    The role of forgiveness

    This is not the story of forgiveness. George R.R. Martin might intend to send us a lesson on the consequences of revenge. Daenerys Targaryen is the lead character and the only one who has been known to set aside her feelings towards people in order to make things right. That will inspire the slaves to make an effort to forgive their old masters. How much will that affect the family feud that has been going on for many generations in Westeros? The Martells, Arya Stark, Cersei Lannister, Walder Frey, Stannis Baratheon, and Roose Bolton are not gonna care what's right. They want payback for the wrongs done to them and they want their status back. I don't expect Stannis to back down on the face of a superior claim. I don't see much hope for Westeros. The feudal system is not going to survive the long night.
  2. Ned, Robert, and Jon Arryn made decisions that ended up killing hundreds of thousands of people to replace the Targaryens with a Baratheon regime that ultimately could not hold the kingdom together. Westeros would have been much better off even under Aerys. The Targaryens were threatened by the alliances being formed by Rickard Stark and Robert Baratheon. Such an alliance of the great houses would result in the end of the Targaryen Dynasty. War was going to happen as long as Rickard and Robert continued to pursue this alliance. It was simply something the Targaryens could never allow. Rickard, Robert, Hoster, and Jon were the villains because they were chipping away at the authority of their king. Aerys was correct in calling for the death of Robert Baratheon. He was correct to execute Brandon and Rickard. Calling for Ned to die was questionable but if Ned knew of his family's plot, yeah, he should die for treason. He was old enough to understand what was going on. A loyal young man would go to his king and expose his family's guilt.

    Population of planetos after the events of ASOIAF

    It's unlikely for the Others to make it to Essos. The continent of Westeros will take the biggest loss from the Others. Most of the people will die. The deaths in Essos will come about because the slaves will fight for freedom while the masters will fight to keep them enslaved. Most of the deaths will be the masters and those who support them. Thousands of mercenaries will die.
  4. Brandon was witnessed in the act of threatening to harm the Targaryens. That is a crime punishable by death. Obviously, Rickard was lured to KL because the king believed he was plotting. That is all the evidence needed for the time.

    Seeing the bigger bigger picture.

    What is the point of A Song of Ice and Fire? To make money for the author. To entertain the consumer. What message is the book conveying to us? That violence is bad. People focus too much on sex and ignore the violence. The priorities are not in the right order. What is the end goal? To survive is the immediate goal. To survive and make the world as good of a place as possible for as many people as possible. To think things through instead of acting on emotions.
  6. Brandon was dickhead who deserved what he got from Aerys. Jon Arryn should have executed Robert and Ned because his king ordered him to. I can't stand the Starks so you and me are not going to agree on this.
  7. Brandon's family was plotting against the king. They deserved to get punished for what they were doing. Aerys had every right to kill Rickard and Brandon.

    Stannis wrote the Pink Letter. Clydas changed it

    Clydas doesn't have the stones to do this. Stannis burned Mance. Jon killed Janos. Clydas is not going to try his luck against two very harsh men who have fickle ideas of what justice is. Ramsay Bolton wrote that letter and just about all of it is true.

    Who will be Lord Commander after Jeor and Jon were killed by mutiny?

    Ser Aliser is the most fit. I am hoping it's him. Bowen Marsh is not a bad sort but Aliser is an annointed knight with good battle skills.
  10. Would you say the same about Ned's dream of the tower of joy? It's the same thing. They were both under the influence of powerful drugs. Ned was injured and Daenerys was ill. It's a fever dream made more bizarre by the effects of the drugs. It's a mind trip.

    How destructive should the Others Invasion be?

    The invasion of the Others is supposed to cause most of the people to die. The north only has a small population. They will have to advance as far south as the capital and beyond in order to destroy most of the population. King's Landing, Casterly Rock, Highgarden, and let us hop the Vale are not safe from them. They will destroy White Harbor and Winterfell to get south. I would not quote the show. The show was run by people who had irrational fondness for the Starks and they chose to avoid destruction of Winterfell. I don't watch the show but I saw enough reviews on Youtube to see what they did on the show. I doubt it's accurate.
  12. He disrespected the king and threatened to murder the royal son of that king.

    Strangest Possible Ending

    So weed is the cure for greyscale. Stoned Men.

    Is Young Griffs invasion filler?

    Aegon will deliver what Illyrio Mopatis wanted all along. Essos and Westeros under Targaryen rule. Which is what would have happened had the children of Khal Drogo and Queen Daenerys lived. I don't think Daenerys has that much interest in going to Westeros now or she would have done it already before she loses more men to the slave masters. Aegon will rule the pitiful wreckage of Westeros while Daenerys continues her fight to free the slaves in Essos. A new Empire of the Dawn will rise in the east as soon as the darkness gives way to the dawn. I don't think there's room for Jon in the south. He will stay in the north even if R+L turns out true. He's the stone beast in the prophecy and like Lady Stoneheart he will take the road to revenge against the people who hurt his pack. It's a tragic ending for him but the pack will be together in the end. Fire brings the light but shadow fire is darkness. Jon will come back very dark from death like Catelyn. He will become Lord Stoneheart and lusts for revenge. The kingdom will be broken.

    A thought on the Iron Throne

    Good answer for the most part. The throne is the symbol of the united kingdom of westeros. The Targaryens built the kingdom with fire and iron. Those swords are tempered with Balerion's dragonfire. What will happen is going to be the mirror image of Lord of the Rings. Instead of the broken sword getting repaired the iron throne will be broken. The swords will be needed to fight the WWs. The kingdom only holds together as long as the throne is intact. People will survive but Westeros will be broken. The reader will be left wondering about the future when the story ends. This is tinfoily but maybe Aegon knew the apocalypse was coming. He built the throne to preserve these weapons for future use against the ice zombies.
