  1. We can only hope Voice to bring Papa Crow over to the Dark side
  2. I think this is right he can be an active participant.However,as that incident showed it was in real time.And I have no doubt that because they can glimpse possible futures they can nudge individuals in directions they want them to go.However,to quote ehem "Bloodraven" "The past is already written and cannot be changed" There would be a serious problem from a writing standpoint if Bran could change the past. There would be no such thing as a real history.How would we know what was ever real? Bran would just be changing things trying to get a result that he could never change.Oy vey!!! It doesn't matter how many eyes he has, and how long he does it.There is no way to skillfully manuvere every detail over eons across time and space to ensure one possible outcome amongst gazillions of other possibilities. What would happen is an endless loop.Names and places may change but each generation will be doomed to continue the loop unless the greenseer pulling the strings gets taken out and the loop stops once and for all.Fading into the trees as he should. Lastly,there should be evidence of Bran changing history because again it doesn't matter how many eyes he has across past, present and future it still won't be enough to discern every bit of detail. Present manipulation to achieve some future glimpsed through the trees yeah. But changing somethings in a past that we can never be sure was in the first place? That's The Matrix wrapped up in some Cloud Atlas type concoction with Terminator 1&2 as sprinklings man.That is the worst kind of prison....For us to.
  3. Hahaha the guess is what makes it cool.I will mull it over some more.
  4. Ahhh yes,i think I recall that Addendum above.
  5. Ok not Robert....Ummm, Jamie? When Mamma and Papa Mountain gives birth to The Hound they tell themselves they have a suitable heir.They 1.Throw Clegane down a well and his cries eventually draw the attention of a mummera troop.They take him on as part of a show.He swears sweet revenge on the establishment.Like Stewie ,plots to take over the world.He so good he is soon performing in KL.Doing little side jobs for Varys. 2.He's gets so good eventually he forms his own Dwarf troop,employing about 30.The McNugs are in high demand.He forgets his plans of revenge because he's find a family and a purpose. But when crap hits the fan and Cersie starts collecting Dwarf heads the members of McNugs are slaughtered. Revenge is back on and his ire is aimed at Cersie.Using the passageways he learned from Varys;he sneaks into Tommen's room and takes him out. After grief sex Cersie convinces Jamie to seize the throne.
  6. I may be misremembering but what was it Aerys thought Jamie disobeyed him about?
  7. In a world where Gregor Clegane is born a dwarf. 1.The Mountain never hurts The Hound,seeing as the Hound doesn't see his height as a hindrance.Plus,The Hound would kick his butt.But Clegane ensures his brother is successful and have a close relationship. 2.Without the burns The Hound is not only fierce but he's a good looking chap without those scars and continues to kick ass in battles. 3.He is loyal of course to the Lannisters being Joff's right hand man and his brother accompanies him to WF when Robert goes to meet Ned. 4.Meets Tyrion in a brothel and they hit it off.Tyrion aches about how Cersie hates him. 5.Clegane instantly hates Cersie.Notices Jamie and Cersie sneaking off and follows them.He's a dwarf and is pretty good at not being noticed.Sees Jamie and Cersie banging.Sees Jamie push Bran instantly sneaks out from his corner and raises the alarm. 6.Jamie and Cersie are pretty much caught with pants down.As well as trying to kill Bran. Robert goes great ape.Jamie demands trial by combat.Robert says "Mofo you got caught in the act" Jamie and Cersie heads roll... Robert is still King.
  8. Dragonsbone hold on we don't know if this is what Mankytoes have in mind. Plus,I think there are other options...Remember a few guesses ans the closest guess wins next turn.
  9. This is funny.The answer is correct so I will accept it.Remember though it has to be in the vein of what's different.In a nutshell: In a world where Howland Reed doesn't go to the Tourney: 1.The KOTLT doesn't make his/her appearance.Tourney continues on as usuall. 3.Lyanna gets crowned. Mankytoes you have the next counterfactual my friend.
  10. I wasn't thinking of him...But I am so curious and I have a feeling you might split my side....Defend that some more just because I would love to hear it.
  11. This is really cool Weasel Pie.I love your insight with the Marvel/Asoiaf connections and I can't wait to see more.
  12. Any "The Big Bang Theory" fans on the board? Borrowed this game from show and thought it would be fun. First, a question is posted about a hypothetical world that differs from the real world (in this case ASOIAF) in one key aspect. To answer, you must post the answer and your defense of why the answer is right. An example question and answer: In a world where mankind is ruled by a giant intelligent beaver, what food is no longer consumed? A: Cheese danish. Defense: In a world ruled by a giant beaver, mankind builds many dams to please the beaver overlord. The low lying city of Copenhagen is flooded. Thousands die. Devastated, the Danes never invent their namesake pastry. After 10-20 guesses you may reveal your answer OR give a hint. The answers should be convoluted; that's the goal. The person with the closest answer (asker's discretion) will ask the next question. I will get the ball rolling with one: In a world where Howland Reed doesn't go to the Harrenhall Tourney ,who is crowned QOLAB? Let's have a bit of fun.
  13. To weigh in on a different angle.I don't subscribe to the theory that Bran affect the past. "And through such gates you and I may gaze at the past The past remains the past. We can learn from it, but we cannot change it. Once you have mastered your gifts, you may look where you will and see what the trees have seen, be it yesterday or last year or a thousand ages past." I believe him when he says they cannot change the past.From what I see they can: 1.Influence and manipulate individuals.Via Skinchanging nature to bamboozle the masses into thinking the gods wish X or Z. 2.Glimpse the future. Based on what they glimpse they can alter it by doing # 1. My theory is this really is about Skinchanging.We have seen a very common theme in this story and it has to do with escaping death.The Skinchangers and the second life aspect. The prologue of Dance shows two possibilities. 1.What happens when a Skinchanger dies. 2.Revelation that if they are dying they can "body snatch"as V6 tried to do with Thistle.V6 rightfully deduced that his gift would die if he successfully took Thistle. But what if you had the means to get bodies with "the gift" This is what I think has been happening in Bloodraven' s cave. Old Nan would get the Brandon's mixed up thinking they were all one.I think this is a hint that they are in a sense. Not that Bran is going back in time.But that the original Bran(Bran the Builder) has been;with the help of a few tree dreams luring suitable replacements when his current body reaches to the point Bloodraven did. He's been watching until the situation as of agot' s made it possible to snag a vulnerable and perfect replacement. It's the Changling myth over again.BR is really BTB and what other poor souls that got consumed by the trees. This is what I think is happening to our Bran he is slowly becoming sympathetic because the trees (BTB) is/are "teaching him" aka slowly and by subterfuge pulling a V6. Its about never dying never going Into the trees so you can continue to watch and affect an outcome by using Skinchanging abilities to manipulate peoples choices. This is an awesome thread for discussing the Bran question.
  14. Wassuppp guys??? Nice to see that we are going strong in the drought. I tend to agree with Faceless men not being Valyrian in nature.They do seem to have some similarities with skinchanging.I am especially intrigued by how the first Faceless man was said to have emerged. I take no release date huh???
  15. I've never heard that one.But interesting idea. I think there is a difference.Its clear that her fires can be seen as "two way" I.e. Her seeing Bran and Bloodraven. The fact that in every instance she is trying to interpret what she sees or maybe hears isn't the issue. That being said I disagree that Mel is pretensive concerning "what" she can do.I don't see evidence that she has lied about her powers.If anything her POV doesn't reveal a lack of skill but humility. You see that play out where she internally questions what may be compared to what she says. So if she says she can speak to long dead kings and children not yet born.I don't doubt that.I doubt what "she" took away from her fires.I doubt her interpretation of what she heard or saw. Lastly,I am not speaking about Mel's state of being when I say " she likes being alive." My point is she knows Stannis is not the man to trifle with and less she ends up herself on the crispy side she convinced him she is powerful. Stannis doesn't believe he is this fabled hero.He believes to put the kingdom right is his duty by right. Mel is in nowhere Trump territory.Her visions are accurate her understanding of them...Not so.
