I love conspiracy theories.  Roswell, Area 51, Bigfoot, the Lochness monster.  But there are theories I love even more than aliens… book theories.  I know, call me a nerd, but I love a good fan theory about book characters.   One recently that has grabbed my attention is the questionable parentage of Jon Snow.  Which has been flying around the internet like a pissed off dragon. The theory itself isn’t new, but it’s been gaining attention as the series becomes more and more popular.  So while...
