  1. Considering what had happened to Elia and her kids it may have made her want to jump even more. Especially considering Roberts reaction to it.
  2. One of the Hightower ladies seems like a decent choice. Got money and status, but also the Tyrells might be happy-ish with it due to Mace married to Alerie makes him Uncle to the future king. If the Reach is tightly bound to the crown there really isn't much Tywin can do to cause the crown any issues.
  3. Maybe they are both old and new. Old in that they are a first men house, but maybe like the Tyrells they served as Stewards for the Starks for a long time and when Torrhen's Square was built they were given it for their service. They could be a old house but relatively newly landed.
  4. Water Gardens probably, or Evenfall. Lemonwood seems in a nice place but we know nothing about it.
  5. Maybe he also wanted his daughter to fill out a bit first and have a better chance of surviving childbirth.
  6. I think Dacey shouldn't be underestimated, she has seen a lot of real fighting in war. She's surely been trained in her life considering the women of Bear Island seem to have quite a combat culture embodied by the Mormont women, and she was on Robb's personal guard. She's also big at 6ft, not as big as Brienne granted but likely bigger than Asha. Obara I'm not sure about she's described as big boned and tall. We don't really know enough about any of them when it come to fighting beyond Brienne who's fought multiple people across many POV chapter. I'd go Brienne then Dacey, then Asha, and Obara last simply because she's the one where there is the least information to go on.
  7. Is Jon the same as he was pre-death? There doesn't seem to me to be much of a difference at all, its not raally what I was expecting.
  8. Why did Sana have to become some terrified meek thing in desperate need of Theon to help her when she was the one pushing to escape Winterfell. Couldn't both Sansa and Brienne have been ''strong'' in that scene or is that not possible for two women at the same time. Theon even needed to nod at her to accept Brienne, and Sana who prided herself on being a Lady and knowing all about chivalry and the house sigils and words, didn't know how to accept Brienne? Bullshit.
  9. Maybe they were small fry in Essos and were trying to find a place where they could be the big dogs. Essos has been the place that has been full of many powerful civilisations, Westeros by comparison probably seemed like an easier place to carve out something of their own. Also they maybe knew nothing of the COTF until they got there and once they were there and realised they only had two enemies to beat to have the run of the place it might have looked like quite an appealing prospect.
  10. What chapter was this?
  11. Quentyn or Trystane Martell. Both are age appropriate and neither seem like they'd be cruel or threatening to her Plus she'd have a nice life in Dorne with less pressure on producing sons and not being the one needed to provide an heir. Although her fair skin might all melt off there, but you can't have it all. Garlan Tyrell wouldn't be a bad choice either, he's got all the knightly qualities she wanted when she was younger.
  12. Riverrun with the Blackfish. Plus he'd learn how to be the number two brother as well and what that entails. Edited: Although I suppose at this point the Blackfish is still in the Vale but even then he'd still be a good person to squire for and Bran would be with family which Ned would probably feel comfortable with.
  13. Considering that Mina's youngest child is 16 in 299 its reasonable to assume she was already married in 281 and had been for a little while at least.
  14. Who else was there for Jamie from the LP houses though? Arryn had nothing, Lyanna was not available, Elia Tywin had said no to and se was now married, Baratheons had no daughters, the only other option is the Tyrells and those two seem like they may have been married or betrothed already at that point. Lysa was really the only option if Tywin wanted to have his heir marry someone from a LP House.
  15. Maybe his mother was a Bulwer and he took after her more than his Hightower family. But most likely just because he was big and strong like a bull and wore a white cloak.
