About Luthien Targaryen

  1. I have a theory that the prophesy is about Tyrion's failure to consummate his marriage to Sansa. Sansa is the maid, we know this because she's the same maid as has the serpents in her hair at the feast. Tyrion is the giant, as he's often alluded to be. The castle made of snow is Sansa's innocence, because she's from the North and is "as pure as the driven snow". It could also refer to Winterfell since that's supposed to be what Tyrion gets for marrying Sansa and having a child by her. It's a bit lame, but there have been lamer double entendres in the series. Or maybe it's something that's yet to happen. I really can't see how two kids fighting in the snow is worthy of prophesy.
  2. I've also been working on this theory ( in my case it came from a mention of a NW=LB, and when i realised that Jon could well have been the 3rd child of Rhaegar Targaryen, when the first two had been "broken" and the 3rd's birth had led to the death of the mother, i got a shiver down my spine.) I also thought the NW oath "I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the wall. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn...." Just to move on from "Needle was Jon Snow's smile", Jon gave somebody a sword, Needle to Arya. Needle's quite a distinctive sword. If somehow (and i know this is barking mad) Jon giving Arya Needle makes Needle Lightbringer, and Arya Azor Ahai. Nobody is quite as "reborn" as Arya (well, maybe Beric Dondarrion, but hey...) She's seen a great deal of smoke and salt, the House of Black and White and her trial of blindness could be passing under the shadow and well, give her time to work on the waking dragons stuff ok? Arya for AA, she's got my vote!
  3. Got one! From Stannis, of all people: "Yes, I should have come sooner. If not for my Hand, I might not have come at all."
  4. I'd recommend anything by Neil Gaiman or China Mieville. I loved Perdido Street Station and Good Omens is one of my favourite books ever. Nobody's mentioned Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast yet.... Give it a go, it starts with Titus Groan, then Gormenghast and then fizzles out a bit with Titus Alone, because the author died before he could finish it (there was a fourth book planned). Peake was a bit mad, even by his own admission, and so's this, Gormenghast is an ancestral seat of of the Groans, and it's a bit like Winterfell on acid...especially if it had a kitchen boy who was an unholy mix of Littlefinger and Hot Pie. It can be hard going but it boasts the best named characters in fantasy fiction, I mean you can't go wrong with people called Prunesquallor can you?
  5. Ok, time to bring the tone down a little: I am the only one who keeps misreading "Ser Marq Piper" as "Ser Maris Piper", do we have a potato knight as well as an onion knight?
