    The Family Traditions of House Bolton (Theory)

    Ocular albinism (which is what Roose probably has, if he isn't an immortal vampire) is caused by an X-linked gene. Roose would have got the condition from his mother. Now, if you're correct and the Boltons marry their cousins, this would make sense, as Roose would get his distinctive eyes from a pale-eyed Bolton mother. Perhaps his mysterious first wife was a fellow Bolton. That being said, we hear of no cousins or uncles - and the Boltons weren't operating a one-heir-only system, having male uncles and cousins would be unavoidable. If they could be trusted, Roose would have them by his side (or name one of them instead of Ramsay as castellan of the Dreadfort). If they could not be trusted, I think they would still have come up in conversation. It's also worth noting that if Roose has uncles or cousins, he doesn't need Ramsay for an heir - he could just use one of them.

    The other reason I think there are no Bolton women is it would give another House a claim to the Dreadfort, which, again, creates wars of succession.

    The role of Jon Snow in TWoW

    Jon failed to persuade Marsh about anything: the wildlings, for one, but mostly he failed to persuade Marsh he was competent. If he did even one thing Marsh would have done, or at least showed he understood and respected Marsh's reasoning, he might well be alive.

    ASOIAF Jokes

    I once made a wager with Ramsay Bolton. If he lost, I got to be heir to the Dreadfort; if I lost, he'd flay me because he said I needed skin in the game.

    While I suspect you're right, that would disappoint me.

    Areo Hotah - The Most Boring Man in Westeros?

    Human robots are never very exciting, are they?

    The Future of Melisandre

    I can totally see her accidentally sabotaging the war for the dawn, and then trying to brazen it out the way she always does.

    Areo Hotah - The Most Boring Man in Westeros?

    Technically, Jorah betrayed her for a pardon. No gold was offered him, AFAIK.

    Minor characters you wanna see lose and why?

    Damn. I completely forgot these two

    That one has perplexed me. If Roose mananged to become a Stark, why doesn't he rule the North anymore? And if he was the King in the North, who was ruling the Dreadfort? TBH I think that might be a red herring.

    Minor characters you wanna see lose and why?

    Any Frey will do (the Red Wedding, in case you hadn't guessed) Ser Clayton Suggs (prick) Ser Lyn Corbray (prick) Lord Mace Tyrell (ambitious prick) Bowen Marsh, Wick Whittlestick & the other traitorous bastards who stabbed Jon (murdering Jon, in case you hadn't guessed) Daario Naharis (insufferable, arrogant excuse for a character) There's my list

    And if this is his plan, the last thing he needs is extra sons starting wars of succession. If the sons do not know about Roose's body-snatching, then they may just pull a Daemon Blackfyre or a Renly Baratheon and revolt. If they DO know, there are a few paths this could go down. They could be horrified and try to kill Roose to get rid of him out of fear of what he is; they may decide THEY would be better vessels; or they could accidentally reveal this info to a random camp follower or something. There are so many ways this could go wrong, if excess sons are in the picture. Hence the systematic infanticide.

    Roose does not strike me as the sort of man to procrastinate, but that's just me

    I misspoke, but said cousin was a male-line descendant of the Arryn founder. Also, I'm pretty sure LF gave Sansa a lecture on how the Arryns (at least recently) haven't been overly fertile.

    If Domeric isn't Roose's, why does he survive past infancy?
