  1. The Dire Wolf added a post in a topic [ADWD Spoilers] Jon 1   

    I thought it was strange that he could sense all but one. I assumed the one was Lady....and thought maybe we were wrong about Grey Wind really being killed...

    What is this wrag link I am hearing about? I am fearful to even read the post subject lines in other forums because of spoilers, but I have seen that word before...

    The prophetic nature of the wolves
    Hello all! I just finished AGOT and am surprised there is no thread about this. I am finding out that there is a LOT of symbolism in these books, but the one that has stood out to me the most is how the wolves are prophetic when it comes to their masters.

    Nymeria, Arya's wolf: named after a warrior, has to run away to save herself after the fight at the river, and then Arya has the same fate.
    Lady: Sansa's wolf. The perfect little lady who has to be killed for associations and the lies and lack of mercy of Joffrey...will Sansa share that fate eventually?
    Shaggydog: Rickon and that wolf seem to be 100% on the same page. Will Rickon end up a half crazed loose cannon?

    I could go on, but some things I would mention are from season 2 of the HBO show...

    So, now when I read the books, I pay particular attention to the animals. Has anyone else noticed this? Are there any other examples like this in the book?Are there things I should watch for that may indicate what is to come for that character?
