    What was the plan if House Targaryen died out?

    Without the Targs and the dragons I'd imagine the kingdoms would resplinter into the various regimes they were before the conquest.

    Wow, I never noticed that. Vol. 18

    Marchers are known as some of the best archers in Westeros. Still I thought Marsh was a name that would belong to a Northern House in the Neck.
  3. Agreed we could have certainly gleaned something interesting from them.

    Harras "The Knight" Harlaw

    Doran's shameless manipulation of Arianne

    Doran is in cahoots with Marwyn via Oberyn's daughter via Alleras aka Sarella. Marwyn happens to have a lit glass candle that can send dreams and see things far away. Certainly a useful ally. I don't think the Bloody Mummers are Oberyn's sellswords. I think the Storm Crows are. However Oberyn and Qyburn have too many similar interests for it to be a coincidence.

    Great Houses - Valyrian Steel Sword Names?

    Greyjoy had a Valyrian Steel sword, Nightfall. Somehow it has ended up in the hands of House Harlaw, maybe something to do with the intermarriages with the House. Martell: Sunspear is a bit too on the nose as a name although a Spear might be preferred to a sword, not to mention cheaper. I would call it Unbroken. Baratheon: Stormbreaker would be a badass name for a badass sword. Tyrell: Silverthorn Tully: Insert some kind of Fish pun here. Arryn: Talon

    Who is Haldon Halfmaester?

    Lewyn is only 44 by your estimation. Not canonically. Also I think the Elder Brother is actually Jonothor Darry not Lewyn Martell.

    Who is Haldon Halfmaester?

    I don't believe we ever learn the identities of the other 4 in the stories. Surprisingly not a lot of discussion on them as far as I can recall. I had Marwyn pegged as the secret lovechild of Lewyn Martell and Olenna Redwynne. Some things hint towards it but its rather crackpot all things considered.

    The Stark sucession crisis and Arya the unlikely

    Interesting notion but I doubt it. She will be a Queen but during her second life as Nymeria.

    Is Littlefinger Getting Bankrolled?

    Considering there are a number of years basically after the dual with Brandon Stark till the time Lysa gets him a job at Gulltown I have always wondered if he spent any time in Braavos. I have suspected he might have gotten some training from the Iron Bank if not working for them in some manner. I don't think where the money comes from is important is the skill set that he has obviously acquired from somewhere. None of the Tully's he was raised with seem to be great with money and his own father was a lowly landed knight again making him an unlikely source of these skills. As others have stated Baelish had plenty of time to acquire wealth through his brothels and trade deals and probably illegal deals but where did he gain the knowledge? Maybe Baelish keep had a really good Maester but I doubt it. Maybe he spent a few years in the Citadel but we never hear about that.
  11. While I am not sure Tyrion and Sansa will end up together, depending on who among the Starks and Lannisters are left I'd say there is a good chance of peace.

    Cat would inherit it, or maybe one of her sons seems the most likely source of action.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    The reasons others listed above but mostly they were probably under contract to one of the free cities at the time.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Littlefinger, Doran is playing a longer game than most people think IMO. I think the whole Dornish POV's is one big smokescreen. 1) Arys Oakheart is an outside and knows shit about Dorne 2) Arianne is a gossipy socialite that can't be trusted with high treason 3) Areo Hotah, the video camera that rides All our POV's have no idea what is going on.

    Possible but the name doesn't sound Lyseni to me.

    Favorite Bannermen by region and why

    Its house Celtigar that has the axe not Velaryon.

    Favorite Bannermen by region and why

    North: Bolton, 2nd most powerful and somehow managed to survive to the times of the books. "Our Blades are Sharp" is a great house words. Also Roose is a great character, even if Bolt-On isn't true. Riverlands: Blackwood and not only because I really dislike House Bracken. Sweet raven feather cloak, incredible history, marries into a lot of important families. Vale: Royce, an excellent badass family. Mysterious bronze armor, awesome family members, even had a Valyrian steel sword Lamentation but lost it during the Dance. Iron Islands: Harlaw, largest and richest family. Cool nicknames Reader, Knight. Rodrick is the only one with the balls to talk shit to Euron. Harras the Knight has one of the greatest offscreen moments of the series in the taking of the Shield Islands. Crownlands: Velaryon, the Old, the True, the Brave. Excellent history, Valyrian exiles, the naval powah of the Targaryen's for centuries. Westerlands: Crakehall, and not just because all their women are sluts (Walder Frey's words not mine). Boars are cool and they are a house of big strong warriors and seem to be lots of fun. Stormlands: Caron, old Marcher house. Castle is called Nightsong, awesome name and history. A family of warriors and singers. Rolland the Bastard of Nightsong, is a strong supporter of Stannis and what a nickname. Reach: Hightower, old and powerful. Could be mages and manipulators of the highest order. So much mystery and what is Leyton doing at the top of that tower? Dorne: Dayne, because SotM and all the other mystery.

    No direct proof. None of our POV have checked for us.

    Very nice catch. Indeed puts the scales back in her favor.

    References and Homages

    Glad to see other fans of Dune. Faceless Men are so close to Facedancers it hurts. I wonder if Weirwood paste or Shade of the Evening has an properties of spice. Other than seemingly granting or improving ones powers.
