    Purple Wedding, Finally Solved.

    the more i think on this the more i like the double poison proposal - it sure is a fun idea! one thing - i have not read about the DMB/Dornish Master Plan - could someone summarize that in a elevator pitch; what makes it different from what Pedro Luiz has proposed? or does it matter? i have never trusted Oberyn & do not doubt that he was up to something there.

    Purple Wedding, Finally Solved.

    great points, thanks for posting this, i'll be re-reading the event POVs and will keep these ideas in mind.

    How do you expect Euron to die? (If he does)

    Arya will kill him - LOL - someone will hire the assassin group to get rid of him and Euron will be her assignment. see what i did there with the letters ? i didn't even know i did that, it fills me with joy.
  4. love the analysis GRRM included the chapter the visual "... streams of milk flowing ..." so it seems to me that Daenerys potentially offered breast milk to the fire - was that considered? & i'm not just typing that to be funny. quite serious, i want to explore all options because being "milk brothers" seems to be some sort of connection in other character's storylines. so please consider this. i think i've read through all the postings, i didn't see anyone refuting the comet or the sacrifice of the horse, nor the breast milk... (just going to quickly review now) and as such, i have a couple suggestions to the recipe: (edited to add - oh yes, i read about GRRM not having a recipe for magic, but that doesn't mean that there isn't certain things that are required. we know Mel needs ingredients to do her stuff et all) Dragon Hatching Recipe 1. Get pregnant - check 2. Add/Shed blood of horrible brother - check - add/shed blood of one horse (eating of the heart) 3. Add/Shed blood of unborn - check 4. Sacrifice cruel brother - check 5. Add/Shed your own blood? - check 6. Sacrifice unborn - check 7. Sacrifice husband - sacrifice one horse - wait until a (red) comet is visible in the sky 8. Light great fire (preperation of the pyre - be sure to line the wood up east / west & the third level north to south, from ice to fire) 9. Birthing Song (the birthing song that DIES - how ironic!) 10. Sacrifice self / or offer up some breast milk What do you all think ? valid?
  5. hello! nice thread - i didn't read all the previous locked thread so this is new for me - thanks! not to hijack anyone's idea(s) but please - don't forget to consider the timing of the comet sighting & the timing on the lighting of the funeral fire was important - Jhogo spied it first - I do believe this has something to do with the "magic" of the hatching, a least a part of the recipe.

    Table Setting - The Red Comet

    hmmmm , so much to think on! thanks CF !! the comet 'appeared' in the middle of 298 (right?) for any sort of reference, Aegon was born 281 or 282 (per WIKI) i am deducting the comet's recurrence as being 'regular', this could be an event for every 17/18 or so years ... if indeed it were the same comet. IF. so stating that IF the comet appears every approximate 18 years about then there could be some corresponding events of a previous time that might be fun to think about. i'm going to make a chart of this ... sounds fun! & i can't help but wonder what Tyrion's thoughts on the comet would be. we don't hear anyone's ideas on what the disappearance/unappearance of the comet. what do the characters think about the comet being not seen anymore? what did they wonder about that? wow even more questions!

    Skinchanging bonds

    like the discussion going on ! i would quote everyone but Lollygag is the closest to me as i reply ... ... and now, as i type, KBF replies in front of me with stuff i like too ! LAST Greenseer could be a title as in something like the "LAST Greenseer". could be that this is the blockchain keeper of sorts, a vault type of person on the weirwood memory chain. (symbolically, a vault could tie in with the CRYPTS at Winterfell or any barrow or boneyard) OR the LAST Greenseer that was the last of them Greenseers that "saw" all the events that are being remembered or shared or whatnot. OR the LAST Greenseer because maybe there is a Blackseer &/or Redseer and they are waiting on their third? (maybe i have too much tinfoil with all these the holiday leftovers ...)
  8. thanks for typing that out Lollygag & i like your ideas. (i've been saving my 'Cersei' reread for a while as i really do enjoy her character (she has a similar sense of humour like Jaime &Tyrion) i may have to move her chapters up on my list) i like the idea of the blood being needed for a curse ... much like Mel's leech thing in a way. i'm trying to think of any other blood takings/offerings in the text that are unlike entrails on a heart tree but at this time, i can not. more things to think about ! HA! omg - i totally did not fully process that fact - weirds me out now that i do reflect on it!

    Skinchanging bonds

    hmmm interesting. it could be that the other men were less strong than Jon or that Jon was lucky to pick the spear that was easier to pull out or even that he had a big adrenalin boost. i'm trying to think of other situations where any of the wargs/skinchanger types exhibited "feats of strength" but i can not. doesn't mean it didn't, doesn't or can't happen. (right now i'm thinking specifically of Varamyr - when he was injured & really couldn't do anything) in my opinion all the warging/skin changing resultant abilities/information is mental - through the senses or dreams. i'll be looking for anything similar as i go through my re-readings. thanks Lady Anna!

    How much did Ned care about Lyanna?

    "shit she created" what do you mean frenin? i create shit every day and no one really cares.
  11. hi Fictionisn'tReal - i do know this as i have read the books, yes, she doesn't kill them all personally. consider this: just being on her list almost certainly means you will die, probably with pain; so in a way, she has actually killed everyone on her list just by putting them on her list plus - she isn't going to be away from Westeros forever; she will return once she is able & she will find nymeria, destroy all her enemies & all will be well. but to stay on topic - to me it seems WRONG - how would Maggy "know" about Robert's children? she sucked on Cersei's blood not Robert's. plus, this was well before Robert being king. way way before Cersei even knew of Robert. yeah yeah, prophecy - it's a prediction of the future. sure. right. let's look at the tarot cards. read your horoscope. it just seems to me that a person with the ability to 'see' the future would only be able to deal with the physical information given, Cersei had no knowledge of Robert at that point in her life. she never knew of him or that he was the king she would marry ... to me it seems to be that Maggy mind fucked her. and why not? some little elite little shit kid waking you up and demanding to have her fortune told, AND threatening you? were i Maggy, i would tell all the wicked evil truth i would be able to know with horrible lies. and why not? Maggy didn't even get any coins from those spoiled rich kids for their "fortunes".
  12. TyrionI991, i realize you are hurting. not only are you a hater, but you also believe in R+L=J. i am so sad for you. when you need help, please seek it out. people might be there for you. edit - ok, i am not sad for you. i really don't care.

    How much did Ned care about Lyanna?

    i must have missed this part in my re-read - i really don't remember reading this ... please - do you have a quote to support this ?
  14. Yaya

    Martin confirms Dany's coin lands good.

    HA ! this only means that the HBO script is not what the REAL story is. HA ! triple HA!
  15. personally, i think it will be Arya that will end /cause effects to end Cersei's life ... as Arya is, slowly but surely, successfully getting her 'death wish' list completed & also she is a younger sibling so that would fit the ambiguous pronouns of the Vayrian language.

    Table Setting - Jamie's First Dream

    CF - you are correct, I am the mixer upper of the dreams. i'm re-reading through now. thanks!

    Table Setting - Jamie's First Dream

    great thread CF & all contributors - took me a bit to catch up! my thought on the Rhaegar color thing - when I thought on that part of Jaime's dream - all i could think of was Melisandre's ruby. Most all the descriptions of Melisandre and her ruby are (usually) - either something about darkness, a adjective/adverb of the red of the ruby, and with something light/white and without getting x-rated, it is always described as 'pulsing', 'shimmering'. 'glowing' etc ... maybe there is a Rhaegar and Rholler connection of sort? i can't begin to extrapolate more other than offer the observation that Lannisters use ruby gems in their house emblems and so do the Targaryens - we know Rhaegar had rubies on his battle armor for example. in general regards to Jaime's first dream - he hasn't lost his hand in this dream. he asks for a sword without thinking about how will he ever use it and he picks the sword without even thinking of it and in the description of his actions in the dream, it doesn't seem that he is impaired (or worried about missing his sword hand) in any way. either his fresh injury doesn't/didn't affect his subconscious or this means something else or doesn't mean anything at all. we really don't know much about Casterly Rock do we? ... i really like the grey-scale connection that has been made above (good job Lollygag, totally interesting), that could be a true connection, i think those caverns and such of The Rock have yet to be fully discovered.

    The Stannis Plan and why he wrote the Pink Letter 2.0

    hi, i'm reading through the thread catching up ... and i just thought of this (not sidelining the topic, but this could be supporting 'evidence') and did anyone put any thought cycles into: how would Roose or Ramsay even know who Mance was? why would anyone really even think that the Mance would be at Winterfell? who in the castle could even know who Mance is? it is my conjecture that no one knew Mance's face ... it's not like 'wanted' posters were strung up along the forests for all to see. true it could be that Squirrel and the rest of the women were 'sharply' questioned or skinned for the truth, but i think not - it is my opinion they all would die first before admitting any truths of who they really were or their 'mission'. to me this totally adds more 'proof' to the letter being of Stannis's plan. btw 3EM - great analysis of the letter - occam's razor like logic going on.

    The untold truth of Robert Strong.

    thanks T-E.M for this posting - your research and analysis on the magic aspects is great, i'll definitely be thinking on this. & also: i sure do like the idea that the skull that went to dorne is old bob baratheon - LOL !

    Eddard reread

    Hello, all you reading this thread ... i am re-re-reading the series again and I'm quoting from Eddard1: (setting the scene: the King & his crew are arriving at Winterfell) "Ned knew many of the riders. There came Ser Jaime Lannister with hair as bright as beaten gold, and there Sandor Clegane with his terrible burned face. The tall boy beside him could only be the crown prince, and that stunted little man behind them was surely the Imp, Tyrion Lannister." ... WAS SURELY the Imp .. which leads me to think that he never met the "Imp" before. Because, I would think that once meeting Tyrion that one would remember him. Hence the preface of "was surely" ... because if not, then what? What do you all think? am I jumping to conclusions? We have never heard/read a reference nor remembrance of Eddard to the wedding of Cersei & Robert. Wouldn't we if it were joyful? I put to you all that Eddard had never met Tyrion before this occasion of the Winterfell visit AND that Eddard was not at the wedding of Cersei and Robert. Tyrion would have most definitely been at Cersei's wedding. If Eddard never met Tyrion before then he wasn't at the wedding. What does this mean if so? The "wrothness" about Lyanna's death was still too fresh for Ned to think Robert should wed and thus a boycott of sorts? I don't know what to think. I'm just on a re-read and am interested if anyone else has an opinion on this or any ideas in that regard. Thanks for reading!

    Creepiest part

    hmmm, @#1dolFAN i can't exactly find where i got the reading of that chapter from, it was released somewhere/sometime ago ... this is where my link takes me: "https://warsandpoliticsoficeandfire.wordpress.com/2016/07/12/the-ulimate-winds-of-winter-resource/" i am sure someone on this board might have an exact link to the sample chapter ... The chapter is POV from the Damphair and it details some of what goes on after the last time we read about him ... very very creepy and horrifying!

    Creepiest part

    Is it time for re-read?

    i also enjoyed the time lapse/frames with each individual pov - it gives a good 'feeling' of the time between events/interactions with other characters. if you are able to, print a chapter out on 8x5 to make notes or whatnot in the margins
