Something “gone awry” is the reason for every war ever. I am a Dragonfly Woman shirt. Ambition, loyalty, duty are all things that make people go to war. They’re not inherently wrong for that reason. They’re just things that inspire dedication strong enough to risk one’s life. As I noted, you might as well say, “caring about things causes wars.”. The character is being specific. That’s not the same thing as the “story” being specific. Characters will have all sorts of opinions or philosophies. That’s not the same as the storytelling they are true. If that was my only piece of evidence then you’d have a fair point but just read all the quotes I provided. You have Robb, Jorah, Jeor, Jaime, Aemon, Tyrion etc. in agreement about love. It’s an exploration of how love can and does go wrong.

There’s not as much on the opposite side. I’m struggling to think of any atm. I am a Dragonfly Woman shirt. I’m still not sure what you think your side is exactly. Not caring about people? Not loving your spouse? I mean Jon’s devotion to duty certainly didn’t result in his life being spared. Would Rhaegar not run away with Lyanna really have prevented the war? Aerys would still have been mad and would, presumably still have gone on murdering the aristocrats until someone decided enough was enough. Tywin was a much better man when he had a wife to love and care about. A lot of the characters sure love to blame “love” for things that are really about greed, selfishness, or self-indulgence. Well, I would say I agree with you on this, that this would be a bleak and poor message. BUT, he’s done it before and more than once.

“A Song For Lya”, “With Morning Comes Mistfall”, “Windhaven” come to mind as tragic and terrible ends for people who were either in love or did love each other. I am a Dragonfly Woman shirt. A Song for Lya, for example, explored how passionate love can be but also self-destructive as well as leaving the reader wondering if it’s even worth it. It is fair to say that George has never been much for the happily ever after when it comes to romantic couples in his writings. Perhaps Jon and Dany will break that trend of his. Delusions of love can be self-destructive as there is a blindness to the exploitation of their weakness and frailties, but this isn’t groundbreaking, and this doesn’t mean that Jones leads to the destruction of Westeros

I agree with Tyrion being in love with Dany, Many hate it, but it’s there. I am a Dragonfly Woman shirt. I hope not with repeating history, although there is the theme of cyclical history, there is also a theme of overcoming and not being defined by the sins of the father. Exactly, many things will deviate away from the norm at the end. The series and history were all for the Iron Throne, it won’t exist. A Stark has never ventures south successfully, this time he will. Love has always been tragic in the series, the series will end with its triumph.
