  1. I'm a huge Sansa fan, so I really hoped she'd get to marry Willas and become the Lady of Highgarden.... But the nature of the story, especially for Sansa, whenever her hopes are up they get destroyed and things just get worse for my girl.. I'm really worried about this whole potential Harry the Heir situation in TWOW. Out of all the options I still think Willas would make her happiest. I Highly doubt it will happen but the irony if her knight in shining armor actually being lame, and not an actual knight, would be an appropriate ending for Sansa who began as a typical shallow, materialistic adolescent girl. Wishful thinking....
  2. Great idea! Thats the kind of responses I was hoping for, thanks!
  3. I always really liked that theorues about the Vale mountain clans.. There's also one where they kidnapped a Lady of House Arryn ( I think one who was close descendant from the time when they had married a Targ) Sorry to be so vague but there's some real cool theories about it also relating to Time on..
  4. I posted a few quotes but sent them before copying your response... It should be just above.
  5. d to wed Maegor. She, too, became pregnant, and like Alys before her, she gave birth to a stillborn abomination said to have been born eyeless and with small wings. -Woiaf, Maegor Just a few examples that they're not typical stillbirths... And personally even just 3 still born babies in all different parts of the entire series, where the babes have dragon like qualitie stands out to me. I don't believe it'll be a future plot point in TWOW or ADOS, maybe in one of the future Targ history books WOIAF type of books...
  6. I didn't think about that, while it's probably just myth.. And I'm starting to think there's not much to it but there are a number of references to not just still births, but the odd appearance of a number of diff Targ's throughout the history of Ice and Fire... But like i said, And maybe I'm missing something but I don't recall any other family having those inhuman looking stillborns. But I'm pretty sure they've all been 2nd hand accounts..
  7. Of course! And the Hanovers' Victoria first cousin marriage, becoming known as the Grandmother Europe passing on her now well known genetic bleedin disorder. But while something widely n considered to be a result of hers and get children and grwndchildrens' incestual reproduction, it's known to have occurred in other families without bloodties to hers. What makes it uniquely Targ , is their reptilian appearances mentioned multiple times in throughout the storys long timeline and that the Targs unique(especially Dany the only current one were sure of) affiliation with dragons.
  8. I have to admit I had to a quick Google search on this one .. So do you believe that's the explanation for grey scale and Targs can like develop it in the womb and the children don't survive to their births? I like that as a more sci fi answer to grey scale I just can't understand why we only hear about with this specific family.
  9. Sure, obviously that could answer it... But, I think it deserves a little more discussion... They're certainly not the only family to make a practice of either or all of these though so why do we keep reading about it happening to the Targs?
  10. Still reading and very much enjoying this post, but ditto!
  11. Throughout the series, including WOIAF, The Princess and the Queen (and or the Rogue Prince), and A Game Of Thrones' Dany chapter we read about these monstrous stillbirths.. I don't believe we learn of any other family birthing these inhuman stillbirths... I am sorry I don't have the books handy for direct quotes but I couldn't find any discussion on how oddly almost dragon-like these stillborn babies appear. IIRC they've been described as scaled, clawed and other almost reptilian appearances. While I'm pretty sure most of these are told as second hand accounts, I feel like it's mentioned too many times for it to be ignored... I would love a good theory, even if it's tinfoil-y. If I'm forgetting or missing some key info please share your knowledge/thoughts. Or leave a link if you know of any good reads that expands on the subject... As usual, Im sure I've come to the right place for everything ASOIAF, so thanks in advance!!
  12. ..

    Delete, duplicate
  13. That'd be cool! They're a house I'd like to learn more about, either way!
  14. Thanks! That really makes sense, on a lot of levels! Simple, straightforward, and smart!
  15. I'm sure it's been discussed but we're all impatiently TWoW and topics are getting recycled so forgive me. But I find it hard to believe a Royce is the first character we meet with a family name yet while a respected house they have relatively small big picture relevance. I mean we know the GRRM's idea for the series didn't originate with the prologue but it's the entire series's prologue... I know there's plenty of red herrings in our story but maybe there's some interesting thoughts out there worth discussing.. Thanks
