    GRRM / Mountain Minions

    @Legitimate_Bastard May I ask why you shared my essay in this thread? Were you referring to some specific section from The Tolkienic Song of Ice and Fire? As its author, I'm simply curious why you decided that it's relevant here...

    References and Homages

    dân = fire Therefore, Dan + nerys = Daenerys, The Lady of Fire This explains Queen Naerys' name as well. Fits too well to be a coincidence, especially when we know that GRRM often uses Welsh as source of inspiration (Tyrion, Gwen from Dying of the Light etc.)

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Do we know who those brothers are? Or did Pycelle mean Mace's 'brothers in law' - Alerie Hightower's brothers? (Baelor Brightsmile, Garth Greysteel and Humfrey). Taking the connections between House Hightower and The Citadel into consideration, Pycelle might be trying hard not to paint his patrons in a bad light - there can't be even a shadow of a hint that they're not loyal to King Joffrey.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    The World of Ice and Fire provides such table, but if you don't have it, The Wiki of Ice and Fire provides such list as well: you can find it here, under section 'Targaryen Family Tree'. Here is a thread listing many known errors in The World of Ice and Fire: I'm certain similar threads about ASOIAF exist, but the only ones I found are in Polish, so that won't help you much. But googling or using the search option on this forum should bring something on this topic. And welcome to the forums Lady Cerwyn!

    Maybe she feared that someone will find it and even without understanding the content start wondering why Catelyn Stark receives encrypted letters from the Eyrie?

    Errors in the WOIAF

    You're welcome, but I wasn't the one to notice Corn King references in ASOIAF.

    Errors in the WOIAF

    First of all, Westeros isn't medieval Europe, so even if it had maize, tomatoes and potatoes it woudn't be an 'oversight'. GRRM can choose to add anything he wants to his world. It seems that GRRM knows which plants did and which didn't grow in medieval Europe - Westeros has no potatoes and tomatoes, but he chose to include corn for some reason. On the other hand , 'corn' simply means grain. For example there is mythical figure named Corn King which is often referenced in ASOIAF. From Wiktionary: However, corn in American English meaning of this word is mentioned in ASOIAF: Turkeys live in Westeros as well:

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Some have speculated it's Septon Barth's 'Unnatural History' - Baelor had all copies he could find burned, but Dorne wasn't part of the Seven Kingdoms back then.

    Puns and Wordplay

    That's House Bolling - their sigil is 'Vairy orange and blue, upon a black canton, a golden stag beneath an orange bend sinister' (Vairy tenné and azure, on a canton sable a stag or debruised by a bend sinister of the first). But they might be a branch of House Durrandon, not of Baratheons... There's another house with Durrandon/Baratheon stags - House Wensington (Two golden trumpets crossed on a blue field, beneath a gold chief with three black stags).

    I'm happy that my thread was like an egg which cracked from the sweetsunray's heat and gave birth to a thousand thousand ravenous blue tigers.

  15. It's perfect time for Elvis Presley's Blue Christmas - guess why I like this song so much...

    'I'll have a Blue Christmas without you
    I'll be so blue just thinking about you
    Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
    Won't be the same dear, if you're not here with me

    And when those blue snowflakes start falling
    That's when those blue memories start calling
    You'll be doin' all right, with your Christmas of white
    But I'll have a blue, blue blue blue Christmas

    You'll be doin' all right, with your Christmas of white,
    But I'll have a blue, blue, blue blue Christmas'
