So Bran was thrown from a window and ended up in a coma when Bloodraven entered his dreams with the fly or die method of opening his third eye. Do you think something similar happened to Euron, and that’s why he wears an eye patch and went insane? He was already messed up, what with the Iron born beliefs on rape and murder, but do you think he might have been better before they met? It might explain why Bloodraven chose him. I doubt that he watched him and thought nothing of his awful behaviour.

Given Bran and Jojen’s experiences, I think it’s fair to say that Bloodraven needs you to be comatose or in a very deep fever to first enter your dreams. In li’l Euron’s case, Pyke is so cold and damp that a near-fatal fever seems thoroughly plausible. I don’t think there’s any reason to believe that Euron “came back wrong,” so to speak, because Bran and Jojen never even seemed at risk of that, and the former’s vision in AGOT indicated that failing Bloodraven’s test doesn’t drive you mad–it just straight-up kills you. “Fly or die,” so therefore, Euron flew. (And has been trying to do so again ever since.) There’s no indication that Bloodraven’s training changes who you are as a person; it expands your capacities, but it doesn’t alter your values. Rather, like many forms of power, it reveals them. 

So Euron still would’ve been Euron without Bloodraven’s involvement. He just wouldn’t have superpowers. As for “I doubt that [Bloodraven] watched [Euron] and thought nothing of his awful behaviour,” I think that misunderstands Bloodraven’s character. As Hand, his core belief was that the ongoing threat of the Blackfyres meant there were neither ethical nor pragmatic limits on his power. Whatever he felt he needed to do, or not do, to defeat the black dragons was, by definition, worth it. (If that sounds a lot like his fellow spymaster Varys’ attitude, IMO that’s because it’s supposed to.) In a classic ironic twist, his willingness to do anything in the name of the monarchy ended up weakening that monarchy, from the royal neglect of the North and West during Dagon’s raids to the surprising strength of the Third Blackfyre Rebellion to the execution of Aenys Blackfyre.

Bloodraven is a greenseer now, not Hand of the King, but I think GRRM has recreated that same arc on a cosmic scale: whatever Bloodraven feels he needs to do to defeat the Others is, by definition, worth it. So what if li’l Euron is already very very clearly the Antichrist, if his powers can make him useful in throwing back another Long Night? But again, that mentality is coming around to bite Bloodraven (and the realm at large) in the ass. 

For the record, since this is a pet peeve of mine: there is no one coherent set of “Ironborn beliefs on rape and murder.” What you’re referring to is the Old Way, and that’s not all there is to the Ironborn, not by a long shot. Indeed, Euron was raised by Lord Quellon Greyjoy, a far-sighted reformer who banned thralldom and limited reaving to foreign waters. 

arm wrestled dum-e today. does it count as arm wrestling when his whole body is an arm? or is it just wrestling then

steve drew me, and then tony added dum-e to the sketch. nice to see them getting along.

this is just before the table snapped under us. that red stuff is blood from the nosebleed i got, and that white is when dum-e decided that spraying me down with the fire extinguisher would help with the nosebleed

it did not.
