Mithras Posted November 22, 2013 Share Posted November 22, 2013 Majority of the people are obsessed with BR/Bran/Euron etc. warging into various people and doing some crazy things. there are hundreds of posts suggesting all kinds of crackpot ideas. Of course some of the people are not serious when they say X warged into Y and did Z while W was a secret Targ wearing the face of Q. But there a lot more people who really think that warging into people is very likely. First of all, warging into human is a shitty phrase. THERE IS NO WARGING INTO HUMANS. There are skinchangers who can wear the skins of animals. Wargs are the special kind of skinchangers who wear the skin of wolves. You can warg into your wolf. But you skinchange into a raven or in other words you can wear the skin of an eagle. Secondly, the only case where we see a skinchanger slipping into a human is Bran/Hodor. This is not a general case because Hodor is some kind of a pet of Bran. He is half-witted and knows Bran all his life. There is already a strong connection between them. Even so, Bran is not very comfortable in skinchanging into Hodor. Although Hodor is retreating to a private place when Bran is in him, he is aware of what is going on around. It is the same for the animals too. You are sensing what the animal senses and you can give orders to the animal but the animal is awake all the time, they dont black out when skichanged. Therefore, if some perople are "warged", then they surely notice what is going on. You cannot possess them as it happens in Supernatural. Varamyr, already a powerful skinchanger, tried to skinchange into a spearwife but the woman got crazy. Even the snow bear, which has a simpler mind than a woman, goes crazy when Varamyr wears her skin. Not all of the animals are for skinchanging. Wearing the skins of certain animals is hard even for the most powerful skinchangers. Humans are the most difficult. Even if any characters succeeded somehow to wear the skin of a human, he/she most likely would have driven the person mad. If that person remained sane, he/she certainly would have remembered the person inside her and let the readers know about it. In short, it is not happening. BR does not "warg" into humans. Bran does not "warg" into humans except Hodor, who is more like an animal than a human. Euron does not "warg" into humans. He is not a skinchanger anyway.
