    Random Though: Jon was named "Brandon" by Lyanna

    If Jon was named Brandon and Ned changed it his name to Jon, it’s possible he did it to make the impact of him bringing his bastard home less of a blow to Catelyn. She was betrothed to Brandon before marrying Ned.
  2. I’d say he’s talking about himself being a humble piece in Cersei’s plans and that he has a will of his own; making his own moves instead of the ones she planned for him.

    GRRM's cryptic location blog post

    A couple of posts before that one he says he’s taking a break from the Not A Blog for awhile. Maybe he just doesn’t want anyone knowing where he is so he can actually get some work done.

    Brienne's Honor in Pennytree

    If Brienne is not lying, could Lem Lemmoncloak be holding the girl, who helped nurse Brienne back to health after her fight with Biter, against her? I'm not sure why he would hold her and not Poderick. It's also possible that, if Sandor is the gravedigger and he did follow Brienne, Sandor has taken one of the orphan girls from the BWB in a similar way that he took Arya from them and is holding her against Brienne for some reason.

    Was Robert doomed to fail from the start?

    It’s my opinion that a lot of Robert’s behavior after winning the crown was due to the loss of Lyanna; in part due to her death, as well as the possibility that she ran off with Rhaegar. He made Lyanna out to be the perfect woman and to compensate for losing her he whored and drank and feasted. Yes, he fathered a bastard in the Vale before he was betrothed to her and she had fears he would not keep to her bed alone; but I believe losing her exaggerated these behaviors. He was also stuck in a love-less marriage with Cersei. His whoring may have been lessened if he were married to a woman who loved him and that he had love for as well; that may not have slowed his drinking or feasting though (we see him in a drinking contest at the Tourney at Harrenhal).

    Any examples of undying loyalty in the books?

    The Blackfish was loyal to Robb Stark before disappearing from Riverrun, still flying the banner of House Stark during the Seige of Riverrun.
