I'm currently reading Arya's chapter p.592 when Lord Beric offers a silver stag for her dreams (although it's wine and a song she gets). Has anyone tried to interpret her dreams yet? I know they met with her on one earlier occasion too. This time the dream is as follows: "I dreamt a wolf howling in the rain, but no heard his grief [...] I dreamt such a clangor I thought my head might burst, drums and horns and pipes and screams, but the saddest sound was the little bells. I dream of a maid at a feast with purple serpents in her hair, venom dripping from their fangs. And later I dreamt that maid again, slaying a savage giant in a castle built of snow." And the first time Arya saw the little dwarf women on p.302: "I dreamt I saw a shadow with a burning heart butchering a golden stag, aye. I dreamt of a man without a face, waiting on a bridge that swayed and swung. On his shoulder perched a drowned crow with seaweed hanging from his wings. I dreamt of a roaring river and a women that was a fish. Dead she drifted, with red tears on her cheeks, but when her eyes did open, oh, I woke from terror." Some of these sentences are quite obvious. The shadow with a burning heart (meaning the shadow conjured by Melisandre) butchering a golden stag (Renly). The maid at the feast with purple serpents in her hair? Savage giant in a castle built of snow? Will all this make perfect sense once I've read SoS or later in the books?
justanotheruser replied to faroresdragn's topic in A Clash of KingsI guess war was inevitable from the point where Eddard openly denied Joffrey his claim to the throne and spilled the truth of him being the incestuous offspring between Cersei and Jaimie. If Ned would've just kept his mouth shut and declared Joffrey for king, Sansa would still be betrothed to Joffrey and matters would be solved. Sansa would be safe at KL and Ned could go home and live out the rest of his days at Winterfell. Small price for keeping your mouth shut.
