    [Spoilers] Will Arya honor guestright?

    Sigh. I think you're probably right. So I say yes, she will honour the guest right; but sadly they seem doomed. Some of them anyway. Okay, did anyone else feel it was sinister when that scene included a innocent remark about the importance of being kind to a stranger? My hair stood up at that. Everything was going so well until that red flag. It was subtle, that easy comment. It might have been a perfectly natural soldier's saying that after all the fighting, it's a relief to be hospitable to a random person who offers no threat. It's what we would say. It's how we might put it. It's a classic theme in fairy tales. But, to me, it seemed that he'd made an accidental reference to the Westerosi seventh god, the one they never talk about. The Stranger = Death. I believe that won't end well. Did anybody else hear that as a coded warning? (By the way, I want to be wrong about that, I really do.)

    Season 7 Trailer

    Interesting that there are two such thrones, and it makes sense that Daenerys would take her seat on her ancestor's throne first.

    Sorry about that. Accidentally duplicated post. I've edited it out.

    Season 7 Trailer

    I'm guessing it's Daenerys. Mind you, Bran could become a dragon-rider. Warging doesn't require him to be on the dragon's back. Stunning trailer, so much to see. I can't decide whether Arya has gone Beyond the Wall or whether it's just winter where she is. (I'm hoping she's passing through the woods around Harrenhal and about to reunite with her direwolf.) Wouldn't it be odd if Cersei hadn't recalled Littlefinger to be her royal treasurer? My money, if I had any, would be on the Iron Bank of Braavos sponsoring any opposition to her rule. Are we seeing Casterly Rock here in the trailer? Is Jamie based there now?

    Viserys Procuring Alliances

    Thanks for the link; that was fascinating, and what a strange life she must have led. I did wonder why Viserys hadn't formed some alliance with Dorne, or even snuck back there, but I guess Prince Doran was too shrewd to allow him refuge. Varys would have known where he was, and it might have given Robert an excuse to invade Dorne. Also, I suppose that Viserys would have also married Daenerys eventually?

    How have you started reading the aSoIaF books?

    I already loved anything to do with Tolkien's LOTR, murder mysteries and history. Several people recommended the author to me at SF cons in Ireland, but I was studying then, no money or time to read. I finally got around to buying the first book in November a few years ago. I figured that if I liked the first one, the series might be a good winter read. (Obviously I didn't know it would be like stepping through the wardrobe into Narnia.) Game of Thrones turned out to be brilliant, one of those rare writers that really draws you in. I rushed out and bought the others in the series as soon as I could and I'm pretty obsessed now - but knew nobody to talk about the books with. Luckily one friend got hooked on the HBO series, and started asking me for background and backstories. So we regularly ring & email each other with our theories. At the moment we're just waiting... sipping coffee from the GOT mugs my friend gave me for Christmas. I'm currently dying for the Winds of Winter to come out, and painting a door-sized map of Westeros to curb my impatience. This helps us to follow the plots, and ask 'what if?' And rereading book 1. I hope you all had an enjoyable St Patrick's Day.
