Small Questions v. 10106

Are there any stories or notes of Prince Daemon interacting with his sons, or reacting to the "death" of Prince Viserys? I don't think I've noticed anything on my reread of F&B. I presume Daemon was presumably not that paternal, but surely he would feel something to lose one of his precious sons?

IMO it would've been good to mention his reaction when he gets t he news that Aemond has left King's Landing and that they can claim the capital. The news likely arrived around the same time and swearing to avenge his son would've fit.

Edit: particularly when you consider how paternal-ish he may have been with Nettles (I'm a much bigger fan of this than the lovers theory).

The closest we get is him promising to avenge Luke’s death.

Why did Stannis send fArya to Braavos again?

He has not. Jeyne-as-Arya is being sent to Jon Snow at the wall because "a true king pays his debts." Pretty much, Stannis promised Jon to give him Arya, so he is. She is to be escorted there by Justin Massey, who is on his way to Braavos by way of Eastwatch. He is tasked to pay for sellswords and archers to fight for Stannis.

However, it's a widely-accepted theory by most of the fandom that Jeyne-as-Arya will end up in Braavos. The theory goes that Justin, Jeyne, and company arrive at Castle Black on the tail end of Jon's death, during the sweet spot between "Jon is dead" and "Jon is alive, part 2." There are two potential backup plans: either send Jeyne with her companion, Alysanne Mormont, to the care of Queen Selyse at the Nightfort, or take her to Braavos.

There's more to be done narratively with Jeyne if she's in Braavos, so idea prevails. There's no current POV at the Nightfort and likely not to be one for some time. In comparison, her running into Arya has a lot of potential for the story and their individual development.

I disagree. Arya Bolton is arguably the most powerful person in the north. When Sansa undoubtedly hears about her, well ,

Is it just me, or, at the start of the books, is Robb a particularly good catch for anyone looking for a powerful marriage alliance?  He's heir to the North and second in line to the Riverlands.

Yes. For that reason Karstarks tried to seduce Robb. But their plan failed bc poor Alys was too young.

Theoretically yes, but nobody except for Rickard Karstark tries.

Why didn't the families just negotiate the marriage formally?

I assume that Lord Karstark thought that Robb's mother would want next lady of Winterfell to be follower of 7. After all in my head canon having a sept in Winterfell and septa teaching next generation of Starks are very radical  ideas. So it is possible that he tried to bypass her by making Robb falling love to Alys.

Jeyne won't make it to the Wall...

"You had best run back to your room, little sister. Septa Mordane will surely be lurking. The longer you hide, the sterner the penance. You'll be sewing all through winter. When the spring thaw comes, they will find your body with a needle still locked tight between your frozen fingers."

Arya I, Game 7

Poor Jeyne Poole...

Just got a dumb smart question. Will there be any side effects or consequences of SummerBran and Pack eating the undead (moving even as they gorged) flesh of the Wight bear?
