  1. Crackpot Theory: A+L=J and What It Could Mean

    First of all as I see it, in a time of war and turmoil there is no rightful heir, there are claimants. The rightful heir is for times of peace. Since more than one person claim the throne and have supporters to their cause only war’s end will determine the rightful heir and he/she will be the victor. Second, if Jon is Aerys’ son then he is certainly a bastard and has no right, no claim and no authority to “gift” the throne. Dany’s arc isn’t pointless. She is present since the first book, one of the most prominent POV characters and (believed) the last of a great and powerful house, plus has a great asset, her dragons (if she proves able to control and use them properly). Even if many find her storyline boring I doubt they find it pointless. Lastly, when do you propose that Aerys raped Lyanna? I assume you believe that Lyanna was in KL (?). The timeline doesn’t match and how do you explain the way Lyanna was found at the ToJ later on?
  2. Rickon, the Black Wolf.

    Even Summer, Bran's direwolf, who is an outstanding character in the series has the same coloring as the rest. I think that making Shaggydog special in coloring might imply something, the same way Ghost's color may imply something about Jon's origins and character. By that, I don't necessarily mean that Rickon will turn dark or wild but that he will have a distinguishing role to play. Otherwise I see no point in making him black and not grey as the rest.
  3. Rickon, the Black Wolf.

    I don't know if this is of any importance but I have been thinking about it a lot. It is common talk that Ghost's colouring has a deeper meaning. Why not be the same for Rickon's Shaggydog as well? I mean, I see everywhere written how Ghost is different from his brothers, but Shaggy is too, in a less obvious way. The rest of the direwolves have grey fur and yellow eyes whereas Shaggy has black fur and green eyes. I think Rickon will play an important role even in an inderict way due to his age but still he will have a contribution to the story. And maybe his direwolf's name implies this role, perhaps he will help reveal a "shaggydog story" that's been building up.
