    They could have taught the NW how to "kill" WW as part of the creation of the black legend that has marked the end of the world of men for a few thousand years. Men forget quickly so they created The Wall to mark the frontier and the human NW as the forever enemy of the boogeymen. A few encounters every now and then would be needed to keep the legend alive and most men south of The Wall.

    I have two possible explanations for the partial genocide. One option is that their plan was a culling and they preserved some bloodlines historically linked to the Pact The second one is that they didn't have total control of the white cold and decided to protect friendly bloodlines; either they didn't create the white cold or it was an out of control weapon. The WW would be just protectors capable of operating during the long night.

    Tormund paying Jon's "blood price" in children reinforce the idea that child sacrifice is linked to the creation of The Wall. Not unexpected given the link between powerful magic and blood magic. For the WWs, I am more inclined to the idea of them being created from old First Men; some of those old people said to "go hunting" might have ended as white walkers. The imagery of an old man walking alone of the white snow would match a "white walker". I also link this to Theon that is described as an old man by Asha and as a ghost (by himself). Something like recycling old people with magical bloodlines into WW and dead people into wights. "ice preserves" after all.

    Yes, in the case of Daemon it is particulary interesting that trusting the interpretation of one prophecy (Duncan becoming a KG) led him to expose too much information maybe changing the fate of the second prophecy; the dragon hatching maybe switching from Daemon to Aegon.

    Poll: Did Jojen Die Off-Page in DANCE?

    Ned's ghost might actually be home already. From the same chapter:

    GRRM gave us another way to "go home" when Rickon waits for Ned in the crypts:

    I came across these quotes from Dunk about his shield with the falling star His shield depicts a falling star at the evening (so an evening star falling) and he associates it with a herald of night (darkness) and with death? Brienne, daughter of the EvenStar later uses this sigil on her shield. Duncan get his metaphorical "dragon Egg" close to the time he sees the falling star. This Egg "hatches" at Whitewalls during the Second Blackfyre Rebellion. BR says: Finally Egg and Duncan die at Summerhal when another comet was in the sky.

    Going back into the discussion. It seems several days have passed since Bran saw Meera and Jojen. These scenes are after Meera's cry and before the paste: Maybe they are still in the cave or maybe they escaped.

    They went into the soup or the Singer's stew

    The last time Bran is with Hodor, Meera and Jojen are not there and their alcove is empty and cold: So I vote probably.

    The process of hatching a dragon from normal eggs seems to be a mystery for the Targs too. After the Doom they started with 5 dragons and only two are known to have hatched between the Doom and the Conquest. After that the number seems to have risen quickly; 6 hatched during Aegon I's reign and by the Dance of Dragons they had 19 additional living Dragons (plus Vhagar that was born before the conquest)

    From F&B we get that Morning hatched in the Vale while Rhaena was under the protection of Jeyne Arryn. It looks like this dragon went through a normal hatching. The ritual (or prophetic event) seems to be only about hatching eggs that turned to stone.

    We can't be sure if we are looking at pieces of an old Valyrian "in case of emergency" procedure or if the Targs were trying to fulfill a prophecy from a vision (say from Signs and Portents). Or even if it is a cyclical event that has happened in the past and will happen again. Summerhal, Dany's ritual and Mel's ideas share several elements that point towards a shared idea: stone dragons, red comet, a lot of fire, blood magic, death/sacrifice of a father and a child. Even shadows if we count Duncan as a white shadow.

    There is a quote than sounds like a prophecy/recipe for waking dragons: Might be a bit cargo cultish, but there is probably some link to the actual magical process. I think Aemon is also referencing his family when he talks of "better men", maybe Aegon V and/or Rhaegar.

    After Drogon attacks the heart, the Undying switch to multiple dead languages. Maybe Drogon broke the link that allowed Dany (or the narrator) to understand them:
