  1. wow, so far i agree with everyone in front of me if i had to pick only 1 person though, it would be Arya - she's a fighter
  2. Will doesn't know about his Green skill then? & is that what you are proposing? if so i hadn't thought on that. & i'm not too sure of the dead mother direwolf being related to the event. the howling wolf could be just 'normal' wolves on their business too, the description being added for chill effect. the two events being related ... imho i don't think so but who knows what with the limited information we have
  3. wow, ten already ... time flies when you're having fun! i am (again) going to re-read ALL THE BOOKS
  4. ahoy! my question is off-topic (maybe) @LynnS i saw your reply in Megorova's posting about the 'corn theory' ... is it possible that you (or one of you all 'in the know') can type a bit about it for me/all us that are unlearned in this? if you can type it here or somewhere else please let me know
  5. thanks for posting all your work Megorova; i'm going to start a re-read
  6. M! thanks for thinking the thoughts that i never would have thought ... very interesting ideas on the potential relationships/connections & such. no i didn't see any of those coming ! on to part 10 for me
  7. great explanation on this part of your analysis M, thanks! i have no comments to you yet; i am just keeping on reading on
  8. thanks M ... please post the next one of your series now, i need something to read
  9. all the chapters in the books are far superior to anything depicted the fake lame TV show ... imho my favorite chapter so far is in WoW - the Forsaken in the released material i do not have a clear favorite. almost every chapter of DwD is my favorite - the prologue with Varaymar & the insight into warging that we get, so interestingly scary! all the other freaky stuff in the Victarion chapter. love it! i can't really pick, the story just keeps getting better & better & better
  10. hmmm, let's think on that scenario, as ugly as it is .. i just thought about it for a while. i realized that what would Gared know other than Royce & Will were walking toward a 'Wilding camp' ? he was with the horses after all - he didn't know what went on with the encounter with the Others. if Royce, as a reanimated wight or whatever, went wandering off as the reanimated wights seem to do, then maybe only Will's strangled body remained at the bloody scene. who knows what Gared would have thought had happened (maybe he thought Royce snapped & murdered his Black Brother OR that the Wildings were responsible for the mayhem) & no wonder that Ned's words didn't 'reach' him during the questioning or whatever it was. another thing i wonder about is why not return the 'wayward' Black Brother to the Watch for questioning? or wait for some representative of the Wall to arrive to the questioning? seems like a wasted opportunity for a exit interview at the least. it would be good to know where they caught/found Gared to try & determine where he could have crossed the Wall.
  11. Gared had the horses so his travelling away from the scene of the crime wasn't too difficult as compared to only walking. makes me often wonder why he wasn't all caught by the Others, i mean Will & Royce were only walking distance away from where Gared would have been keeping the horses.
  12. i know @The_Watcher_On_The_Walls ... why didn't he ? i'm sure someone would have believed him/the story he would have told. this is what i think. it would have been great intel for the Watch to know of what happened. i don't have any links to some of the more thoughtful discussions that have been had on this topic but take a search for keywords in the main forum if you like; in all my readings of postings on this forum there isn't a definitive reason that i've read. general consensus is that he went "craven" got a good idea though? drop your book-related theory into the main forum for discussion people are hungry for new ideas
  13. hey - cheer up ... don't feel pessimistic & presumptive ! i will continue to reread & wait to know what REALLY happens in the story. join me !
  14. i just love the love that happens here every once in a while REJOICE! & it is a neat idea about what the Wildings people might consider about Jon. thanks!
  15. no, i understand what you are putting forward - it's just that not everyone knows of the baby switch and the two children are now going to be treated differently. i find it extremely interesting.
  16. hmmm, interesting ideas MS, thanks for the posting! are the Crastors related to Targaryens ... i don't know... i just don't know. what strikes me is most with your theory is that our "Monster" is now being (directly/indirectly) called "Aemon Battleborn or Aemon Steelsong" due to his circumstances. is that a weird coincidence if he is indeed a Targaryen ancestor? but if he is not a Targaryen - Monster is being "named" when he should not be "named" (per the Wilding People's tradition of not naming infants until their proper "nameday"). the main point of that is: what affect will this naming have upon "Monster" if he is a not a "normal" Wilding Prince? is he doomed to bad luck? (you know, that quote (to Jon) from Gilly about naming her baby before two years old) also to note the other coincidence that "Monster", too, was born during battle; his inadvertent name is just as applicable as Dalla's son's. also also - Gilly is calling the Wilding Prince by the name of "Aemon Bb/Ss" - what does this tell us? wouldn't she not name him if he of the Wilding People? do the 'royals' get some sort of 'don't name him before he's off the breast' naming rule pass? i love the parallels that these two young'uns have going on. they are my favorite new characters. so many questions: will these two boys will be known by the same names in the future? maybe like a Aegon/fAegon kind of confusion? i don't know, i'm just putting it out here, thanks for the post MS. maybe the more experienced symbologists of this board can help analyze this better than me with my questions. maybe they already have! @Seams, @sweetsunray have you each had some thoughts about this before? how about your opinion @Megorova - is it possible that there could be a forgotten Targaryen ancestor that turned into the Crastor family?
  17. i like your noticing skills @Anthony Appleyard - i'm re-reading all the Daenarys chapters now & she has mention of the similarities in the Dothraki gods to the aspects of the Seven ... of course I'm not able to find any quotes at this time. it was along the lines of: 'she prayed to the Smith & Dothraki horse lord for bravery'. maybe i'll be able to find it. it wasn't the only reference. what do you think it means though? are the aspects of the Seven a cumulation of all other 'religions' of Planetos or is it a sort of career training/assessment tool that got too large and out of control?
  18. this observation is another reason why R & L never ever even happened. neither of them cheated. yes, i have no proof.
  19. oh & don't forget my favorite hero: Coldhands ... how would you classify him ?
  20. ARRR! Lady Stoneheart & Beric Dondarrion my friend the levels of death - i love this topic ! edited to add: DOH, i missed your mention in the "fire wights" section, my apologies .... got so exited !
  21. ARR - i have often wondered about the things about "the black" in general. the COMMANDER. it seems he wears a raven. other than that nothing more than knowledge distinguishes him. good question! that leads me to think more on the "uniform" of the Night's Watch. like the OP poses - what about the differences in wearing "the black" / finery: yeah. in my thinking on it - it's like someone getting kitted out for school or going to camp or playing intramural sports ... although; in proper sports & teams, everyone wears the same thing so they are all the "same". TEAM! why isn't it so that everyone in the Night's Watch gets as good as / the same quality of essentials ( personal or ppe like ) as everyone else in the NW? in a general sense simplicity seems the basic/base reason - everyone wears black because all colours can be dyed such that they turn black. & in thinking on that, as the excellent symboligist of our board can expand on better than i, black is either the absence of colour or the totality of all colours. that is a reason why i think that the "black" is meant to either contrast the 'seven' with their rainbow associations OR to complement them. join me in going down my tin-foil lined rabbit hole - maybe the black aligns with the rainbow to thwart the others in the grand scheme of things? or is the rainbow in a constant fight against the black for some reason? hmmm. i don't know, it's late, i like the thoughts this thread brought me thanks @Noble
  22. i read right by the Rainbow Pool & didn't even ever think on it ... what an excellent explainer you have posted for us to ponder upon Walda! my first thought was ' a pool?' and then i thought of the pool in Winterfell's Godswood. then i thought of the pool in the House of Black & White. could it be that there is a common thing for temples to have a water feature? some sort of same reverence to the Drowned God? hmmmmmm - the symbolling experts of our board need to weigh in on this; looking forward to the analysis! added: to me the head in the pool was just as you supposed - to worry Ned; to make him think that there was this elevated level of depravity going on. mind games.
  23. Wow, Lynn, I didn't make any of those connections and dang, that Joramund name sure does seem to fit with Mormont names. My working hypothesis is the Longclaw is actually Ancestral Ice and that the Starks gave it to House Mormont to safekeep from future evil Starks accessing it. I do think there is some wicked power we don't yet understand in this NOT VS sword. It's just an idea fueled by much fire in this topic. This is an interesting avenue for research. Thank you for the tip. I will follow up to see if I can connect anything. here's my $0.02 & disclaimer - i think i've read this entire thread & if someone noted what i am going on about, i will feel really dumb because i obviously missed something. it's been a few days. so if so, let me know the word "Longclaw" suddenly dinged to me in an association similar to "wooden tooth" & "bone tooth" - these were named as the human weapons in the description by Varamyr when he is warging along in his wolves; in the most excellent prologue of DwD. the connection i'm trying to make is that the word combinations of "wooden tooth", "hardskins", "long grey claws" "bone tooth" is totally similar to "Longclaw". to me this seems to be a potential cotf / 'old gods' type of word combination & that leads me to thinking that indeed, there could be way more history & importance in Longclaw.
