    What would Robb do if Ned took the Black?

    We obviously disagree on what Joff is willing to do. If one accepts the scenario that LF and the Tyrrells poisoned him at his wedding feast it would appear that some of the people around him thought he was too dangerous to let live.

    Joffrey is the same guy who shot a man through the throat with a crossbow for demonstrating against the lack of food in King's Landing. He has no regard for life or the proprieties, just his own wishes.

    They could do the exchange at The Twins.

    a request to the "Melders"

    Because it turns into fan fic rather than an actual discussion of the books. There are forums for fan fic.

    a request to the "Melders"

    It's actually against the rules here to bring the show in. IMO it should be extended to Preston Jacobs and the Green Hand crew, and other non-book sources.

    History indicates that a Stark going to King's Landing to seek a reconciliation with the King is doomed. Joff is a treacherous as Aerys was, so that's a pretty sure thing.

    Targayens exile based on jacobites

    The Targs were more like the Plantagenets than the Stuarts.

    Ned wasn’t a true Stark

    More likely Varys was the orchestrator. I think Arys's mind wouldn't handle the implications. If Varys was part of Blackfyre rebellion #6 and working to weaken the Targ main line he might well have persuaded Aerys that Rickard was plotting a takeover to goad Aerys into acts what would foment a rebellion. It wouldn't matter which side won; it would weaken the realm to make the takeover easier for the Blackfyres.

    Sansa and Cognitive Dissonance

    For every Sansa-hater there's a Tyrion-hater. It sort of evens out.

    Sansa and Cognitive Dissonance

    When I see "merlin" I think of the wizard. And if you're familiar with the Earthsea books the Archmage is known as Sparrowhawk. Coincidence? I think not.

    Are There any Unicorns in Skagos?

    And what would an oversized goat add to the story, anyhow?

    Are There any Unicorns in Skagos?

    If there are dragons why can't there be unicorns? Unicorns are a lot less unlikely than dragons, which defy the laws of physics.

    What will Florents do when Shireen is roasted?

    We don't know that Shireen will be burned. It's speculation at this point. Melisandre certainly wants to, but it's pretty certain that Stannis would oppose it. Would Selyse go against Melisandre? How much is she a mother and how much a religious nut? OTOH, the Wildlings would be happy to see the greyscale carrier eliminated. What did the Florents do when Stannis burned Alester? Nothing. Why would they act differently for Shireen?

    Sansa and Cognitive Dissonance

    Interesting points. Not a huge number of eagles in use, then? In GRRM's world the number of noble titles is severely truncated: no duke, earls, counts or viscounts, etc, so the St. Albans formula might not work.

    Honor and starks

    Jaime Lannister: "Honor is a horse." Sandor Clegane: "A knight has no honor." The Kingsguard, on paper the most honorable guys around, stood around with their thumbs up their butts while Aerys tortured Rhaella. In the world GRRM has given us honor is much overrated and underpracticed.
