What do you think of Val's blue eyes?
Now, I've heard Grrm himself in interviews say that sometimes he gets someones eye color wrong, but this just seems like too much going on at once to not be significant.
When Val first leaves the wall for Jon, all it says is she's wearing a huge BROWN bearskin cloak...it talks about her half blind horse, food, ect...she also mentions Gillys "little monster"
Val has been described as having pale gray eyes. The wiki says,
"Val is a beautiful woman with blonde hair which she sometimes wears in a golden braid across one shoulder. She has pale grey eyes with high sharp cheekbones; but when she returns from her mission to Tormund her eyes are recorded as blue."
When she returns she's this vision in white, and walking with Ghost "they look as though they belong together"
she's described as "clad in all white" and then goes into detail White woolen breeches, boots of bleached white leather, WHITE bearskin cloak pinned with a weirwood face, white tunic, breath white as well...it says "BUT her eyes are blue"
It also describes her cheeks being red so to be fair I won't leave that out.
Shortly thereafter, we get the pink letter, Wun Wun freaks out and everything goes to hell.
Now, Val mentions several times that she's wary of Mellisandre, magic being a "sword with no hilt"...that she knows Mel is aware who the "little monster" really is and what-not.
So. Did something (really awesome)) happen to Val?
Does she just have a really extensive wardrobe complete with colored contacts?
Is "blue" passable for "pale gray"?
why the heavy play on "white"
Am I looking at somthing that isn't there???
