      for a period of time there were smaller kingdoms who got gobbled up by other larger kingdoms, then all of them had reached their natural borders by that point anyways so things probably didnt change much

      I mean, that's not really true. I don't care much to sperg out about why but GoT lore doesn't have 8000 years of stagnation. Aside from the north, which is moronic.

      I think about this too. Part of the trouble is George establishes the houses that came to power during the conquest (Baratheon, Tyrell, Greyjoy, Tully) and the houses that retained power (Lannister, Stark, Arryn, Martell). All well and good, these are the players of the current events and we hear about them in Aegon's Conquest. HOWEVER! As the lore adds on, it becomes weird. There are two massive civil wars, the Dance and the Blackfyre Rebellion. You would think because these are, you know, CIVIL WARS, we'd see the major houses take opposite sides and ultimately we might find that some fall, similar to the Gardeners and Durrandons. The Baratheons out right choose the wrong side in the Dance yet they continue on. And it's because in retrospect the ASoIaF books already establish who the players are, so George, going into Fire and Blood, has to tip toe around the details. 'Oh the Tyrells were actually neutral while their VASSALS the Hightowers staged a coup and fought a civil war for dominion of the continent. Anyways, that's how the Tyrells stuck around.' I don't know, I love this world, but it's weird to me how houses scrape behind when our history saw dynasties obliterated for poor decision making during internal crisis.

      Also, 8,000 years is outstandingly impressive for continued rule. Shit honestly belongs in Warhammer it's so metal.

      How did it ever stagnate? Prior to the houses were individual kingdoms. And when the houses took power, the Targaryens ruled loosely until a major rebellion, which entirely eliminated house Targaryen except for the three heirs. The Night's Watch was formed due to wars with the North. I don't think there was ever a period of nothing happening. No developments in the world or whatever.

    I want your you guy's thoughts on this. I read most of the series, and watched the full television adaptation (bad as it was past season 3 and a 1/2)

    Stannis seemed like the only contender who actually would fare well as king. He was a decent commander, had pure motives, wasn't exceptionally barbaric, etc. It seemed like his only flaw was the fire-priest prostitute. Not to mention that, technically, he was the next in line for the throne anyways. Ned supported him, and if he wasn't executed, I doubt that Stannis would have lost. The North would have rallied to Stannis with Ned behind him, surely. Rob was never going to make a decent king.

    I think Tywin would have led well as a second choice, but the complications of Joffree being his puppet (too unpredictable, also obviously not a king the people genuinely liked), and his strained relations with the other houses would most likely hinder his ability to manage.

    Am I an autist for reading the book and rooting for Stannis? I mean he was the sole king to come to the Night's Watch's aid. Without him the North would have been pillaged by Free Folk.

      >Rob was never going to make a decent king
      Rob would make a good king, but he was a teenager and that fricked him over. It didn't help that his mother was moronic and actively responsible for most of the north's blunders.

      Stannis is reasonable and just, but he has no charisma. Davos shows exactly why Stannis has so little support, but also why he would be a good king.
      >Am I an autist for reading the book and rooting for Stannis?
      No. As a reader, you can see Stannis at a level a normal Westerosi peasant or lord cannot, and can appreciate his strengths and accept his weaknesses.

      You’re right, the only reason Stannis lost was because GRRM screwed him over at every turn. Robert giving him Dragonstone instead of Storms End meaning he had about 1000 soldiers instead of 30,000 to fight the war, Renly taking a shit on 8,000 years of dynastic succession just because he thinks being a King seems cool, Tyrion pulling every bullshit move to win the Blackwater combined with the Florents being moronic etc.

      Stannis is clearly written as the best option as king, the only reason most people don’t like him is because the TV show runners hated him for killing their token gay character and because they admitted to not understanding him as a character.

      It's all Renly's fault. The little homosexual shouldn't have tried to usurp Stannis' rightful claim, and had there forces combined they would've taken KL almost immediately based on Stannis almost taking it alone but being thwarted by Tryion's organised defence and the reinforcements which were Renly's army prior

    Dorne/Targaryens.

    Indeed, GRRM should’ve had the great houses change every couple of years.

    I think personally it would’ve been great if the Boltons were made more sympathetic (with Domeric replacing Ramsay) and having the Starks sort of become villains and less sympathetic. Have Robb be a little more brazen, have Jon be a bit cuckoo when revived and have Sansa be Littlefinger 2.0. Then when the Boltons are utterly demolished the reader has some sympathy for them.

      Which ones? Because they’re very different. Vic, Euron, Aeron, Theon, Asha, and Balon are all pretty great characters but couldn’t be more unique. Except Balon he’s just a moron. Victarion is also a moron but he’s a based moron so he makes up for it.

    I really liked the Tullys for what was somewhat of an afterthought house. Dramatic little dynamic with the dying regretful father, bitter estranged sister with the dark secret, lone wolf uncle and the heir who is just trying his best while being mid-20s and inexplicably not even betrothed yet, and of course Cat being the normie POV into all this. Not too over-the-top, not too boring.

      I felt so bad for Edmure after how Robb and the Blackfish treated him for beating the Lannisters instead of letting them ransack his land and rape his people for Robbs plan he didn’t even tell Edmure about.

        my headcanon is that their "plan" they bizarrely didn't tell him about never existed and it was all just a charade designed to guilt him into stitching up the frey alliance
        it honestly makes more sense that way

          It definitely makes more sense than not telling the only Great Lord to side with you your master plan when he has a key role in it. Unfortunately I think the most likely explanation is GRRM just needed to come up with a reason for Edmure to marry the Frey and worked backwards from there.
