Along with reading Cersei going bat shite crazy and the Jaime chapter I think the Dornish parts were some of my favorite parts of AFFC even on my initial read through. But I was so disappointed with that book on my first read through after a five year wait that anything totally different probably stood out a bit more.

The system denied him his chance at love, coerced him into the most embarrassing situation of his life and claimed his innocence all in one day. Not to mention that the system also likely robbed him of what would've been his first born child.

He's pissed and anger is his main motivation. Although he has managed to control the flames of his rage and used them to temper his own personal blade. He has nothing to lose and he's already lost the only thing he ever truly wanted. So he's content to wait and watch the men who controlled the system scurry around like roaches with the lights on.

He is the anti-varys. Varys wants what is good for the realm but what he really means is he wants what is going to keep the system running as it is meant to. Little finger only wants to destroy.


we're on the same page. we've preached this throughtout the 200 pages

I really love LF. Definitely my favorite character

Has anyone played out at least in their own head what the final alliances will be.

I know LF controls the Vale, and is still Lord Paramount over the Riverlands. Add that to the fact that he is trying to marry Sansa to Hardyng to reclaim the North.

I see Dorne siding with Aegon and the golden company. The wildcard to me is what the Tyrells ultimate fate will be.

Jon's only priority for the time being is defending the Realm from the Others, not taking the Iron Throne, so the Watch will support him. Jon will get to the Iron Throne by saving the realm, not conquering it.

Where do you guys see the Others coming into play? Will their be an all out war with them or will they just stay like they are now picking them apart a few at a time?

All out war. I see the Wall falling at the end of WoW and the Others will begin their march south.

They'll take out a branch of them. Tom O Sevens is in Riverrun, and its not like it will be difficult to stage a mutiny there and let the rest of the Brothers in to kill all the Freys there. I think that will happen pretty close to the beginning of the novel.

Yes... I buy all of this. You have definitely taken LF deeper than I could have with only one read.

And it all makes perfect sense if you figure LF is responsible for Ned's head to come off(has this been decided/ discussed?) I know in the books Tyrion was attempting to figure who made the decision to take Ned's head.

- Jorah Mormont

- House Lannister
- House Clegane
- {{House Frey}}- Almost entirely butchered by Sansa Stark and Petyr Baelish's forces
- {{House Bolton}}- Roose killed by Manderly Troops; Ramsay taken at the Wall

I see it a little more tighter than that...

Varys vs LF vs Tyrion then the "pawns"

--Cersei(Varys) and all the alliances with Lannister and Aegon Targaryen.
--Sansa(Little Finger) and all the alliances with Stark(North/ Vale/ Riverlands)
--Dany(Tyrion) and unsullied, former slaves, 2nd Sons et al(I like the greyjoy navy as shark says)

What I don't know is where Dorne fits in this but I'll bet Dany.

But ultimately in the end Jon blows it all up and visualize a confrontation with Sansa after her beating Cersei in the "Game" and her being killed by him for a peace/ end.

It would be very sweet indeed to see a Targaryen ruling Westeros and Essos. In my opinion House Blackfyre is pure Targaryen as Dameons parents were both Targaryen, so the line started pure. Hell in my opinion that have a better claim than the last of the Targaryen kings.

So whatever Aegon is, Rhaegars son or a Blackfyre he is the rightful heir. Would love to see Jon and him join forces.

Where does Arya come into the end?

I bet she kills every last Lannister, Frey, Bolton and all of Joffery's small council.
