Behold my mighty cracked pot, in all its magnificent glory! Okay, well then, this is about the " A great stone beast takes wing from a smoking tower, breathing shadows" vision in the house of the undying. I've wanted to post this for a while with quotes and references but I haven't had the time, so here's my half arsed version. I believe it's POSSIBLY referring to JonCon. It fits as his sigil is a Griffin, and because (unknown to everyone but himself) he has grayscale. (breathing shadows/disease/lies). If you believe fAegon to be be true, (not that JonCon would know this) then the "breathing shadows" fits pretty well. (Black fire!) Since he is trying to get Aegon on the throne as his final goal before he dies, as in that's all he is living and breathing for, and if he is fake, then he is truly breathing shadows (lies/deceit). Works in a few ways, no? But.. the smoking tower bit shakes things up a bit. Maybe after they take Storms End or another castle and a tower is burning that's when he will infect someone else and the plague (great stone beast) will take wing. It could still work without him starting a plague, but.. There has been so many mentions of gray scale throughout the series that I kinda want it to happen. Time is an issue though, as there are only 2 books to go. But like I said, my pot is cracked. I actually think it's totally in pieces. But hey, it's just an idea I had, and I hope it at the very least entertained you for 2 minutes. Now, fire away, dismantle my already shattered pottery!

this makes mel the absolute worst interpreter in history /tongue.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':P' /> ( because it kinda negates the waking dragons from stone bit)

But Mel didn't see this vision, Dany did. And it does say beast, not dragon /cool4.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':cool4:' />

Unless JonCon's greyscale runs its entire course and he ends up blind and deranged (and in a smoking tower), I don't think the prophesy will fit.

Yes, I'm the one with the similarly cracked pot. Posted this in a thread about the HOTU prophecies about a month or two ago. Glad somebody else is on board with me.

I agree with the OP actually

Greyscale = the Stone Men
Griffin with greyscale = Stone Beast

The tower could be from Griffin's Roost, where his invasion started (i.e. where he took "flight").

And we've already seen how he started spreading the "lie" about Aegon being real

I think this is the best interpretation of the prophecy.

My problem with this theory is that Aegon and JonC embody the same lie.

IMO Dany is the slayer of 3 different lies, but I could be wrong.

Spoilers!!!!

In WoW Aegon takes storm's end so that actually mean that you're have a point also in DWD it has been noted that Dany should be careful of the mummer's dragon and the griffin which means that they may part of the lie that she slays!

The thread title fucking killed me, brah. I was laughing so hard!

LOOK AT IT!!!

Oh gods /lmao.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':lmao:' />

Anyway, i cant say im sold on this really cracked bunch of pottery, but who knows. Perhaps the Stone Dragon bits have something to do with Greyscale. /dunno.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':dunno:' />

This is one of the few ways the smoking tower would fit, if something gets set on fire at the top. Maybe a signal fire to show they have taken the castle? Would be awesome if they took Dragonstone, that would be a mighty smoking tower haha.

Hand of the King. Cersei burned The Tower of the Hand.




I like it. I wonder if "Breathing Shadows" may also mean that JonCon is spreading greyscale via airborne infection.

A pot that's been well cracked. I like the theory and I guess it fits.

One of the many ways the wording works with JonCon.

I don't think it even resembles a pot anymore!

A tea cup overflowing with crazy.

Not sure if they can be saved, grayscale can be stopped but I don't think it can be reversed. Because the Baratheons have Targ blood maybe she's the dragon that will awaken from stone hahaha. But seriously, I find Shireen very interesting. Vals reaction that she is "unclean" and should be killed is very.... odd. I wonder what would happen if she came across someone else with greyscale? The start of the grey plauge haha? She'd be imune, but everyone else would be f*cked!!
