RLJ has been so propagated by the internet and the fandom and then 'confirmed' by the tv show fan fic knockoff. Could Mr Martin have really been that confident when he started the tale that the very subtle clues he dropped about Jon were enough that he had sufficiently pointed readers in the RLJ direction without commiting the story to R+L=J? I just don't think in a universe without the internet that a theory of Jon's secret Targ heritage would have caught on so there wouldn't have been any widespread shock or reveal when it came out that it was a red herring. It wouldn't have provided any cover. Well now's not the moment to rehash all the old arguments, especially about the mummers' version, but suffice to say that the "fan fic knockoff" enthusiastically propagated the theory and then fell flat on its face [to the anguish and distress of said fans] when nothing happened Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
