    TWOW humble opinion discussion

    It is a theory--I don't know who started it--that Nestor Royse found Sansa's shoe that fell our of the moon door when Lysa was trying to push her. Somehow it tipped him off to her identity or/and role in Lysa's death. Anyone who is a fan of the theory might be able to explain it better.

    TWOW humble opinion discussion

    Did Myrcella or Rosamund get their ear chopped off? Myrcella, but I find the Rosamund theory interest and fun to think about Will Euron take old town or high garden? I kind of think that Oldtown will be his target, but I don't know if he will "take" it. I can see his plan backfiring in a way like the kraken or whatever he awakens can't be controlled. All speculation from the new Aeron WoW chap. Will theon be sacrificed or called to a kings moot? I think he will still be alive and his bastard son from the captain's daughter (his ACOK journey to Pike) might be a contender. He did have talk with her about being his salt wife, I think. Probably wrong, though. How will Mel resurrect Jon? Will the wildings take castle black when they find out that their boy Jon is "dead"? Will the wildings fear Mel. I do think Jon will spend some time in Ghost's body, but maybe he will be resurrected when Mel tries to burn the body (king's blood, yo). From there I don't have much more speculation than a sacrifice on Ghost's part, I guess. The Free Folk would need to have a leader band them together before they attack as a group. Who wrote the Pink Letter? Ramsey. There are so many other twists and mysteries in this series that I am inclined to think a cigar is sometimes just a cigar. Whose side is Barbrey Dustin on? Barbrey Dustin is all about Barbrey Dustin and what can benefit her family the most. She probably does have a little hate for the Starks, but might only be putting on a front to survive. I don't know if she has a grand plan other than survival. Will littlefinger be killed off? I think Nestor Royce found Sansas shoe Littlefinger will survive. He is good at that, plus he is so subtle and the nobles don't even think he has the capacity for grand schemes. He also has a good read on the other characters--too much like plot armor the way his plans fall into place, but that is for a different forum thread. Tycho Bravossi guy, what in the heck is he gonna do next? Going back to the Iron Bank. Maybe enjoy the fine fare at Eastwatch, but most likely back to the life of a banker. Will Tyrion like Dany? Will Dany like Tyrion if so to what degree 1-10? 1 is dragon food 10 being hand of the queen I think they will see the mutual benefit in an alliance.This is one I can't predict at all since Dany still has a lot of prejudice against the people who overthrew her family and she is constantly underestimated by the people surrounding her. Tyrion has a penchant for mansplaining, too. It will be interesting to say the least. What will Sam do at old town (he doesn't have time to become a maester imo) He will probably be critical in providing information against Euron's attack and maybe finding key info about the Others to send to the Wall. He could be the rare case that only takes a year to get his chain. Speaking of old town what is faceless pate trying to get his hands on. This is a curious plotline because I don't know if we've seen the Faceless Men do spy work like gathering intel since we've seen their assassin work. BUT Arya did have that assignment to bring back 3 new things she learned each day, so this plotline is up in the air to me. I do really look forward to it. Will the sand snakes in KL make it out alive (I'm worried about ms tyene lady nim should do very well.) Also who from Dorne make it all the way alive? The predicament of the Dornish plotline is that Doran waits too long to execute his plans while the SS jump right in. I can't predict if any or all will make it out alive, but I don't know how relevant Doran's current plan will be if a big powerplay by another character is made. Who will Faegon marry? Who will Sansa marry? I don't know if there will be time for that. Weddings are not fun events in the seven kingdoms from the ones we've seen. Aegon or Faegon I am inclined to think he is fake, but that it is ultimately irrelevant and won't be revealed. He can still play his thematic purpose and foil to Dany without confirmation one way or another. Who is riding the other 2 dragons I actually haven't given too much thought to this. It is something I would be happy with a variety of different characters. I know it is Tyrion's dream to ride one so I might root for this. Otherwise, I always saw the other riders as a small part to the characters' overall role in the war for the dawn. Which Valyrian weapons end up in different hands? (Caggo? I think, the corpse killer will not have that VS arakh by the end of the series) This is a tough one. I think Dawn will be in different hands, though I don't know whose.

    Harry Potter and the Cursed Child being Published as a Book

    I am only halfway through my copy of the script, but the best I can say is that it is another way to be a part of the universe that really started my love of reading. Other than that, did anyone else notice that Ron seems very out of character? It's like they wanted to compensate for the lack of Weasley twins. He acted more like George than Ron. Yeah, Ron is silly from time to time, but it seems even more off than normal for him to be playing all of these jokes. Ron always wanted to stand out from his brothers not be exactly like them. He always had an identity conflict, and I'm not saying that couldn't be resolved, but this just seems so different from the Ron of The Deathly Hallows.

    why was Ladystoneheart cut out

    Giving the LSH role to someone else = "creatively it made sense to us..."

    Which new sample chapter do you want most?

    I have to agree. If a sample chapter does come out I would love for it to be Davos. I don't think his first chapter of WoW would spoil everything. It will probably be half flashback to his trip to Skagos and the other half his "politicking" to stay alive and find Rickon. Or I could be completely wrong and his first chapter is fast forwarded to a later time.
  7. The Inn at the Crossroads might be the most unlucky place to live in the current Westeros.

  8. But this lad was bolder than most, and one day when he had grown to manhood he decided he would leave the crannogs and visit the Isle of Faces
