  1. It might be this simple indeed. I kind of like the idea of him using his blood for some nefarious purpose, but mostly because it adds even more layers to the story. However, it's probably just this in reality. As I've come to notice in this forum, time breeds strange theories.
  2. Probably a more sound alternative as to how Ashara connects to the main story, but as someone else pointed out. What would be the "point" of Allyria in the story?
  3. Maybe one of the junkie illustrators had a Freudian slip. Their words: "None so High".
  4. I like the theory about Littlefinger being the sole perpetrator, having ordered the serving of a poisoned pie to Tyrion. The plan backfired when Joffrey ate the pie instead. The motive, Tyrion being a threat to Littlefingers further plans and aspirations. Tyrion being an intellectual threat as well as causing his bargaining chip for marriage, Sansa Stark to become unusable. The theory was quite well laid out by Preston Jacobs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkIczwc7Hz8
  5. If I recall correctly, she felt uncomfortable with him. Perhaps she didn't trust him well enough to reveal herself, and considering the Red Wedding, with good cause apparently. Based on how northern lords treated Donella Hornwood, it seems like they can only be trusted so far.
  6. That gave me a laugh. I don't know about Brandon, but if people are sick enough to rape, it wouldn't surprise me if what you're describing is possible as well.
  7. I don't think I know GOT enough to help you, but would you be willing to publish the Bachelor for reading? What are you specifically researching if I may ask?
  8. I don't get it either. I got severely pissed when his name was revealed to be Aegon. Are they assuming show watchers aren't familiar with the lore, i.e. Rhaegar already having two children, one of whom is named Aegon as well? I wonder if they will even give an explanation to that in season 8.
  9. I have a feeling for some reason that there will be a point when Stannis is put to a choice between burning his daughter or allow great harm come to Westeros. I wonder if there won't be twist in the books, where Stannis will walk the pyre himself for the sake of his daughter and Westeros, fulfilling the following passage. "I know the cost! Last night, gazing into that hearth, I saw things in the flames as well. I saw a king, a crown of fire on his brows, burning... burning, Davos. His own crown consumed his flesh and turned him into ash. Do you think I need Melisandre to tell me what that means? Or you?"
  10. What would be the point of that, story-wise? Seems far-fetched.
  11. Even though I've recently (as per Order of the Green Hand) come to enjoy the thought of N+A=J more than R+L=J for a number of reasons, I still don't see why D&D would've diverged so majorly from the actual plot of the books. Especially considering that GRRM apparently confirmed their guess of Jon's parentage. I realize that they have diverged on other plot elements, but that can be attributed to the fact that they had to cut down on a few things and essentially hardwire the story to give a meaningful ending. However, Jon's parentage is a trivially easy thing to portray and shouldn't be affected by this in my opinion. It's really a huge hurdle for me to actually consider N+A=J feasible. Isn't it more reasonable that Ned and Ashara might have had a stillborn child, a proof of their love, which Ned had to give up for Cat? I could be wrong, actually, I'd love to be wrong. On the topic of his claim on the throne. I don't care, because I don't want to see him as KOT7K.
  12. It seems to me Lyanna didn't enjoy the thought of marrying Robert in the first place, let alone after him having killed her beloved (if they were indeed in love) Rhaegar. If she was truly kidnapped, things might have ended up differently.
