God. Damn.

If Stannis stays that awesome, he can have the Iron Throne.

Sweet, thanks for posting this, I'll check it out later tomorrow when I finally finish A Dance With Dragons (f'cking loving this book by the way).

I knew I liked Stannis for a reason. Lately I have felt that both Stannis and Jon will survive. Stannis as King and Jon as the Lord of Winterfell.

As long as it's not Dany, I'm not even picky anymore. I seriously cannot stand that little pill.

I feel Dany is going to bite it or she is going to realize she doesn't want to rule. If she realizes she doesn't want to rule than it would probably fall to Jon or Stannis.

I have read all the books, all the Dunk and Egg stories, own both Seasons of Game of Thrones, spent way to much time on Westeros.org, and own the map book.

Jon definitely will pull through his situation. He has Ghost and a Red Priestess. He also has a lot of Wildling and Nights Watch friends that should come to his aid immediately. After being backstabbed by his brothers and possibly 'dying', Jon probably won't be a Crow anymore.

Stannis should survive his battle in Winds of Winter. The Manderly's are going to to turn on Ramsay and the Freys as soon as the battle is about to begin.

I might just put down the book if Stannis is killed. It is amazing how he started out as an unlikable character to the favorite among readers.

Anyone who thinks Renly would have been a better king needs a kick in the head. Renly would have been a terrible king. The Tyrrels would probably have bump him off as soon he produces an heir. If he could produce an heir.

I always liked Stannis more than Renly or even Robb. I liked Robb, but mainly because he was a Stark. I think Stannis is a better leader than both Renly and Robb. Although, Renly would be a far better figurehead...

I think Robb was a good leader and pretty fair.  It was his inability to understand politics that made him weak.  Stannis understands politics; he just refuses to play into that **** which makes him a badass. 

All I have to say is that what's left of the Stark family better start coming back together because it's getting too damn tragic for me at this point.

Outside of a few victories in battle, Robb didn't do much. Did he trick Tywin and Jaime? Yeah, but he still mucked up pretty much everything else.

Bran is going to stay beyond the Wall. Sansa is on her way back to the North. Arya should be leaving Bravos soon. Rickon may be back at Winterfell by the end of TWOW. Lastly, Jon is not far away at all.
