  1. All in all 23 members have answered until now. Above I give the numbers. Some surprises for me. ad E) I was tempted to vote for the implication of the Faceless Men in the murder of Raff the Sweetling (finally I didn't). But it is not so far fetched. Only 2 versus 18 votes though for this. ad G) I expected though that some might think that Jaime's life would end, if Brienne brings him to Lady Stoneheart, but noone did. ad K) Overwhelming vote for Stannis to survive and win the battle at the Crofter's village. I thought to have read some theories about Stannis dying and/or losing,
  2. This is a pure summary of predictions. No discussions.
  3. I am sorry if you dislike the thread. A big part of this forum discussion is about theories and trying to bolster them with arguments derived from what has been published by GRRM. I am astonished how well people have puzzled out things by reading the story very carefully. I am learning constantly about the story by reading posts on this forum. And I have the impression that forum members listen to what other members have written. My intention was just to make a check-list of some questions that have been discussed on this forum. So, where is the harm?
  4. What makes you believe that besides warging and Greenseeing, Bran would also have the capability to ressurrect dead people? Wouldn't that be a bit too much magic concentrated in one person? To me that doesn't feel like what GRRM would do. He has stated, that in fantasy the use of magic required prudence and that there shouldn't be too much of it. Besides, I think that at least for TWOW Bran will stay in the cave with the COTF and the 3Eyed Raven, much to learn he still has, our young Bran-Padawan.
  5. Within half a year we will - hopefully - have TWOW in our hands (and devour it). Then some will triumphantly claim they had been right with their theories, others will not. Why not state the position towards several theories here and now, so we can see who was close to the mark. I selected 14 questions: A) Who is the "Hodded Man" in Winterfell? 1 Hallis Mollen 2 Harwin 3 Someone else B ) Who wrote the Pink Letter 1 Ramsay Bolton 2 Stannis 3 Someone else C) Rickon Stark, Shaggydog and Davos return alive from Skagos and Rickon is presented to Stannis and/or House Manderly 1 Yes 2 No D) Jon Snow after the mutiny at the Night Watch 1 is dead and needs resurrection by Melissandre 2 is only wounded 3 other E) Arya's killing of Raff the Sweetling (or someone from the entourage of Harys Swyft) was done on the orders of the Faceless Men 1 Yes 2 No F) Arya hears of or meets fArya (Jeyne Poole) 1 Yes 2 No G) Jamie/Brienne Lady Stoneheart 1 Brienne and Jamie meet Lady Stoneheart and Jamie survives the meeting 2 Brienne and Jamie meet Lady Stoneheart and Jamie does not survive the meeting 3 Other Outcome H) The boy with Jon Connington landing in Westeros in ADWD is Aegon Targaryen, the second child and only son of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen and Princess Elia Martell 1 True 2 False (thus he is a fake = fAegon) I) Jon Snow’s true parentage 1 Rhaegar+Lyanna = Jon Snow 2 Ned Stark + Ashara =Jon Snow 3 Other parentage J) Grey Scale will be transmitted by Jon Connington and/or Shireen Baratheon to other people 1 Yes 2 No K) The outcome of the Battle of Ice (at the Crofters Village), the capture of Winterfell is not included 1 Stannis wins and survives 2 Stannis wins but dies 3 The Boltons win L) Who is the Harpy in Mereen? 1 Hizdahr zo Loraq 2 Galazza Galare 3 Reznak mo Reznak 4 someone else M) Robb’s will disinherits Sansa 1 Yes 2 No N) If Victarion orders the dragon horn (“dragonbinder”) to be blown, Victarion himself gains control over at least one dragon 1 True 2 False My choice is (from A-N): A1-B1-C1-D2-E2-F1-G1-H1-I1-J1-K1-L3-M1-N2
  6. Which King, Stannis or the one in Kings Landing (Joffrey/Tommen)?
  7. So, what exactly would the crime be? Mance is under the NW jurisdiction, the LC can do as he likes with Mance.
  8. You may be right, but: 1) For sending knives is too late (only a raven can arrive at CB before Jeyne does). 2) Neither Roose nor Ramsay - as far as we know - have a good knowledge of what is going on at CB. Except for what Mance or the Spearwives may have told when nicely asked. But provoking Jon is something, they can do; they know he is LC, they know he will have an emotional conflict, they can assume he doesn't like it to be called a bastard.
  9. Who else then? Because someone must have written this "stupid" letter.
  10. ?? Should he have written: My bride is still with me, but please send her back???? What is your point?
  11. I just put myself in Ramsay's mind. Or in Roose's mind, if you want. fArya must return, best if Jon doesn't even have the opportunity to have a closer look at her. If the word about fArya's real identity is spread in the North, the Boltons are in real big trouble.
  12. I would like to follow the argumentation line, that the most plausible solution is that Ramsay wrote the letter. I would even go so far to say, it doesn't matter if the battle at the crofter's village already happened or what its outcome was. All the information in the letter (Wildling princess, Mance and his Spearwives came from CB to rescue fArya) can be provided by the surviving Spearwives and/or Mance. Mance would also know that the NW calls Val the "Wildling princess", And about Stannis' Family and Melisandre. Mance may have shared all this with his Spearwives too. Based on this, Ramsay would know: fArya and Theon (who fled with fArya) are on their way to CB. Independent of Stannis he would panic, as blowing up the true identiy of fArya would be the worst scenario for the Boltons, worse even than losing a battle outside Winterfell. So he writes this aggressive letter to Jon, trying to provoke a reaction in the hope that fArya is send back to him. As I said: Independent of the Battle of Ice, this is what I would expect Ramsay to do. Even Roose would know about the consequences of blowing up fArya's fake identity.
