  1. im not sure either. but the visions are the response to Dany asking for help to understand the prophecy of the treasons, mounts and fires. And then the undying show her the visions of the slayer of lies, daughter of death, and Bride of fire.. 9 visions that match the three triplets of treasons, mounts and fires. It would make sense if the 9 visions corresponded each to one of the treasons, fires or mounts profetizad before. even if the order is not clear to the reader... instead of just being a compilation of visions of unrelated events.
  2. i like the idea of the visions being related to the three triples of treasons, mounts and fires. Viserys i suppose could be the treason for Gold, since he tried to steal the dragon eggs to sell them Rhaegar though? what is rhaegar doing?. Maybe he is the treason for love... he betrayed his family to elope with Lyanna? will dany see it like that in the sense that it makes jon the true king? the vision does bring up Lyanna and how Rhaegar trully loved her.. it seems weak. Silver is the mount to bed? Drogon is the mount to dread? which vision represents drogon? maybe if Drogon is the true Stallion that mounts,.. then Rhaego who was supposed to be the stallion was the death that paid for Drogons life.
  3. looking forward to the reigns of the kings that we know little of. The dragon sons will cover Aenys and MAegor, Rogue Prince and Patq covered Viserys and AegonII/Rhaenyra. i doubt the book will give us much more that what we already know/will know of their respective reigns. that leaves just Aegon I, Jaehaerys, and Aegon III. Mostly im interested about Aegon III and the fate of the last dragons. That should give us plenty to speculate on.
  4. Honestly i didn´t finish reading it. You lost me at some point with Euron bedding Arianne. Ill have to give it another try during the weakend. That said, grand theories that manage to explain and interconect some of the biggest mysteries in the books always deserve praise, and you certainly gave it a lot of effort. Euron attempting godhood by second life in a dragon is a fascinating concept trully. Also, you got me hooked at the start with the dragon second life. We have been speculating for years the mysteries of dragonrinding and how similar they are with skinchanging. How the Geodawnian, or ancient asshai, or protovalyrians (call them as you wish) who were the original creators of dragons, first came to westeros seeking the secrets of greenmagic seems like a clue . The dragon second life is just taking skinchanging a step further Im surprised you missed it, but there are a couple of very suspicious examples: if Helaena was murder it would make sense. Tessarion (daeron) joining Seasmoke (addam) against the vermithor (Hugh Hammer) and Silverwing (Good Queen Alysanne) grieving for Vermithor (Jaehaerys the wise) seems like second life kind of behavior.
  5. BrydenBfish made a compelling case why in makes most sense to have Mace leading the tyrell army himself. The Last storm indeed foreshadows the way the battle will play out, and the mud will have a key role here, like in Agincourt. probably Mace won´t know how to handle elephants either. That said, i don´t think Randyl will be leading the Van. Someone must stay behind to rule KL. This is my take: after Kevan and Pycelle die, Mace will have the mayority of the Small council, therefore he will be able to take the regency (like he wanted back in AFFC). He will in turn name Tarly as hand of the king. one of the first orders of business will be to One he believes his daughter to be safe, he will march his army against Aegon. Leaving someone in charge of the city. The situation will be caothic. and once the news of the Tyrell defeat in both stormalands and the south against euron reaches KL...: And then we will have Margs trial... which of course will go very badly for her ending the Tyrell regime and whatever is left of the Lannister-Tyrell alliance. the Sand snakes will kill tommen. Ending TWOW, Jaime will return with whatever remains of the lannister army from the riverlands, so that Grrm can unfold the third and last act, with Mad Queen Cersei blowing the city and Jaime the valonqar in ADOS.
  6. agreed. you are not. let your imagination run free. we have another woman passing as a men, to enter a male only organization (IIRC the small council does not allow women to serve.... your examples of female masters of whispers were kind of informal). Salleras. Also Sweets, kind of another Valyrian (he is said to have purple eyes)... though he is an hermaphrodite IRRC
  7. exactly the kind of answer i would expect.
  8. What else can they be? Kings Blood has power beyond human sacrifice? you misunderstood. I was rebutting your claim that when varys changes his tone of voice, we should pay special attention, because thats when we know he is telling the truth. This happens in ADWD and ACOK. Yet if one is a believer of the (f)Aegon theory (except the double swap version), we "know" he is lying in ADWD. How can we still believe the change in tone is an identifier of truth? if anything, its when the biggest lies come in. agreed. Still if he is fake, then the identity of his mother should be explained at some point. Whether a random whore or a sion of house blackfyre, or a decedenat of Aerion, it still needs explanation.
  9. Thats where i was going for. Illyrios involvment in the targaryen restoration is usually explained by (f)Aegon theory. He is placing his son on the iron throne. Fair enough But Varys? Well readers asume he is Serras brother, therefore Aegon his nephew. But if Varys is Serra.. then it makes more sense IMHO. He/she could be the implied female line of house blackfyre... or the Brightflame descedent. Depending on which version of the (f)aegon theory you prefer. We know he kind of dresses like a woman. Painting his fingernails and all that. It would be an awesome hint if Varys were Serra. again, i admit its a weak theory. Still it has been speculated over the years that Varys was really a woman. I never saw much use in that. What would be the point? unless, he was specifically Serra. Then yes. The Varys being a woman theory would make much more sense.
  10. hahaha i know. i thought the same (i still do, sort of...) i dont` know if there is a thread that develops the theory, since well... theres not much on the evidence department i admit. theres a bunch of threads and posts that speculate on it. This is what i remember: Theres a bunch of times, Varys is associated with women. We can all agree he is pretty effeminate. The Eunuch cover is pretty genius, since it would explain that, as well as the lack of facial hair. The Spider symbology is as usually associated with femininity. What would varys (serra) know of female seducation? Many readers have pointed out these line to support the Varys Targaryen theory. But it works this way as well i think In fact, think of Lysonno Maar for a second. A Valyrian transvestite from lys, who serves as master of whispers in the golden company.... exactly like Varys (serra) just the other way around. he is a man who dresses like a woman, We know like 3 things about Serra. one of which: The eunuch spread his soft hands. (...) who will mourn poor Varys then? North or south, they sing no songs for spiders." He reached out and touched Ned with a soft hand. (...) Varys gave the king an unctuous smile and laid a soft hand on Ned's sleeve. (...) Varys was wringing his soft hands together, (...) "The poor child," murmured Varys. "A love so true and innocent, Your Grace, it would be cruel to deny it … and yet, what can we do? Her father stands condemned." His soft hands washed each other in a gesture of helpless distress. (...) "Why are you so helpful, my lord Varys?" he asked, studying the man's soft hands (...) Varys stood over the brazier, warming his soft hands. (...) "Indeed." Varys laid a soft hand on the queen's sleeve. (...) Varys caught up with him as he was crossing the yard. "My lord," he said, a little out of breath. "You had best read this at once." He held out a parchment in a soft white hand. "A report from the north." (...) He stood in a pool of shadow by a bookcase, plump, pale-faced, round-shouldered, clutching a crossbow in soft powdered hands. Silk slippers swaddled his feet. "Varys?" Theres like 6 or 7 men in the entire series described as having "soft hands"...each one just once. Except Varys. Virtually every time he appears.
  11. a) he hates sorcery and sorcerers, yet as far as we know he is just fine if (f)Aegon marrys dany and conquer the seven kingdoms with dragons.... "dragons are magic ser davos". Kind of hypocrite dont you think? b ) I don`t see how GRRM will bring out the motives for the castration later on. It could happen, but for now it has been useless bit of information. c) Unless you believe that Aegon is a true targaryen, or the double swap version of the (f)Aegon theory.. then you know Varys was lying to Kevan in ADWD..How can you claim his change of tone is evidence of saying the truth back in ACOK? if anything he is telling his biggest lie when his voice changes. d) i agree. we have no evidence of her existance. Yet she will be somewhat important for the plot. There is no point in George bringing that up, unless she will impact the story to some degree. We already had one example of the rich merchant that marries the bedslave.
  12. most memorable, and probably false part of his story. Whats the point? are we going to meet that mysterious wizard at some point? was the ceremony useful to advance the main plot in some way? The demon is going to make an appearance? the only relevant effect storywise of the castration ritiual is that apparently varys hates magic after that....yet he is willing to invade westeros with dragons ... sounds like crap to me....completely useless information as far as im concerned (at least for now). Theres really no way of telling what is true and what not about varys. Well yes. Serra could be just a cover story. point was. Serra = (f)aegons mother. all her backstory could very well be false.
  13. Never liked much the theory of Varys being secretly a woman. I never thought it added anything useful to the plot. But lately i have changed my mind to a particular scenario. Varys = Serra kind of solves a number of issues presented in this thread. granted it lacks much more evidence to be credible. But still, i think it would be an awesome twist (if Aegon was indeed son of illyrio and "serra")
  14. When the bodies of Kevan and Pycelle are found the next morining, Mace will take the regency and most of the small council. Pycelle was a key witness against his daughter, having publicly accuse her of drinking moon tea. Him dying makes the tyrells look guilty. Killing both Pycelle and Kevan looks like a power play to take the regency.
  15. i seem to have missed a couple of essays. like finding a wrapped christmas gift. quality stuff for the weekend, Ill come back later.
