  1. Any evidence for that? Interesting theorie, but are there any hints in the text to support it?
  2. Well, they worked hard to earn these hatred...
  3. I don't! For sure - all we can do is speculation... Maybe it works somehow this way: Arya claims three deaths, so her "payment" is three deaths. Howland claims a favour, so his payment is another "favour" (Don Vito Corleone comes to mind...). Do we ever discover what this favour was or will be? I don't know. Or maybe the difference is that Howland asks for Justice. Maybe the price for Justice ist somehow different as if one asks the God's aka Devil for a personal benefit...??? And Arya doesn't ASK for anything, she STEALS the three lives!
  4. Well, ARE there really different Gods? Or is it just one with just different names in different countries or regions? One may even go further and ask if there are really a God and a Devil? Or are these two just a different point of view of the one and only supernatural beeing?
  5. Not directly. But after his prayers were answered Lyanna disapeared and the final outcome of this was Roberts rebellion. Lots of lives for the MFG...
  6. Do we? Or is this neverending quest for answers not life itself...??? Any answer is just another question...
  7. Now I get it, you think Oleanna has poisoned the cake and with adding the wine the poison starts to dissolve in the wine and starts choking the king. Possible, but not very likely in my opinion. With Joffrey cutting the cake, every single eye would be on this cake and it would be difficult to add something unnoticed. But with every eye on Joff and the cake - the wine will be unnoticed for a moment and this would be the perfect moment to drop the poison in. Just the same way as every illusionist in our word works - turn the audiences attraction to something different and in this very moment do your "miracle" unnoticed... This will as well explain why Joff can take several swallows without anything happens before! My money is still on the wine!
  8. Absolutely awesome! One starts to look if there's a sentence which has NO parallel, inversion, hint, sign...
  9. With GRRM writing the story, there are no unimportant side stories. More oiften the side stories develop into the real main storie! One reason why I love his writing this much - his love for details.
  10. Yes! That goes well with my personal point of view about religion: Faith is a way for poeple to explain things they did not or can not understand. This is quite natural - every sociaty develops some god to explain the unknown. Religion is the abuse of faith for only one reason - control the believers for personal benefit.
  11. This! If Dark Sister had remained in KL, surely it would have given to someone, not stowed awy secretly.
  12. I would add Samwell Tarly here. He confesses to John that he always dreamed to be a wizard, and he is in Oldtown at the Citadel now, and I think he will be trained in some knowledge of magic at least - to become what he has dreamed of! And speaking about the Citadel, one may add Maester Marwin as well, who had been in Asshai, certainly THE city if ist is about sorcery.
  13. Varys? Did I missed something? As far as I remember Varys states that he hates sorcery and sorcers because he lost his manhood at one.
  14. Support this Ned asked Cersei why she hates Robert this much. She answers she was in love first, but in their wedding night Rob was drunk and said Lyanna to her.
  15. Most likely he did not know the exact plan, but for me it is much unlikely that an man like Varys does not figueres out that there is something fishy going on... But even if he had known enough to stop the purple wedding - why should he? He knows Joff well enough to see that he will be in no way a good king, especially that his actions are not predictable (Neb being beheadet instead of sent to the wall) - and this would be a real big problem for a powerbroker as Varys!
