  1. Do the books specify which king Dalbridge squired for? I've read online it was Jaehaerys, just don't know if it's confirmed somewhere and I've missed it.
  2. Har! And Wylla is obviously Quaithe, so I guess we need to look no further into the subject
  3. Any idea who the wet nurse is that fled from Dragonstone with Dany across the narrow sea? Figure it's unimportant but just wanted to check
  4. Taena Merryweather is the first to come to mind. And I think Lyn Corbray will eventually be the one to help bring littlefinger down. Sarella, obviously. And Daemon Sand is probably spying/informing on Arianne.
  5. Thanks for all the great answers guys. @ravenous reader @cgrav that's probably the best explanation I've heard on the subject. Just one of the several ASOIAF thoughts that cross my mind daily. @Lord VarysI did state it was unlikely to be anyone but Stannis in my first post, but I appreciate your snark as always! (Truly, I love your back and forth with various board members. It's entertaining.)
  6. In Dany's HOTU visions, she sees a "blue eyed king who casts no shadow" with a red sword glowing like sunset. Most readers agree this is Stannis. I get it, he checks all the boxes, except (in my mind) casting no shadow. We get a few prominent characters associated with shadows, most notably Jon, Tyrion, and Stannis. When Davos rows Mel underneath Dragonstone to slay Penrose with a shadow baby, the chapter ends with him saying he knew that shadow, as he knew the man who cast it. So, does this tie in with Dany being a slayer of lies, with one of the lies being that Stannis casts no shadow? Could it mean that the vision isn't of Stannis (unlikely IMO)? Or am I misremembering or totally delusional?
  7. I think they'll make it as far as the Trident, if Dany's HOTU visions can be believed. That's pretty far south.
  8. The guy worried about conquering an entire continent and then ruling it or the skilled sellsword who made a killing off the richest family in westeros? Bronn.
  9. Pretty sure they were in the first keep, not the broken watch tower. Back doors are a pretty big thing in Aeron Damphair's chapters, too.
  10. Imo a leader who let's thousands of people die to come back as wights and says LOL my sister is getting raped whatever isn't a guy I'd follow. Sure Jon broke a law but it's a shit one. Besides Mance (who's running from the danger), Stannis, and his red witch their is no one on Planetos actively trying to stop the Others.
  11. This. Jon has a pretty lengthy discussion with maester aemon as well about choosing. And LC Mormont tells Jon that Aemon could have been a king, but refused the crown. Pretty telling stuff
  12. Well we're told that autumn storms are the worst in-world, and that's proven true as OP laid out the ironborns difficulties. Dany is currently preoccupied though at the moment, and will still have things to settle in the east before she can make moves to westeros. I would assume we're looking at months passing before she's ready to set sail. Will it be winter by then? Are storms less common after autumn? How long does autumn even last? At a guess, I'd say they arrive with a higher percentage of ships than Victarion did. I also strongly assume her fleet comes from the ironborn, who certainly are the best sailors in westeros. I'm putting my money on 80%. No idea how many soldiers she brings with her or leaves in meereen though.
  13. No, I've actually never heard a theory of Mance being the reason for the Others awakening. I could see it being the Starks fault though. I still don't see any hint or evidence of Mance hurting women or children. It's never brought up. He's definitely broken laws but I don't know if that makes him immoral.
  14. It's true Mance isn't big on the laws south of the border, but unless I've missed it I haven't read him torturing or killing any women or children. What he wants is to save the entirety of his wildling host. He's the first leader in the series alerted to and properly responding to the threat of the Others.
  15. Hey guys, heard that some filthy rumors were being spread about me. I'm here to set the record straight. I'm not a secret Targ, a Darry, or anyone else associated with Rhaegar. I dislike but respect the Starks and would never murder a child. Littlefinger is a terrible, Stark hating human being and I have never even spoken to him. And lastly I'm alive and (not so) well at Winterfell.
