    Are There any Unicorns in Skagos?

    in my humble opinion all she does is "lumps" them with species extinct or border line extinct.

    "The Others Take You"

    Wow, my dear, your attention to detail is awesome! Okay, granted, I am not great with detail, especially warging chapters. Ironically, although I love the theme of the ultimate war with the less human elements, chapters like that prologue, on a first read, I tend to find dull and I want to know more about the main characters. But how wrong could I be!!! lol That is a huge catch and it seems to support my "semi-cooked" theory that they loose at least a big part of their humanity and memories as they "assimilate." Still, we can only speculate, as George is keeping us in the dark on purpose for now lol. I guess Thistle is going through a transformation not alike, say, a human becoming a vampire or something in literature. So I guess she will have to adapt a bit but I am still thinking that Other's eyes (those blue eyes) sense things we do not, or else why the emphasis! I have to say you are making me think about stuff that hadn't crossed my mind until now, even after several re-reads lol and for that I am grateful lol Martin seems to take from very many sources and do his own thing lol, hence he is so great IMHO. Now, not following why you mention the need for a female antagonist, other than Afrrodita is a female goddess. Also you mean antagonist to the Others, to humanity or to fire??? In any event, if I had to put 10 dollars on it I would go for Quaithe as female antagonist. Not sure exactly what she is antagonist to but if I saw her in real life I would run a mile from her for sure. I don't think she is a deity but my bet is on immortal. I think Mel is just like her maid or something... Now, when talking about mythology and stuff happening in ASOIAF we have to consider Euron too. I think he will succeed at making himself some sort of deity. It won't pan out for him in the end, I don't think, but he will certainly give our main characters "something to fight" "me thinks"...

    No disrespect at all and I am well aware of the four elements, which I believe they go back to Ancient Greece, but could you kindly expand on this re this topic because I am hugely intriged and I would like to know more lol

    "The Others Take You"

    Oh, another interesting "catch." Until now I had always asume that their eyes are blue once they become Others, I don't know, to differentiate them from humans in world, I guess... but there must be more to it than that. What do they "see" or "sense" with these blue eyes (more or less than before???). Does the eye replacement means they do no longer remember who they were??? Okay, this ain't fool-proof but when the former members of the NW attacked Commander Mormont it looks as if they knew him but they had changed alegiance. I need to read that scene again because this could be important, i.e. do they preserve memories? Do the blue eyes provide advantages? I am sure we do not have enough canon info yet but my wager is on "yes." They have to. It is possible that this is just a cosmetic feature but it has too much potential narratively speaking and after all, as they say "the eyes are the mirror of the soul." I could even contemplate, in theory, the possibility that the Others are "assimilated" as per science fiction and that they are part of a collective ruled mentally either by the founder or a small group a la Small Council... and that their blue eyes (which are not of a hue human eyes can be) means they are all the same or something. But, whatever the weather (pardon the silly pun) I think they can see or sense things mortals cannot.

    "The Others Take You"

    Yes, I am pretty sure they cannot reproduce in the way we do lol Now, I must be getting senile but I can't remember if this is in the books or the show (more likely books somewhere) that this Night's King (the former Lord Commander) mated with a female Other but by all means, anyone, refresh my memory if you wish. To be honest, I cannot imagine what the Others could be doing with Craster's male newborns and it is interesting that they only take the males. Now, are there any female WWs? There are certainly wight ones though... Okay, this may just be TV show but I guess it applies to both media since they take whatever corpses are available for that purpose, animals included. Now, I agree that they cannot stay babies as this would be useless. Maybe they just need their DNA, or something equivalent in world, but it seems obvious to me that they need these babies for a reason, babies who are human. It may even be a requirement that they have the blood of the First Men, but this is just guess work and further speculation on my part lol. Now that I think of it, okay Craster mates with his daughters because that is what he has available. However, just like the Targs do it to keep the bloodlines pure it may turn out that he needs to do this to to fulfil his bargain with the Others, i.e. backing up my theory of the pure blood of the First Men or something but hey, as I said, I could well be wrong. Now, thank you for pointing out about Asshai re no children or animals, wow, had totally forgotten. Asshai is a place that I would definitely fear... I wonder if they are all undeads or something. I reckon this deserves a topic in itself and again, thanks so much for mentioning. The way I view this environmental / power crises they are having is as some sort of imbalance between fire (Summer) and ice (Winter) as per the Seelie and Unseelie Celtic fairy mythology, although of course with some tweaks from George. As for the Night King/Night's King yeah I was referring to the books' version but I don't think they are that far apart actually, but yes the one that was once Lord Commander. Wasn't he the one who mated with the female Other according to legend? I haven't got the books at hand right this minute but there are definitely hints re he being a Stark. Also the connection with Bran the Builder appears more than coincidental although he probably was just someone (the Builder) who knew enough to build strong protections around the Wall and WF and possibly other buildings which would indicate strong exposure to the Others I guess... C'mon George, give us the book!!! It's fun to brainstorm and speculate though in the meantime

    Did Tyrion have feelings for Sansa?

    Yes, there is all that valuable hostage or not. If his own concern was the "valuable hostage" as long as she was in one piece, and far more chance with him than others since he is a member of the royal family who often shows Joff up. I think he does care for her in an initial sort of level which is not the same as caring for a dear family member or whatever. Furthermore, I think, once she is out of KL she cares for him too, at least at that "initial" level. Not necessarily saying this will end in romance (doubted with this series) but it will be a friendship overall at the very least...

    Here I was referring to the murders actually. Why include the plot at all to show that Walder is a little shit, we already know that. Anyhow, will be back later, off to cook dinner for some friends lol

    "The Others Take You"

    If they manage to possess these Old Kings, yes... although some of them still have swords, rusted or not, and I think the "kinslaying" thing is why WF has been kind of immune (just a theory though) but it may well come to that, not just a dance of dragons but a dance of dead Starks. lol these forums are brilliant in that brainstorming with other members can generate ideas in my mind that hadn't occurred to me before. Actually, sorry, I think (again of course cannot be sure), the dead ones that become vulnerable may just be the ones whose swords were taken not the whole of the dead Kings/Lords.

    "The Others Take You"

    Sorry, I am not very good at remembering exactly when things happened and yes some of them do but what would be the plot purpose? I mean, we all know the guy is a nasty piece of work, and we know about the Freys and the Red Wedding. Why hammer the issue (on George's part) there has to be more, I suspect...

    "The Others Take You"

    Okay, I am just theorising here so I could well be totally off the mark. Still, Craster offering his male newborns to the Others has to serve a purpose. The Others can very easily make wights out of any dead body, so why do they need Craster's babies? I don't, by the way, think there is anything too specific about Craster's blood for it to be necessary to make WWs, although it could be that they have to be the blood of the First Men, say... So it wouldn't make sense for the Others to have to offer protection to Craster for providing babies if these babies were just to become wights, since anyone dead will do lol so that is why I conclude (in the absence of further info) that they are turning them into WWs, i.e. elite within the Others' hierarchy in some level. I am sorry if I did not expressed myself correctly or clearly. No, I don't believe humanity is under threat from the Kings in the North (that we know of) but there is a strong connection between the Night King and the Starks which has been hinted at numerous times (again, as always I could be wrong and George could have tried to mislead us via Old Nana etc). My thought is that they could be vulnerable in their graves (they were not burnt) without the swords and could awake as wights or something (or WWs). Also, if it turns out that it is true that the Night King was a Stark mortal once he might have a "special interest" in enlisting his kin. However, pardon the pun, I think this may well be a double-edged sword in that I don't think he will attack Winterfell (although might siege it) due to the taboo re killing kin. I know this could be a stretch though, but it kind of makes sense to me. It is true to say that the Old King's bodies will be nothing but dust by now but maybe something remains... mayhaps enough to turn them. In any event, I would find it a bit odd if all that built up wasn't leading somewhere, I mean the crypts, Old Nana, Bran the Builder etc. Again, and of course still speculating, it may be that only a Stark can end the Night King... (not sure how or why) but the connection appears so strongly hinted at that there has to be some kind of a link. Okay, maybe the dragons can do it too but maybe the Starks need the dragons to physically do it but maybe the dragons alone could not do it themselves. Still a lot of loose ends like what is the role of R'hollor etc (if any)? Things, despite the show and I won't mention spoilers seem to point at Jon in a big way but Bran has to be huge in this too. Digressing a bit I believe the WWs are not without some sort of justification and I am inclined to believe that there will be some sort of a truce as opposed to an incontestable defeat by the living but that is another topic.

    "The Others Take You"

    I have to say you make excellent points here. Not a 100% certain about Theon selling the swords but yes his attire appears quite overdone, although perhaps is because we see it from the POV of his father (as it is Balon who brings it out in dialogue) as opposed to, say, Theon himself dressing up to impress from his own POV, although he must have done thinking about it... Yet, the Starks with the exception perhaps of Sansa are probably among the less ostentatious noble family in Westeros lol so if that looked ostentatious to Balon, mayhaps it was... Good observations in any event but I am definitely convinced that the crypts and their "inhabitants" are going to be important. Also, what is going on with all these murders in WF in the preview chapters for TWOW though lol...

    Why do people hate Sansa?

    and you are the one suggesting I can only resolve conflict or assume it can be resolved by violence??? Hell, Almighty!!! So Arya (who I generally like, but has flaws like all the others) just decides to turn vigilante and kill a man, not in any way a danger to her, or under her jurisdiction (to me the most reckless thing she has done thus far). In awe here!!! Sansa is undergoing training in politics just like Arya is in killing and steath and Bran with the 3-Eyed Raven, if you guys things her training is for nothing you may have a shock at some point. Sansa is not just training with Petyr but has been exposed to KL, to Tyrion, Cersei...Varys.. Just because she is good at sewing (arts and crafts), music, poetry (literature) she is not a less valuable member of society to someone who is good at maths or architecture. Most of us have a place in this world and the arts and things like organising banquets and possibly interior design and fashion design are well paid professions in our day! Arya is a valiant soldier and we need many of them, even today sadly. She will fight with skill and honour and were she to die on duty these days she would have a very honorable funeral but at the end of the day, we need people like them both. Arya's skills, granted, are more immediately needed when they are facing the Others etc but when they come to rebuild, in spring, people like Sansa would cheer the place up with children, and knitted blankets and keeping accounts in order and ladyship duties. We all have a place in this world!
