Daemon The Black Dragon Posted February 26, 2019 Share Posted February 26, 2019 2 hours ago, Ferocious Veldt Roarer said: Other reason that would still keep the story both compelling and logical? Nope, there's not. The "they just followed orders, nothing to see here, move on" variant makes it all bland and irrelevant, and I reject it simply because GRRM is not a shitty writer. (Lazy, though... that's another story). Apples to oranges. Willis Fell wasn't three knights, who had lot of possibilities open for them, like splitting forces (Ser Willis physically couldn't). We don't have a POV character remembering Willis Fell boasting about how incredibly proud he was of his assignment. We don't know if there had been a situation when Aegon II was deprived of KG protection and Ser Willis was aware of that status quo. And Ser Willis is a footnote in tie-in material, not some legendary hero worshiped by a few central characters of the books. So, apples and dragons, really. Nothing else can be compelling or logical to you besides the 3 KG crowned a infant as their King. Not swearing a vow to protect Lyanna and the baby no matter, not abandoning Lyanna and a trueborn baby who are members of the Targaryen royal family and etc. Anything other then King baby Jon is bland and irrelevant to you, really? Do you feel it takes away from Jon's story if he wasn't crowned King as a baby? Does it take anything away from the last stand of the 3 KG, if they didn't crown Jon King? Willis Fell is the closet example of the KG at the ToJ we have, no? He never returned to Aegon ll and never abandoned Jaehaera after Aegon ll death and never crowned Jaehaera as his Queen. I used Willis Fell as a example when someone said that KG don't follow a dead Kings orders and KG go to their choosen King after their former King dies. What member of the KG at the ToJ was boosting about how proud he was of his assignment and who's POV is it in? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
