Is body swapping possible?

Recommended Posts

I know from Brans chapters it’s explained away as “well it’s Hodor” and a prologue chapter says that any actual resistance would prevent it. 

But surely there are other circumstances where it could happen? This seems to only be implying it has specific rules and is very circumstantial. For example, if you addled somebodies mind with drugs, could a warg gain entry? For example, Bloodraven feeding the paste to Bran because he wants out. Or, if the person actually wanted the warg in question to gain entry to their mind because they were tricked or trusted somebody? Or if the body was just a shell (think Xmen 3) like Drogo.

I mean the obvious candidate would be Bran but it would be quite an interesting element to bring in if a character ended up in a different body. For example, you could possess a King or a Dragonrider; assuming of course that the dragons aren’t aware of the change.

Varamyr failed warging the old Spearwife because it was too hard (she was described as tough as an old beetroot).

Likewise Bran could warg Hodor because it was easy (simple-minded and meek).

So these are our parameters for human warging.

Also consider their differences in "gift": Bran sits with 3EC in the cave and Varamyr was taught by some kind old freelance warg and wasn't invited under the hill.

True, that Wolfy wolfs blood counts for a lot. 

Could Bran become more powerful if he goes to the Gods Eye? Isn’t that like the heart of the Weirwood network? 

Also, wouldn’t warging a dragon rider be easier than warging a dragon? I mean, why couldn’t the children have got dragons to kill the First Men if they could do that?
