the same friend thought that sansa should leave with sandor, and eventually marry him
and of course everyone believes that dany and jon are meant for each other!
oh, and someone else said that somehow mance will die , and jon will rise among the wildlings, and he will unite them with the night's watch to fight the white walkers together

That actually makes enough sense (as potential foreshadowing) that he has me genuinely wondering... could that be a twist they're planning for the TV show?
He also told me, "you know.. I think Jaqen might be Arya's dancing master?". I got a good chuckle out of that.

Dany was reborn thru fire Jon must be thru ice it is for certain that he is AA reborn

Most of them are really quite clever. They have for example almost taken for granted that Robb will die soon, as a result of his romance with, and marriage to, Talisa.
I like the guy that's referring to a wight Sam as UnSam. Totally a book reader messing with them

He also said that Tyrion will end up in the nights watch and that Dany will never get to Westeros ... He said he is torn between Arya and Jon to get the iron throne.
Oh, he also said that "Someone is hiding in the tree" When Luwin died.. I was in shock!

My mother is convinced that Roose is the one guy who will stay loyal to Robb because it's too obvious for a guy who looks like that, speaks like that, lives at the Dreadfort and suggests that Robb should let him flay guys because they "aren't in the north" to be a traitor.

As for a theory, on Otaku Assemble, Larry theorized that the White Walkers were descended from the First Men. Granted he comes from a place that alot of TV viewers are stuck in seeing the Wights and the Others as one and the same. I could say that he may be partially correct if you assume that most of those Wights are from the corpses Northerners or Wildings. He could also be close to another strongly-held theory if you displace First Men for Children of the Forest.

Also, you'll notice how some people do object to the writing, for example many are confused as to why Winterfell burned, they don't get why Sansa refused the Hound's offer, they think Talissa is cliche, they think Cat is stupider than she really deserves, etc.
I enjoy reading that forum but two things slightly frustrate me about it; the obvious bookwalkers, and those who criticize plots or characters that I know were altered for the worse (thinking, "no guys that's not GRRM's fault!" hehe).

hey! i think they might be the first men based on how they look. they just look old to me. is there anything on what they really are that i've missed?
anyway, back to the topic:
my boyfriend thinks talisa is a spy and that mance is benjen. he keeps saying "benjen's been missing and they keep saying that mance used to be a crow." he also doesn't understand the whole faceless man thing and says that jaqen changed his face and name because arya told him to kill himself and jaqen had to honor his word. didn't the series talk about faceless men already?

Gendry will escort Arya to Robb.
Robb will die.
Margery is not innocent....well, hello?
Littlefinger really loves Catelyn.
Littlefinger recognized Arya.
Stannis will have more "shadow-y whatever they are-s," and many deaths will result.
Catelyn will be betrothed/forced to marry a Northern Lord to shore up an alliance for Robb. But, she will die by suicide.
Melisandre is E-V-I-L.
Jon will become the Hand equivalent to The King Beyond The Wall.
Maester Lewin is still alive because viewers didn't see him die.
Theon will return to "the place where he felt up his sister."
Cercei and Jaime will never see each other again.
Stannis will defeat Robb. And Robb will die. Basically, everyone believes Robb will die, though the method varies.
None of the Stark children will see each other again. And they will die. (I'm sensing a theme...)
Joffrey will Kill Cercei.
Cercei will kill Joffrey, and then herself.
Seriously, I almost wish I hadn't read the books, but then I wouldn't have so much fun hearing these theories, amiright?

She also thinks Sam didn't get attacked because he is a chosen leader for the Others...
EVERY ONE of my non-reader friends haven't said anything about Davos after the big explosion at Blackwater! Nobody cares about Davos!!
Posted 08 June 2012 - 06:38 AM
Melisandre is a spy from Cercei's and will destroy Stannis
Melisandre was in a magic boat during Blackwater and it was her that killed Davos
Jon will join the wildlings and return to the wall to kill LC Mormont
Robb will not die but he'll kill Cat after Cat tries to kill Talisa
Mance Rider is Benjen Stark and he will kill Jon because Jon will refuse to join him
The Other will turn back to kill Sam but Ghost will save him
Pretty much Ghost will save everyone because the Others and the WW are afraid of wolfs and that's why they exist in GoT. Because of that all Stark brothers will reunite and fight the Others with their wolfs

HAHAHA! I properly burst out laughing at that! Magic boat!
