-His bookish nature often seen in Targaryens
Samwell Tarly is into books when the rest of his family clearly isn't, so I don't really see it as true.
-His boyhood dreams of Dragons
I'm just thinking that's more prophesy. I do think he'll ride a dragon eventually.
-Varys and Illyrio's unexplained loyalty and friendship to Tyrion
They're not loyal or really friends with Tyrion. They just know they can use Tyrion to their advantage. He's intelligent, resourceful, his family despises him, he's greatly underestimated, aspires for greatness, knows a ton about dragons, and they could offer him Casterly Rock if he'll take down his remaining family.
-It would get him off the hook as a kinslayer
Which would be bull shite.
And who are the first three chapters from in A Dance With Dragons?.... Tyrion, Daenerys, and Jon.
I'd say its more the fact that each of them accidentally killed their mother when coming out of the womb.
