    What to ask GRRM?

    Ask if Ollo Lophand, Roro Uhorys and Pretty Pia are relatives. See the reaction. Seriously, I'm not kidding.
  2. We have different motivations for suicide. Sacrificing themselves to achieve some goal - Beric, Qhorin, old men hunting. Escaping worse fate - slaves in Valyrian mines, House of Black and White, Cersei with Illyn Paine during the battle... Madness - Aerion drinking wildfire. No way out situation - Arys Oakheart. Suicide that is actually no suicide - Jahaera. And then there is guilt. Helaena Targaryen, who has to choose which of her children would be killed. Remember Sophie's Choice? What if Ashara has to choose, too?

    Dissecting Names

    Now when you mentioned Durran, every time I hear Argella Durrandon, I think of the hardened clay in Minecraft. I just can't help myself. The name just evokes it. I have been suffering with this crossover for a while. "The wolves can be only tamed with bones." There is this purple-eyed dragon. Wolves. Squids. Rose. Ocelot. Bat. Spider. Zombies. There is Alium. The last update had Trident and Turtles, not to mention Cod, Parrot or Seaweed. Next time I expect deer, comet and dwarf.

    Dissecting Names

    Yes, him too. There is also another Ossifer. Ossifer Lipps in Alayne sample chapter. Now, Ossifer Plumm died while having sex with his wife, Elaena Targaryen, one of the maidens from the Maidenvault. The second Ossifer, Lipps, was flirting with Myranda Royce. Myranda's husband died while having sex with her. Myranda's sigil looks like a moon in prison. Moon, a symbol of woman. Moon in a prison, maiden in a tower. A husband having sex with his bride and dying. Elaena and Alayne. Suspiciously similar occurrences, don't you think? ETA: Royce is an old name derived from the word rose, as someone said before.

    Dissecting Names

    A couple of things I found interesting. Delena cancerides - crab spider. Genus Alister - king parrot. nanus - Latin word for a dwarf. Ossifer means Bonebringer.
  6. Gregor knighted by Rhaegar points imo at Rhaegar and Tywin being allies. As Tywin said, there is a tool for every task and a task for every tool. Rhaegar allied himself with Tywin and Tywin asked him to create a tool for certain task. Rhaegar just did as he was asked. The thing is, what was the task.
