    Rethinking Romance: Love Stories of ASOIAF, Part 2

    I consider this a bit of foreshadowing. People thought it was fine that fake Arya (Poor Jeyne Poole) is married to a bastard in the books. Maybe real Arya will be married to her bastard Gendry.

    Ned wasn’t a true Stark

    I actually think that Lady Dustin wanted to have the powerful position of being the Lady of Winterfell and she didn't get it. And maybe her family was grasping for power. It seemed that Lady Dustin was pulling a Jeyne Westerling on Brandon except Brandon honored the marriage alliance with the Tullys. And she expected to be married to Ned except Ned kept the same arrangement with the Tullys. I don't think that Rickard had southron ambitions. Considering that Winter can be harshest in the North maybe making friends with the west of the seven Kingdoms is not a bad idea. If the North made some sort of alliance or friendship with the Reach that might help with food in the Wintertime. I see Lady Dustin as being bitter about not getting the handsome, powerful lord as her husband. Rickard could have made a northern marriage for Brandon but it could be from another Northern house and she will probably still be bitter.

    Why do people hate Sansa?

    Which almighty sadistic prick are you talking about - Joffrey or Cersei.

    Danys campaign

    All wars are devastating. Smallfolk always pay the price for the wars.

    Season 8 Predictions?

    The predictable ending is that Jon and Dany rule Westeros with their children as heirs. Put on my tinfoil hat. A more interesting ending will be no Targ restoration. I think that Jon and Dany's kid is the Prince that is Promised and that this kid will be the sacrifice needed to be made to defeat the Night King. I think that Melisandre's visions were somewhat correct except that it didn't pertain to Stannis but pertained to Jon and Dany. Jon and Dany will need to sacrifice their heir to end the Long Night. I think that was why she went to Dany in season 7 and had her meet Jon. I also think that King's Landing will burn down and that there would not be a ruler of a unified Westeros. I think each region will rule itself. I think that some god has been guiding the Targ dynasty so that they can end the Long Night. They escaped the Doom of Valyria because of this destiny. Dany can birth dragons because of it. Jon has been resurrected because of it.

    House Targaryen, the First Family of ASOIAF

    i agree. If she takes Westeros it will be as a conqueror. I think the Westerosi perception of her won't be good no matter what her intentions are. If one Dothraki steals or rapes someone there is no good way in spinning that in her favor.

    Danys campaign

    I agree. Having the Dothraki as part of her army will NOT help her. Her opponents will use them against her.

    House Targaryen, the First Family of ASOIAF

    I actually do think that the Targs are important to the series but I also think that the main Targ line won't survive the series. I think that the only reason that the Targs survived the Doom of Valyria is to fight the Night King. I also think that the Prince that was Promised will be Dany or Dany's child. But I also think that the Prince that was Promised will be the sacrifice needed to end the Long Night. And i can't see Dany ruling Westeros. i don't think that the Westerosi people would be all that accepting about the dragons and the Dothraki and Unsullied armies. The Westerosi might see her as a foreigner coming with her foreign army. And we have seen the Dothraki army rape and pillage. They don't have good PR which will reflect on her. I actually think that Illyrio brokered the marriage between Dany and Drogo because of the bad reputation the Dothraki have. And the dragons are magnificent but they might not be controllable. Or they can be a perception that they are not controllable. Dragons can cause a lot of damage and I think that many people would always fear them. If Winter is Coming and food is scarce i doubt that the Westerosi would want to feed dragons and a foreign army. I doubt that the Westerosi cares about Dany freeing Essosi slaves especially if they are cold and starving. I doubt that many Westerosi care about her birthright. Dany doesn't have much support in Westeros. There were valid reasons on why the Targ dynasty was deposed in the first place. And Dany's ruthless actions while valid can be used against her. I think it will be easy for the Lannisters or the Tyrells to paint her as a Mad Queen especially if the dragons hurt anybody (accidentally or not). The Lannisters and the Tyrells would want to keep the power that they have since the Targ dynasty was deposed. The Tyrells also have the added benefit of giving food to the smallfolk. And her killing the slave masters while I think was valid won't help her cause and it can be turned against her. I like Dany and she really does want to help people. And I like her belief in herself. She does need to take into account that the Westerosi people might not want her as a ruler. She can't brush aside what their perceptions might be. She will be seen as a foreign conqueror not as somebody fighting for her birthright. If she uses her dragons or the Dothraki in battle, that might not get people on her side and might even backfire on her.

    Whatever the faceless men are doing will be intriguing.

    Bran is the Night King

    If King's Landing does burn, and if a dragon is to do it, I want that decision to be Jon's and not Bran's. Isn't ruling and making the hard decisions part of Jon's arc. Didn't Jon get the same lessons in ruling as Bran does. If this scenario happens, Bran can still warg into people's minds and hear their last thoughts, but the decision to have King's Landing burn should be made by either Jon or Dany if that decision is to be made. To me its a cop out that if the decision to sacrifice the inhabitants of King's Landing is not being made by Jon or Dany. If either of them is to rule, they have to make the hard decisions.

    Varys has no purpose

    Varys might have a purpose that is related to the endgame or to some sort of magic or to some knowledge that he possesses or all three. I think his purpose is more end game related than season 7 related.

    Future of the Riverlands? Is it game over?

    Tinfoil hat theory. One of the Starks will rule the Riverlands. Most likely Arya. Or at least that is what I would like to happen.

    Bran is the Night King

    I don't know how accurate this is, I found this on another forum and think its interesting in what role Bran has to play. https://www.google.com/amp/s/weirwoodleviathan.wordpress.com/2017/09/08/bran-them-all-the-fate-of-kings-landing/amp/

    winter will not come in 2018

    He never finished any of his grand series. That is depressing. We might get Winds, but we will probably never get A Dream of Spring or an ending. Bummer.

    Who will get to rule Dorne and the Reach in the end?

    Why would it be bad if Jon is king.
