The Night's Watch theory is probably one of the best to ever come out of these forums, but I don't think it will actually happen because it just makes so much sense and is so fucking cool, interesting, and intriguing, and the second-to-last chapter of A Dance with Dragons describes watery shit in intricate detail.
You're right. It's never going to happen.

Although I do find the Night's Watch theory interesting and would like to discuss it more, let's get back on topic please.
I apologize for going off-topic. While I disagree that the dragon horn is Lightbringer, I do agree that the parallels are kind of there, especially the need for a human "sacrifice" and the horn's supposed Valyrian/fiery origins.
Sorry, one last thing.
I just realized-- the Night's Watch formed after the Long Night, which is when the supposed events of Azor Ahai occured. So how does that fit into your theory?
It's mentioned, either in an Old Nan story or a song, I can't remember, in one of Bran's chapters, that the Night's Watch defeated the Others in the Battle for the Dawn, and that's really what ended the Long Night. So the timeline more or less fits. There is some disagreement in the Wiki about it, but the Wiki is user-created and the bit I mentioned is actually from the books, somewhere.
Found it, from Clash of Kings, pg. 330:
When the singer reached the part in "The Night That Ended" where the Night's Watch rode forth to meet the Others in the Battle for the Dawn, he blew a horn blast that set all the dogs to barking.
This pretty clearly links up Azor Ahai, the Night's Watch, the Last Hero and the Battle for the Dawn. So there you are. Now, back to the dragon horn!
