  1. I agree. I don´t even recall how many times the faith rebelled.
  2. am i the only one who thinks it was a mistake to include the targaryen reigns in the world book? I mean, i felt we already knew everything that mattered.. very little new information or mysteries, or controversies. very few new characters that are worth remembering. i liked the new details on Tyanna of Pentos. but thats just about it. maybe other chapters of fire and blood have more to offer.. like aegons regency. I hope.
  3. It was Gormon Tyrell. i think Mace Tyrell takes the regency after Kevan dies, and fills every position of the Small council with Tyrell allies. The citadel might send Gormon Tyrell to replace Pycell. on the other hand Gormon has taken Walgraves duties, so he might have a big role in Sams arc.
  4. my take, TWow, will be a bloodbath Beyond the wall: Bloodraven, the COTF, Jojen and Hodor when the WW attack the cave.Cotter Pyke (and all his men), at the failed mission of hardhome. all the NW (save jon) between the weeper taking the shadow tower, the chaos at CB, and the giants attacking East-watch by the sea... and eventually the Wall coming down on them at the end of TWOW North: Mors umber, Arnolf Karstark, Hoosteen Frey, ASHA, during the battle of ice.. Roose Bolton, killed by ramsay. Ramsay eventually either in Battle of bastard or when Stannis takes winterfell.. i think whorsebane will die as well. Mance... Riverlands:..Harwyn Plumm, Lyle Crackhall both killed by the BwB..... Lem (in a trial by combat against brienne to judge jaime). Roslin Frey, giving birth to the Tully heir... Walder Frey and most of his family during the red wedding 2.0. West: Edmure and jeyne, when the blackfish attempts to rescue them. The Vale: Harry the Heir in the tourney, killed by Lyn Corbray. Littlefinger by Sansa, Crownlands: Lancel Lannister in Cersei trial against Ser Robert. Margaery after he own trial. Tommen poisoned by Tyene Sand Stormlands: Mace Tyrell. The connington hostages. Iron Islands: Erik Ironmaker, when theon returns to the Iron Islands with the remaining Ironborn and Dagmer Dorne: Areo Hotah and balon swann, killed by Obara and Darkstar. The REach: Aeron, baelor hightower, Gunthor Hightower and Paxter redwyne at the battle of the arbor. As for other hightower and citadel characters, when euron takes Oldtown, who knows?. i think sam makes it out. the rest are fair game. Essos: Barristan, Victarion. the green grace Hizdahr zo loraq.. all the yunkish slavers. Bloodbeard. Illyrio Mopatis. Mago, Jhaqo. the waif, Harys Swyft. and keep counting.
  5. Poor george. Honestly, i try to turn my brain off each time i watch GOT, but..... the dialogue, the writting, the inmensely stupid plot twits..its awful. How could he let this happen...
  6. Don´t do it!!!!!!!! wait until they are finished.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. exactly the kind of answer i would expect.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
