    Heresy 222 vindication

    The nature and quantity of the weirwood hiveminds is one of my main and oldest doubts. Do we get only one hivemind or we are going to see multiple clusters and factions?. The idea of the Stark pack using the weirnet as the equivalent of a virtual private network is hinted in the books when TreeBran awakes Jon and when the howling wolf awakes Arya in Harrenhal. This seems to be independent from whatever parts of the Hivemind is available to greenseers like Bloodraven.

    I got the Kindle version, so no page numbers. Check 6 or 7 pages into the A son for a son chapter (part of the Dying of the Dragons section)

    F&B provides an additional bit of information about the dragon's reactions in the North. When Alysanne visited Winterfell during a summer, her dragon had no problem during their stay. When Jacaerys went with Vermax seeking Cregan's assistance during an Autumn the dragon was ill tempered: So whatever affected Silverwing at the Wall may have been active in Winterfell when the cold winds disturbed Vermax

    Talking about Faith of the Seven. From Tyrion get two passages of The seven pointed star that seem to be part of the Andal creation myth. This is the first one The girl provided by the Maid matches the description of Tyene Sand whose eyes are also deep blue pools and is described as otherworldy Somehow related: Tyrion takes the name Hugor Hill when he is aboard the Shy Maid

  6. The Arbor has already fallen to Euron. Three Towers ("towers by the sea"?) and Old Town are probably next. There are not many cities in Westeros and only a few big towns.
  7. Civilizations can fall if all major population centres are destroyed. It can take 100s of year for new civilizations to rise again. We can see this during the Bronze Age Collapse when most cities between Greece and Anatolia were destroyed and abandoned. Egypt and Mesapotamia were also affected but some cities survived.
  8. We have discussed before with Feather Crystal about the process of Otherisation of the enemy; the evil traits and deeds being assigned to the enemy and erased from your own faction. The legendary NK was Stark or a Bolton or a Flint or...could he be an amalgamation of evil deeds from multiple northern kingdoms? Let's forget what we did and blame the Others. Dany and several of the main characters have visions/prophecies/foreshadowing that hint about their dark future: Arya, Jon, Bran, Euron and maybe Cersei. They are also dabbling in darks arts. I think that there is a chance that we are witnessing the actions of the people that will become the legendary Others in the tales of the survivors of the new Long Night.
  9. Ignoring the details, there are some big strokes from the show that I expect to see in the books: -the WW are a distraction/mirage and the main conflict is between humans (and the fire faction is not a saviour) -humans do most of the killing (plus the effects of Winter but this is missing in the show) -the pack survives and greenseer powers make kings again -the Iron Throne is gone (but I expect much wider destruction, not just KL) A big part that I think was missing is the famine and resource wars caused by Winter
  10. For both book and show I would bet on Arya killing Dany maybe using Missandei's face. In the books Dany has a thing for protecting young girls, so getting close this way can work. In the show I am going with Jon killing Arya (without realising it was her); he made an oath and will keep it like an idiot till the end. Sansa and Bran will stay in The North while the south descends in further chaos.
  11. I have mentioned before the references to Jon dancing with Alys again, him spotting snowflakes dancing near the Wall and Alys being Winter's lady with an icy crown. Mix with Varamyr dancing with Thistle, I am betting on that move for Jon's second life as a mini hivemind.
  12. Fair enough. I will still file this under my Dark Ned crackpot together with his revenge killing spree and shadowbinding of his companions
  13. It is sprinkled all over the main episode discussion thread and the rant and rave threads. Now there is also a dedicated thread to look at Dany's psychology:
  14. Way off topic...I am loving the "Are we the baddies?" moment going on in the show forums
  15. The tale around the ToJ was a low point for Ned's honour, so I would not look at what he would approve but at what were his practical options to keep the girl alive without leaving traces that would endager her and his family. Courtesans can have a comfortable life and can rise in the social ladder. He was capable of sending Jon to The Wall were comfort is non-existent and there are only traces of honour left.
