    Small Questions v. 10105

    You're the best @The Map Guy! I have a hard time finding anything you write that I can agree with, but I am enjoying the search! Seven blessings to you!

    The three Kingsguard were loyal to Rhaegar, not Aerys.

    Oh sweet summer child...

    Wow, I never noticed that v.17

    In case you needed more reason to believe the Others will not like dragons... I just noticed this on a re read of F & B. Aegon III, the Dragonbane, known for his dislike of dragons, is described as a "pale shadow". I don't need to post all the times the Others are described as "pale shadows", right?

    The Others emerging from the weirwoods

    I'm with @Therae here. I think George is using the word "wood" to mean group of trees or forest. Not literally coming out of wood. But I have been wrong before.

    The Others emerging from the weirwoods

    It's been a while for me, but I have read all of LML's essays. I do not recall him suggesting that the Others literally come from the trees. Symbolically, yes. If he did suggest this, it would be on one if his earlier essays, making it even tougher for me to remember. I wish @LmL was still frequenting the boards and could answer you himself. You could check into it though. lucifermeanslightbringer.com Sorry, I don't know how to post a link from my phone. It would be one of the earlier essays. It's going to be a lot to dig through but it is worth it, IMO. Even though I don't necessarily agree with everything he writes, he definitely gives you some new ideas to think about and is able to do it with clear and entertaining writing.

    The Others emerging from the weirwoods

    It is difficult to assess this idea without knowing the specifics. If you find something on where this idea comes from please post. My assumption is that the idea comes from this line if the Prologue in GoT. While this line may indicate that the Others' origination has something to do with wierwoods, I don't think it means the Others are physically or literally "staying in" or "emerging" from the trees. Keep in mind that the other Others in this scene are said to emerge from the shadows, and I believe in Sam's scene the Other emerges from darkness.

    Does Jamie know that Peck testified against Tyrion?

    (Spoilers) Unwin Peake is Cersei Lannister

    Unwin's failures are what make him more similar to Cersei, IMO.

    Who is Haldon Halfmaester?

    Which echoes quite nicely with another sphinx currently at the citadel.

    (Spoilers) Sandoq is Robert Strong

    How so? Am I missing something?

    References and Homages

    F & B spoiler. Page 670 (U.S.) @The Fattest Leech This has got to be a nod to kemmering in Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness. The greatest Leech already let me know George was a big fan of Le Guin. This one seems spot on to me.

    (Spoilers) Sandoq is Robert Strong

    I think this is a solid parallel. Sandoq is called the Shadow. This echos Robert's former nickname, the Mountain. Sandoq's appearance: You will recall that Robert does not speak or show his face either. He is also tall. We do not know what it looks like at this point, but I doubt he is an attractive beast. I find it interesting that George decided to have Sandoq show a fondness for music, apparently talented enough with a 'queer stringed instrument of goldenheart and ebony" to make Larra weep. Any ideas why George would include this? Is he just humanizing Sandoq?

    Exactly. Nice find.

    (Spoilers) Unwin Peake is Cersei Lannister

    Isn't Cersei trying to get rid of Margaery? Obviously the parallels are not going to be exactly the same, but there are several there to see. I'm not sure why this matters. Did Peake conspire to murder his children? Couldn't the same be said of Cersei? Again, not everything is going to be exactly the same. There are more parallels than just this. She appointed several members of her council and the Kingsguard, and city watch.
