    In 100 years, they will all be dead anyway. So what does it matter?

    Life is nothing but pain, man.
    I looked out this morning and the sun was gone
    Turned on some music to start my day
    I lost myself in a familiar song
    I closed my eyes and I slipped away

    He could have pulled a Tywin and ruled in all but name behind his brother. It was silly and why I could never fully support/go with it.

    I think he just had too rigid a sense of what was "right" versus not. Anything not specifically aligning with that was seen as dishonorable/wrong. Very much a literalist.

    Yes, if he had been a different person, he could have flexed and been successful, and the Lannisters would no longer be on the throne. But he wasn't. He was Stannis.

    Except none of the 5 kings allied with any of the other. Lmfao.

    Save this for Robb Stark. He executed his bannerman for killing a pow. He then pissed off his 'most sleazy ally' by breaking his vows.

    You're just reaching for reasons to hate Stannis, and now it's just becoming pathetically hilarious.

    It was attempted, but Stannis screwed it up.

    As did Balon (didn't ally with Robb), Renly (didn't want Robb to be king of the north, didn't want Stannis king), and Robb (wanted to be king of the north).

    I think the whole thing is silly. Why has this become a pissing/trolling match over Stannis? He's just some guy in a book. He made some mistakes. They all did. Anyone can like whatever character they want.

    Stannis would have had the red woman burn half his kingdom if he won. Other than that, you are correct that it is purely fiction, and thus doesn't matter.
