    Yes sir re in duty, the LC did do that.

    The execution of Janos Slynt was personal and it was not justice.

    I'm butting in ---- what happened before those two chapters Slynt does like to bluster as exhibited in the below quote. . A Clash of Kings - Tyrion II Once Janos Slynt realized he was not to be summarily executed, color returned to his face. He thrust his jaw out. "We will see about this, Imp. Dwarf. Perhaps it will be you on that ship, what do you think of that? Perhaps it will be you on the Wall." He gave a bark of anxious laughter. "You and your threats, well, we will see. I am the king's friend, you know. We shall hear what Joffrey has to say about this. And Littlefinger and the queen, oh, yes. Janos Slynt has a good many friends. We will see who goes sailing, I promise you. Indeed we will."/ Tyrion sends Janos to the Wall. Then I guess the ravens start flapping. Marsh is begging for men. Pycelle speaks up in the below quote while in conversation with Tywin & Tyrion. A Storm of Swords - Tyrion IV The Wall is a world apart, and news oft reaches them late." Pycelle bobbed his head up and down. "What shall I tell Marsh concerning the men he begs for? Shall we convene the council . . ." "There is no need. The Night's Watch is a pack of thieves, killers, and baseborn churls, but it occurs to me that they could prove otherwise, given proper discipline. If Mormont is indeed dead, the black brothers must choose a new Lord Commander." Pycelle gave Tyrion a sly glance. "An excellent thought, my lord. I know the very man. Janos Slynt."/ To my way of thinking the fix is in. I dunna know how the raven flapping fix is in but it appears while Janos is at East Watch there was some hanky panky between the IT & the NW. Slynt and his troupe minus Deem, had been at EW long enough for Thorne's ship to arrive from KL. This is where my confusion starts ---- Slynt was sent to the Wall in disgrace by Tyrion. BUT Pycelle has suggested to Tywin that Slynt would be a good LC. So far I have mentioned book 2 & 3 up until the time Slynt actually arrived at CB. For some reason Slynt thinks he has authority to command the NW and the NW allow it. Why did the NW allow Slynt to be the cock of the walk? A Storm of Swords - Jon X "That old maester says I cannot hang you," Slynt declared. "He has written Cotter Pyke, and even had the bloody gall to show me the letter. He says you are no turncloak." "Aemon's lived too long, my lord," Ser Alliser assured him. "His wits have gone dark as his eyes. Aemon wrote ( ravens flapping) Pyke, the commander at EW that Slynt is trying to hang Jon Snow???? Iffin's you can explain to me where Slynt got his authority --- how it is that Slynt could waltz into CB and place Jon Snow under arrest it would be helpful. In this story, giving what is transpiring, yes, when Jon Snow was elected LC (with the wheeling and dealing of Aemon and Sam) LC Snow was within the limits to kill Slynt.

    R+L=J vs N+A=J (GRRM looses either way)

    Ummmm, I dunna know. I was right pissed/angry/mad first time through that the wild goose chase -- A, W or the fisherman's daughter was Eddard's baby momma. I just do not like how martin wrote it. I accept R& L.

    Me, I had to google and ended up here. I didn't much appreciate martin's ambiguity and misdirection.

    I have a poster that keeps showing up in the heartie comment @purrl1 When I click the name, purrl, is pretty much blank. Normally I wouldn't give a shite. Except I have noticed there are long time posters who post on a regular basis and it appears that said posters haven't been active since 2015, 2016, etc. My questions are: Why do I need to hide? and How do I hide?

    What if the Others didn't wake up?

    I would get a bit more realistic BUT I'm gonna take a softer approach. Yeah, i know what kind of thread this is --- what if martin didn't write what he wrote. Weeeeeel now, <sarcasm on> since martin's ASOIAF fans are so bored let me make up a bunch of shite so me and my fellow humans can talk trash together <sarcasm off>. Speculation about ideas, situations, and points of view that are actually written is vastly different than making up scenarios that aren't actually written in the saga. Some of the make believe scenarios lead me to think that some individuals need to visit a therapist. What if this, what if that--- although I gotta say --- no new material. That is not entirely correct --- F & B v. 1 is being released Oct/Nov. Supposedly it is F & B v. 2 that sheds light on the actual ASOIAF story. BUT that can't be published because it hasn't been written yet. In this sites heyday there were posters who knew these books inside and out. Until those posters come back unfortunately you are stuck with people like me who on occasion find a long winded way to say balderdash to the what if. The hard core ASOIAF fans will come back if/when martin releases WoW. Right now those hard core fans merely let us flounder around with our BS. People keep making up their stuff and people like me occasionally flap my trap. 2019, will be in my opinion a rather interesting year. I mean, the you know what is going to do you know what and maybe if I wish upon a star martin will do you know what.

    My best guess is that it has taken to long between books. LL's and lemon trees are at the bottom of my list of things I want to know about. Martin's so called tricksy twists and turns are not paying off. Ambiguity for the sake of ambiguity equals frustration. Then I settle down, and hopefully WoW will shed light on DwD. Frankly, I have no idea where martin is going. I think that martin does not know where he is going with this story. Most of my awe factor of his mystical, magical fictional world has evaporated.

    "Jaime Lannister sends his regards"

    Ummmmmm, I'm not understanding why you are explaining something to me that I already know. I agreed with another poster and I typed: Agree. Jaime at this point in time does not know. He may have surmised that there was some communication going on betwixt Tywin & Roose. The reason I agreed with the other poster is because the other poster typed: No, Jaime absolutely did not know about anything regarding the RW and Daddy Dearest's machinations.

    Mormont wound not antagonize the Lord of WF. I agree. Yes, Mormont sucks up to Tyrion. The Warden of the North is not beholding to send anything to the Wall.

    If you were Mormont is not the criteria for martin's saga.

    Somewhat true. Five books. Starting with book one can you remind me why?

    Way outta my educational expertise. Sooooo, I'm gonna say the heat generated by the decaying material will allow some wiggle room heat for the creatures. Seriously, Jon, I don't know where martin is going to take the story. The Neck may not freeze. I still do not know if the cold brings the Others or the Others bring the cold. The Wall must collapse for the Others to advance. Unless they go around the Wall -- I have in the past played with the idea water freezes and the Others do a polar bear crawl. The Others appear (can be seen) as evening bleeds into night. That is when they are active. That implies to me the long night must happen. How long is the long night, I dunna know. Thanks for the chat.

    Me too. Hell if martin ever reveals the evasive and illusive Howland and what happened to Mormont & Glover I will be happy.

    Yes, I agree, there is more. First I take into consideration that 16/17 year old Jon Snow did not actively seek to become Mormont's (killed by NW men) replacement as LC of the NW. Aemon Targ and Sam finagled it. Can someone remind me why Tyrion sent Slynt to the Wall? AND will someone suggest how Mormont's raven happened to be in the pot? Other than martin wrote it that way.
