It may not go this way in the HBO series, but I still believe Jon Snow is Robert Baratheon’s bastard, not Rhaegar’s. It’s not because I have thought he was Robert’s from the beginning, and I hate to be wrong. It’s that I really hate that the rebellion was based on a lie. Unless there is some good writing to back that up, this amazing, creative, strong, detailed, well-written world is held together by the weakest of threads.

Bran, if you’re listening, I hope you can find the moment of Jon’s conception.

It’s possible I will just end up liking my story better. It happened with Harry Potter. It can happen again. That doesn’t mean I will hate on GoT or think it’s ruined. I love for people to tell me a good story, and this story is better than most.
