Hey PQ! So I've been thinking. Jon definitely has earned the right to his throne, I totally agree. And I know that Aegon is probably Illyrio's son, but that part about him being raised with the common folk always gets me. Like, Jon has earned it, don't get me wrong, but Jon was raised in a castle and he really didn't have it so bad compared to all the poor common people living outside. Aegon is presented as the people's king, and I feel like he's earned it in some way. What do you think?

I appreciate and even admire what Varys is going for with the whole “unlike Tommen, Aegon was raised to know hunger and fear” thing. It immerses the perfect prince in the trials faced by those not lucky enough to be born heir to anything, encouraging him to see his subjects as people he’s sworn to protect rather than exploit. However, I don’t think that necessarily produces an overall worldview and game plan that helps said people. The problem is that Aegon never had this moment:

Donal Noye leaned forward, into Jon’s face. “Now think on this, boy. None of these others have ever had a master-at-arms until Ser Alliser. Their fathers were farmers and wagonmen and poachers, smiths and miners and oars on a trading galley. What they know of fighting they learned between decks, in the alleys of Oldtown and Lannisport, in wayside brothels and taverns on the kingsroad. They may have clacked a few sticks together before they came here, but I promise you, not one in twenty was ever rich enough to own a real sword.” His look was grim. “So how do you like the taste of your victories now, Lord Snow?”

“Don’t call me that!” Jon said sharply, but the force had gone out of his anger. Suddenly he felt ashamed and guilty. “I never … I didn’t think …”

Varys brags that Aegon knew fear, but he never knew shame; he never doubted himself and grew on his own terms rather than his handlers’. Jon, by contrast, was directly confronted with exactly the bubble you’re talking about, early on in his story. Donal Noye tells him that however valid his own frustrations were at Winterfell, it’s not remotely badass to take out those frustrations on those who have only fought with sticks. Jon listens, and learns. 

As shown by the white cloak now fluttering from Duck’s shoulders, Aegon has affinity for the particular common folk he grew up with, but he still doesn’t appear to have connected the dots to any larger ideology (because as we see in the epilogue to ADWD, Varys has the ideology waiting for him, all wrapped up in a neat little bow). Jon, by contrast, wasn’t immersed from the start, and so he initially has elitist blind spots. But he’s had the opportunity to undergo genuine self-motivated growth, which is how you get him taking Satin as his squire and letting Tormund’s people through the Wall four books later. Aegon had all the building blocks handed to him, and they’re kinda just sitting there. Jon tripped over them, picked them up, examined them, and is now building with them.

I find myself in a Jon Snow mood. A lot has been said (rightly so) about Jon's mistakes and failings. What about Jon Snow appeals to you? What are his best qualities in your opinion, and what has he done to earn his spot as hero and head of the dragon?

What appeals to me about Jon is that GRRM has constructed his arc so that whenever Jon starts to act like The Hero in the most predictable, single-minded sense, he gets diverted and/or slapped down, and is forced to grow and learn in more interesting ways. That’s not to say the related tropes are bad, and indeed, they’re still very much there! But GRRM does not allow Jon to lean on those tropes to get through his story. They will not guide him, they will not mold him, they will not save him. This is the sort of thing that shapes Jon Snow:

Donal Noye leaned forward, into Jon’s face. “Now think on this, boy. None of these others have ever had a master-at-arms until Ser Alliser. Their fathers were farmers and wagonmen and poachers, smiths and miners and oars on a trading galley. What they know of fighting they learned between decks, in the alleys of Oldtown and Lannisport, in wayside brothels and taverns on the kingsroad. They may have clacked a few sticks together before they came here, but I promise you, not one in twenty was ever rich enough to own a real sword.” His look was grim. “So how do you like the taste of your victories now, Lord Snow?”

“Don’t call me that!” Jon said sharply, but the force had gone out of his anger. Suddenly he felt ashamed and guilty.

“The old man is Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch,” Sam reminded him. “You’ll be with him day and night. Yes, you’ll pour his wine and see that his bed linen is fresh, but you’ll also take his letters, attend him at meetings, squire for him in battle. You’ll be as close to him as his shadow. You’ll know everything, be a part of everything … and the Lord Steward said Mormont asked for you himself!

“When I was little, my father used to insist that I attend him in the audience chamber whenever he held court. When he rode to Highgarden to bend his knee to Lord Tyrell, he made me come. Later, though, he started to take Dickon and leave me at home, and he no longer cared whether I sat through his audiences, so long as Dickon was there. He wanted his heir at his side, don’t you see? To watch and listen and learn from all he did. I’ll wager that’s why Lord Mormont requested you, Jon. What else could it be? He wants to groom you for command!”

Jon was taken aback. It was true, Lord Eddard had often made Robb part of his councils back at Winterfell. Could Sam be right? Even a bastard could rise high in the Night’s Watch, they said. “I never asked for this,” he said stubbornly.

“None of us are here for asking,” Sam reminded him.

And suddenly Jon Snow was ashamed.

Craven or not, Samwell Tarly had found the courage to accept his fate like a man. On the Wall, a man gets only what he earns, Benjen Stark had said the last night Jon had seen him alive. You’re no ranger, Jon, only a green boy with the smell of summer still on you. He’d heard it said that bastards grow up faster than other children; on the Wall, you grew up or you died.

Now, of course, the Hero Must Learn a Lesson. That’s super tropey. But what makes it different is the message coming through: being a badass in the training yard and elevating the warrior corps of the NW above the others are not what make you a hero, and may indeed reflect your blind spots. Donal telling Jon that he can only wipe the floor with his future brothers because he was raised as an elite is one of GRRM’s most direct political assertions in the series, and is an absolutely vital moment for Jon’s arc going forward. Jon’s failure to understand the ramifications of being the Lord Commander’s squire pays off four books later when he makes Satin his squire; he’s learned in the interim what that position means, and the empathy he experienced for Sam is emotionally and thematically connected to his elevation of Satin.

Aside from lending her remarkable voice to Kygo’s smash hit Stay and songs from various other talented electronic acts (ie. Lemaitre, VANIC), Los Angeles by way of Mississippi pop artist Maty Noyes also has a refined knack for releasing fine solo pop anthems, too, as showcased on her cleverly named 2016 EP Noyes Complaint. She’s fierce and assertive, empowering and fearless on a sonorous driving new single named Say It To My Face. Deep pulsing, disco thrumming electro pop accompanies her sultry voice on the lusciously hooking anthem. Say It To My Face is out now on Lava / Republic Records.

The last time Celina Cass (11) was seen alive, was the evening of July 25th, 2011. She was using the computer in the New Hampshire house she shared with her mother, Louisia, her stepfather Wendell Noyes, her younger sister and the 22 year old son of one of Louisia’s ex boyfriends.

She was reported missing the next day and an intense search ensued. Sadly, her body was found submerged in the Connecticuct River six days later, wrapped in a blanket. Her cause of death wasn’t released at the time.

From the start, police focused on the family, particularly on stepfather Wendell Noyes, who’s shown off behavior in several instances and has a history of mental issues. In fact, in 2003 he was found incompetent to stand trial for breaking into an ex’s house and threatening her.

After almost 5 years of mystery, on June 19th, 2016, police finally arrested Noyes and charged him with second degree murder. He was arraigned today. He’s currently 52 years old and has since separated from Louisia, who blames him for her daughter’s death and has said she wants him to “rot”.

This is Wendell:
