    Will Selyse burn Shireen?

    Shireen will burn. Mel will do it. I doubt her parents will be the one to light the match

    Do you think Victarion Greyjoy is a psycopath?

    It was, which makes it all the more psycho that Vic killed her

    Poll: Is Quentyn, Called 'Frog', Still Alive?

    you are correct sir. Now, as in everything I have stated as fact in the last 7 years on this forum, if I am somehow proven wrong I invite folks to gloat. But I am supremely confident that Quentyn is in fact dead as disco

    Poll: Is Quentyn, Called 'Frog', Still Alive?

    No, I wouldn't. As there is text to say if I am correct or not.

    Shade of the evening.

    My original point was that there was no sacrifice to the shade tree mentioned and I am correct. That was the point of the OP. The undying are not tree bound like Bloodraven and eventually Bran. The shade trees are merely a magical resource. Now, the undying consuming dany for her powers does seem to be a sacrifice. but it isn't to a tree

    If you can find it in the books you will prove me wrong...........

    Shade of the evening.

    There is no connection between the weirwoods and the shade trees other than a literary one. It is and yes, because there is nothing about it in the books, no, the trees that make shade of the evening do not receive sacrifices like the weirwood trees of westeros. No possibility, no chance. The house of the undying is gone and the readers will not see Qarth anymore in the story. The warlocks we have seen, but the shade trees are on the other side of the world from where Euron has them now. Mayhaps GRRM will write a novella about the Undying ones, but I doubt it. Jojen was never harvested or sacrificed. He is depressed in a cave. Jojen paste is fan fic that comes out of nearly a decade between book releases. Executions under weirwoods are sacrifices as shown in Bran's look into the past, the tale of white harbor and inadvertently, Maester Luwin when he was given mercy by Osha under the heart tree. I get that weirwood sacrifice is well established, but since the author did not specifically mention that a sacrifice was made to the shade trees, we can safely say that none are made ever.

    I get it, there is just nothing in the books that says sacrifices are made to the shade tree. It is a resource that is harvested. That is all

    How did Tywin reach King’s Landing before the Rebel army?

    \/ \/ At the publishing of the first book, GRRM did not have the geography of westeros locked in. he had rough ideas. The point is that Tywin waited to see which side won before he commited his forces and that he was willing to sack the city and kill the prince's wife and children to prove his loyalty. It is really sad that we are nearly a decade between book releases so us loyal fans end up discussing technical aspects of troop movements published 20 years ago instead of getting to read the next part of the story

    Poll: Is Quentyn, Called 'Frog', Still Alive?

    Yes. it would take a small amount of time for your eyes to melt away. and this isn't real life, it is a fantasy novel. Quentyn is dead. If he is alive in the next book then feel free to come back here and gloat, but as of now you are wrong.

    Shade of the evening.

    That does not make Dany a sacrifice, It made her a resource that the undying wanted. They wanted her magic, life and dragons. The undying are not gods. And even if they were, and dany is a sacrifice to them, there is still no reason to think that the shade trees require a sacrifice to extract their magic properties. So, as to the OP, no, there are no sacrifices to the evening shade tree

    Shade of the evening.

    It's dark blue so I would go with fungus. There are numerous references in the books to weirwood sacrifices. We see one in Bran's vision and we are told that once the northerners drove the pirates and slavers from the wolf's den they covered the heart tree with the entrails of the tormentors
  15. Dorian Martell's son

    Shade of the evening.

    Nope. nothing in the books about it. If the shade trees required a sacrifice, it would have been mentioned. The blue wine made from the bark is magical. that is it

    A new look at the puple wedding

    It isn't a real crime, it is fictional, and as a POV story, we need a POV character to convey the plot. In story, the point of involving sansa is to give LF a chance to exert control over her and give her a reason to need to flee. Remember, she is married to a lord of one of the most powerful houses in westeros. Remember, Olenna is the brains behind the house and LF was sent to being the reach into the king's fold. He spent lots of time there and at that point in the books, Joff's cruelty was well known. The plot gives the Tyrells more power and LF gets what he wants. The Tyrells already made him Lord of Harrenhal, and in one deal he went from being a minor lord of the littlest finger to a major lord allowing him to marry the lady of the Vale. The poison is not that hard to get. Maester Cressen had some on dragonstone. The point of that scene was to show what the strangler was and did. It's called foreshadowing. Also, LF is rich, and so are the Tyrells so buying it is not at issue. They did not need to know that sansa was his goal. He could have offered to set up the murder as payment for the marriage deal he brokered that ultimately conferred him great status. He has no desire to kill the Margery. He brought the Tyrells into the king's fold and because of that he gained profound status. framing Tyrion is what he needed to do to get Sansa away from King's landing. That is a possibility, but since this is not your story, maybe talk to GRRM before assuming you know the motivations of his characters. Why would he wan't chaos then? Why would he wan't the vale to ally itself with the Lannisters? He wasn't a great influence in the vale without Lyssa. and he couldn't marry her without the status of his new lordship. what would excluding her do for the plot? This way, The Tyrells are involved. I guess you can think the story would be better if you had written that part. Did you email GRRM to explain how your version of the story would be better than his?

    You can see it before your eyes melt, and no, he is roasted to death in a horribly painful way

    Why did Ned leave the bodies of his companions in Dorne?

    Plot mostly. It hints at him having other things to deal with, like a baby, named Jon. Between the stated delivery of Dawn to Starfall, and the implied care of Juan, the bones were left behind as he had to get to winterfell. He probably had Rhaegar's harp that he buried in Lyanna's crypt

    Who is the 3EC?

    the question shouldn't be who is the three eyed crow, It should be, is Brynden Rivers Really Bloodraven? ............

    A Faithful Knight in Winterfell

    right here fam Aerys was mega paranoid and only showed up to the tourney because Varys informed him of the nature of the event Because Aerys feared plotters. it is why he hired Varys in the first place. As long as there was a mystery there was potential for plots against him The king became angry when his son failed to identify the knight

    The Night’s Watch and the Gift(s) don’t make sense

    I get that, but we are talking about realism in a fantasy series. People living well beyond the lifetime of men with undead men working for them is pretty fantastic and in light of that, the realism of the number of men in the night's watch really pales in comparison

    The Night’s Watch and the Gift(s) don’t make sense

    so why don't you complain about everything magical? It is pretty far from your stated enjoyment of verisimilitude

    The Night’s Watch and the Gift(s) don’t make sense

    This fandom has a tendency to not see the forest through the trees. The dwindling watch is part of the story. The history of the gifts are part of the story. The fact that the dwindling watch cannot protect people in the gifts from wildling raids and thus they are depopulated are part of the story. People hyping on the math of troop numbers and watchmen numbers is in fact juvenile. This is a story written by one man and in nearly 20 years there have been two books published. of all the things to be critical of and think are "unrealistic" of the whole magical infused 12,000 year long history of the story, the number of folks in the watch is what bothers you? Well, I find that strange. And I am adding to the discussion. every reply I make does exactly that. Remember, this is a public forum, and part of posting in a public forum is you do not get to decide to only have responses you like

    The Night’s Watch and the Gift(s) don’t make sense

    The world works just fine. The story is that a warrior order, that used to be renowned and command absolute respect and honor of a world it was created to protect is dwindling, having lost that respect, and honor and forgotten its true purpose just when the ancient enemy is was to protect against is rising. Yes, the details of the story make it very enjoyable but those details are supposed to forward a story. It has always seemed to me that if people can accept all of the other hyper-fantastic elements of the story, like 8 to 10 thousand year old family dynasties, or networked god trees, or ladders made out of fire, the numbers of a warrior order seem small change.
