it was Stannis. I don't think George Martin is a nihilist who will turn the world back to prehistoric times. Dany (Azor Ahai) will find a way to help her people endure the long winter. If the myth is true that the first long night was caused by the blood betrayal then it is reasonable to assume that the way to end it is to set things right. By right, I mean to satisfy the Lion of the Night (the moon). The Lion of the Night and the Maiden Made of Light (the sun) punished man for the blood betrayal. The Maiden Made of Light (the sun) his her face, thus causing the long night. The Lion of the Night (the moon) sent his white walkers to punish man. That's how the myth goes. If Dany is the reincarnation of their daughter, the Amethyst Empress, then her mere birth should satisfy the Lion of the Night, appease his anger and make him (the moon, the symbol for the night) go away. The rebirth of her daughter may be enough to please the Maiden Made of Light (the sun) and draw her back into the world. I don't think warring against the white walkers is the answer. Quite possibly, Dany will have to avenge the blood betrayal and seek out the reincarnation of her brother and kill him. I'm fine with that.
