Squire (4/8)

  1. The grey rats were sabotaging the reign of the dragons. The highest ranking members of the order are being manipulated by the greenseers. They don't know it but they're helping the Others.
  2. The time is not right for Dany to go to Westeros. She has to pass the shadow to get back to the light. Go east to go west. And so on. She will use the time to learn prophecies and to increase the size of her army.
  3. Holding children accountable and punishing them is not objectionable. So consider Arya. She is a child but murders people. Cersei took the life of her best friend when they were children. Jon was young when he killed Janos Slynt. Twelve is a good age to hold a person accountable for participating in slavery. Twelve is also old enough to make them dangerous.
  4. Too bad they only have natural medicines like herbs. Most of us live in the 1st world where almost half of the adults are on some kind of anti-depressant.
  5. The harpy will not willingly accept the end of slavery. The harpy is not interested in the wrong or the right of slavery. There is a line in Fevre Dream that basically says slavery must end. Better if it ends in peace but if there must be fire and blood to end it then so be it. The crime took place in the premises owned and operated by the wine shop owner and his family. The only customers to get targeted were Dany's men. The family had the means and the motive to commit the crime. It would be silly to let them off the hook without twisting their arms to get some info. Instructions to interrogate them separately is a very good strategy. The family would have been summarily executed in Westeros and their heads put on pikes just on slim suspicion. Leniency and a generous benefit of the doubt can be given in peace time but this is a war zone. The harpies are using terrorism to force the return of slavery. Slavery did not end without bloodshed in the U.S. Acts of necessary cruelty happened on both sides before slavery was finally ended.
  6. I don't think capturing slaves in westeros is smart. He's doing this because he, Aegon, or both are Blackfyre descendants. Slavery violates the right of each person. Dany is not under any ethical obligation to replace slavery with another system. All she is ethically obligated to do is free the slaves. It is then up to them to find a way to earn a living like everybody else. It is also the former masters' responsibility to find and earn a living, like every else. For Dany to replace slavery is almost the same as purchasing the slaves and compensating the masters. Keep this in mind. The slaves were never the property of the masters. They were prisoners. The only responsibility of the liberator is to open the gates to the jail and punish the masters for their war crime of nailing children to the crosses.
  7. Jon should have kept his nose clean. He should have never been voted into a command position. A guy like that should be kept low in the ranks. That way, when he shirks his duties, the damage will be minimal. Jon is the last person you and I would want to rule over anybody. It's not him. He would be better off running away and marrying Arya then live in exile as husband and wife.
  8. It may be Val doing an evil thing like entering the giant's skin and using him to drive off an unwelcome suitor. Rather selfish but she is a savage wildling. Skinchanging has ethics and guidelines but as I said, she is a wildling.
  9. The Lannisters controlled the Mountain. Had they known of the manner in which Jon Arryn was poisoned, they would have exposed Lysa and her boyfriend, LF. Mountain did it because it is what he does. Violence.
  10. Kings through time and history have had bastards. No bastard, as far as I know, have ever ascended to the throne. That idiot Aegon IV almost ruined the kingdom when he recognized and legitimized his bastards. At least part of the reason for Roose Bolton's siding with the Lannisters was to get a friendly king to legitimize Ramsay. It is not something normally done. Both of your candidates are bastards. Neither are really suitable for ruling even if they were legitimized. Mya Stone has no experience in ruling. Jon failed at the Wall. Even the Gods can't help Westeros if they are ever put on the throne.
  11. Winterfell and The Twins are strategically important locations. A fair settlement will be needed to bring them to the Targaryen program for Westeros to have a chance at surviving through the dark winter. I am not confident of a fair settlement. Jon will come back and he will be mad as hell. Arya is already murdering the victims on her list. Old Walder is on that list. The Starks are not interested in a fair settlement to the matter. They want revenge and they want Frey blood. This vision is important to the overall story. Daenerys will not give in to the Stark's demands and that will not win the Starks over. This is a decision which will isolate the Starks and lead to their demise in the north.
  12. What Lord Varys wants is an end to the bickering and quarrelling among the high lords. If not a complete end at least he wants long periods of rest and peace. The smallfolk needs a break from war. Varys is also the kind who thinks the end justifies the means. He knows the kingdoms can only be held together by strength. Therefore he will throw his support to the one who has the strength to reforge the little kingdoms and hold them together. By force if necessary. A stern but consistent leader is necessary.
  13. Jon has or had the worst timing of anybody. With all that you say is going on, the idiot made the decision to send a wildling criminal and a traitor to look for his sister. The argument with Slynt was the perfect time to unite the Brotherhood but instead it was broken by Jon. Slynt had friends. Jon alienated and upset them.
