  1. OP claims that this wouldn't have been offensive at the time that George was planting his seeds, but that now a shift in the political climate (and the extremist groups that change brought about) would make him a target. I can only assume he's referring to the Social Justice Warmongers, as I can't see George caring about offending Antifa, the alt-right (i.e ethnonationalists) and such groups. Is Azor Ahai related to gender, relations between men and women (that's my guess - look to Nissa Nissa being stabbed through the heart), globalism, Islamism, illegal immigration (walls and wildlings?), gun control and shootings, or some other hot button issue of today? Perhaps OP thinks this bombshell is even what's stopping George from finishing the story. Or, OP, is this revelation something that you think won't be figured out with the completion of the story, and is more of a bonus that only book nerds would gleam either way? I hope this group votes to allow the theory to be posted. I really can't see any viable reason for it not to be. George can defend himself from the extemists.

    Could Penny be Tyrion's daughter?

    Oh, no stupidity was observed, so need to feel stupid And thank you for the welcome and the compliment. Means a lot coming from you (I was pretty sick over the new year period and your Brienne In Pennytree topic gave me hours of thoughtful sick-bed reading.). As for the topic at hand, it does seem pretty open and shut that Penny isn't Tyrion's, but I like the idea of him having a bastard out there that he eventually meets and has to take care of (say, if he finds where whores go, finds out Tysha died, but her kid is still around).

    Could Penny be Tyrion's daughter?

    Yep, it is Lanna. The extra N is what separates it from a pretty normal 21st century name and a name that could very well be a "bastardization" of the Lannister surname. For precedent in this very series, see Robert's [presumably] final bastard who was named Barra. I definitely lean towards Lanna being Gerion's bastard - or perhaps Tywin's

    Do you think Ned knew Old Nan's true identity?

    For anyone worried about Nan, the Feast for Crows appendix lists her as a captive at the Dreadfort. So at the very least she survived the sack of Winterfell. I could see George RR Martin having her die just from the sheer hardship of the ordeal, as all that crap has to take an enormous toll, but we can hope for retribution.

    [TWoW Spoilers] Aeron I (Balticon)

    EurSei (CerOn?) would be a cool pairing, and I hope it does happen, since I think Cersei will level King's Landing but I don't want her out of the great game just yet. What I'd like to see happen is Cersei is denied trial by combat, admits that Tommen is her incest baby and can't be king, then burns the city, flees with Tommen and joins Euron. This puts her in direct conflict with Tyrion who will be joining Dany, and I'm guessing Euron and Dany will be enemies as well. Euron will eventually be responsible for Tommen's death. And Cersei's JOY will turn to ASHES in her mouth (Greyjoy!) before Euron kills her. He's the younger brother of Balon, after all. Tinfoil or fanfic, but it sounds nice to me! This chapter was amazing.
