  1. I don't think your going to find a clinical answer for why she survived fire and asphyxiation. This is a world with dragons, giants and ice zombies. She survived because of some sort of magics and hatch dragons, I think you'v just got to take it at face value. I don't think she died either, her heart never stopped beating and she never went unconscious,. I think Ilyrio is speaking of her metaphorical rebirth. She was once a frightened child and became a conqueror through her trails and tribulations.
  2. I definitely agree that Aegon V very much wanted to hatch dragons. I don't believe he'd sacrifice a babe of his own blood to try to do so though. If I remember correctly Dany would put her dragon eggs on top her pregnant belly, maybe that helped awaken them so they could be hatched later on. So maybe that's why Aegon V thought he needed a pregnant Rhaella at Summerhall. So she could place the eggs on her belly, then after that he'd put the eggs in the wildfire or something. Before the dance when Targ babes were born they'd but a egg in their cradle and somethings that egg would hatch and that dragon would become the child's. Perhaps that is the connection Aegon V was looking for, between pregnant Targaryen's and dragon hatching.
  3. Well, she was not afraid of a bloody sword.
  4. By the time Dany gets the Westeros there is a good chance she will probably be facing off against people who had little to do with Robert's Rebellion. Like (f)Aegon and Euron for an example, then when that's done she'll probably have to deal with the dead next. She won't be facing the foes of her father/brother but new foes who are after her crown.
  5. I don't know, I guess it would depend on what the one doing the ritual considers to be "king's blood". All I said is if Melisandre considers Mance's blood to be "king's blood" then I think she'd consider a Khal to have "king's blood" as well, since they both became/become kings/khals in very similar ways.
  6. Well if you want to get technical about it there is evidence for Jon/Satin as well. Jon comments on how pretty Satin is almost as many times as does Val. He also makes Satin his squire/top steward, passing over many men more qualified but not nearly as good looking.
  7. Depends on who you ask probably. Though if Melisandre considers Mance's blood as "king's blood" then I think she'd consider a Khal's blood "king's blood" as well. Like a Dothraki Khal, Mance got his kingship through being the strongest and smartest leader among his piers.
  8. Of course, lying and spying on your queen or king is treason. Daenerys even considers it as "one of her three treasons she will know." So she definitely considers it to be treason.
  9. Except after Drogo and the babe are dead Jorah doesn't seem to keen on going back to Pentos and doesn't mention it again. He wants her to leave with him and start a life together and sell the dragon eggs. He never mentions Illyrio or returning home to Bear Island. "My...queen," Ser Jorah said, going to one knee."My sword that was his is yours, Daenerys. And my heart as well, that never belonged to your brother. I am only a knight, and I have nothing to offer you but exile, but I beg you, hear me. Let Khal Drogo go. You shall not be alone. I promise you, no man shall take you to Vaes Dothrak unless you wish to go. You need not join the dosh khaleen. Come east with me. Yi Ti Quarth, the Jade Sea, Asshia by the Shadow. We will see all the wonders yet unseen, and drink what wines the gods see fit to serve us. Please, Khaleesi. I know what you intend. Do not. Do not. He basically proposes to her in hopes of them living in exile together like he did with Lynesse. No wonder why she took her chances in the funeral pyre. And that's his problem, he's so obsessed with her he doesn't treat her as he should. As his Queen. Lying to a Queen is treason and to continue to keep lying to her shows he has no real respect for her rule, in my opinion. Honestly, I think he figured he'd keep lying to her until he could bed her, for if she knew what he was doing she'd never trust him enough to even consider letting him in her bed. Had he truly been thinking with his heart instead of his member then he would have confessed his treason after she birthed her dragons. She seemed to be in a forgiving mood at the time, yet he still sends reports behind her back after she birthed the dragons.
  10. Then why does he want to take her to Asshai? That doesn't sound like a very safe place at all, and its far away from Varys and Ilyrio's network of influence. If he wanted to follow Illryio and Varys orders/plans to keep her safe and under their care wouldn't he have wanted to take Dany back to Pentos? Exactly which is why he does everything he can to get her to become attracted to him and eventually take him as a husband. Which he later flat out suggests to her after he kisses her and she rejects him because she wasn't into it. The kissing or the idea of him as a husband. I guess this could have been an added reason on top of why he already wanted her. If it never happened I doubt his feelings would be any different though. Jorah was a slave trader himself, I'm sure he knew some of the people he sold into slavery were raped or even worse. We'll have to agree to disagree on that. I don't think he idolized her, I'd say obsessed is a a better word for it. He still sends his reports to King's Landing without telling her after that happens. If he idolized her from that point I think he would have told her everything he'd been doing behind her back. Then after she sends him away from Meereen because he shows no remorse for his spying he goes to a brothel and finds a girl that looks like Dany to sleep with. I doubt he idolized that girl either.
  11. He may not love her but he certainly lusts after her and wants her sexually. As soon as Drogo falls from his horse Jorah tries to talk Daenerys into going with him to Asshai. That's what I meant by him taking Dany and getting as far away from where they are as possible. After Drogo is a zombie and her babe is dead he continues to try to get her to go with him to Asshai and other places. I doubt he just wants to be her father figure. In your opinion when does he fall in love/lust with Dany then, if he wasn't by the time he saved her from the poison wine?
  12. Jon, named after Rhaegar's second bestest friend after Arthur Dayne, Jon Connington. Then when Ned found him he named him after his foster father Jon Arryn. Rhaegar and Ned both named him the same thing.
  13. Jorah wanted to look like a hero to Daenerys so I wouldn't be surprised if he set the whole wine thing up. He wanted to be her brave Westerosi Knight in hopes she'd start falling for him. if Jorah thought for second that only Drogo would drink that poison wine I'd bet he'd do nothing. Wait for Drogo to die and take Dany and those dragon eggs and get out of dodge.
  14. Maybe they just wanted Margaery to become Robert's mistress, have him fall in love with her so he would listen to what she whispered into his ear. In theory she could suggest new members for the Small Council/City Watch/KG/ect. and fill King's Landing with Tyrells and their supporters. Then when Robert croaked the Tyrells would be in a prime position to put Renly on the Throne and then marry him to Margaery. Renly could put the remaining Lannisters under lock and key like he wanted to do with Eddard. All believed possible because of how much Bob moaned about his lost love Lyanna. Renly and company thought Margaery could be Robert's new Lyanna.
  15. I once had a theory that Rhaegar first went to the ruins of Summerhall because he was going to try and rebuild it all by himself without Aerys' permission. However the manual labor was too tough for the silver prince so he just got drunk and wrote a song while he was there. The song was a hit and when he sung it it made all the maidens weep. So that's why he kept going back to Summerhall, to write and sing songs that make maidens wet cry. Summerhal was his muse and it's where he sharpened his skills as a musician. If that doesn't make the ruins of Summerhall important I don't know what else possibly could.
  16. Maybe offer him Stormsend. Viserys could style himself Prince of Stormsend and Lord of the Stormlands. While the true power in the Stormlands would be Jon Con in Griffin's Roosts. Viserys gets a grand castle but not enough power to damage the reputation of the new Targ dynasty.
  17. True. I think she may have even been too soft on Jorah in my opinion. He started his service to her and her brother as a spy and only turned to her cause after he fell in love with the 13-14 year old Daenerys. He even forces a kiss on her not too long after she lost her husband and child and tries to talk her into marrying him. I think he's creepy and untrustworthy and that Dany should have let Strong Belwas pop his head off. Or have just let Daario kill him in singles combat, like he offered.
  18. Maybe because she was a very pretty 13 year old girl. Drogo must have been into that. Drogo had to get a look at her before proceeding with the wedding, if he wasn't pleased by her appearance he could have not gone through with it.
  19. Care to show me where I used the word "everyone?"
  20. It's implied by Daemon Sand that Oberyn(as well as Daemon) knew him well enough to think he was poison. Daemon was Oberyn's squire but perhaps Darkstar was Oberyn's squire before Daemon. Maybe Darkstar accompanied Oberyn, as his squire, when he went to Essos and signed the pact for the Viserys/Arianne marriage. If that got out to the Baratheons/Lannisters/Tyrells currently on the Iron Throne it could be seen as an act of treason. A secret that Darkstar knows that could put the Martells in a dangerous position with the Iron Throne if he is not caught and killed. Doran may think he could go to Cersei and tell her that the Martells have been plotting to take her son's Throne all along and most likely still are plotting. While not a huge secret since Doran has sent his children to make possible alliances with Targaryens, it could force a cautious Doran to make a move before he wants too
  21. Oh how often this gets forgotten. Then gets overlooked with people realizing Lyanna is his mother but thinking Rhaegar being his father is "too obvious."
  22. Ha! I actually used to be, but mostly more of Eastern Asian styles of swords, Katana's and Wakizashi's mainly. I always liked how the Samurai would name their swords and thought it carried their Bushido spirit. Since all VS swords have names I guess its where I see a connection.
  23. Of course, Catelyn had a huge role in what happened before and during the war of the five kings. She kid napped Tyrion which triggered Tywin's reaction of sending men into her homeland to raid the Riverlands. She negotiated a marriage for her son Robb Stark with Walder Frey so Robb's army could pass and rescue Riverrun. She also released Robb's most valuable hostage, Jaime Lannister without Robb's permission. Then she later died with Robb during the Red Wedding. These are all pretty major things. Also Robb's war was centered around Cat's homeland so her being there is justified in that sense. Where as there were no battles in the North during Robert's Rebellion. So it wouldn't make sense for Lyarra Stark( if she was alive) to follow Ned south and advise him on lands and people she knows nothing about. Lyarra was born a Stark and died a Stark. She didn't have connections to the south like Catelyn did. My point? I was just correcting you. When you said. In your theory here Jon would be the cousin of Dany and Val. Not a sibling. Unless I read it wrong. If I'm to understand your theory I have to be able to question something that I see as a mistake or don't understand. Thus is how we can have a proper discussion, right? There is no reason to get defensive about it.
  24. In my first read I didn't put too much thought into Val myself. However after going over the later Jon chapters I realized just how much Jon trusts and relies on her. She's one of the most dependable Free Folk characters in the story and one of the most mysteries as well, IMO. Then add in that it seems somewhat possible that her and Jon could end up being an item and I think it means she might end up being a bigger character then most think. Just my opinion anyway. Very interesting post though, Dark Sister has always been my favorite sword in the series and seems to have been around some of the most interesting plot lines and events. If that sword could talk...
  25. Did I ever you say you did? Sure, but if your putting forth a new theory that doesn't coincide with your earlier one it typically means you changed your mind. I merely asked why, since it seemed you were pretty certain your previous theory was correct the way you defended it. You also put a lot of time and text into your earlier theory you posted not so long ago, so I was a bit surprised. Well there is no evidence that Rhaegar was gay. So this is another "might" or "may." We hear very little about Lyarra Stark. It's possible she had already died before the Harrenhal tourney happened. We don't hear about her heading to the Riverlands for Brandon's wedding. Nor is she mentioned at all after Rickard and Brandon were killed. And there has never been a character that has mentioned her being around Ned during the rebellion. Also Catelyn never mentions meeting Ned's mother in any of her POV's, I feel like she would have if she did. IMO A sibling is a brother or sister, not a cousin.
