  1. Does theory about George R. R. Martin never finish WOF, let alone DOTS, considered baseless prediction or likely scenario? I'm not sure. Anyway, recently he got involved in developing game "Elden Ring", which gave him en excuse not to work on the book fans so want from him. Certainly, after this he will start working on the script for some new HBO show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-CUJxIQkpA
  2. You mean industrialization? Don't thinks world of asoiaf can have one. They seems to be stuck in medieval times for the last 10k years and unlikely advance any further, just like the most fantasy worlds. Still, even considering the level of technology and economic development we have today, there are more then 40 millions of slaves in the our word right now [source]. So, nothing really can change.
  3. Oh, come on, of course he would say that. He still has a books to sell. From G. R. R. R. Martin himself we know that he told D&D his endings and some secrets from the books : Bran will become king, how Hodor became a communist mentally challenged, Dany's tyrannical reign, how Others were created, Euron will start putting fingers in the bums of major characters (figuratively, I hope )... So we know how approximately things will play out. Aerys was objectively insane, Aegon V, who burned down his entire family, too. Rhaegar is also qualified to be called mad, or at least he's fabulous idiot who was obsessed with the prophecy of the prince who was promised. Inbreeding does leave a mark in generation. Usually, in this cases, intelligence is affected the most.
  4. It's depends on what you mean by the endgame. Highly unlikely it all would ended up with Cersei and Golden Company VS Dany, Jon, Arya, Sansa, & Co. More possible, main antagonist will be Others, or Euron, or Bloodraven, or Hot Pie. Aegon can become a casualty or unsuspected winner in this conflict.
  5. According to the spoilers from the show, Daenerys, sooner or later, will become a mad tyrant, being true to her heritage. So it's not question about who out two of them will look like a bad guy/girl, but how much in "The Game of Thrones" Aegon's role in the books D&D have joined with Jon's in the show. It's possible that it's Aegon will be banging his aunt and later on will kill her. By the way, guys, there is a big chance that in the WOW Gerold Dayne will steal the sword Dawn, flee from the forces of Doran Martell and, later on, join Aegon's side, possible his new kingsguard, in the sense a parody on Arthur Dayne, Sword of the Morning.
  6. To reveal true Aegons identity, if it turns out to be false, can only Varys or Illyrio. And, for obvious reasons, they won't do that. There also possibility of Deus ex machina, when Dany would see incredible detailed dragon vision, where all the fact and evidence againt Aegon will be laid out, but I not sure that G. R.R. Martin will go that route.
  7. Why Golden Company with the Blackfyres never tried to forge their own kingdom in Essos? If some corsairs managed to do this with The Basilisk Isles, why a large band of professional mercenaries couldn't? Even if it wasn't their goal, still, controlled kingdom could have helped with the resources needed for the invasion of Westeros and conquest of Iron Throne.
  8. Isn't Graces like septas, who couldn't marry? Still, Malazza from the Yunkai would be a better match. After all, she's Yunkai's own Daenerys Targaryen.
  9. G. R.R. Martin told us that second Dance of Dragons gonna happen in asoiaf and I'm 90% sure that "dancing" will be Aegon with Dany. So, obviously, Aegon is pretty big deal for the series. I agree that when Dany will actually get to the Westeros, there will be beloved king Aegon, under whom many faction united. In this scenario, it's Daenerys with her horde of dothrakis, army of eunuchs and ironborns, will be viewed as foreign invader and usurper. I'm also pretty sure that Varys kidnapped Tyrek Lannister during the riots in the KL, for his 4D chess political strategy, and later on recruited him. After all, considering that Varys killed Kevan in TDwD, which shortened line of succession of lordship of Casterly Rock even farther. Now, all what is stand between Tyrek and grand lordship is Cersei, her bastard children, Martyn and his sister Janei. If status of Cersei's children will become known and with Kevan's younger kids something happens, Tyrek could become a new lord of the Lannisters and the Westerlands. The same goes with the Stormlands. I don't actually believe that Jon Connington can become a grand lord of the Stormlands, more likely that Varys will try to get Edric Storm from Lys, true born son of the "beloved" Robert Baratheon. After all, Varys originate from Lys and likely has some spy network there. So, by putting Edric under the banner of Aegon, he will win stormlords. The Vale and the Reach are tricky. If in the Vale Varys has an agent Shadrich "the Mad Mouse", who can snatch ether Robert Arryn or Sansa Stark, than in the Reach all what Aegon has mysterious "friends" of the members of the GK. If it's some Rowans or Peakes, then it's doesn't help much Aegon's cause, but if it's Randyll Tarly himself, who grew tired of his incompetent overlord, things will get pretty interesting. So, Aegon has a very good chance to do what even Dany with dragons couldn't - unite Westeros, or at least most of it. Aegon also led his men into assault of the Storm End, it's takes a bravery, something Dany never did or had. Also, statistically likely (80%) that Aegon is Targaryen : He a real Aegon, son of Rhaegar and Elia; Descendant of Aerion Brightflame; Bastard son of Rhaegar and Ashara Dayne; Twin brother of Jon; Blackfyre (*_*)
  10. I'm certain that there wasn't raping. Lord Jon ordered so. Some girls, maybe, were persuaded to a completely consensual sexual relationship. Aegon will probably survived in TWoW. After all, it's silly to kill character who was just introduced in the series, not to mention all that hype and Varys with Illyrio standing behind him.
  11. Everyone knows that Aegon is an awesome and charismatic character, but not many readers know that he also a better ruler and leader than Daenerys and Jon combine. What a make character/person a good, even potential, ruler and leader? Obviously the most important thing it's education. What we know about Aegon's education? That is quite impressive. I'm sure that most of Westerosi don't get half as good education. He also received practical skills, which makes him more independent and more closer to peasant class people, as well as more appealing to them, and knowledge of the multiple languages will surely helps with foreign diplomacy. Heavy education in faith of the Seven and religiosity of Aegon is huge matter on it's on. Absolute majority of Westerosi is religious and most follow Faith of the Seven religion. As we know Jon is following old Gods, who is worshipped mostly in the North and Daenerys, wherever dark Gods of death and destruction she follows, unlikely would be popular in Meereen or Westeros. Oh yes, Daenerys. What little Daenerys have been taught by Viserys, didn't helped her much considering that her kingdom Meereen is in the war with the entire Slaver's Bay, has huge economic and epidemic problems, not to mention social and cultural catastrophes. She failed at all fronts. Turns out not all problems can be dealt with dragonfire and an army of eunuchs. She still has support of the liberated slaves, but for how long? Maybe I'm too harsh on her, after all she is only 16. the same age Greta Thunberg was when became famous and quite similar to the Daenerys in character . Of course, if Greta had dragons, she would have solved all the world problems... Or would she? Not all the problems can be fixed right now, for some it takes several tomorrows and even years. What about Jon, you would ask? Ah yes, Jon. He had good education, as good as he could have get in the North, which helped him get into position of power when he became Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, an elite Order of murderers, robbers and traitors, with some occasional volunteers. In this company he was, indeed, the best of the worst. Still, props should be given when they earned : Jon managed to make peace and recruit desperate free folk who was running for their lives from the Others. For the majority of the Night's Watch Jon made a bunch of questionable decisions and Jon's determination to to desert from the Order and brake his oath, over some lunatic insult him, was the final straw which broke the direwolfs back and he was executed by his fellow brother. Which also, by the way, was completely by the word of the law. What else make a good ruler? Well, it's a team. Loyal, competent team of professionals. This also the place where Aegon shines : lord Jon Connington, Haldon, Lemora, ser Rolly Duckfield, Franklyn Flowers, Lysono Maar, lord Laswell Peake with brothers and, the most important, Illyrio Mopatis and THE VARYS. Any ruler or leader who has full loyalty and support of the Spider, are 10 steps ahead of any other. The only person who close to Aegon and, likely, to betray him is Harry Strickland. Still, at least he isn't stabbed in the back and front by his brothers (Jon) or has entire list of prepared prophesied betrayals (Dany).
  12. In any way, Aegon doesn't go to Daenerys or even plans to, which means that he isn't a mummer's dragon from Quaithe's prophecy. The same goes for the Jon "Griff'' Connington - he isn't griffin. More likely that it's Dany will go to them. There is four possible explanation to this dilemma : Aegon isn't a mummer's dragon from Quaithe's prophecy, just like I wrote higher. Quaithe are lying to Dany, so she would develop some kind of paranoia and see enemies everywhere and don't trust anyone, in order to create the same mad person like her father was (or Dany from the final season of the show). Quaithe is incompetent prophet. From where she gaining her prophecies anyway? Shade of the evening is showing what you want to see; Dragon/Wolf dreams are difficult to interpret, just like R'hllor's fire visions. It's a plot hole which George R. R. Martin didn't know how to fix.
  13. I agree that Southron Ambitions theory is kinda shaky, but on other hand second/third sons don't really have much of the prospects in the terms of marriage. At best they would marry some daughter of vassal lord and at worst will go to the night watch. Even Stannis, brother to the king Robert and a lord himself, married just a niece of Lord Alester Florent. P.S. For the same reason, if Robert's Rebellion never happened, there is no real possibility for marriage Ned and Ashara, not to mention there was no chemistry alchemy there. So, take this NedxAshara fanfiction fans. Maybe it's like what happened with the main line of the house Wettin recently : head of the house, Michael, hated his cousin's banker son so much, the only young heir, that he disinherited him and then, allegedly, set up very suspicious horse riding accident. So now main line surely will die out.
  14. I find it strange that Jon Arryn took care about everyone's marriages, except his own heir Elbert, who was at least in his 20(s), but likely in his 30(s). Robert was supposed to get married to Lyanna, just like Brandon to Catelyn, which would have tied North, Strormlands and Riverlands together. But what about the Vale? I originally thought that Jon planned to marry off Elbert to Lysa Tully, when she would had got little older, but then I saw discussions in : Where general consensus that Hoster Tully and Tywin Lannister planed marry Jaime and Lysa, before Jaime was taken into the Kingsguard by Aerys. If there hasn't been Robert's Rebellion, highest titled bride would have been Cersei Lannister, but I don't think that Elbert is a better "match" then Rhaegar Tywin was talking about. There was also Ashara Dayne, but, although she is a beautiful and all, and Daynes are ancient house, I don't think that Jon would ever considered that for Arryns. So, what Jon Arryn planned in regards to his heir Elbert, what do you think?
  15. My guess is that Ice was made by some valyrian smiths in Valyria and pretty sure that magic was used in forging. It was, probably, one of last weapon orders made by masters of valyrian steel before the doom, considering the timeline.
