    Craziest Theories

    Oh, I've read the series. I love it. I enjoy reading other people's ideas on the parallels and similarities between the two series. I believe @sweetsunray has read the series a few times as well. If you ever start a thread on this, please tag me!

    Craziest Theories

    @By Odin's Beard I am enjoying your MST/ASoIaF parallel discussion.

    Wow, I never noticed that. Vol. 18

    That would be poetic justice for Jorah being unable to "see" the irony of the former slaver becoming the slave.

    Names inspirations

    Marya (Davos' wife) is from a character in Tad Williams' Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn. Similarly, Shadrach is an inspiration from the same series. In MST his name is Cadrach, but the role is quite similar in MST as George uses (and will use) in aSoIaF.

    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.

    How did you pick your screen name?

    With that name, you do not need creative synthesis.

    How did you pick your screen name?

    @Lyanna<3Rhaegar Great idea for a thread! There are so many screen names on this site which I have wondered about. May I finally have some answers! Thanks for the '<3' explanation. I'm afraid I am mystified by the magical art of using numbers and symbols for words or meaning. @Ygrain, your name is one which I have been curious about before. Thanks for the explanation! @Daendrew, I had always figured this was a play on a real life name mixed with the Targaryen 'ae' spelling. I guess I wasn't too far off in my assumption. @Lost Melnibonean, your name is one which i was proud to recognize right away. Great series. I do have a name question for you though, who is @Lost Melnibonean II? As to my own name choice, it is two-parter. First, it is a play on the phrase "brother from another mother", which is basically a phrase for a friend whom you may think of as close as a brother. Second, it comes from a combination of ideas in the novels. The numerous baby switches is one. Another is how Craster's male offspring are Others from a mother. I look forward to seeing some more names and explanations on here.

    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.

    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.
  11. Just saw this pop up on my Google home screen from your reddit post (my phone knows me far too well). Congratulations @Daendrew! That is quite the find. Is this something you have been searching for, did you happen upon it, do you frequent book auctions just in case something like this shows up? I need more details!
