  1. it is about tyrion http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Symon_Silver_Tongue
  2. That's not what I meant. It's different and this part of leak doesn't make ANY sense. I mean Brienne will have to question her loyalty to Sansa if Sansa starts acting against her values. Not for the wight.
  3. I don't know if you've already talked about this, but watching some Gwen's interview I was wondering how Brienne can handle her relationship with Sansa. She sworn to protect Cat's daughters and not only Arya is very different from a little girl who needs help, but also Sansa could take a dark path very different from Brienne's vision of the world. This could be a parallelism wih BookBrienne&LSH, she has to confront her own decisions, moral standards and her oaths. And I wonder if this is the reason why at some point brienne goes/is sent south.
  4. More more more hype&more fun, good job Gwen and Nik!
  5. Love them!
  6. Absolutely, from now on she will do everything to escape her destiny. Her raison d'être, yes. What is not clear is if Maggy was referring to the present or the future, when she said "all that you hold dear." Because it changes a lot during time. yes that's true!I totally agree.
  7. Cersei loves the power, the manipulations and the possibility to see herself in the others (or some parts of herself) like a mirror. Anyway, I agree, I really think it's Brienne in the prophecy. Now I'm really sleepy and can't write more , but great thread!
  8. LoL yes "all the ladies" yes, true! I had forgotten Cersei's Ghosts!
  9. Sorry I'm “a bit” late! I love it!! 'Cause the night is dark and full of terrors In the dark forest Dante meets 3 beasts: a Lonza a Lion and a She-wolf. There are different interpretations, some thinks that lonza (sort of a panther/leopard) is probably symbolic of fraud, the lion of violence and the she-wolf of incontinence. Others believe they represent Lust, Pride and Greed. My book version gives the second option. I think they could fit the Lannister, but what about the Stark? Lastly, when virgilio sees Dante's fear for the she-wolf he says: « Molti son li animali a cui s'ammoglia e più saranno ancora, infin che'l veltro verrà, che la farà morir con doglia. Questi non ciberà terra né peltro, ma sapïenza, amore e virtute, e sua nazion sarà tra feltro e feltro. Di quella umile Italia fia salute per cui morì la vergine Cammilla, Eurialo e Turno e Niso di ferute. Questi la caccerà per ogne villa fin che l'avrà rimessa ne lo 'nferno là ove 'nvidia prima dipartilla. » "Many the animals with whom she weds, And more they shall be still, until the Greyhound Comes, who shall make her perish in her pain. He shall not feed on either earth or pelf, But upon wisdom, and on love and virtue; 'Twixt Feltro and Feltro shall his nation be; Of that low Italy shall he be the saviour, On whose account the maid Camilla died, Euryalus, Turnus, Nisus, of their wounds; Through every city shall he hunt her down, Until he shall have driven her back to Hell, There from whence envy first did let her loose." This is the Greyhound Prophecy. It's still an enigma, some thinks that he was referring to the religion other to a new emperor. In any case, he's talking about a man who will save Italy (the reigns) A sort of AA? I know it's not the original interpretation, but “bitter” in this sentence reminds me the poison. In italian we says “bitter like poison” Yes, Martin uses “bitter” a lot. Also the cold is bitter “The cold was so bitter that Sam felt naked” “the days at Craster's Keep had been . . . well, not warm perhaps, but not so bitter cold.” “those few who had survived the snow, the wights, and the bitter cold. ” “It was the black of night outside, bitter cold and overcast ” And talking about cold: I love that Dante identify the Hell not only with fire but with ice too. And that the deepest part of Hell, where the worst sinners are, is the coldest one. Cocito is a frozen lake where Dante meets sinners guilty of treachery: traitors to their kindred, to their country,to their guests (Walder would be there XD) and to their Lords. I think there could be some parallelisms here, with Asoiaf. Oh and in the centre of Hell there is Lucifer with three heads.
  10. I think she tries, but she talk in a cryptic way because she is a Maegi that's how she talks. And I also think she knows she can't stop it anyway. I think it's because of Jaime. I think she could have pushed her. We know she was there to watch while Melara was dying. It could be one of the GRRM's three-fold Revelation strategy @Traverys. The subtle hint is "your death is here tonight etc", the more blatant hint is when Cersei thinks about how Melara screamed and probably we'll see the revelation in TWoW.
  11. it wasn't even in the script!
  12. I think that for the "outsiders" the family is the driving force of every move. They're are in search of power, identity or something they feel to lack. The others are bound to the family because they want to be recognized as a member or they feel to own a debt. For me, they are not so different.
  13. Sansa's voice is from the book. "Let me tell you something about wolves, child. When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives. Summer is the time for squabbles. In winter, we must protect one another, keep each other warm, share our strengths. So if you must hate, Arya, hate those who would truly do us harm. Septa Mordane is a good woman, and Sansa … Sansa is your sister. You may be as different as the sun and the moon, but the same blood flows through both your hearts. You need her, as she needs you … and I need both of you, gods help me." I think LF says that real battles are inside the mind, between loyalties, parts of self, power games, games of strategy. What is interesting is that they chose to start and finish with those speeches. And jon's one in the middle.
  14. I really enjoyed the new trailer, before reading all the internet reactions. This Lads/4chan/other leakers thing is starting to scary me. We read all the scenes as a proof of the leakers' reliability or not. It doesnt' even matter anymore if they are fake or real as long you can read all the news according to what an anonymous said. And we forget to actually watch the trailer, what would we think of it, without knowing the leaks? It would be fun analysing it in a different way. For ex what do you think of LF/Sansa's speech?
  15. There are some screenshots of the comments. I like what he said, I can easily choose to believe him for 32 days lol I can even believe the size, for the record And yes, I still hope both lads are somehow fake @Meera of Tarth They can't be so mediocre in securety level and so little protective towards the viewers. They must be the biggest trolls ever.
  16. I don't think so.... They wanted to add a badass little girl. I wonder if they are going to add more screentime in season 7, because people like her a lot. But maybe she will appear in the book too, in a different way.
  17. I love "secondary" characters! I think Heartsbane and Sam are going to play a great role in the finale! both in the books and inthe show. He reminds me the lion in the wizard of Oz, who is searching for courage when he is already brave, but he cannot see it. Maybe he is brave but not in a conventional way. yes, I wonder if we'll ever see Howland! I think that will be a difference between show and books. I don't think she will have the same role in the books. Can't wait to see more of him! I hope Brienne will have the same grand finale both in show and in the books, because I think she is very important for the story. And I really hope she'll survive.
  18. heirloom, trophy or famous sword/relic/collector's item? great list! There are a lot of topics that I like: swords in legends, oathkeeper, swords remember, Valyrian Steel, obsidian etc. I think it's also interesting how swords change hands. But it's not so easy trace all the stories.
  19. Thank you! And that reminds me the broken longsword at LF's ancestral home you quoted in other threads.
  20. Great work @Seams ! I think you're right, there are not so many descriptions of hilts and pommels. I had found some infos in SSM about VS swords, I don't remember if there was something about hilts or pommels too. good idea! yeah, where did she said it? yes, they're linked. And I think colors and lights are really important ... Maybe we have to consider hilts pommels blades shape colors and names (?) in their entirety.
  21. Quoting myself for an opinion: I was right, right? Was it Jon at 0.59? I was looking for his/her leaks some weeks ago, but I couldn't find anything! Do you know where I can find them? Are they older than lads' ones?
  22. I hope he was referring to cersei but it could be I've read something, but I can't find it right now! nothing special btw yesssssss
  23. I wonder if it's a bit of the trailer in the eye, as if NK is watching it LoL
  24. Probably you have already talked about this topic in many threads. In Asos Jaime, on his way from Harrenhal to KL, makes a dream that influence his decision to come back and rescue Brienne. You can read it in a psychological way and it makes perfect sense. You can read it as a rapresentation of jaime's past present and imminent future. You can read it as a prophecy in long terms. but jaime was sleeping on a weirwood stump. Does it indicate the dream is necessarily prophetic? And most of all, since Jaime notice the the white stump, how did he read his own dream? How did it affect his decision to rescue Brienne?
