    After thinking about the horse, I don't think it was at the ToJ in the first place. A normal horse would have been switched a couple of times during the war. The best bet for a horse change would be after Ned rushed for 2 weeks towards King's Landing.

    We are not discussing RLJ, we are discussing the tower of joy and it's connections to the north. For some people the topic of RLJ and TOJ may be the same, they are not. e.g. as far as I know Lady Dustin and the red stallion play no role in RLJ.

    And would you, in your wisdom, explain which version of RLJ is the simple one. Because RLJ can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. It is stated as "Jon is most likely the son of R+L" but most things discussed within the theory have nothing to do with this simplistic approach. Like our tower of joy discussion. RLJ can be true and yet have nothing to do with the TOJ at all. So what is your point if I may ask ?

    I guess bastards count as house members now.

    I don't even know any more what it means to be a female member of house Targaryen. Unmarried daughter of a male Targaryen ? married a male Targaryen ?

    1. As has been pointed out in the past, Ned and Lady Dustin both had about 15 years to recover the remains. Did she ever visit the Tower of Joy ? That is the whole problem I have with the scenario. Both of them didn't really care to return the bones in the aftermath. 2. Lady Dustin (and a lot whole of other characters) come to the conclusion, that Lyanna's bones are in the crypts and that Lyanna and Lord Dustin died very far away in close proximity. If only one of those conditions is not true, the conclusion about the slap in the face is wrong. The Red Stallion is a hint and the statue in the crypt a recurring question. Why did Ned choose a statue for Lyanna over the ancient rules and traditions ? Because he promised her something ? So he "slaps" the tradition who gets a statue. Either way, it is remarkable that Ned gets more problems with Lady Dustin over the bones in the statue than with his own family (Benjen).

    It is possible. I don't know where Randyll Tarly was during the siege of Storms End. For me the second Targaryen host at Storms End was always the most logical location to flee to and regroup. Plus the location was close to Dragonstone and the fleet, so there was still a chance to turn the situation around. That has always been the point I don't understand. Not that it was not done, more like that it was not tried. That is also the reason why I am so suspicious about Margaery and Loras. There is something fishy in the way they behave since book one. Like a second communication layer.

    Yeah, but that has always kind of been the situation as the location makes no sense when there are safe castles around.

    I really don't get the point made around the Dustin stallion. We know that Ned and his buddies had at least 7 horses when they arrived, we can assume the KG had their own. There is enough transport capability. He simply choose to bury the corpses there with the stones of the "tower", which is a very practical solution. I don't know why house Dayne would open the cairn or why Lady Dustin is mad about a soldier buried far away. That seems to be a rather common end for a soldier. The entire problem seems to evolve around the Lady Lyanna bone special delivery service. Lady Dustin has a point there. The question is why she thinks Lyanna was at the same place as Lord Dustin. Because Ned rode south ? I honestly think Lady Lyanna's statue is the solution to a lot of open questions and somebody should open it.

    Why would Varys then run to Dany in the show ?

    Somehow this creates an image in my mind of Leaf and a tribe of children. Leaf walked the world of man, surely a tribe of Leafes could appear to be a tribe of First men.

    Yes and that is why I think it tells us something about Stannis: purpose > medium for Stannis, even if the medium is the purpose in another case. Stannis will totally do anything for the purpose, even sacrificing his other goals just to survive.

    He is a hypocrite exactly because he does what benefits him. He claimed the Iron Throne because Robert had no trueborn children. That is the entire point of the civil war. According to his own declaration Jon can not be Lord, because he is not trueborn. Robert saw Joeffrey as his son, this is as legitimized as it gets. That's the point, Stannis does what helps him, not what is consistent. And btw. Edric Storm is legitimized. That is the other point. Stannis is a hypocrite through and through. Ignoring legitimized Edric and "son" Joeffrey just to put another bastard(Jon) on a throne. The situation between Jon and Edric is not much different. Both are more ore less legitimized bastards with a claim to an empty throne. All men know me for the trueborn son of Steffon Baratheon, Lord of Storm's End, by his lady wife Cassana of House Estermont. I declare upon the honor of my House that my beloved brother Robert, our late king, left no trueborn issue of his body, the boy Joffrey, the boy Tommen, and the girl Myrcella being abominations born of incest between Cersei Lannister and her brother Jaime the Kingslayer. By right of birth and blood, I do this day lay claim to the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. Let all true men declare their loyalty. Done in the Light of the Lord, under the sign and seal of Stannis of House Baratheon, the First of His Name, King of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men, and Lord of the Seven Kingdoms.

    I actually find it interesting when compared with Edric Storm. Shows what a hypocrate Stannis is.

    honestly ? just heat. We had a very long summer and the Wall is cracking. The sonic wave from the horn may be the final nail, but the cracking and melting is the problem.
