    Wow, I never noticed that. Vol. 18

    The Selaesori Qhoran is carrying dragon peppers and a corpse in brine. Didn't the Cinnamon Wid also carry dragon peppers? And they lay Maester Aemon in a barrel of rum to keep him from rotting when he died, so maybe his is the corpse? So could they both be the same ship or could the Selaesori Qhoran be carrying cargo from the Cinnamon Wind? Sorry but I haven't read the chapter where Sam arrives in Oldtown nor the ones aboard the Selaesori Qhoran yet. I am currently reading Tyrion's chapter when he and Jorah get on the ship first

    Small Questions v. 10106

    Which captain of the Golden Company had filed teeth? One of the skulls has filed teeth. Who is this and why did he have filed teeth?
  3. Obviously AFFC is considered the most boring book of them all and, if in any book, the one in which GRRM possibly "dropped the ball" a little bit. But it's also because Storm was SO MAGNIFICENTLY GOOD!!!! Seriously, "A Storm of Swords" is a true masterpiece. It's got everything, so of course AFFC will be a disappointment in comparison. But I do love Cersei's chapters and I think they are among the best in AFFC. The other chapters are much worse. Who cares about Brienne endlessly wandering through the Riverlands without anything special happening or Jon freezing and fretting at the Wall? And the others as well... I get it if you hate Cersei, but I don't think her chapters are boring at all. They were in fact great to me and contained some of the most creative and fascinating lines I've read in ASOIAF, such as her thinking about how she used to eat Robert's seed, "devouring all of his pale sticky princes" or something similar. Magnificent writing, I think.

    The Sweet of the Bittersweet

    I still somehow half subconsciously believe in the theory/thing that the ending will be Jon and Arya both dying and warging into Ghost and Nymeria and then meeting and recognising each other as wolves and having a sweet reunion where they either rule Nymeria's pack together as the alpha couple or just live together the two of them, and also falling in love. I think that this is the ending that GRRM had originally planned or something, or otherwise there was this huge thing or aspect that completely showed that this was going to be the ending, at least from the beginning. But now I can't remember or find where I read it and what it was about. But anyway, that could be a sweet ending.

    Small Questions v. 10106

    Where do Genna Lannister and Emmon Frey live at the start of the series? Do they have their own castle, somewhere in either the Westerlands or the Riverlands, or do they live at Casterly Rock or the Twins, or something else?

    I often think that banal descriptions of food or nature or other small aspects of the book can be metaphors or hidden foreshadowing of things, and for once I found something so elaborate and long that it was worth writing it down: In one of the Jaime chapters in AFFC, when Jaime has just arrived to the siege of Riverrun - maybe Jaime IV or something - Jaime is watching two girls wrestling in the water on the shoulders of two men. "Jaime bet a copper star on the blond girl riding Raff the Sweetling, and lost it when the two of them went down splashing amongst the reeds. Across the river wolves were howling, and the wind was gusting through a stand of willows, making their branches writhe and whisper. Jaime found Ser Ilyn Payne alone outside his tent, honing his greatsword with a whetstone." This is my interpretation of what the text is a metaphor of: The girls represent the Great Houses, sitting on the shoulders of their soldiers in order to win. Jaime bets on the blond girl to win the fight. The blond girl represents House Lannister or maybe even Cersei herself. She is with Raff. Their team loses, just like House Lannister will lose the coming war. (Arya kills Raff in Braavos in the "Mercy" chapter, so Raff will die too). Raff falls first and then the blond woman on top of him, since he is carrying her on his shoulders. So Raff dies at the start of Winds, and Cersei might die at its end, or in ADOS. They fall down "amongst the reeds". This could have something to do with House Reed but I don't necessarily think so. Across the river wolves are howling, which symbolises House Stark winning and prospering - the wolves are probably Nymeria and her pack, of course, making it even clearer that they are of House Stark - and after that the wind is gusting, making the branches of a willow tree writhe and wisper. The wind represents the winter and the Others. First House Stark will win over the Lannisters, and then the Others will come for the Starks. Also, the wind making the branches writhe and whisper could mean that the reemergence of the Others will make the Children of the Forest and the Old Gods move and speak again - in other words, they will once again come into the world of men and make themselves heard, like the trees are whispering. And, finally, Jaime finds Ilyn Payne, who represents death, meaning Jaime will die. And this is after Cersei has already died and House Lannister has lost.

    Small Questions v. 10106

    What does the word "pergent" mean??? In one of Tyrion's chapters, when he's aboard the Shy Maid, he's writing down everything he knows about dragons' mating habits, "on which subject Barth, Munkun and Thomax held markedly pergent views". I googled it and I couldn't find any definition or explanation of it. How is it possible that no online dictionary has this seemingly archaic word and yet GRRM knows it? And what does it mean, and why?

    Small Questions v. 10106

    Is the House of Black and White so small that it only contains two Faceless Men who reside there permanently? Surely there must be a lot of Faceless Men since their organisation is so "grand" and well-known and they have an entire religion and everything. Shouldn't there be at least 20-50, or maybe more than 100 Faceless Men in the world? And surely they can't all constantly be out on missions? And isn't the House of Black and White their only headquarters? But in the "The Blind Little Girl" chapter in ADWD, it says that "Besides her, the House of Black and White was home to two serving men, three acolytes, Umma the cook, and the two priests that she called the waif and the kindly man. Others came and went, sometimes by secret ways, but those were the only ones who lived here". So what's the thing? Why aren't there more priests/faceless men in the House of Black and White?

    Regarding Bran II or III or something - I'm not counting the exact chapters all the time - in Dance: Coldhands calls the Others "White walkers". Isn't that word supposed to only be used by the wildlings? Could this say something about Coldhands' identity, even though he has crow's garb? Also, when Bran wargs Hodor in the attack before they reach the cave of the Three Eyed Raven, he screams "HODOR!", but couldn't Bran make Hodor talk like a normal person when he is inside him if he wanted to?

    Just read something which made me understand that the post I wrote was based on a false assumption in a chapter in Dance. Please delete this

    Fave moment in AFFC?

    Have only read half so far, but: Tywin's funeral (Cersei I) is a magnificent chapter and one of the few which was as good in the show as it was in the books and vice versa. Even better and more grand in the show, actually, which made me happy to read it afterwards in the book (I read it as a sample chapter in my pocket book of Storm first and it was great fun) Alayne Stone - all of the chapters so far are excellently ethereal, and there is a truly beautiful, fair, magic sensation about the Eyrie where I can really feel like I'm there, high up in the Mountains of the Moon with the snow and clouds and clear air (plus obviously the things that happen with Littlefinger and Sansa are super interesting) (Possibly Kingsmoot to a degree, but it wasn't as grand as I had imagined. But of course Euron is still pretty cool and everything) (Arya's arrival in Braavos is relatively cool as well)

    Not necessarily related to the series itself but: "Santa Fe" - "Fanta-sy"

    Percentage Poll on various theories

    1. 25 %. Absolutely not something I normally think of but it would certainly be a twist and possible considering all the other twists that have happened so far 2. 25 %. Maybe but it could also just be some other crow 3. 75 % I almost think this is stated in the books, due to Aerys's paranoia, so yes 4. 50 % Maybe. It would be a bit weird for her not to go there after Quaithe's prophecy and so forth but at the same time she probably doesn't have the time to go there before she goes to Westeros and the series ends... But maybe 5. 0 % Have almost not heard about this theory before and Quaithe could be anyone else too 6. 50 % Maybe. She seems to have an important identity and Ashara fits quite well plus I know it's a well-known theory so I trust the forum speculators on this one as I haven't finished Dance yet 7. 25 % Maybe, it would be a fun twist and could include the thing about Tyrion's knowledge with Casterly Rock's sewer systems if they invade via the Westerlands. But at the same time this would probably mean having to reveal all of the lands on the way there and that is not GRRM's thing so I don't think he'll reveal any new landmasses in the story etc etc 8. 25 % Either Khal Drogo's or Rhaego's soul, or no one's at all 9. 75 % Obviously, since they're warging and Jon probably wargs into Ghost at the time of his stabbing 10. 0 % Lol why would he be?

    Poll: Answer 10 mysteries of asoiaf

    1. Tysha is probably dead or living a commoner's life somewhere in Westeros. Possibly otherwise as a whore in one of the Free Cities - most likely Braavos. The only chance of Tyrion meeting her again is if she's a whore in Essos, but I don't think that's the case. 2. Lyanna Stark 3. Some Meereenese noble, I don't know 4. Lyanna Stark 5. A Blackfyre 6. Big Walder Frey 7. No idea XD 8. A random Night's Watch corpse which is being warged by Bloodraven 9. Don't know 10. Jon Snow or Daenerys Targaryen (or noone at all)

    Really interesting, I think it makes sense. It could be the Old Tongue
