  1. Stannis to Cressen, minutes before his self-poisoning.
  2. Jon will be a king, but not a King of Westeros. He will be the Corn King. He will sacrifice himself for the land. Jon XII, DWD
  3. Good stuff, @Walda! The possibility of the first Hand to "die" being JonCon is quite interesting. However, I don't believe we hear about JonCon until Storm. (Please correct me if I am wrong.) I tried to find something about this in the SSM but couldn't.
  4. That would be poetic justice for Jorah being unable to "see" the irony of the former slaver becoming the slave.
  5. Robert and Ned in the crypts: I never noticed the irony of this statement. Robert is talking about Joff and Sansa. Joff is not his blood. Later, in aCoK, Arya and Gendry bond when traveling the Riverlands together. Gendry is Robert's blood. So, in a way, Robert and Ned's kids are bonded. Just not the two he thought would be.
  6. I would guess that this has been noticed before, but just in case it has not... Arya, AGOT No wonder Arya was not hungry! Arya is expected to eat a plate of ribs. The ribs remind her of what Jeyne had told her about how Mycah's body was 'butchered like a pig they slaughtered'. Side note- I believe this is the first time George plays with the cannibalism motif which will be so prevalent in later books.
  7. DwD, The Lost Lord George has changed his ASOIAF plans several times (the infamous letter, the addition of the Blackfyre storyline, five year gap). I'm wondering if George is the fat man changing his plans and he is having a little fun with his readers here. I mean, he could have just written Illyrio.
  8. How do I find a thread I created several years ago? It looks like the search parameters end at 365 days.
  9. A bad teacher doesn't even show the proper way to grip a sword. Tyrion III, GoT The first lesson from a good teacher: Arya II, GoY
  10. I'm becoming more and more convinced that George read a lot of Ursala K. Leguin. From Rocannon's World (page 18 in the 1966 version): "Once you had it, it is said." "Much is said, up there where the sun blinks." "And words are borne off by the winds, where there are winds to blow." Sounds very similar to "words are wind". This conversation is taking place in a cave. I wonder if George plays with this idea as well. This makes me want to reassess conversations which take place in caves and crypts (no wind) in ASoIaF. Is it possible that only truths are told underground? I'm going to look into this some more. @The Fattest Leech because I think you will find this interesting.
  11. Either there isn't much that tells us Euron is allied with the Deep Ones or @Sensenmenn is writing and editing the longest thread in westeros.org history.
  12. This has probably been noticed before, but it wasy first time. Bran on his sick bed as a Child of the Forest (before we knew what the CotF looked like). I love that he is described as a leaf. I wonder if this is why George named Leaf Leaf. Also the eyes saw nothing, but the reader will learn that they will see everything. And of course, wind will carry him to his grave...
