If you could change the events of one chapter

Recommended Posts

If you could change what happened in one chapter of your choosing, what would you change and why?

Me, I would have Walder Frey let Robb go in exchange for his grandson's life.

About 15 (?) years b4 death of king Robert Lannisters killed, sacked and raped a lot of people at King's Landing. In my version gold cloaks remember all those people and decide to purge all those rapid lions and their puppets.

"Yet every night, some time before the dawn, Drogo would come to her tent and wake her in the dark, to ride her as relentlessly as he rode his stallion. He always took her from behind, Dothraki fashion, for which Dany was grateful; that way her lord husband could not see the tears that wet her face, and she could use her pillow to muffle her cries of pain. When he was done, he would close his eyes and begin to snore softly and Dany would lie beside him, her body bruised and sore, hurting too much for sleep. Day followed day, and night followed night, until Dany knew she could not endure a moment longer. She would kill herself rather than go on, she decided one night …"

I'd change this into gentle, respectful loving sex, that Dany always says enthusiastically yes to and he doesn't hurt her like this and ignore her during it. It still would have not been truly her choice of course, but a lot better. Bad enough to be sold into marriage at age 13 imo.

Stannis not killing Renly. This would turn everything better for everyone not named Lannister.

I'll second this. If Stannis and Renly could've reached an accommodation, this would've been a comparatively happy ending for Westeros until the dragons come.

Ned doesn't tell Cersei he knows about the paternity of her children, even though that exchange was pretty great.

Does Ned still tell Robert in this scenario?

Yes. Ned's concern was that Robert would have the children killed, but I think he still had enough sway over him to stop him from doing that.

Ah, thanks. I wasn't sure if your first idea had also involved changing this other part.

Maybe Ned does, if Ned were to indulge in some fruit eating and lady watching with Robert as Robert wanted him to do on the way down from Winterfell. :leer:

Ned should have listened carefully to what Arya told him about the conversation between Varys and Illyrio. He could have checked by asking Arya to show him the place where she saw the two men.

Ned would have stayed North and refused Robert’s offer of being his Hand. 
 

Also this is before the events in AGOT but Elia, Aegon and Rhaenys would have gone to Dorne  instead of King’s Landing  when they left Dragonstone.

Jaime Lannister decides that, actually, he’s not going to let Littlefinger just ride off while he accosts Ned and his men
