  1. A couple of posts before that one he says he’s taking a break from the Not A Blog for awhile. Maybe he just doesn’t want anyone knowing where he is so he can actually get some work done.
  2. If Brienne is not lying, could Lem Lemmoncloak be holding the girl, who helped nurse Brienne back to health after her fight with Biter, against her? I'm not sure why he would hold her and not Poderick. It's also possible that, if Sandor is the gravedigger and he did follow Brienne, Sandor has taken one of the orphan girls from the BWB in a similar way that he took Arya from them and is holding her against Brienne for some reason.
  3. It’s my opinion that a lot of Robert’s behavior after winning the crown was due to the loss of Lyanna; in part due to her death, as well as the possibility that she ran off with Rhaegar. He made Lyanna out to be the perfect woman and to compensate for losing her he whored and drank and feasted. Yes, he fathered a bastard in the Vale before he was betrothed to her and she had fears he would not keep to her bed alone; but I believe losing her exaggerated these behaviors. He was also stuck in a love-less marriage with Cersei. His whoring may have been lessened if he were married to a woman who loved him and that he had love for as well; that may not have slowed his drinking or feasting though (we see him in a drinking contest at the Tourney at Harrenhal).
  4. It's important to remember that conversation was remembered in a milk-of-the-poppy induced fever dream Ned was having. It may not have happened exactly as Ned dreams in that moment and the dream could be combining multiple events into a single showdown.
  5. It's said that "ice preserves and fire consumes", I'm not sure exactly where, but I remember reading that. So, it's likely that living at the Wall helped prolong Maester Aemon's life and that when he travelled into warmer climates, the increase in heat sped up his demise. It may be possible, if Jon is dead and not just very near death, for his body to be preserved in an ice cell or in one of the food storage areas under the wall. If Jon is very near death, but his spirit/mind is warged into Ghost, that being placed into an ice cell could slow the process of death long enough for his body to be healed. That's all assuming that the Wall isn't in complete chaos after the mutiny and people can collect Jon's body quickly enough and get him into an ice cell.
  6. The Blackfish was loyal to Robb Stark before disappearing from Riverrun, still flying the banner of House Stark during the Seige of Riverrun.
  7. Dany also says that after Darry dies the servants stole their money, but Viserys still has their mother's crown (which he later sells). If they were together during the time of Darry's death, how did Viserys keep the crown when the rest of their money was stolen? Wouldn't the servants have stolen the crown too?
  8. The value of being a good man is people may think of you more favorably after your death.
  9. I know this thread is about marrying Myrcella to Willas, but I just want address the OP saying Robert was the weakest of the commanders, bringing no alliances. Robert was a strong military leader. He had alliances with the Vale and the North through being fostered in the Vale by Jon Arryn with Ned. He may not have brought as many men as those regions, but he definitely had their support.
  10. Isn't there a quote in Clash of Kings, I think (maybe Storm of Swords), when Jon is having a wolf dream and comments about being able to feel his brothers and sister and knowing one is dead (If it's in Clash [or early on in Storm] then Grey Wind would still be alive). I think this would be confirmation that the direwolves, or at least Ghost, is (are) able to know where each other are.
  11. Jaime and Tyrion
  12. It was Melisandre that said it. "Jon." Melisandre was so close he could feel the warmth of her breathe. "R'hollor is the only true god. A vow sworn to a tree has no more power than one sworn to your shoes. Open your heart and let the light of the Lord come in. Burn these weirwoods, and accept Winterfell as a gift of the Lord of Light." - ASOS Jon XI
  13. Could also be that they left at separate times. Viserys could have left at night as he said and Rhaella could have left during the morning as Jaime said. I don't remember if Jaime mentions seeing Viserys with Rhaella.
  14. Didn't Jon have the letter on him when he was stabbed? If so, she will search his body and discover it.
  15. @rotting sea cow My only argument against what you're saying is that we have already seen the Iron Born as described as the "sea rising over the walls of Winterfell" in Jojen's greendream about the fall of Winterfell. Either Martin is just repurposing this symbolism to foreshadow what Euron is about to do in Oldtown or it is about something else.
