    What if Robert killed during tourney because he ignored his hand and jousted?

    Nothing would have changed. Ned would still discover the twincest, threaten cersei and then beheaded. The story would continue as written

    The irony -- Eddard Stark, by dismissing the deserter, disregarded the message of the (red) trees, which as it so happens is none Other than the words of his own House -- Winter Is Coming! ;)

    As you so astutely have noted, Gared 'had the ear' of the Others (or vice versa).  Thus, Ned disregarded the message of the Others at his peril; everything 'went south', literally and figuratively (essentially deserting his post at Winterfell); and he was beheaded -- like the deserter, whom he mirrors -- by Ice.

    Yes. This is the complex type of foreshadowing that the author uses. Ned was dolmed from the very beginning. He ignored the message and killed the messenger with Ice. Later, his message was ignored and he was killed by ice.

    .Yes, indeed.

    I disagree. Rivers is not wrong. He is quite clear about the past being the past. If he was wrong, Bran could have had a conversation with his dad, told him of the impending others invasion, the twincest and the folly of going to king's landing and seperating the family allowing Ned to rally the north, reinforce the watch, make peace with the wildlings, contact the children of the forest  and unite humanity above the neck against the return of the ice demons effectively undoing the whole story before Dance. That would suck ass. So, the past is simply the past that a lucky few like Bran can see. That sight will allow him to reveal Jon's bio parentage.

    When have you ever known Bran to respect a restriction? "No more climbing..." Famous last words!

    Have we seen bran climb anything since he fell?  Bl,oodraven said he would never climb again, but he would fly, and bloodraven was correct.

    hat Theon heard Bran, so I see no reason to assume the same could not be true of the encounter with his father.

    Bran-raven was talking to theon in real time. Not from the future to an unchangable past

    About to take off so can't get into it now. But no,  Bran will not change the past. IMO. 

    Bingo!

    What do you think, @Dorian Martell's son ?

    A most interesting topic...

    (I've been thinking of you, as the keen and merciless eye of Dorian bears down on Florida... :whip:  B) )

    I'll be in my bunk :devil:

    Going through older threads here in this website, I've noted that many people think that "A Feast for Crows" and "A Dance with Dragons" are much less enjoyable, if not outright boring books compared to the earlier books in GRRM's series. Most likely this kind of thread was once made already, but has any re-read or anything else changed your opinion over the years? Or have you always liked them, or always and forever hated them? If you don't like them, is it because of something other than "nothing happens"?

    Personally, I've always loved the 4th and 5th book. 

    Yes, they are good. on the first read feast kinda sucked because there was no tyrion, dany or any other character I was used to. The second read was awesome

    For whatever reason, Renly isn't killed by Melisandre's shadow and Renly crushes Stannis' forces outside Storms End.

    So what now? Is there any hope for Joffrey and the Lannisters with Renly (and the Tyrells) victorious?

    How do events play out on Dragonstone with Stannis dead and his army annihilated? 

    He dies after he crushes Stannis and Stannis rallies so the story continues as written

    This can't be true...

    Dorian Martell's son succumbing to the pressure and referencing the abomination, is all hope now lost?

    Dorian Martell would be sad.

    :cheers:

    well, the entire thing we shall not mention has come and gone while waiting for a single book, and while I am sure a few things may be different, the "big reveal" has been spoiled 3 years ago and George himself has stated on his blog that he may not finish the series even though he intends to do so. We have what we have

    Let's assume that Robb had been more assertive after the death of Ned Stark and his victories against the Lannisters at Riverrun. Say he decides to do the honourable thing and side with Stannis, even against Renly and Joffrey and whatnot. What do he and Stannis do differently? 

    Nothing. Robb would still get killed at the red wedding to make the story work as written.

    Was Lion of The Night and his demons wights that came from the Grey Waste that attacked The Five Forts? And maybe LOTN was a second commander of the Night King, charged to take Essos? 

    That was probably just the tales of the long night that changed and mutated over generations and thousands of leagues of travel. After something as destructive as the long night, with people starving and dying from the cold and famine, communication lines would not be very strong.

    I would interpret it as "No", since you label both predictions as "baseless", and baseless predictions are usually wrong.  But let me know if you'd rather I treat this as a non-answer.

    Since we cannot speak about ASOIAF in other media formats, All I can say is that as of now in the books, at best Sandor is seriously injured on an island where nobody speaks or at worst dead and buried.  Those two things do not lend themselves to killing much of anything, much less enormous reanimated  corpses or giant flying fire breathing reptiles

    How do you know?

    Yes, could be done. Why not? They even showed only the arrival of the Golden Company, no Essos at all yet. I don't think we will see more from the Faceless Men. Arya might use her ability, though.

    We see The Golden company arrived in Westeros, not leaving Essos.  Essos as a setting is done

    It says he was born in 276. (World of Ice and Fire Aerys chapter)

    Few pages later in Year of False Spring chapter, which was 281. Viserys would be 5. 

    It says “Prince Viserys was but seven years of age”. 

    Why this 2 year discrepancy? Am I missing something? Just wondering

    I couldn’t find an explanation, but sorry if this is already discussed. 

    yet another clue in lemon gate and proof that R+L=J is false
