    Discussing the Successor Shows

    I would like to see: 1) The settling of the Iron Islands by the people west of Westeros (the Grey King/Sea Dragon/Mermaids) 2) The journeys of Nymeria and the Rhoynish invasion: with back story on the Martells and including the battle between Dragons and Water Magic 3) The journeys of Bran the Builder (descendant of Garth Greenhand by way of the Brandon of the Bloody Blade, kin of Lann the Clever (also descended from Garth Greenhand, friend of Durran Godsgrief and Elenie, builder of The Wall with the Children of the Forest and Giants, and founder of House Stark) 4) The Long Night/Battle for the Dawn (Others/White Walkers/the Last Hero/Azor Azhai) 5) The first settlement of the First Men/the War with the Children (the Hammer of Dorne)/The first settlements of the 7 kingdoms (the first Artys Arryn and his Falcon, the first Casterly/the children of Garth Greenhand/the first River Kings :Mudd or Fisher) 6) The Andal Invasion 7) Doom of Valyria 8) Aegon's Conquest 9) Night's King/ King Beyond the Wall

    You're Ned: find some marriage betrothals for your kids

    Bran - a maiden from the mountain clans, like Liddle or Flint. Unless - he marries Shireen (who is Heiress of Dragon Stone and in line for Storms End and the Throne) Rickon - a Mormont Maiden, Jon - a fellow noble bastard (Joy Hill, Mya Stone) or a Frey

    Arya has several intriguing possibilities. Quentin Martell, second in line to Sun Spear, would help heal relations with Dorne, and give Arya a place in Dorne where women can fight and rule and be unladylike. If these betrothals occur far enough before GOT - SweetRobin is heir to the Vale of Arryn (which also has a history of ruling Ladies); he's the son of Ned's friend/foster father/ hand of the King, Ned was partially raised in the Vale and Lysa is Cat's sister. Arya is good at math and other ruling qualities and he could benefit from a strong woman guiding him. Of course this is contingent on Jon getting SweetRobin away from Lysa and to the North for fostering before getting murdered. Also, of interest is The on, Heir to the Iron Islands, would help bind The on and the Iron Islands to the Greenlands/ and the North and help Theon consider the Starks true family. The Iron Islands seem to have fewer rules on ladylike behavior and Arya has a strong enough personality to survive there. Of course this is contingent on a gradual tricky reintroduction of The on to the Iron Is!ands from a position of leverage and strength.

    With that in mind, Robb should marry a Northern Maiden: Alys Karstark or Wylla Manderly. Sands should marry Tommen (assuming Ned meets the two boys first and sees how cruel Jjoffrey is. Tommen is a royal match to Ned's best friends son and second in line to the Iron Throne and Paramount of the Storm lands and Paramount of Westerlands. He would strengthen ties to Lannister and Baratheon and the Throne and together they would have a potential place, if he didn't inherit, in Storms End, Casterly Rock, Winter fell, or River run

    I think it would benefit the Paramount houses to alternate. One generation have the heir marry one of their vassals (while attempting to marry his sister to an another kingdom's influential or paramount or royal house. The next generation would reverse that with the heir making an outside alliance and at least one girl strengthening connections inside their kingdom .
