    Predicting and Gambling

    I suppose it's like children playing poker with plastic chips or playing bao with seashells. Azor Ahai = Daenerys Targaryen King of Winter = Jon Snow

    The Official Count of Kings

    The author considers Viserys a king. The beggar king. He described how Viserys should be depicted to an artist who was drawing each of the Targaryen kings. Viserys and Daenerys are included on the art work of Targaryen monarchs. Rhaegar was not.

    Skinchanging a dead body

    Hodor is the same species as Bran. The link translates better. It's a different experience with Summer because the wolf doesn't have the same thought processes as a human. He's an instinctive animal. Rules and morality do not apply in the wolf's mind. It feels hunger, it hunts. It's drawn to the pack for survival. Hodor is simple but he's still human. He cares for Bran out of friendship. It's not because of a bond or some instinctual thing.

    George hates hero worship

    Hero depends on how the individual reader sees it. They're a hero if they do something solid for the people whom the reader likes and villains if they hurt the reader's favorite characters.

    Do you think something personal is keeping him from finishing?

    the honeyed locusts...

    It was poison but given the lack of sanitary food handling __ food borne illness is possible. Grasshoppers don't have to pass the commission of agriculture's food safety inspections. Reznak might do something like this but Skahaz would not. Skahaz would not risk the one person who protects his kin. The mo Kandaqs threw in with the liberators. They were considered traitors to the slaving class. The other slave owning families would have no kind feelings for him and his.

    Eye color from birth?

    Eye color differentiates families and bloodlines. Blue eyes are not uncommon but purple is. It is one of the characteristics known collectively as the Blood Of The Dragon. The Starks have among their family line this collection of traits called the Wolf's Blood. It can carry personality quirks in some but we are only talking about physical characteristics here such as the long face and dark hair.
  8. A cruel person can lead effectively. They just have to be consistent and make the right decisions for the good of the majority. While taking into consideration the welfare of the minority. Tywin Lannister was a bad man but a good administrator. Aerys was crazy but his kingdom prospered under his rule. Robert was a good man but the realm suffered under his reign. It's not about being a good person. What it really is about is being effective.
  9. Similar but not the exact same threat. History seldom repeats itself perfectly. Cold and dark extinguish life. Everything depends on photosynthesis. Surviving that apocalypse necessitated the removal of all the evil weirwood trees in Essos.

    Do You Think Sam Will Forge His Chain?

    He'll get expelled from the school. No chains for Sam.
  12. Brown is the color of feces. A person so smeared in public loses a bit of their gravitas if it should so happen as punishment. Cersei and Joffrey got fecal bombed and lost their step. It depends on the circumstance. Jorah and Barristan were hip deep in the sewers of Meereen but that's not public punishment.
  13. There it is. Get to the heart of the matter. I like it. He might already be. A walking Snowman with a grudge. Not that he didn't already carry a big grudge before. Things could finally get interesting at the wall. The Snowman comes back as an insane wight. His mind an amalgamation of jon, wolf, and wight.

    Characters who deserve to DIE

    There. Forgive me for editing your list. I thought it was good except for those two. Bowen Marsh doesn't deserve to die. He is a loyal man of the Night's Watch who did what he did to stop Jon Snow from doing any more harm than he already has to the Watch, the kingdom, and the north. What he did was a selfless act of courage to stop his erratic commander. Agreed. Roose killed the squatters. Raped Ramsay's mom and hanged her husband. The sabotaging of Robb's army was okay because the Starks were rebels. Roose had a higher duty to the king over Robb. Rebellion is wrong by law.

    The three Kingsguard were loyal to Rhaegar, not Aerys.

    The KG were sent by King Aerys to seek out and find Lyanna. I suppose to return her to the rebels in the hopes of stopping the war. They (Hightower, Whent, Dayne) found her, but it was too late. The royalists lost at the trident and Aerys was murdered. They were not there to protect anybody. Given a choice of obeying Aerys or Rhaegar and the choice is easy. The KG would obey Aerys.
