    Jon Stark or Snow?

    He has no birthright, he's a damn bastard.
  2. - Lysa Arryn and Petyr Baelish were responsible for that. Plus Ned is a grown man and made his own decisions. - She acted on impulse and grief for her son. It was a stupid mistake but Ned was the hand of the king, best friends with the king and the head of one of the most powerful families, there was no way he was going to be punished for what his wife done. They also had evidence that Tyrion tried to kill Bran. - Ned was beheaded by Joffery and probably still would have been even if Cat still had Tyrion. Joffery would have done (and did) what he wanted. - Again stupid mistake done by a desperate person who just lost her husband, two daughters, her home and thinks her two sons have been murdered. Cat gets a bad rap but her actions are understandable when you think about what she has went through in such a short space of time.
  3. I wouldn't say idiots. I'd say emotional. I love reading these post blaming people for acting stupidly or doing stuff that we know is a bad decision. Catelyn, Eddard, Sansa, Robb, etc. The OPs usually talk like they themselves are some kind of emotionless robots that would always see the correct action to take. You are completely missing out the fact the Catelyn has just had to watch her child in a bed for months waiting to see if he'll die. I'm guessing anyone wouldn't take much convincing at that point when it comes to their child's assassin. As for Ned. He followed the law and his own judgment as best he could. Most likely the war would have broken out anyway as Varys was planning for a war.
  4. I disagree but everyone is entitled to their opinion I guess.
  5. I would say it was Viserys that caused this. I think it would be in character for him to think that no suitor was good enough for a Targaryen king (he did see himself as the rightful king). I also think he planned to have Daenerys as his queen after Drogo had won him the Iron Throne.
  6. Yeah I agree. I also think he was given some of Stannis's role. I think the show writers have basically decided that he is the hero of the story and it makes sense to cut other characters out and give him their storylines to emphasize that. I just think his role will be a bit different in the books.
  7. I think Rickon will survive in the books and that Jon has taken his storyline in the show.

    So Rhaegar annulled his marriage to Elia Martell...

    The only other time caused a massive war though. People seem to argue that poligamy was no big deal for the Targaryens. Aegon was already married to his sisters and had just conquered Westeros with dragons. When Maegor tried to take a second wife many people objected, especially the faith and this started a civil war.

    Your heart's desire last words of GOT?

    Skip ahead 5 years and Jon and Daenery's kid is climbing a tower. He sees old Jaime and old Cersei going at it. "The things I do for Love" Cut to black.
  10. I think Davos answered this one: He's a damn bastard!

    Why hasn't there been a new Maestor at Castle black yet?

    According to GRRM Maesters are paid for by the Lord they are sent to. So maybe the Watch cannot justify the cost of a new Maester.

    Would you let Samwell inherit Hornhill?

    Calm down Randyll. But seriously I agree. I would probably let him become a maester though.

    Will the Riverlands ever be truly united?

    We need Edmure to step up once hes freed. A strong Riverrun, Twins and Harrenhal would help immensely.

    House Targaryen, the First Family of ASOIAF

    I'm not talking about the First men who came over to Westeros. You said the Yronwoods, Gardeners, Durrandons, Lannisters, Darklyns, Reynes, Royces, Brackens are all older than the Starks. There is no information to come to that conclusion. They all claim to be founded in the age of heroes and that's it. Also the existence of settlements in Starfall and Oldtown doesn't mean that houses Dayne and Hightower created them or even existed at the time. Houses Dayne and Hightower might have built on what was already there later on. Again there is not enough info to conclude anything.

    House Targaryen, the First Family of ASOIAF

    I never said they weren't. Where are you getting this info? There is no information about all those houses you list as Dornish First men houses being older than any other house. They all claim to be from the age of heroes, the Starks included.

    House Targaryen, the First Family of ASOIAF

    So the best choice of ruler for Westeros are two people that have never set foot there since they were babies? Both have no idea how to rule Westeros better than any of the current contenders. You say that Stannis is out of touch with Westeros. He's more in touch with his own home than two people who have been raised in another continent with different customs. People don't like Stannis because of his personality, but this donsn't mean he'll be a bad king. Probably the best ruler Westeros could have had was Tywin lannister, if nothing else he was a great ruler.

    House Targaryen, the First Family of ASOIAF

    I would say that houses Gardener, Stark, Lannister, Dayne, Hightower and Durrandon are all older than house Targaryen. Weren't the Valyrians still sheep-herding folk while the Long night was happening and the great houses of Westeros were being formed?
  18. Jon might still be a bastard, just Raegar's bastard. So he would not have been the rightful king anyway, meaning it would have passed to Viserys if the Targaryens had not been usurped.
  19. Out of interest who are the uncles and nieces that have been married? I have never heard that before. I think Jon should find any incest unacceptable as it is a pretty big no no in the old gods faith, right up there with violating guest rights. Look at how he reacts to Craster and how it lowers his opinion of Jeor Mormont a bit when he finds out the watch knows what Craster was up to.
  20. I'm pretty sure that if Robert had any clue as to where Lyanna was he would have hauled ass for that location no matter what. Tywin also didnt need to set anyone up, westeros was already at war and I dont think a letter from Rhaegar was going to stop it at that point. I think it's time to face the facts that Lyanna and Rhaegar were just selfish and hypocritical and only cared for each other.
  21. He sure seemed like it. I bet that was what Elia was thinking when her children were being murdered and she was being raped.

    Can Jon Get Burnt?

    Considering Jon gets burnt in that very scene I am going to guess that he can get burnt.
