Their literature board has the "Jatin" pairing on there too..there was a 13 page thread about it the other day. I was thinking "Sorry, but Jon doesn't give me any Renly or Loras vibes; it's not gonna happen."
Jon and Mel have an interesting dynamic, to say the least. There's a lot of foreshadowing in his chapters that he's going to 'die' and that Mel hints at her being useful to him when he's in dire straits. She seems fond of him. Also, Stannis tends to use a lot of his dryness towards Jon a lot but it's mostly because he's trying to see what Jon is made of since he's a 17 year old LC. I actually think Stannis respects him.
Oh, and I can't be the only one who thinks Stannis has some of the most unintentionally hilarious lines in the series. He's sooooo serious and dry but I tend to laugh when I read some of the shite he says.
ETA: I rewatched the Throne trailer from season 1 (long time ago it seems like now), and Jon is the ONLY Stark 'kid' that's in the trailer....very interesting. Plus Ghost is with him...This trailer (back from before season 1 began) basically confirms it all. Jon is going to become a 'player'/main character.
Pure crackpottery here but I think Jon is going to accept his warging abilities and hone them in TWoW. Why else show him with GHOST next to the IRON Throne while voiceover Ned says "You might not have my name, but you have my blood!?!?" David and Dan certainly laid it on thick with this promo. Either that or I'm completely over-analyzing Jon's role/endgame in this series
I feel like such a nerd now... Iron Throne preview from Season 1
