    Just finished the chapter where Rob and the rest are arriving for Edmureís wedding. Itís somewhat stressful knowing what is about to happen and expecting it to happen at every Cat chapter.

    Remember the game the Walders played? And how the word mayhaps means you don't have to follow an oath? Welp.

    Also shout out to Ryman Frey who says "If you would follow me, my father awaits". A reminder that his father is Stevron Frey and not Lord Walder Frey...

    I knew there was something important from the game the Walders played, but I couldnít remember what. You saved me from looking for that section again.

    Just finished Joffreyís death last night. All hail King Tommen.

    Edit: I liked all the bits where Joffrey talks about Robert. You can tell in some ways he looked up to and respected the man he thought was his father at least in terms of the kind of king that Joffrey should be.

    I also enjoy hearing Stannis refer to Robert. I may have mentioned it in this thread previously but I'm convinced the only reason he disliked Ned was because he was jealous.

    Serious question:

    I haven't really read much of 2 during this reread. But, those of you reading with fresh eyes/those of you who have read the series many times?

    In AGoT Ned intends for someone he trust in his household to take Arya and Sansa to Dragonstone and only show the direwolf once they get in sight of the castle. Knowing how Stannis is, do you think he would have listened to Ned (or his friend, by proxy), protected his children, and ultimately allied with him?

    I really do think he would. Stannis isn't a warm man, and he didn't love Ned, but Ned was willing to recognize his claim. Stannis (at least so far) isn't cruel for the sake of cruelty, and I don't think (at this point in the series) he would have hurt Arya or Sansa. If Ned has defied Stannis, however, I can see him meting out justice to them on Ned's behalf.

    Yep, Stannis and Ned would definitely have been allies. Given how desperate Stannis is to become bffs with Jon when they meet I kind of think he wants his own Ned and would've been thrilled to have the OG... though he never would have said so.

    At the very least, it would have given a lot of credibility to his claim vis a vis Joffrey being a bastard. Most people respected Ned Stark, even the ones who didn't like him. Strictly for a strategic standpoint, Ned would have been an extremely powerful ally.

    I really liked any of Stannisí references to his brothers. I feel like all 3 Baratheons ruling together would have made for a different and better kingdom.

    Either way, I agree that Stannis and Ned would have been allies. Really, all Stannis seems to want is to be recognized and acknowledged. Heís jealous of the relationship Ned had with Robert, and that seems to be his only issue with Ned.

    I also donít think that (without Melisandreís influence) Stannis would harm Nedís children even if Ned was against Stannis after the children would be there. He cares about justice and the letter of the law, but I think he seems very fair. Stark children might become hostages at worst, but I donít see Stannis punishing them for the slights of their father.

    Iíve now started A Feast for Crows. Iíve only read the prologue and the first chapter with The Prophet, but Iím enjoying it so far. Iím a bit fuzzy on what happens from this point on from the show for whatever reason, but Iím sure as I get into it Iíll still not be surprised by too much.

    A Storm of Swords is probably my favorite so far. It had a lot more of the big moments and deaths than I thought it would going in. It also reminded me of Lady Stoneheart, and Iím pretty interested in finally learning more about that situation.

    Did you spot the return of Jaqen H'Ghar in the Feast for Crows prologue?

    A wolf with a trout in its mouth? That would be silly!
