    The Five Forts

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ih_ZAGCfMY0 The Five Forts are mentioned at 7:25 onwards, comparisons to the wall are made along with local legends of the Long Night and The Others/White Walkers

    Why do book readers hate R+L=J?

    Given that this happened before Ned was married to Cat means that Ned would have little reason to keep the identity of Jon's mother a secret or keep him at winterfell for every one to see The only source on this is a boy who is the same age as Sansa and therefore is too young to have witnessed these events and as a result this theory is just a flimsy

    Least favorite theory?

    Another rung in the ladder of reasons as to why i can't stand Bran, every other chapter he either thinks about his climbing exploits or about how he wanted to become a knight. Given he never listened when asked not to climb on things i can only imagine that he would have made a terrible squire, because that entails doing what are told and when you are told. I just can't see Bran doing that.
  4. Given that she expressed hesitation over the matter when the betrothal was announced over whether he would keep to her bed or not, a matter in which she would be later proven correct, i'd say not. Ned also thinks about this rather grimly because he believed that Robert would be a good and honest husband, yet by this time he has seen too many examples of his blatant infidelity for this to be true.
  5. More than likely he's salty that he didn't get his Stark bride, indeed the whole reason he proposes the match between Joffrey and Sansa is because he and Lyanna couldn't. Feast, Cersei V and Cersei VIII Given that Ned corrects him about whether Lyanna would argue with him about competing in the melee amongst other things hints towards the fact the he never knew her at all, indeed the only time we know of them meeting each other was at Harrenhal, nor do we know of them exchanging letters in the time that they were betrothed.

    Jon will get wightified, a theory by Lothar Frey

    Pray tell me what more could he do to convince them? I don't mean to sound like a dick, but has it not occured to you that some people simply do not care? We see Jon and Aemon writing letters to King's Landing, the response is to do nothing at all because it is not their problem, Jon also mentions if the wildlings are not allowed past the wall they will become wights and the NW leadership expresses indifference to this matter.

    The Marriage Game

    The Starks have married with the Royces and the Blackwoods before, but that's about it

    The Marriage Game

    i wouldn't exactly call Arianne too dumb to live, but her actions clearly indicate a certain recklessness and that she doesn't care anymore, ever since she read the letter saying that Quentyn would rule Dorne she has believed that Doran planned to disinherit her and therefore has adopted a rebellious personality since that time. The plot to crown Myrcella is her way of trying to draw Dorne into the conflict iirc. She then throws it all in Doran's face when he reveals the truth to her.

    The Marriage Game

    Far from it, yes he can scheme with the rest of them but in no way is he a "mastermind". He manages to secure the betrothal for Arianne, but then sits on his arse and does nothing else and then after a time decides to send one of his sons on a truly pointless and hopeless endevour to try and woo Daenerys, with a document that she knows nothing about, and with the false promises of 50,000 swords which do not exist. We all know how that turns out, so i can only imagine what his reaction will be when all his "carefully" laid plans crumble down around him.

    Thank you so much for this, i was about to mention all this when i found your post

    Wow, I never noticed that v.16

    I looked and it simply says he fell in love in with Lyanna and Ned agreed to bring the suit to Winterfell.

    It doesn't say, as far as I know the books do not mention Robert ever visiting Winterfell before Game, but since he has knowledge of the crypts and how the Starks bury their dead it's possible he has, however Ned could have told him all of these things at the Vale. Hopefully we'll learn about Lyanna's source of information about Robert and his bastards.

    Here you go, Robert will never keep to one bed," Lyanna had told him at Winterfell, on the night long ago when their father had promised her hand to the young Lord of Storm's End. "I hear he has gotten a child on some girl in the Vale." Ned had held the babe in his arms; he could scarcely deny her, nor would he lie to his sister, but he had assured her that what Robert did before their betrothal was of no matter, that he was a good man and true who would love her with all his heart. Lyanna had only smiled. "Love is sweet, dearest Ned, but it cannot change a man's nature."

    Not sure about this, iirc Ned has a memory of the night of Lyanna's betrothal and that the announcment was made in Winterfell.

    Can we talk about Jon?

    I wholeheartedly agree, when he told Theon that he was a Stark as well, i actually said out loud "I'll bet that's a real comfort to all the people that he killed"
