For all those doubting Rickon or Brans claim, remember this. It is believed by everyone south of the Neck that Sansa is the last living Stark. She only has claim after the death of Bran and Rickon. So for southerners, Sansa is heir. She is under the control of Littlefinger, and doing nothing of her own accord, but she is heir in the eyes of the Andal kings.
To the Mandery’s the Stark boys are still alive. Bran being lost to obscurity, or being a tree, isn’t fit, so the rightful lord of Winterfell is Rickon Stark. Davos is sent to find him, and Lord Mandery promises his backing and much of the north if Davos can install Rickon as Lord Stark of Winterfell. He is hiding on Skagos and we don’t have anymore information then that on him. If he’s a cannibal or not will probably depend on if he’s on a diet of unicorns or prey Shaggydog catches. Cannibal or no, he’s still first in line over Sansa, and the Stark the North will rally behind.
Then, you have Robb’s letter sent to Howland Reed. If Robb legitimized Jon, or gave inheritance to any of his men, those people would be heir to Winterfell and the North. As Jon’s fate is rather vague after ADWD it is hard to say what could happen, but Jon could side with Stannis which he would then give Jon or whoever Jon appoints Lord of Winterfell those rights.
I’m expressing an opinion of mine, Sansa will never hold the North. If she knew her brothers were alive, she would never take their rights from them. She might marry Harry the Heir, but she herself will never claim the North for the Arryns or the Starks.
I have the right to voice my opinions, if you don’t like them, ignore them. If you agree you can like them. I’ll tag them how I please, and I’ll say what I want. Sansa is not Queen. She is not fit to rule. Bran and Rickon are questionable as well, but they have the claim so it doesn’t matter. Sansa is not the Queen in the North. She is not the Lord or Lady of Winterfell. She is a Stone right now. Nothing more.
She isn’t anything more than a bastard right now. Littlefinger may have his plans, but Bran is the rightful heir to Winterfell and all titles coming with it. That’s only if Robb didn’t name a successor other than Bran( Jon, Blackfish, etc…). Sansa isn’t a Queen. Isn’t a Lady or Lord. She is only the protector of her maidenhead currently. She is not the Queen in the North. And I doubt she ever will be.
Don’t get me wrong I like Sansa, but she is no more fit to be Queen then Cercei or Robb, King.
Stop it. Just no.
It’s Dragon Steel.
It can kill/fight off the wights and White Walkers.
It is forged through magic, particularly Dragon Blood magic.
Lastly, a new sword forged from Daenerys’s dragons may be made before the end of the series.
So at last I’m done. Challenge complete. With this I have completed the Song of Ice and Fire thirty day challange. It’s been a blast. Hopefully I can keep making posts that people like about the series or just some of the other stuff I like.
I wish I could answer this after A Dream of Spring, but I’d need a time machine. So far my favorite completed book is A Storm of Swords. I’m currently reading A Dance with Dragons so I don’t want to say it’s my favorite, but it probably will be. Until Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring.
As for the tv series…… I don’t know. I think I have to go with Fire and Blood. The episode after Ned’s false confession on the Sept of Baelor is one that really sets the stage for season 2. Some of the best moments with characters are when they learn he’s been beheaded. I’m not sure if Jon’s scene with Aemon is in this episode, but it was one of my favorite moments when I first watch the series and still is now.
So there. My favorite book and episode. Hope you enjoyed the challenge.
Just finished this lovely book.
I gotta say I love what’s happening to Cersei. I’ve wanted her to over reach herself ever since she took the Regency.
I’m very happy that Jaime has come around to being such a respectable guy. No longer the oathbreaker of the past, but he’s actually living up to Oathkeeper’s heavy name.
Brinnae of Tarth. Y U only say one word.
And Sam…Oh Sam…. Now that you’ve tasted the forbidden fruit what will you do when you have to give it away. Not only that but if Pate is alive at the end of the book and the Prologue is really an “Epilogue” what fate awaits our chubby novice Maester?
Also, my mind is blown about Alayne Stone’s engagement.
So much more happened but I just don’t even have time to map it all out. Great fucking book.
I need to go out and purchase the next one Post-haste.
