A Compendium of Theories v.2

Can I just ask whether the spoiler tags in the OP still open correctly and display all the content for people? I'm having problems with them, and I'm not sure if it's just my device/internet (which are temperamental at best) or an issue on the site.

I see only one spoiler tag, but when I click on it, a very long list appears, and it seems to me that all the text displays, and does so correctly  (ending with links to westeros.org projects and links and other running threads/westeros.org subsections).

Kevin, I'm also having issues with the first post. The page locks up anytime I attempt to show the list of theories at the start of the thread.

My theory has proven pretty decent this far but the problem is that it's massively unprecise because of all the possibilities. Based on this idea, I've been able to decently well predict some things in newer books, but also pondered tons of (at least to this point) useless ideas. The core idea, though, is that in the series things occur in pairs. Martin really loves to show us something and then turn the qhole set-up around to be as opposite as possible.

There is a pompous king out there? Lol, it's not a king, it's a bastard. See that shabby bastard over there? That's a real king.

Knightly knights turning out to be or becoming monstrous (either appearance-wise or in other ways). And grotesque figures doing the actual "knightly" deeds.

"Bad guys" becoming good and "good guys" going bad. A classic, but I'm sure Martin will use it in the most horrible and delicious ways possible. Also, good intentions leading to horrible or even worse than horrible consequences, cowards being the real heroes etc.

Symbolism turning around. For example: Sansa "the little bird", being naive and religious as the Hound creeps her out. Guess what: there'll be an "evil mastermind -Sansa" and Sandor the Sparrow. 

This whole point has lead me to find a ton of connections between characters and events... But also speculating that the endgame of the story is highly likely to corrupt and make the main antagonists from all the "sympathetic good guys" we all have grown to love, and possibly also give us the slimiest, least pleasant "heroes" of all times.

Here you go: http://acornhall.tumblr.com/

 

 

 

Includes links to the various threads on this forum as well as Yeade's seven part essay, Lady Gwyn's 'Grand Riverlands Conspiracy' and Bran Vras' 'The Winterfell Huis Clos.'

Would anyone know if there's a different link for this? I followed this one, and it's something else altogether. This is now in Polish. It's called Acorn Hall still.

Or am i missing something?

Any theories that contradict Jon Snow being the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, and Daenerys being the daughter of Aerys I and Queen Rhaella are generally considered to be crackpot.

Well I suppose I am to be considered crackpot, as I don't buy R+L=J, yet. Where does Young Griff fall into this? Who are his folks?

Maybe you are, maybe you aren't. I would say the leading theory on Aegon is that he is not actually the son of Rhaegar Targaryen, and that he is a descendant of Daemon Blackfyre, but there are many variations, and the Aegon theories are much less widely accepted than RLJ and the Daenerys presumption.
