    The Back of a Westeros Milk Carton

    Nice OP now that it's cleaned up. One correction eeds to be made, though... Raynald was not Robb's squire, he was a knight. You are confusing him with his kid brother Rollam who is alive because he was not at the Red Wedding. It jumped to my attention because Raynald is my favorite minor chracter and I rather hope he miraculously survived.

    You could add a degree of likelyhood that these guys are dead or alive. As an aside, it's amusing to me that this MIA list is from the perspective of the reader, not that of those characters that would actually be putting the pictures on the milk cartons if they could. Because right now Selmy and Belwas would be launching an Amber alert for Dany if they could, for example!
  6. Without delving in speculations about obtuses prophecy and instead relying on the narrative, I will ask this: Arya can't be everywhere and kill everyone and there's only so much pages left in the saga. If Martin writes about Arya killing Petyr, he's not using her for something else in the meantime. Who seriously thinks Martin will 'waste' Arya for a few chapters of stalking and killing Petyr Baelish, a man she barely knows by sight and currently resides far away of Winterfell or King's Landing, her natural poles of attractions? What payoff does that provide? Martin is not writing fan fiction for the subset of readers who specifically hate Petyr, dislike/are indifferent to Sansa and love Arya. He has a greater tale to tell, and as of ADwD I fail to see how having Arya out of the blue killing Petyr will serve a greater narrative purpose. It does not strike me as a particularly valuable use of a character.
