Varys in AGoT was a totally different character with still unknown motives. If I had to guess, I would assume that this original Varys was the equivalent if Pryrates from Memory, Sorrow & Thorn who was a mysterious priest and advisor to king. He was secretly trying to revive the Night's King equivalent in that story. Perhaps that is why Varys wanted the Dothraki invasion: to start a war of attrition and made the Realm bleed so that the invasion of the Others would be easier. This sits well with rather blatant clues in AGoT implying that Varys was a sorcerer. Yea, this is pretty much how I feel as well, but as stated above certain things were clearly altered in the writing. At the very least it flows more natural than most series.
